We are called to be Ambassadors for Christ on Earth, sharing the Gospel. In a country like the United States, this requires greater use of the intellect because, like other western societies, many people have become cynical and distrust authority. Learning apologetics helps to answer tough questions that challenge the Christian, and/or attempt to undermine the Christian faith. Jesus has invited us to proclaim the Kingdom of God, sharing the good news, which often requires removing intellectual and/or emotional stumbling blocks to faith. Ultimately, only God can save a person, but we’re called to do our part.— Lisa Quintana (from, Is Apologetics Training “Highly Overrated”?)
