With the Culture Going “Sidewards” Why Do We Need Apologetics More than Ever?
by Rob Lundberg
Some time ago, I shared with you about four dangerous trends that are confronting the church and the culture. Although the post was about four years ago, these four trends are still with us and moving forward with a vengeance. Also these trends confirm that nothing has changed since I rang the bell pointing out that the task of apologetics in the church is needed more than ever. People today have ratcheted up their living in a delusion of a humanistic, hedonistic, and sexually dysphoric existence, reflecting no need for a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Local Christian schools and high schools are not providing the equipping they need to insulate their students with solid reasons for the truth of the Christian faith. I will sometimes run into a student and ask them if I can survey them with three questions: Why are you a Christian and please do not use your testimony as the answer; why do you believe the Bible is true, and please do not tell that it says it is God’s Word; and is truth absolute or relative?
The answers that I get are nothing less than scary…
