That is what many folks believe. They are under the - false - impression that science, archaeology and centuries of scholarship have destroyed the foundations of Christianity. They reason there is no longer the need for a Creator, since evolution explains our existence. They believe, that the texts of the Bible have been corrupted over the centuries and its stories have been discredited by recent archaeological discoveries. 

As per recent Gallup polls it appears that not only fewer people than in the generation before us believe that the Bible is the Word of God, but also that the more education a person has, the less likely he/she is to believe in the Bible. Is that because the more educated have better reasons to reject the Bible or is it because they are more and longer indoctrinated with the 'gospel of science'? I think the latter!

The statistics are alarming: over 70%, that is almost 3 out of every 4, young Christians walk away from their faith when they are in the first years of college! These are young adults who were born and raised in Christian families. They went to church with their parents and likely attended church classes and youth groups. Perhaps they even went to Christian schools or were home schooled. Still, by the time they get to ‘live on their own’, which in most cases is when they go to college; they walk away from their faith, likely to never return again.

This is a grueling statistic. This is not just another poll we can ignore, but this is a society changing phenomenon. I know this to be true, not just from looking at it, but also from living it. I was part of this ‘walking away from the faith’ phenomenon in the 1960ies and 1970ies in the Netherlands. Being raised in a Christian family and spending my young years with my parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles ‘in church’ I, and most of my fellow students, lost my faith in high school/college. The result: the Netherlands, which was once founded on solid Christian values and considered for centuries to be a sound Christian nation, is now a country where about 50% of its citizens claim to be atheist and there are now possibly more active Muslims than Christians!

Are YOU Prepared to Answer?

  • Are you prepared to explain that you do not have to be ‘easy-believing’ and gullible to be a Christian but can base you faith on facts and evidences?
  • Are you prepared to explain that Christianity is grounded in history and its Biblical accounts are again and again confirmed by archaeology, secular history and non-Christian sources?
  • Are you prepared to explain that evolution is not a fact but a faulty model and lacks any evidence? In the words of a respected evolutionist: "When discussing organic evolution the only point of agreement seems to be: "It happened." Thereafter, there is little consensus, which at first sight must seem rather odd."
  • Are you prepared to explain how unique the person of Jesus of Nazareth is compared to anybody who ever lived and any of the founders or prophets of any of the other world-religions?

Christian Apologetics and Evidences

 

Christian Apologetics and Evidences

 

Christianity is grounded in facts and evidence, both historical and scientific. Its claims about God, God’s creation, God’s plan of redemption, the Bible, the ministry, miracles and above all – the resurrection of Jesus can be objectively verified through evidences by studying astronomy, physics, molecular biology and genetics, archaeology, history, the Bible and ancient non-Biblical documents. These claims are not merely imposed as “truth” by one person through some revelation. Therefore Christianity (and Judaism) stands on a foundation of evidence completely different from other religions. In comparison, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism and all the other religions of the world largely rely upon a revelation to one “prophet.” This prophet subsequently writes a book of his revelations, which becomes the “bible” on which the faith of his followers rests.

Jesus taught his apostles, who after His resurrection took the gospel message throughout the world. That message is still spread by Christians today. Unlike the approach of most other religions, non-believers are invited to hear the Word, assess the evidence themselves and by exercising their free will, choose to become (and remain) a believer. Unlike Islam, Christianity does not try to insulate its believers against the influence of other religions; rather it trains its followers to distinguish the evidence between true and false teachings. To do this the Christian believer must research and challenge, then verify and assess these first principles, the basic truths of the faith. A Christian needs to make up one’s own mind about this. As a Christian do not accept something as true just because someone tells you so. Accept only those truths that YOU, after careful consideration, believe to be TRUTH. 

The study of the evidences for the Christian faith is called Christian Apologetics. The word apologetics comes from the Greek απολογία (“apologia,” which means a verbal defense, answer, or reply). Therefore, Christian apologetics deals with all critics who oppose or question the revelation of God in Christ and the Bible. Christian apologetics includes complex subjects such as Biblical manuscript transmission, philosophy, biology, mathematics, evolution, and logic. Christian apologetics can also consist of simple answers to questions about Jesus or a Bible passage.

It is important to approach these questions and issues related to Christian apologetics with an open mind. Try to be objective and judge the information in such a manner. It is essential in apologetics to seek to avoid the bias of preconceived ideas. Presume innocence until guilt is proved. In Christian apologetics, position yourself to be the jury in a trial and insist upon objective evidence. Remember that the faith of a Christian is not afraid of open, honest inquiry; no truth fears investigation.
