Time to Think: 14 Christian Apologetics Quotes

Because of its cultural pervasiveness, radical skepticism also seeps into the church. Christians cannot avoid wrestling with the questions culture is asking. If belief in God is irrational, as Dawkins argues, why should we believe in Him? If the New Testament is unreliable, as Ehrman argues, why should we trust what it says? Radical skepticism becomes an obstacle to faith for unbelievers, and a temptation for believers to abandon the faith. In the language of Paul, radical skepticism is a “stronghold” (2 Corinthians 10:4,5). What do Christians do with strongholds? “We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” Apologetics refutes skeptical arguments so unbelievers can become believers and believers can mature spiritually. Therefore, in our cultural context, both evangelism and discipleship require apologetics. — George Wood (from, Speaking the Truth in Love)
