As Apologists we evangelize from our hearts to the hearts of others by the use of evidence and reason.
The key to Apologetics is evidence & reason.
The purpose of Apologetics is to free the hearts of those of other worldviews from the bondage of faith in a lie, by the use of evidence & reason.
The purpose of Apologetics within the Christian worldview is to free hearts from the bondage of their doubt, by the use of evidence & reason.
The same process used to convince those on the other side of Salvation is the same used to strengthen and empower those on this side of Salvation.
Whether preaching to the choir or evangelizing to the world, we cannot address false doubt or false faith, nor reinforce true doubt or true faith without Apologetics.
We must evangelize from our hearts with reason.
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’
