Today, the world has such a diverse culture of religions and beliefs. To label a group especially like the apologetics ministry as a cult is seeming extreme. Here is some information you got to know about them.
Some of basic questions that are being asked are what is the term apologetics even mean. That to start with, it is deriving from Greek words apologia. Moreover, it comes derived on similar words like English nouns apology then its adjective called apologetic and meaning to be significantly not alike. In the reference of that Greek work it means to be a legal defense for one self, similarly on speeches of modern day defenses lawyers are making on behalf of the clients.
But when it comes to Christian apologetics, that is defined to be on tasks to develop and share some arguments on rationality and truths of religion of Christianity and its irrationality and falsehood by coming with alternatives. Their aim is to strengthen faiths of believers then provoke those not believing on considering Christ. The definition significance would only come clearer all throughout if you read more.
However, for this point herein, it comes significant on emphasizing these arguments rather on contexts referring to reasoned, logical cases rather than on styles including to argumentative based. The apologetics should only include both sharing and developing the arguments. That only is not solely and purely academical exercises that are conducted on ivory towers.
These are engagements done practical to real people with real problems. You would also be noticing of arguments from two sides that they are seeking on developing. That for positive cases for Christianity and negative cases against beliefs of alternative systems. Moreover, what primary goal they seek is not to developing arguments cleverly but on seeing people being led to the faith and to strengthen them.
There were writers from history who were referred generally as apologists. The things they have written collectively are showing three main concerns. First of all, that is focusing on defending Christianity against accusations of false natures that they were sexually immoral, atheists, or even cannibals. Arguing for truths of these religion in bases that it has fulfilled what the prophecies of old testament has provided.
That also is including on showing their religion is superior. Those other people who were eminent during this periods were disparaged of what approach they had to apologists. These differences of opinions are still continuing to until today on dividing the evangelicals today. Some though has positive approaches towards the apologetics.
They are believing that only the truth of God is the sole truth and such is very significant for debates philosophically and whereas other people are quite suspicious of them. They would even still argue if they still need on putting their energies to gospel proclaiming instead.
As mentioned before, there are three main purposes that this ministry is aiming at. First, is the arguments they make for truth of Christian faith and their refuting arguments from accusations made against them. Lastly is on refuting beliefs opposite to them and undermining their belief foundations.
