Apologetics A couple of months ago, being pretty ignorant, I had to ask myself, what exactly is Apologetics. After a little research and a few lectures from my Professors, I learned that it is the defense of Christian faith, usually on intellectual issues. (Horton 640). There are many arguments that can be used in order to defend the faith, however, I will focus on four arguments, ontological, Natural Theology, accuracy of scriptures, and personal miracles. First is the ontological argument. Human beings almost universally acknowledge that there is something, or someone, beyond themselves and that in some way, or ways, they are responsible to that something or someone (Railey/Aker 40). This ...

Catholic Apologetics The Apocrypha: Tobit, Judith, Wisdom, Ecclesiasticus, Baruch, 1 and 2 Maccabees The Protestant argument is that the Catholic Church added the 7 books known as the Apocrypha to the Canon Bible at the Council of Trent in the mid-16th century (after the reformation) to back up things the Church taught Reformation: 1517 Martin Luther Council of Trent: 1545-48, 51-52, 62-63 The truth is that these books were part of the original Canon. They were there in 1442 at the Council of Florence. These books had beed a part of the Christian Canon dating back to the first Canon developed at the Synod of Hippo in 393.

Arseniev's Revelation of Life Eternal A Review of Revelation of Life Eternal Nicholas Arseniev was a professor of New Testament and Apologetics at St. Vladimirs He wrote over 174 articles and books and died in 1977. His Revelation of Life Eternal is described as "an introduction to the Christian message." It pulls together many different mystic perceptions and beliefs, and it is an excellent entry into the diverse world of Christian Mysticism. The introduction quickly pulls the reader in by asking several basic questions about why religion even exists at all.

- C S Lewis - 994 words
C. S. Lewis C. S. Lewis, a well-known author and apologist, is best known by people of all ages for his seven volume series entitled The Chronicles of Narnia. As Lewis wrote about the land of Narnia, an imaginary world visited by children of this world, he had two obvious purposes: to entertain the readers and to suggest analogies of the Christian faith. Although some feel that his stories are violent, Lewis is successful at using fiction to open peoples hearts to accepting Christ as their Savior because he first entertains the audience with a wonderful story. Lewis talked about how he came to write the books of Narnia, saying that they "all began with a picture of a Faun carrying an umbrell ...

... ering quotes of those who support the Christianity found in The Chronicles and its use in the secular classroom. In an article found in The Horn Book Magazine, Lillian H. Smith feels Lewis is successful at entertaining children because of his strong talents as a "picturemaker" (Martin 4).

This is partially due to the fact that teachers are not allowed to talk about Christianity in the secular classroom. English professor Dr. Corbin Scott Cornel ...

- Creationism - 1,390 words
Creationism Creationism is a religious metaphysical theory about the origin of the universe. It is not a scientific theory. Technically, creationism is not necessarily connected to any particular religion. It simply requires a belief in a Creator. Millions of Christians and non-Christians believe there is a Creator of the universe and that scientific theories such as the the theory of evolution do not conflict with belief in a Creator. However, fundamentalist Christians such as Ronald Reagan and Jerry Falwell, have co-opted the term 'creationism' and it is now difficult to refer to creationism without being understood as referring to fundamentalist Christians who (a) take the stories in Gene ...

... approximately every 24 hours on its axis. From where do we get our month? It comes from the moon circling the earth once approximately every 28 days. From where does our year come? It takes the earth approximately 365.26 days to go around the sun. `But where do we get our week?' There is no purely natural explanation for the week. The explanation, instead, is found in Exodus 20:11 (cf., Exodus 31:17): "for in six days Jehovah made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested on the seventh day...." The week is an entirely universal phenomenon. Yet there is no purely natural explanation for it. Little wonder Isaiah wrote (40:26): "Lift up your eyes on high, and behold wh ...
