How Christian Apologetics Navigate Today’s Media

by Bridget on August 30, 2012

Christian apologetics are a sect of the Christian faith whose sole aim is to help reconcile the seemingly incompatible differences between faith and science. These brave individuals offer only rational and logical arguments to help counterbalance the attacks from the modern scientific community against creation science. It can sometimes be very difficult for individuals to get their particular beliefs across in an honest and open debate, as contention and bias from the mainstream media has grown rampantly in the last several years towards believers. Over the centuries, however, Christian apologetics have made many wonderful strides for their cause, spreading the message of the Bible all over the world to areas and people who would never otherwise have the chance to hear it.

Different Schools Of Thought

There are a number of different, logical arguments that apologetics employ to prove the existence of God. However, three of the oldest and most widely used arguments by apologetics are Biblical inspiration, philosophical arguments, and prophetic scripture. BY using a mixture of these three schools of thought, Creation apologetics are easily able to explain to individuals, who may have been skeptical, that the truth about God and the creation of the Universe can be easily understood if a person knows where to look. There are a number of different Bible passages that have given Christian apologetics perfectly logical arguments over the centuries, and these passages have a long and successfully history of motivating people to look deeper into Christianity.

Prominent Christian Apologetics

There have been many famous Christian apologetics throughout the years, including the Apostle Paul, Thomas Aquinas, and C.S. Lewis. All three of these transformative figures have played a significant role in the development and success of many of the World’s most well respected apologetics. Their inspirational and thought-provoking works have given many Christian apologetics a vast array of arguments and facts that they are able to use in everyday life conversations that they have with skeptics. These famous men have written some of the most well-versed and articulate pieces that have ever been created on the subject. Modern Christian apologetics owe a great debt of gratitude to these brilliant writers and philosophers.
Over the years, it has become more and more difficult for Christian apologetics to get their ideas and creation science out in a fair manner. Often times, their arguments are not articulated the way they are meant to be to the public by the media and scientific community. This can be very frustrating for people who are in the Christian community who know that if they would be better represented in the media, more people would be drawn to the things they are talking about and convert to Christianity. Thankfully, many Christian apologists remain undeterred by the bias the media shows them, and continue to preach the message of the Holy Bible with clarity, logic, and factual truths. While there may be many different types of Christian apologetics and methods for spreading the Gospel, they are all unified in their mission to bring the story of God’s creation to the rest of the World.
