On Apologetics

"Why should/do I believe in God?" This is a question that is almost constantly being asked. Apologetics come up with elaborate arguments to convince people that God exists, or (more recently) to disprove the negative arguments of the New Atheists. This is all fine and good, however, transformation requires more than just clever arguments and the power of words. Good apologetics must be coupled with prayer and the power of the Holy Spirit for hearts to change. Below is an interesting sermon given by Australian theologian, Ben Meyers. He argues that at the center of Christianity is revelation, and it is by this revelation through Jesus Christ that we can believe in God. Think of Habermas and Licona's minimal facts approach and the fact that the disciples were transformed into boldness by what they had seen of the Resurrection. The incarnation of God in Jesus Christ is the greatest apologetic we have.
