Apologetics: The Why Behind the What

Apologetics: (ap·o·lo·gi·a) - A formal written defense of your beliefs

"Truth is the most valuable thing mankind needs to live a purposed life, yet it is the greatest casualty of the past century. When we honestly and earnestly search for truth, we find Jesus Christ." Pastor Dan Gilman

The process for anyone in search of truth should be to:


1.      Unbiasedly consider as much evidence as possible to gain knowledge.

2.      Define a valid worldview based on the knowledge they’ve gained. 

*Every worldview must answer the questions of

Origin, Meaning, Morality and Destiny.

3.      Live a purposed life with the answers they’ve found.


The search for truth is by far the most important endeavor we will ever invest in because our understanding of truth shapes our worldview. Our worldview must be founded on solid evidence from many arenas of study. Much of the evidence for Theism is based on verified science, history, mathematical probabilities and sound philosophy, but these realms of study can only take us so far. We are still left with mounds of real evidential data that defy natural explanation. If we really want to discover the truth, we should as Socrates himself advised:

“Dare to follow the evidence wherever it leads”. 

Social Justice is NOT Biblical Justice


Our country and our faith are under attack by a sinister force. You may be one of many who rightly fight for justice in our society. We should all want justice because our God is a just God. We are called by Christ to love others and not judge those outside the church. But for those in the church, we are called to spread the gospel and help one another stay aligned with Biblical ethics and morality.


Social Justice and Critical Race Theory have a thin veneer of righteousness but are actually based on evil and divisive Marxist ideology. Please take the time to educate yourself on this current attack that will, if allowed, destroy religious freedom in general and Christianity specifically. The video below will help give you a better, more accurate understanding of this issue. For more information on the speaker, go to https://www.voddiebaucham.org/.
