Answers to Objections to Doing Apologetics, Part 2 (The Reasons to Believe #11)

Release date: December 8, 2013

Our quote for today is from C.S. Lewis. He said, “If you ask why we should obey God, in the last resort the answer is, ‘I am.’ To know God is to know that our obedience is due to Him.”

Our Scripture for today is 2 Corinthians 10:5-6. It reads, “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.”

Our Reason to Believe powerpoint today is titled “Answers to Objections to Doing Apologetics” (part 2) from “The Handbook of Christian Apologetics” by Peter Kreeft and Ronald K. Tacelli:

A deeper reason why some people scorn apologetic reasoning is that they decide whether to believe or not with their hearts much more than with their heads. Even the most perfect argument does not move people as much as emotion, desire and concrete experience. Most of us know that our heart is our center, not our head. But apologetics gets at the heart through the head. The head is important precisely because it is a gate to the heart. We can love only what we know.
