Proper Approach to Apologetics


Mohler writes concerning Paul’s witness in Acts 17,

This text reminds us that a proper Christian apologetic begins in spiritual concern, not in intellectual snobbery or scorn. We preach Christ, not because Christianity is merely a superior philosophy or worldview, nor because we have been smart enough to embrace the Gospel, but because we have met the Savior, we have been claimed by the Gospel, we have been transformed by the renewing of our minds.
