Apologetics—With SO Many… How Can I Know | February 17, 2019

 

“I am the LORD, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God.” Isaiah 45:5a

Why (or How) Should We “Do” Apologetics?
It produces confidence
Because I (am) said so!
Do so with gentleness and respect 1Peter 3:15

Who is asking?
Some are hostile to Christians Matthew 7:6
Some are earnestly seeking Jeremiah 29:13-14
Some are believers looking to be prepared 1Peter 3:15

Questions Covered So Far…
The Question of Evil
The Moral Law
Historical Evidence for the Bible

 

But With So Many Religions…
The three “largest” religions…
1. Christianity | 2.4 billioN | 1 Trinitarian God
2. Islam | 1.8 billion | 1 God only
3. Hinduism | 1.2 billion | 330+ million gods

 

Many “gods”… is not new
Ten plagues | Exodus 7-11
Dagon Philistines | 1 Samuel 5:1-4
A god we don’t even know | Acts 17:22-23

What is Truth?
Exclusivity is a fundamental property of truth
Examine exclusivity to see if it’s true
Reincarnation… it’s what you do…
Paradise (in Islam)… karma!
Heaven (in Christianity)… REDEMPTION! (through Grace)
