If you have tried to get an apologetic ministry started in your church or if you have tried to get Christians to join you in your apologetic pursuit and have been shut down, you may have heard some of these objections. Bobby gives us quick answers to some of the most common objections to doing apologetics.
Apologists just like to argue.
Apologetics are used to argue with others when we should love them.
People aren’t argued into heaven.
The Gospel needs to be proclaimed, not defended.
Apologetics is not what my congregation is looking for because they need sermons that help them cope with the burdens and stresses of the coming week.
Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up. 1 Corinthians 8:1
Nobody changed religions because they lost a debate.

Do you ever doubt your ability to answer bigger than life questions like, “Why do I exist? What is the purpose of life? Can I know God? If so, how? Are miracles possible?” And if God exists what’s with all the evil in the world? Do questions like these ever nag at you? If so, you’ve come to the right podcast. I too am a fellow wonderer who thinks about stuff like this.
I (Bobby Conway) am the founder and host of the rapidly-growing ministry, The One Minute Apologist, which is found on YouTube and at www.oneminuteapologist.com. Here I provide quick, credible answers to apologetic questions that resource people with a hunger to defend their Christian faith. These videos will often include interviews. I’ve had the privilege of interviewing some of the world leading Christian apologists. Among them are: William Lane Craig, Josh McDowell, Hank Hanegraaff, JP Moreland, Norman Geisler, Frank Turek, and many more.
