Brian Auten of Apologetics315 on Apologetics and the Church

"I want to see churches start their own apologetics ministries because it is our scriptural mandate to 'always be prepared to give an answer.' Yet there often is very little preparation going on! When challenges to faith come, people struggle to find substantive answers. This may cause some believers to resort to a sort of 'believe it anyway' mentality; for others it causes them to abandon the faith altogether. Research by the Barna Group has shown that a majority of young people walk away from the faith around the time they go to college or university. They simply have not been equipped to deal with the secular challenges that come against their faith."

Courage and Godspeed,
