Apologetics is a necessary discipline for the Christian faith. Jesus and the apostle Paul regularly defended their beliefs through rational arguments. The apostle Peter tells us to be ready to give a reason for the hope we have in Christ (1 Pet. 3:15). This lost world needs to hear and believe the gospel of God, so, when unbelievers ask questions about the truth and rationality of Christianity, we must be ready with sufficient answers, trusting in the Holy Spirit to apply the message to their souls (Acts 1:8). - Douglas Groothuis


  1. Professor Groothuis,

    I just want to commend you on your brave article about extending all forms of civil and legal rights to homosexuals. I am moved and in agreement with your notion that homosexuals belong in civil society and the Church.

    This very courageous of you, Professor Groothuis. Thank you for taking a dangerous viewpoint in an age of compromise.

  2. Doug, this is a very brave thing to confess. In today's world truth doesn't mean much. For you to defend the truth of Our Lord is among the most heroic things a man can do. Thank you for your bravery, courage, and integrity. I imagine it must be rather intimidating sometimes to do so but you do so with much boldness and without flinching.

    God Bless
