Welcome to Existence of God.org!
The Existence of God website is dedicated to the disciplines of Christian philosophy and apologetics–with particular focus on the historicity of the resurrection and Christian-Muslim dialogue. The goal of this site is to offer equipping resources for sharing the Gospel with unbelievers in our contemporary culture and preparing believers to “always be prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks [us] for a reason for the hope that is in [us]; yet do[ing] it with gentleness and respect…” (2 Timothy 2:15; 1 Peter 3:15; Colossians 4:6)
For the past 40 years, I have been dedicated to the ministry of evangelism and have served as a teaching pastor. Most recently, I have conducted training courses in a number of churches, with a particular focus of equipping church members in sharing their faith with their Muslim friends and neighbors. It is my belief that Christian apologetics is vital to effectively reach people within our contemporary culture, and that every Christian, regardless of how ‘ungifted’ they may feel, can become an effective proclaimer of the Gospel in response to Christ’s Great Commission.
The articles I author in Featured Articles address historical evidences for the historicity of the resurrection, the deity of Christ, the trustworthiness of Scripture, Muslim challenges to the Christian worldview, and other contemporary topics. These also include excerpts, links to articles, videos and books from a variety of experts.
In the Equipping Resources section, I have highlighted what I consider to be some of the best equipping/training courses for the individual ambassador for Christ who wants to be an effective Christian case-maker to their friends, neighbors, family members, etc. I commend each of these resources to every church, for both small and large group study, to aid in equipping the members to be effective contemporary ambassadors for Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:20)
If you are a member of a church that conducts Bible studies, youth evangelism classes, or are seeking to learn about Christian outreach to Muslims or how to answer tough questions and challenges to the Gospel, and are in need of a guest speaker, please feel free to contact me at: 4Lane.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Together for His glory,
The term “apologetics” makes a lot more sense when we consider the meaning of the Greek word on which it is based—apologia. An apologia is a “defense,” a reasoned case proving the innocence of an accused person in court, or a demonstration of the correctness of an argument or belief. The object of apologetics is…to help open their eyes to the reality, reliability, and the relevance of the Christian faith.—Alister McGrath, President of Oxford Center for Christian Apologetics.
