The cost for the two-year master’s degree is not reported online, but it is estimated to cost twice as much as the one-year degree, and further additional costs will likely apply. Instead, they allowed their community to become desecrated with foreign gods and dug their own cisterns in their own way. The social media platforms restrict the market that you can reach. It's a very common rebuke when I'm told that while it's good that I have knowledge but not sharing the truth in love is absolutely dangerous.

Moreover, the idea that religions facilitate acts that cause the negative attitudes toward especially religious out-groups has relatively a long theoretical and empirical history in social psychology (Allport & Ross, 1967; Altemeyer & Hunsberger, 1992; Spilka, 1986; Whitley & Bernard,1999) and is the main idea behind the evolutionary origins of religion (Atran & Heinrich, 2010; Bering, 2011; Norenzayan & Shariff, 2008; Preston & Ritter, 2013; Rand et al., 2014; Shariff & Norenzay...

The use of ALL CAPITAL LETTERS IS CONSIDERED SHOUTING! Till a few decades ago they could easily be separated from each other so that those who practice Apologetics did not need to know about Polemics, and those who specialized in Polemics did not have to study apologetics. Even Titus 3:5, which mentions "the washing of regeneration," was universally understood to refer to water baptism. In moral apologetics, the arguments for man's sinfulness and man's need for redemption are stressed.

When I began I used, if I were giving two lectures, to devote the first to mere theism; but I soon gave up this method because it seemed to arouse little interest.

The website's purpose is to facilitate the distribution of the BCS evangelization/apologetics materials and ideas. His approach-that of positive apologetics-gives careful attention to crucial questions and concerns, including: the relationship of faith and reason, the existence of God, the problems of historical knowledge and miracles, the personal claims of Christ, and the historicity of the resurrection of Jesus. The defense of Socrates as presented by Plato and Xenophon was an apologia against charges of “corrupting the young, and … not believing in the gods in whom the city believes, but in other daimonia that are novel”. [5] In later use ‘apologia’ sometimes took a literary form in early Christian discourse as an example of the integration of educated Christians into the cultural life of the Roman Empire, particularly during the “little peace” of the 3rd century, [6] and of their participation in the Greek intellectual movement broadly known as the Second Sophistic. [7] The Christian apologists of the early Church did not reject Greek philosophy, but attempted to show the positive value of Christianity in dynamic relation to the Greek rationalist tradition. [8] In the 2nd century, apologetics was a defense or explanation of Christianity, [9] addressed to those standing in opposition and those yet to form an opinion, such as emperors and other authority figures, or potential converts. [10] The earliest martyr narrative has the spokesman for the persecuted present a defense in the apologetic mode: Christianity was a rational religion that worshipped only God, and although Christians were law-abiding citizens willing to honor the emperor, their belief in a single divinity prevented them from taking the loyalty oaths that acknowledged the emperor’s divinity. [11] The apologetic historiography in the Acts of the Apostles presented Christianity as a religious movement at home within the Roman Empire and no threat to it, and was a model for the first major historian of the Church, Eusebius. [12] Apologetics might also be directed to Christians already within the community explain their beliefs and justify positions. [10] Origen ‘s apologetic Contra Celsum, for instance, provided a defense against the arguments of a critic dead for decades to provide answers to doubting Christians lacking immediate answers to the questions raised.

Usually, quotes should be limited to a paragraph or two, and the law dictates that quoting more than 50% of a document is a copyright violation. Reymond argues that believers should not even attempt such proofs. When in doubt, save thy message overnight and reread it in the light of the dawn. When you think about this a little further, here you have a person who potentially could be the second most powerful man in the entirety of the free world who misses the basic message of Scripture.

Douglas Groothuis is a long time Christian apologist, author and professor of philosophy at Denver Seminary and Metropolitan State College of Denver. Why, here we have the apostle John as our key (indeed, only) witness, writing even longer after the event than fellow storyteller Luke (John 2). In other words, the prehistoric is much more believed in than the historic. (2) He has a distrust (very rational in the state of his knowledge) of ancient texts.

There is virtually no one who does not know children who have suffered greatly from divorce. If we have received the truth of the Gospel, then we must also be ready to contend for it, as 2 Timothy 2:24-26 teaches. Our social conscience comes largely from the religion of Moses.' In large measure it is only because of other verses in the Bible commanding us to love our neighbors and to love the stranger that the verses commanding total war trouble us. '[But] to find the spirit of the religion of the Old Testament in Joshua,' Kaufmann noted, 'is like finding the distinctive genius of America in the men who slaughtered the Indians.'" [ 52 ] While Rabbi Telushkin certainly deserves respect for at least mentioning this problem, and while it would certainly be wrong to blame the ancient Israelites or even Jews for such horrid morals of warfare [ 53 ], the question arises - if it is indeed the Bible which "sensitized us" to more humane ethics - why it took more than two millennia before genocide was first officially addressed as a crime by a committee of societies consisting of a majority of Bible believers (incidentally this was the achievement of the tireless efforts of an infidel Jewish lawyer, Raphael Lemkin [ 54 ]).

So, the fundamental moral rule is to do unto others what you would like them to do to you. The continued opposition between Catholicism and Protestantism in the last century resulted in the production of a number of noteworthy apologetic writings: Möhler, "Symbolism", published in Germany in 1832, which has gone through many editions in English; Balmes, "Protestantism and Catholicity Compared in their Effects on the Civilization of Europe", a Spanish work published in English in 1840 (Baltimore); the works of the three illustrious English cardinals, Wiseman, Newman, and Manning, most of whose writings have a bearing on apologetics.
