The Bible clearly calls for God’s people to be ready to defend the truth of His word. But with society embracing secularism, churches have struggled to adequately train their members in Christian apologetics. As a result, atheism among young people has doubled and the number of young adults leaving the church is at an all-time high. The Daily Apologist is an organization within churches of Christ working to solve this problem by equipping Christians and engaging culture.
The Raleigh Church of Christ is pleased to be a sponsor for The Daily Apologist. We are providing financial support, and TDA will meet annually with congregation leaders to discuss the work. Dean Meadows, the president of TDA, will be the liaison between TDA and RCC.
Our primary function is to be spiritual advisors to the team at TDA as they go about their mission. When needed, the team is more than welcome to solicit our advice on a variety of matters stemming from business strategies, personal matters, and spiritual growth.
in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect
– 1 Peter 3:15
January 2021 Update
Dear Apologetics Family,
Wow! We are only one month into 2021, and I have logged some serious miles in promoting The Daily Apologist.
At the beginning of the year, I made my way to Dallas for the Mighty Men’s Mentoring Conference, for a fantastic time of reuniting with old friends and developing new relationships. “Unbearded” was the theme of the conference. It was a time of great reflection, emotion, and fellowship. Several people came up to me and mentioned they had seen a debate, watched a podcast, read a blog, or viewed a Twitter Tuesday. Furthermore, it was fantastic that many dads purchased our book, Equip and Engage: Answering 21st Century Atheism.
This past weekend I journeyed to Huron, South Dakota for the Risen Seminar. We examined the resurrection, and had some excellent post-presentation discussions. The uniqueness of this seminar is that a good number of attendees were not Christians! I cannot speak highly enough of the work done by the group at Huron!
Recently, I debated Jim Barrows, a co-host of The Atheist Experience on the existence of God. Specifically, we debated the Kalam Cosmological Argument and whether or not it was sound. It was a cordial, in-depth discussion. I would encourage you all to take a look at the debate.
The icing on the cake for January is our online Apologetics 101 course. In the three weeks since we’ve promoted the class, 196 students have registered for the class. There has not been one day in which we did not add at least one new student. These students come from America, Africa, the Netherlands, and the Scandinavian countries! If you want a different type of approach to apologetics, you should register today at www.thedailyapologist.com/courses.
Of course, without committed donors and prayer warriors like you, none of this is possible. On behalf of the team at The Daily Apologist, thank you!
Executive Director, The Daily Apologist
