Bible Literacy, Apologetics, being able to explain sound Theology is VERY important for a Christian.
After watching THE AMERICAN GOSPEL Documentaries my entire world truly flipped upside down. Even though I had been a Christian since I was 11, grew up in a Christian family and in the church, went to Bible College, and had done ministry it was like hearing the true Gospel for the very first time.
Since then I have been extremely passionate and determined to study Reformed Theology and Apologetics.
God has been so good to bless me with a Spiritual Mentor/Teacher and I have been going through Apologia Academy.
I don’t ever intend on debating or being a solidified Apologist or Theologian but it’s become vitally important for me to know how to defend the Bible and the true Gospel.
Jude 1:3 Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt compelled to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to God’s holy people.
2 Corinthians 10:5 We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ.
1 Peter 3:15 but honor the Messiah as Lord in your hearts. Always be ready to give a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you.
2 Timothy 4:2 Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage–with great patience and careful instruction.
Philippians 1:16 The latter do so out of love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel.
