I Peter 3:15 (NIV)
“15 But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,”
It is our goal here at Good Warfare Communications to offer training in apologetics for everyday life. We want to train individuals on how to answer or challenge dialogue around the water cooler. Yet we also want to challenge the Christian to stretch their mind and being to change the way the think and speak.
Dr. Douglas Groothuis said that when he teaches in church he will not “dumb down” his vocabulary nor his complex ideas. He taught apologetics in his local church and the response he received was amazing. The congregation said they loved having to look up the words and wrestle with the complex ideas. (paraphrased)
We want to help train Christians to be workman that can rightly divide the word of truth. This means for some they will rise up to the level of the challenge, others will receive it like water in the desert.
The key is to imbue you all with the confidence so that you can push back in a conversation, without yelling or elevating your voice and actions. A good soldier knows both how and when to attack and how and when to defend himself.
We hope you are here because you want to learn, you want to be challenged, and you are tired of not knowing why you believe what you say you believe. We want to help you achieve and receive the callings and directives in Proverbs chapter one:
Proverbs 1:2-7 (NIV)
2 for gaining wisdom and instruction;
for understanding words of insight;
3 for receiving instruction in prudent behavior,
doing what is right and just and fair;
4 for giving prudence to those who are simple,
knowledge and discretion to the young—
5 let the wise listen and add to their learning,
and let the discerning get guidance—
6 for understanding proverbs and parables,
the sayings and riddles of the wise.
7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,
but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
