GOD IS REAL
Apologetics: Objective reasons and evidence that Christianity is true, and communicating this truth to the world. - Cross Examined
"But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. Do not fear their threats; do not be frightened. 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."
1 Peter 3:15
When I was in college, the majority of my peers were Muslims or Atheists. Many of my professors would openly and frequently shoot down Christianity as a man-made myth, and Christian morals were seen by most as pointless and offensive. Up until that point in my life I was only surrounded by like-minded Christians, so this environment was a complete shock to me. My faith was challenged every day.
This was a hard season for me. I started having doubts and really wondered if there were any answers or evidence to back up my beliefs. This is when I found and became passionate about Apologetics. As I researched the answers to my questions, I quickly realized that the anti-Christian claims my professors were making were completely false. They were based on prejudice rather than actual reason. The deeper I went into apologetics, the more reassured I was that all known reason and evidence point directly to Christianity as the absolute truth.
My prayer is that I can point you in the direction of this reason and evidence so that you will have an even stronger foundation for your faith and solid answers for yourself and people in your life that are seeking the truth. If you are wrestling with doubt, I have good news for you girl. There ARE answers to your questions. All you have to do is be willing to read a little. , Chloe
