While OAFC doesn't teach youth to use apologetics at the door during out survey, we actually are constantly teaching kids apologetics through our Dramas and Puppet Shows. Kids learn how to respond to different worldviews and different attacks on their faith in safe, organized environments so that when they leave an outreach training weekend they are prepared to "give an answer" (1 Pet. 3). That's what apologetics, as a discipline, is.
Yet, here, I wanted to set forth some basic apologetics that Christians should have at the ready, as shields against the flaming arrows of the evil one (Eph. 6). And, as Peter points out in his epistle, by having an apologetic ready, it can not only defend us, but also possibly help someone overcome their doubts about Christ and so come in faith.
So in the days to come, we'll post questions and answers to tough questions that have been raised about the Bible and the Church and Christ in order that you may be equipped every day at any moment to give a reason for the hope that is within you with gentleness and respect (1 Pet. 2). So bookmark this page, like it, follow it, and even submit some questions of your own. It may take time, but we'll try to give a solid, yet simple, answer for each one.
I also encourage you to check out some great resources on apologetics. CPH has a great one "Making the Case for Christianity," and Dr. Paul Maier has a fabulous one titled "In the Fullness of Time: a historian looks at Christmas, Easter, and the Early Church." There are many others out there. Go check 'em out.
