The ABC of Apologetics

Explaining and defending the Christian faith can seem a daunting job. Not only are believers to know what they themselves believe (doctrine, Bible passages, history, etc.), but to some extent they are to know what others believe. And this is even before thy step into the classroom to learn Apologetics 101.

It cannot be denied that the entire enterprise of defending the faith is large and at times complex. With so much to learn and memorize, the mind may explode. Yet it is still possible to distill the enterprise into a simple, yet profound, summary--something easy to remember, like the ABCs:

Always Be Christ-centered

This catchy, nice one-liner has more depth than it appears. Young and old can remember it, yet it will take a life-time to master.

To Always Be Christ-centered is to put Him first and foremost in the thoughts and hearts of believers. This is accomplished through Spirit-wrought reflection of any indwelling sin, repentance and fleeing to Christ. In other words, daily prayer, bible reading and attendance to the means of grace.

To Always Be Christ-centered is also to try to put Him first in our explanation of Christianity. Many questions that inquisitive minds have about Christianity can easily lead off the path of salvation. Recalling this ABC can help turn the dialogue around from the minutia to the major questions: who is Christ? why does He matter?

This ABC of a Christian defense of the faith is a helpful tool. It should not replace hard work, prayer and humility but should enhance these efforts. The next time an unexpected question shots from the blue, remember your ABC.
