Every Believer Confident: Apologetics for the Average Christian
1 Peter 3:15-16

What is Apologetics? Why Apologetics?

Apologetics means:     “to give an            .”
“to clear oneself of                .”
“to defend oneself                        .”
“the art of                .”

Apologetics is a natural part of             in which            to the gospel are overcome by means of reason and persuasion.
Apologetics is                                 . –Scott Oliphint

The starting point of apologetics is a                         that Jesus is the way, truth and life for every person.

No other belief system                 a person to God
No other object of worship is                         
Every person you meet needs                         more than they need anything else in the world
One of the best ways to become an effective apologist is to know                                    .

Confidence comes from                         
Being ready to give a defense means:
Invest                                 to learn answers
Have a mindset of                     to speak the truth
Have good reasons for          you believe what you believe
Treat the unbeliever with love and dignity

We don’t                                 
Our goal is not to                             
Our goal is not to show our                         
Our goal is to                                 
Lead an                 life so your words are backed by action

A clear conscience indicates a lifestyle of                         
A clear conscience prevents unbelievers from rejecting the truth of the gospel because of Christian
