The Gentle Art of Faith Defense

Faith in Stone

The Art of Faith Defense is called Apologetics. It may sound like someone is making an “apology,” but that’s not the meaning. It comes from the Greek word apologia and means “a speech made in defense, a verbal defense, to give an answer in defense.” In ancient Greece, the prosecution in a trial would deliver their kategoria (accusation, charge). The defendant would respond with an apologia (defense, reasoned statement or argument). God calls on Christians to defend their faith verbally.

Why We Need Faith Defense

Faith in Stone

The art of faith defense is as old as the history of the human race. In fact, faith defense was the first art God taught the first human being.

“Then the LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it. And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, ‘Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.” Genesis 2:15-17

God Created Adam, then placed him in the Garden of Eden and told him to “tend and keep it.” Remember that Moses, the author of Genesis, wrote everything God told him about the beginning of all things in the Hebrew language. What do the words “tend and keep it” mean in ancient Hebrew. “Tend” means to “work, labor” in the Garden. “Keep” means to “guard, protect, keep safe, preserve” the Garden. We understand that a garden needs someone working in it to plant and harvest, but why the need to protect it?
