65 Apologetics Questions Every Christian Parent Needs to Learn to Answer

December 30, 2013 Leave a comment

In prior posts, I’ve talked about why parents have to care about apologetics (the reasoned defense of Christianity) and I’ve shared resources for getting started with apologetics. I realize, however, that it can seem pretty ambiguous to have a goal of “learning apologetics.” We need to know the specific questions we most need to study and discuss with our kids; the ones that non-believers most frequently challenge Christians on and the ones that most frequently turn young adults away from faith after spending 18 years in church.

That’s the purpose of this post.

I want to give you a very specific list of 65 apologetics questions every Christian parent needs to learn to answer and discuss with their kids (in age appropriate ways). Of course, any such list is subjective. I created this list based on my own study and experience with engaging in these topics, with a special emphasis on the issues challenging young adults today.

You may not think I’ve narrowed it down much by giving you 65, but there are hundreds of questions that could have been listed! In case this looks overwhelming, I’ve highlighted in red my “top 20.” Start with those if you’re new to these topics.

I encourage you to take some time and challenge yourself here. Read each question and give yourself a “point” for each one you feel you could thoroughly answer. What would your score be if you had to answer these questions today?

William Lane Craig vs. Frank Zindler

I listened to a debate today between Craig and Zindler on “Atheism vs. Christianity or “Does God Exist”?

William Lane Craig won this debate by a long shot. Frank Zindler offered no evidence whatsoever to prove that God does not exist. It seemed to me that he had problems or questions on whether the Bible was historically reliable, whether it actually means what it says, and with the ethics of the scriptures.

Craig on the other hand took Zindler to task and not only did he offer proofs for God’s existence, but he also countered all the fallacies of his opponent and all the twisting of the scriptures of his opponent.

I recommend that if you have time that you should listen to this debate. You can find the debate  by clicking right here.
