Welcome to my website. My name is Rob Lundberg and I have been involved in various facets of church, student and campus ministry. My first exposure to the need for doing apologetics came early when I found that many Christians today would have difficulty giving a response to the most basic of skeptical objections.
Peter’s mandate to “honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect. . .” (1 Peter 3:15) has never been more important and needed to day.
No matter if it is from the cults, the New Age ideologies coming from the worldview of the “green dragon,” the world religions (i.e., Islam), or the new spiritualities, believers are needing to know how to answer the challenges so that we can share the good news that “Jesus died for our sins, according to the Scriptures, He was buried, and He rose on the third according to the Scriptures.” (1 Corinthians 15:3,4).
Christianity is the only “religion” that has the best answers to life’s challenges. This is because Jesus is risen from the dead. If Jesus is risen from the dead, then Christianity is true. The discipline of apologetics helps us validate Christian truth. (See our graphic in the header)
Apologetics is the new evangelism. If you have tried doing evangelism in our post truth culture, chances are you have run into someone who may be hostile or throw down an objection. Apologetics helps clear the bushes away so that those who are skeptical to see Jesus more clearly.
Apologetics is the new discipleship. Ephesians 4:12 speaks about equipping believers. With many believers facing the challenges from the culture, we need to be equipping them to give a clear answer to show that Christianity has good answers.
Apologetics is good for refuting error. The church is facing many challenges from false teachers in the Prosperity/Word Faith theology, New Apostolic Reformation and in recent years Progressive Christianity, the Scriptures remind us that,
“for though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses.We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ,” (2 Corinthians 10:3,4)
