The Everlasting Gospel: Answers for Easter

I’m not just a science fiction author. If you’ve read my non-fiction book, Defending Genesis, you know I’m also a Christian apologist.
There have always been those who attack the Christian faith. To answer such challenges, the Church has always had its apologists. Apologetics is a branch of theology dedicated to providing reasons to believe and to the defense of the Gospel. The word ‘apologetics’ comes from the Greek work apologia, denoting a reasoned defense. This is the word used in 1 Peter 3:15, which commands us to:
“Be ready always to give an answer [apologia] to every man that asks you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear.”
As Easter approaches, one’s thoughts naturally turn to the resurrection of Christ. The resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth is the very lynch pin of Christianity. This is not overstatement. The Apostle Paul, who wrote much of the New Testament, noted that:

“If Christ be not raised, your faith is in vain, ye are yet in your sins. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. …what doth it profit me if the dead rise not? Let us eat and drink; for tomorrow we die. (I Corinthians 15:14, 16, 19 & 29b

Accordingly, I’ve assembled some of my articles from dealing with the issues surrounding the Resurrection. Ultimately, our hope is that the Christian’s faith will be strengthened and that those outside the faith might come to a saving knowledge of Christ Jesus through consideration of the evidences put forth and the leading of the Holy Spirit. God bless you in your search for faith and truth:

Until we reach The Last Door,
