Being a high school teacher of 32 years in Biological Sciences, and for the past 8 years at Washington State Community College in Marietta, I can attest to the fact that there has definitely been a decline in morals and right thinking in our schools. I can understand why our country founded on Christian principles by our forefathers has entered into a rapid moral decay since atheistic views are now being accepted more and more. I can remember going to elementary school . . . and having two Fridays in the month in which a religious education teacher would come to the school. She would read us Bible stories and teach us concerning morality and the proper treatment of other people. I can remember when we would start every day with a prayer. I used to offer a public prayer before every football game. I was very much impressed with Charles Pugh’s presentation on behalf of Warren Christian Apologetics Center. I appreciate the opportunity to assist in this great work, and I will continue to keep this project in my prayers.”

What Is Apologetics?
The field of study relating to the positive defense of the Christian faith and the refutation of unbelief is apologetics. The word apologetics is derived from the Greek word apologia (a-pə-lō-gē-ə). It appears in the following biblical passage: ". . . [A]lways be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks a reason for the hope that is in you . . .  (1 Peter 3:15). The word defense in this passage is from apologia. Rogers and Rogers say, "The word was often used of the argument for the defense in a court of law. . . . [I]t can also mean an informal explanation or defense of one's position" (575). “. . . [A]pologetics is the working out and presentation of intellectual, scientific, and philosophical arguments . . ." (Brown 51). All of this, by the very nature of the case, entails a logical (correctly reasoned) defense.
 
Apologetics is also called Christian Evidences because it involves the study of the evidence that provides the foundation for the case for the Christian faith. The foundation of the case for Christianity is concerned with the available evidence for (1) the existence of God, (2) the divine origin, and thus ultimate credibility, of the Bible, and (3) the deity of Jesus of Nazareth. These are the three primary areas with which Christian Apologetics is concerned.
