When it comes to helping Christian teens defend the faith in today’s culture one of the best things parents can do is to help them shape their Christian worldview by teaching them apologetics.
Apologetics is simply being able to defend what one believes to be true. In today’s postmodern culture, Christian teens are being challenged to have credible answers for their faith.
Are Apologetics Necessary?
Could apologetics help a Christian teen in his faith along a stronger path toward intimacy with his Savior? Of course it can. And it does. I see it all the time.
