Let Us Bring an Apologetics Ministry to Your Church for Free
(Written December, 2007)
We are in the beginning stages of something very exciting! Apologetics is not just for the lost but also for the saved. God’s people need to know, not just what we believe, but why we believe it! This new facet will involve sending our articles on apologetics (from our file bins in the street ministry locations) to churches for free for distribution by a designated leader at the church.
Would you like to have an apologetics ministry in your church? Let us send you articles for free on apologetics for Christians in your church to copy and distribute at an apologetics table to Christians who want to research and contend earnestly for the faith—we have topics on the New Age “Secret”, the Dalai Lama, Buddhism, Hinduism, how to witness to Mormons (Mormonism vs. Christianity), and more.
Several Christians from all over America and abroad have written asking, “How can I get a copy of the articles on apologetics alphabetized in your file bins in street ministry?” Well, we are now working to get these articles to Christians in our new facet of ministry, “LTW in Church.”
With the weather too cold to set up the street ministry in NYC I am focusing this winter on “LTW in Church.” We envision getting our articles, which we keep in our file bins at our booth locations, to churches who are interested in having a table of apologetics in their church. (We are transferring them all onto CD in PDF format). One article could be featured per week at a table where the church members could stop by and take copies for free. We have everything from Mormonism, Buddhism, the Dalai Lama, Scientology, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Islam, and world religions vs. Christianity to the contemplative prayer movement, emergent church practices, and the perils of evangelical feminism and calling God “mother.”
This new facet of “LTW in Church” will just involve our articles—we want to offer them to key people at churches to make copies and make available to God’s people! If you are a pastor or a church member anywhere in the world who would like to lead such a ministry, please email me. We will let you know when the first batch of articles has been transferred to a CD for mailing purposes. From the CD the leader of this ministry at any church (it could be a secretary or any Christian with a love for apologetics) will work with the ministry pastor or evangelism ministry to print off one article per week or month to give out for free to church members. The only cost to the churches will be the cost for paper in printing off the articles.
Just picture this: at the end of the church service, as people are leaving, they can stop by a table where at least one article will be featured per week on apologetics. They can know about the little apologetics table, stop by, looking forward to which article will be featured per week to grow in the Lord on various topics, encouraged to “contend earnestly for the faith” as we are commanded to do in Jude 3 via an apologetics outreach to Christians. For instance, a table could be set up in halls or parlors for Christians (similar to the tables we set up in street ministries to the lost) or articles could be studied in small groups or Sunday School classes. Apologetics is not just for the lost but also for Christians, so this idea thrills me just as much, if not more, than our tables in marketplace street locations.
We also want to emphasize that we desire to show respect for pastors and do not in any way want this to imply that pastors are not doing a good job. We love pastors and sound sermons. God knows that there is rarely a day that goes by that I don’t listen to a sound sermon. We hunger for great sermons and grow from them. We do not offer this with the intent of “preaching” by any means—just to make articles on apologetics available to church members. The pastors simply cannot do everything. Hopefully, a key person in a church will be assigned to the project of printing off an article per week or so and making copies of the article for church members to take for free. Every week could feature a different article.
For example, with The Secret DVD and popular book, many Christians might want to know what it is all about or how its message goes against the Bible. Well, pastors simply cannot have the time to study such error and write articles about it, so we have done that work and will provide articles. The same would go for The Da Vinci Code and The Lost Tomb of Jesus hoax or “Harry Potter and the Gay Wizard”, etc.
I am very, very busy working on getting all of our articles on CD to do this expediently for God’s glory. One Sunday School class in TN is going through our articles, taking one article per week, and growing in apologetics. I hope to have a testimonial soon from them. We look forward to many testimonials from Christians in churches, rejoicing that God has brought apologetics—contending for the faith against lies about Jesus in our postmodern culture—to ministries in the church. I am also thankful for my friends at Shepherd’s Community Church in CO who are helping transfer the hard copies of articles to PDF format on CD, much more conducive for mailing.
For these articles, we will be working with Walter Martin Ministries, Witnesses for Jesus, Christian Research Net contributors, Berit Kjos (Crossroad), Kurt Van Gorden, Daniel Mann, Gregory Reid, Richard Bennett, Mike Gendron, Discernment Ministries, Apostasy Alert (Cult Link), Al Dager (Media Spotlight), Institute for Creation Research, Answers in Genesis, Seek God and other sound ministries of apologetics to “light the way” out of dark lies about Jesus and counterfeit gospels with the LIGHT OF GOD’S GLORIOUS WORD defeating pop Gnostic error with a warning to God’s people in church. Just writing about it makes me realize that this has got to be close to God’s heart. He does not want His people led astray. “But sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts always ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence.” (1 Peter 3:15).
Please allow us the privilege of bringing this ministry of apologetics to your church, with answers based on the Bible in the Spirit of the Lord, to work together with pastors and Christians all over the world in church for Him!
