Defending Truth and Christianity at the University
Students & Faculty. Fully Equipped. Fully Engaged.
Ratio Christi (Latin for ‘The Reason of Christ’) is a global movement that equips university students and faculty to give historical, philosophical, and scientific reasons for following Jesus Christ. Bringing together faith and reason to establish the intellectual voice of Christ in the University, Ratio Christi is planting student and faculty led apologetics clubs at universities around the world.

However, I am still able to end my opening with, “what does this have to do with 6 verses taken out of context and I am glad you ask!”
