  • Women in Apologetics?

    When I first started with Ratio Christi, I noticed that the all chapter directors were male. All the people I talked to about turning Ratio Christi into an independent organization were male. Most of the ministries I knew about were run by men. I wondered where the women were.   More

  • From High School to College to Apologist

    As our young people graduate high school, enter college, navigate through the academy, and eventually end up in the real world, they will face many challenges to what they believe. I have seen too many young people who considered themselves Christians, then lost their faith when they got into the world. Most of them cite that a college professor was able to show that the Bible is not reliable regarding reality or to convince them that Christ is not the only way to God or to reason them away...   More

  • The Age of the Apologist

    Creating confident witnesses—A new strategy for church growth

    The modern church is under intellectual attack. The university is the breeding ground of skepticism, secularism, atheism, and neo-Darwinism. In the past, this was a relatively non-toxic situation. Intellectuals at the university used to simply dismiss Christianity as anti-intellectual, but all that has changed. Today they are on the attack and they are aggressively recruiting students to their cause. Neo...   More

  • A Message to All Apologists: Your Success is Our Priority

    Creating a Movement—Not an Organization

    by Rick Schenker, President of Ratio Christi

    I didn’t join Ratio Christi to build an organization; I did it to help create a movement.  From the moment I saw Ratio Christi’s web site, I realized that God was up to something big—I believed that He was about to start a mass movement that would make “apologetics” a household word.   More

  • The Cultural War that Wages Violence against Men's Souls.

    Can you imagine anything more violent than condemning someone to hell?  Yet, according to scripture, no one is forced into hell, they go there based on their choice to accept or reject the free gift of eternal life that God has made available by the death of Jesus Christ. But if someone seeks to persuade others to reject this free gift by purporting lies, half-truths and deceptions, are they not then committing the most violent act possible against men by giving them reasons to reject...   More

  • God or "We Got Lucky"

    Used by Permission from Clay Jones (rev. 7/31/2011)

    So how did the universe, and all the complexity we find in living things, arise? There are only two explanations: God or luck. Now, if the Darwinists are correct, this luck is operated on by natural selection but don’t let that fool you: natural selection is still working upon lucky mutations. For the naturalist luck is still at the bo...   More
