    Ratio Christi Potchefstroom was started in 2009 by a group of guys appropriately enough living together in Veritas Men's Residence. In the same year they introduced the campus to apologetics by organizing a team of apologists from Southern Evangelical Seminary to lecture all over campus, most notably Dr. Richard Howe. In 2010 they had RZIM speaker John Njoroge training students and in 2010 and 2011 Dr. Michael Licona was their guest, lecturing at various venues across campus and debating Muslim Apologist Yusuf Ismail. Dr. Licona's popularity became evident when the theological faculty offered him the position of external research collaborator, which he accepted. They host regular events with local apologists and have monthly meetings. They currently operate under the leadership of Danie Malan and Mathabo Baase and any contact details and event information can be attained through their Facebook group Ratio Christi - PUK

    In spring of 2009, a group of Ohio University students decided to form a community to respond to intellectual attacks on the Christian faith. The resulting group, which they called Christian Engineers and Scientists, discussed apologetics-related topics at weekly meetings with the goal of encouraging and equipping each other. The leaders of CES joined forces with Ratio Christi in fall of 2010, hoping to gain resources and assistance in carrying out their vision of teaching OU students how to defend their faith. Past studies have covered the material presented in The Case for Faith (Strobel), The Truth Project, On Guard (Craig), the Screwtape Letters (Lewis), Cold-Case Christianity (Wallace), and others. This semester, the group is studying True U, a DVD series taught by Dr. Stephen Meyer which covers a variety of apologetics topics.

    In addition to continuing the tradition of weekly meetings focused on apologetics training, Ratio Christi at Ohio University hosts several guest lecturers to start on-campus intellectual discourse on important issues. Past speakers have included Dr. Chris Hook of the Mayo Clinic, Scott Klusendorf of Life Training Institute, Dr. David Berlinski of the Discovery Institute, and Frank Turek of CrossExamined, among others.

    Our chapter of Ratio Christi is made up of members of Stockton University. Our purpose is to spread the message of the Gospel on the campus and we do so through use of evidence. So many people believe that faith is simply believing in what you do not have evidence for, and we are there to challenge that view. We believe that there is evidence for our faith and we seek to prove it using facts, logic, philosophy, science and more. We interpret the Lord's commandment to worship the Lord God with all our "mind" literally and we seek to do that by "always being ready to give a defense for the hope that is in us, doing this with gentleness and respect." (1 Peter 3:15b) It is our hope that God will use our time on this campus to bring about revival in the hearts of college students, that there will be a turning of hearts back to Him. In this dark world Christ shines through us so that all may see and believe that we have a faith that is true, believable and reasonable. No more blind faith, but faith as reason to trust what we know is true.

    Have you wondered how you can know that Christianity is true?  Can you answer challenges to what you believe?  Would you like to grow in your ability to have calm, constructive discussions with people who hold beliefs that are different from yours?

    Our chapter exists to build students’ confidence that Christianity is grounded in reality.  Students participating in Ratio Christi deepen their 1) knowledge of how to move in conversation and open up space for dialogue about important human issues, 2)  empathy for people who hold other beliefs, or who aren’t sure what they believe, and 3) understanding of philosophy, history, and science as they relate to Christian truth claims.  This confidence gives students both the presence of mind to engage in dialogue and skill to regain their balance when they feel knocked off-balance by a difficult conversation.

    Join us on Friday mornings beginning January 11, 2019, 9:00-10:30 a.m., in the library of the Little Chapel of All Nations, 1401 E First Street, on campus at the northeast corner of First Street and Highland Avenue. We plan to meet every week until April 26, 2019.

    Our weekly meetings will focus on a series of presentations with Q&A and discussion.

    We welcome anyone who is interested in dialoguing about faith and truth, Christian or agnostic, believer or unbeliever.
