Introducing ASG -
THE Apologetics Small Group ASG Strategy
The ASG is unique
What makes the ASG unique?
There are many good apologetics websites available which serve the Christian community. They provide encouragement and resources enabling Christians to better defend the Christian faith. These sites (include 'Reasons To Believe,' 'Reasonable Faith,' 'Apologetics315' and many more) have been a great encouragement to me over the years and continue to be a blessing.
These apologetic websites are generally serve individual Christians, pastors or other leaders and popularize special events such as conferences and debates. Their focus is on providing information and resources. And what a blessing they are to us all!
This site is different. ApologeticsSG.com is new and it has a different objective; it is the only website which provides a comprehensive, ongoing, local-church-based program, designed to motivate, teach and train church members to be apologists and which can be implemented (by cloning it, or adapting it) by any evangelical church.
ApologeticsSG.com is an interesting, motivating and biblically-based small group programme* which utilizes the plethora of great material available on the internet. Each weekly topic is prepared using publications, websites and relevant videos.
The ASG programme presented on these pages deals with the most commonly-asked questions to which Christians should be able to give biblical, articulate and well-thought-out answers.
* I use the term 'small group' because that is how this group started out for me in the pilot programmes which I initiated in my church. That group grew to 25 persons. So, although we use the term 'small group' the operating desire is to have them grow - 'The more the merrier.' No one should be turned away.
Making Your Life Matter
James Emery White wrote a great book - SERIOUS TIMES: Making Our Life Matter In an Urgent Day (IVP, 2004).
"We must develop our minds so that we can engage the prevailing worldviews that assault the citadels of faith - not simply to defend Christianity but to be able to present Christianity as a winsome and compelling alternative.
We must respond to God's call in such a way as to fulfill our place in this world and then fill it full with the aroma and agenda of Christ.
We must align ourselves with the church so that we position ourselves in the heat of the battle and number ourselves among the vanguard of armies." p.73
James Emery White named his book after a statement by John Adams in a letter to Thomas Jefferson: "My friend, you and I have lived in serious times."
Adams and Jefferson decided to live serious lives and they therefore turned the course of history. This is how the Kingdom of God is advanced and the life of a follower of Christ is measured.
We also are living in serious times although one would never know it - living as we do in this dumbed-down, consumer-driven age of entertainment. Thus, the necessity of this website and others like it.
We hope you will peruse the pages on this site and seriously think about starting an ASG -apologetics small group - in your church with the help of this material.
