Apologetics Involves Much
Apologetics involves not only defending the Christian faith but also critiquing other faiths or worldviews. Part of the task of evangelism is to free people from the power of false worldviews by diagnosing the points where they fail to stack up against reality. Just as Isaiah had to argue against the wooden idols of Old Testament times, showing how silly it was to bow down to the work of one’s own hands (Isa. 44:6ff), so today we have to deconstruct the conceptual idols that hold so many people captive.
