Season: 9 Episode: 130
Has anyone ever asked you, “Why apologetics? Just preach the gospel”? They have me. I was surprised to encounter so many in the church who were put off by apologetics. Are we trying to replace the gospel with apologetics? Two words: you can’t. But who’s trying? Nikki Stull from Women in Apologetics is on the show this week to discuss how they’re different and why every Christian ought to be an apologist.
“We determine when to use apologetics or when to use evangelism based off of the needs of the people we have conversations with.”

Questions We Asked
Today we’re asking the question: Are apologetics and evangelism the same. Before we start, let’s define what each of these are.
Why does a Christian need both apologetics and evangelism?
Should a Christian ever say, “Apologetics might be for you, but it’s not for me?”
When do we distinguish when to use apologetics in our conversations with others?
Do you think apologetics is needed more now than ever? If so, why?
