You are a pastors wife and see church from a different POV. What would you say are realistic and unrealistic expectations Christians have of church and pastors?
There aren’t a lot of churches that integrate apologetics instruction into their education. Some pastors even pushback on apologetics. Why are you such a believer that every Christian should have an apologetics foundation?
For those who want to start an apologetics study with a group or in their women’s ministry and their pastor disagrees, should they do it in their own homes? What do you suggest?
How can those who want to teach apologetics begin to do that?
in your opinion, how can apologetics strengthen the church as a whole?
Tell us about your Bible study and how it helps equip Christians in their studies.
