Season: 5 Episode: 068
What does God mean when He says to love Him with all your mind? Brett is a self-taught apologist. He shares how the church failed to answer his questions during a difficult time in life. This sent him on a quest to study apologetics. Brett gives tips on how to engage culture as a Christian. He provides resources for the average person that helps equip them to know what they believe and why they believe it.
“I had a God-shaped hole in my heart that only He could fill.”
“The church underestimates how bright the younger generation is. Therefore, they get the latest and greatest tech to keep up, but they forget the battle isn’t while they’re in the building, but out in the world.”
“We’re not keeping up with producing information that challenges the thinking of others.”
“Laws require a law-giver, therefore, reason and logic must stem from a source.”

You are a self-taught apologist. Can you explain what that means and what drew you to apologetics?
Many Christians don’t know what they believe and why they believe it. Moreover, they are not equipped to articulate a solid defense of the faith. What is the church as a body failing to do in this area?
You have learned to think critically and identify logical fallacies in opposing views. As a result, you equipped yourself for difficult conversations. What can others do to engage in these types of conversations?
Let’s really simplify this for the listener and break down why reason and logic are foundational to the Christian faith.
America is in a post-Christian era. For instance, every ideology within culture is coming from an unbiblical worldview. Why is it imperative that we understand: 1. Our own worldview, and 2. The opposing worldviews?
Can you encourage the average Christian who feels ill-equipped to throw their voice into the ring of culture? For instance, can they step up to the marketplace of ideas to contend for the faith?
As we conclude, can you provide some resources for those who want to begin their journey in knowing what they believe and why they believe it?
