Christian Apologetics for Islam

by | Jun 5, 2017

1 Peter 3:15 instructs and commands all Christians: but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect.

2 Corinthians 10:3-6 instructs and commands all Christians: For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ, being ready to punish every disobedience, when your obedience is complete.

Christian apologetics can take two basic approaches: offensive and defensive. 1 Peter 3:15 provides a defensive approach while 2 Corinthians 10:3-6 offers an offensive one. Apologetics is situational in nature. By situational, I mean that whether you take an offensive or defensive approach depends on the situation in the moment. For that reason, Christians ought to be prepared to react to the situation in which God has placed them. In other words, you should be ready to defend Christian beliefs as well as scrutinize your opponents claims at any given moment. This article lays the foundation for how a Christian can be a better witness for the gospel specifically in their encounters with Muslims. While the content of your presentation of the gospel will not change from one contextual situation to another, your focus and emphasis may vary.

I define biblical apologetics as follows: the biblical mandate for every Christian to advance and defend the gospel of Jesus Christ as they live the Christian life, in the power of the Holy Spirit, by exposing and subjecting all contrary beliefs to Christ’s revelation as found in Scripture. [McManis, Clifford B. Biblical Apologetics]
