About The Oklahoma Apologetics Alliance

A clearinghouse for events, discussion and ideas that either promote or defend the orthodox Christian Worldview.

The term "apologetics" comes from the Greek word apologia, which means "to give a defense." In 1 Peter 3:15, Christians are urged to engage in this task: "but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense (apologia) to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect." People often have challenging questions about Christianity that deserve a thoughtful, respectful and gentle response including:

  • How can an all-loving, all-powerful God allow so much suffering?
  • What about all of the contradictions in the Bible?
  • Does science disprove Christianity?
  • Did Jesus really rise from the dead?
  • Why did Jesus have to die on a cross?
  • Is Jesus the only way to God?
