Apologetics - Defending The Faith
Sound Witness believes that evangelism must begin with clear communication of the objective substance of Christian faith and practice. Sound Witness seeks to speak to the minds of people, communicating objective biblical truths so that they might have the assurance of God's forgiveness and favor, and thus be better equipped to discern, not only the errors of sects/cults, but also the shifting winds of contemporary popular "Evangelicalism". Few consider the broader implications of many aberrant teachings popular in "Evangelicalism" today; those who do are not popular. Many Christians, when hearing such voices, hide behind a curtain of polite ignorance. Sound Witness aims to open this curtain and call Christians to walk in the Light.
Answers in Genesis is an 'apologetics' (defending the Christian faith) ministry. Because Genesis is the most-attacked book of the Bible, AiG, as a specialist ministry, defends the historicity of the Book of Beginnings most of all. It is AiG's goal to equip Christians to give a credible defense of Genesis, and to show that the Bible is the correct foundation for thinking about - and interpreting - every aspect of reality.
