Apologetics from the Heart 2

The following statements are from Eli Ayala’s Apologetics Devotional Day 2. You can read the entire post here. It is good to read a reflection on foundational texts for doing our apologetics.

Text: 2 Corinthians 10:5

“We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised up against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ,”

When we think of “arguments” and “lofty opinions” we typically think of these as coming from the unbeliever as it is the unbeliever who would be the one raising objections to our Christian faith. However, we can make personal application here. Sometimes, throughout the course of our thought life, we too can hold to “lofty opinions” that are raised up against the knowledge of God. We too can hold to beliefs that are inconsistent with God’s Word. While perfection in our beliefs and theology is not possible this side of heaven, it is still important that we think long and hard about how we think, reason, speculate, argue, and live day to day. 
The life of the mind for the believer is one of sanctification. Sanctification is that life-long process whereby God, through the working of the Spirit, molds us and conforms us into the image of Christ. The goal here is that by the end of our lives, we look more like Christ than we did when we started. 

To God be the glory!
