To help thinkers believe and believers think. (Ravi Zacharias, late apologist).
This was Zacharias’ life mission, as he tried to help Christians learn how to defend their faith. Today many people are dangerously fervent about a particular philosophy or lifestyle; they have great zeal for their cause, but too often they don’t have any understanding of the underlying foundation for their beliefs. Before we debate, we must understand the argument.
There is more hope for a fool than for someone who speaks without thinking. . . Wise people think before they act. (Proverbs 29:30; 13:16)
