APOLOGETICS AND EVANGELISM

*

Every Christian is bound to answer for the hope that is in him. Chris­tians should have a reason ready for their Christianity, that it may appear they are not actuated either by folly or fancy. This de­fense may be necessary more than once or twice, so that Christians should be always prepared to make it, either to the magistrate, if he demand it, or to any inquisitive serious Christian, who desires to know it for his in­formation or improvement. – Matthew Henry

It ought to be noticed, that [First] Peter [3:15] here does not com­mand us to be prepared to solve any question that may be mooted; for it is not the duty of all to speak on every sub­ject … Peter had in view no other thing, than that Christians should make it evident to unbelievers that they truly worshipped God, and had a holy and good religion.   And in this there is no difficulty, for it would be strange if we could bring nothing to defend our faith when any one made inquiries respecting it. For we ought always to take care that all may know that we fear God, and that we piously and reverently regard His legitimate worship. – John Calvin
