Speaking on God’s behalf

Those who have experienced God and his love surely have things to say on his behalf. There are others who’ve enjoyed the benefits of his power and might in their lives. Surely they also have something to say.

Then there are those who speak in defense of God using a systematic method often called Apologetics. They use a blend of tools such as Philosophy, Theology, Logic, and Science. Apologetics is quite a thorough systematic approach that has been used for a long time.

Job’s neighbor Elihu said: “Bear with me a little, and I will show you, for I have something to say on God’s behalf. I will get my knowledge from afar and ascribe righteousness to my maker (Job 36:2-3). Elihu spoke extensively in defense of God.

Finally, I wonder if God needs our help at all. Now I do acknowledge the value of those who defend the faith. But has he asked for help? Just a thought.

  1. The reason for apologetics: “… be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear” (1 Peter 3:15)
    God does not need our help, but He expects our obedience.

  2. Thank you Dave. I so much appreciate your new blog. I look forward to more from your blog that will help me to “give a reason of the hope that is within.”
