A Defense of the Christian Faith

Anselm of Canterbury - Theolocast (1)

Anselm of Canterbury once said, “Credo ut intellegam”.

Or in English: “I believe so that I may understand.”

The idea is clear, but not intuitive. Belief in God precedes a correct understanding of reality, not the other way around. Anselm merely echoed an ancient and inspired theologian, King Solomon when he said, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.” (Proverbs 9:10)

This is our aim too: “to believe in order to understand.”

How Theolocast Is Different

There are many ministries that populate pages on the internet. Some are good, some are so-so, and some will lead you to hell. This is our little corner of the interwebs that may offer a different perspective from what you’re used to in Christian ministry – particularly in Christian apologetics.

  • Biblical
    Our aim is to explore the Biblical perspective on the world’s ideas. There is a trend in Christian apologetics to neglect the Scriptures. Either by way of deferring to philosophy or science, or otherwise denying certain clear claims in the Bible. There is a place for good philosophy and good science, but not at the expense of good theology.
  • Apologetics
    We examine reasons to believe the God of the Bible. As helpful as certain arguments for the existence of God (if the arguments are even convincing), they do not necessarily point back to the God of the Bible. That’s why we want to focus on defending the Christian faith, not some impotent type of deism.
  • Curious
    No subject is out of bounds – within Christian reason. We want to explore everywhere Christ can be named.
  • Simple
    We strive to make complex theology easy to understand. There is a place for complexity and there is a place for simplicity. Everything should be communicated as simply as possible – but not too simply.
  • Evangelistic
    We aim to make God known in every field of knowledge so people will repent and believe the Gospel of Jesus the Messiah.

 What is the “World System”?

The World System is an interlocking set of structures influenced by evil spirits and is ultimately headed by Satan; its chief purposes are deceiving human beings and separating people from God.

“The whole world lies in the power of the evil one.” 1 John 5:19

The World System is diametrically opposed to its spiritual counterpart, the Kingdom of God. (The purpose of the Kingdom of God is reconciling people with God and expanding God’s reach in the world.) This Satanic, earthly insurrection or World System affects every area of life and learning including…
