Apologetics may be simply defined as the defense of the Christian faith. The word "apologetics" derives from the Greek word apologia, which was originally used as a speech of defense.

  • What's the Difference between 'Having Eternal Life' and 'Not Knowing You're Going to Be Dead Forever'?

    Sometimes I think, 'What if "The Knowledge" (of the tree of the knowledge of good & evil) was just "THAT you are not immortal"?' And what if "believing that Christ paid for that stolen-fruit" takes 'that knowledge' away---reassuring us that--though we might still 'pass away'--we'll NEVER "perish!"

    Hi,
    To think that you or your loved are are never going to die is a lovely thought.
    Maybe that's why dogs are generally so happy, they don't know.
    Hmmm so you're saying that Christ paying for that sin helps us disregard the knowledge that was gained from the tree?
    It's a hard thing to think over as wouldn't us learning that swing the situation back round the other way? We then again accept the knowledge we got from the Tree.

      Maybe it's more like 'Christ's action helps us realize that 'the fall' was ACTUALLY more like 'a step back in order to have more momentum in the leap.'

        So to do something bad in order to be better at doing good? Don't Born Again Christians think a bit like this. Or have I got the wrong end of the stick with what you're saying? :)

          I think Adam's fall was preordained. Man was created to show the universe [all created spirit beings] what life would be like if God wasn't their King. There are some who believe earth is some sort of "proving ground" for those who'll take the place of angels who rebelled against God. As for their being a difference between having eternal life and not going to be dead forever we have to believe the word of God. If He says you'll die, you'll die and if He says you'll live you'll live. God never lies.
