7 Steps to Become a Really Bad Apologist

Most people who are interested in Christian apologetics desire to be good apologists. For those of you who would prefer to be a bad apologist, here is my advice. Feel free to NOT follow it.

  1. Spend more time attacking other Christians than removing obstacles to non-Christians.
  2. Remind people who do apologetics a different way that they are heretics.
  3. Be more interested in winning the argument than winning the person.
  4. Remember that love is only for bleeding heart liberals.
  5. Tell yourself daily that there is only one valid interpretation and it is yours.
  6. Stop learning. You already know everything you need to know.
  7. See working on your relationship with God as a distraction from real apologetics.

Bonus advice: Whatever Jesus did, just do the opposite.
