Donating To Apologetics

People often donate to charities or other causes during the holiday season. Last year, I wrote a post explaining why we should donate more to apologetics, and I gave some examples of apologetic ministries you could support. That post created some controversy. You can read part of the discussion that followed here.

Humans aren't just physical beings, and their non-physical dimension includes a mind. Governments, charities, and individuals are giving many trillions of dollars and a large percentage of their attention to helping people physically. Little of the intellectual help that's provided involves apologetics. Your employer, television ads, web ads, and other sources will encourage you to donate money to help the poor, to find a cure for an illness, or to further some other such cause. Notice what they don't address. Christians ought to think carefully about the way they handle donations.
