  An Apologist’s Approach Definitions: Apologetics: Apologetics is the field of study concerned with the systematic defense of a position. Someone who engages in apologetics is called an apologist or an "apologete". Polemics: Polemics [puh-lem-iks, poh-] is the practice of disputing or controverting matters. Biblicist: A person that believes the Bible is and not just contains the word of God. The Passage: 2 Timothy 3:16-17: All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. Ps:11:3: If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do? Jesus struggled with this type of false teaching from the Jewish Sects. Current Disbelief: A culture of Disbelief would be the best way to describe the western sentiment towards scripture.

I. Apologetics
  I. Apologetics: An Outward Defense: (Prov:14:12: There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. Prov:16:25: There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. A. Atheistic Attacks 1. No God? No! Gods unto themselves. 2. Notice the Bible Outwardly rejects them. (Ps:14:1: The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. Ps:53:1: The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good. ) B. Attacks from other belief systems 1. Their Questions of the Historicity of the Bible 2. Their Questions of the Reliability of the Bible 3. Their text would not stand the scrutiny they place the Bible under. (In this class there will be ample proof that the Bible passes all, their test with flying colors.)

II. Polemics
  Polemics for this discussion is the defense against heresy. That is to say, inside doctrinal attacks by the devil against the Church.

III. The forms of so called
  I. Form criticism Form criticism is a method of biblical criticism adopted as a means of analyzing the typical features of texts, especially their conventional forms or structures, in order to relate them to their sociological contexts. II. Narrative criticism Narrative criticism is a relatively recent approach in literary interpretation. As a technical term, it is particularly used in biblical exegesis. Based on the recognition that many biblical texts are stories, including the four canonical gospels and major parts of the First Testament, narrative criticism uses models and questions derived from modern literary theory to interpret them. Using the insights of literary theory and criticism since New Criticismin particular, it is focused on the text and its world, and eschews external historical reference points. III. Linguistic Criticism Linguistic Criticism is probably the oldest form of biblical criticism or textual criticism to develop.[1] It relies heavily upon the study and knowledge of the Biblical languages - not just Κοινη Greek and Hebrew, but also Aramaic (the language Jesus Himself most likely spoke) and Egyptian (Moses' mother tongue). IV. Radical Criticism Radical Criticism is a movement around the late 1800s that, typically, tried to show that none of the Pauline epistles are authentic, and that Jesus and the apostles were ahistorical constructions. V. Redaction criticism A recent critical method for the study of the Bible, especially the Gospels and other books whose contents have overlap, is redaction criticism. Redaction criticism is a historical discipline which is concerned to discover the intended purpose of the final author or editor of a book. Unlike its parent discipline, Form Criticism, redaction criticism does not look at the various parts of a narrative to discover the original form. Instead, it focuses on how the author or editor has shaped and molded the material in his sources to express his literary goals for the work, i.e., the reasons he is writing his work. Redaction criticism sees the author or editor not as a mere "cut-and-paste" collector of stories, but as a theologian who is trying to meet his theological agenda by shaping the sources he uses. VIII. Rhetorical criticism Rhetorical criticism is an approach to criticism which is at least as old as Aristotle. Rhetorical criticism studies the use of words and phrases (in the case of visual rhetoric, also visuals) to explicate how arguments have been built to drive home a certain point the author or speaker intended to make. VI. Source criticism Source Criticism is an aspect of historical criticism, a method of literary study used especially in the field of biblical criticism that seeks to understand a literary piece better by attempting to establish the sources used by the author and/or redactor who put the literary piece together. Sometimes biblical scholars use the term literary criticism as a synonym for source criticism. In biblical studies, source criticism is tied to the historical-critical approach which is heavily historical in orientation. Source criticism has its origins in the attempt by historians to reconstruct biblical history. In general, the closer a source is to the event which it purports to describe, the more one can trust it to give an accurate description of what really happened. In the Bible where a variety of earlier sources have been quoted, the historian seeks to identify and date those sources used by biblical writers as the first step in evaluating their historical reliability. http://en.wikipedia.org/

IV. Paul's View on the Errors
  IV. The problems Paul had to endure 1. The rise of various doctrinal errors. 2. His views on the errors. (1Tm:1:4: Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do. 1Tm:6: 3-5 If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself. 1 Timothy 6: 20-21: O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen. 2Tm:2:23: But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes. Ti:3:9: But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.) B. This course will test the arguments against. 2 Tim 2:15: Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
