This argument is closely related to the ontological argument. It starts from the idea of God. However, unlike the ontological argument, it does not say that real being is part of the content of that idea. Nope, it tries to demonstrate that only God Himself could have make this idea to develop in our thoughts. […]
Welcome to Apologeet.nl
‘Apologeet’ is Dutch for ‘Apologist. The meaning of this word can be found here.
Many contemporary Christians do not really know how to respond to critical questions. Defending the faith has not been necessary for a long time… In the old times, everybody was considered to be a Christian and everybody believed in the Creator! Today, the opposite is true. People do believe in all sorts of things, but not in the Creator. How do we approach the world around us? What are our answers? These and more questions will be tackled on this site.
Apologeet.nl started with a Dutch biology book review but slowly more content is added. Most of it is still in the Dutch language. Nevertheless, due to several requests I will try to translate existing content and add English content.
Please keep in mind that Apologeet.nl is not meant to be a debate forum. There are many other websites/blogs that offer this possibility. This website is to help Christians in their faith. To strengthen and equip those who want to.
Apologeet can be found on Odysee as well. This new platform is completely Open Source and does not censure its content like the bigger platforms, such as YouTube. Please, accept my invitation to Odysee through this link and receive some free LBC’s (cryptomoney): Invitation to Odysee
The material world we know is a world of change. My oldest son is about 1.76 metre. But he was not always that height. When he was born, he was about 51 centimetres. Yes, he changed a lot during the last 15 years. General Sherman is the biggest tree in the world. According to estimates, […]
A Biblical Case for the Church’s Duty to Remain Open Christ is Lord of all. He is the one true head of the church (Ephesians 1:22; 5:23; Colossians 1:18). He is also King of kings—sovereign over every earthly authority (1 Timothy 6:15; Revelation 17:14; 19:16). The Church should stand immovably on those biblical principles. As […]
We have discussed several arguments for God. Now we’ve come to the fifth argument and I think this one will tricker most resistance. The Religious Experience argument for the existence of God! A religious experience is when someone feels they have had a direct or personal experience of God. This argument basically says that if […]
A new video! On apologetics again. I promised in my last video to show you a bit of our road here in the countryside of Madagascar. So, stay tuned, because I will paste some of that footage at the end of this video. Anyway, let’s get started. I grew up in a time that knew […]
Not a topic about apologetics this week. Something else got my attention. Last week I was reading the news items concerning my home country, the Netherlands. One article triggered my attention. It was an interview with a doctor about all the measures the government took and is still taking to prevent people from getting Corona. […]
As missionary among the un-reached Antanala-people of Madagascar, I have heard this question a million times… Well, maybe not a million but many times. Mostly these questions are hidden in presuppositions. Among Christians some think that nobody will be saved, except those who’ve heard and believed the Gospel. While others, say that there are people […]
What do you think? Are we like orphans or are we citizens of our universe? Are we just an accident, a fluke, a product of mere chance? If we have to belief the secular world we are just a result of time, space, matter, chance and impersonal laws. No, the universe is just what it […]

Ethics: The Stance on Abortion
With the advancing technology of modern times, one comes across difficult ethical questions. On the one hand medics are capable of saving the premature, while somewhere else unborn of the same age are aborted. How do we approach human life in such?
