I grew up with the books of Roald Dahl. I wasn’t such a great reader myself, but the teachers were doing a great job during the read aloud. I loved the story of the Twits and the Big Friendly Giant. These stories were colourful and exiting! But not very politically correct. What did I know […]
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
Odysee is not the only platform on which you can find Apologeet. Scroll down to see them!
Sola Fide – Faith Alone
You might have heard of the five ‘solas’ of protestantism. It is basically a summary of what the protestants believe to be true after the reformation. Sola is latin for ‘only’ or ‘alone.’ I will explain a bit more about these ‘solas’ in a minute. But I mostly want to think with you about ‘sola […]
Last month I received a question through my website about universalism, and whether I could say a thing or two about it. Universalism (Greek: apokastastasis) states that sooner or later all people will be saved for eternity. This position holds that the concepts of hell and punishment are inconsistent with a loving God. Early Church […]
We hear a lot about the ‘woke’ movement. Everywhere you come you’ll meet people who refer to themselves as being ‘woke.’ In the supermarkets, on our universities, in the big companies, and even within some churches. What is this idea of being ‘woke’ anyway, and why do some Christians embrace this idea? Definition of the […]
Do I have the Holy Spirit?
Have you ever wondered whether the Holy Spirit lives in you or not? I know I have! When I became a Christian the whole concept of the Holy Spirit was baffling to me. Well willing Christians tried to explain it to me, and they came with all sorts of terms: Baptism in the Spirit; receiving […]
Can a Christian Lose his Salvation?
I guess this is the follow-up of the last video in which we tackled the doctrine of ‘once saved, always saved.’ Can a Christian lose salvation? Good question! What is a Christian? First, I think it will be smart to determine what a Christian is. A ‘Christian’ is not someone who sits in church every […]
Critical About the Idea of ‘Once Saved, Always Saved’
Today, I would like to take a look at this doctrine of ‘once saved, always saved.’ Actually, I don’t think it is an official church doctrine today. The doctrine has been around for a long time already. This time, I think I am not going to give you just one answer. To be honest, I […]
Unity or Diversity… or Both? Last week we’ve had the annual conference with all the Missionaries from our organisation on Madagascar. My wife and I helped organising the week and that is nice because we get to plan when we have breaks and what kind of programme we have. We don’t really like the kind […]

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?
