Douglas Groothuis on the Biblical Worldview

"Here is the sum of the matter.  We must earnestly endeavor to know the truth of the biblical worldview and to make it known with integrity to as many people as possible with the best arguments available.  To know God in Christ means that we desire to make Christian truth available to others in the most compelling form possible.  To be created in God’s rational, moral and relational image means that our entire being should be aimed at the glorification of God in Christian witness.  A significant part of that witness is Christian apologetics."

- Douglas Groothuis (Christian Apologetics, p.44)

If this be true (and I believe that it is), then why on earth is the church so anemic when it comes to apologetics? Why on earth would the Bride of Christ all but ignore a "significant part of that witness?"

Rhetoric aside, pastors must understand and get behind the fact that our faith is as much a "knowledge tradition" (quoting J. P. Moreland) as a relational and (dare I say?) financial one.

The question should not be weather we follow the biblical worldview that somehow restrains us to not go past Revelation Chapter 22:21 for men say so, but to continuously search for “God’s worldview” for Jesus said so.
