Let first state that I am a new Christian and even though I have read tons of apologetics book, I am absolutely terrible with apologetics. It is discouraging as I do not think fast on my feet and am not good philosophically for giving a reason for my hope. That being said, many of you here are excellent with this sort of thing. I have a coworker who is always approaching me with questions such as Why Is Homosexuality Wrong If They Perhaps Might Be Born That Way? And you know what? My mind goes blank. I could probably address him in emails where I can think and consult others but I don't know the best link for such apologetical answers such as the homosexual question whereas it is child's play for people here on this board. So my question (after long meandering) is two-fold. In general, how does one get better at apologetics when they don't have that gift? In particular, if anyone can answer the homosexuality question either in their own words or helpful links, I would be happy. I come here with hat in hand somewhat ashamed because I simply am not good at it and would like to be. I feel like I embarass my Christian brothers. Let it be said that I have a strong eduction and Master Degree but still somehow get struck dumb with conversations such as the above. Last week, it was "You Know J, the Bible is full of myths and inconsistencies"....and so forth. You know the type of guys I'm talking about. So what to do? I hope this apologetics link is the best place to post this. Usually the discussion are of a higher caliber than what I am asking but I could use some help. -----Added 2/22/2009 at 03:17:22 EST----- I have been reading apologetics for years, so pray for some clear thinking on my part. My brain is in a fog.
