The Christian Apologetics Project has been around for the better part of 10+ years.
During that time I have tried to present the Christian faith in a way that not only answered the critic’s attacks, but provided the believer with something that maybe he/she had not thought of before.
Doing all the writing, researching, and producing was a challenge, given that during much of same time I was also writing a masters theses, doctoral dissertation, and journal articles along the way.
The only regret I have is that very few actually appreciated my efforts. I am the worst of self-promoters.
Recently, I terminated the CAPro Radio broadcast due to lack of financial support and listeners.
For longest time I tried to get the word out, change broadcast times to make it more convenient for people to listen, contact guests on special occasions, but it was all for not.
Now, I am faced with a similar situation with the CAPro site. Do I go on or is it time to lay it to rest as well?
A couple of years ago I was asking myself the same question and even went so far as to yank the site at the end of host contract period.
But, being gullible or sympathetic, I suppose, several talked me back into reinstalling and rebuilding the site.
What has been somewhat ironic is that despite the pleas, there is still no support, even though web activity shows some pretty impressive numbers. Go figure.
Someone is getting something out this venture, even though I am not exactly sure what.
Is it all web bots and spiders or is it actual people who want to know the truth about whatever it is they are looking for? I really do not know.
Rarely do I hear from anyone, so it may be safe to assume most of those hits are nothing more than web noise generated by computers garnering data for the next spam email blitz.
It is tough having to decide whether or not to carry on.
Almost all of my adult life has been spent learning, writing, and talking about what one of my former students said “screamed of radicalism.”
What I would do, should I put it all to rest, God only knows.
Right now, though, there are so many “experts” opining about everything from soup to nuts that there really seems to be very little need for a clear-cut biblical perspective.
Who needs someone with a BA, MA, MDiv, ThM, and PhD, all in theological studies, telling anyone “Thus said the Lord,” when there is very little fear of God, even in the Christian ranks, among those who know so much better?
Perhaps in the coming days, I will have an answer. Of course, I am always open to suggestions. What say ye?
