Welcome to the A4K! Blog!
Hey, thanks for stopping by and taking a look at the site. This is a Christian apologetics website for kids and parents who are just starting out.
One day I thought, man, I’ve been listening to apologetics for so many years now and I’ve done very little with it. I’m a mailman who has many hours to listen to podcasts, audio books, and I even turn text into mp3s. I’ve logged hundreds of hours of listening and learning. I love the stuff. If you read my bio, you know I have a couple of certificates in apologetics also (more about those in a future post). If I had the dinero, I’d probably try to get my Masters in Apologetics, or theology—I feel there’s a gap in my Christian knowledge which my own learning will never fill. I digress.
I was also listening to this guy on a podcast who kept pestering me to do something, anything. Stop sleeping, start working for the Kingdom. Sleep is for the weak! I won’t give his name, but his organization starts with “Cold” and ends in “anity.” Another guy was saying “bloom where you’re planted, bloom where you’re planted!” The pressure was getting to me. But what could I do? I figured, I could draw a little and I already had one APP under my belt (a silly story I made for my kids) so I decided to make an app! An apologetics app for kids. I went to the APP store to see what others had done and to my surprise, there were none! I nearly fell out of my chair. As of today, my APP is still the only one that pops up if you type “apologetics for kids” in the Apple store search. Needless to say, that got me going. And eventually, after a few billion hours (oh the hours), I finally finished it. This is the first, in what I hope, is a series of simple apologetic apps for kids and their parents.
The APP is an attempt to make kids aware, first, that there is this thing called apologetics and second, that there are really smart people out there that can answer their questions. I think that if a kid knows that there are answers to their questions early on in their life, they’re not nagged by those questions into their teen years and eventually out of the church. I also wanted the APP to scare parents a little with some shocking stats and quotes about the possibility of their child going astray. I’ll do that on the website as well.
My plan is to go slowly. Here it is in bullet points, because I like bullet points.
About the blog, I will try to keep it short. Just quick thoughts or news on the APPs and apologetics tips for parents and even kids. Since the website is for kids as well, I will not be going into topics that I don’t feel is my place to instruct them on, I’ll leave those to the parents. You probably know what I mean. That’s it, thanks for reading.
