Hello! This is Sheryl Young, Media Outreach Coordinator and Newsletter Editor for Ratio Christi Campus Apologetics Alliance (https://ratiochristi.org/about-us). Ratio Christi (Latin for ‘The Reason of Christ’) is a global movement that equips university and high school students and faculty to give historical, philosophical, and scientific reasons for following Jesus Christ. Ratio Christi plants student and faculty led apologetics clubs at universities, and we currently have 170 chapters around the world. We have over 30 high school groups and we want more — to be associated with churches and parents who want to be mentors to “Gen Z.” Students, engaged in the battle for the mind, learn to defend God’s existence, the reliability of the Bible, and the fact of Christ’s resurrection. We seek a Renaissance of Christian Thinking in the University. And they learn to do it respectfully for all people. Faith & Reason aren’t separate. Our intellect can blend with our heartfelt faith. Luke 10:27 and Matthew 22:37 say “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, srength and mind.” 1 Peter 3:15-16 says “In your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander.”
For Christian groups, para-church organizations, student outreaches, and churches who reach young people for the purpose of attempting to stop “youth exodus” from church through giving students valid and tangible evidence and reasons for the Christian faith. Our Intellect and reasoning can join our heartfelt faith. They are not separate. “Love the Lord with all your heart, soul, strength and mind.” Luke 10:27, Matthew 22:37.
