About Mars Hill

Our purpose in posting these discussions is not to demonstrate how clever Christians are, or to demean those we have interacted with.  It is to demonstrate some apologetic methods we and others have tried over the years - some of which have proven helpful, while others have frankly failed.  We hope you may benefit from these examples, learning both from our successes and our failures.


The truth of the Gospel lies not in our efforts to defend it, but in the proper understanding of God's Word.  It is our desire that in proclaiming the truth of the Gospel, we have honored Christ by rightly dividing the Word, and by respectful and gentle answers to those who ask about or challenge our faith.


Discussions are presented unedited (except for spelling and mild grammatical corrections).  Additional comments will be restricted to a brief introduction at the beginning and/or a summary at the end.
