From apologetics to categorics

We affirm that Christians have a way of looking at the world that is distinctive. Based on the relational nature of God, they should be promoting this for public life as well as private life.

However, Christians have got into a defensive mind-set where the focus is on apologetics – defending Christianity from attack.

Therefore, as Capitalist and Socialist ideologies have shown themselves to be unsustainable, we propose that Christians move on to what might be termed ‘categorics’, (based on the Greek word for prosecution in a court case), actively promoting their alternative solution for the economy and public policy.
