About Den of Thieves
Hopefully, this web site will earn the respect of Christians in need of a one-stop shop for their apologetic needs. Obviously, I have drawn most of my information from other sources, but being an apologist who frequently debates, this web site is really a compilation of what I consider the most relevant.
Q: What is the purpose of this web site?
A: Den of Thieves Apologetics Guild hopes to 1.) equip believers to effectively witness in this skeptical culture 2.) lay waste the lies of humanism.
Q: Why is this web site titled Den of Thieves?
A: For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. (1 Thessalonians 5:2) The Lord will one day return to conquer the nations of the Antichrist, those who have fallen to Satan's deception. In the mean time, DoT hopes to congregate the most formidable minds in apologetics, prepared to steal away all arguments of the enemy. (Yes, I hope to gain members one day!) But be not deceived---I actually got the name from the game "Heroes of Might and Magic III." :)
Q: Is this just another apologetics web site?
A: No, I want this web site to be unique and distinguishable from other Christian web sites. Also, I am confident that my writing ability and background provides a different taste from other Christian web sites. Most importantly, however, I operate under the KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid) principle:
Firstly, my goal as a writer is to keep the articles and rebuttals short yet poignant. People want and need a quick reference to their Bible questions, and that is what I intend to provide. Most apologetics web sites tend to delve into every last nook of their opponent's logic as they refute a skeptic or develop a thesis. My methodology is this: 1. Refute argument. 2. Shut up. The more one writes, the more one provides opportunities for skeptics to nitpick at the writing. Further debate is generally more sloppy, as a result.
Secondly, the layout. The black background and red lettering distinguish it from other Christian sites often smitten with emoticons, ugly clipart, annoying midi files, and a generally bland layout. My two inspirations, aesthetics-speaking, are www.attrition.org and www.drudgereport.com. If you think the red lettering is too hard to read, let me know.
Q: Are you qualified to debate all these issues?
A: In a credentials sense, no, but that does not mean I am not capable of weighing out issues and then writing them in an easy to understand fashion. If you think I have truly faltered somewhere, please email me.
Q: What version of the Bible do you use?
A: I use the New King James Version, which keeps the formal equivalence and elegance of the respected KJV, but is easier to read. (Yet I will still admit wholeheartedly that the KJV is the superior translation.)
Q: Is it true that your revered english teacher once called you a Renaissance Man?
