Eric Mason: The Obstacles to Apologetics in Black, Urban Communities

“​​East Coast cities can be very untrusting when it comes to people that if you’re planting a church in the community, they think you’re after something. You know, what do you really want?…And so, number one, it takes time.”

“Really we want to create a relational common ground to where, as we’re building relationship, it makes the gospel communication just way more natural.”

“Never stop planting your church. Never, ever stop planting your church.”

“Never take your eyes off of what it means to learn your context. If we take our eyes off of our context for a year, we’re in trouble.”

“I think the biggest obstacle [to urban apologetics] is us not treating apologetics like spiritual warfare. It’s spiritual warfare.”
