The word “urban” is from the Latin meaning pertaining to the city as in city life and culture. The word Logia pronounced [loh-gee-uh] is the English transliteration of the Greek λόγια, which means sayings or collection of sayings. Logia is used four times in the New Testament (Acts 7:38; Romans 3:2; Hebrews 5:12; 1 Peter 4:11) and sometimes carries the meaning of divine communication.
Logia is from the same root as the word Logos, a word John used to refer to the Word or Christ. Just as early Christians believed that Christ was Divine, they applied the same word to his sayings also. Other forms of Logia include words like eulogia (praise a person) apologia (defense) theologia (reason about God) and homologia (confess).
Over the last decade, an alarming number of professing Christians have left the church due to their exposure to teaching that causes them to question the very reliability of Scripture, the authenticity of Christianity, and even the historicity of Jesus the Messiah. Many of these people have simply not found Christianity sufficient to address their immediate needs and concerns, and as a result have turned to various other religions and cults which vie for the minds of Christians, particularly young Urbanites and Millennials. These other religions and cults present their teachings as the spiritual solution for the vacuum left by the church’s failure to equip believers apologetically with biblical and historical answers to the questions and issues troubling them.
At UrbanLogia Ministries, we seek to equip pastors, teachers, parents, and students, with detailed knowledge about the various theologies, ideologies, and worldviews that oppose the Christian faith. This knowledge is necessary to combat erroneous teaching which is not rooted in biblical truth or historical accuracy, and as a result is misleading, spiritually and socially dangerous, as well as heretical.
UrbanLogia is an Urban Apologetics and Urban Theological Ministry that specializes in dispelling myths and untruths about Christianity, equipping believers to intelligently articulate the basis of their faith, and helping them become conversant with those holding to the various theologies, ideologies and worldviews that oppose the Christian faith.
