The Mission

Faith and Reason are allies and are not in opposed to one another. In modern times faith has been characterized by skeptics, internet atheists and others to mean believing in something despite having no evidence for it, or having evidence opposed to it. Anselm suggested the phrase fides quaerens intellectum, “faith seeking understanding.” Thus, Christians need not be afraid of asking tough questions; asking tough questions will lead to a deeper, stronger,  and more meaningful faith.

The mission of Unapologetic is to equip Christians with the tools to defend their faith with reason and precision. So they can articulate their beliefs in the public square, in a cogent manner that is both gracious and uncompromising, hence the name “Unapologetic.” A natural consequence of equipping Christians is  those opposed to the faith will be disarmed and hopefully subsequently led to faith in Christ.

Theological Commitments

  1. I believe that there is one and only God who is tri-personal,  the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  2. I believe that Jesus Christ was fully God and fully man, and only through his name can anyone be saved.
  3. I believe Jesus died for my sins, that his perfect sacrifice on the cross made atonement for all of my sins.
  4. I believe that Jesus rose from the grave and as such all Christians will one day be physically resurrected.
  5. I believe that the Scriptures were inspired by God and declare his design and plan for mankind.
  6. I believe it is a duty of every Christian to spread the gospel of Christ.
  7. I believe that as disciples, Christians are to continually grow in their relationship with Christ; and this entails loving God with all of ones heart, soul, and mind.

About Me

10398403_541424654002_3513116_nMy name is Shannon Eugene Byrd, but if you’re reading this you probably already know that. I grew up in Liberty, South Carolina. At the age of nineteen I entered into the Air Force; I’ve served for over fourteen years now. I graduated from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University with a Bachelors in Technical Management in 2012. I graduated from SAGU in 2015 with a Masters in Theology. One day I hope to earn a PhD in either theology or apologetics, or possibly both. It has always been a great desire of mine to help my brothers and sisters in Christ answer tough questions regarding their faith. I enjoy teaching various classes and subjects at my local church that most churches do not offer. In short I live for equipping the saints to defend their faith with reason and precision. One day I hope to teach theology or apologetics at the university level, but for now, I am more than content learning and teaching what I learn. God has been great to my family and I.
