The Christian Apologetics and Research Ministry (CARM) is a Christian ministry founded by apologist Matt Slick, who is also its president.[1] Slick holds a Masters of Divinity degree from the Westminster Theological Seminary,[2] a conservative seminary in the Calvinist tradition.[3] CARM is written from a Biblical inerrantist, conservative Protestant point of view and has a trove of arguments against other religions or viewpoints, including atheism, Catholicism, and Islam, as well as sects like the Jehovah's Witnesses. Along with Got Questions, CARM is one of the most in-depth conservative evangelical online resources and ranks high in search engine rankings.

The good[edit]

CARM does a good job of refuting the viewpoints of sects like Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons. It also warns Christians against cults. Slick emphasizes reasoned argumentation, and encouraged his now-atheist daughter to develop critical reasoning skills.[4] It is more honest than many other apologetics websites; for instance, CARM quotes Charles Darwin's often quote-mined quote about the eye in whole.[5]

Fundamentalism[edit]

CARM, as a literalist and fundamentalist website, rejects the scientifically-supported theory of evolution and opposes liberal viewpoints on issues like homosexuality.
