Apologetics is quite literally defense of the faith. Early Christian writers who defended their beliefs against critics and recommended their faith to outsiders were called Christian apologists. Mormon apologists work to keep questioning members from being swayed by reasoned information that may shake a member's faith. The Mormon church is very selective about the information it shares with its members—anything that is not faith-promoting is deemed "anti-Mormon," which immediately shuts down questioning from members. Apologists are criticized because they argue a preconceived conclusion rather than present all the facts and follow them to logical conclusion. They will twist words and meanings to make them for into the "church is true" church paradigm.
