    Deep Dive 3 — Dealing with Slavery in the Bible

      Have you ever been confronted with a passage from the Old Testament that is difficult to deal with? For example, passages that appear to condone violence or slavery. When discussing issues like morality and history, I find that atheists and Muslims are prepared to offer up certain Old Testament passages to demonstrate that the Bible is a flawed book and Christians are not always equipped to deal with them.

  • Deep Dive 4: The Reason of Reason (9/20/2017 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM)

    Deep Dive 4: The Reason of Reason


      The naturalistic/materialistic worldview questions or denies the existence of God. The self-evident existence of reason, logic, order and intelligibility are strong evidence for Intelligent Design, specifically the God of the Bible and the Christian worldview. Reason is an undeniable human faculty that defines humanness and points to a rational universe, which in turn points to the divine principle of reason, or the Logos spoken of in the gospel of John.  Further, reason only works because of corresponding and complementary things: logic, order, and intelligibility.  All of these overlap as aspects of language, and complement each other in ways akin to speaking and listening.  Mutual communication works because of reciprocity, which is also why intelligibility works.  This is the structure or Order which is best explained by appealing to the divine Mind who exists eternally in reciprocal communion within the Trinity.  It is Order personified.

God and Mythology –1) Does God Exist?  2) Is Christianity a Myth?


Speakers: Pastor Jonathan Swift and Pastor Ben Edwards

1) Does God Exist?  

Pastor Jonathan Swift's talk will start out with an overview of the various most common categories of philosophical arguments for the existence of God made over the centuries. Then he will conclude by making an appeal to the heart of my listeners based on an a priori knowledge of God described in Romans 1:19-20 "For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them..."

2) Is Christianity a Myth? 

Drawing from author John Oswalt's The Bible Among the Myths, Pastor Ben Edwards asserts that while other ancient literatures all see reality in essentially the same terms of one-ness with the earth, the Bible differs radically on all the main points and cannot reasonably considered mythology.  Rather, the Bible asserts a two-ness as a corrective to those who reject the Old Testament’s testimony about a transcendent God who breaks into time and space and reveals himself in and through human activity.
