  • Legacy Seminar 3—Discussing the Gospel Purposefully with Muslims (7/15/2017 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM)
    7/15/2017 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

    Legacy Seminar 3—Discussing the Gospel Purposefully with Muslims

    Presented by Scott Cherry and Wissam Yousif    *Free admission.  Pre-registration required.

    Location: Ward Church, West wing, Chapel Suite 1, 40000 Six Mile Rd., Northville, Michigan.  


    Jesus wants Christians to love and reach out to Muslims without compromising the gospel. He wants us to do so intentionally as he did with people of other ethnicities and belief systems, people such as Romans and Samaritans. Jesus was very good at that and we can learn a lot from him. Scott and Wissam will teach you biblical principles for engaging Muslims as Jesus himself would.

    Today in America Muslims are among us, and they are as diverse from each other as are Christians from each other (whether true or only cultural). 
    Some are recent immigrants while some are American citizens. 
    Some are well-educated, others not. 
    Some are very religious, others hardly at all. 

    But they are people who want many of the things we want from life, and they live and work in our communities. But/YET many Christians do not talk to Muslims even if they have opportunity. They feel that they don't know how. Thus, few Christians have tried and even fewer feel that their conversations have been fruitful especially in discussing Islam as compared to the true meaning of Christianity, the gospel. 

    Should Christians simply avoid the topic? We do not think so, because Jesus did not avoid it. But many Christians experience frustration because they don't understand Muslims beliefs. 
  • Deep Dive 3—Analysis of Slavery in the Bible (7/26/2017 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM)

    Deep Dive 3—Analysis of 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.

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.
