This class meets periodically as a short-term study to discuss questions about the Christian faith. In this apologetics-based course, we'll explore the thoughtful rationale for belief in Christianity.
This four-week session is perfect for those with questions and/or for those who want to understand how to have discussions about faith with nonbelievers, the study will focus on exploring the following questions:
Evidence for God 1 -- What is a worldview? Why does it matter? Rational arguments for God's existence
- Evidence for God 2 -- Does science conflict with faith?
- Evidence from science for God's existence Who was/is Jesus of Nazareth? -- Jesus was either Lord, liar, lunatic, guru or myth? Where does the evidence point?
- Evidence for the resurrection -- Why is the resurrection so important? Five explanations for the resurrection: hallucination, myth, conspiracy, faked, truth and here does the evidence point?
What is Apologetics?
Christian apologists give reasons for the hope that is within us (1 Peter 3:15) to help people come to faith in Christ. We challenge false ideas that form obstacles to belief in Christ, and that give rise to disorder in human persons and in society. Within the Church, we help Christians have a stronger faith and live out Christ’s call to love God with our heart, mind, soul and strength.
