Defending Your Faith Network

 

The Supreme Court of the United States has ruled today that same-sex marriage is legal in all 50 states. With all due respect to the court, it did not define marriage, and therefore is not entitled to re-define it. Long before our government came into existence, marriage was created by the One who created man and woman—Almighty God—and His decisions are not subject to review or revision by any man made court. God is clear about the definition of marriage in His Holy Word: “Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.”  I pray God will spare America from His judgment, though, by our actions as a nation, we give Him less and less reason to do so.    Franklin Graham

                                          

If you would like to be able to defend your faith in Jesus Christ and have more confidence to talk about the things of God more openly and naturally with others, then you're in the right place.


It begins not merely with some of the latest scientific facts and discoveries, but rather being confident that all the treasures of wisdom, knowledge and truth itself are hid in Christ. Once you are, sharing your faith becomes easier and more natural, and much more comfortable.  Col 2:3 


Macroevolution (changes in kind) has proven false. "According to their kind" (10 times) in Genesis is true and confirmed. Where do you place ultimate authority—God's Word or man's?  Col 2:8


When you see unbelievers as God sees them, how lost and helpless they are, how foolish and empty their silly little arguments really are, your hesitation to share Christ with others will be gone.


A settled confidence that Jesus really is who He claimed to be, God Incarnate; that your Bible really is God's Word as it claims to be; that the Holy Spirit really is the Partner, Helper and Faithful Guide that Jesus claimed He would be are the starting blocks. With a good start, running your race is easier.


In covenantal apologetics there is no clear boundary between apologetics and evangelism. As Scott reiterates throughout his work, apologetics ought to be understood first and foremost as persuasion; persuading men and women of the truth of the Gospel. Covenantal apologetics seeks to take the truth of Scripture as the proper diagnosis of the unbelieving condition and challenges them to make sense of the world they have made, given that it is based on a fundamentally irrational construct. Given any fact or experience it asks the question as to the validity of the presuppositions behind that fact or experience which make it possible.
The Course of Your Life is a framework to help you apply the word of God to people’s lives prayerfully and intensively. The course seeks to revolutionize hearts and minds by focusing on who God is, what he has done in Christ, what his plans are for the world and for us and how that generates a whole new agenda for the course of our lives in making disciples of Jesus.

Practically speaking, The Course of Your Life is an in-depth, topical Bible study designed for small groups of (ideally) 8-10 people, with helpful video input. It covers biblical content in a way that the material applied to the group can be very flexible to best fit the people you are trying to ‘revolutionize’.

Welcome to the front lines of
the long war against God
Everywhere we turn, battle lines are being drawn—traditional marriage vs. gay marriage, pro-life vs. pro-choice, personal freedom vs. governmental protection. Seemingly overnight, culture has shifted to the point where right and wrong are no longer measured by universal truth but by popular opinion. And as difficult conversations about homosexuality, abortion, and religious liberty continue to inject themselves into our workplaces, our churches, our schools, and our homes, Christians everywhere are asking the same question: How are we supposed to respond to all this?

In Counter Culture, New York Times bestselling author David Platt shows Christians how to take a stand on issues as poverty, sex trafficking, marriage, abortion, racism, and religious liberty—and challenges us to become passionate, unwavering voices for Christ. Drawing on compelling personal accounts from around the world, David presents an unapologetic yet winsome call for Christians to faithfully follow Christ into the cultural battlefield in ways that will prove both costly and rewarding.

The lines are drawn. The moment has come for Christians to rise up and deliver a gospel message that’s more radical than the most controversial issues of our day.
