Defending Your Faith Network



"Technology  has brought access, awareness, and speed. But, it's axiomatic that if you're everywhere, you're probably nowhere. You've got to find a place and be present. You've got to find a level of awareness, you've got to become conscious to begin the process at all. And, for the most part, we're so distracted, we are so fragmented, we are so subject to the forces and influence that disintegrated us that we struggle to simply be awake, and alive, and conscious, and present, in any given moment. Fully awake! Fully alive! Fully present!"   


"We're in the process of being dehumanized. The most extraordinary thing a person can acquire is a keen, clear sense of their humanity. And that is exactly what is being challenged and threatened, and increasingly taken away from people. They are being shaped in ways that create a conformity. And conformity is critical to the advance of the kind of consumer culture that has its tentacles all the way around most people's souls."  


And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.  Romans 12:2

"That's why Gen X, Gen Y, Millennials, Mosaics—no generations have ever been more manipulated than the generations that live today, and they know it, and they're savvy, and they're adept at living in the technological environment that they also distrust. Even they feel compelled to use it."    

"People are responding to an array of stimuli that is simply overwhelming today, and to filter that out, and to protect one's self requires a kind of understanding, consciousness, awareness and discipline, and resistance that's very rare."

"Teaching people resistance will result in people acquiring a new level of individuality as human beings. If part of living in the modern world today means that were going to exposed to ideas that we find repugnant, malevolent, dark, wicked, then what do we do to challenge the predominant structures, the predominant institutions, the predominant powers and principalities that control these images?"  


For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ,  2 Corinthians 10:3-5

The Truth Project, by Focus On The Family

The Truth Project is an unbelievably incredible experience. Many of the questions we all have as we try to navigate the foolishness and the irrational cynicism and sarcasm toward the things of our God are answered. Disparagement and derision of Christ deserves an answer. Questions from friends and family deserve an answer. Join us July 23rd at 7:30pm Portland, Oregon as we begin an unforgettable 13 week worldview tour of  The Truth Project.  Registration required.

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 ‘encourage’.
You, Me and the Bible is a great new resource from Mathias Media to help two or three friends to sit down together and comfortably explore and discover the central message of the Bible.

Each of the six sessions contains:
• two short Bible passages to read and talk about together
• questions and ideas to stimulate a discussion of the passages read
• a summary video to draw all of the ideas in the passages together in helpful and entertaining ways
• concluding questions to prompt a discussion of the implications

A basic fact: Biblical Truth corresponds to Reality, not myth. It is fact not fiction. It is truth not error.

For we did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ,

but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty.    2 Peter 1:16

The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge.  There is no speech, nor are there words, whose voice is not heard.Their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world.   Psalm 19:1-4

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.   Romans 1:18-20

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.
