Hear Hope Confirming Realities!
Engage them with Scientific Truth about our World, including Dinosaurs and Fossils and where we really came from!
7:00 – Eyewitness History
Many people just assume that “science” has proven we can’t believe what the Bible says. What they don’t know is that the atheist’s belief of how everything got here purely by natural means, without God, is being called science. Christians who believe the Bible are accused of being science deniers. If man’s view of history is true, the Genesis account of creation, Noah’s Ark, the Tower of Babel…it’s all myth. But we have a trustworthy eyewitness who gave us a written account of our real history. God told us how He created, what the earth was like when He created, how he cursed the earth because of sin and judged it in a global flood. There really was an ice age and a massive migration at the Tower of Babel. It is exciting for Christians to see that what we observe today confirms what God said and goes against the natural explanation of how we got here.
7:50 – Dinosaurs, Dragons, and the Great Deception
All ages will enjoy this talk as we answer the questions:
- “Does the Bible really talk about dinosaurs?”
- “Did dinosaurs really live millions of years ago or did God create them on day 6 with the rest of the animals?”
- “Wouldn’t Adam have been afraid of the dinosaurs?”
- “How could Noah get dinosaurs on the ark?”
- “What really happened to the dinosaurs?”
7:00 – Genesis: Truth or Trash?
Our nation is more divided today than we have ever been since the Civil War. The dividing issue is “Where do we find truth – in ourselves or God’s Word?”. Billions of years and evolution has so eroded the authority of scripture in our culture that even much of the church tells us we don’t have to believe that first part of the Bible. As a result, the younger generation is throwing the whole thing out; we are just beginning to reap the consequences in our nation. This presentation explains what compromise on God’s Word has done to America and why the book of Genesis is vital to the gospel message.
7:50 – Genesis: the Key to Abundant Living
There are too many Christians struggling with sin, just holding on till Jesus comes and finally gives us eternal life. Jesus said He came not only to give us life, but abundant life. The book of Genesis is the key to understand this often-missed aspect of our salvation. When we see the events as described in Genesis as literal and historical, we are able to see how, we had everything with Adam, how we lost it all to Satan, and how we gain it all back in Christ. This is not your typical apologetics lecture, yet this will be a great faith building and empowering message.
7:00 – The Truth Shot: Science Confirms the Bible
This presentation is designed to clearly explain the difference between observational science and historical science. Many believe that evolution is scientific and based on facts, and that a biblical view of origins is just a religious idea based on faith. This talk will show that what we observe confirms the Bible’s account of origins, exposing the different false beliefs about origins as unscientific.
7:50 – Age Matters!
- Is the age of the earth just an interpretation issue or is it a presupposition issue?
- Can we trust the Bible literally or do we have to look to modern science to help us figure out what the Bible says?
- Do we have to accept atheistic scientific interpretations as truth and judge the Bible accordingly?
We at Reasons for Hope* start out with the belief that there should be no other authority outside of scripture that determines what the Bible means. All truth claims must be measured by what the Bible actually says. This is not just a blind faith position that goes against all the “facts” of science; there are good scientific evidences that confirm a young earth just as the Bible says.
7:00 – How the Bible Changed the World
Have you ever wondered why Europe and North America have so much freedom and prosperity while so many other areas of the world have struggled for centuries? Some say it is because certain people are less evolved. The truth is that the Bible has changed the world. We begin by contrasting the true perspective of reality given to us in the Bible with other worldviews around the world that have kept people in poverty. We conclude with the worldview clash in America between the Bible and Secular Humanism, and how humanists have been successful in teaching their lies to the younger generations. This false worldview will lead to devastating consequences right here in America. This talk is designed to give a greater appreciation of the importance of the Bible and explain why America is so divided today.
7:50 – Dueling Worldviews
How can so many sincere people have such diametrically opposing views about how to make this world a better place. By contrasting the basic starting beliefs of a Biblical Worldview with the starting beliefs of Secular Humanism, we’ll begin to see how these contrasting views will flesh out in the political, moral and social issues of our day.
7:00 – The Struggle is Real: Reaching a Questioning World
Why is it increasingly difficult to reach the younger generation? Why is the church in America experiencing at least a 70% casualty rate among our youth? Where are the millennials? What’s going to happen with their kids? This talk explains how the belief in billions of years and evolution has undermined the authority of scripture in our culture and as a result people are not listening to the gospel as much as they once did. This talk explains how to teach and witness more effectively in the culture.
