HEAR HOPE CONFIRMING REALITIES!
Engage them with Scientific Truth about our World, including Dinosaurs and Fossils and where we really came from!
9:30 – Genesis: Truth or Trash.
Genesis…is it just a bunch of stories, or is it an eyewitness account from the Creator Himself? The world today is divided on this issue. Where are we going to find truth, in man’s ideas or what God actually said. The Bible tells us the truth about how we got here, who we are, why we are here, where we are going. It is the foundation to the gospel, to all of our morality, and to our walk with God. However, billions of years and evolution has so eroded the authority of scripture, that even much of the church is telling us we don’t have to believe that first part of the Bible. As a result, people don’t know who they are or why they are here, so they turn to violence, and rage or hopelessness and depression. The world needs truth as never before, but is Genesis Truth or Trash?
10:30 – 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.
5:30 – Dinosaurs, Dragons, and the Great Deception
Why is it increasingly difficult to reach people for Christ today. Why is this world so divided and antagonistic to the gospel? The world is really divided over where we find truth. The world has a story of beginnings that tells us that we are just animals with no purpose, and people are acting like it. Dinosaurs are probably used more than anything else to convince children that evolution is true and the Bible is a myth. The church must be able to counter this with a proper understanding of what the Bible says about dinosaurs.
6:30 – The Struggle is Real: Reaching a Questioning World
How do we reach a world for Christ that is convinced that the Bible is a myth? How do we teach in church so young people don’t grow up thinking they have outgrown fairytales? This struggle is real, and the church must seriously consider what it is doing, or the exodus of younger generations will just continue.
