9:30 – Genesis: the Key to Abundant Living
There are way 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 in Adam, how we lost it all in 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.
10:45 – 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.
1:15 – Science: the Truth Shot
It is commonly accepted in our culture that science has proven the Bible to be a myth. As a result, many Christians are intimidated by the claims of “Science”. This talk will explore the true nature and definition of science, how it has changed over the years, and the devastating consequences of making science the final authority.
2:15 – 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.
