Science and the Bible–can the two coexist? Modern society considers science and faith to be dichotomous (opposed to one another or entirely different). When speaking of science, people talk about “thinking, evidence and rational justification of facts.” On the other hand, people consider faith to be all about “evading evidence and clinging to non-rationality.” Is it possible that the secularists are wrong and that a Christian worldview isn’t less rational but actually more rational?
Lecture 4 – Confirmation of God’s Choice (Genesis 38:1-30)
We should not be surprised when there are people who scoff, or ridicule, those who believe in God. We should seek to answer their questions without being judgmental against them for their unbelief. There are many reasons for people’s doubts, but we must not forget that Scripture tells us to “have mercy on those who doubt” (Jude 22). Christianity is not a psychological crutch for those who doubt, but a supernatural cure for the condition of people everywhere.
Lecture 3 – Joseph, the Favored Son (Genesis 37:2-36)
Apologetics seeks to pave the way for that gospel presentation by first answering any questions or objections a person my have about Christianity. To apologize means to make a defense for something. So as we think about “Apologizing Christianity,” we are NOT apologizing FOR Christianity, but explaining the reasons behind our beliefs in Jesus Christ and the Bible.
