I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist
In the I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist seminar, we answer four major questions to establish why Christianity is the most reasonable worldview.
- Does Truth Exist?
Christianity cannot be true, nor can any other worldview (including atheism), if truth is relative or just true for you but not for me. The seminar will show you why truth is absolute and knowable, and how you can logically refute anyone who claims it isn’t.
- Does God Exist?
There can be no Word of God unless God exists. You’ll see three powerful arguments for the existence of God — two scientific and one philosophical. Those arguments will be established without any reference to the Bible.
- Are Miracles Possible?
If miracles don’t happen as most university professors believe, then Christianity is nonsense. The seminar will show you that not only are miracles possible, but the greatest miracle of all has already occurred and we have scientific evidence for it.
- Is The New Testament True?
Unless truth exists, God exists, and miracles are possible, the New Testament doesn’t have a prayer. But after establishing those points, you’ll see the Top Five Reasons to believe the New Testament is historically accurate — Jesus really did die and rise from the dead for the sins of the world. From the accuracy of the New Testament, the accuracy of the Old Testament can be established as well.
For a college audience, the seminar can be divided into two, two-hour parts. In part 1, we cover Does Truth Exist?,Does God Exist? and then answer student questions. In part 2, we review the first two questions and then cover Are Miracles Possible?, Is The New Testament True? We also answer student questions. For a church audience, the entire seminar can be done in one day.
If God, Why Evil?
Perhaps the greatest objection to Christianity is the existence and persistence of evil. If a good God exists, then why doesn’t he stop evil?
In this two-hour seminar, Frank will show you why evil actually is an argument for God, and provide answers to these and other intriguing questions:
- Does evil disprove God?
- Did God create evil?
- What’s the source of evil?
- What’s the purpose of evil?
- What’s the destiny of evil? ‘
- What should you do about evil?
Why We Can’t NOT Legislate Morality
How many times have you heard “You can’t legislate morality!” or “Christians ought not be involved in politics?”
Frank explodes those myths in this two-hour seminar, which provides answers to those and additional objections such as: What about prohibition? The separation of church and state! You can’t make people be good! Don’t impose your morality on me!
Find out the reasons why it is essential for the Christian to influence our culture and laws (in fact, the Gospel depends on it!).You’ll also learn how to be an effective ambassador for Christ in the public square.
