Loving God with the Mind: The Role of Apologetics in Thinking, Evangelism, and Faith in Culture

Event date: 9/19/2015 1:00 PM - 4:30 PM Export event


Emcee: Carl Head, Student President at UM Dearborn
Topic 1 (1-2:30pm): "Does it All Fit" The Questions that Every Wordview Must Answer

Speaker: Shane Rife, Oak Pointe Community Church

Everyone has a worldview, and it's vital to have a well-defined one.  A worldview is the "lens" through which you understand everything around you, how you interpret and make sense of all reality, even in your Christian faith. A person can have a strong worldview or or weak one if they're not intentional. There are five biblical criteria for every worldview: 1) Origin, 2) Purpose, 3) Value, 4) Morality, 5) Destiny. In this talk Shane will help you evaluate your own worldview and those of others so you can effectively make biblical decisions and shape intelligent conversations.

Topic 2 (3-4:30pm): "Yes, No, Maybe", Reason as Evidence for a Rational God
Speaker: Dr. Bert Spalding, Wayne State University

We live in a rational world, but faith and reason are NOT opposites. Everyone uses the same rules of reason and the same laws of logic, even in faith.  But where did they come from? Normally, good reasoning is valued and expected by everyone, everywhere, or all would be utter chaos, as Dr. Spalding will endeavor to show.  Whether our reasoning is sound or faulty it’s always in accordance with a standard set of universal laws and principles which are God-given and reflections of God.  This is strong evidence for the rational God of the Bible whom we can celebrate with confidence.
