Today in the west, many consider the church to be dead or dying. Christianity is seen as outdated, bigoted and responsible for many of society’s problems. This leaves many believers embarrassed about their faith and many outsiders wary of religion. But what if the Christian message is not the enemy of our modern Western values, but the very thing that makes sense of them? Far from being a relic from the past, the distinctive ideas of Christianity, such as freedom, kindness, progress, and equality, are a crucial part of the air that we breathe. Our guest says, “The extraordinary impact of Christianity is seen in the fact that we don’t notice it". Come and learn why.
Is religion subjective? Do moral absolutes exist? Avoiding simplistic arguments, our guest, an apologist and theoretical chemist, engages modern claims against Christianity. Using reasoned intellectualism, he explores compelling evidence for the identity of Jesus, the bodily resurrection, the existence of God, and more. Ground yourself in truth---and entrust your life to the God who is there!
