Creation, Evangelism, and Humbly Answering Skeptics

“Everything is built on our starting point… that God exists, and the Bible is His inspired Word.” Jay Seegert

Today we catch up with Jay Seegert of the Creation Education Center in Wisconsin, and we discuss the importance of humility in our interactions with people, particularly when sharing the gospel or talking about creation. Being prepared to respond to questions is important, but just as important is asking questions and listening to the other person so we know how to directly address their concerns. We’ve probably all done this: when the other person is speaking, we’re not really listening – we’re just waiting for our turn and often don’t hear what was just said.

The bottom line is the authority of Jesus Christ and Scripture. It doesn’t matter as much what we think; what does God’s Word say?

The Narrow Path and Gate

The way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. – Jesus in Matthew 7

The life of a believer should be markedly different from people of the world. We are called to higher standard of morality, and we are called to be above reproach with not even a hint of immorality that could lead others to stumble into sin. Not an easy assignment, but one we are called to by our savior.

Dave Wager joins us this morning to discuss the narrow path, the narrow gate, and the narrow life of a true believer.

Reasons for Hope, Answers About Our Faith

1 Peter 3:15 tells us to always be prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for hope. These days, in a world spinning into disarray, people need all the hope they can get.

Real hope starts and ends by knowing who God is and His plan for this fallen world. But these days public institutions are peddling a false narrative about God and creation. Unless we can point them to the truth, people will remain lost and without help.

Carl Kerby of Reasons for Hope Ministries joins us this morning to discuss Creationism and how to point people to the truth of God in His Word.

How Worldview Influences Our Reality

It always intrigues me when two people can look at the same set of facts and come away with different conclusions. These differing conclusions are of course influenced by our perception of the world and what we have been taught–correctly or erroneously.

As Christians, we see archaeological and scientific discoveries happening regularly that confirm the truth of the Bible. Yet those who stubbornly reject God refuse to see the truth because of ignorance, pride, or a hard heart. The Bible is more than just a religious book–it is an historical book that gives us a look at the creation of the world, along with its future.

Joining us this morning to discuss how credible science is confirming the truth of the Scriptures is Jay Seegert of The Creation Education Center.

A Glimpse at the Future of “American” Christianity

We are often reminded there is a huge difference between Biblical Christianity and American Christianity. The church today hardly resembles Acts 2 and the early church to whom Paul wrote letters of instruction. This morning we give you a glimpse of where American Christianity may be headed as it continues to model itself after Humanist thought and allow itself to fall under the influence of secular government. We look at the government of Sweden–one of those socialist utopias progressives often point to–that has effectively neutralized true Christianity.

First, we are joined by Jan Markell of Olive Tree Views and Understanding the Times Radio to discuss the disturbing trends we see in America and the church.

Also, have you heard about this recent story in which a federal government agency is threatening to fire a Christian employee of 14 years for declining to watch an LGBT “diversity and inclusivity” training video?

Whose Perspective Do We See Others Through?

Men see from a human perspective; God sees from an eternal perspective. We see things through a clouded veil with an incomplete picture; God sees all things clearly and perfectly.

Christians have the mind of Christ, better able to see things as God sees them through His Word. This morning, Dave Wager discusses how God sees others and our circumstances compared to our incomplete perception as humans.

Entitlement vs Responsibility

A growing number of people want the good things of life without the hard work and responsibilities. People are being duped by the idea of free stuff including college tuition, healthcare, jobs, retirement benefits, all without any of the responsibility.

Christians must be discerning and not fall for the entitlement traps all around us. Today’s guest is Dave Wager from Silver Birch Ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute.
