Ignoring Two Thirds of the Bible

Biblical apologetics–the study of why we believe what we believe–is a crucial part of the Christian life, yet by most accounts highly ignored. And it seems even when Christians gather to study God’s Word the focus is on the New Testament, and we ignore two thirds of the Bible that is rich with important teachings and examples of God’s plan to reconcile man to Himself–and why Jesus coming as God in the flesh to die on the cross was necessary.

If we do not study and understand Old Testament teachings we can easily be deceived by slick atheists or secular humanists who point out what they claim are “contradictions” between the God of the Old Testament and Jesus Christ.

Joining us this morning to help us have the tools necessary to read and correctly interpret the Old Testament is Dr. Randy White. His latest book is an excellent tool to help Christians read and appreciate the richness of the Old Testament: “The Bible Graphically Presented”

We are also joined by Dr. Cal Beisner of The Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation to discuss President Trump’s nominee to head up the EPA. Is there reasonable common ground that bible-believing Christians can find with environmentalists?

Questioning Evangelism

No, we don’t mean we are questioning the necessity and value of sharing the gospel; we mean using questions in our conversations with others to share the good news of Jesus Christ. How many times do we try to witness to lost people only to find our efforts thwarted by people who seem like they have their minds made up and just don’t want to hear what we are saying?

We look to the example of Jesus who often taught using questions. Joining us today is Jay Seegert to discuss the power of asking questions and how to get people to think.
