Jay Seegert returns to our program today with a brand new website, “The Starting Point Project.”
We discuss how evolution replacing Biblical Creationism in our public schools has destroyed the thought process and self-esteem of children who are now adults. Evolution also degrades us by teaching us we are random and insignificant, not created by a loving, all powerful God. This has lead to disrespect for others and a devaluing of life even to the point where some think abortion is righteous.
How do we open a fruitful dialogue with youth, unbelievers, and even professing Christians who embrace evolution, abortion, and man-made marriage? We ask honest questions to get them to think about God and how they reached their own conclusions.
Here are some discussion points in our interview with Jay Seegert:
“Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight. Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” To the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” Romans 12:15-21
Jay Seegert has been consistent in his belief that when we can ask people good questions that cause them to think rather just react, we can open great conversations that point people to the gospel.
We are coming off a very tough, mean-spirited election and many younger people are beside themselves that Donald Trump was elected President. How can we reach out to younger people and help calm them see the world in a way most were never taught, through a bibilcal Christian worldview leading to the truth of the gospel?
Refusing to see their own hypocrisy, some people are asking Christians, “How could Christians vote for a man that has said the things Trump has said?” How do we calmly respond and open up a door for a conversation that will challenge their worldview and lead them to the truth in God’s Word?
Jesus Christ came the first time not to condemn, but to preach repentance and point people to truth. The second time He comes, He returns as Judge of all. But sometimes when we share the gospel or speak to unbelievers, we come across as judge instead of persuading them to consider the truth.
For well over fifty years, evolution has replaced biblical creation in our schools and is often taught as fact rather than theory. This is false teaching outside the Church and has affected our young people, leading them to feelings of hopelessness and insecurity.
How does the teaching of randomness, moral relativism, and evolution continue affecting the mindset of many people under 35? (A majority of them now favor Marxist/Socialist philosophies)
God’s truth is every person is made in His image and purposefully knit together in their mother’s womb.
Jay has had many conversations with people who directly oppose our beliefs on Biblical Creationism, yet the conversations do not become heated or judgmental. We ask him why this is important and how can we accomplish this?
