In the cultural climate of the 21st century unbelievers need to hear the gospel message as much as ever before. However, unlike the world of the mid 20th century, atheists, agnostics, and proponents of false forms of the faith are becoming more evangelistic for their causes. Students, workers and even ministers are being challenged to accept that modern science, philosophy and mere human desire dictate that they should live a life devoid of Christian sacrifice. For this reason, Trinity Crusades for Christ exists. We are happy to assist God’s people by scheduling evangelistic events, Christian defense conferences and personal evangelism training weeks. It is our desire to see the lost embrace the life that Christ died that they might have, and see Christians grow in their knowledge of how to preach and defend that message. If you would like to schedule an event in your community, contact us now. We are excited to work with you.
What is the nature of the ongoing debate between "Biblical Counseling," and "Christian Counseling?" How do doctrinal positions impact one's views in the debate? What Christian Apologetics have to do with all of this? We'll discuss some interesting connections, and similarities between the debate over apologetic methodologies, and approaches to counseling among believers. We'll also discuss how soteriological views direct the discussions.
This one would be great for anyone teaching through Revelation! With Braxton just back from Turkey, he and JP discuss the historical backgrounds of each church mentioned in the book of Revelation. This is a good one to check out as a YouTube video since there are quite a few images and videos that may be helpful.
In this third ever episode in "The Finders" series, we answer questions regarding practical ways to explain tough theological and philosophical concepts, and tackle a couple of questions regarding soteriology.
Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Indiana Jones, Star Trek, and a mountain of other franchises are on the lips of Christian apologists even during their defense of the faith. Why? In this episode, we discuss how myth impacts society, and the pros and cons of modern western storytelling.
In this episode we discuss the nature of time, and what is means to speak of God as "timeless." We also cover "A" versus "B" theories of time, and respond to Chris Fischer over at God is Open (link below), who critiques a recent discussion I (Braxton) had with Matt Chisholm of the spectacular podcast, Bible Brodown!
Trinity Students, Brandon Morris and Nick Ham have taken over Trinity Radio!!! They share their testimonies, and discuss the subject of Christian zeal! How radical should your faith be? In the midst of the discussion they tackle subjects like Mormonism, Evangelism, Apologetics, personal devotional efforts, and . . . veggie tales!
Christian apologists often say that while they can respond to the intellectual problem of evil, the emotional problem of evil is a separate question. Are we left with no response to the parent who has just lost a child? What about those who are dealing with depression? Is depression a real thing? Unfortunately, apologists have often begged off answering these tough questions, but we won't! This week we're joined by Dr. Jim Chatham, chairman of the Christ Centered Counseling Department at Trinity College of the Bible and Theological Seminary.
How can small groups in the local church aid in evangelism and apologetics? Small groups are commonplace in churches of various denominations today, but intentionally developing a small group around apologetics and evangelism comes with its own challenges. When considering that many Christian apologists in the local church feel that their discipline is largely ignored or unappreciated, this sort of apologetic work can allow such a ministry to flourish. Also, we discuss a new book for which we both contributed chapters - "Small Churches, Big Stories," edited by Samuel Schmidt
Do evangelistic events in the local church work? We discuss the terminology, methodology, and relevance of evangelistic events, and respond to typical criticisms. All this leads toward the final question, "How can apologetics be included?"
Is inerrancy the central mark of evangelicalism? What is a workable definition of inerrancy? Why has this issue become so controversial in the theological world over the past several years? These and other questions arise as we strive toward the topic: how does inerrancy impact Christian apologetics?
