Respond Apologetics Course
Do you ever have questions you can't answer about our faith? Anyone ever stump you with evolution? Ever been tongue-tied when someone says they don't believe in God? Are you sure of what you believe?
Evidence America has created the Respond Apologetics Course to give you answers to common questions about Christianity. Containing 11 lessons, each 15-20 minutes long, and helpful study guides, the Respond Apologetics Course will solidify your faith and give you confidence as you stand for truth in our secular world. For a sample of the Respond course check out lesson 1 below.
These exciting and professionally produced apologetics lessons cover the following:
- Apologetics and Starting Assumptions
What is apologetics and where can I find it in the Bible? What are the important uses of apologetics? Finally, how do I deal with bias and starting assumptions?
- Is there absolute truth?
Truth will be defined in this lesson, and three reasons the lie, "There is no absolute truth," cannot be true. Furthermore, the reason the world wants us to give up on this central tenant of our faith will be revealed.
- Does God exist?
How can I know God is real? A powerful argument for God's existence is given, as well as a fascinating tie-in to two of God's names, Jehovah and Jesus.
- How can God allow suffering?
How could a loving God allow children's hospitals and murder? Starting at the beginning of time (in the book of Genesis), we'll outline what happened to bring death and suffering about. And, we'll show you how God has done more about death and suffering than anyone else.
- Confident copy or crooked conspiracy?
Has the Bible changed through time? Has a complete, certain copy of it ever existed? Look into the facts anew in this eye-opening lesson. Here we'll discuss how an ancient document makes it to the modern world, the incredible preservation of the documents of the Bible, and the principles the early church used to select the books of the New Testament.
- The Bible versus Evolution: Can they really mix?
Did you know there are two types of science? Well, you'll find out what they are in this lesson. Also, the basic teachings of evolution and the book of Genesis will be compared, and the weaknesses of common alternate explanations of Genesis will be shown.
- A House with No Plans: The truth about mutations and natural selection
Two pillars of evolution will be torn down in this lesson: mutations and natural selection. Their definitions will be given, and we'll see that they don't add information to the genome but actually take it away. Evolution is impossible.
- A Really Bad Date: The truth about radiometric dating
The world is millions of years old, or at least that's what radiometric dating would have us believe. But is this process as fool proof as many claim? And is there any evidence that the world is not as old as evolutionists say? You'll hear answers to these questions and more in this lesson.
- Terrible Lizards: God's History of the Dinosaurs
Everybody is curious about the dinosaurs, but should they be? In this lesson, we'll see how the Bible explains them for us, and we'll see a clear example of a dinosaur on the pages of Scripture.
- Hypocrisy: Christians giving Christ a bad name
Many people won't believe because they've seen a bad witness. How can we overcome this objection when an unbeliever throws it at us? Did you know Jesus and Paul dealt with the same thing in their time?
- Jesus: Was He really God?
The capstone of our course, this lesson dives into the question of our time--who is the real Jesus? In a step-by-step, powerful process, we'll see that the disciples believed Jesus was God, Jesus believed He was God, and Jesus proved Himself to be just that--God in human form.
