November 2014 Forum

Midtown Auditorium
Many dedicated and conscientious Christians invest thousands of hours over the course of their lives reading, studying, and discussing the Bible, but relatively few have anything approaching an informed and thoughtful philosophy of the Bible. In this presentation, Jefrey Breshears explores issues of vital interest and concern to Christians and non-Christians alike regarding the Bible, including…
  • What is the Bible? If asked to define the Bible without using the familiar cliche, “The Bible is the Word of God,” what would you say?
  • Does the Bible present a coherent, consistent and comprehensive worldview and philosophy of life?
  • Is there a qualitative difference between the kind of inspiration that we encounter in the Bible and that which motivates gifted writers, speakers, preachers, composers, and artists to produce their works?
  • Why is it reasonable to believe that the Bible was divinely-inspired?
  • What are the origins of the Bible, and how were the early manuscripts composed?
  • Why were certain books included and excluded from the Bible?
  • Why should we believe that the Bible has been accurately preserved and transmitted through the centuries?

Latest “Areopagus Update”: Who Needs Philosophy?

Posted: Tuesday, August 12th, 2014

Who Needs Philosophy?

Our fall seminar in 2014 is a new Areopagus course, “Socrates Meets Jesus: How Philosophy Leads to Christianity.” My hope for those involved, as with all our apologetics classes, is that they will find this course to be stimulating, inspiring, relevant and practical. But realistically, I know that many Christians have a built-in resistance toward philosophy, which is why I always try to use the ‘p’ word with discretion.

Ever since the dawn of philosophy in ancient Greece in the 6th B.C. it has been used by many to serve a humanistic agenda in which “Man is the measure of all things.” In addition, from the outset philosophy has been an intellectual and a moral morass due to the noetic effects of sin on the human soul. In short, many people either cannot or will not think straight because they are morally incapacitated as a result of intentional and habitual sin to the point that they lose the ability to discern right and wrong – or else they know full well the difference but resist what is Good and True because it impinges upon their egoistic impulses and ambitions.
