Areopagus_Forum_Feb_slide_600px

Militant Islam is spreading around the globe – including here in America – and Christians need to be well-informed regarding the origins of the current crisis and what we can do to serve as a source of Light and Truth in the midst of a world that is becoming increasingly violent and chaotic.

Our speaker is a recognized expert on Islam who was a practicing Muslim for the first 30 years of his life. Not long after arriving in the U.S. in 1978, he experienced a conversion from Islam to faith in Jesus Christ, and for the past 20 years he has devoted his life to studying and teaching the history and religion of Islam.

He often lectures and teaches on Islam in churches and other venues around the world, and since 1990 he has helped plant churches for Muslim converts in Atlanta and Chicago. He has also served as a missionary in India, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Mexico, Kenya, Greece, Germany, and other countries.

Join us for this Areopagus Forum as we discus the origins of modern Jihadism and trace the current crises from the Iranian Revolution of 1979 through the emergence of groups such as Hamas, Hezbollah, al-Qaeda, Boko-Haram, and ISIS, as well as the current refugee situation.

The Culture War and the Two Americas
The Undeniable Realities

by Jefrey D. Breshears

In the 1992 presidential campaign, Bill Clinton’s advisors sensed that despite all the issues that might impact the election – whether foreign, domestic, or personal – the overriding concern was the economy. They were so convinced of this that they adopted a kind of campaign mantra, “It’s the economy, stupid,” and maintained a sharp focus and a clear message that eventually proved a winning formula.

October Forum on Theistic Evolution

Theistic evolution (TE, or “evolutionary creationism”) is the official position of the Roman Catholic Church, and it is the dominant view among liberal Protestant Christians.  But most alarmingly, it is having a growing influence in evangelical churches, especially among young evangelicals.

Planned Parenthood’s “Final Solution” To the Problem of “Unwanted” Children

Posted: Saturday, August 29th, 2015

by Jefrey D. Breshears

[NOTE: On Saturday, August 22, 2015, I spoke at a protest rally in Marietta, Georgia, calling for the de-funding of Planned Parenthood – the largest abortion-provider in America and an organization that receives nearly half-a-billion dollars annually in federal funds. The demonstration was sponsored by a coalition of pro-life groups and included a keynote address by Dr. Alveda King, niece of the late Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.]

August “Books & Culture” Event: Psychology as Religion

Posted: Friday, July 31st, 2015

For the August installment of our Books & Culture presentations, George Weaver will lead a discussion on “The State of the Culture,” and Larry Dougherty will review the modern classic by Paul Vitz, “Psychology as Religion: The Cult of Self-Worship.”

A modern classic, Paul Vitz’s “Psychology as Religion” is a thoughtful critique of modern psychology and an indictment of the values of the “me generation.” Focusing on the popular theories that derive from secular humanism, Vitz, a distinguished Christian psychology professor at NYU, offers a careful analysis of the scientific, philosophical, ethical, and religious presuppositions that underlie much of modern psychology.

“This is the first book by a competent psychologist which analyzes the latest trends in the psychology of selfism over against the wider field of basic human values, personal and social.”
