Forum April 25: Dr. Paul Copan on “Divine Justice”

Posted: Friday, April 10th, 2015
Areopagus Forum April 25: Divine Justice

The Israelite conquest of Canaan is one of the most controversial accounts in the Bible and one of the most problematic issues in Christian apologetics. Skeptics often cite this “genocide” of the native Canaanites to argue that the God of the Bible is just as wrathful, vindictive and cruel as the gods of any other religion, including Islam.

November 2014 Forum

PERIMETER CHURCH
November 20, 7:30pm
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?

January Forum with Dr. Mary Poplin

Posted: Friday, December 27th, 2013

What If Christianity Is True?

What Are the Implications?

 

What would we have to believe, and how would we need to arrange our lives and our priorities…

  • If atheistic materialism were true?
  • If secular humanism were true?
  • If pantheism or New Age spirituality were true? or…
  • If Christianity were true? 

Join us as we welcome Dr. Mary Poplin for the global launch of her new book, Is Reality Secular?

 

PERIMETER CHURCH

JANUARY 16th • 7:30 PM

Fellowship Hall

 

 

Mary Poplin has lived a fascinating life and has a compelling testimony regarding the life-transforming power of Jesus Christ. From her life as a radical liberal feminist to her experience working with Mother Teresa in Calcutta, Mary understands that our worldview and what we believe about ultimate reality determines our values, our priorities, and how we live our lives.

Dr. Poplin is currently a Professor of Education at Claremont Graduate University, and the Director of the Institute for Education in Transformation.
