March Forum: “Moses and the Exodus: History or Myth?”

An Areopagus Forum with

Jennifer Breedon

Legal Advisor and Media Analyst,

Has new evidence surfaced that
confirms the Biblical narrative?


For generations skeptics have challenged the historicity of Moses and the Exodus, contending that there is no archaeological evidence that supports the Biblical narrative and that the story is mostly (or totally) mythical. However, evidence now suggests that there may in fact be physical remains of the Exodus – but not in the area of the Middle East that has traditionally been attributed to Mt. Sinai. (more…)

Alliance Defending Freedom

Religious liberty is the bedrock principle upon which our country was founded, but that principle is increasingly under attack by a coalition of secular forces that want to ban Christian beliefs from our public square and limit freedom of religion to mere “freedom of worship.”

A Special Areopagus Presentation by

Dr. Jefrey Breshears

Eric Smith

Dr. Richard G. Howe

A presentation based on Dr. Breshears’ study guide, “The Jesus Movement Revisited”

“The Jesus movement of the late 1960s and early ‘70s was a response not only to the social, political and cultural upheavals of the time, but the relative staleness and sterility of mainstream institutional Christianity as well. In some respects it was the youth-oriented manifestation of a much larger spiritual phenomenon that was sweeping over the religious landscape, the charismatic renewal movement, but the Jesus movement was more energized and creative – and considerably more interesting….”

How Political Correctness Is Destroying Academia and Higher Education

by Dr. Melvyn Fein, Sociology Professor at Kennesaw State University and
Author of “Post-Liberalism: The Death of a Dream” and “Redefining Higher Education”

Melvyn Fein is not a professing Christian, but throughout his prolific career as a sociology professor and author he has been a fierce critic of Political Correctness and liberal intolerance, and a courageous opponent of the radical left-wing domination of academia. Higher education has changed dramatically over the past 25 years, and Dr. Fein has much to say that Christian students, parents (and grandparents) need to hear about the current state of our colleges and universities.

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.
