Kelvin Cochran served with distinction as Fire Chief of the City of Atlanta for more than five years, prior to which he served as US Fire Administrator where he worked with FEMA and the US Department of Homeland Security.
In November of 2014 Fire Chief Cochran was suspended for 30 days by Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed for expressing his views on sexual morality, including homosexuality, in a book he wrote on Christian faith and values. After returning from his suspension, and despite being exonerated by the City of Atlanta’s Investigative Report into the controversy, he was informed by the mayor that he would have to resign or else be terminated.
With the attacks on Christianity becoming increasingly strident and common in our society, Kelvin Cochran’s case serves as an alarming example of the new and unprecedented threats to religious liberty that we face. His life story, and the circumstances surrounding his dismissal, should be a matter of interest and concern to Christians and all other Americans who value religious freedom and our First Amendment rights.

Four Views on Revelation
HOW SHOULD WE INTERPRET THE MOST ENIGMATIC BOOK IN THE BIBLE?
Thursday, Sep 17

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.

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?
