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.

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.

The Book of Revelation has always been the most  controversial book in the Bible. In fact, throughout history Christian scholars have held varying opinions on how the book should be interpreted. But most Christians are unaware that over the centuries there have been four major views of Revelation:

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

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

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?
