An Areopagus Forum with
President of The Assumptions Institute and
Transparent: How To See Through the Powerful Assumptions That Control You
At the root of every person’s reasoning process are basic assumptions that control everything we say, do, and think. Similarly, there are assumptions embedded in every aspect of our culture that influence each of us every day.
Are you aware of these core assumptions, and how to detect and evaluate them? In this presentation, Dave Richardson introduces a Critical Assumptions Test that enables students and adults to discern the hidden assumptions in our culture that influence how we think and live. Based on his book, Transparent, he reveals a simple methodology whereby we can detect the faulty beliefs and values conveyed through our contemporary secular culture.
This methodology is a critical thinking skill that adults can teach their children. It is also a valuable tool to help adults follow God’s will and purpose in every area of their life. Understanding the power of assumptions allows us to discern lies and live more thoughtfully, more faithfully, and more consistently as ambassadors for Christ in the midst of our increasingly secularized society and culture.

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.”

The inspiring story, the music, and the legacy of one of the most unique and creative revivals in American history
A Special Areopagus Presentation by
Dr. Jefrey Breshears
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.

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.

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

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.
