Whatever! (Deut. 12:32) (Keynote - General Session)
"Whatever is the meaning of life?" "Whatever happens when one dies?" "Whatever is your highest value?"--questions that demand more than a "Whatever!" answer. The "Whatever!" answer of Secular thinking dampens and even squelches serious thought and attempts at engaged conversation in our culture. The "Whatever!" of Secularism even invades the church. Rather than be discouraged, take heart in God’s command in Deuteronomy 12:32.Seven Habits of Highly Suppressive People (Teen Session)
Why do people reject the reliability of the Bible? It is not the common objections that people give. Rather it is because they "suppress the truth in unrighteousness." (Romans 1:18) Christians should be able to answer those objections. Christians should, also, be able to recognize the seven habits that people develop in suppressing the truth which are listed in Romans 1:21-23. Come see these seven habits come to life through interviews with non-Christians on a college campus. Learn how you, too, can give a defense of your faith in gentleness and reverence. (I Peter 3:15)Four Duties of a Good Soldier of Christ Jesus (Teen Session)
"Have fun with me as a good soldier of Christ Jesus--____!" It is very difficult to think and live biblically. The Wiseman calls Christians to exhibit wisdom in their deeds. Christians must understand and exercise four essential duties in order to please the One Who enlisted them as soldiers.You Gotta Have Heart (Teen Session)
The secular Wizards offer the appearance of compassion. In reality it is merely smoke and mirrors. Meet some of these Wizards who claim love is a many splendored thing that begins with self-love. These Wizards proclaim selfishness is the proper attitude. In contrast, come, learn the Way of the Wiseman.The Ways of the Wizards vs the Way of the Wiseman (Teen Session)
The wizards are everywhere in our culture today. They promise that if we follow their yellow brick road we can have it all—a brain, a heart and courage. The wizards even promise us a way home. However—"There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death." (Proverbs 14:12) These wizards include evolutionists, new agers, atheists and sincere followers of false religions. The wiseman, on the other hand, knows the right path to follow and to whom he should listen. Christians are to learn how to walk as wise men, "making the most of our time, because the days are evil." (Ephesians 5:15) Come join us as we take a walk on the "wise" side. You will learn how to distinguish between the ways of the wizards and the way of the wiseman. You will learn how to destroy secular arguments "raised up against the knowledge of God" and learn how to "take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ." (II Corinthians 10:5)WWJD!??!?!!? (Teen Session)
Who cares what Jesus would drive? Christian environmentalists are asking the question in order to "drive" the church to proclaim a greener Gospel. Have Christians missed the importance of caring for the earth by focusing for so long on other social issues such as abortion, euthanasia, Marxism, terrorism, gambling and premarital sex? Can we not sit in the same pew with environmentalists’ groups without compromising Truth and Grace? How should we, as Christians, address the environment without worshipping Mother Earth?Counterfeit Reality (Teen Session)
The biggest and most enduring Counterfeit Reality of all time is most cleverly foisted upon people through film. See how moviemakers convey a secular worldview to the public in the blink of an eye! Keep in mind Colossians 2:8, and keep focused on Bill Jack’s media examples and use of technological illusions. Otherwise, you may lose sight of True Reality.
