"Equipping Cultural Influencers with a Christian Worldview"

"Homosexuality: Compassion and Clarity" & "Answers About Intelligent Design

Dr. Sean McDowell Professor of Worldview & Apologetics Biola University

Exploring Three Topics:
Homosexuality and its step-child, same-sex marriage, are without question, two of the prominent discussion points in the public square today. Sean has co-authored a book on these subjects and will speak to us from his background on these issues. You will find that he speaks with grace as he points to the dangers of these lifestyles. He will give us a thumbnail view of the historical record of traditional marriage.

The Concept of Intelligent Design (ID) - Since 1859 when Darwinism burst on to the scene, we have seen evolution increasingly embraced as indisputable. ID has been a tool useful in combating this pathology. There are segments of ID that we need to be careful of. However, showing people - who will not consider scripture or segments of science - the evidence of a designer can be a pathway to Truth for them.

Connecting with Millennials is the life passion of Sean McDowell. This age group of twenty-something's has been disillusioned about the Christian worldview, marriage, and other cultural issues. How can we be affective at connecting with them?

And a fun role-play with a hard core ATHIEST :)

Answering tough questions about cultural shaping ideas - from a Christian perspective:
  • A cosmological shift; same-sex marriage, how did we get here?
  • It's here! What does God think about marriage and how does the church respond with grace?
  • Does the case for one-man one-woman marriage only depend upon scripture?
  • Dealing with the "born that way" vs. attractions issues.
  • A productive encounter with an atheist... and you?
  • Is Intelligent Design (ID) an argument for a Creator?
  • Does recent scientific data in cosmology, physics, biochemistry, and biology point toward a designer?
  • How do organs and organisms that are irreducibly complex square with macro evolution?
  • How do we reach Millennials - they are our future?
