(See the full list of our speakers for 2019-2020 put them on your calendar now)

Abdu Murray Esq. – North American Director, Ravi Zacharias International Ministries Sept. 13-14th, 2019 at Faith E Church. (Details and ticket info. below)

Meet the Post-Truth Worldview:

  Where Postmodernism failed because it was incoherent, Post-Truth faces truth head-on.  It acknowledges objective truth, but subordinates it to personal, emotional preference.  Logic and evidence have no influence

Dealing with a Culture of Confusion:

Rampant confusion about reality is no accident - for a century the Progressive goal has been the destruction of truth.  From LGBT issues to socialism and what it means to be free, confusion reigns. From Ravi’s group comes a respected apologist to answer questions:

  • Is the Post-Truth culture leading to human freedom or unfettered human autonomy?
  • How is unfettered autonomy (life without boundaries) leading to cultural chaos – even spikes in suicide?
  • What is the fruit of this culture – loss of reason, moral accountability and objective human dignity?
  • How can we recover these – using Biblical reasoning and modeling?
  • In this culture, science is making less and less room for Faith. How do we counteract this prevalent mentality?
  • How have Christians fostered a culture of confusion with bad arguments, labeling, and emotional attacks?
