College students, parents and anyone who is interested in learning to maintain Christian faith during their college years should plan to attend How to College-Proof Your Faith, a free presentation offered by Jay Seegert of the Creation Education Center in Milwaukee, on August 20 and 21, 2016.
It is an alarming fact that up to 75% (or more) of Christian students end up walking away from their faith before they leave college! Why is this happening? What can be done?
College itself is not the root of this problem. This dynamic presentation helps expose what the real issues are via a very encouraging talk that will help students be prepared for the challenges they will face or are facing in college, without being intimidated or terrified by the thought of going off to college.
How College Proof Your Faith will be presented in four sessions. You can attend all four on Saturday, August 20th or divide the sessions with two on Saturday and sessions three and four on Sunday. See the schedule below along with descriptions for each session’s content:
- 9:00 am Session 1: Top 10 Questions (about Creation vs. Evolution)
- 10:40 am Session 2: Evolution: Probable or Problematic?
- 6:00 pm Session 3: HCC’s Cafe service with Scientific Evidence for the Inspiration of Scripture
- 7:40 pm Session 4: Faith is Not a Four-Letter Word
- 9:00 am Repeat of Session 3: Scientific Evidence for the Inspiration of Scripture. Worship service with repeat of Session 3: Scientific Evidence for the Inspiration of Scripture
- 10:40 am Repeat of Session 4: Faith is Not a Four-Letter Word
Top 10 Questions (About Creation Vs. Evolution)
Certain questions seem to arise very frequently regarding the creation/evolution controversy and this talk addresses the Top 10. It is an extremely popular presentation because it covers such a wide variety of pressing issues in single talk.
If God created the universe, who created God?What exactly is Carbon-14 Dating?Is there life in outer space?Where do dinosaurs fit in the Bible?Was there really an Ice Age?What about all the ape-men?Where did all the “races” come from?Where did all the water from the flood go?Antibiotic resistance – proof of evolution?Where did Cain get his wife?
Evolution: Probable Or Problematic?
Certain aspects of evolution occasionally seem fairly plausible to many people… even Christians. If we use our imagination, we can envision fish slowly turning into amphibians, with their fins gradually being transformed into legs and their lungs adapting to breathing air.
However, when we take a closer look at what actually has to go on inside (in the DNA) we see a very different picture. It’s like looking under the hood of a beautiful red sports car only to find that its engine is completely missing! Presenting some cutting-edge information about DNA, this presentation clearly demonstrates (in laymen’s terms) that molecules-to-man evolution is virtually impossible.
Scientific Evidence For The Inspiration Of The Bible
[similar to “How Do We Know the Bible is the Inspired Word of God?” except that it focuses solely on scientific evidence and goes into more detail in this area.]
Everything we believe as Christians rests on the assumption that the Bible is actually the inspired, error-free Word of God… but how do we know that? It’s not politically correct to believe the Bible alone is the inspired Word of God and most Christians cannot defend this belief. Are we to exercise blind faith, or is there a great body of evidence supporting this crucial point? This topic presents incredible scientific evidence showing beyond doubt that the Bible is truly the inspired Word of God!
Faith Is Not A Four-Letter Word
It is a common misconception that skeptics base all their beliefs on “facts”, while Christians simply have “faith” which amounts to nothing more than wishful thinking and belief in fairytales… or as Mark Twain stated, “Faith is believing in what you know ain’t so!”
This presentation shows just how incorrect this view truly is and also powerfully equips Christians to share and defend their faith without having to memorize lots of facts or have degrees in science. It is very encouraging, eye-opening and easy for all to understand.
