OBJECTIVES

This video series covers nineteen educational objectives. These objectives are split up into three big ideas covered in three sections over eight lessons. The three sections are titled “The Big Concepts,” “The Big Contenders,” and “The Big Criticisms.” “The Big Concepts” covers the truth about truth, God, and miracles. “The Big Contenders” covers the truth about world religions and cults. “The Big Criticisms” covers the truth about evil, pain, and suffering. In addition, an optional introductory session is included that is designed for environments where students have little or no previous experience with apologetics.

The following objectives are a comprehensive list of what you can expect to learn from this video series. Although these objectives do not represent every concept covered, it is reasonable to expect that everyone who completes this course should be able to achieve them. The objectives are: ​

  1. Define Christian apologetics. ​
  2. Explain why Christian apologetics is important. ​
  3. Define truth. ​
  4. Evaluate this statement: “Christianity is true for you but not for me.” ​
  5. Defend this statement: “The Bible is wholly true in all it affirms.” ​
  6. List three reasons, other than the Bible, why we know God exists. ​
  7. List the three major worldviews. ​
  8. Explain how we understand Jesus is God. ​
  9. Explain why this statement is false: “Christians claim they worship one God, but they actually worship three: Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and God the Father.” ​
  10. Define miracle. ​
  11. List three reasons miracles are critical to Christianity. ​
  12. Describe three characteristics of a world religion. ​
  13. List the four major world religions. ​
  14. From a Christian perspective, define cult. ​
  15. Describe three ways cults differ from Christianity. ​
  16. Explain the differences between a world religion and a cult. ​
  17. Answer this question: “If God is good, why did He create evil?” ​
  18. Explain why God allows painful things to happen. ​
  19. Explain how you would answer a friend who asked you to give a Christian answer to the argument below:
    • If God is all-good, He would destroy evil.
    • If God is all-powerful, He could destroy evil.
    • But evil is not destroyed.
    • Therefore, there is no such God.

We Need One Another



We need one another.

IMG_4323As a Pastor’s wife, Wendy has been a consistent support to me in both good times and bad over the years. Just last Sunday, I was feeling a bit discouraged between preaching multiple services, and she kept me going. Nothing specific was wrong; I was just feeling the usual drain of energy from preaching. I’ve been told that preaching 30 minutes to an hour is equivalent to 8 hours of work. I’m not sure that’s true, but I was struggling to recover and get ready for the next service. I sent Wendy a text and asked her to come backstage with me. She was there for me when I needed her. She gave me some words of encouragement and offered to pray for me. I actually went out and preached the sermon better than I had in the previous service. Wendy even sent me a text just afterward and reminded me of one of the quotes I used in the sermon. “Sometimes we like to throw in the towel on things, but God throws it back and says, ‘Don’t give up!'” It was really encouraging to me.

We need one another.

13725273_mI believe the church should operate like a hospital. A hospital without doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals wouldn’t be much of a hospital. But, a hospital without sick people wouldn’t be much of a hospital either.

Churches should be full of spiritually sick and hurting people who are getting help. The church is the perfect place for imperfect people. Have you ever sat in church, wondering if you’re not good enough to be there? I know I have. But that is precisely why we should be there. Jesus himself said, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners” (Mark 2:17). 

There are lots of “one another” statements in the Bible. I want to focus our attention on an important one for this time of year. Galatians 6:2 says, “Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” We need one another when we learn, and we need one another even more as Christians. We need one another when we are just doing life. But we especially need one another when we mess up and find ourselves in tough times. Let me show you an important distinction between the word “burden” and the word “load” in what Paul is saying here in Galatians 6.

Galatians 6:5 – “Each one will have to bear his own load.”

Screen Shot 2019-12-14 at 4.45.15 AMEvery Christian is responsible for carrying their own load. We all have a load to bear, but it’s comparatively light. The word “load” is different from a “burden.” Paul used two different Greek words to describe these two types of weight. The “load” in verse 5 is our normal weight of responsibility, but the “burden” in verse 2 is excessive.

Galatians 6:2 – “Bear one another’s burdens.”

Screen Shot 2019-12-14 at 4.45.23 AMChristians are to bear one another’s burdens continually. The word “burdens” comes from a Greek word that refers to heavy loads that are difficult to lift and carry. It represents any difficulty or problem a person has trouble coping with in life. This is exactly what Wendy helped me with last weekend.

We need one another.

Who do you know that has a burden this Christmas?
