The Historical Reliability of the New Testament (part 1) – 2 Peter 1:16-18 (sermon audio)

We live in a day and age when no matter where you turn, media outlets and individuals are constantly making up or exaggerating stories in order to advance their own personal agendas. How do we know that the writers of the New Testament weren’t doing just that?  Can we be sure that what the New Testament tells us about Jesus is what actually happened 2000 years ago in Palestine?  As it turns out, we can, and in this lesson and in following lessons, we’re going to examine some ways that we can know that to be true.

Does God Exist (part 3) – Romans 2:12-16 (sermon audio)

As we deal with our friends, neighbors, and co-workers, we will inevitably come across people who do not believe that God exists.  Some will ask us why we still believe.  Over the past couple of weeks we have looked at answers we can give to that question, and in this lesson we look at a third, The Moral Argument for the Existence of God.

What is Truth? – John 18:33-38a (sermon audio)

The Oxford Dictionaries Word of the Year for 2016 was “Post-Truth.” This is a word that conveys the idea that facts do not really matter, and plays into the ideology of many who are skeptical of religious matters.  It is commonly asserted that truth is relative or that one cannot know truth.  But is this true?
As we study apologetics, it is necessary that we first lay a groundwork for the existence of truth and the ability to know that truth.  It’s also important that we answer the idea that all religious are true, which we will do in this lesson.
