The insufficiency of Scripture and the apologetics imperative

The insufficiency of Scripture and the apologetics imperative ISCAST.org [email protected]

Introductions Me You (why are you here?) ISCAST.org What is apologetics? Your understanding?

Stools and quadrilaterals Biblical roots ISCAST.org 1 Peter 3:15 Always be ready to make your defense (an apologian) to anyone

who demands from you an accounting (lo/gon something said, so a reasoned case or argument), for the hope that is in you; yet do it with

ISCAST.org gentleness and reverence. Rom. 2:15 Gentiles show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their

thoughts now accusing now even defending (apologoumenwn from apologeomai to give an account of oneself, to defend oneself) them. ISCAST.org What are the benefits of apologetics?

ISCAST.org Establishes believers Deals with doubts of believers and unbelievers Enables cultural understanding Opens doors (schools etc.)

Why dont people believe? 3 As B ISCAST.org So, who is apologetics

for? Susy science High school Henry ISCAST.org Can a scientist believe in God?

ISCAST.org Mentone Grammar School Year 12, Sept. 2018 ISCAST.org Big bang history

BIG BANG NOW The Book of Gods Works - Psalm 19:1-3 The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

2 Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. 3 They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them. ISCAST.org ISCAST.org

A gender-neutral edited version: Let no one think that a person can search too far, or be too well studied in the book of Gods word, or in the book of Gods works; rather let people endeavour an endless progress or proficiency in both. ISCAST.org

The naturalist view: In a universe of blind physical forces and genetics, some people are going to get hurt, other people are going to get lucky, and you wont find any rhyme or reason in it, nor any justice. The universe we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at

bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil and no good, nothing but blind, pitiless indifference. Questions science cant answer Moral questions Should we use weapons of mass destruction? Should we legalise euthanasia?

Is torture wrong? Philosophical questions What are the limits of science? How do we know science leads to truth? Existential questions What is the first cause of the universe? What is the purpose of human life?

Is there a God? Why is the water boiling? Meanings vs. mechanisms A question about mechanics: What causes the water to boil?

A question about meanings: What is the purpose of the water boiling? Why are we here? Why is she crying? Science searches for the mechanisms and laws of the universe

Christianity is not science answers the how questions doesnt answer the big questions Christianity is different offers answers to the big questions

not interested in how questions The Bible teaches how to go to heaven not how the heavens go. ISCAST.org Can a

scientist believe in God? Absolutely! So what? You? Your church? Your school?

Your theological college? ISCAST.org
