Proclaiming Truth In A Secular Age
In our post-Christian society — or as some have called it, an anti-Christian society — people are asking “Is there such a thing as truth?” Relativism has taken such a hold on our society that many people believe there is no such thing as absolute truth. As a pastor, how do you respond to the attacks and beliefs that are so prevalent in today’s society? How do you prepare your people to answer today’s skeptics?
There are relevant, intellectual, and practical ways to address today’s issues concerning truth. To help you proclaim truth in this anti-Christian society, the next issue of Enrichment will provide apologetic articles from Mike Beal, Paul Copan, Richard L. Dresselhaus, Graham Johnston, David Kinnaman, James Emery White, and Ravi Zacharias.
INTERVIEW WITH RAVI ZACHARIAS
Why is the Judeo-Christian worldview being attacked? Why has it become the pariah stepchild of worldviews while other worldviews are respected and reverenced?
JAMES EMERY WHITE
Have Christians retreated into personal piety and good works and offered mere feelings and philanthropy rather than hard thinking applied to the issues of the day?
How can pastors and Christian leaders encourage those entrusted to their care to handle the pluralistic challenges of our day?
MICHAEL J. BEALS
The challenges of relativism for faithful ministry are not new. Active churches that are alive in the Spirit provide a vibrant, stable refuge for those longing for a firm and enduring foundation.
On its current collision course, the cold war between Christians and outsiders is likely to deepen unless Christians take a serious look at their reflection.
How to make ancient history become undeniably good news.
GEORGE P. WOOD
If the church does not offer a convincing response to skeptical arguments, who will?
Will the Real Jesus Please Stand Up? A Comparison of the Person, Teachings, and Works of the Jesus in the Canonical and Noncanonical Gospels
Does the evidence support the popular claims that Jesus is merely a good man but not the divine Son of God portrayed in the Gospels? Those who are seeking truth have nothing to fear from the evidence.
The Bible — Can We Trust It? Moving Past the Translation Controversy and Defending the Bible in an Ever-increasing Secular Society
RICHARD L. DRESSELHAUS
Why we must move past the translation controversy and defend the Bible in an ever-increasing secular society.
A careful comparison of The Secret’s contents reveals that what its readers see is not what they get. And what readers get is not a newly discovered truth, but a repackaged, long-standing lie.
From the General Superintendent
George O. Wood
We do not need to concern ourselves with pastors and churches that do things differently from a past generation if people are being saved, baptized in the Spirit, and becoming fruitful disciples of Jesus.
