• Defending the Faith: 2018 West Coast Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    In our post-Christian culture, people are ignorant of basic biblical concepts, and the Christian faith is facing increasing hostility from the government, the culture, and the academy. Our call in such a day is not to be fearful, but to be ready. As Peter tells us in 1 Peter 3:15–16, we are to be prepared to give an answer for the hope that is within us. On June 8-9, 2018, Ligonier Ministries hosted its West Coast Conference in Seattle. W. Robert Godfrey, Steven Lawson, Stephen Nichols, Burk Parsons, Derek Thomas, and Ravi Zacharias considered the challenge of atheism, the truthfulness … View Resource

  • Standing Firm: 2012 West Coast Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    The Apostle Paul exhorts us from the book of Romans, saying, “If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.” Christians are not to be cantankerous and difficult to get along with. Instead, we are to be people who seek harmony and relational peace whenever we can. That does not mean, however, that we compromise the truth for the sake of peace. Peace that is not grounded in God’s truth is no peace at all. There comes a time when we must draw a line in the sand, when we must stand firm for the foundational … View Resource

  • Tough Questions Christians Face: 1998 Memphis Conference Conference with Francis Turretin

    The circumstances of life in our fallen world present persistent questions, even among mature Christian believers, which test our faith. Tragedy and suffering, in particular, evoke questions about God’s character and His plan for us on our Christian journey. In addition, new and seasoned students of the Bible and theology are often perplexed by puzzling questions about what God has revealed to us. If left unanswered, such questions can drive a wedge between us and our knowledge and love of the Lord. However, if we look in the right places for answers, our faith can be strengthened, our hope … View Resource

  • Defending the Faith in a Faithless World: 1995 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    The apostle Peter lived in a faithless world. Most people didn’t know the Gospel. Many viciously attacked it. In this context Peter wrote, “Always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you” (I Peter 3:15).  Our world is like Peter’s. Knowledge of Christian truth fades; hostility toward the faith flourishes. And we, fearing ridicule and exclusion, too often remain silent about the hope within us.  No longer.  Ligonier Ministries’ 1995 National Conference, “Defending the Faith in a Faithless World,” prepares you to answer those who challenge God’s glorious … View Resource
