• Always Ready Media Resource by

    1 Peter 3

    Through the practice of Christian apologetics, believers work to fulfill Peter’s mandate that we always be ready to give an answer for the hope that is within us (1 Peter 3:15). In this session, Dr. Stephen Nichols defines apologetics and looks at some of the most pressing issues Christian apologists face today from the social sciences and other areas. View Resource

  • Analogical Language (Part 1) Media Resource by

    Since God is transcendent, is it even possible for us finite creatures to say anything meaningful about Him? Can we describe the Lord with our words, or are our attempts merely descriptions of our own subjective feelings? In this lesson, Dr. Sproul introduces the fourth basic building block for knowledge: the principle of the analogical use of language. View Resource

  • Analogical Language (Part 2) Media Resource by

    The theologian Karl Barth claimed that God is “wholly other” from us. Indeed, if God truly were completely different from us, it would be impossible for us to describe Him. But since the Lord has created us in His image, we share a common ground with Him that enables us to speak meaningful about our Creator. In this lesson, Dr. Sproul continues to explore the adequacy of human language to describe God. View Resource

  • Aquinas vs. Kant Media Resource by

    Romans 1:18-21

    In Kant’s critique he touches on the concept of classical synthesis and gives a comprehensive critique of the traditional arguments for the existence of God. His was an attack against Thomas Aquinas’ view of natural theology. Here Dr. Sproul outlines Kant’s critique in detail and further shows that Kant’s critique leads one into a philosophy of irrationalism and to relativism, which sadly pervades our culture today.

  • Articulating a Biblical Worldview Media Resource by

    Romans 1

    In the previous lesson, we looked at ways in which Christians should not react to the hostility of modern culture. In this lesson, we will see what Christians should do. They must first understand the opposition’s worldview (a major goal of this series), and then they must clearly affirm the superiority of the Christian worldview with its twoist view of reality.

  • The Attack on the Bible Media Resource by

    In the book of Genesis, we read of the war that began all wars. Ever since that dreadful day, we have been living with the fallout of a bad answer to a simple question: Has God said?

Special guest Dr. John MacArthur delivers this message as he defends attacks on the Bible from both outside and inside the church. View Resource

  • The Case for God Media Resource by

    Romans 1:21

    Does God exist? If your answer is yes, then, can you prove it? Many Christians don’t know where to even begin to do this. Continuing the series “Defending Your Faith,” Dr. Sproul looks at some of the different approaches to apologetics and how each of them attempts to show God’s existence as he embarks on the Herculean task of making “The Case for God.” View Resource
