Make a Defense – Origins Part 1 – Nature of God

Introduction

For the past several months I have been working on presentations which may be used with youth to prepare them to defend their faith.  I released an introduction a couple months ago and now I am releasing my first of two presentations on Origins.  Why am I doing this you may ask.  Well a recent Pew Research polls found that the number of professing Christians in America has decreased from 78% to 65% in the past 10 years.  Further one in three young adults abandon their Christian Faith soon after graduating from High School.  These are alarming trends.  Many young adults loose their faith while they attending college.  In this environment they are challenged to defend their faith and their reasons for belief are often questioned by atheist or agnostic professors.  This video is intended for use by inividuals or church groups, please feel free to watch and I hope it helps answer some questions.

Note: Clip of continental mega sequences taken from the Movie “Is Genesis History” as well as much of the verbiage for descriptions of the Naturalistic Paradigm and Creation Paradigm.

For the past several weeks I have been working on presentations which may be used with youth to prepare them to defend their faith.  Recent Pew Research polls have found that the number of professing Christians in America has decreased from 78% to 65% in the past 10 years.  Further one in three young adults abandon their Christian Faith soon after graduating from High School.  These are alarming trends.  Many young adults loose their faith while they attending college.  In this environment they are challenged to defend their faith and their reasons for belief are often questioned by atheist or agnostic professors.  There are several professional curriculum for teens and young adults which churches may want to consider.

The resources I am working on are a bit more short term; covering only 5 sessions.  Sometimes churches have other topics and material they feel is important.  I am trying to make this a subset apologetic material to answer some of the most common questions and objections that young adults and teens face. Inserted below is the first video in the series.

My eight year old son, Nolan, had to complete some optional activities for cub scouts.  One that we picked was Faith and Religion.  The book asked him to name some great people of faith.  Nolan asked me, “What do they mean by faith?”  I paused and thought to myself about the best way to explain it to an eight year old.  Here is the definition I came up with.

Faith is what you believe to be right and true and you are willing to stand up for it
