“Defending the Faith” with Dr. Jonathan Strand (Principal, School of Theology, Ethics, and Leadership, Concordia University College of Alberta) will be the next Quest course offered by Concordia Lutheran Seminary in Edmonton. There will be four sessions: Jan. 20, 27, Feb. 3, 10, 2015. Each session is from 7:00pm – 9:00 .
Session One: The Concept, Theology, and Practicalities of Defending the Faith
What is ‘defending the faith?’ What is the theological basis for defending the faith? And how might we defend the faith most effectively?
Session Two: The Case for God
How an understanding of scientific reasoning, and a careful consideration of the world, provide strong evidence of the existence of God.
Session Three: The Case for Christ and Scripture
How the concept of God, and the historical evidence, indicate that Jesus really was God-in-the-Flesh. How Jesus’ teachings then indicate that the Bible is the Word of God.
Session Four: Dealing with Objections
How to respond to objections such as: ‘The evil in the world proves that there is no such God.’ ‘If God existed He would make his existence obvious.’ And ‘Science has shown that Christianity is not true.’
