Event Descriptions

reTHINK Apologetics Conference
with Tim Barnett, Greg Koukl, JP Jones, Sean McDowell, Brett Kunkle, Alan Shlemon, & Odd Thomas

Laguna Hills, CA

Apologetics Conference

Ideas have consequences. The ideas you think are true will ultimately play themselves out in the way you live your life. Every. Single. Day. We all live at the mercy of our ideas. That's why the apostle Paul warns us not to be taken captive by the false views of this world (Col. 2:8). False ideas can really mess you up. Sadly, many Christians have been captured by the culture. Their thinking reflects the thinking of the society. Their worldview is no different than that of their unbelieving friends.

It's time to RETHINK. Rethink truth. Rethink faith. Rethink God. Rethink the Bible. Rethink Jesus. Rethink moral choices. Rethink you.

Ethics at the Edge of Life:
Clear Christian Thinking on the Most Troubling Bio-Ethical Issues

Weekend Seminar with Scott Rae, Ph.D.

Advances in medical procedures, technologies, and drugs have made issues of life and death more and more complicated. As Christians, because we care deeply about life and death issues, we are often tagged as people who are standing against progress and the relief of suffering. Hence, we need help from experts to understand what is really going on in modern medicine and how to make a persuasive case in the public square for the Biblical views. We are bringing in a world-class Christian expert on bioethics, Dr. Scott Rae to help us understand and defend the biblical position on the most difficult subjects: abortion, euthanasia, reproductive technology, and more.

Worldview and Apologetics Conference - Are You Ready?
with J. P. Moreland & Craig Hazen

Bend, OR

Apologetics Conference

Most Christians have a hard time clearly articulating the reasons for the faith and providing answers to a skeptical generation. This years conference speakers will equip the body of Christ to "always be ready to give a logical defense" of the Christian faith. "In your hearts set Christ apart as holy [and acknowledge Him] as Lord. Always be ready to give a logical defense [Apologia] to anyone who asks you to account for the hope that is in you. But do it courteously and respectfully." - 1 Peter 3:15

Privileged Species: An Exclusive Advanced Film Screening
with Dr. Michael Denton

BIOLA Campus - La Mirada, California

Apologetics Special Event

The renowned Australian biologist Dr. Michael Denton (author of the groundbreaking Evolution: A Theory in Crisis and Nature's Destiny) will present a new film highlighting his work that overturns the Darwinian idea that life on earth, especially human life, is the result of accidents in a blind and uncaring universe. Privileged Species is a documentary that explores growing evidence from physics, chemistry, biology, and related fields that our universe was designed for large multi-cellular beings like ourselves. The documentary investigates the special properties of carbon, water, and oxygen that make human life and the life of other organisms possible, and it explores some of the unique features of humans that make us a truly privileged species.

November 14, 2014

Time: Friday, 7 - 8:30 pm
Location: Sutherland Auditorium
Biola University
13800 Biola Avenue
La Mirada, CA 90639
Cost: $10*

*NEWS FLASH: A free DVD of the new film will be given to attendees at the event (one per household, while supplies last).
