10 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Why are we doing this? In 1 Peter 3:15 Apologia –Means to give a defence –Used in the phrase, Defence of the Gospel Phil. 1:7 Phil. 1:16

11 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> How do we do this? Be Sleq –Start –Listen –Evaluate –Question Write if possible –I write stuff down while they speak, if I can Look for hiccup

12 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> IGOR

13 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Sleq Apologetics Start with their questions Listen to their answers Evaluate their words Ask questions about what they said Who is in focus here?

14 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Start with their Questions What are they wondering? What did they comment on? What are they criticizing? Igor – The Bible is full of errors?

15 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Listen to their Answers Good time to write down statements –This can freak some out, but once you explain that you want to listen well, its cool. –You can also keep your latter questions focused by pointing at things they actually said. –Make sure to keep good eye contact, though. Focus on buzz words Do not go A.D.D. on them – stick to THIS discussion Igor – A million errors in the Bible?!?

16 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Evaluate their Words Pick out buzz words Organize thoughts Ask for clarification Igor – What do you mean by errors? Based on what?

17 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Ask Questions about what they Said Ask for more clarification Test with hypotheticals Offer conclusions/comparisons Igor – Can we talk about the top 50?

18 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Points of Concern No one saved in a debate The point is to listen Look for a hiccup Show respect And… The point is to Listen!

19 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Terms of Distance Syllogism Exegetical Fallacies Cultural Influence Stereotyping Main/Predicate bait and switch Incorrect Hermeneutical Logic Categorical Switch of Truth/Culture Much like a practical syllogism – a blanket assumption

20 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Terms of Distance Caricatures Micro-Argumentation Emotional Rejection/Distrust Wrong Definition Disproportionate Stereotyping An overemphasis on secondary Doctrine as Primary Negative experience that is real Wrong Definition

21 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Terms of Distance Doctrinal Conclusions Satanic Influence Genuine thoughtful doctrinal view, opposing biblical Christianity Spiritual warfare is real

22 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Two Big categories Doctrinal Issues Personal Issues Which is it?

23 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> The Big Question WHAT HAPPENED?

24 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> A Walk Back Home: A Progression of Degree to gain ground Is it Possible? Is it Probable? Is it Likely? Is it Actual?

25 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Answering Biblical Questions Apologetically Without Being Sorry 1 Peter 3:15

26 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Answering Biblical Questions Apologetically Without Being Sorry 1 Peter 3:15 an example

27 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Question #1 Cults, World Religions, Christianity & The Gospel

28 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Key Verse 2 Corinthians 11:4 (Context of all of Chapters 10 & 11 – Specifically 11:1-4)

29 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> 4For if one comes and preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted, you bear this beautifully. (NAU)

30 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Key Indicators Another Jesus A Different Spirit Another Gospel K.I.S.S. method - simplicity

31 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Brief overview of Mormon experience Met with a couple (Fosbergs) that we bought our Corgi from They had suffered a lot of loss and little to no aid from their Baptist and Methodist backgrounds Mormons helped them a lot They thought they were still in a Christian church

32 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Mormons – The Dialog Generally, one of two situations –New Mormons –Elders at the Door Most successful pseudo-Christian cult

33 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> The Fosbergs – New Mormons Thought it was Christianity Came from Christian backgrounds Something usually happens Zealous about newfound faith Attempted to go to Scripture Clarified for me on doctrines on topic Hiccup

34 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> The Topic – Three Heavens Doctrine –Terrestrial Heaven –Telestial Heaven –Celestial Heaven Text – They could not find, but 2 Cor. 12:2 Question – Why three heavens? –Why are three needed? –Answer: Because God would never send away even a wayward child – only deny Christ gets you sent away. Question – What about Matt. 7:21-22; 25:41? I never thought of that before... - Hiccup

35 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> SO… Are we really debating? What are we doing? Key verse and 3 indicators with cults? Is Mormonism Christianity?

36 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> SO… Are we really debating? NO What are we doing? Listening Key verse and 3 indicators with cults? 2 Cor. 11:4 Is Mormonism Christianity? NO

39 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Answering Biblical Questions Apologetically Without Being Sorry

40 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> apologetics apologetics. Occasionally called eristics, apologetics is the formal defense of the Christian faith. Pocket Dictionary of Theological Terms (Downers Grove, Ill.: InterVarsity Press, 1999), 13.

41 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Not to be confused with….. Apologizing

42 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Why are we doing this? 1 Peter 3:15

43 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> defense 15. but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence; -Peter 3:15 NAU

44 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Why are we doing this? In 1 Peter 3:15 Apologia –Means to give a defence –Used in the phrase, Defence of the Gospel Phil. 1:7 Phil. 1:16

45 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> How do we do this? Be Sleq –Start –Listen –Evaluate –Question Write if possible Look for hiccup

46 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Answering Biblical Questions Apologetically Without Being Sorry further examples 1 Peter 3:15

47 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Cults and Religions Discussed Mormonism Jehovahs Witnesses Catholicism 7 th Day Adventists

48 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> REALLY??!! CATHOLICS??!!

49 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Key verse for cults 2 Corinthians 11:4 For if one comes and preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted, you bear this beautifully.For if one comes and preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted, you bear this beautifully. Another Jesus Another Spirit Another Gospel

50 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> So, what about?...? Mormons Jehovahs Witnesses 7 th Day Adventists Catholics

51 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Mormons and 11:4 Jesus is just a spirit child of the gods (Mary and Adam), whos brother is Lucifer and is our elder brother. The Spirit is just a fluid dispensed for living, which is dictated by legalism. The Gospel is one where the atonement of Christ only removes past guilt and sins and enables one to work for salvation.

52 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Mormons and other doctrines Historically founded by Joseph Smith in early 1800s Claims special revelation from angel Moroni The Bible needs the Book of Mormon+ –Cultic formulation of so-called revelation –About 25,000 words verbatim with KJV –Multiple historical inaccuracies and changes

53 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Keep in Mind…

54 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Jehovahs Witnesses and 11:4 Jesus is first creation of Jehovah, known as Michael before – He is a god. The Spirit is just an it, an impersonal force. The Gospel is one where the atonement of Christ only puts us back to pre-Adam status and enables one to work for salvation.

55 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> J.W.s and other doctrines Historically founded by Charles Russell in late 1800s, which most JWs will deny Deny doctrine of Trinity Teach annihilation The New World Translation is extremely problematic –No textual Criticism –Terrible handling of original languages –All hermeneutics go through Watchtower

56 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Keep in Mind…

57 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> 7 th Day Adventists and 11:4 Jesus is also referred to as Michael in the Scriptures. The Spirit is essentially the same as Scripture, but not a Helper. The Gospel is one of legalistic works, following the Old Testament laws, although inconsistently. Christs atonement is not yet complete.

58 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> 7DA and other doctrines Historically founded by William Miller in mid-1800s Claims the writings of Ellen G. White are inspired interpretations Whites writings are equal with Scripture They teach soul-sleep and annihilation

59 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Keep in Mind…

60 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Catholics and 11:4 Jesus is viewed Scripturally, although often still on the cross. The Spirit is essentially the same as Scripture. The Gospel is one of legalistic works, in which the church is vicar of God and dispenses favor and salvation in a works fashion, historically without integrity.

61 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Catholics and other doctrines The Saints are mediators (1 Tim 2:5) Mary is co-redemptress (Acts 4:12) The Pope has special revelation authority (2 Peter 1:20-21) Priest/Pope is vicar (1 Peter 2:9) Pedobaptism (Acts 2:38) Purgatory (2 Cor. 5:6-9; Heb. 9:27)

62 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Keep in Mind…

63 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> The Gospel a brief presentation…

64 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> The Terms Gospel Saved, Savior, Salvation Sin Repent, repentance Jesus Wrath Judgment Belief Election Grace Faith Adoption Confess Rebirth Calling Death Man

65 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> The Terms, cont. Propitiation Reconciliation Conversion Regeneration Redemption Atonement Righteousness Conviction Sanctification Notitia (Intellectual) –Intellectual understanding Assensus (Emotional) –Conviction, acceptance Fiducia (Volitional) –Trust, belief Sola Gratia Sola Fide

66 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Some Terms Defined Gospel – Good News –euangellion Saved – protected, secured from harm or destruction (Ps. 3:8, 62:1-12; Rom. 10:9-10) Sin – disunity with the character of God, disobedience (Romans 3:23) Jesus – God, the Son, Whos death on the cross brought the opportunity of life (1 Thess. 1:10)

67 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Some Terms Defined Belief – Intellectual/emotional conviction of truth appropriated to ones motivational world view (Rom. 1:16, 4:3; Heb 11:6) Faith – hearing God and doing what you are told (Hebrews 11) Repentance – a change of heart/mind, resulting in a change of action (from-to) (1 Thess. 1:9; Acts 11:18; 2 Cor. 7:10; 2 Timothy 2:25)

68 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Some Terms Defined Grace – unmerited favor, gift from God (Eph. 2:8) Death – separation, negative relationship - ad infinitum Re-birth (Regeneration) – being recreated new in Christ, by God (John 3, 2 Cor. 5:17)

69 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Some Terms Defined Reconciliation – positive relationship restored Atonement – debt covering Propitiation – diversion of wrath Redemption – buying back Any others?

70 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> The Gospel The Gospel, simply stated is: the Good News of God as regards the bad news of sin, namely that because all men* are sinners and all men sin, all men earn the penalty of sin which is death. This death is brought about by Gods wrath because of His holy hatred of sin. This cannot be undone by man, for he is dead and sinful by nature (death cannot produce life and sin cannot produce righteousness). Therefore, man is destitute, hopeless in his sin, in and of himself. (* men = mankind) God, though, has provided a replacement for men in His Son, Jesus, the Christ, who

71 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> became a man, uniquely perfect, without sin. He, the perfect man, was able to take the wrath of God in our stead, our propitiation, and bearing God the Fathers wrath, made atonement for our sin. His atonement singularly and fully sufficed for the payment for all the sins of all mankind for all time and will be applied to all who believe by repenting, confessing and following God in His Son, thus resulting in a reconciled relationship with God having been reborn from above, a child of God. Truly, we are saved from God, by God.

72 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> The process of Salvation must include: A true* understanding of sin A true understanding of God A conviction of sin unto God A crisis of faith in Jesus, the Christ, as a repentant act of believing God A resultant new person, spiritually reborn –* true does not necessitate exhaustive

73 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> So, some incompatible and/or incomplete versions… God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life if you would just pray… Jesus is knocking on the door of your heart, will you let him in…(Rev 3:20) Hes dying to reach you If you do not want to go to Hell…pray this prayer… Any others?

74 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Mind-palette Cleanse Whats this?...

78 What is the acrostic? In Greek…

79 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >>

80 What is the acrostic? In English…

81 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >>

82 Stirring the pot - dialog Three issues: –Ordo Salutis – Logical/chronological succession of events –Is Jesus in your heart? –Lordship Salvation

83 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> When do things happen? Culvers Chart (see Robert Duncan Culvers Systematic Theology) Categories: –Logical order –Co-instantaneousness –Theocentric (God centered/initiated) Salvation is the empowerment unto… –Belief, faith, repentance

84 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Is Jesus in my heart? Tough Passages: Eph. 3:17; Col. 1:27; 2 Cor. 13:5; Romans 8:9b; John 14:23 Clearer passages: John 14:17, 16:7; Rom. 8:9a, 11; 1 Cor. 3:16; 2 Tim. 1:14 No

85 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Lordship Salvation Defined – A view of salvation that includes repentance and surrender to God as qualifications to true belief and faith in God, resulting in verifiable Christian works The opponents – this view {L.S.] adds works (repentance and subsequent* change of behavior) as pre-requisites to salvation, which is by faith alone.

86 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Lordship Salvation The history –1930s Lewis Sperry Chafer, He that is Spiritual, Carnal Christians B.B. Warfield, Book Review, Only one kind –1959 E. Harrison – Must Christ be Lord to be Savior? No John Stott - Must Christ be Lord to be Savior? Yes –1960s-1970s Ryrie – Balancing the Christian Life, So Great a Salvation, no Lordship

87 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Lordship Salvation The history, continued -1980s to Present -Zane Hodges – The Gospel Under Siege, no lordship -John MacArthur – The Gospel According to Jesus, Lordship – Became poster boy -Zane Hodges – Absolutely Free, NO LORDSHIP!! Many on both sides, a lot of emotional debate As far as the doctrines are concerned…I am with the lordship guys (See Jesus and worthy of the Kingdom...)

88 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> So, twalk amungst yaselves…

89 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Questions about the Gospel What is mans greatest problem? How does man get sin? (become a sinner) Why is sin bad? What does God do with sin? Why? What can man do about sin? Is there any hope? What? How does one partake of this Good News? What effect does it have?

90 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Again...

91 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> The process of Salvation must include: A true* understanding of sin A true understanding of God A conviction of sin unto God A crisis of faith in Jesus, the Christ, as a repentant act of believing God A resultant new person, spiritually reborn –* true does not necessitate exhaustive

92 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> The Gospel The Gospel, simply stated is: the Good News of God as regards the bad news of sin, namely that because all men* are sinners and all men sin, all men earn the penalty of sin which is death. This death is brought about by Gods wrath because of His holy hatred of sin. This cannot be undone by man, for he is dead and sinful by nature (death cannot produce life and sin cannot produce righteousness). Therefore, man is destitute, hopeless in his sin, in and of himself. (* men = mankind) God, though, has provided a replacement for men in His Son, Jesus, the Christ, who

93 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> became a man, uniquely perfect, without sin.

Truly, we are saved from God, by God.

94 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> Keep in Mind…

95 >>0 >>1 >> 2 >> 3 >> 4 >> We keep the truth of the Gospel in mind while we are being SLEQ with those we are talking to. Only the Truth of Gods Word will be our Lighthouse while we are out in the harbor with the world.
