Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Jack Theist Meets Dr. Secular: The Fiend With the Secular Mind (Colossians 2:8)
(Colossians 2:8) Train your students to discern world views and to understand their impact on every aspect of our culture. We will analyze the impact of world views on our culture through interviews with those who hold opposing world views. Great opportunity to learn practical tools to learn how to reach non-Christians and to confront the culture with the Truth.

Simple Tools for Brain Surgery (II Corinthians 10:5)
(II Corinthians 10:5) Non-Christians seem to have the advantage in our culture. We, as Christians, are sometimes intimidated by or even afraid to talk with many atheists, new-agers, evolutionists and other Wizards. Too often, we fear we won't have answers to their tough questions. Be encouraged. Learn four killer questions that will help to destroy the Wizards' secular thinking that is encasing the minds of friends, relatives and others. Learn to destroy the Wizards' sloppy, secular arguments without destroying the person.

Creation-Evolution—What's the Big Deal? I Just Want to Tell People About Jesus (Colossians 2:8)
(Colossians 2:8) "Who cares whether it was 6 days or 6 million years!?!?!? Isn't this discussion unnecessarily divisive to the Christian community? Are we not losing credibility with the scientific community and hurting the cause of Christ among non-Christians by insisting on a literal interpretation of Genesis 1-3?" Learn to respond biblically to such charges so that "no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception." Old-earthers, progressive creationists and other Wizards come try and stump the wild-eyed, fanatical, six-day creationist.

Counterfeit Reality
The biggest and most enduring Counterfeit Reality of all time is most cleverly foisted upon people through film. See how moviemakers convey a secular worldview to the the blink of an eye! Keep in mind Colossians 2:8, and keep focused on Bill Jack's media examples and use of technological illusions. Otherwise, you may lose sight of True Reality.

You Gotta Have Heart
(Jeremiah 17:9) Secular wizards offer the appearance of compassion. In reality it is merely smoke and mirrors. Meet some of these wizards who claim love is a many splendored thing that begins with self-love.

Follow Christ? It’s Just a ‘Fad’! Will it Pass the Test of Time?
(II Timothy 1:7) Christian parents and teachers want their children and their students to love God. They commit to training their children to love God with all! Exactly how does that translate into our culture? What is a FAD? Learn the three characteristics Christians must have and must instill in teens if we want Christianity to be a FAD for the next generation. The Wizard's promises become the illusion of a fad, a passing fancy; The Wiseman's promise is the FAD that will bless the next generation.

Taking What is Common to the Culture & Turning it into a Pulpit
(Acts 17:22) From peach baskets to pitching mounds, from movies to museums, from … well, come discover what tools and opportunities you might be overlooking to use in reaching this culture. Practical strategies and insights!

The Ways of the Wizards vs. The Way of the Wiseman
(Colossians 2:8) The wizards are everywhere in our culture today–-evolutionists, new agers, atheists and sincere followers of false religions. They promise that if we follow their yellow brick road we can have it all—a brain, a heart and courage. The wise man, on the other hand, knows the right path to follow. Come learn how to destroy secular arguments!

Four Duties of a Christian Soldier
(II Timothy 2:3) Christians should operate out of Faith and Duty. But what does that mean? What duties are we are to exercise? Christians need to learn and exercise four basic duties.

Torn Between Two Worldviews: The Christian in a Secular Culture
Train your students to discern world views and to understand their impact on every aspect of our culture. We will analyze the impact of world views on our culture through interviews with those who hold opposing world views. This is a great opportunity to learn practical tools to reach non-Christians and to confront the culture with the Truth.
