Then Paul, as his custom was, went into them, and for three Sabbaths reasoned with them from the scriptures. Acts 17:2
The Book of Acts refers to the verb to reason more than 20 times when describing Paul and his missionary work. Its is from this capacity for rational thought that Jesus also taught. The Truth Project is a Focus on the Family Production designed to educate the Christian on the foundations of a rational and Biblical worldview. The DVD based project features 13 video lesson instructed by creator, Del Tackett PH.D, and covers information ranging from veritology (what is truth), philosophy and ethics, science, government, and more. Currently, our church home-Calvary Chapel Oceanside- is watching and learning from this amazing series in our attempts to serve God by unveiling the lies of our culture and unraveling the truth to the lost people of this world.
This blog will follow that journey and record my thoughts as well as the thoughts of others who want to contribute to this blog. After each lesson, I will record my thoughts on that lesson and their application as seen through my eyes. Please feel free to comment or contribute in any way that you like. If you have something you’d like to post, please send me an email and I will gladly post your thoughts.
Let me end with this clear statement: The Biblical worldview is the only correct worldview. It is one with no internal or external contradictions, it is logically consistent, historically and empirically verifiable, and is the only worldview that can rationally account for the preconditions of intelligibility that we so often take for granted. This does not mean that we fallible Christians can properly execute this worldview, no. Only Jesus can do that. However, any worldview outside of the Biblical framework is false and cannot lead anyone to heaven, This includes Darwinism, Hinduism, Mormonism (which is NOT a Christian faith), Islam, and others.
If what I’ve said offends or challenges you than please share your thoughts. I welcome your thoughts on that matter and would gladly engage in polite and logical conversations with you via this blog. It is my prayer that through this reasoned discourse we will discover the truth together and secure your place in the book of life.
Father, I pray for those who wander and those who also have dug their heels into false philosophies to see the light of Your truth. I pray that Your Spirit will enter into them of their own will and expel the irrational thought that pervades their minds. Lord I pray that they will discover You through their ability to reasonably examine the facts as You’ve shown them just as You did upon Your glorious resurrection. In Jesus name. Amen.
