Everyone has a worldview -a way of thinking about God, man, purpose, moral choices, ultimate destiny, and even finances/economics - establishing that only the Christian worldview addresses these concepts in a way that is both internally and externally consistent.
Training believers to respond to objections leveled against Christianity with reasonable arguments; using theology, history, archaeology, science, philosophy, and ethics in a manner that honors God and the truth being defended.
Almost 75 years ago, C.S. Lewis identified that the study of logic had disappeared from public education. That is still true today, even though logic helps us avoid faulty conclusions and beliefs. This almost extinct topic has new breath as we promote the laws of non-contradiction, excluded middle, and identity; plus identifying and avoiding logical fallacies.
Teaching people of all ages the reliability, inspiration, and inerrancy of Scripture. Training how to read and study the Bible as one consistent story from Genesis to Revelation by utilizing the best available resources to aid in the interpretive process and application to all areas of life.
Equipping Christians to understand the teachings and cultural elements and implications of the major world religions including Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Mormonism, and Jehovah Witnesses, as well as many other less common religious views.
Whether we are looking at our household budget or trying to decipher what politicians are doing with the national budget, it is necessary to understand what Scripture teaches regarding economics. This discussion includes economic philosophy, economic systems, materialism, debt, taxes, and more.
Encouraging and equipping believers to boldly proclaim the Gospel to a world that is often hostile to Christianity and its claims to objective truth.
Equipping Christians in the one story of the Bible with a holistic approach of tools and resources in order to grow in knowledge, faith, and living out of an orthodox Christian faith.
Analyzing the moral questions and policy concerns of our culture, advocating for human dignity and flourishing, while rooted firmly in a Christian worldview.
Solid Reasons envision an apologetic that is biblical and narratival, centering on the King and His Kingdom. Solid Reasons conferences bring the church together to reimagine apologetics for our late modern context. May their efforts flourish.
Acceleration in the creation and dissemination of information has left the church reeling as it struggles to keep up with rapidly changing ideas and a changing culture. I like the idea of an annual conference dedicated to thinking about some of those changes biblically. Solid Reasons is doing just that.
I am thankful for Philip Alexander and his leadership at Solid Reasons, an excellent ministry that is preparing this generation to stand strong while loving Christ with both the heart and the intellect.
Solid Reasons' presentation, to our youth group on the validity of the Bible and the importance of the Resurrection in the Christian Faith, was not only well-informed and professional, but also passionate and full of God's Grace. I would recommend Solid Reasons to any group desiring to inform, encourage, and compel an audience about The Bible and it's claims.
