An all star line up! This unique combination of professional evangelists, apologists, scientists and theologians will equip, motivate and inspire you in your walk and your witness for Jesus Christ.
Many Christians are familiar with the 'Roman road', a phrase used to describe specific verses in scripture that lead to the road of salvation. Why is it that our churches no longer seem to be able to connect people to that message? Filled with relevant topics including science, ethics, evangelism, morality, history and Christian theology, this talk reveals the long lost path (starting in the book of Genesis) that is crucial to connecting all of what the Bible teaches regarding the Gospel to our modern world.
We can tell when something shows evidence of having a human designer. So when things in nature show those same characteristics-only on a much more complex level-it makes sense to attribute that to a Designer as well. Jonathan discusses several evidences of magnificent design in nature, including DNA, molecular machines, the complexity of the cell, and more. He also demolishes arguments of 'bad design'.
The Bible says that animals and plants are to reproduce 'after their kind'. This talk discusses biological change over time, clarifying that the type of change observed has nothing to do with 'molecules-to-man' evolution, it is actually the very opposite. Natural Selection, anti-biotic resistance and genetic mutations are discussed. These topics help us understand how the great variety of animals that we have today could have descended from those on Noah's Ark, adapting to different post-Flood climates, and that biological 'molecules-to-man' evolution is an impossibility.
Did you ever wish upon a star? Many astronomers tell us that the most distant stars are over 14 billion light-years away and therefore conclude that the universe is over 14 billion years old. Evolutionary cosmologists tell us that, back then, the universe inexplicably formed itself out of nothing in what they call the Big Bang. On the other hand, the Bible tells us that God created the universe by speaking it into existence and that this happened about 6,000 years ago. This talk discusses the many problems with the Big Bang, as well as a new cosmology that explains how the universe can be over 14 billion light-years big but the earth only 6,000 years old and other evidences from space that support the Biblical account of creation.
Lunch Break (11:30am-1:00pm)
Most children (and adults) love dinosaurs! Sadly they are used by evolutionists to indoctrinate many kids into believing in millions of years of evolution that destroys the fundamental basis for the message of Jesus. Learn the Biblical truth about these monsters that God made that show evidence of God's creation!
How can we reach a society with the Gospel where there is no knowledge of the Bible, most people have heard of, or believe evolution, and the Bible's accuracy is under attack (especially in Genesis)? This powerful presentation examines various approaches to evangelism (from Acts 2, 17 and 26) and applies these to today's Canadian culture, encouraging Christians to become bold in witnessing.
A six day, young earth understanding of Genesis is the only one that comes from the text itself, which is why the rest of Scripture interprets it that way. Long-age views are a modern aberration that comes from imposing outside ideas of uniformitarian "science” upon the text. See how compromising views render the Bible meaningless to a dying world. You'll be encouraged and energized to hear there is no need for compromise and that there are answers. The evidence for Creation and the Bible's account of history is all around us if only we know how to look for it, and Jonathan will show you how to do just that!
Dinner Break (5:00pm-7:00pm)
What does nuclear physics have to do with the age of the earth? Well... everything... and nothing. How can that be? That sounds like unclear physics - but it will be made "crystal” clear during this session. The fallout from this session will be an understanding why young earth creationists do not need to be shielded from nuclear physics, as it is not harmful to their position but is more like radiation treatment destroying the cancer of long-ages.
Why did science flourish in the West, and only the West? The biblical worldview provided the presuppositions that allowed science to flourish while it was stillborn in other places such as Greece and China. Evolutionists deny this biblical foundation for science by accusing Christianity of superstitions that held science back. Jonathan deftly busts the myth of the 'Dark Ages' - a time marked by many scientific advances. He also busts the myths of Galileo, belief in a flat earth, and more.
Creation Ministries International (CMI) is a Christian apologetics ministry dedicated to upholding the authority of the Bible by equipping Christians to defend their faith and enabling them to give answers to the questions many people have regarding science and the Bible.
The mantra of the 'new atheists' is that, since evolution is a fact, the Bible is wrong and there is no Creator to be accountable to. As a result, most Christians have questions about the accuracy of the Bible, especially Genesis and the creation/evolution issue.
With more PhD scientists on staff than any other Christian ministry, CMI speakers are more than qualified to help equip your congregation to answer the tough questions brought against Biblical truths.
This multi-day conference will address many hot topics faced by believers today related to biblical authority, including many aspects of the creation/ evolution issue by leading experts in their field of study and ministry.
The creation/evolution debate is not something Christians can avoid or afford to ignore. Prominent Christian leaders agree.
