Part of our discipleship as followers of Jesus is growing in our ability to think about our faith. As teens get older and go to college, they will face many challenging questions from a secular society. How will they answer? In these talks, Patrick attempts to give teens an understanding of some of the Big Questions they will face as they grow in their faith. We think these talks will produce great conversations for you and your teens to address the questions they are probably wondering about, but maybe haven’t asked yet.
WEEK 1: IS THERE A GOD?
Is there evidence for the existence of God? Is our faith just that—a leap of faith—or is there more to it? Theologians and philosophers have asked these questions for thousands of years, but have your teens ever really heard arguments for the existence of God? This lesson will introduce them to these ideas.
WEEK 2: CAN WE TRUST THE BIBLE?
How reliable is the Bible? Is all of it true? How do we know?
To begin we have to ask ourselves by what criteria we are judging the Bible. In this lesson we’ll dive into how we know we can trust the Bible, and ask some of the big questions surrounding why we believe it is accurate.
WEEK 3: WHO IS JESUS?
Is there historical evidence for the existence of Jesus? Who did people think he was? Who does the Bible teach that he is? What did he say about this?
WEEK 4: THE HOLY SPIRIT
Without the Holy Spirit all of this is just head knowledge that does not transform us, making it almost worthless. The Holy Spirit is critical to our faith. Some question or suggest that the Holy Spirit may simply be an impersonal force of some kind, a source of power controlled by God but not fully a person himself. Others suggest that perhaps the Holy Spirit is just another name for Jesus, in spirit form, apart from his body. This week we are going to look at who the Holy Spirit is, what his purpose is, and what role the Holy Spirit plays in apologetics.
