Presentation Transcript



  • After studying all of these other religions and then studying Christianity it’s important to remember that God won’t force Himself on us, it’s our choice.
intelligent design
  • Are we here by chance or by design.
  • Why do many agree with intelligent design with everything else but creation?
  • “Suppose you suddenly hear a loud bang… and you ask me, ‘what made that bang’? And I reply, ‘nothing it just happened’” (William Lane Craig).
why christianity over all others
  • Only one religion can be true
  • Many differences (Islam, Buddhism, Christianity). Have shared beliefs of all and others with you.
  • “Either Jesus is true and all other religions are false or other religions are true and Jesus is false. There are not other options” (William Lane Craig).
absolute truths seperation
  • Definition- Something that is true for all people, at all times, and at all places.
  • Examples: Premarital sex, Crime, Killing, etc.
  • To say there are no absolute truths is an absolute truth itself which refutes itself.
  • From this we know atheists, agnostics, and hinduism can’t work (truth is what you want it to be).
int design and abs truth
Int. Design and Abs. Truth
  • From intelligent design and absolute truths we have to agree that there is something more to live for than just us.

  • 10. The Scrolls are for the most part, written in Hebrew, but there are many written in Aramaic. Aramaic was the common language of the Jews of Palestine for the last two centuries B.C. and of the first two centuries A.D. The discovery of the Scrolls has greatly enhanced our knowledge of these two languages.
