I am Jim Carmichael
and this will be a series of videos concerning Christian Apologetics
each video will be 5 to 15 minutes long
My goal is for people to remember what is said, long drawn out sermons and lessons defeat that goal, so the will be short and to the points as much as possible.
With that said, I better explain… first Apologetics doesn’t mean to apologize, but to give
A legal or logical defense for what you believe.
It comes from 1 Peter 3:15 where we are commanded to be ready and able to give
A reason for our faith, in a logical way, and a warning that we
Better do so meekly, and humbly.
Now the apologetics I will be covering in this series will cover;
<li>what does the bible really say?</li>
<li>how can we know the bible is the word of God? What supporting evidence is available?</li>
<li>how do we know it hasn’t changed over the last 2,000 – 3,500 years?</li>
<li>We will see the evidence that supports the reality of Christ</li>
<li>We will see evidence that disputes the theory of Evolution</li>
Now for a little “house cleaning” when defending the scriptures, we will only use bible verses, we will not use men’s doctrines, or opinions
When we go into the evidence that supports the bible as being factual, my arguments will be from scientific experiments, mathematics, or historically reliable sources.
You will have the opportunity to respond to whatever I say, but it must be backed up with scripture, or in the case of scientific facts, backed up by statements of fact, proven through the scientific process, which is either observing something that may have occurred, or being able to reproduce the events.
Very seldom will I quote something from my own experience or knowledge.
I will quote from men who are professionals in their chosen field, and have completed extensive studies of the subject.
Most of the topics will simply be read aloud, or there could be accompanying videos.
I do this because many people do not want to take the time to read the articles, but will take time to listen.
I will also when possible, provide the Witten form in the videos as well. That is when you are viewing the videos on my website… jimcarmichael.org
