Links to All Christian Youth Summit Session Videos
If you missed our 12th annual Christian Youth Summit this past March 8-9, you can view all the sessions in the main gym below.
Stephen Williams spoke on How Do You Stand Firm After This Weekend?
He covered the manuscript evidence for the reliability of the Bible with personal stories about his conversion from a former atheist to an evangelical Christian, and the key role that apologetics played.
Prof. Mary Jo Sharp gave three important sessions:
Encountering the Problem of Evil in Everyday Conversation
The problem of evil is certainly one of the greatest obstacles to belief in the existence of God. It is commonly stated, “If God is good, why is there so much evil in the world?” However, it is also frequently stated in relationship to personal suffering, “If God is good, why did He allow my child to die?” This session is a three-step approach to how to recognize and effectively converse on the problem of evil in daily life.
Whether you are just beginning to dig into apologetics or your knowledge is extensive, engaging in conversation can seem intimidating at times. This session will focus on four elements of good dialogue; including how to use common questions to uncover what people really believe and to spark a deeper discussion on belief in God.
Responding to the Intolerance of the New Tolerance
We live in a confused world in which the truth is exchanged for lie. One exchange that is affecting Christians is that tolerance is exchanged for intolerance. Not only are people unsure of what’s offensive or of what’s not offensive, it seems more and more that the term “offensive” is being associated almost exclusively with Christian beliefs. “Who are you to judge” and “that’s hate speech” are rampant slogans of our day. In this session, we will look at how Christians can respond to the accusation of intolerance.
Nathan Betts of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries also gave three key talks:
None Like Him: Exploring the Uniqueness of the Christian God
It is often said that all religions are the same. But what makes the Christian God so different? Is there really any difference? In this talk Nathan Betts will discuss the utter uniqueness of the Christian God to all other gods.
The Power of Truth in an Anything-Goes Age
We now live in a fake-news age. While distrust seems to be at an all-time high, we still long for truth. One of the inescapable questions of humanity is what is truth and how do we know it? In this talk, Nathan Betts will discuss the current cultural landscape and share how the Christian faith has incredibly good news to offer us, and to the culture in which we live.
Responding to Three Major Objections to Christianity
In this talk, Nathan Betts will look at three common objections to Christianity, especially among students. Have you ever wondered if science and faith enemies? Or maybe you have wondered where God has been in your pain or if He is even there? Did Jesus Christ really exist? These questions are real, and they have a jagged edge to them. But the Christian faith offers profoundly meaningful and hopeful answers to these questions. Nathan will take a close look at what the Christian faith has to say here in this talk.
