Description:

In 1 Peter 3:15 we are instructed to "Always be prepared to give an answer". And yet most Christian are unable to defend their faith through reasoned arguments. Using recent surveys to demonstrate the impact of the worldviews conflict on young people, this message hopes to inspire apologetics education to stem the loss of faith.
We will also address some the conflict that exists between the natural science and the Bible. What is the Biblical age of the Earth? Was Adam not a real man, or was he created by God from some evolved ancient ape-man. Many Christians hold to one of these views to reconcile naturalism with the Bible, and presume the flood of Noah was merely a local event. Succinct answers to these questions are provided, along with an encouragement to trust in the Bible as authoritative on early Earth history.

About the Speaker:

Chris AshcraftChris Ashcraft is a Christian educator employed as high school science teacher at Cedar Park Christian Schools. Formerly, Chris was a biology research tech specialized in plant tissue culture, and genetic transformation technology. He was employed at the Cotton Fiber Production Laboratory at Texas Tech University and the Plant Transformation Facility at Oklahoma State University, and lastly was the Plant Transformation Specialist for EDEN Bioscience in Bothell Washington.
He obtained a Bachelor of Science in biology from Wayland Baptist University in 1989, a Master of Science in biology from Texas Tech University in 1996, a Master of Education from the University of Washington in 2008, and a Master is Teaching Math and Science from Seattle Pacific University in 2012.
Chris moved from research science into the teaching profession to serve God in Christian education. His decision was motivated by the impact that secular science is having on people of faith. Today, close to 50% of Christian students lose their belief in God while attending secular schools. This tendency could be lessened if the Church was better equipped to defend the authority of Biblical teachings (1 Peter 3:15). To be prepared for these challenges, it is important that Churches provide regular educational programs on creation and other Bible apologetics.
