INTRODUCING OUR MOMENT: HOW DOES AMERICA VIEW THE BIBLE? (Eric Mounts)

We still like mom and apple pie, but God and the Bible’s stock are falling in value in America. No longer are standards derived from the Bible seen as helpful. This night we will explore the academic, cultural, sexual and economic pushback against our good book. This evening will motivate us to explore the reliability of the Bible this summer.

CAN WE TRUST WHAT JESUS SAID? (Eric Mounts)

Is the New Testament reliable? How does it compare with other documents from antiquity that we rely upon?  Can those red letters making those wonderful claims be worthy of our belief? As a document, how does the New Testament fair among its ancient counter parts? This night we’ll explore the evidence.

JULY 10

IS THE OLD TESTAMENT RELEVANT TODAY? (Jon Dingeldine)

Is the Old Testament completely authoritative, trustworthy and inspired? How is homosexuality sinful, when bacon, shrimp, and tattoos are acceptable? Do we get to pick and choose what is relevant from the Old Testament? In this evening we shall develop a consistent way to read and apply the treasure of the Old Testament.

JULY 17

WHOSE INTERPRETATION OF THE BIBLE IS CORRECT? (Jason Walsh)

Is there a right way to interpret the Bible? If so, how do we decide how the Bible is to be read? God’s book is read and interpreted differently.  These different readings have spawned different denominations. During the Civil War, Americans in the north and the south justified their positions on abolition and slave holdings while reading and preaching from the same Bible. Today, critics of our evangelical faith say we are doing the same with our reading of the text regarding sexual ethics. Is that fair? How do we work to understand correctly what God has revealed for our good in the Bible? We’ll be answering that question in this evening’s session.

JULY 24

CAN I TRUST THE OLD TESTAMENT LIKE I CAN TRUST THE NEW? (Eric Mounts)

What about those thirty-nine books of the Old Testament? Can we trust them like we can trust the New Testament? We will all be deputized as scribes on this night and try our hand at transmitting the text. We will gain insight into the marvelous preserving grace of our Lord. God miraculously gave the text, then He marvelously preserved the text.

JULY 31

SO MANY TRANSLATIONS! CAN I TRUST MINE? (Eric Mounts)

How do we face the translation possibilities? Do a lot of different translations get us away from the original text?  Can I trust the version that I am using? What about those footnotes? Is my Bible the Word of God? We will answer these questions and more in this informative bow we will put on this summer’s reliability package!
