“Christian faith is not an irrational leap. Examined objectively, the claims of the Bible are rational propositions well supported by reason and evidence.” – Charles Colson
Have you ever felt like your faith was an irrational leap? Have you ever wondered about the existence of God or the veracity of Christianity? Or do you know others that have such questions, but you don’t feel capable of answering them? If so, apologetics may be for you. In apologetics we will be answering these types of questions for our own edification, and also to answer others who may have those questions about Christianity. We will be covering topics such as the existence of God, creationism vs. evolution, proving the Gospel and post-modernism throughout the semester through lectures, articles, discussions, and the Bible.

“Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important..” – C.S. Lewis
C.S. Lewis infers that the claims of the Bible and Jesus Christ are so earth-shaking and life-altering that we cannot settle with being indifferent towards them. Thus, the claims of the Christian faith are, at the very least, worth investigating. So we invite people of any type of background to come and investigate the Christian faith together with us in a welcoming environment where you can come with any and every question or concern. Our hope is that you’ll walk away with a clear understanding of what the Christian faith is, so you can decide for yourself whether Christianity will be to you “of no importance”…or “of infinite importance.”

For many Christians today, “theology” can seem unfamiliar or overly intellectual. Yet it is essential to the life of a believer and the health of the church. Our practical theology drives how we live and how we walk with God. Sample topics for ST I are “Attributes of God”, “Is the Bible Free From Error?”, “Did Jesus Descend into Hell?” and “How did Sin Enter this World?” Come and discover the amazing truths of Christianity with us!
Understanding the Bible Seminar

Location: 213 Gregory Hall
“If I were the devil,” writes J.I. Packer, “one of my first aims would be to stop folks from digging into the Bible. Knowing that it is the Word of God teaching men to know and love and serve the God of the Word, I should do all I could to surround it with the spiritual equivalent of pits, thorn hedges, and man traps, to frighten people off.” Perhaps you’ve felt caught in some of these very traps as you attempt to study God’s Word: “How does this passage have any relevance to my life?” “How do I know when the Bible is speaking literally or figuratively?” Through lectures, discussions, homework, and quizzes, UBS will teach you the basic skills you need for effective Bible Study. Whether a new Christian or an advanced Bible student, this seminar will be of help to you.
