Why do we trust the Bible?
Fundamental to the Christian faith is the belief that the Bible is God’s word. But why should I, or the average person treat these writings as ‘holy’ or ‘divinely inspired’? This question puzzles many people, both believers and sceptics. As a pastor at Cornerstone Community Church, Scott Mackay is passionate about the Bible. He will give us practical ways to explain the uniqueness of the Bible to others, and why the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments are so important to Christians. You will leave this seminar knowing why Christians trust the Bible as the inspired word of God, and how to explain that well to a world which is hesitant to believe.
Mastering or Mastered by Technology?
We hear repeatedly about the negative effects of growing up in a generation that has never known life without the internet or mobile phones. But what can a Christian in this generation do short of joining a monastery to live in a way that glorifies God. In this seminar you will get a chance to examine your own relationship with technology and consider some principles that will help you to put technology in its proper place in your life.
