Apologetics 1: Introduction

This week we began our new series on Apologetics, which we will be studying for about 9 weeks. We talked about some basic worldview topics and we discussed why we do apologetics, then finished up with a discussion of presuppositionalism vs evidentialism. We did sing the song “Agnus Dei” by Michael W. Smith, but due to copyright issues, we had to cut the singing and begin with the discussion section. Lesson given Sept 30, 2018.
