Charlie’s Short Course in Evangelism, 8/29 in Enola, Pennsylva

Charlie Liebert, Christian Apologist, and Teacher will be leading a workshop in Enola, Pennsylvania on Wednesday evening, 8/29, 6:30 – 8:00 PM at Enola Church of God, 9 Sherwood Drive.  The workshop’spurpose is to equip Christians to Dialogue with non-Christians about the gospel.  All the material taught in this course is in the newly published booklet: “Charlie’s Short Course in Evangelism.” 

Part 1 lays the Biblical foundations for dialogue with non-Christians including Jesus’ great commission, and Jesus’approach to challenges, presuppositional apologetics and the biblical principle of the state of humankind, being dead in sin.  The raising of Lazarus illustrates the sequence of salvation.

In Part 2  we determine an unbeliever’s spiritual temperature, that is how receptive they are to hearing the Gospel. I’ll also offer an approach to sharing the Gospel.

Are they cold?They don’t have any real interest in the Gospel, andeven a satisfactory answer to their questions would NOT change their relationship to Christ.

Are they lukewarm?If they are lukewarm, you conclude they are interested in Christianity but don’t appear ready to believe.

Are they hot? You’ve taken their temperature, and they are ready to respond to the Gospel. For example, they may say, “This is the one problemkeeps me from believing in Christ” or “If I had real answers I could believe, I’d consider becoming a Christian.”

Knowing their temperature, you then share your testimony and, if applicable, go to Closure to lead them into a relationship with Jesus.

The third part of the workshop will be learning and rehearsing a series of dialogues to speak with various groups including Atheists, & Humanists, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and Mormons, (LDS)

Part 4.  One of the most common views in our culture is Materialism, andI’ll share some tools to dialogue with one of them. As a worldview, it’s often called metaphysical naturalism, which is the philosophy that nature is all that exists throughout space and time. The natural world, the universe, the cosmos, consists only of natural elements, matter, and energy— nothing else. The supernatural does not exist; just nature is real. Believers of this philosophy are forced to consider atheistic evolution as the onlyway to answer the question “Where did we come from?”

Three tools to expose Materialism’s fallacyare 1) Immaterial Opposites, 2) Historical Narratives and Absolute Scientific Laws.

The booklet prepared to teach this workshop is Charlie’s Short Course in Evangelism.  Which contains four sections and three appendices 1) Charlie Liebert’s Biography 2) Charlie Liebert’s Testimony 3) Using Mortality as an Evangelistic Tool.

The material for this workshop are from two of my books: 1) Always Be Ready to Give an Answer! 2) 12 Lesson Study Guide for Always Be Ready to Give an Answer! 

This short course booklet is now available as “Charlie’s Short Course in Evangelism.”

“JESUS” at Sight and Sound Theater.

Terry and I went to see the production of “JESUS’” at the Sight and Sound Theater in Lancaster on Wednesday.  This is our first time at S&S and we were amazed.  Sight & Sound’s unique theater experience begins with a 2,000-seat auditorium, a 300-ft stage that surrounds the audience on three sides, state-of-the-art technology and live animals.  The animals we saw included live pigs, sheep, goats, and horses all running up the aisles.  The show was amazing and I recommend it to anyone.  Parking was well organized we had no problem coming or going.  Here is some info about the theater and the JESUS show.

OUR MISSIONOur purpose is to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ and sow the Word of God into the lives of customers, guests and fellow workers by visualizing and dramatizing the scriptures, through inspirational productions, encouraging others and seeking always to be dedicated and wise stewards of our God-given talents and resources.

TIMELESS STORY OF RELENTLESS LOVE While Jesus’ story may be familiar, his actions are unexpected. He befriends outcasts and heals the hurting. He challenges social norms and confronts hypocrisy. He sets sail with fishermen and reasons with religious scholars. And the lives he touches will never be the same. From the streets of Jerusalem to the raging Sea of Galilee, there’s no place—and no person—that his love can’t reach.

Creatures with the “Breath of Life” are affected by death, the penalty for Adam’s SIN! Nephesh!

In addition to the classification system for living organisms, the Bible also separates what scientists call “higher” animals from all others.  The word used in Scripture is “nephesh” and is most often translated as “soul.”  It is also defined as the “breath of life.” God told Noah which creatures to take on the Arkand based on these instructions we conclude, animals that breathe will be saved in the ark, and those that are left outside will drown in the flood.  Since Insects do not breathe but absorb oxygen through other means, they do not have the breath of life(lungs). Insects can stay underwater for long periods of time, and a majority spend part of their life cycle in water. Insects did not go on the Ark but survive in the flood waters.

Now we define animal death as opposed to plant death. Plants don’t die in the same way the soul animals do.  For example; when you eat fruit like an orange you do not destroy its life in the seed because even if the seed passes through an organism’s body, it still has life. Plant it and watch it grow.  That is not true when you eat the chicken sandwich. The chicken has given up its life.

When the Bible talks about death as the penalty for sin, it refers to the death ofhumans and the creatures that have soul life, not insects or plants.  As people, we recognize this and grieve when a loved one dies.   We know in our hearts this is not the way life is supposed to be and that knowledge is part of our being made in God’s image. Watch an animal special on TV and see the lion take down a zebra, kill it and begin to eat it. Other zebras don’t grieve the death of one of the herb because they don’t have an awareness ofdeath as sin’s penalty and they are not made in God’s image.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nephesh (נֶ֫פֶשׁnép̄eš) is a Biblical Hebrew word which refers to the aspects of sentience, and human beings and other animals are both described as having nephesh. Plants, as an example of live organisms, are not referred to in the Bible as having nephesh. The term נפשis literally “soul,” although it is commonly rendered as “life” in English translations…  In Genesis 2:7 the text is that Adam was not given a nephesh but “became a living nephesh…” Nephesh, when put with another word, can detail aspects related to the concept of nephesh; with רוּחַrûach (“spirit”) it describes a part of men that is immaterial, like mind, emotions, will, intellect, personality, and conscience, Job 7:11.

Biblical use:  The word nephesh occurs 754 times in the Hebrew Bible. The first four times it is used exclusively to describe animals: Gen 1:20 (sea life), Gen 1:21 (great sea life), Gen 1:24 (land creatures), Gen 1:30 (birds and land creatures).

DNA Children’s Workshop Activity to Demonstrate the Superiority of Biblical Creation Over Atheistic Evolution. MEET TEAM AT (with Popsicle sticks)

The discovery of DNA as the means to transfer information to progeny is a show stopper for Atheistic Evolution.  Here is an activity from my children’s workshops to illustrate that information transfer requires intelligence.  This activity is one of the many in my new book: God’s Created Creatures Wreck Evolution.  A Teaching Guide for Biblical Creation. 

Learning Objective:1) demonstrate random processes do not generate information, and 2) the origin of information requires intelligence.

Method:Each team, usually 6-10 students at a table, will spell “MEET TEAM AT” using Popsicle sticks, simulating both the Evolution and the Creation models.

I selected this phrase because like DNA it contains four letters (M, E ,A ,T) and communicates information.  Evolutionists use blind random chance with no intelligence. Creationists use their minds and hands because God has both complete knowledge and ability.

Evolution Team:Blindfold one member of the team and then let them drop the sticks one at a time or in bunches to spell out “MEET TEAM AT” on the tabletop. You cannot use your senses to aim them; each drop must be random. You can’t touch or arrange them once they are dropped.

Creation Team:You can use your intelligence and work quickly. Place each stick on the table using your hands (ability) and your mind (knowledge) to make the letters to spell “MEET TEAM AT.”

Repeat:Reverse roles and let each team use the other model.

In conducting dozens of these workshops, I’ve never even had more than one letter formed, a “T.” I do get a lot of “X”s, but that’s not a useful letter. Here’s some student feedback.

  • “Mr. Liebert this evolution thing is never going to work.”
  • “Couldn’t we just peek a little to help Evolution along?”
  • “Why do people believe in Evolution?”
  • And the best from a twelve-year-old—”Do people really believe in Evolution? That’s stupid!”

Here, then, is one of the steps of faith for the Atheist. For evolution to work, information must arise from nothing without intelligence. An absurd belief!

Information Requires Intelligence: One of the laws of information science states that information only comes from an intelligent source and DNA is described as highly concentrated information. The more DNAis studied in real, living organisms, the more specific and complicated the coding is found to be.  We are just beginning to understand the coding and how that information is used to direct the construction of living organisms. A zygote, the fertilized egg in a woman’s body, contains all the data needed to construct a full-grown adult.

  • That one cell is a living human being! (This has many implications and I address it in “Always…)
  • Humans have twenty-three pairs of chromosomes filled with DNA.
  • In a human cell the molecule it is about 6 microns across.
  • One DNA molecule stretched out is more than six feet, two meters long.
  • The DNA molecule, double helix, contains the genetic code that is:
  • Billions of atoms arranged in unique order for each person.
  • Writing out this code would fill six hundred books of a thousand pages each.
  • All of which is contained on a pinpoint.
  • AND according to Evolution, it all happened by accident!

Introducing: God’s Created Creatures Wreck Evolution. A Teaching Guide for Biblical Creation.

Today I’m introducing my new teaching book for Christian Biblical Creationists, God’s Created Creatures Wreck Evolution. A Teaching Guide for Biblical Creation.      I became a Christian at age 35, in 1977. After about 4 years of study, I began teaching children and adults Christian Apologetics in several different church settings.  Seventeen years later, in 1994, I retired from the Corporate world and began conducting workshops for children, in homeschools, churches and Christian schools, showing “Creation” as the real explanation for our origin.   For about two years, from 1977 to 1999, I led workshops for Ken Ham’s ministry “Answer In Genesis.”   From all my teaching and writing experience I’ve developed many lessons using living creatures to show how Creation defeats Evolution.  In this book I’ve created a teaching tool for Christian educators and parents that use examples from the natural world to teach the flaws of Evolution to Grammar and Middle school children. http://sixdaycreation.com  

I’ll keep the language simple and use a lot of pictures to make teaching easy and fun. Most units are an even number of pages so you can open the book and see all of a lesson at one time, although some are in two parts.  As a long time, teacher of all ages I suggest, particularly with young children, using one lesson at a time.  Make the teaching fun and don’t be afraid to use the Internet to enhance your teaching but always use caution by keeping children supervised. SO, USE CONTROLS AND FILTERS!! May the LORD bless you when you use this book to teach your children.  The book is divided into four Chapters: 1) Science, 2) Day 5 the SEA, 3) Day 5 the AIR, and 4) Day 6 the LAND.  Each chapter shows examples of Evolution’s failure to explain nature’s creatures, their design and behaviors.  Each example contains goal(s) for that particular topic. There are more than 25 activities on 70+ pages with seven chats/tables and six worksheets.  All 135+ pictures are full color. Here’s four examples of some activity pages. ONLY $14.99 or $14.00 at my website http://www.sixdaycreation.com  Quantity discount? contact Charlie at  charlie@sixdaycreation.com.  If you buy it and like it please write a review on Amazon.

Building the Biblical Foundation to Teach Your Children.

A Christian parent’s primary responsibility to their children is to educate them in God’s Word. My new book  My Children’s Christian Education, What Should I Do?  A Christian Educator’s Analysis & Advice is now available for helping Christian parents understand the state of education in the US today and make the right education decisions for their educating their children. This new book shows theBiblical Mandate to teach your children and explains ALL the educational options available in the US today. One of the most critical aspects of acquiring wisdom is your leachability.  These verses emphasize the necessity to hear what God’s Word has to say to you.  Jesus talked many times about having ”ears to hear.” Read these verses several times.

Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Psalm 119:66 Teach me good judgment and knowledge, for I believe in your commandments.

Isaiah 28:9 “To whom will he teach knowledge, and to whom will he explain the message? Those who are weaned from the milk, those taken from the breast?”

Proverbs 4:13 Keep hold of instruction; do not let go; guard her, for she is your life.

Proverbs 9:9 Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; teach a righteous man, and he will increase in learning.

Ezra 7:10 For Ezra had set his heart to study the Law of the Lord, and to do it and to teach his statutes and rules in Israel.

These verses apply to all the people in Israel, including those that were not saved. We should also apply these to all of the population, for they are wisdom. If a non-Christian would allow Bible reading to his children, the Holy Spirit can teach those that may someday become saved. In spite of the lack of faith of the parents.  Here are verses that speak to the power of the Word to transform your mind, “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”  Romans 12:2

Colossians 2:8 See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.

2 Corinthians 10:5 We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God and take every thought captive to obey Christ,

2 Timothy 2:15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. (KJV uses “study to show yourself…”)

2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,

James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.
