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.”

Newspaper Article “Liberated Lieberts” Jesus Rescues US!

My blog this week is a newspaper article I recently discovered published 18 years ago. It’s longer than my usual blog but worth reading.  I’m posting it because it dramatically explains Terry and my salvation and our call to Christ.  Note: This article originally appeared in the September 15, 2000 edition of the Charlotte World (North Carolina, USA) newspaper written by Paul Chesser.  https://answersingenesis.org/ministry-news/ministry/liberated-lieberts/

Greensboro NC—Charlie Liebert’s idea of a good time back in New Jersey was to drink beer with a bunch of buddies and mock Billy Graham on television.

A self-described “atheistic evolutionist,” Liebert would ridicule the fact that he and his friends were “sinners.” Despite the foolishness of the times and circumstances though, he says it still had an effect on him.  “The point was, I heard the Gospel go in,” he said.

The former chemist from Greensboro has repented to the point where he teaches creation science workshops, contracting regularly with the ministry Answers in Genesis. He even looks scientific, with receding hairline, a full, neatly trimmed beard and rounded glasses. The name “Liebert” gives the impression that the stereotypical German laboratory accent might tumble from his lips, but his dialect is distinctly Long Island.

Liebert grew up in New York as the son of German immigrants. His father, who was half-Jewish, emigrated from his mother country at the age of 13 in 1928. Liebert’s grandfather was a German officer in World War I.

Attending public school on Long Island, Liebert said science teaching indoctrinated him into evolutionist beliefs. He followed his parents to Methodist church but dropped out at age 16 when the pulpit preaching on the evils of alcohol contradicted what he knew about the lifestyles of much of the congregation.

Most of Liebert’s chemistry career covered his 27 years with Ciba-Geigy, whom he started working for in 1967. Six years later the company relocated him to Greensboro, and by then he and his wife, Terry, had two small children under age three. Not long after arriving in North Carolina, Terry decided to become involved in church again after a long absence, mostly for the children’s sake. Terry’s upbringing had been solidly Catholic, but she started attending an Episcopal church, which she enjoyed for its social aspects.

“It was a good middle ground for an ex-Catholic and Methodist,” she said.

Charlie would have none of it, so Terry would leave the children home with him on Sunday mornings. A few months of child-care responsibilities, however, inspired Charlie to start going to church with Terry.

At the same time, they experienced severe marital strains. Charlie succumbed to temptations with alcohol, and in 1977 they started talking about divorce. By then, his worldview had progressed from atheist to agnostic—mild progress.

Nearing his low point, Charlie attended a retreat in Asheville in March 1977. It was there where a workshop speaker, and the Holy Spirit, confronted him with three questions that he couldn’t answer:

What’s your purpose in life?          What does life mean?         Where are you going?

“I could see myself going down the tubes,” said Charlie. “So, I said, ‘God, if you’re there, come in; I need some help.’”

At that point, he said he was completely confused intellectually. Everything he had ever learned about science and evolution was a contradiction to what his new spiritual life represented. “I had to renew my mind,” he said.

Charlie returned home on fire for God and immediately began engrossing himself in the Bible and other books to straighten out his scientific puzzlement. Meanwhile, Terry felt left in the dust. She was never interested in science and resented all his reading.

“It was an immediate change in him,” said Terry. “But he didn’t know how to share the gospel with me. I was in such darkness.”

It began almost two months of spiritual depression for Terry, with most of her time alone spent “constantly crying.” Her best friend moved away in April, and with her marriage in tatters, she felt desperately alone. Her Catholic background and recent Episcopalianism collided in her mind, with neither making sense. She said: “The Lord was working in me.”

“Being a Catholic, you’re always in hell. I only saw flames in my mind,” she said. “And the Episcopal Church wasn’t looking for you to be born again, but for spiritual renewal.”

Two months after Charlie’s conversion, Terry traveled to a women’s retreat. It also turned out to be a catalytic event for her turning to Christ. Instead of merely understanding that Christ died for the sins of the whole world, Terry realized that He was her personal savior.

Christ filled the void of the friend who moved away and began healing their near-broken marriage.

“Being in Christ truly made us one spiritually,” remembered Terry. “Because we were so excited about the Lord, it was instant.”

Charlie continued to toil for Ciba-Geigy and read, read, read. Three years passed before he could be peaceful with the creationist explanation for the origin of life. He calls himself a “pragmatic scientist,” and believes he is uniquely qualified to teach creation because “I understand the other side of the issue,” he said.

He began teaching science in 1982 at the request of a homeschooling mother and ended up developing creation workshops, which he taught as side work. His workshops even passed muster with Ken Ham, Answers in Genesis’s executive director, who began contracting Liebert to lead workshops and seminars on their behalf in 1994. That year, Ciba-Geigy cut back on their workforce, and Liebert took early retirement so he could teach creation as his primary occupation.

REVISED: The Charlie and Terry now, in 2018 are members of Redeemer OPC in Carlisle Pennsylvania. His ministry has excelled as well, with Charlie teaching his materials around the country. He has spoken throughout the Carolinas and around the Southeast.  For ten years, 1995-2005, Charlie produced his television show, “Creation Foundation Explanation,” on local cable access in Greensboro.

“The thing that is most frustrating as a creation scientist is the outright lying the evolutionists do to convince the public,” said Charlie. “It’s bad science, and it’s lies.”

Charlie Liebert’s Testimony Shared Today in Carlisle, Pennsylvania at CBMC Outreach.

At thirty-five, in Greensboro, NC, I became a Christian. My transformation from Atheism was so sudden, surprising, and dramatic I had to unlearn and relearn almost everything I believed. All my presuppositions changed in a moment. Everything I thought I knew about humankind and God was wrong! The most challenging intellectual struggle I faced was giving up the theory of Evolution. I had been taught Evolution as fact and accepted it because I thought, “My teachers wouldn’t lie to me.” Besides, it made a lot of sense the way it was presented. I knew now that Genesis and the Bible did not fit with what I’d learned in my science classes. As a new believer, I was confronted with the biblical truth of the Genesis account of Creation in direct opposition to the Evolution I loved. It became clear there was no evolution in the first chapters of Genesis.

An intense intellectual conflict developed in my mind. If God created in six literal days, then Evolution could not be true! For the first time, I looked on the other side of the question. “Where did I come from? Why am I here? Where am I going?” I read all the books I could find about Biblical Creation: Genesis Flood, The Lie, Scientific Creationism, and many more. It took three years for me to evolve from an Atheistic Evolutionist into a Young Earth Creationist (YEC), passing through day-age, gap theory, and Old Earth. God’s Word and science fit together! God created in six literal days!

This newfound confidence in Scripture spurred me on to study more and more Christian Apologetics. I wanted to be able to explain to unbelievers why Christianity was true. By my fifth year as a Christian, I developed a keen understanding of Biblical Creation, but I grew less inclined to witness as again and again; I confronted questions from unbelievers I couldn’t answer. All those other questions from non-Christians I encountered made me stumble more and more until I began avoiding witnessing for Christ.  I tackle this fear of responding to these questions with the personal evangelism strategy in my first book “Always Be Ready to Give an Answer,” Jesus often did not answer questions but responded with questions to uncover their presuppositions.  This questioning strategy allows you to determine a person’s willingness to hear the Gospel by measuring their spiritual temperature as cold, lukewarm or hot. Then, you can share the Gospel with your testimony, and you still haven’t answered the original question. You intentionally get to the Gospel first after you’ve assessed their receptiveness to the Gospel.

My ministry grew as I taught Biblical Creation to home-school support groups, churches, and Christian schools. I even worked for Answers in Genesis for a short time. My ministry Web page (http://www.sixdaycreation.com) included the ability of visitors to ask questions for which I wrote answers and published them in my second book, “ANSWERS For: “The Hope That Is In You.”

Three Books: 1) “Always Be Ready to Give an Answer!  A Former Atheist’s Personal Christian Evangelism Plan.”  2) ANSWERS For “The Hope That Is in You.  Direct, Simple Answers to the World’s “Hard” Questions” 3) “Without 3 Miracles Darwin’s Dead!  Science Proves Atheistic Evolution is IMPOSSIBLE.”  Available at http://www.sixdaycreation.com

Atheism is Illogical Faith in NOTHING. Christianity is Faith in Jesus Christ.

Newsflash:  My efforts to raise $6,000 for marketing “Without 3 Miracles Darwin’s Dead!” ends today.  See the results at https://igg.me/at/W3MDD

The question of moral absolutes is a source of contrast between Atheism and Christianity. On morality, Atheists say: “Atheism does not lead inevitably to any particular moral position…”  They insist on a relative view of morals.  For example, “What’s right in one circumstance is wrong in another.” OR “Abortion is desirable in some circumstances,” OR “The taking of a human life can be justified if it serves a useful purpose.”  Relativistic morality is a hallmark of Atheism. That Atheist then declares unequivocally, ” There is no God.” That is an absolute statement. It implies personal omniscience or infinite knowledge.  So now we come to the Atheist’s problem: morals are relative, but declaration “there is no God” is absolute. This relativism and absolute conflict are a contradiction of the highest order. You can’t have it both ways! As Mr. Spock would say, “That’s illogical!” Or Data, the android in Star Trek, would say, “That doesn’t compute!” Atheism is a unresolvable contradiction and defies logic.

Here’s a conversation with an atheist.

Charlie: “Are there moral absolutes in the universe like the Ten Commandments?”

Atheist: “Of course not. All moral judgments are dependent on society’s conditions.”

Charlie: “Is there a God?”

Atheist: “No! I say that with certainty, absolutely not!”

Charlie: “So when it comes to morality, there are no absolutes, but you make the absolute statement ‘There is no God.’ You can’t have it both ways: absolute and relative. Atheism is a contradiction in the highest order. If you are going to be consistent with your logic, the best an Atheist can be is Agnostic!  Atheism itself is a logical contradiction!”

Wow. That usually gets a strong reaction, occasionally with anger. The logical flaw in the Atheist worldview has been found out, and they don’t like it. Because they know there is no way to explain or justify it, their only recourse is to create a smokescreen.

Here are some questions I ask atheists to provoke them to think about their worldview.

  • If there is no God, then why does it matter to you if anyone believes in Jesus?
  • Why does my belief in Jesus distress you so much?
  • Don’t I have the freedom to believe what I want to?
  • Why does it make you so angry I believe in God?
  • If he doesn’t exist, why does it matter?
  • If there is no God what’s your point?

One more challenge: “In the history of the Christian church, many rulers, philosophers, kings, etc. have tried to destroy Christianity. They have even, at times, declared it dead. Why, after many centuries, haven’t they succeeded?”  In history, the more persecution of Christian believers, the more rapidly the church has grown. Why is this? The logical explanation is Christianity is true. The more some try to destroy it; the more God preserves it. If Christianity is not true, then there is no point in trying to eradicate it. Leave it alone; it should just go out of fashion and disappear.

Charlie is author of “Always Be Ready to Give an Answer!  A Former Atheist’s Personal Christian Evangelism Plan.” which develops a personal evangelism strategy that gets to the Gospel every time you witness.  His second book ANSWERS For “The Hope That Is in You.  Direct, Simple Answers to the World’s “Hard” Questions” answers more than 100 questions skeptics use to try to stump Christians. Both at http://yourchristiananswers.com  Charlie’s third book, “Without 3 Miracles Darwin’s Dead!  Science Proves Atheistic Evolution is IMPOSSIBLE” challenges Evolution’s believability, because it flagrantly violates three scientific laws, the 1st and 2nd Laws of Thermodynamics and Biogenesis.   To break a scientific law, you need a miracle, and Atheistic Evolution cannot allow any.  Available at http://www.w3mdarwinsdead.com

Can you help me attack belief in EVOLUTION?

On Wednesday, September 6, I announced my campaign to promote my newest book “Without 3 Miracles Darwin’s Dead!”  It challenges Evolution at its core, SCIENCE. It’s published and ready for market but to promote the book I need $6,000 for marketing.  Because I’m retired, I’ve decided to crowdfund to raise this money.  This book has the potential to change many minds about the viability of Evolution because “Science Proves Atheistic Evolution is IMPOSSIBLE!”  In this book, I expose Evolution’s scientific impossibility because it violates three scientific laws to succeed; the First and Second laws of Thermodynamics and the Law of Biogenesis.  Help me attack the belief in Evolution by joining my campaign.  My campaign starts September 15, but I’m looking for some friends to commit to making a contribution of $200 or more on the start date of 9/15 and add their name as part of my campaign team.  You’ll get a hard copy of the book as soon I get your confirmation.  The only other thing you will be asked to do is encourage others to contribute.  Will you help me by becoming a W3MDD Campaign Team Member? Say YES by Email to charlie@sixdaycreation.com

“Without 3 Miracles Darwin’s Dead!” has the potential to change many minds about the viability of Evolution because as the subtitle says “Science Proves Atheistic Evolution is IMPOSSIBLE!”  I’ll expose Evolution’s scientific impossibility because it violates three scientific laws; the First and Second laws of Thermodynamics and the Law of Biogenesis.   For Evolution to break scientific laws, you need miracles, and Atheistic Evolution cannot allow any, much less THREE!  I call these three miracles: Magic, Frankenstein, and Uphill Molasses.  Magic is the appearance of something from nothing, a violation of the First Law.  Frankenstein is the generation of life from non-living chemicals which violates Biogenesis Law which says: “life ONLY comes from life and ONLY life of the same kind.  The 2nd Law states that the Universe is irreversibly running down.  Evolution is consistently gaining complexity in conflict with this law.  It’s like molasses running uphill against gravity.  I’m ready to present these arguments that destroy Evolution, but I need help to start marketing.  Will you help me?  After the campaign begins, September 15, I’m offering incentives for contributions over $25.  At $25 you receive a downloadable copy of the e-book.  At $50 you get a copy of the softcover edition and at $150 a hardback copy.  A $500 contribution will get you soft cover copies of all three of my published books, and at $1000 you receive hardback copies of all three books.  In bearing testimony for Christ, through my web page, and in my role as a seminar and workshop leader and as a teacher I’m often asked: “Do you believe in Evolution?” I answer: “No I don’t!” Then I get responses like: “Why not, it’s proven by science?” OR “The evidence for it is overwhelming!” OR “Only ignorant or closed-minded fundamentalists don’t believe it!”  I even get that kind of reaction from some who call themselves Christians.

Worldviews and the Uniqueness of Christianity PART 2.

This BLOG is from Chapter 4 “The Uniqueness of Christianity” of:Always Be Ready to Give an Answer!” Last week we saw the three different views of Mankind’s position in this world: 1) God’s not relevant, and death is final. 2) Non-Christian religions escape death by human efforts, and 3) Christianity, God rescues man from death. All three worldviews answer the same question: “What happens to us when we die?” Christianity differs from all other worldviews and religions in a stark way that all humanity is helpless and hopeless in defeating death. All are condemned to Hell by both their nature and action.

The History.

God placed Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden with the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil to test their love and obedience. By not eating from the tree, they could continually demonstrate love for God as an act of their will. They had the choice to not love by disobedience, so they had true free will. God warned them that eating from the tree would have the consequence of death. When Adam ate from the tree, he brought the curse of sin and death to all of the creation. Adam’s spirit died immediately. His body entered the process of dying, but it would be some time before he would physically die. It’s as if God said: “You will begin to die (spiritual death), you will continue to die (aging), and eventually, you will be dead (physical death).

The Dilemma.

The entrance of sin meant all children of Adam and Eve are guilty of this rebellion by both birth and personal practice. We are born sinners, and we sin by intent daily. All mankind is dead in their spirit and will not seek a relationship with God, hating God by nature and practice (Read Romans 1–3). The situation is entirely hopeless. All are destined to Hell, and no one can do nothing to stop their death. If this were the end of the story, Christianity would be the most hopeless religion because there would be no way to escape death. We are all lost, condemned and hopeless, so God alone can provide a solution.

The Good News.

Now, the good news of the gospel! God himself came to earth as Jesus, the perfect man, also called the second Adam. He was not born by the natural process but rather miraculously conceived in the virgin’s womb. As a result is not a son of Adam, and does not inherit the sin nature. His spirit is alive. Jesus lived a perfect life obeying all God’s law and then sacrificed himself to pay the sin debt of some of mankind. Since people will not seek God because they are dead, God himself has to awaken them, to hear the call to receive the payment of their debt made by Jesus. It’s called substitutionary atonement. One life traded for another to satisfy justice. Lazarus in the grave is a great example! See my earlier blog: http://wp.me/p6OUE6-1y

LESSON: Christianity is unique in world religions because it alone teaches man is dead and will not seek God. God alone can provide escape from death and only through Jesus Christ
