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.”

Gaining God’s Wisdom to Educate 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 children.  I show the Biblical Mandate to educate your children and explain ALL the educational options available in the US today.  This week and next I show parents how to gain wisdom to teach their children.

Your wisdom source, as a Christian parent, is the Bible, so careful study to increase your knowledge of the nature and character of God is essential for you to teach your children.  In many verses gainingwisdom is a cycle of teaching and learning. It requires effort! Romans 12:1-2 identifies this as renewing the mind.

I appeal to you, therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. 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.

Your thinking and behavior will change by applying the knowledge of God in your life.  This transformation gradually changes us more and more into the image of Christ.  It is by building a foundation of our spiritual depth that we can better instruct our children.  In the verses below, you will see our effort combined with faith in the Scriptures brings us greater wisdom.  We can only teach what we know and understand so the more we are aware of and understand God the greater our ability to impart wisdom to our children. Remember it’s not just what we teach it’s more how we live.  Our actions speak louder than our words so we MUST let the truth transform us.  Do not say to your children: “Do what I say not what I do!”  Say to them: “Watch me and do what I do!”  Then we will do as Paul tells Timothy:

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”  2 Timothy 2:15

It may be that your children will exceed your learning and understanding.   As their parents. God the Holy Spirit will teach them, and He knows so much more than any one of us.  A living example has far stronger influence than teaching.  If God gave you children, then he also gave you responsibility for their instruction.  When you work in your family remember this saying about sowing and reaping:

Sow, that people have rights and you will likely foment a revolution, however sow,that people have responsibilities and the foundation for reformation is laid, but only if the responsibilities are to God our creator. If God is not the creator of everything, He cannot be Sovereign. And if He is not Sovereign, He cannot be our Savior.

More on this in next weeks blog.

Salvation Illustrated by Lazarus’ Raising!

Jesus raising of Lazarus from the dead in John 11:17-44 illustrates how God accomplishessalvation. Humankind is dead in their sin and unable to save themselves from God’s righteous judgment and condemnation. God saves men by first making them alive to hear by the work of the Holy Spirit. Then they respond to the gospel communicated to them by another person.

Lazarus is dead four days. His body has begun to decay. It stinks!  His body physically can’t come back to life by any natural process.All people are dead in their sin and unable to hear! Dead men cannot hear or be awakened.  They are DEAD!!

Jesus comes to the grave and calls Lazarus by name. But his body can’t live! How can he respond? His body is rotting and stinking. He’s been dead four days! So, the power of God comes on his body and restores it to a condition of life.  He can now hear Christ’s call. All the death and decay is removed by God’s power. His bodyis in a state of life with awareness. The Holy Spirit has brought life, consciousness and open ears.  Jesus spoke about open ears to hear three times in the parable of the sower. “He who has ears to hear, let him hear …”  God made Lazarus’ body alive.  He is aware of his surroundings, and his ears are open to hearing the call of Jesus.

Thus the first action in salvation is God preparing a person, who is dead and making them alive so they can hear the gospel. God alone can do this. Dead men, in their sin, cannot respond to a gospel call without God acting first.  That is why we must always pray for God to move before we witness to Christ’s transforming power. Dead men cannot, will not and do not hear us!  God works first!

Lazarus is now alive and aware, lying on the cold gravestone, and hears Christ’s call.  He knows he is lying in the grave, so the first thing he does in response is get up and walk out. It’s man’s responsibility to respond to the gospel, but God uses human agencyto complete this process.  Men bring the gospel to other men!

Now he walks outof the grave still encumbered by grave wrappings, which represent his sin and past life. Although his sin debt, the penalty of death has been fully paidby Jesus, his lifestyle, habits, etc. are all still with him. Others must help him shed those things.  Unwrapping him is a picture of discipleship.  One of the best ways to disciple new believers is the “Operation Timothy” program available from members of CBMC (Christian Business Men’s Connection). Interested? charlie@sixdaycreation.com.

If you are a Christian then at a moment in time, after you were physically born, you were born again when God made you spiritually alive and gave you ears to hear.  Then, you listened to the Gospel call and responded sealing your salvation in Christ.

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.”

My Testimony; why clear and logical thinking Atheists should become Agnostic.

During March I’ve given my testimony at three CBMC (Christian Business Men’s Connection) outreach events in Carlisle, York, and Chambersburg and I’ll be doing it again in Gettysburg next Wednesday at Dunlap’s Restaurant. I became a Christian at 35, converted from “hardcore” Atheism.  As I’ve spoken each time, during the Q&A, a common reaction has been: “Explain WHY you said Atheism is an illogical and impossible philosophy.  My Answer: No one can say:  “There is no God.” because a person must be omniscience to make that statement and NO man is!

To the Atheist: “Be honest with yourself.  Your belief that “there is NO God” is a FAITH statement based on your BELIEFS, not on any proof!” The absence of evidence is NOT proof.  Besides, proving that negative is impossible.  For example, I say: “There are no unicorns alive on Earth today.”  Can I prove that? NO!  I’d have to be able to see every square foot of the planet at the same time to be sure, and even then I might miss it because of the animals camouflage.  I’d need Planetary Omniscience to know for sure there are no Unicorns.

Since no man has perfect, absolute knowledge, the best an Atheist can say is “I don’t and can’t know if there is a God.”  He can’t say for certain “there is no God” because he’s not omniscient!  When the Atheist realizes this untenable, logical dilemma, he should flee to Agnosticism. Both Atheism and Agnosticism deny God—the Atheist with absurd certainty and the Agnostic with skeptical, uncertainty.  The Agnostic’s view is a confession of ignorance NOT knowledge or truth.  In the Bible, Romans addresses this as “suppressing the truth.”  Agnostics do not deny the existence of God but hold that one cannot know for sure whether or not God exists.

Ask the Agnostic: “Is there a God?” They typically reply, “I don’t know if there is a God or not, but if there is, he is not relevant to my life.” Most would probably add, “no one can know for sure if there is or is not a God, but it doesn’t matter.”

Nineteenth-century British scientist Thomas H. Huxley created the term “Agnostic” for himself in 1870.  He believed that only material phenomena were objects of exact knowledge. He made up the word from the prefix a, meaning “without, not,” as in amoral, and the noun Gnostic. Gnostic is related to the Greek word gnōsis, “knowledge,” which was used by early Christian writers to mean “higher, esoteric knowledge of spiritual things.”  In coining the term Agnostic, Huxley was considering a group of his fellow intellectuals—“ists,” as he called them—who eagerly embraced various doctrines or theories like Evolution that explained the Universe without God.

Astronomer Carl Sagan, a self-identified Agnostic, said, “The Cosmos is all that is or was or ever will be. Our feeblest contemplations of the Cosmos stir us. There is a tingling in the spine, a catch in the voice, a faint sensation, as if a distant memory, of falling from a height. We know we are approaching the greatest of mysteries.”

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.”
