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.”

Several of Charlie’s experiences with Christian education, one good reason why and a great example of his saving grace.

Charlie became a Christian in March, and Terry in May,1977. In mid-1978 they moved to Mauldin, near Greenville, SC.   Soon after arriving in Greenville, Terry tried to register our son for second grade in the local public school. On three separate occasions, she was unable to register him. The pastor from Mitchell Road Presbyterian Church, where we were attending, came to visit us the week before school was to begin to encourage us to enroll our children in MRPC’s Christian school. I remember Dr. Thomas Cross saying: “As Christians, you want to bring your covenant children up in the faith and become believers as you are. Christian School will be consistent with everything you teach them at home. Since the public school’s foundation is Humanism, when you put them there, you bring them into the camp of the enemy of Christ for 5 hours a day. Most parents can’t or won’t undo the daily damage done in those schools.” So, began our commitment to educating our children in a Christian school.

After we had been in MRPC for more than a year Terry and I were asked to help start a mission church in nearby Simpsonville. I had been trained and ordained as a Deacon and then as an Elder. Three Elders, John Wheeler, Render Cains and myself were the founding elders of Davenport Road Presbyterian Church. One of my responsibilities was teaching the high school class. One Sunday the lesson was on Jesus teaching about building your house on the rock or the sand from Matthew

Matthew 7:24-27“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”

The lesson included little paper houses and pages with pictures of sand and rock. I thought this was a weak, childish lesson, BUT I taught it faithfully. I even told Terry on the ride home that I thought it was a stupid lesson. Years later back in Greensboro, I met one of the students from that class. He said: “Mr. Liebert do you remember teaching the lesson about the two houses, one built on sand and the other built on rock”. I confirmed I remembered. “Well, that lesson changed my life!” Lesson learned by me! NEVER underestimate God’s ability to use weak vessels to carry out his will and don’t trust your sinful judgment to sell God’s Word short! After more than 40 years as a Christian and an educator Gods’s word is still my guide.

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.

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 journey from Atheistic Evolutionist to Christian Young Earth Creationist.

I grew up in the small town, Amityville on Long Island, NY, with my two sisters, Rosemarie and Joyce. My parents took us to church almost every Sunday. In Sunday school we learned many Bible stories, but I never remember being confronted with the Gospel. At 16 years old I became aware of the hypocrisy of church members. In church one Sunday morning the pastor was droning on about the evil of drinking. I knew that most of the adults sitting around me had been at the Amityville Yacht Club season-opening the night before and had consumed a lot of beer, wine, and liquor. How foolish I thought. “These people don’t believe a word of what’s being said! Hypocrites!” I shut off anything the church had to say and began my descent from Marginal Christianity into Atheism.  In high school and college, he was taught he evolved from pond scum, through apes and he wholeheartedly believed it.  By the time I was 24 and approaching completion of my BS in Chemistry I had become an active, hardcore Atheist.

When I became a Christian in 1977, I faced a severe intellectual dilemma. I had been taught evolution as a fact, yet when I read Genesis I saw, God created the world in six days a relatively short time ago. For three years I studied books by many “recent creationists” and became convinced that recent creation made a lot more sense than old age evolution. I said; “When you look at the science objectively recent Creation is much more viable than Evolution. I evolved from an Old Earth Atheistic Evolutionist to a Young Earth Creationist in about three years.  The most influential books I read were: The Lie by Ken Ham, Scientific Creationism by Dr. Henry Morris, and The Genesis Flood by Morris and Whitcomb. As I studied I came to the conclusions that form the basis of my third book  “Without 3 Miracles Darwin’s Dead!  Science Proves Atheistic Evolution is IMPOSSIBLE.”

  • Evolution is NOT science; it’s a faith statement about the past!
  • Evolution breaks three unbreakable scientific laws, and that’s impossible! Scientific laws CAN”T ever be broken, and still remain laws. If Evolution breaks scientific laws it must fall back to a theory or even just a hypothesis.
  • Evolution’s never been observed in a laboratory or the field. Dr. Richard Dawkins said. “Evolution has been observed. It’s just that it hasn’t been observed when it’s happening.”
  • The missing links between apes and men are ALL still missing,
  • There are some creatures whose behavior, design or amazing complexity Evolution cannot explain. The history of Evolution contains many fraud and I’ll expose two..

There are three irrefutable arguments that show Evolution’s impossible because it violates three scientific laws, the 1st and 2nd Laws of Thermodynamics and the Law of Biogenesis.  I call these three arguments: Magic, Frankenstein, and Uphill Molasses.  Magic is the appearance of something from nothing, so the 1st law is violated.  Frankenstein is life coming from non-living chemicals, so Biogenesis is violated, Uphill molasses is going uphill in a downhill Universe which physics calls Entropy. So the 2nd law is violated.  See the book at http://w3mdarwinsdead.com

Charlie Liebert’s Christian Apologetics Trilogy 1 Personal Evangelism 2 Questions & Answers 3 Evolution Debunked

At thirty-five, in Greensboro, North Carolina, I became a Christian. My conversion is detailed in “Your Personal Testimony” in my first book “Always Be Ready to Give an Answer! ”  My transformation from Atheism was so sudden, surprising, and dramatic that 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 in my 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. I immediately knew that Genesis and the Bible did not fit with what I’d learned science classes. It became very clear that there was no evolution in the first three chapters of Genesis.

An intense intellectual conflict developed in my mind that I had to resolve. 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 questions. “Where did I come from? Why am I here? Where am I going?” I read all the books I could find about creation and the Bible: Genesis Flood, The Lie, Scientific Creationism, and many more. It took three years for me to evolve from ab Atheistic Evolutionist to a Young Earth Creationist (YEC). I passed through day-age, gap theory, and Old Earth to get to YEC. God’s Word and science did fit together! God created in six literal days!  By my fifth year as a Christian, walking with Christ, I developed a deep understanding of Creation and its Biblical base.

This newfound confidence in Scripture spurred me on to study more and more Christian apologetics. I wanted to be able to explain to unbelievers I knew why Christianity was true. As I grew in knowledge I became less inclined to witness as again and again; I was confronted by questions from unbelievers I couldn’t answer. All those questions from the non-Christians I encountered made me stumble more and more until I began avoiding witnessing for Christ.

Living in Greensboro, NC I was teaching Evangelism to a group of Christian Businessmen for CBMC (Christian Business Men’s Connection) when I realized this problem of questions diverting my desire to share Christ was common among believers.  So, I asked: “How did Jesus handle this problem?”  He didn’t answer their questions but answered with another question to drive his listeners to assess the reason for the question.  This principle of “taking one’s spiritual temperature” is the foundation of my first book subtitled  “A Former Atheist’s Personal Christian Evangelism Plan.” Next week I’ll reveal how I came to write the second and third books in my trilogy.
