- IS THE BIBLE “INERRANT”?
- How do we know the Old Testament stories are true?
- Why isn’t there any evidence for the exodus from Egypt?
- What about all contradictions in the Bible?
- How much archaeological evidence do we have, especially in the O.T.?
- What about all those proven errors in the N.T. manuscripts?
- What about the so-called facts that the N.T. got wrong?
What Is “Apologetics for Humans”?
How can we persuasively engage today’s culture with the Gospel? What works and what doesn’t? Isn’t it sufficient to quote scripture and simply present the Gospel? Since only God can save, what reason do we have to study apologetics?
Join us Thursday evening at Cottonwood as we tackle these questions and more.
THIS SUNDAY, 4:00-5:30, at Cottonwood
🔥 Today’s Hottest Issue? 🔥
Join us this Sunday afternoon as we tackle what is perhaps today’s most contentious issue. Christians are attacked and ridiculed for being “radical”, hateful, intolerant, homophobic, transphobic, bigoted and hypocritical.
What is the true Biblical view on this issue and how should we respond when questioned or criticized?
Join us as we consider the core issues and then develop a practical strategy for handling questions from our kids as well as ridicule in the public square.
We will consider multiple points of view, but the ultimate question is: WWJD?
Sunday, Oct 21
4:00 to 5:30 (during AWANA)
Cottonwood Creek Church, Allen
Week four topic – How can we respond when someone questions God — or even the existence of God — because of all the evil and suffering in the world. This is our second week on this seemingly difficult question/objection. Please download our class notes file to review the material we’ve covered in the first three weeks.

Is There a Conflict?
Is the Great Commission in harmony or in conflict with the command to always be prepared to share the reasons for your faith?
Mark your Calendar
What’s the best way to respond when non-believers question or criticize Christianity?
How can we prepare our kids for the attacks of the “new atheists”?
Why is equipping more important than teaching?
Why is this vitally important to discipleship and the Great Commission?
Join us as we equip ourselves with the skills and knowledge needed to respond effectively when our faith is questioned. Classes will employ short video clips and interactive discussion time. Lecture, per se, will be minimal.
This class is offered because Christianity is the best explanation for the way the world is, and is the world view for which there is the greatest evidence. We all have doubts at times, but evidence defeats doubt and the evidence is on our side.

In addition to our regular Reasonable Faith chapter meetings, the following new free class is now open for enrollment at Cottonwood Creek Church, Allen campus. Cottonwood’s web site is ‘cottonwoodcreek.org”. (If you have any problem enrolling, please send an email to “firstname.lastname@example.org”.)
“Truth Talks” class for parents. (Students, grandparents and others are always welcome also.) This seven week class will meet from 4:00 until 5:30, each Sunday for seven weeks. This is intentionally the same timing as AWANA. The class will begin Sunday, September 23 and the last class will be Sunday, November 4. The purpose of this series is to help equip parents to intentionally prepare their kids for the tsunami of anti-Christian propaganda that floods our culture 24/7.
How can we and should we respond when a professor or fellow student or blogger or meme questions, criticizes or ridicules Christianity?
Christianity is the world view for which there is the greatest evidence—evidence beyond a reasonable doubt. But, today’s culture seems to be attacking Christianity from every direction. And when you only hear the anti-Christian point of view 95% of the time, or more, the arguments can create some serious questions—sometimes even a crisis of doubt.
When asked, ‘Why are you a Christian’, the most common replies include:
- Because my family is Christian
- Because Jesus loves me and the Bible tells me so
- Because it just feels right and it helps me in my life
- Because I asked Jesus into my heart and I was baptized
Those are all good answers. But when the enemy attacks, in force, as in the “God’s Not Dead” movies, we are commanded to be always ready to defend our faith with evidence and with love and grace. That is easier said than done.
As the Christian community has arisen to meet this challenge, there are now more resources, classes, and support groups than most people can imagine. Cottonwood’s “Truth Talks” events are dedicated to providing the knowledge and skills we all need to defend our faith in today’s world.
There is no cost or required book for this class.
