In this topic we will be exposed to the reality of a non common shared worldview society and we will be trained to an apologetic tool / mechanism namely “Presuppositional Apologetics”.
Why is this topic important:
In the secular age and modernity era the traditional way of evangelism has to be re-approached. Our methods and ways for centuries presupposed a shared canvas between the church and the society.
Sharing the ‘good news’ was simply a restatement of truths, beliefs and values that were trying to poke the hearer and remind them the universal admittedly and recognised views. In the western society of our times evangelism has to be done in a persuasive way.
What we are going to do:
In this topic we will be exposed to the reality of a non common shared worldview society and we will be trained to an apologetic tool/mechanism namely “Presuppositional Apologetics”.
We will address the main objections and roadblocks to Christianity in theory and in application as the cadre will be visiting a church plant in one of the main secular neighbourhoods of Athens.
Finally, we will learn how to build plausibility structures for each one’s specific context.
By the end of this course, participants will be able to identify various worldviews and know how to approach in a persuasive way.
Participants will be highly motivated to explore ways to understand their own missional context and share the gospel in the vernacular.
Participants will be encouraged to see the christian message presented in a decent dialogue and done with a persuasive way within the front lines of our secular age.
