YOUR GOD Panel: Pagan, Atheist and Christian Students

As apart of the YOUR GOD Sydney-wide mission run by AFES (Australian Fellowship of Evangelical Students) at many University campuses, I’ll be representing the Christian view on a panel of Pagan, Atheist and Christian students.

I am quite excited about it. I myself have been influenced greatly through many apologetic works, and attribute my faith to the way in which God used those works. I feel apologetics is often overlooked or under-valued in churches and Bible-colleges, so I’m excited to be able to have a real and open discussion about faith on campus. I think University is the perfect place for such discussions.

I believe everyone should question their faith and world-view (Christians and atheists alike.) I certainly advocate this for Christians, not because I want them to loose their faith, but because I believe that it will strengthen their faith for the better. A Christian who continues on emotional conviction won’t have any real intellectual understanding of their faith, and emotions only last so long.

If anyone is around in the Western Sydney area, certainly come along. Thursday the 8th of August 2013 at 1PM, UWS Kingswood Campus in room K.1.04.

AFES: Entrusted with the Gospel

If you attend any Australian University, there’s a good chance that there is an AFES (Australian Federation of Evangelical Students) sponsored group hanging around somewhere (UWS has CBM.) A really good event that I want to promote if you are involved with your Uni’s AFES group, or even if you aren’t and want to, is Entrusted with the Gospel.

I’m promoting it partly¬†because¬†I won’t be able to go, but it looks really good and informative, so if you are involved with your AFES group, why not think about it?
