Audio: Why I Am a Christian- Understanding Truth by Brett Kunkle

A few years ago I had the pleasure of sitting in the audience at Mt. Airy Bible Church when Brett Kunkle gave this talk entitled, "Why I Am a Christian."  This is one of the best talks I have heard on the nature of truth and how we can know it.

In this talk, Brett discusses:
  • Good reasons and bad reasons to believe something
  • How the gospel is shared in most churches
  • What is the message of Jesus Christ?
  • What does it mean to say that Christianity is true?
  • Objective truth vs. subjective truth
  • The relationship between truth and reality
  • Central truths vs. non-central truths
  • Four questions to answer when making a case for the truth of Christianity
Q and A Questions Answered
  • Do you believe it falls on the church or parents to teach children apologetics?
  • How can you best witness to Mormons?
  • How can you best witness to someone who doesn't believe God cares about every area of their life?
  • How can you best witness to someone who doesn't care or just wants you to leave them alone?
  • How can you graciously and effectively response to the accusation of intolerance?
I encourage you to take the time to listen to this excellent talk.

For those interested in listening to the other talks given at this conference, go here.

Courage and Godspeed,
