Business Insider has an article titled “Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey forced to apologize for eating Chick-fil-A during Pride Month.”  The reason why Twitter CEO apologized for eating Chic Fil A is because the company’s owner supports biblical Christian value concerning marriage and family.  These days Christians who believe in what the Bible has to say about marriage, sex and family are demonized as the equivalent of Klansmen and Nazis.

As I’m going over this with a group of guys from my church I thought the following questions might be helpful for individuals and small groups to facilitate discussions and learning based upon the apologetics’ book “Ultimate Proof of Creation” by Jason Lisle.  It is a book that teaches Presuppositional apologetics that engages apologetics at the level of worldview.  Cornelius Van Til was instrumental in beginning this form of apologetics and others have developed and applied it.

Chapter 2

Chapter 3

Chapter 4

Chapter 5

Chapter 6

Chapter 7

Chapter 8

The questions in this post will be for chapter 8 of the book.  Each question is followed by page numbers in parenthesis where the answer can be found.
