This is for a group of guys in my church as we go over 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.

I thought the following questions might be helpful for other individuals and other small groups to facilitate discussions and learning.  I plan to make more discussion guides as we slowly go over the book.

I am all wired up from evangelizing on the Rose Parade route tonight, its something the folks at my church have been doing for almost 10 years now.  People camp outside and we just set up a table to engage in evangelistic conversation.  Believe it or not there are still people who are willing to stop and listen and hear the Gospel.  We need to pray for those opportunities and present the Gospel clearly and faithfully with both passion and compassion.

Contrary to the theme of the blog, in my evangelism these days I rarely go on apologetics’ rabbit trail when I share the Gospel.  Most of the time I focus on the Gospel being understood by the person I’m talking to.  I am a Presuppositionalist in my apologetics but I think even some within my own camp of apologetics can forget the self-evidencing power of the Gospel.

Tonight I did have someone looking for trouble that came to our evangelism table.  In person, I can tolerate quite a bit of personal attacks on myself; but I have a harder time when someone attack one of my brothers or sisters in the faith who was trying to honestly and humbly share the Gospel to the individual.  Something just irks me.  Most of the time I find that a gentle answer does turn away a lot of wrath but once in a while you have a young hammerhead that just wants to bully Christians.  They assume gentleness is a sign of weakness.  They just love to belittle Christians and show themselves to be morally and intellectually superior than those who are talking to them.  Pharisees are non-denominational and exists in many worldview camps.  So when a Christian brother gets picked on I just have to have to enter the conversation.
