While We Were Looking for New Ways to Present the Gospel – The World Changed

This writer enjoyed a recent visit to the Sothern Evangelical Seminary’s 25th Annual National Conference on Christian Apolegetics in Charlotte, North Carolina. The event was headed by my former pastor Dr. Richard Land who is now the President of SES. Besides being one of the most profound influences in my life, Dr. Land is a friend and a caring Christian brother.


 

General Michael Flynn defense fund Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn. 


Almost 70 of America’s best theologians and apolegetics spoke at the beautiful Calvary Church Campus in Charlotte. We heard only a few of them before taking a tour of the new campus of SES and the Billy Graham Library.

Among those who stirred our hearts were Ravi Zacharias, Josh McDowell, Frank Turek and Chip Ingram.

While much of what was spoken was powerful and useful it was Frank Turek who made a statement that hung on my mind for several days.

Turek said that while he was considering new ways to proclaim and defend the gospel to the “Millennials” and the “Z” generation he realized that the world has completely changed.

Not only has the church been slipping into apostasy across the globe, the new mega churches and the new theology has weakened the church even as the wickedness in our world has strengthened exponentially.

It is not that the apolegetics of the past or the future that is irrelevant, but rather it is a matter of a new world where no one is listening and even worse, no one seriously cares.

The proof of the gospel that apolegetics deals with does not matter to a sin sick and dying world. Apolegetics is still quite meaningful and effective but the audience is diminishing for all the obvious reasons.

So what are the obvious reasons and more importantly what is the alternative?

The number one reason the proofs of the gospel are ignored today is that people do not understand the unchanging nature of God. The world is in a constant state of flux. People think that thought is supposed to “evolve” even as they think we are evolving on a physical plane, which of course we are not.

But man never changes; the hearts of men remain the same from the first day to the last. (Gen 6: 5)

God also never changes – he has declared what he expects of mankind and it will never change. (Nu 23: 19)

The alternative to a new apologetic thrust is a necessity born out of time, that is, time is running out for what we now call the age or the dispensation of grace.

All that is left is the fulfillment of prophecy.

Pre-millennial prophecies have only a few aspects yet to come. Almost all pre-millennial prophecies are converging in this generation.

Does prophecy replace theology or apolegetics? In fact prophecy replaces everything in our world including the history of man as we know it.

The fact that prophecies replace most things also means that the God will raise up new kinds of messengers. They will come with the spirit and power of the old prophets – and much more.

The Billy Graham kinds of ministries will give way to the two witnesses described in Revelation chapter eleven.

In a piece entitled “Graham is Gone – Are the Two Power Prophets Next?” describes how the lines that are being drawn today in all areas of human endeavor and it serves to bolster the fulfillment of prophetic events. Politics, education, morality and every area of the social spectrum is either on one side or the other. This is what makes the world ripe.

Those who neglect to teach the church and warn the world of last days events are in fact failing. Being busy with business as usual is not what the church needs today.

“But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” (Mt 24: 37-39)
