TEACHING TOPICS

(POWERPOINT PRESENTATIONS)

 



Evidence for the Bible

The Bible is under assault today from just about every conceivable angle. As a result, many people have concluded that:

•  "The Bible was written by men and is therefore untrustworthy."
•  "There's no good evidence to support the Bible's claims."
•  "The Bible is just ancient fiction and folklore."
•  "The Bible is out-of-sync with scientific discoveries."
•  "The Bible has been tampered with and changed down through the centuries."

In this visual presentation that Charlie Campbell has given in churches all over North America, he answers these types of objections and criticisms of the Bible as he lays out seven lines of evidence for the reliability of the Bible—fulfilled prophecies, archaeological discoveries, the Bible's scientific accuracy and foresight, manuscript evidence, the persecution the early followers of Jesus were willing to endure, and more!


Evidence for God

In this presentation, Charlie Campbell builds a compelling case for God's existence by laying out five lines of evidence for God: the Cosmos, the Conditions for Life (the fine-tuning of the universe), the Complexity of Life, the Canon of Scripture, and the life of Jesus Christ. This teaching will encourage and equip Christians, but it is also a great presentation to invite non Christians to.


The Stones Cry Out—Archaeological Discoveries that Verify the Bible

Many critics of the Bible believe the Scriptures are man-made fabrications. But for the past two centuries archaeologists have been verifying the exact truthfulness of the Bible's detailed records of various events, customs, persons, cities, nations, and geographical locations. In this PowerPoint presentation Charlie Campbell discusses a dozen or more fascinating discoveries—both old and new—that have overturned critics' attacks on the Bible and helped to confirm the historical reliability of the Scriptures.


Answering Atheists' Objections to Jesus

When it comes to Jesus, atheists and other critics of the Bible commonly say:

•  "There's no credible evidence Jesus existed"
•  "The authors of the Gospels stole their ideas for Jesus’ life from other ancient religions"
•  "The earliest Christians didn’t believe Jesus was God"
•  "The Gospels contradict one another"
•  "There are scientific errors in the Gospels"
•  "The “Gospel of Thomas” and the “Gospel of Judas” give us a more accurate understanding of who Jesus was"
•  "Accounts of Jesus’ miracles are fabrications"

In this presentation, Charlie Campbell responds to each one of these challenges and equips Christians to contend for the truth that Jesus really did exist and the Gospels are trustworthy accounts of His life.


NEW! The Bible's Amazing Scientific Accuracy and Foresight

In this presentation, Charlie looks at several passages in the Bible where the Biblical writers revealed amazing facts about the Earth and the universe long before their discovery by scientists—often by three or four thousand years. That the Biblical writers did this is just astounding when one considers the fact that these men wrote the books of the Bible thousands of years before the invention of telescopes, satellites, deep-diving submarines, and all the other technology that finally allowed mankind to verify that these revelations in the Scriptures were correct. This is compelling evidence that the Biblical writers were guided along in what they wrote by the God they claimed to be revealing to us in the pages of Scripture.


Homosexuality: Answering Objections to the Biblical View

In this presentation, Charlie lovingly responds to the most challenging and popular objections, criticisms and questions people are raising about the Bible's teaching on homosexuality. Some of those objections include:

• “Homosexuals were born that way. How can you say it's wrong to fulfill desires they were born with?”
•  “Jesus never said a word about homosexual activity. If it was sinful or important to Him, He surely would have addressed it.”
•  “What two consenting adults do is their business. They’re not hurting anybody. And Jesus said not to judge.”
•  “You Christians ignore Old Testament laws forbidding the eating of shellfish and pork. Why do you inconsistently cling to its stance on homosexuality?” 
•  “When Paul wrote about homosexuality, he was referring to pagan idol worshippers and rapists, not two persons committed to one another in a loving monogamous relationship.”

FAQs regarding this presentation:

– Have you had anyone get up and angrily disrupt the service? Never.
– Do people protest out in front of the church? Never.
– Does the presentation have any PG-13 images? None, not even the holding of hands.
– Is there graphic talk about sexual activity, sexual disease? None.
– Do you recommend high schoolers sitting in the main sanctuary to hear? Yes, definitely.
– What's the feedback been like for this talk? Overwhelming gratitude by pastors and congregations for help with this challenging issue.


If God is Loving, Why Does He Allow Evil and Suffering?

Daily we are confronted with headlines about wars, famines, earthquakes, disease, tsunamis, terrorists, refugees, and death. If God existed, surely He would not allow these things to exist or to continue...or would He? And if so, why? Couldn’t He prevent some of these things? Couldn’t He have made a better world? In this presentation, Charlie Campbell answers these and several other tough theological questions related to evil and suffering. For those who have wrestled with these questions, this presentation is comforting and instructive; but it also equips Christians to be better prepared to answer atheists who think evil and suffering disprove the existence of a loving God.


Faith Strengthening Solutions to Alleged Contradictions in the Gospels

Multitudes of people believe the New Testament Gospels are "full of contradictions" and therefore cannot be trustworthy accounts of Jesus' life. In this presentation, Charlie Campbell tackles this commonly held belief by examining seven of the most popular "contradictions" in the Gospels and providing the solutions to the apparent discrepancies.


Answers to the Tough Questions about Hell

Skeptics and critics of the Christian faith have raised some tough questions regarding the Bible’s teaching on Hell, questions like:

•  How can a God of love send anybody to Hell?
•  Why would God have created us, if He knew in advance so many people would end up in Hell?
•  Does God send people to Hell if they’ve never heard of Jesus?
•  Isn’t an everlasting existence in Hell an unjust punishment for the sins done in a finite life?
•  Isn’t it unjust that God would give out the same punishment [He doesn't.] to everybody who ends up in Hell?

In this teaching, Charlie Campbell answers these questions and the misconceptions behind them with solid biblical answers.


Answering the Cults' Attacks on Jesus' Deity

Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, Muslims, and others say Jesus was merely a human prophet, an angel, or some other created being. And they claim to have support for their views in the Bible. In this teaching, Charlie Campbell examines the most popular proof texts used to deny the deity of Christ, answers the misunderstandings and mistaken interpretations, and builds a clear, compelling case from the Bible that Jesus truly was and is “our great God and Savior” (Titus 2:13).


The Historical Case for Jesus' Resurrection

Critics have leveled numerous attacks against the resurrection of Christ, supplying a myriad of theories to explain the empty tomb. In this presentation Charlie Campbell builds a case for the resurrection relying on five lines of evidence (easily remembered with the acronym R.I.S.E.N.) all the while responding to claims and questions from skeptics and critics.


Are Adherents to the World's Religions Worshipping the Same God?

According to a Religious Landscape Survey, 57 percent of Evangelical Christians in America agreed with this statement: "Many religions can lead to eternal life.” A Barna poll found that 40% of Americans believe the following statement to be true: “When Christians, Jews, Buddhists, and others pray to their god, all of those individuals are actually praying to the same god, but simply using different names for that deity.”

In this presentation, Charlie demonstrates from the Bible that this view is incorrect. But he doesn't stop there. He answers a plethora of questions that skeptics and non-Christians raise regarding the Bible's teaching on this issue, including:

•  What about people who have never heard of Jesus, will they go to Hell?
•  How can non-Christians be condemned if they never had access to a Bible?


Understanding & Ministering to Muslims

Islam is one of the fastest growing religions in the world today. Consider these staggering statistics: In 1982, there were 450 million Muslims in the world, today there are approximately 1.6 billion! That means that 1 out of every 5 people alive today is a Muslim. In this presentation, Charlie Campbell discusses the origin of Islam, the growth of Islam, some of its basic teachings (contrasted alongside the Bible), reasons the Quran should be rejected as authoritative Scripture, and closes with some exhortations and suggestions on lovingly sharing the truth with Muslims.


Understanding & Ministering to Mormons

Mormonism is growing quickly. We need to equip the saints to stand against their erroneous doctrines. In this presentation, Charlie Campbell discusses the origin of the Mormon Church, four false teachings of the Mormon Church, six evidences that the Book of Mormon cannot be the Word of God as it claims, and a step by step strategy for sharing the truth in love with Mormons.


Understanding & Ministering to Jehovah's Witnesses

In this teaching, Charlie Campbell discusses the origin of the Jehovah's Witness organization, seven unbiblical teachings of the Watchtower Society (and the Biblical truth regarding each of them), then some Biblical principles and practical wisdom on sharing the truth in love with Jehovah's Witnesses.


Catholicism: A Comparison of Evangelical and Catholic Beliefs

In this presentation, Charlie Campbell discusses...

•  The origin of the Catholic Church (e.g., was Peter the first Pope?)
•  Beliefs that Evangelicals and Catholics have in common
•  Doctrines Evangelicals and Catholics disagree upon (e.g., purgatory, praying to the saints, the apocrypha, etc.) and why
•  Witnessing to Catholic friends and family

Pastors: If you're wondering whether this is a topic worth addressing at your church, consider this: Charlie's DVD on Catholicism is consistently in the top five selling resources in our online store. This tells us that evangelical Christians want and need help in this area. Evangelicals have more interaction with Catholics than Muslims, Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons combined, and they want the help understanding Catholic beliefs and how they compare to the Bible.


New Age Spirituality: A Biblical Assessment of 8 New Age Beliefs

Books on New Age spirituality fill the religion section at Barnes and Noble bookstores. What is New Age spirituality? What are its core teachings? How do these teachings hold up in the light of the Bible? What’s the best way to share the truth with someone who holds New Age views? In this presentation, Charlie Campbell answers these questions and more.


Seven Cures for the Fear of Evangelism

Only a small percentage of Christians regularly share their faith. Why? Fear. Fear of rejection, fear of not having answers to common questions, fear of hurting an existing friendship, etc. In this presentation Charlie Campbell reveals that there is hope for even the most timid Christians. The hope stems from the fact that God desires to transform us and has revealed at least seven antidotes for the fear that keeps Christians quiet. If you long to see your church sharing the gospel in the community, this may be just the study they need!


How to Respond to Critics

Nonbelievers and critics of Christianity are well-known for their conversation-ending declarations like:

•  “Everyone knows the Bible has been tampered with down through the centuries."
•  "Evolution has disproved God's existence."
•  "
All religions basically teach the same thing."
•  "
The stories about Jesus were stolen from older, pagan religions."
•  "
It doesn't matter what you believe as long as you're sincere."

Many Christians are caught off guard by these kinds of assertions. Well, that need not be the case. In this teaching, Charlie examines how Jesus dealt with His critics as well as Solomon's instructions in the Book of Proverbs and then lays out a practical strategy for dealing with critics of the Christian faith: Asking them questions! In this teaching, he shares his five favorite questions to ask skeptics.


Evangelism in the Workplace

The people we work with day in and day out often become some of our very best friends, but they can also be the hardest people to talk about the Lord with. Obviously, the boss doesn't want us standing around on company time talking about the Bible and our faith, when we're supposed to be working. So, evangelism in the workplace can be challenging. But thankfully God has not left us in the dark regarding this and in this teaching Charlie Campbell shares nine practical ways for Christians to let their light shine at work. 


The End Times & Beyond: 10 Upcoming Events in Bible Prophecy

Many Christians are confused about the order of upcoming events on the prophetic calendar. In this fascinating presentation, Charlie Campbell gives a clear overview of 10 MAJOR UPCOMING EVENTS in Bible prophecy, events like:

•  the coming of Christ for His people
•  the coming Islamic invasion of Israel
•  the bema seat Judgment
•  the Tribulation
•  the Antichrist
•  the Battle of Armageddon
•  the Second Coming of Christ to the Earth
•  the millennial reign of Christ
•  the new Jerusalem

Note: Charlie holds to a Pretribulational Rapture and Premillennial Second Coming, the same views held by John Walvoord, Norman Geisler, John MacArthur, Warren Wiersbe, Chuck Smith, etc.


The Case for a Pretribulational Rapture

What is the Rapture? Is it Biblical? Is it true that it wasn't taught until the early 1800s? In this teaching, Charlie Campbell answers these questions and others as he builds a strong Biblical case for a pretribulational Rapture.


Preterism: Has the Book of Revelation Already Been Fulfilled?

Preterism is the view that the events spoken about in Matthew 24 and the Book of Revelation have been largely or completely fulfilled in the events leading up to and surrounding the destruction of Jerusalem in A.D. 70.  Preterism (from the Latin word for past) is growing in popularity. Could this view be valid? What did the early church think about these passages (Matt. 24 and the Book of Revelation)? In this teaching, Charlie Campbell examines the preterist position, the verses often cited to support their view, and gives numerous reasons why preterism should be rejected as an incorrect understanding of Bible prophecy.


Wise Decision Making: How to Navigate the Gray Areas

The Bible is clear on lots of things. Fornication, stealing, lying, loving your neighbor, humility, faith in God. We know the will of God in those areas. But what about other areas that aren’t specifically mentioned in the Bible? There are a lot of things that the Bible does not specifically forbid or permit. For example, if somebody invites you over to their house to play poker, should you go? Should Christians gamble at all? Play the Lotto? Dance at nightclubs? Get tattoos? Listen to secular music? Have a beer with dinner? Watch R-rated movies? These things are not specifically addressed in the Bible. So, what’s a Christian to do? Well, as Charlie points out in this teaching, God has given us some little-known guidelines in the Bible to help us make wise decisions in the gray areas.
