Worldview Ministries

3 Dec

Sean McDowell (son of Josh McDowell) is a High School teacher with a passion for teens and apologetics.  A gifted writer and speaker, he recognizes that our worldview not only defines who we are, but also dictates who we will become.  His Worldview Ministries website is dedicated to helping young people both develop and defend their worldview and is just the place for teens seeking to equip themselves to answer questions about their faith and lifestyle.

Start out by reading how Sean came to question the Christian faith in which he was raised.  While the article is geared primarily towards parents, his words also reassure teens and young adults who are starting to ask the tough questions about what they believe and why.  Then check out the articles link where Sean answers questions on a range of topics from apologetics, theology, and religion to science, ethics, and youth culture“Is it okay to have doubts” about our faith?  “Is Christianity a copycat religion” composed of various elements of other world faiths?  “Aren’t all religions basically the same?”  Sean carefully addresses a wide variety of issues from the current debate on abortion and same-sex marriage to questions about pornography and smoking pot.  There’s plenty to read, so set aside some time to really explore the site!

Sean also provides a number of resources for student leaders and youth ministers.  Take a moment to visit the curriculum page where you’ll find fully prepared lessons on apologetics and youth culture complete with video clips, power point presentations, and worksheets!  Click on the media link to hear Sean address some of today’s most pressing issues or view Sean’s blog where you can read his latest thoughts or download a podcast so you can listen on the go!

Whatever resources you use, you’re sure to be blessed with a more complete understanding of the Christian life and message!  And remember: your worldview matters.  It will determine who you become.

Josh McDowell Ministry

26 Nov

As an agnostic college student, Josh McDowell was more than willing to respond to the challenge of his Christian friends to defeat their faith on an intellectual level.  After all, if Christianity were false (a worthless religion), it should be easy enough to disprove!  What Josh found, however, was entirely different.  As he investigated the claims of Christ, he discovered that the evidence was deeply in favor of the faith he sought to deny.  The discovery changed his life… and he has been sharing the story ever since.

The Josh McDowell Ministry is centered upon making a case for the Christian faith and Josh and his team have assembled a wealth of resources to help anyone who is interested in actively seeking answers to life’s difficult questions.  From agnostics (those who really just don’t know whether God exists and, if He does, whether He really cares) to confirmed believers, the Josh McDowell Ministry has a little something for everyone!

Not sure about the Christian faith?  Then Answers to Skeptic’s Questions is the link for you!  Josh addresses questions like, “Why should I believe your interpretation of the Bible?”, “Why does a good God allow evil to exist?”, “How do you explain contradictions in the resurrection story?”, and more.  From the broadly philosophical to specific questions about Biblical teaching, you’ll find some of the most common (and best) questions about the Christian faith answered right here.

More interested in practical issues?  Take a look at Answers for Teens where Josh addresses topics ranging from parents and self-image to sex and abuse.  Or, visit the resources page where you’ll find everything from books to free downloads on the subjects that matter most.  Prefer to watch and listen?  This link will give you access to recordings of Josh’s testimony, the latest ministry videos, and even a podcast you can enjoy on your way to school or work!

Resources are great, but Josh also recognizes that the message of the Gospel is one of relationship – both between God and men and between people as individuals.  To this end, he is actively involved in building positive relationships between Christians and Muslims through A Bridge to Understanding.  Take a moment to view the video “Love Thy Neighbor” and check out ways that you can become involved in sharing the Good News with those who are seeking to know God.
