Come along for some live jazz and drinks including Buck's Fizz and elderflower cordial. Followed by a talk on what will really satisfy, looking at an account of Jesus' life. We will also be joined by double Olympic Silver medallist Debbie Flood to tell us why she's a Christian.
Its in our nature isn't it, to do what we want, go where we want, be free to live our lives as we see fit. No one has a monopoly on the truth, especially not if it is about my life. In a World where absolute truth is shunned in favour of a relativistic position why not come along this Tuesday to find out more about what Christians believe and why they may not be as arrogant as you think. Does a Christian's certainty of the truth breed arrogance and incite violence? Following on from a presentation of the evidence for Christianity, this talk will seek to address and answer questions on the 'arrogance' of Christians - Why do they 'insist' they're right?!
delusion (noun): 'An idiosyncratic belief or impression maintained despite being contradicted by reality or rational argument, typically as a symptom of mental disorder' Dawkins would have you believe that belief in God subverts science and knowledge, breeds ignorance, foments bigotry, and abuses children. All for a delusion. Is God a benign (but still illogical) Celestial Watchmaker? If Science hasn't replaced God, at least not for David Wilkinson and many others then where does it stand when looked at historically? Does it really subvert knowledge? The Christian faith rises and falls on the resurrection of Jesus - but how can we be sure that this occurred? Wasn't it faked? A big conspiracy? Today (Monday 9th) we'll be looking at these questions. In addition the speaker (Pete Day) will explore the reliability of the bible and whether it can be trusted in a merely historical sense.
