5 Key Issues

The Uniqueness of Christianity

Consciously or not, every human being has a worldview; it’s the way they view themselves, the world and all of reality. That worldview has consequences, for what a person believes determines how they live. So what is the correct worldview and how can it be verified? In this 58 min presentation, Michael Penfold tests 5 common worldviews against three questions: “Where do we come from?”, “What’s wrong with the world?”, and “How do we solve the problem?”. After demonstrating that…

The Rock of Scripture

In 1890, British Prime Minister, William Gladstone, wrote a book about the Bible entitled “The Impregnable Rock of Holy Scripture”. Battering this rock in recent centuries has been Higher Criticism, one of the off-shoots of the Enlightenment. In an Enlightenment world, where the universe is a self-propelled machine, man is the measure of all things, and reason has replaced revelation, there is no room for miracles, nor for a book about miracles. How can anyone defend the idea that the…

Richard Dawkins has famously remarked that Darwin’s theory of evolution “made it possible to become an intellectually fulfilled atheist”. But what if evolution is a lie? What if design, not chance,…

The Folly of Atheism

The Bible doesn’t beat about the bush. Twice over it says “The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God’.” In this 57 min presentation, Michael Penfold expounds this biblical conclusion, as he examines the folly of a system of thought that posits “everything came from nothing by chance”. Rather than acknowledge the existence of God, atheism throws up endless arguments trying to get round the obvious. Why? Not because atheists cannot believe in God, but because they won’t. That’s the…

The Existence of Truth

Pilate’s question is still the most fundamental of all: “What is truth?”. In this 51 minute audio presentation, follow the trail of truth from the pre-modern era, through the modern era to the post-modern era of today. Learn how truth was fractured during the Enlightenment through the radical ideas of Descartes, Locke, Hume and Kant. Trace the West’s 400 year descent into madness as it ‘progressed’ from rationalism, to empiricism, to agnosticism, to nihilism, to existentialism, to postmodernism and beyond;…
