Bob's Talks

MOST POPULAR TOPICS

The Gathering Storm – The Gathering Storm addresses the Secular Humanist’s persistent attacks on Christianity, the family, and the freedoms we hold dear.  It deals with Critical Race Theory, the LGBTQ agenda, and other current issues.  This talk will compare the dedication of the underground church in China in contrast to American Christianity.  The problem may not be the Secular Humanists; it may be the church in America itself.  Listeners are left with encouragement from Psalms 37 along with some ways we can push back against the storm. 

Eyewitness History – Those who disbelieve the Bible have devised another explanation of how we got here without God, and they have been successful in convincing generations that their belief is scientific fact. However, we have an Eyewitness to all of history from the beginning to the end. God told us how He created a perfect earth; but because Adam sinned, we now live in a broken world where all of us need a Savior. God told us how He judged the earth in a global flood, and then changed the languages of all people, thus scattering them across the earth. Since these are all literal historical events given to us by Someone who was there, we would expect observations in the present to confirm these events. And they do! This talk will conclude with the gospel message and show how this history, starting in Genesis, shows Jesus is the only way.

Dinosaurs, Dragons, and Aliens: The Great Deception – The whole family will enjoy this talk as we answer the questions: “Does the Bible really talk about dinosaurs?”, “Did dinosaurs really live millions of years ago or did God create them on day 6 with the rest of the animals?”, “Wouldn’t Adam have been afraid of the dinosaurs?”, “How could Noah get dinosaurs on the ark?”, “What really happened to the dinosaurs?” The other great deception of our age is that aliens seeded life here on earth, so they are our creators. This talk gives the history of this great deception and ends with seeing it all through Biblical eyes. 

How the Bible Changed the World – Have you ever wondered why Europe and North America have so much freedom and prosperity while so many other areas of the world have struggled for centuries? Some are saying that the West (based on a Judeo-Christian worldview) is rich and powerful because it is so evil and racist. The truth is that the Bible has changed the world. We begin by contrasting the true perspective of reality given to us in the Bible with other worldviews around the world that have kept people in bondage and poverty. We conclude with the worldview clash in America between the Bible and Secular Humanism, and how humanists have been successful in teaching their lies to the younger generations. This false worldview will lead to devastating consequences right here in America. This talk is designed to give a greater appreciation of the importance of the Bible and explain why America is so divided today.

Science Confirms the Bible  – This talk will explain how the Big bang, life evolving from nothing, and gradual evolution, are not science, but a belief of what happened in the past. Natural selection, which can be seen, actually goes against evolution and confirms what we would expect if God created. While showing the fallacies of evolution, this talk points people to the authority of scripture  and the gospel message.

EXTRA TOPICS

Dueling Worldviews – How can so many sincere people have such diametrically opposing views about how to make this world a better place. Many people start out by believing the basic assumption of Secular Humanism. This worldview permeates much of the western influenced world. It has taken over educational institutions, the media, and much of political thinking. By contrasting the basic starting beliefs of a Biblical Worldview with the starting beliefs of Secular Humanism, we’ll begin to see how these contrasting views flesh out in the political, moral and social issues of our day.

Genesis: The Key to Abundant Living – There are too many Christians struggling with sin, just holding on till Jesus comes and finally gives us eternal life. Jesus said He came not only to give us life, but abundant life. The book of Genesis is the key to understand this often missed aspect of our salvation. When we see the events as described in Genesis as literal and historical, we are able to see how we had everything in Adam, how we lost it all in Satan, and how we gain it all back in Christ. This is not your typical apologetics lecture, yet this will be a great faith building and empowering message.

The Struggle is Real: Reaching a Questioning World – How do we reach a world for Christ that is convinced that the Bible is a myth?  How do we teach in church so young people don’t grow up thinking they have outgrown fairytales? This struggle is real, and the church must seriously consider what it is doing, or the exodus of the younger generations will just continue.

How Do I Know the Bible Is True? – This is not “How Can I Prove the Bible Is True?” Everyone starts out with a belief system, and proof of that believe system is always ‘in the eye of the beholder.’ Are there good reasons to be confident in the scriptures, or do we just have blind faith? This talk will explain why atheists are the ones who go by blind faith, while Christians have good reasons to believe the Bible.

Age Matters: A Young Earth – Is the age of the earth just an interpretation issue that is really not that important? It really boils down to this…Can we trust the Bible literally, or do we have to look to modern science to help us figure out what the Bible means? Do we have to accept atheist’s story of how we got here without God, or can we trust exactly with God told us. This talk will trace how theologians have undermined the authority of scripture. It will end with how this literal history is important to the gospel message

Evolution Mythbusting – As an outreach to seekers or to those who are convinced evolution is true, this talk is made up of short video clips of interviews with mainstream secular scientists who are questioning the basic tenants of evolution. The purpose is not to answer all the questions, but to put cracks in their armor of disbelief. By dealing with the typical “evidences” for evolution – fossils, mutations, finch beaks, etc., this talk points out that there is no observational evidence for evolution. This powerful presentation concludes with an animated tour of a living cell to illustrate how life could not have come about by spontaneous generation. After seeing this presentation, one Chinese university student shared with her Christian friend, “I have cracks in my armor of disbelief.”
