Christians have the truth so there is nothing to be afraid of but we also cannot bury our heads in the sand. Nearly 2/3 of teens today lose their faith when they go to college simply because they were NOT prepared when they left the house. That IS the purpose of this site and why I am adament about sending out my work for FREE. (In Spanish as well if needed or to share with a Spanish neighbor or friend (just let me know); Libra y DVD en espanol tambien)
Christianity envelopes the whole person; not just the intellect or faith but the whole person which includes the Arts as well.
I am slightly revamping this site simply because after receiving degrees in philosophy of religion as well as graduate degrees in Ancient History (all in a secular setting) it has become evident that people turn away from Christ due to emotional concerns though they prefer to say it is intellectual ones. Secondly because I have began working much more heavily with various Homeschool groups I am changing this site to be a tool for Homeschool parents and groups to use to instill a better sense of apologetics (1 Peter 3:15) into our children and be able to show "why" Christian theism is true-truth in a growingly secular world that is very hostile to any notion of absolute truth (especially of Christianity).
Homeschooling is so important (as is personal and small-group studies) that I am offering a simplified and condensed version of my published MA thesis as well as DVDs and other tools to help teach yourself and your children the importance of apologetics and knowing why the Bible is true. (1 Peter 3:15) So first of all PLEASE request your free package today (no strings attached I just ask that if I send you this Free package that you use it for His glory)
The above video shows that without God life is utterly absurd and this is the type of reality that both you and I, as well as our children must come to grips with.
FYI - Once you request your free package, please familarize yourself with the rest of the website.
First - you will find "Faith Under Fire" videos which show quick snipits between a Christian and a non-Christian debating (only about 10-15 minutes in total length) to help you understand the challenges that will be thrown at you and your children in a growingly hostile world. *These videos will introduce you and your students/children to some of the various attacks against Christianity, God and the Bible and show why these attacks are weak and mostly without any warrant at all. (It will also help you better understand the books/videos I will send you in your FREE package).
Secondly - you will find various headings on the tabs to the left such as "Does God Exist", "Philosophy and God", "Evolution and God", etc. that will give you some basic information, videos, etc. to better understand these concepts; as well as being able to articulate them to your students. (Keep in mind that these concepts at a basic level are quite easy to understand so do not worry if there are some areas that you better understand than others and know that I am always only an email away as needed for any help I may offer.)
Thirdly - I have several "Debates/Dialouges" setup simply because this is the "real-world" we live in and we MUST equip our children (and outselves) to better face a hostile world; we have the truth so what do we have to fear? (This coming from someone who has debated many various groups on the topics)
Lastly - I have a few areas for those of you who are wishing for more "academic freedom" within the public sphere for your children. Though public education is becoming increasingly hostile to theism, if we equip our children appropriately as well as debate/reach-out in a loving way to our school officials we may still be able to turn the helm of public educaiton before it finally crashes in a sea of relativism...
Christians have the truth so there is nothing to be afraid of but we also cannot bury our heads in the sand. Nearly 2/3 of teens today lose their faith when they go to college simply because they were NOT prepared when they left the house. That IS the purpose of this site and why I am adament about sending out my work for FREE. (again my MA thesis The Philosophy of History is on the shelves at Barnes and Nobles so this is not simply me having some self-published work but my contact information is at the bottom of the page so please do not hesitated to contact me for any questions/concerns). This simple site is setup (after you get your FREE package) to just give you a top-level approach but this should be more than enough to encourage you to have a good understanding of Apologetics 101 but also to dig in areas that you feel led to better understand.
How sad is this quote:
"Many high school seniors believe that Sodom and Gomorrah were husband and wife, while a majority of Americans cannot name one of the four Gospels. Jay Leno asked his Tonight Show audience one night to name one of Jesus’ twelve apostles; they came up empty. One in ten Americans believes that Joan of Arc was Noah’s wife, and only one-third knows that Jesus (not Billy Graham) preached the Sermon on the Mount." - Washington Monthly
“The incredibly counterproductive fads, fashions, and dogmas of American education – from kindergarten to the colleges – have yet to take their full toll, in part because all the standards of earlier times have not yet been completely eroded away. In short, too many American schools are turning out students who are not only intellectually incompetent but also morally confused, emotionally alienated, and socially maladjusted.”

Bottom line is this - The United States is and will most likely continue to experience a "post-Christian" world where Christianity will continue to be hated by secularists and other religions alike; this is to be expected since Christ Himself said to expect such treatment if we truly were His followers. We must begin better preparing our kids NOW to have good biblically-based answers to questions that attack our faith.
Grim reminder of what compromise can get us. (Sadly many Christian groups compromised their faith with Hitler and Nazism; may the future not say this about you and I...)
Please let me know if you have any questions at all; I am here to help you and your students:
