An annual apologetics conference geared toward young believers can help them do more than stand up for their faith.
Annual apologetics event Truth for a New Generation Conference is set for October 26 and 27 at Greenwell Springs Baptist Church, located in Baton Rouge.
One goal of TNG and its "Save a Nation" theme is to equip students to defend their faith, says Christian apologist Dr. Alex McFarland, but understanding a biblical worldview helps them also understand the current times we live in.
"We're talking about biblical worldview and how it relates to modern life. We're trying to equip the church to stand strong," he says. "What we're doing is we're giving answers to the tough questions people have --- how the scriptures deal with current issues."
One example, he says, is exploring morality and why it matters.
"And how if we don't believe in moral truth," he warns, "we stand to lose our very Constitution."
Scheduled speakers include Dr. Michael Brown, Ryan Bomberger, Meeke Addison, McFarland, and more.
Admisson is free for youths 17 and under who are accompanied by an adult.
