I recently had the privilege of presenting several workshops at the First Baptist Church of Jacksonville’s annual Pastor’s Conference. In particular, I was asked to speak on How Apologetics Can Strengthen Families and Youth.

I chose to focus on what I believe are seven new realities from when I grew up.

  1. The Ubiquity of the Cell-Phone and the Arts.
  2. A Change in Values in Our Country.
  3. A New Minority Status.
  4. A Need for a Clear and Compelling Christian Sexual Ethic.
  5. We Need to Think Clearly about the Inoculation Theory.
  6. We Need to Think Clearly about our Goals.
  7. We Need to Think Clearly about our Strategies.
