MONDAY, SEPT 12 @ DALLAS THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY

BRAVE

NEW

WORLD

How do we as Christians courageously engage and compassionately love others in an increasingly pluralistic society, without compromising our biblical convictions?

Brave New World is a one-day conference that will explore how the church can effectively communicate the unchanging Word in a relentlessly changing world. We’ll look at current examples of where the church is succeeding—as well as where it has failed—in its responses to cultural shifts, and provide insight for moving forward. During this highly interactive experience, you’ll have the opportunity to engage with fellow ministry leaders and hear from leading evangelical ethicist Russell Moore.

 

This event won’t be just a series of talks, but a dynamic gathering of leaders to participate in a frank and open forum on how the gospel compels us to engage our culture for the sake of Christ.

KEYNOTE TOPICS

Engaging the Culture Without Losing the Gospel - The illusion of being a Christian majority in this country has not been good for our understanding of what it means to be the people of God. As we enter the public arena, we don't come with a Christless form of religion that is satisfied with mere behavior modification rather than new birth. We need to remember that we are sent with consciences that are shaped and formed by the Word God, for the purpose of reconciliation.
Whole-life Pro-life in All of Life - The gospel tells us that human life is of infinite value and importance. Human beings are created in the image of God himself. (Gen. 1:27). Not only that, but human life was joined to God forever in the incarnation of the Lord Jesus Christ. This has implications for a whole range of issues from racial justice, to abortion, to caring for the poor. Our convictions in the public square must be gospel formed and Kingdom driven. The value of human life isn’t just an issue for Congress or activists or ethics professors. It’s an issue for every single Christian and every single local church.
