Christians believe in the Trinity. This doctrine have confused both Christians and non-Christians. Skeptics have also pointed to the Trinity to show that Christianity is logically incoherent and is a blind leap of faith. In this session, we will explore this doctrine and see how to make sense of it.

Christianity claims that Jesus is the only way to heaven (eg. John 14:6, Acts 4:12). But a great number of people have never heard the gospel. How can a good God send people to hell just because they never heard of Jesus? How about infants? Does the Bible really teach that those who have never heard the gospel are doomed to hell?

Most Christians don't come to believe in God because of arguments or evidences. Most of them don't even know what apologetics is! Some issues arise out of this. First, do such Christians believe blindly? Are they irrational and unjustified in their belief? Second, since so many people become Christians without apologetics, what role does apologetics play? In this session, I shed some light on how Christians typically form beliefs and it's implications for apologetics.

How do you tell others why they should be a Christian? In this talk, we have Terrence (who is pursuing a Masters in Apologetics at Biola University) to share why one should be a Christian. His approach will cover truth, sin, and how Jesus is the answer.

In this session, we will explore Jesus’ cry of dereliction. While Jesus was on the cross, He cried out, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” Many interpret this passage as saying that God had abandoned Jesus and the Trinity was broken. This leads to various questions: How can Jesus be God if He was God-forsaken? How can there be brokenness within the Trinity? Will God also turn away from us and abandon us when we sin?

While Christianity rests centrally on the miracle of Jesus' resurrection, many sceptics reject the idea that miracles can happen altogether. This session will look at why and how we can identify that a miracle has happened.
