God is . . . Wisdom

George Haraksin

Given the choice to enrich your life, would you choose religion or wisdom? Or both? Whichever you choose, choose wisely.

Colossians 2:2–3 calls for the church to be “encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” In this talk, I aim to remind us that the wisdom revealed and taught in the Hebrew texts finds its fulfillment in the person of Jesus Christ, God’s wisdom in person.

God is . . . An Artist

Fazale Rana

Throughout life’s history, every corner of the Earth has been filled with a vast assemblage of creatures—from the beautiful to the bizarre. What purpose do these diverse creatures serve? Could it be that God is a Divine Artist, with these creatures reflecting his creative panache?

Thinking about God as a Divine Artist moves me to my core. It causes me to fall more deeply in love with God. It draws me closer to him. It fills my heart with a deep desire to worship him.

In this talk, I make the biblical case that God is rightly understood as a Divine Artist and then explore the impact that this view of God has for how we understand life’s history. I conclude by exploring what this view of God teaches us about ourselves as human beings made in God’s image.


God is . . . Trustworthy and Reliable

Jeff Zweerink

Many people see science and Christianity as being in conflict. From this perspective, the facts and reason of science undermine any basis to believe Christianity might be true. Over the past two decades, I have investigated numerous potential issues where scientific knowledge seemed to conflict with Christianity. In this talk, I’ll explain how, in every instance, my investigations revealed more evidence that God’s revelation in Scripture and in creation are both trustworthy and reliable.

God is . . . Bigger Than We Know

Hugh Ross

Some holy books declare that God is transcendent (existing and operating beyond the cosmic spacetime dimensions) but aloof and distant from his creation. Others declare that God is immanent (existing and operating everywhere within the universe) but limited to the universe. The Bible alone declares that God is simultaneously transcendent and immanent.

In this talk, I’ll explain how trans- and extra-dimensions help address this and other paradoxical doctrines people encounter in Scripture and provide us with a powerful tool for establishing that the Bible alone is the inspired written Word of God.
