RZIM Europe Training Days
You will be required to do wrong no matter where you go. It is the basic condition of life, to be required to violate your own identity. At some time, every creature which lives must do so. It is the ultimate shadow, the defeat of creation; this is the curse at work, the curse that feeds on all life. Everywhere in the universe. (Philip K. Dick, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?)
It just ain’t the same, old ways have changed; New days are strange, is the world insane? (Will.i.am)
Should we simply accept that we live in a morally confusing world where ‘anything goes’? Moral relativism has huge consequences for civilisations – at a much deeper level than just the seemingly contentious issues of the day. Ultimately, it leads to a redefinition of our relationships, ourselves, and of God.
This RZIM Training Day is aimed at giving Christians a greater confidence in being able to respond to some of the key questions we face today and in the future, in a world where people are no longer clear about their identity and how to determine what is right and wrong.
The day includes talks on:
- Objectification: from connection to consumerism, with Michael Ramsden addressing contemporary challenges to relationships.
- Emerging technologies and how these further complicate the moral minefield by challenging the very identity of humanity. Tom Price looks at whether the church will have a relevant and persuasive answer ready for the future moral landscape.
- The impact of relativism on how God is viewed. With many people no longer believing in a personal God or raising complaints about his moral character, Sharon Dirckx focuses on how Christians can respond to such objections.
In addition to the three keynote talks, the day will feature an extensive question and answer session with the speakers, as well as an Apologetics Area set aside for you to ask key questions to our wider team throughout the day. We will also have a comprehensive range of apologetics resources on sale.
