Ben’s story is a powerful example of how the Gospel changes lives.” — Don Newbury, Chancellor, Howard Payne University.

How the Gospel turned my world right-side up – Ben shares his personal testimony of growing up in a pseudo-Christian subculture where he trained and went to Seminary. After becoming a pastor, he found the Gospel and left it all (employment, identity, comfort zone) to follow Christ.
How to protect yourself (and your congregation) against false gospels – There’s no shortage of gospels out there masquerading as the Gospel of Jesus Christ. You can’t study them all, but you can be prepared to spot Scripture twisting a mile away.
The Bible: What’s the big deal? Understanding and submitting to the Bible’s authority
Does it jibe with the Bible? – It seems like everyone can prove their doctrinal points with a Bible text. How do I know who is right and who is lying? How can a non-theologian like me, discern truth?
Worldview matters – Your worldview is your frame of reference. You analyze and understand the world through the lenses of your worldview. What is your worldview? How can you develop a biblical worldview? Why does it matter?
How to get it wrong, every time (the importance of hermeneutics) – Reading the Bible is important, but even more important is how you read it. Learn the principles of sound biblical interpretation that will help you put the pieces together.
