  2. Dawkins attack clip from “Expelled” 1:27.27 – 1:28.46

  3. “Whatever we once were, we are no longer just a Christian nation; we are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.” -- Barack Obama

  4. “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other.” – John Adams

  5. “…in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect” (1 Peter 3:15 NIV)

  6. “…even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. “Do not fear what they fear; do not be frightened.” 15 But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord…” (1 Peter 3:14–15 NIV)

  7. I. In Your hearts set apart Christ as Lord.

  8. “For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” (Colossians 1:16–17 NIV)

  9. “Expelled clip” - 1:29:56 – 1:31:54

  10. “The God Delusion was dumped on my desk by a parent who lamented that her high school child got the book from the library, read it and has now denounced her faith...”

  11. I. In Your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. II. Always be prepared.

  12. “Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” (Ephesians 6:14–17 NIV)

  13. “…men of half the tribe of Manasseh, designated by name to come and make David king—18,000; 32 men of Issachar, who understood the times and knew what Israel should do—200 chiefs, with all their relatives under their command; 33 men of Zebulun, experienced soldiers prepared for battle with every type of weapon, to help David with undivided loyalty—50,000;” (1 Chronicles 12:31–33 NIV)

  14. I. In Your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. II. Always be prepared. III. Give an Answer.

  15. “…in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect” (1 Peter 3:15 NIV)

  16. There Can’t be Just One True Religion. How Could a Good God Allow Suffering? Christianity is a Straitjacket. The Church is Responsible for So Much Injustice. How Can a Loving God Send People to Hell? Science Has Disproved Christianity. You Can’t Take the Bible Literally.

  17. I. In Your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. II. Always be prepared. III. Give an Answer. IV. Do this with gentleness and respect.

  18. I believe that Jesus Christ, true God, begotten of the father from eternity, and also true man, born of the Virgin Mary, is my Lord, who has redeemed me, a lost and condemned person, purchased and won me from all sins, from death, and from the power of the devil; not with gold or silver, but with His holy, precious blood and with His innocent suffering and death, that I may be His own, and live under Him in His kingdom, and serve Him in everlasting righteousness, innocence, and blessedness, just as He is risen from the dead, lives and reigns to all eternity. This is most certainly true!
