Who has not heard this question since expressing their faith in Jesus Christ? 

This webinar will take four steps to show that we are not irrational to believe in Jesus Christ. It is a matter of worldview, logic, faith, and good reasons... We will see that everyone has faith in something which makes up their worldview and that this faith always rests on reasons. The evaluation of the arguments which lend support to our specific worldview is again dependent on our worldview assumptions. Therefore, we need to find a method by which we can step out of our worldview and compare the plausibility of worldviews. In doing so, we will discuss 4 good reasons for the existence of a personal God and 2 good reasons for the divinity of Jesus Christ.
