ICA Academy and Hong Kong Centre for Christian Apologetics jointly offer the Apologetic course – The Evidences for Christianity.
Many of our non-Christian friends face intellectual obstacles when they encounter the Christian faith. This course equips students with the knowledge and skills to articulate compelling responses that would help to remove these obstacles in practical settings. This will be achieved through high impact learning practices such as interviewing their friends and participating in group debates.
This is a follow-up to “The Evidences for God” course, where it covered the Kalaam Cosmological Argument and the Design Argument for the existence of God, the Creation and Evolution Controversy and the Problem of Evil and Suffering. However, taking the previous course will not be a prerequisite for taking this course.
At the conclusion of this course, students should be able to:
1. Confidently engage in conversations with their friends about the evidences for Christianity.
2. Critically evaluate their objections and formulate clear, logical, systematic and precise responses to them.
3. Apply what they have learned in various ministry settings: pastoral, cell groups, youth groups, Sunday schools, student ministries, personal evangelism and discipleship training.
