Passing the Torch

Click Here to Register for Childcare

According to statistics, six in ten youth will leave the church by the time they are adults. Christian parents and their churches are losing the future of American Christianity and, worse, they seem helpless to stop the exodus. For a full year, Larry Alex Taunton—author, columnist, and executive director of the Fixed Point Foundation—interviewed students across the country to better understand their complaints and concerns. What they discovered might surprise you. On Tuesday November 18th, Larry and Rick Burgess (of the nationally syndicated and hugely popular “Rick and Bubba Show”) will discuss these findings, the challenges of parenting in a culture that is increasingly hostile to Christian belief, and will offer practical winning strategies for passing the torch of faith to the next generation. Join them on November 18th at Shades Mountain Baptist Church in Birmingham, AL from 7-9 pm. Childcare available by registration.

 
Old Testament Violence

Old Testament ViolenceFixed Point has never been about avoiding the tough questions, so we've taken on one of the most difficult subjects when it comes to the Bible: How do we understand Old Testament violence?  It's a serious topic that defies simple, trite, or dismissive answers.  Is this utterly indefensible ground, or could it be that we need to know our Bibles better?

This new resource provides some principles that are helpful in processing these jarring events and the reasons behind them.
