(LIT & SPLITS)

What are SPLITS?

 

SPLITs are short videos (ie. less than 5 minutes) that focus on various topics. The end of every SPLIT video points to a LIT series. Hence SPLITs are categorized under the LIT series they promote.

SPLITs are available for viewing on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and other social media.

What is LIT?

Each LIT video is about 5 -10 minutes long and is part of Playlist series that focuses on a particular topic. For example, the series "Faith Doesn't Have to be Blind" consists of about 12 episodes that explain what Christianity is about; why it makes sense to believe; and why everyone should follow Jesus.
 

LIT episodes are available on YouTube; and on all the major podcast platforms in an audio only format.

Harvard Student's Shocking Transformation: From Atheist to Christian

Jordan Monge went on an incredible journey from atheism to faith in Jesus while studying at Harvard University. Through an ongoing conversation with a fellow student named John Joseph Porter, she realized that Christianity had a lot more going for it than she realized.

Stranger Things Opens a Surprising Portal of Truth to a Different Dimension

Stranger Things takes you on a thrilling 1980s adventure but it also opens a portal to truth. Despite being a fictional story, it opens viewers up to the possibility of a very real dimension that exists all around us - a dimension that sometimes “bleeds” into our own. To learn more about why we should take this other dimension seriously, check out the LIT series called "Faith Doesn't Have to be Blind" by Worldview Summit.

LIT - Harvard Student Goes From Atheist to Christian (Episode 1: Faith Doesn't Have to be Blind)

Michael Shermer alleges that the arguments and evidence for Christianity only convinces those that already believe. But this is not true. Many people have examined the evidence and decided to put their faith in Jesus. One example of this is Jordan Monge who started her studies at Harvard University as a committed atheist. While studying there she realized that the case for Christianity was a lot better than what she previously thought and so she decided to put her faith in Jesus.

LIT - Atheist Philosopher Changes his Mind (Episode 2: Faith Doesn't Have to be Blind)

Michael Shermer alleges that the arguments and evidence for Christianity only convinces those that already believe. But this is not true. Many people have examined the evidence and changed their minds. Sometimes they go all the way and become a follower of Jesus, and sometimes they just take steps in that direction. One example of this is the late Antony Flew. Flew was a professional philosopher and committed atheist who became known as a spokesperson for atheism. However, toward the end of his life he began to have doubts and he eventually concluded that some type of divine being existed.

LIT - Christianity is Not a Mere "Personal Truth" (Episode 3: Faith Doesn't Have to be Blind)

Neil DeGrasse Tyson claims that "religious truths" are just "personal truths." If this was correct, it would put Christian truth claims such as, "Jesus rose from the dead," in the same category as claims such as, "Bubble ice cream is the best flavour in the whole world." But this is a serious distortion of what the Bible teaches and how Christians have always understood their own beliefs. Jesus, his disciples, and generations of Christians, have been willing to suffer and die for what they held to be true. That's not something that people will do for personal, subjective truths akin to one's favourite flavour of ice cream. Tyson's view of religious claims are disrespectful and a perversion of what Christianity is all about.

LIT - Neil DeGrasse Tyson Gets World Religions Wrong (Episode 4: Faith Doesn't Have to Be Blind)

Neil DeGrasse Tyson alleges that when the religions of the world claim certain things to be true, they are just declaring “personal truths.” However, this is a perversion of what those religions are all about. For example, Islam’s adherence to strict monotheism is certainly not something that Muslims regard as a mere subjective, personal claim. This can be seen from the fact that the earliest Muslims were willing to suffer for their beliefs. Some Muslims will also kill, or threaten to kill, those who leave Islam. But that is not the type of behaviour one would expect from someone who thinks their religion is just a “personal truth,” akin to one’s favourite flavour of ice cream. This fact even applies to those religions, such as Hinduism and Bahaism, which claim that all religions are true. That is, when they say that all religions are true, they are making an objective claim about all of reality. These claims are either true or false. Anything less is a distortion of what they are all about.

LIT - Understanding What Apologetics Is and Is Not (Episode 5: Faith Doesn't Have to Be Blind)

Stand-up comedian, George Carlin, says that God does not exist and that the Bible is (essentially) a book of fairy tales. Apologetics is all about examining and critiquing these types of claims. The Bible says in 1 Peter 3:15 that Christians should always be prepared to give an answer for the hope that is in them. When Christians use apologetics to engage people with “gentleness and respect,” they take the time to understand what other people believe, care about them as individuals, and respectfully challenge their ideas. Many professors and scholars use “apologetics” in a negative sense but that is not how apologists understand the term.

LIT - Can You “Prove” that Christianity is True? (Episode 6: Faith Doesn't Have to be Blind)

When some Christians first learn about apologetics they can get excited about "proving" that Christianity is true. But "proving" that it's true is not as simple as it might sound. It's not that Christianity lacks sound evidence. (There is plenty of evidence.) The problem is that what counts as proof to one person, does not count as proof to another. This is especially apparent in the case of Richard Dawkins. When he was asked what would persuade him that God existed, he responded with "I'm starting to think that nothing would." If nothing can persuade an atheist like Dawkins, that should demonstrate how difficult it is to "prove" that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life.

LIT - Making the Case for Christianity (Episode 7: Faith Doesn't Have to Be Blind)

The core message of Christianity consists of four main points: 1. God loves us and he created us to worship and glorify him. 2. We have failed to worship and obey God. 3. In his death and resurrection, Jesus paid the penalty for our sins and therefore we can be forgiven by God. 4. We each need to make Jesus the Saviour and Lord of our lives. Christian apologists defend these four points in various ways. One way is that used by Dr. William Lane Craig in which he provides several arguments for the existence of God, and also historical arguments for Jesus' resurrection from the dead. To see more about how Craig defends his arguments, you can check out his debates by searching for him on YouTube.

Are you a “none?” Many people today claim to have no religious affiliation. Indeed there are so many religions and so many ways to look at reality it is difficult to commit to any one viewpoint. But these questions of ultimate reality cannot be put off forever. At some point in your life, you will have to make a choice. Even not choosing will be a choice in the end. Here we begin to look at the story of Anjali Kumar and her quest to answer those ultimate questions.
