Blaugmenting Your Christian Worldview: Almost Done

How about this for a group study. I cam across this blog whose stated aim is to buck the trend for Jesus:

"I hate the statistic that informs us that 75% of high school students will walk away from their faith shortly after leaving high school. I plan our studies with the intent of lowering that statistic with each student that comes in. My goals include:

  • removing intellectual excuses people give for claiming Christianity is false
  • removing students in these studies from the pond that pseudo-Christian movements fish from (Groups like the Watchtower & Mormonism normally convert Christians into their movements. Not these students!)
  • helping students develop spiritual disciplines (prayer, reading and studying the Bible, memorization, sharing our faith)."

Maybe this will inspire others to start such a group. His book choice for the group, Ron Rhode's "Reasoning from the Scriptures with Jehovah's Witnesses" is an excellent choice and no small challenge - but it goes to show it can be done. I like his plans for the future too.
