Notes from Ravi Zacharias:: The New Spirituality


APOLOGETICS
reason for the hope in you

TESTS OF TRUTH (three things to do when u assert something)

logical consistency
empirical adequacy
experiential relevance


WORLDVIEW (four questions)
origin - where do i come from
meaning- what life really means
morality- what does it say about good and evil
destiny- what happens when we die

define life starting from what happens when you die
define life backwards not forward

5 disciplines
1. GOD
who is God?
2. REALITY/METAPHYSICS
how to deal with philosophical issues not in the laboratory.
meaning is not a scientific question
you don't define meaning with  empirical sicence
3. EPISTEMOLOGY
how do you know something is true?
how do you verify it
diff. fields of discipline have diff views
4. MORALITY
neurologically engendered
x values are totally autonomous
5. ANTHROPOLOGY
