The Berean Call Conference ~ Live Online

I sure wish we were in Bend, Oregon this week and able to be at The Berean Call Conference in-person! But since that ended up not being possible, the next best thing is being able to watch it live online.

They have an excellent line up of speakers who will be sharing on many pertinent and helpful topics such as Evangelism and being bold for Christ . . . "Days of Apostasy: Scripture's Prevention Program for Believers" . . . God's faithfulness . . . and also Calvinism, Catholicism, and the New Age and Quantum Spirituality movement.

The full schedule of speakers and the titles of their sessions can be found on The Berean Call's website here. I have heard many of these men either speak before or have read their writings, all of which have been helpful and encouraging to me both in my walk with Christ and for when talking with others about various topics.

2016 Conference - Participate Online

Anyway, I just wanted to invite you all to 'attend' the conference as well! It starts tomorrow, and you can sign up for the online conference herethough no registration is necessary (edited to add: it looks like registration is now closed, but again, you don't need to register to watch the conference.)

And you can find more information on their LiveStream page, which is where the conference will be streamed.

You can set up an account and register there, and then the times for the sessions will coincide with your local time zone. (If you can't watch the sessions live, they should be available afterward to watch, too.)

Live updates are shared on their Facebook page, too.

If you do 'attend' the live conference, be prepared to be encouraged, helped, challenged, and strengthened in your faith! I for one am sure looking forward to it. :)

  1. I would love to hear what the speaker on Catholicism has to say! I am Catholic myself, and I love listening to people of other Christian denominations have their say on it. Some are not so respectful, because they don't understand it (even if they call themselves ex-Catholic), but I am still open to listen to their positions and how they view this denomination (mainly to understand how different denominations/views/doctrines can come together and what is preventing us from achieving peace...for some it's quite obvious - Jesus). I am hoping I can tune into it!

    1. Thank you for your comment, Gabriela, and for sharing all that you did! I hope you are able to tune in to the session on Catholicism this evening. Tom McMahon (who is a former Catholic and the head of The Berean Call) is the one who will be speaking. I know he will have excellent things to share.

      If you visit their website (www.thebereancall.org), they also have many very good and Biblically based articles, radio programs, and books on Catholicism. You can simply do a search on Catholicism to find those (and search their store as well.)

      Yes, many people do not understand Catholicism . . . including many Catholics! My Dad was raised Catholic and has done extensive study of it including a comparative analysis with Scripture of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, The Counsel of Trent, the history of the Catholic church, etc. (And I have studied it a fair bit as well.)

      You mention about the different denominations and faith practices coming together . . . unity among believers in Christ is so important!, but it has to be a unity founded and built upon the Scriptures alone and the true gospel of Jesus Christ. And Catholicism contradicts Scripture on many vital areas (and most significantly, the gospel) and also not as vital ones, too.

      You mentioned that you love listening to people of "other Christian denominations", and I was wondering if you could e-mail me your address (to aslilies@gmail.com) as there is something I would really like to send you. Thanks! :) And thank you again for your comment, too!
