Preparing for the Next Cultural Revolution as Ambassadors for Christ?
Alan Shlemon – Stand To Reason Apologetic Ministries
COVIC 19 NOTE: We are moving forward. See the note on COVID procedures we will be practicing and hotel policy below.
Responding as Ambassadors: What is “Critical Theory” and why have Christian ministries been caught off guard by this current revolution sweeping society and the church?
Forum – Jan. 22-23rd, 2021 Friday PM and Saturday AM
Location - Bighorn Resort, 1801 Majestic Ln., Billings, MT
Register and buy Tickets HERE $10 on line, $14 at the door lets you into both days.
Issues that Alan will discuss:
Critical Theory: What worldview is the source of this false philosophy?
How is it that so many believers have embraced CT and are attempting to parrot it back into the church?
The Trump administration diagnosed its step-child (Critical Race Theory) and stopped its indoctrination in Federal agencies. How did the church miss it?
What false philosophy—in a year, in five years, or in a decade - will spawn the next Cultural Revolution?
The son of Iraqi immigrants, Alan will also discuss “A Closer Look at Islam.”

NOTE on COVID Procedures: You may be aware that Yellowstone County has been given stricter procedures for some groups – limiting them to 25 people. However, the Big Horn Resort, in consulting with County Health Director John Felton, is allowed to continue at 75% capacity in their convention center – just as we did for Sean McDowell. We will be posting signs outlining the hotel’s procedures for social distancing, recommending wearing of masks, etc. Interestingly, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) is no longer recommending lock downs.
A Note from Francis Schaeffer:
Worldviews “bring forth with inevitable certainty” ideas that play themselves out in culture. In other words, if society has bought into a worldview, its ideas will be manifest in the behavior of its citizens.
