"Do not go to SES … unless you want to know why Christianity is true."

"Do not go to SES … unless you want to know why Christianity is true, and unless you want to be able to deal with the philosophical and skeptical ideas that are all over the culture. … SES does an absolutely terrible job at getting you to agree with the culture. … Don't go to SES if you want to be an average Christian who doesn't get anything done. Only go to SES if you want to be an ambassador and someone who's going to make a difference in life."
