A World of Evil

Episode 258: The Supreme Court ruled on Hobby Lobby’s case. It has been interesting to hear the dissent from secular progressives on this ruling, especially the claim that now a boss is imposing their religious convictions on employees. Really? What does it REALLY look when a boss imposes their religious beliefs on employees? Tune in as I discuss this, plus…

Is it just me or does anyone else find it coincidental that the same week gay pride events are being held in America, parts of Iraq and Syria are declared an Islamic state? If that is not a contrast in countries I do not know what is. Here in the states, freedom has been hijacked to such a degree that immoral behavior is literally paraded down Main Street. There in the Middle East, a self-proclaimed religion of peace rapes and murders women for not paying a tax. The world over evil abounds.

The Bible says, “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people” (Proverbs 14.34). When a nation or people put into practice and keep the word of God, it is a blessing. As the Psalmist says, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord” (33.12). However, whether that nation of people be Hebrew, American, or Islamic, sin is a black stain on any people. So we see two very different yet equally sinful situations on opposite sides of the planet. “‘There is no peace,’ says the Lord, ‘for the wicked’” (Isaiah 48.22).

What leads to this? The abandonment of God’s word. In America, secular progressives have sought to legislate God’s word out of schools, buildings, and monuments. In the Middle East, the Koran is the religious book of choice and any other alternatives are ruthlessly eradicated. In both nations there is famine in the land, “not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord” (Amos 8.11).  “O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the Lord” (Jeremiah 22.29, ASV). “For when your judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world learn righteousness” (Isaiah 26.9). And with righteousness comes exaltation.

Implications of God’s Existence

Episode 257: Far too often far too many Christians live as though they do not believe in God. Craig Groeschel calls this “Christian Atheism.” But since God exists, what does that mean for our lives? Tune in as I examine the implications for God’s existence upon the life of those who claim to believe in Him.

Question of the Day: Why should people of other religions be sent to Hell because they happened to be born into a non-Christian home?

The Knowledge of God

Episode 256: John Calvin called it sensus divinitatis which is the “seed of religion.” Current research is calling “intuitive theism.” Even the bulldog of atheism Richard Dawkins says that “religion is ubiquitous.” There is built into every human an awareness of something bigger and transcendent, a sense for God. Tune in as I explain how through general revelation & special revelation God is practically screaming at us that He exists.

Question of the Day: Can I trust the Bible?

What View of God is Right?

Episode 255: I recently explored the question “Does God exist?” is two previous episodes here & here. While the evidence provided in those episodes is sufficient to demonstrate that there is a God, it does not address what God is like or which view of God is right. In this episode I explore the various worldviews concerning God. Which view of God is right? Tune in as I explore this question.

Question of the Day: Why is the God of the Bible the only true God?

But while he was punished for performing his son’s wedding to another man, there are those who say that there is coming a “witch hunt” for those who are advocates of traditional marriage. Tune in as I explain the “heart” of the matter.

Is There a God? (Part 1)

Episode 252: Perhaps the most important a person could ask & answer is “Does God exist?” It is a question which has implications upon every aspect of a person’s life.
