Episode 432: An episode about unbelievers who say the quiet part out loud. Richard Dawkins affirms only two sexes – male and female. Greta Thunberg is awarded an honorary doctorate in theology from the University of Helsinki. These two events help us think through the nature of facts. What are facts? We explore the common ground everyone (except for the extreme fringe) would agree upon before pulling the carpet out from under the unbeliever to demonstrate their feet are firmly planted in mid-air when they claim to know facts.
Episode 416: Recently, an article was published concerning “How We Got the Bible.” Having done some research on the subject, I decided to respond to the claims being made in that article. I start out with a run through 2 Timothy 3.16 for orientation. Then, I tackle the articles assertions paragraph. As will become evident, many assertions are made with no basis in reality, history, or, most importantly, Scripture.
Since I reference it, here is the bibliographic information on Beckwith’s book:
Beckwith, Roger. The Old Testament Canon of the New Testament Church. Grand Rapids, MI: Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co., 1985.
Episode 405: Have you heard about the genocide taking place in Myannmar? The government is systematically killing the Royinga Muslims in that country. So where is God in that mess? What could possibly be the reason for the awful suffering happening there? Tune in as I tackle a very tough subject.

Question of the Day: Do “eye for an eye” & “turn the other cheek” contradict each other?
Episode 352: So much going on in the world, but I don’t really feel like tackling any of it. At random, I chose to pick on Richard Dawkins (he seems like an easy target). Tune in as I discuss his “very, very bad” best argument for God & against evolution. Word of the Day: Sardonic
Today in Church History: Death of Marguerite Bourgeoys (1700)
Question of the Day: Is pledging allegiance to the flag or any other material object right or wrong?
Episode 311: A number of states still have the death penalty. However, some Christians do not believe that the death penalty should still practiced. It is too “barbaric” or “cruel and unusual punishment” and America is better than that. Is it ever morally permissible, though, to execute a criminal when the nature of the crime demands such punishment? Tune in as I explore this question from the Bible.
Episode 304: 42 years ago Roe V. Wade legalized abortion in the United States. Since then, some 57 million America babies have been systematically slaughtered by the abortion industry. Recently, I went to a pro-life rally and in today’s episode I share some of my experiences from that excursion.
Episode 291: Today’s episode wraps-up a discussion of the Scriptural principles which are informative regarding the issue of euthanasia. What is a Christian response in this conversation about euthanasia? Tune in as I unpack several principles which are instructive.

Episode 290: In today’s episode, I continue discussing euthanasia from a Christian worldview & Biblical perspective. What are some of the arguments in favor of euthanasia? Tune in as I explain a few arguments for euthanasia and show how they fall apart when weighed against Biblical principles.
Question of the Day: How many suicides are there in the Bible?
Today in Church History: Matthew Henry begins his commentary
Episode 280: Allah claims to be the same God as the God of the Old & New Testaments. However, when we do a side-by-side comparison…well, really is no comparison. In fact, there is only a sharp contrast. How is the God of the Koran different than the God of the Bible? Tune in as I explore the fundamental differences between the God of Islam and the God of Christianity.
Episode 278: What people say about Jesus is important. Unfortunately, when it comes to Jesus, they not only do not agree with God about who Jesus is, the Koran does not get the basic historical facts right! Tune in as I explore what Muslims believe about Jesus based upon what is said about Him in the Koran.
