Some Christians are saying that since Christ saved the world through weakness by agreeing to go on the cross, Christians should not use power in politics or culture wars. Christianity Today leader Russell Moore recently wrote a column titled, "THE CROSS CONTRADICTS OUR CULTURE WARS: The victory of Christ was won by crucifixion, not societal conquest.” Is Moore correct? Is it unchristian to seek political power to right wrongs i...

What explains the super extreme—even mad—positions we’ve seen people take publicly in recent years? For example, how did we go from abortion being “safe, legal, and rare” to “shout your abortion” and laws even allowing the murder of babies 28 days AFTER they are born? How did we go from “believe every woman” to “what’s a woman?” in just four years? How did we go from considering gender dysphoria a mental condition to affirming 3-5 ...

Can we really believe Jesus rose from the dead? If the Resurrection of Jesus didn’t really happen, then Christianity is false (as even the Apostle Paul admitted in 1 Cor. 15). On the other hand, if it really did happen 1,989 years ago (give or take a few years), then the essentials of the Christian faith really are true. So which is it? Justin Brierley, host of the wonderfully interesting Unbelievable show in the UK, joins Frank t...

President Biden said this week that all trans people are made in the image of God. He’s absolutely right. Everyone is. But the President then ignored the end of the verse: “God made them male and female”. The President then went on to affirm “gender-affirming care” FOR CHILDREN that includes hormones, puberty blockers, chemical castration drugs, “top” surgeries — elective mastectomies and breasts enhancements — and “bottom” surger...

What do you think about when you hear the word “God”? Too many of us have false knowledge about God. We think God loves us more if we obey Him and less if we don’t. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, there is a story in the Bible— a story you are actually in— that just could revolutionize your understanding of God and His grace. Frank unpacks that story in this episode. Get ready to look at the prodigal son passage a...

Are you FOR a free and respectful debate about controversial issues? Are you FOR the freedom to have your own political opinions without fear of losing your job? Are you FOR respecting people and their positions rather than calling them names or censoring them? Are you FOR the freedom to speak the truth to love even those who disagree with you? Are you FOR forgiveness rather than being executed by cancel culture? Are you FOR protec...

Do you have to have a degree in theology, philosophy, or apologetics in order to speak powerfully and accurately about how the church is being influenced by the culture? If you think so—if you think that all of this should be left to the professionals, to some kind of expert class or clergy—then you haven't been reading your Bible enough. You’ve left that to the expert class or clergy, which is exactly the problem we're see...

There are some people in the Christian church that say we ought not to expose false teachers or publicly name names. Rather, we should just focus on preaching the gospel. Question: Suppose your pastor got up one Sunday and told the congregation that they’d just found out that someone in the church had been exposing your kids to pornography and drugs. What would be your first question? “Who is this person pastor?!” Now suppose that ...

Lewis" joins Frank for a fascinating discussion that answers that question and gives you a behind-the-scenes look at the movie. Max becomes C.S. Lewis several times duri...

If God is all-good and all-powerful, why doesn’t He stop evil? Maybe it’s because an all-good and all-powerful God doesn’t actually exist! That’s what some atheists will claim. In this show, Frank addresses that claim and these questions: Does evil disprove God? If not, what is God’s purpose for evil? Why does God allow evil that seems to have no purpose? What is God’s ultimate solution to evil? This show offers one of th...

What is socialism and why doesn’t it work? In this special podcast, Frank shows that socialism doesn’t work because it ignores economics 101 in ten ways. It ignores basic truths about: Private Property (it drives economics) Rule of Law (necessary for a robust economy) Free Enterprise (increases value) Competition (motivates innovation & quality) Self Interest and Service (creates wealth, not greed) Adam Smith’s Inv...

In this special show done on Valentine’s day, Frank unpacks the difference between “being in love” and loving someone. Too many people think that once the feeling of “being in love” is gone that the relationship is over and they need to find someone else. But if we blindly followed our fleeting feelings we would blow up our lives and the lives of those around us. Love actually seeks what is best for the loved one and vows to behave...
