Defending Christianity Podcast

Defending Christianity Podcast

The message of the Gospel is attacked every day by restless efforts and empty philosophies of this world. That is why Defending Christianity isn’t about making meaningless arguments or attempting to provoke empty debates– it is about preserving the redeeming message of the cross of Christ by using logic and reason to communicate why Christianity best explains reality. New episodes are released fortnightly on Thursdays at 10 AM Central. For suggestions on episode coverage, email levi@defendingchristianity.org! Also, please check out the Defending Christianity Blog (defendingchristianityblog.org) for articles on all things related to Christianity and Apologetics! **Season 2 premiering August 12, 2021

Many might be surprised to hear that there is a lot of debate surrounding the messages of Jesus and Paul. Some scholars will attest that the two messages are at odds with one another.

Specifically, in relation to the Apostle Paul, Dr. Pate has written books inc...

The culture's hostility toward God, Christians, and the Bible has rapidly increased in the last 20-30 years. This has caused confusion in the Church concerning how it engages. Lucky for us, there’s been a game-changer of a book written on the topic of cultural engagement to help the Church see what biblical cultural engagement looks like. The book is Culture Intelligence: Living for God in a Diverse, Pluralistic World and was w...

Why should we even care about the culture’s ever-increasing skepticism about God, Christianity, and the Bible? If you’re a parent this should be easy to answer. You will one day, if you haven’t already, send your child out into the world where they will be exposed to this culture. Don’t you think it’s pretty important that before you send them out on their own to equip them with logical reasons for why Christianity is true and good...
