How complex is our body? Highly, highly complex, even down to the cellular level! What seems to be the best explanation of this complexity? Evolutionary theories (theories that are purely natural withholding the possibility of supernatural intervention) and Intelligent Design theories (theories that allow for supernatural intervention) are at odds here. The former claims that pure chance is the best explanation and that this is oft...

Isn’t abortion a right of the women? If the purpose of life is to know God then isn’t euthanasia pursuable for someone who is brain dead? Why is God concerned with what consenting adults do in the bedroom? If no person is born sans-God’s intention, then what is gender dysphoria? Have we bifurcated the ‘person’ from the ‘body’ too much? Where do we as Christians stand on these issues? Should we voice our opinion or keep silent? Nanc...

Am I just my brain? How can we say we have an immaterial mind when we can control our actions and thoughts by stimulating our brain! Hasn’t science definitively shown that our brain is all there is? Maybe our brain is identical to our mind! Cambridge trained brain imaging scientist Dr. Sharon Dirckx (OCCA The Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics) differs. In this most intriguing of episodes Sharon converses with Jacob and shows ...

The question of the historical reliability of the Gospels is still very much alive. Hundreds of articles and videos that present robust defense, having stood the test of time, fill search results. But what about the underlying principles at play? Why are still objections raised? How has scholarship fared in responding to these? Why are critics ready to believe Josephus over Luke when Luke is considered a “historian of the highest r...

Veganism and Global Warming are hot topics (pun intended) now more than ever thanks to rising activism and political influence. So how does a Christian respond to it? Are we merciless and selfish because we eat meat? Are we ruthless towards our planet if we don’t engage in activism for global warming? Should a Christian who awaits the return of Christ be bothered if the world melts over today instead of tomorrow? Also, who has the ...

Alisa Childers, our first women guest on the podcast, who firsthand encountered Progressive Christianity recently authored Another Gospel? and brings to clear light the nuanced and heretical position Progressive Christianity espouses. Given the danger of this false ...

What if we consider Jesus to be just what many claim He is- a fictional character! What if we consider the biographies of His life, called the Gospels, as just mere fiction? Where does that lead us? Tom Gilson does exactly this in his latest book ‘Too Good To Be False’ which has taken the arena by storm. Tom goes on to show comprehensively that even if Jesus was mere fiction, He is so unlike any other on so many levels that it begg...

Global Youth Culture. Sounds pretty hefty. But what is it? Is it truly global? How influential is it? What are the things that make this culture distinct and identifiable? And most importantly, why does this matter to me! Well if you are a youth or someone who ministers among the youth this is relevant to you big time. Lukas Rueegger who has been ministering in Lebanon has encountered first hand GYC and has key insights to share. T...

Deuteronomy 18 is often highly contested as God proclaims the arrival of prophet like Moses. Is God talking about one prophet? Is He talking about a line of prophets? And most importantly, has anyone ever fulfilled such a profound proclamation? Is there any Biblical backing to the claim that Muhammad is a prophet like Moses? Finally, where does Jesus stand in all this! Big questions to be answered indeed. So here is Sam Shamoun dro...

We had addressed earlier with Dr Clay Jones on the podcast the question of why does God allow evil and suffering. But today we look at the problem of evil at a different angle narrowing in on the practical applicability and response it can elicit. Tune in as Piyush and Jacob dialogue why asking can God stop evil is critical too.

    The most important book out there that concerns a Christian is hands down the Bible. But how should we read a book so vibrant and complex? Can a common person hope to understand such a book? Isn’t it best that we listen to or read the sermons of great preachers? Does the current lockdown beckon us to reconsider how we approach Scripture and the place we attribute to it daily? Join us as Pastor Jerin Thomas, Global Missions Catalyst...
