We’ll be signing off this year by looking at the burden of proof that falls on the Christian and the atheist when one affirms/denies claims such as the universe began to exist.

Imagine you have multiple pieces of data or facts before you. How do you make sense of it? Well you could try and draw up a theory or explanation that best explains the facts at hand. Enter Inductive Arguments. For example the resurrection of Jesus Christ has many historical facts attached to it (like the empty tomb, the martyrdom of the disciples etc.) Did the disciples steal the body? Did they hallucinate? Maybe Jesus didn’t real...

Join us this time as we begin exploring the question of how to show Christianity is true. The central challenge is how can a Christian who may claim to have personal experience of God present to others that his/her experience is not delusional? What common grounds...

Last time we looked at the intriguing concept of ‘properly basic belief’ and what it means to us when we ask the question ‘how can I know that God exists’. In this episode we conclude the dialogue on how we can know Christianity is true by analyzing the role arguments play here. If I can know that God exists through the inner witness of the Holy Spirit then do I even need arguments? Aren’t they redundant? Well why don’t you tune in...

We are back with episode two of Natural Theology!! Throughout this series we explore in bite-sized format the question if there are any good arguments for the existence of God. Last time we discussed the self-authenticating inner witness of the Holy Spirit and the role it plays in our knowing that Christianity is true. But can it justify our belief in God even if there are arguments that counter it? Can our experience of God be som...

Theology was crowned the queen of sciences by Thomas Aquinas. In this second part we look at whether philosophy trumps theology by the magisterial use of reason or whether theology reigns as king over philosophy. Unpacking this question is none other than Dr. William Lane Craig, one of the world’s leading philosopher and theologian. Dr. Craig expounds on what it takes for a philosopher to become a theologian, what are the different...

Missing body cold cases have two aspects: a 'fuse' of events that uniquely lead up to the crime and 'fallout' of events because of the crime that will turn the world upside down for those involved. Just like decades old cold cases, the life of Jesus is a part of history that awaits inquiry to unpack the truth. What happens when J Warner Wallace, a former atheist and one of America’s foremost cold case detective who ...

How effective are arguments? It’s a question often raised towards the effectiveness of apologetics. But the question also touches upon the much important domain of enquiry: how do I know for sure God exists? Enter the self-authenticating witness of the Holy Spirit. In this one-off episode the SAFT Podcast duo makes a short, fun and casual return to look at apologetics arguments, how evangelism involves arguments, the role of person...

Science is king above all! That’s the notion prevalent across the atheistic spectrum. It’s also one that’s gaining traction among the laypeople. The reasoning is that since we can do physical tests and understand the natural tangible world and that since scientific discoveries better our life it must therefore be the greatest discipline – the pathway to truth. Often times this thinking hurls philosophy to the side leaving philosoph...

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 ...
