In this episode, we look at Dr. Alister McGrath's description of the Pelagian controversy. Then we begin a study of Pelagius himself, by starting to read a letter he wrote in 413. Hopefully this helps us see the benefit of looking at primary sources when we look at a topic like this, instead of depending on the opinion of others and secondary sources.

In this episode we complete our review of Pastor Jeff Durbin's sermon. With the rise of public resistance and revolt against the COVID vaccine mandate among police officers, firefighters and other public employees, this issue is becoming more and more relevant. We as Christians need to be clear on our stance on this, and not divide the body of Christ unnecessarily. We continue in our respect for Pastor Jeff's position on th...

In this episode I begin a review of Pastor Jeff Durbin's sermon entitled "A Christian Response to Mandatory cookies". In this review I try to make the point that whether you choose to take the vaccine or not, it should be a matter of personal choice, and pastors should not promote a context where Christians are made to feel guilty or have their consciences held captive based on the choice they make.

In Part two, we conclude our review of an interview by Sean McDowell with Dr. William Lane Craig discussing his new book about the "historical Adam" and how he thinks that Genesis 1-11 is mytho-history. We continue to explore the presuppositional nature of Dr. Craig's framework & proposal and the slippery slope it creates for one's entire view of the Bible.

In this new episode, we look at an interview Dr. Craig did with Sean McDowell on his new book, The Quest for the Historical Adam. We begin to look at the concept of "mytho-history" and the slippery slope of relegating portions of the Bible as myth in order to make them acceptable to the unbelieving scientific community.

Trying to get views, likes, downloads and website visits, slowly but surely took me over and had me in a bad place.
