Hank Hanegraaff, host of the Bible Answer Man broadcast and the Hank Unplugged podcast, reflects on the difficult-to-imagine reality that on Friday (September 24, 2021), “House Democrats united behind legislation [H.R. 3755]…enshrining in federal law a virtually unlimited right to kill a baby through all nine months of pregnancy” (National Review). The naturalist philosopher John Stuart Mill—a religious skeptic— said, “Bad men need...

Hank Hanegraaff, president of the Christian Research Institute and host of the Bible Answer Man broadcast, reacts to Nancy Armour’s call in USA Today for another boycott. She says “NCAA and leagues shouldn't play big games in Texas.” Why? Because Texas governor Greg Abbott opposes the painful killing of innocent preborn human beings. She opines that we ought to be “champions of science, history, and critical thinking,” while ca...

Hank Hanegraaff, the host of the Bible Answer Man broadcast and the Hank Unplugged podcast, notes that on September 11, 2021, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America furthered its slide into illiberal liberalism with the installment of their first transgender bishop. This individual will oversee about 200 congregations within one of the largest Protestant denominations in the United States—a denomination boasting 3.3 million mem...

Hank Hanegraaff is joined by J. Warner Wallace to discuss his new book Person of Interest: Why Jesus Still Matters in a World that Rejects the Bible. As a former atheist, Wallace understands why people would be skeptical about the significance of Jesus in our world today. When a pastor claimed that Jesus was the most significant figure in history, Wallace’s experience as a Cold Case Detective wouldn’t let him simply dismiss the cla...

Hank Hanegraaff, host of the Bible Answer Man broadcast and the Hank Unplugged podcast, reflects on an excellent article by Cole Aronson, “In Defense of Motherhood.” Aronson reacts to the Department of Health and Human Services having replaced the moniker “mothers” with the phrase “birthing people.” A biological reality distinctive to mothers is in process of erasure. It isn’t enough that biological males compete against biological...

Hank Hanegraaff, host of the Bible Answer Man broadcast and the Hank Unplugged podcast, received an image of his new pre-born grandchild and reflects on the president’s recent words, “I don’t agree” with “those who believe life begins at the moment of conception.” The most powerful human being in the free world no longer follows the science.

Hank Hanegraaff, host of the Bible Answer Man broadcast and the Hank Unplugged podcast, reflects on the heroic, Christ-honoring actions of Todd Beamer on Flight 93, September 11, 2001, who helped prevent the Muslim hijackers from crashing the Boeing 757 into the United States Capitol. Beamer’s source and impetus were the very Creator who made us all icons of Himself.

Hank Hanegraaff, host of the Bible Answer Man broadcast and the Hank Unplugged podcast, reflects on the fact that with the passing of time—twenty years since September 11, 2001—we have become complacent to the Islamic terrorism that spawned the Manhattan massacre. Some have forgotten—others are blithely unaware—that Islam is the only significant religious system in the history of the human race with a sociopolitical structure of la...

Hank Hanegraaff, host of the Bible Answer Man broadcast and the Hank Unplugged podcast, shares that when his friend and publisher Jack Countryman asked him to write on peace, he considered it a daunting task. Not because he’s not experienced peace. Rather, because—as St. Paul explains—“the peace of God transcends all understanding.” How does one explain what transcends all understanding? The gospel of peace is a preview of the prom...

Hank Hanegraaff, host of the Bible Answer Man broadcast and the Hank Unplugged podcast, shares another profound letter from his sister Jobje, as she continues her arduous journey through pancreatic cancer treatment. “Each morning I eagerly look outside before the sun rises to reveal an absolutely beautiful scene. A white, thick mist hovers in the distance over the yet unplowed fields…. This mist which has brought by night the silen...

Hank Hanegraaff, host of the Bible Answer Man broadcast and the Hank Unplugged podcast, reminds us that Islam advances not only by sword but, as the late Libyan leader Muammar al-Qaddafi boasted, by migration without assimilation. Indeed, said al-Qaddafi, “Allah will grant Islam victory in Europe—without swords, without guns, without conquests.” His point was that a civilization that is becoming Islamic demographically will inevita...

Hank Hanegraaff, the host of the Bible Answer Man broadcast and the Hank Unplugged podcast, observes that the moral evils we see happening in the world, including horrendous events in Afghanistan and the ongoing holocaust of abortion on demand, as well as natural evils like hurricanes, all cry out for an explanation. It may seem as though there are many possible responses to this problem. In reality, however, there are only three b...

Hank Hanegraaff, the host of the Bible Answer Man broadcast and the Hank Unplugged podcast, reminds us that it is scientifically correct to say that an individual human life begins at conception. The human nature of a human being from conception to old age is not a mere metaphysical contention but a scientific fact. While an embryo does not have a fully developed personality, an embryo does have full personhood from the moment of c...

Hank Hanegraaff, the host of the Bible Answer Man broadcast and the Hank Unplugged podcast, asks what will be the fate of American and Afghan allies left captive behind enemy lines in Afghanistan. Tragically, the answer is borne out by history. Recall that precisely seven years ago, Mosul, Iraq fell. Muslim fighters thereafter captured village after village. Men were executed. Women and girls taken as slaves, with the sanction for ...

Hank Hanegraaff, the host of the Bible Answer Man broadcast and the Hank Unplugged podcast, reflects on what could cause someone to blow themselves up and kill so many others in the process. According to the Qur’an, women are promised to suicide bombers as soon as they depart this life. And these women, known as houris, do not sleep, get pregnant, menstruate, spit, blow their noses, or ever get sick, and these “good and lovely, bux...

Hank Hanegraaff, the host of the Bible Answer Man broadcast and the Hank Unplugged podcast, reflects on the appointment of Harvard’s new Chief Chaplain atheist Greg Epstein. He is the author of Good without God and somehow knows with certainty that there is no life after death, and that we should not look to God for answers—rather we should look to him. Much has changed in Harvard’s four-hundred-year history. Consider Harvard’s ori...

Hank Hanegraaff, the host of the Bible Answer Man broadcast and the Hank Unplugged podcast, shares a profound letter from his sister Jobje as she continues through the arduous trial of pancreatic cancer treatment. Psalm 139 has been Jobje’s favorite Psalm—what she describes as a spiritual birth certificate summarizing what each of us can expect as we travel from the start of life to its very end. Jobje’s name in the Dutch language ...

Hank Hanegraaff, the host of the Bible Answer Man broadcast and the Hank Unplugged podcast, recently broke the trophy that he won for coming in first place in a charity golf tournament. His initial disappointment quickly diminished as he remembered that our treasures on earth will pale in comparison to our treasures in heaven. Another reminder to set our sights on the life to come and live our lives for an audience of one.
