This episode looks at Christmas reflections by people of three faiths: Jewish, Christian, and atheist. (Yes, atheists have faith.) There's also a slight detour in there about the logic behind arguing the pro-choice position because we aren't equipped to care for "unwanted" babies. A guest-free smattering, you might say. Merry Christmas season! 

Why the name “Sin Boldly”? Martin Luther wrote to his friend Philip Melanchthon in 1521: “If you are a preacher of mercy, do not preach an imaginary but the true mercy. If the mercy is true, you must therefore bear the true, not an imaginary sin. God does not save those who are only imaginary sinners. Be a sinner, and let your sins be strong [sin boldly], but let your trust in Christ be stronger, and rejoice in Christ who is the victor over sin, death, and the world.” To sin boldly, therefore, is not to seek unholy living, but to follow the course we believe the Bible demands even if the world is against us. And if and when we sin, trust in an even greater savior.

First Lutheran also publishes a daily podcast called The Scarlet Thread (https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-scarlet-thread/id1110938468?mt=2). This podcast is a reading of the appointed texts for the Two-Year Daily Lectionary. After two years, listeners will have heard most of the Old Testament once and most of the New Testament twice. If you are liturgically-minded and want a little more Bible in your life, this is a great podcast for you.

I was joined by Eric Hernandez and Spencer Hawkins to talk about the reasons that Eric could never be an atheist. After a bit of a late start and some technical difficulties, we had an interesting conversation. It focused on whether evolution can produce true beliefs or if atheists necessarily have a defeater for their own views, and then a look at substance dualism. You'll see I was outgunned, so I mainly let the experts do the talking. Learn more about Eric at www.erichernandezministries.com and check out Spencer's book here

What a pleasure it was to be joined by best-selling author Dr. Larry Schweikart to take a look at his own work and contrast it to Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States. If you're not familiar with it, Zinn's magnum opus is the virtual bible of left wing American history. Schweikart examines the nature of history and specific claims that Zinn and others make about America and asks if they're accurate. He also makes a passionate plea for American exceptionalism and looks at the pillars that make her so. Many thanks to Dr. Schweikart for being a guest on the show!

Alex and Carey from Abolish Human Abortion (AHA) stop by to discuss abolitionism. What are the differences between an abolitionist and a pro-lifer? What do they experience when they speak at abortion clinics (mills)? Why is abortion even wrong? Those are just a few of the interesting and thought-provoking questions we tackle when taking on the subject of abortion. Thanks to Alex and Carey for stopping in, especially on short notice! Learn more at www.abolishhumanabortion.com.

This solo episode looks at a phrase that is remarkably mainstream now: white supremacy. It seems if you're white and a little right of center, you're probably a white supremacist, even if you're not a Nazi or member of the KKK. Why has this phrase found a renaissance? What is meant by it? Is white supremacy really the definitional problem in America? There is so much that one could say, but I simply tried to summarize the meaning and offer what I think is really going on.
