On my last ever Sin Boldly episode, I do one last look at how evangelicals regard Trump, an update on Notre Dame Cathedral, Pope Francis' half true Christmas message, and J.K. Rowling getting into all kinds of trouble.
On one of my last Sin Boldly episodes ever, I'm going to look at recent comparisons of Trump to Jesus, the Mormons $100 BILLION nest egg, a review of Marvelous Ms. Maisel, and perhaps an update on Greta Thunberg through the eyes of socialism.
This debate features Doug Pagitt and Joel McDurmon looking at the question of the Biblical view of social justice. Doug is a proud progressive who feels that the teachings of Jesus - and the whole Bible - leads us towards progressive politics. Joel, a theonomist, seeks to draw specially on the Law of God - including the Old Testament - to understand justice from a Biblical point of view. There is agreement and disagreement, but always charity and a lot of great content here. Enjoy, and many thanks to both speakers for coming to Houston for this fascinating conversation.
On the show today, I'm talking about uber-traditional Catholics, the problems with alternative energy, Pat Robertson's take on Trump's salvation and more.
On the show today, I'm looking at the dearth of new friends the average American makes, the hypocrisy of NBAers, Beto and gun control, transgendered prisoners, the granddaughter of Fred Phelps leaving Westboro Baptist, and a (likely) phony exorcist.
If Christians all love Jesus and America, why do American Christians seem to hate each other? Plus a look at the sanctuary city movement to fight abortion, a recent false allegation against white students, and a review of the Chinese Communist record against human beings for the past 70 years.
A look at Beth Moore's pitting Paul against Jesus, Greta's Thunberg's climate evangelism, Thom Yorke's climate hypocrisy and yet another Christian group being asked to leave a university campus.
A solo episode that looks at two articles rethinking church decline, an article on atheists attempting to pray at statehouses, Pete Buttigeig's defense of abortion, and the depravity of a fake (AI, social media, etc.) society.
I look at three articles to try to demonstrate how to think critically about issues and not accept headlines and even facts at face value. One looks at a letter a pastor sent to a same sex couple removing one from membership. Another looks at a poll that indicates most folks who get abortions are actually Christian. A third looks at a Rich Lowry article that tries to set the record straight on slavery.
An interview with architect Julien Meyrat on the worldview of architects and how that influences the profession, the future of the suburbs and urban living, and the state of the shopping mall...inspired by Stranger Things 3.
On this solo episode, I look at a stunning admission on the abortion front, a developing Church scandal, and a case study in why conservatives are skeptical about the advantages of socialism.
Why are we so fundamentally at odds with how our society should be ordered? I look at several big picture issues and articles that explain the gulf between capitalism and socialism, woke history and previous history, and whether or not Christianity is the proper grouding for American society at large.
The Sin Boldly Podcast is a combination of a radio show offered through KPFT 90.1 in Houston as well as teaching material from First Evangelical Lutheran Church in Houston. The content is apologetic, polemic, and tradition in its Christian worldview. It means to clearly convey the Christian view as opposed to others. All in love, of course!
This solo episode looks at the beginning of AI gods, church bodies becoming sanctuary churches, John Cooper's statement on apostasy, and recent comments from Dennis Prager on the LGBTQ movement.
On this show I look at a few essays I've recently written and also consider Mario Lopez' backtrack on some fairly mild statements that still managed to get him in hot water.
This episode looks at my recent vacation experiences at our national parks, a review of arguments against climate change action, and a quick look at some interesting stories.
Evan Friske joins me to look at arguments against vaccines and the recent Supreme Court case maintaining the appropriateness of crosses for war memorials.
A look at the rise of progressives and who should pay for our luxuries?
So I thought I lost this episode. I managed to forget to record it live, but eventually I was able to pull it off of KPFT's archive. This show is a review of the highlights of a recent radio debate on abortion which looks at the main arguments pro and con. I try to fill in what I think are the missing pieces. And yes, I get cut off right at the end!
A look at arguments used for slavery and how similar arguments are used for abortion. And how we went from one rainbow to another.
On the show today I look at a number of important court cases and decisions and the sad state of TV.
This solo episode looks at violence in the Bible, especially those troublesome portions of the Old Testament, the Nation of Islam's mythology, and some recent events including the NPR's new style guide when discussing abortion.
Apologies for the terrible audio the first time this was published!! It has been fished and is now ready to go.
Philosopher Evan Friske joins me to look at some of the basics of Philosophy. Who were the main philosophers and what did they contribute? How did we end up where we are now? What is the relationship to philosophy and theology? And what is the meaning of life??
We look at a number of news articles today. Stories of modern slavery, fostered children, and whether or not single motherhood is a good thing and why we have so much of it. We begin by looking at a reason for the popularity of socialism: the decline of civil commitments like those found in the church.
I look at a few recent essays as well as some news events on this episode. To take a broader look at the culture, I ask whether or not a "championship or bust" mentality has killed the joy of sports. I also look at reactions to the recent abortion laws, including Jim Carrey's grotesque artwork and examples of what Christians really do when being accused of only being "pro-life" up to the point of birth.
