In this episode, Pastor McClanahan discusses the controversial subject of abortion and its effects with Dr. Jim Lamb of Lutherans for Life. The wide-ranging conversation looks at the question of when life begins, post-abortive counseling, abortion in the case of the mother's health, the role of the Gospel concerning this issue and much more. This episode is a great primer for those who aren't sure what to think of the issue and a review for those who have studied it already.

This episode explores whether or not the soul exists. Many Christians assume it does, but atheists absolutely cannot. For in the naturalist or materialist worldview, only phsical things exist. By the way, do dogs have souls? You might be surprised at the answer. Thanks to Eric Hernandez for lending his time and mind to the topic!

Tom Peeler drops in again to continue the conversation from Episode 2. Observing that we exist and that there are certain laws of logic, we work to understand the implications of those observations, i.e. what kind of being could bring this about? We conclude by logically inferring the characteristics of such a being. This sets the stage perfectly for exploring the God that is revealed in the Bible...which we'll get to next time. First things first!

Since trilogies are convenient media bundles, consider this show the completion of a same-sex marriage trilogy. This episode focuses on a somewhat obscure, but probably soon-to-be-cited Supreme Court case from 1983. The case looks at how and why the Supreme Court ruled against Bob Jones University continuing to maintain its tax exempt status after banning interracial marriage. (We agree with the Supreme Court, by the way.) Of particular importance is the language used in the decision and an examination if such language could be used today. The purpose of this episode is to get ahead of arguments relating to the tax exempt status of religious organizations in the future.

This show zeros in on an article that went viral after the Supreme Court's decision on same-sex marriage. Written by Mark Oppenheimer for Time Magazine, the article argues for the end of tax exemption for non-profits. This show will go through it line by line, challenging his assumptions and defending the work of non-profits, especially religious organizations. If this is the next battle that religious non-profits could face, this podcast will help you get ahead of the arguments and recognize them when they come.

Recorded soon after the Supreme Court's landmark ruling, this show focuses on the nature of marriage and the defense of the Church's understanding of it. This show does contain candid discussion about married life, so parents may want to listen to it before sharing it with young children.

In this episode, Pastor M - technical difficulties with the music and all - offers a brief introduction to the "minimal facts" argument for the resurrection. Developed primarily - or most fully - by Dr. Gary Habermas, the minimal facts argument uses a baseline approach to paint the deniers of the resurrection into a corner. There is also a word on the tyranny of the tithe.

This debate was hosted by First Lutheran on April 18, 2015. Featuring trial attorney and noted atheist Geoff Berg and Christian apologist Tom Peeler, the debate focuses on what can be used to build a case for the resurrection and why it is reasonable to believe Jesus rose from the dead.

Pastor M. and Christian apologist reak down the moral argument for God's existence. Eric is an experienced debater in the Houston area and considers the most common objections to this argument for God's existence.

Pastor M. offers a brief summary of good reasons to believe the New Testament documents we have are what the authors wanted us to have. Oh, and a quick word about megachurches.

In the second episode of The Sin Boldly Podcast, Tom Peeler and Pastor M. discuss the existence of God by using the most minimal observation possible, our own existence. Tom is the president of the local Reasons to Believe chapter in Houston.

In his first podcast with KPFT 90.1 FM in Houston, Pastor Evan McClanahan introduces the podcast and takes a look at this year's Pew Research Poll. You know, the poll findings that show fewer Americans are Christian are more and more are not affiliated. The poll findings that make most pastors curl up in the fetal position in the corner of their office for an entire week. Pastor M. offers some legitimate - and not so legitimate - reasons why Americans are leaving church behind.

In this facsinating lecture, Dr. James Tour, one of the world's foremost experts in the fields of chemisry and nanotechnology, offers his thoughts on evolution at the molecular level.
