This solo episode looks at the renewed interest in exorcism and asks if there aren't far scarier things than demonic possession, a rare, but media-friendly occurrence. We also look at why those who are "spiritual but not religious" experience higher depression rates and the latest, greatest Contemporary Christian worship song about God's reckless, crazy, insane, ridiculous and absurd love. I know, icky, right?
This is the audio from a debate hosted by First Evangelical Lutheran Church on God and the Problem of Evil. Houston Community College professors Evan Friske and Brian Deer square off on how the "Triple O God" (omniscient, omnibenevolent, and omnipotent) can exist while so much evil remains in the world. This is a formal debate that allows for equal time among the participants. About 200 were in attendance, including many college students, so it was a great night to introduce the next generation to the world of debate.
For some reason, my lapel mic did not pic up on the recording, so I am hard to hear at times. Apologies for the mishap!
A solo show that looks at Cory Booker's disturbing line of questioning to a Secretary of State candidate, Billy Graham's marriage, and whether God and the Church are in competition with one another.
This solo episode begins with a response to a quote from author Kurt Vonnegut that often makes the rounds on social media. In the quote, he asks why the Beatitudes are not on the walls of the Pentagon or courthouses, seemingly chastising Christians for "only" adoring the Ten Commandments. Its a good example of "too clever by half" atheistic rhetoric. I also look at a number of megachurch-related topics.
A solo episode. A look at conversion therapy, Perry Noble's (probably unwise) return to the pastoral office, and the good and bad Justin Bieber's Easter's message.
