This solo episode looks at three topics: the Orlando shooting, an article on Social Justice as religion, and whether discernment is doing what I think it is. 

Sorry for the audio for the first 7+ minutes. I thought it was recording straight to the computer but alas, it was not.

This episode features a debate between yours truly and Fr. John Nelson, an Orthodox deacon who hosts the Facebook page "Christians for Bernie Sanders." We have a friendly debate about the Christian values and how the influences our political choices. We look at the military and foreign policy, taxation and economics, socialism at large, and, of course, abortion and marriage. How can a Christian who differs from Bernie Sanders so much support him? And is it possible he's right? 

**For some reason, only one channel recorded, so there's static in one ear and sound in the other. It's never done that before, and I couldn't fix it. Sorry!

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!

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. 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.
