A bit of a late release this week as we follow up our introductory episode on Christian apologetics. This episode we refute a presentation on atheism given by Dan Barker, a well known former pastor turned secular materialist. Dan Barker has debated the likes of James White, Doug Wilson, and Todd Friel and his arguments encompass many common rebuttals atheists give to the Gospel.
Throughout Mr. Barker's we look at the foundation he stands upon to make his case for a randomized universe and whether or not his arguments against the Triune God of Scripture pass the test of objective truth. Is it even consistent for an atheist like Dan Barker to appeal to an objective truth? We hope this episode exhorts our listeners to "always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have" (1 Peter 3:15)

This week we begin a series on apologetics, or how to defend our Christian faith. We transition into our topic by taking a look at an article that follows up on our "Shallow Oceans" episode. We stumbled upon an interview with the director of an upcoming documentary about the Hillsong United band. As a professing non believer, he discusses what draws him to Hillsong and their music.
Our main topic for this episode is the exegesis of Romans 1. As we look into this chapter we uncover what Paul is saying about the nature of man and how it applies to our culture today. Before we can defend our faith we must understand the nature of our audience and how to best convey the gospel message to them.

No clever titles this week, just straight Gospel talk. This week we welcome our first guest: our Pastor Ben Ritz. If you've listened to our first 10 episodes (THANK YOU!!) this is a great culmination to the topics we've discussed. We sought Ben's opinion on various topics related to what a biblical church should look like: What does Gospel-Centered mean? What is the purpose of meeting? What should biblical worship include? How should we view membership to a church body?
We pray this episode gets the amount of listens it deserves. It may not be a flashy topic but we truly believe this is some of the deepest, most honest talk about the church body that we've put out. As always, thank you for listening and please send any and all feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org
This week we embraced the help of a few listeners to fuel this week's episode. In the past week we've been confronted with a few issues that we thought were important to address:
Medical Marijuana: We received a listener email asking about the usage of medical marijuana for the Christian. Is it ok? Is it a sin? Is the line more grey than black?
Hypostatic Union: A common interpretation of Phillipians 2:7 is that Jesus emptied himself of his divinity while on earth. But is that what the scripture really says? If we are to truly believe that Jesus is God, then can we really also simultaneously believe that he was dependent upon the Holy Spirit for his divine works?
The Ramp: We follow up the Hypostatic Union discussion with an audio clip of the false teaching in the Church about Jesus' divinity. The popular youth movement The Ramp may be filled with an abundance of emotion, but is their Christology on point?
A special thank you to our listeners for your support! Your support has been a true blessing to our show and we appreciate any and all of your feedback! Email us at email@example.com..... Enjoy Episode 10!!
