    Ep #57- Can I Believe Despite The Evidence?!

    We are back with episode two of Natural Theology!! Throughout this series we explore in bite-sized format the question if there are any good arguments for the existence of God. Last time we discussed the self-authenticating inner witness of the Holy Spirit and the role it plays in our knowing that Christianity is true. But can it justify our belief in God even if there are arguments that counter it? Can our experience of God be something as fundamental to our knowledge in the face of objections and arguments as our knowledge of our innocence/guilt in a situation? Join us as we explore this most fascinating question!

    Ep #55- Is Theology King Over Philosophy? (ft. Dr. William Lane Craig)

    Ep #55- Is Theology King Over Philosophy? (ft. Dr. William Lane Craig)

    Theology was crowned the queen of sciences by Thomas Aquinas. In this second part we look at whether philosophy trumps theology by the magisterial use of reason or whether theology reigns as king over philosophy. Unpacking this question is none other than Dr. William Lane Craig, one of the world’s leading philosopher and theologian. Dr. Craig expounds on what it takes for a philosopher to become a theologian, what are the different branches of theology and much more! He also responds to objections against philosophy raised by prominent Christian radio hosts. Tying it all at the end is Dr. Craig’s reply to a question sent in by the legendary Dr. Alexander Pruss! You can’t afford to miss this episode!!

    Ep #54- A Brand New Investigation About Jesus' Historic Impact! (ft. J Warner Wallace)

    Ep #54- A Brand New Investigation About Jesus' Historic Impact! (ft. J Warner Wallace)

    Missing body cold cases have two aspects: a 'fuse' of events that uniquely lead up to the crime and 'fallout' of events because of the crime that will turn the world upside down for those involved. Just like decades old cold cases, the life of Jesus is a part of history that awaits inquiry to unpack the truth. What happens when J Warner Wallace, a former atheist and one of America’s foremost cold case detective who has investigated several no-body homicide cases in which there was no crime scene, no physical evidence, and no victim's body sets out to investigate and uncover the life of Jesus without looking at the NT documents? Will he be successful? What will he find? And will the fuse and fallout from Jesus’ life show us that Jesus was indeed the most significant individual in human history?

    Ep #52- Is Philosophy Inferior To Science? (ft. Kenneth Samples)

    Ep #52- Is Philosophy Inferior To Science? (ft. Kenneth Samples)

    Science is king above all! That’s the notion prevalent across the atheistic spectrum. It’s also one that’s gaining traction among the laypeople. The reasoning is that since we can do physical tests and understand the natural tangible world and that since scientific discoveries better our life it must therefore be the greatest discipline – the pathway to truth. Often times this thinking hurls philosophy to the side leaving philosophy subject to misguided and disillusioned ridicule. Philosopher and theologian Kenneth Samples, who works alongside an astronomer, astrophysicist, biochemist at Reasons To Believe, points out that such thinking is akin to chopping off the branch one sits upon while aspiring to fly. Yup, that ridiculous!!
