    211 - SexBots, Robot Pastors with Christian Futurist, Mal Fletcher

    The future will bring about more than most are imagining. Did
    you know there’s a good chance the prostitution industry will be
    completely monopolized by SexBots within 30 years? Seen and
    heard from on BBC, NBC and other media outlets, Mal Fletcher
    has many subjects of expertise, including social futurism.
    Instead of Robocop, how about Robopastor?

    210 - Tribute to Pastor and Author, Jarrid Wilson (9/18/88 – 9/9/19)

    210 - Tribute to Pastor and Author, Jarrid Wilson (9/18/88 – 9/9/19)

    Jarrid Wilson took his life last year in September.  A few years back, he hosted this show while my wife and I took the place of “guests," sharing the effects my depression has had on our marriage while Jarrid shares his story of battling depression as well. Lots of laughs, lots of heartfelt introspection, while openly discussing and de-stigmatizing this common sickness that many endure.

    209 - Some Christians Don’t Believe God Knows the Future? (w/ Thomas Oord and Jack Hoey)

    209 - Some Christians Don’t Believe God Knows the Future? (w/ Thomas Oord and Jack Hoey)

    Thomas Oord  (ThomasJayOord.com) wrote a book entitled “God Can’t.”  It’s an articulate  presentation of Open Theism, a belief that supposes for freewill to exist, the future is unknowable, even to God.  So if God doesn’t know the future, this would mean limitations in his power which goes against what most believe about God.  At the same time, this posture is more suitable to make sense of all the pain in this world.   It goes like this: It’s not that God allows evil, but rather because He gave us freewill, He doesn’t know the evil we’ll do and thus can’t stop it.  This is an intriguing discussion in which Jack Hoey and I try to make sense of this theology as well as poke holes in it.  Although I do not hold this view, it’s certainly not as far-fetched as it may appear at first glance.

    208 - A Practical Discussion on Grieving During the Holidays & the future of PWNA Podcast

    208 - A Practical Discussion on Grieving During the Holidays & the future of PWNA Podcast

    “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” “Deck the Halls,” and “Holly Jolly Christmas” for many, but for others, it’s nothing but a “Blue. blue, blue blue Christmas.”  Many stories of grief have been shared on this podcast (Episodes 21,22,35,39,122,150) so I wanted to process the in’s and out’s of grief with a professional, especially pertaining to the holidays.  I sat down with a local therapist here in Charleston SC  for us to glean more understanding and guidance about interacting with those who are grieving.  What are the best ways to be supportive?  Are there times when it’s appropriate to push a bit?  What should one say (or not say)? There’s also some helpful information directed towards those listening who are currently grieving during the holidays.  Merry Christmas and we remember those who do not find it merry at all.

    207 - The Church Doesn’t Like Questions About Sexuality

    207 - The Church Doesn’t Like Questions About Sexuality

    The church should be notorious for welcoming questions, having conversations without the short fuses and pretense, and allowing for environments where people are comfortable with being brutally honest.  Because supposedly, we’ve been rescued by love and “perfect love casts out fear,” right?  So what do we have to be afraid about? Today’s guest had questions about sexuality and him merely having these questions was not welcomed by his church.  So Jonathan Foster wrote a book about his experience entitled “Questions About Sexuality that Got Me Uninvited from My Denomination.”   The church, the gay community, more understanding, possible unity.  At the very least, can we have a conversation?

    206 - Not So Fast, Wives Submit to Your Husbands, REALLY

    Today’s guest says “not so fast” in regards to last episodes liberal handling of wife to husband submission.  These verses, according to him, are clear and consistent enough to grapple with.
