    S2E29 | Is Christianity Dangerous and Delusional? LIVE at the University of Central Florida

    S2E29 | Is Christianity Dangerous and Delusional? LIVE at the University of Central Florida

    The late physicist, philosopher, and atheist Victor Stenger once said, "Science flies you to the moon. Religion flies you into buildings." This is a popular notion today, especially in the West where Christianity and the Bible are often blamed for anti-scientific superstitions, terrorism, racism, and sexism, among other maladies. But is this correct? Abdu confronts these tough objections during a 2023 address to a packed room of college students at the University of Central Florida. Check back in 2 weeks for the lively Q&A that followed!

    S2E28 | Rob Bowman Refutes Bart Ehrman’s Arguments Against Jesus’ Divinity, Part 2

    Recently, Dr. Bart Ehrman sat down and attempted to refute cherished Christian beliefs about the divinity of Jesus. Did he succeed? Dr. Rob Bowman says no! Join us for the second half of this exhilarating conversation as Dr. Bowman and Abdu discuss why Jesus was really crucified and whether the forgiveness of sins Jesus offers proves that he considered himself God.
    Dr. Rob Bowman is an apologist, biblical scholar, author, editor, and lecturer. He is also President of the Institute for Religions Research, which researches and responds to some of the most difficult objections leveled against Christianity by other religious or anti-religious movements. 
    If you would like to watch the YouTube clip we responded to, you can check that out on Alex O'Connor's channel, or go to Jesus Never Claimed to be God ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C96FPHRTuQU ) . For the full interview, go to Did Jesus Even Claim to be God? Bart Ehrman Says No.... ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2STiabRV8TE )

    A few of Dr. Bowman's books were mentioned during this episode. These included his book co-authored with J. Ed Komoszewski, Putting Jesus in His Place: The Case for the Deity of Christ (Kregel, 2007), Jesus' Resurrection and Joseph's Visions: Examining the Foundations of Christianity and Mormonism (Deward Publishing, 2020), and Faith Has Its Reasons (IVP, 2006), co-authored with Ken Boa.

    Recently, Dr. Bart Ehrman sat down and attempted to refute cherished Christian beliefs about the divinity of Jesus. Did he succeed? Dr. Rob Bowman says no! Join us for the first half of this exhilarating conversation as Dr. Bowman and Abdu discuss whether Jesus identified himself as God in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke, and whether those Gospels contradict the Gospel of John on this matter.
    Dr. Rob Bowman is an apologist, biblical scholar, author, editor, and lecturer. He is also President of the Institute for Religions Research, which researches and responds to some of the most difficult objections leveled against Christianity by other religious or anti-religious movements.
