    Ep: 34 - Can Christian Boys be Boys in the #MeToo Era?

    In the Me Too era, have we really advanced male-female relationships in the church and what are we teaching our boys in regards to how to respect women? Do biblical church teachings in themselves hold us back? Dave Willis, speaker and relationship coach as well as author of the book "Raising Boys Who Respect Girls" joins Mark and Dave to discuss.

    Ep: 32 - "The Problem with Christian Celebrity"

    We put them on the pedestal and then knock them down.  Mark and Dave return to the airwaves after a one year hiatus to discuss the latest issues surrounding people who are thrust into the Christian spotlight because they have a stage, a pulpit or a microphone - recently with the fall of comedian John Crist and the departure from Christianity of author and speaker Josh Harris.

    Ep: 31 - "Don't Let the Vestibule Hit You on the Way Out" - When Do You Know It's Time to Change Churches?

    Ep: 31 - "Don't Let the Vestibule Hit You on the Way Out" - When Do You Know It's Time to Change Churches?

    Mark and Dave have talked about church hopping in the past, but this is a different story - sometimes, it's okay to move on from your current church.  But when? And why? We all know you get out of things what you put into them, but when do you determine you're at the wrong church and you're just not getting what you need to grow and build your faith? Is it selfish? All of this and more (much more) discussed in this latest edition of Faith Busters.

    Ep: 30 - "Losing Your Religion 101" and Billy Graham

    After a multi month hiatus, the boys (Mark and Dave) are back for a look at how churches need to be more engaged in helping the transition for teenagers from high school to college in "Losing Your Religion 101" and the battle parents wage to keep their kids "faithful" at the University level.  Mark and Dave also look at the passing of Billy Graham and the impact he made on the religious landscape.

    Ep: 29 - "Free to be Religious" - Are we really in danger of losing our religious liberty?

    Ep: 29 - "Free to be Religious" - Are we really in danger of losing our religious liberty?

    When you look at the world around us and the countries where Christians are being persecuted, or at the very least having their rights taken away - do we really need to be fighting for religious liberty in a country that, for the most part, protects us?  Is there a dearth of religious liberty in the U.S.?  Are we fighting a problem that doesn't exist? Mark and Dave discuss it on this edition of Faith Busters.
