    In conversation with Digital Gnosis (Nathan Ormond)

    Nathan is a fascinating guy. He grew up non-religious, briefly became a fundamentalist Christian (while also undergoing some personal turmoil), deconstructed and fully left that, spent a year or two severely critiquing arguments for Christianity, but as of recent he's now tentatively calling himself a Christian again but isn't sure it's *literally* true (just a good moral code/standard to live by). All the while getting deep into philosophy of religion along the way. Like I said, a pretty fascinating guy. Hope you enjoy!

    Boundaries

    Boundaries

    What are "boundaries?" How do you define what's inside and outside your boundaries? For Christians, is it "Christ-like" to have boundaries and in what way should you hold them if so? These are the sort of things I was trying to wrap my head around when discussing this topic.

    Here's the original blog post: https://www.robertlwhite.net/life/boundaries/

    Live stream: Randal Rauser (Christian) and Counter Apologist (Atheist) Discuss the Resurrection

    Live stream: Randal Rauser (Christian) and Counter Apologist (Atheist) Discuss the Resurrection

    I had the pleasure of hosting an informal discussion between theologian and apologist Randal Rauser and The Counter Apologist, a prominent atheist/skeptic blogger, about the evidence for Jesus' resurrection. Near the end, I even got to take my moderator hat off for a second and have a bout with CA for twenty minutes or so.

    Here is my post-discussion blog post focusing on a few points of particular interest:

    Epistemology: Pastoral Advice

    Epistemology: Pastoral Advice

    In this episode, I take a break from the main sequence of epistemology and instead give some advice to Christians who are currently deconstructing their faith.

    But first, if you haven't listened to my recent miracles chat with two ex-Christians, check that out! https://pca.st/lkdbkl1h

Open your mind

Here you have your guide helping you sort out the big questions...and not in a spoon-fed way.

I am personally better off listening to this podcast. I don’t feel so alone in my personal journey in figuring out what I believe, but I also don’t feel forced into his beliefs. He’s like one of those those super considerate but objective friends that just wants to help find out the truth, or whatever is closest. What, you don’t have one of those friends? Rare, I know.

Very cozy

I feel like I’m just chatting with a good friend about “deep stuff.” Almost as if I know him...
