The Gospel According to Star Trek - Part 1
Calling all nerds, it’s time to geek out! This week on the podcast we’re talking about Star Trek. Joining us is Kevin C. Neece, author of the book the Gospel According to Star Trek - the Original Crew. Don’t worry, we’re not finding hidden meanings to uncover the true Christian meaning behind the show and films but rather looking at the series from behind the lens of a Christian worldview. In this first segment, after a quick geek-out (including a comparison between the original storyline and the one found in the most recent theater releases), we discuss Gene Roddenberry’s faith and the impact upon his work. Be sure to share this with all your trekkie friends!
Can A Christian Smoke Pot, Part 2
Welcome back! It’s been quite a long time since I’ve been able to post a podcast, but I am back! After a few weeks of closing out the school year and moving back to Wisconsin, I’m glad to be back in the podcasting chair cranking out some new episodes. This week we pick up right where we left off with author Mark Ward and his book Can I Smoke Pot? In this final segment we compare marijuana with alcohol and also discuss possible medicinal benefits. We wrap things up with a quick discussion of how to answer issues like this that are not directly addressed in Scripture.
Can A Christian Smoke Pot?
Today is April 20 or 420 a time that has become associated with Marijuana smoking. As several states have legalized pot, Christians have begun to discuss the morality of its recreational use. Authors Tom Breeden and Mark L. Ward ask this question in the title of their book - Can I Smoke Pot? To tackle this question, Mark L. Ward joins us on the podcast. This week we discuss the larger question of how to apply a Biblical theology to this topic and look at how we can see this in light of the Word of God.
The Importance of the Resurrection - Pastor Jeremy Scott
This week we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, so on this episode of the Gospel Points podcast we focus on the importance of the resurrection. Many would agree that Jesus was a great moral teacher who inspired millions of people for thousands of years. Does it really matter if he actually rose from the dead? His teaching and his reputation will live on forever regardless. I ask this question and several others to Pastor Jeremy Scott of the Memorial Baptist Church in Verona, WI.
The Grieving Christian, Part 2
This week on the Gospel Points podcast we are again joined by Pastor Aaron White of the River Hills Community Church in Janesville, WI. We’re discussing Pastor White’s book, When Shadows Fall: The Grieving Saint and the Granite Promises of Romans 8. In this final segment we walk through the promises found in Romans chapter 8 or the "Great 38."
