Cross Examining ideas against the truth and Christianity.

    Your God is too Small

    Your God is too Small

    Well, this is going to be provocative. Frank says that your God is too small if you can’t understand why Jesus is the only way. Your God is too small if you can’t imagine that God would disagree with you on certain moral matters. Your God is too small if you can’t understand why God would kill a man for simply preventing the Ark of the Covenant from falling into the mud. This episode will help you comprehend who the true God really is.

    Jesus a Racist?

    Jesus a Racist?

    A “woke” pastor recently released a popular TikTok video charging Jesus with racism.  After all, in Mark 7 Jesus appears to call a Canaanite woman a “dog.”  On the face of it, that appears to be at least slander, if not racism.  What do we make of this?  Frank addresses that question as well as:



    Should we just take Christianity on blind faith?

    How should we respond to pastors blessing sexual immorality?

    And should United Airlines have a racial and gender quota for their pilots?  They just announced that they are planning on it!

    Return of the God Hypothesis PART 2 with Dr. Stephen Meyer

    Return of the God Hypothesis PART 2 with Dr. Stephen Meyer

    Dr. Stephen Meyer joins Frank for part 2 of the three major discoveries that comprise his excellent new book, Return of the God Hypothesis.  They discuss the evidence for



    The beginning of the universe

    The fine-tuning of the universe

    The information found in living things



    All of which points to an intelligent being.  Who is this Intelligent being?  The God of the Bible?  And what about the God of the Gaps objection?



    Frank and Steve touch on those and other questions.  In the meantime, make sure you get the book because there is so much more there

    Return of the God Hypothesis with Dr. Stephen Meyer

    Return of the God Hypothesis with Dr. Stephen Meyer

    Is science and religion at war? If so, why were the founders of modern science all theists, most Christians? Why did God as a cause fall out of favor for a while but is now returning? What about God of the gaps?



    Dr. Stephen Meyer joins Frank to discuss some major findings expressed in his excellent new book, Return of the God Hypothesis. Their far-reaching conversation includes answers to the questions just mentioned, plus:



    Why do the laws of nature exist? What are they? Do they actually cause anything?

    What three discoveries over the past century are causing the return of God's hypothesis?

    What evidence do we have that the universe had a beginning?

    Did the universe really come from nothing? Couldn’t it have come from pre-existing matter?

    Why say God caused it? Why not a multiverse or a quantum vacuum?



    This is only part 1. Come back next week when Dr. Meyer returns to discuss the evidence for the fine-tuning of the universe as well as the evidence for intelligence in life.

    You Can’t Make this Stuff Up!

    You Can’t Make this Stuff Up!

    How can we know that the New Testament writers are telling the truth?  Frank presents three lines of evidence to show that they didn’t make up the NT story:



     



    It has EMBARRASSING DETAILS that would not have been invented by those trying to pass off a lie as the truth.



     



    There is EMBEDDED CONFIRMATION between the gospel accounts that show the writers either were eyewitnesses or are citing independent eyewitness sources of the same events.



     



    The Jewish writers died EXCRUCIATING DEATHS when they could have saved themselves by staying with their Jewish beliefs and denying the Resurrection.



     



    There are many points in this show that you can share with your unbelieving friends.  Just ask them before you do: “If Jesus really rose from the dead to prove He is God, would you follow Him?"

    Can You Believe Something You’ve Never Seen?

    Can You Believe Something You’ve Never Seen?

    Many people say that they can’t believe in miracles because they’ve never seen one.  Is that a good reason to disbelieve in the miraculous?  Frank points out that you believe in a lot of things that you’ve never seen, and that miracles are exactly the kind of phenomenon that occurs rarely.  If they occurred more… well, you’ll have to listen.  So should we believe in the Resurrection of Jesus?  Frank gives four lines of evidence to show that the answer is yes.  In fact, it takes more faith to believe Jesus did NOT rise from the dead.  (Note: This podcast builds on the evidence presented in last week’s show.)

Too many ‘Wow’ moments to count

I first heard Frank Turek present the truth at Calvary Chapel Chino Hills and found his presence to be factual, sharp, well-constructed, logical, and utterly human. Now I’m a regular listener of his podcast and recommend anyone who wants the truth over all the intellectual babble and misinformation on the Internet, this podcast should be on your short list!
