    Is the Watchmaker Illustration A Strong Argument?

    Is the Watchmaker Illustration A Strong Argument?

    Who watches the Watchmaker?
    In this week's episode of Apologetics 201, we dive head first into the arguments for the existence of creation. Was it, as William Paley put it, an intelligent, benevolet God who like a Watchmaker put the mechanism together? Was it as Darwin purposed a series of changes over time left to chance? Was it as Alan Moore purposed in Watchmen of a Makerless Mechanism that God can create within? Was it as HP Lovecraft purposed with Cosmic Indifference that the mechanisms of the universe move with no god or Uncaused Cause putting them into motion and therefore the universe is a machine that doesn't care about you?
    Aslo, is there a better way to do apologetics then just trying to win arguments?

    What is the Role of Faith, Reason, and the Holy Spirit in Apologetics?

    What is the Role of Faith, Reason, and the Holy Spirit in Apologetics?

    With Christianity being a religion, faith plays a big part in our daily lives. From major beliefs within the Christian faith, like the virgin birth of Jesus to, to daily living, faith plays a crucial role. How does faith play a part in apologetics? As our Helper, what does the Holy Spirit do? How does reason play into the equation as we discuss things that are in the realm of the supernatural. Join me as I reject on my research this week digging into verses like Hebrews 11:1 and 1 Peter 3:15 for Scripture guidance.

    Wait, What Does "Apologetics" Mean Again?

    This episode is a rebroadcast.
    What does the word "apologetics" mean and how is it relevant to Christians today? As we begin Apologetics 201, we go back to the original series for a refresher on what this critical word means.

    The Three Year Anniversary Special!

    The Three Year Anniversary Special!

    Happy birthday My Seminary Life!
    In this year's birthday special, I sit down with Dr. Jonathan Roy of Trevecca Nazarene University to discuss his dissertation on the role shame has on counselors. It is understandable that those stepping into a counseling environment to receive help may feel some shame in their life, but what about those who are providing the help? What are the mental health professionals to do when they feel unqualified or inadequate to help a person? Dr. Roy walks us through his dissertation exploring those topics. He also gives us helpful definitions to understand the difference between shame, guilt, and humiliation, and why being self-aware is so crucial for a counselor.

    It Can't Rain All the Time

    What's in a name?
    In today's episode, we bring Celebrate March to a close with a look at my name. Yes, it is my birthday as well this month, and although I do not have the influence the rest of the people I highlighted this month have had, I still think there is an interesting origin behind my name. So strap in as I take you to the magical land of 1993 to discuss the films Dragon: The Story of Bruce Lee and the iconic 90s film The Crow. We also turn to the etymology of the name "Brandon" and see what Urban Dictionary has to say to understand the meaning behind my name.

    The Clear is the Goal

    Happy birthday L. Ron Hubbard!
    Who is your favorite sci-fi writer? As we Celebrate March, we now turn our attention to pulp fiction writer and creator of Scientology L. Ron Hubbard and his work "Dianectics." How does someone go from sci-fi writer to leader of a new religion? What is the science in Scientology? What is the aim of Scientology and Dianetics? In this episode, we cover all of that and I give some of my thoughts on pseudo-psychology within Christianity.
