Christian History Series #2: Are We Living in the Matrix? (Part 3)

Christian History Series #2: Are We Living in the Matrix? (Part 3)

As Christianity gained more and more adherents in the second and third centuries, another threat rose against it. This time, instead of persecuting from without, new cults sprang up threatening to corrupt it from within. The most prevalent of these were the various forms of Gnosticism, each of which denied the reality of the physical world and held up the spiritual as a higher level of being. In this session, Lenny will discuss the tenets of Gnosticism and show why the early church held that God is God of the material world—including our bodies and our biology—as well as the spiritual!

Christian History Series #1: Eleven Breaking into the Upside-Down (Part 6)

Christian History Series #1: Eleven Breaking into the Upside-Down (Part 6)

The first Christians were part of a world that was so different from our own that we would hardly recognize it. Not only did they battle persecution and discrimination, but the very values we now take for granted — like individuals being equal — were considered strange and dangerous. Rome saw the teachings of Christianity as a threat to their culture and they were right. The eleven apostles took the Gospel of Jesus and broke through the upside-down culture of ancient Rome to establish a new way of thinking, paying for it with their blood.

Building the Canon: Is the Bible Missing Books? (Part 6)

Building the Canon: Is the Bible Missing Books? (Part 6)
Christians believe the Bible is God’s word given to us in 66 books, each divinely inspired. But just how did we end up with those books? Why not more or fewer? And what about all those “missing Gospels” we hear about? In this series, Lenny takes on some of the popular objections and shows why we can be sure only these specific books from the Old and New Testaments are authoritative for Christians today.

Is the Christian God Immoral? (Part 5)

Skeptics will charge that the Bible contains passages that promote slavery, sexism, and genocide. But how can the true God be sexist? How should we understand commands given in the Old Testament? Why didn't God prohibit slavery if it's such an abhorrent practice? In this podcast series, Lenny shows why the charge that the God of the Bible is immoral doesn’t make sense.
