The Bible vs Other Faiths—Which is From God? (Part 4)

The Bible vs Other Faiths—Which is From God? (Part 4) 

Christians hold that the Bible is God's revealed word given to us. But critics argue that the Bible was written by men and changed over the years to suit their purposes. Other faiths claims their sacred writings are inspired. Is there a way to tell? In this first session of our new "Christianity in the Hot Seat" series, Lenny will compare how the Bible stacks up against the claims of other sacred writings and why Christianity is the more reasonable faith.

The Resurrection: Fraud, Fable, or Fact (Part 2)

The Resurrection: Fraud, Fable, or Fact (Part 2)
Christianity has held the resurrection of Jesus as the central pillar of its faith. Take that away and the whole thing comes toppling down. It's unsurprising, then, that skeptics have targeted the resurrection accounts throughout the history of the Church. In this two-part talk, Lenny looks at the charges claiming the resurrection accounts were either forgeries intent to deceive their audiences or fables that grew to be believed and demonstrates why either position comes up short.

A Rational Approach to COVID-19 (Part 2)

As we enter the second month of shelter-in-place, people are asking "Just how dangerous is the coronavirus really?" In this interview, Lenny talks with Dr. AJ Roberts, who worked at the NIH for three years on the first SARS-coronavirus, to get clarity on what the virus is, just how dangerous it can be, and what we will be facing now that the initial wave of infections has crested.

The Sickness of Self - Discussion with Ken Samples (Part 2)

The Sickness of Self - Discussion with Ken Samples (Part 2)


The driveness of “self” has plagued humanity since the garden of Eden. Yet, from that time until now, God has called us to be self-less. To consider others “better than” ourselves. What it is this “sickness of self”? What drives it? And what does it look like when the Great Physician heals us of this? Are we more prone to selfishness in our culture of radical individualism? In this engaging discussion, Lenny is joined by Kenneth Samples of Reasons to Believe to discuss the Sickness of Self, how our society is rife with it, and what it means to love your neighbor more than yourself.

Authority, Revelation, and Scripture (Part 4)

It seems today there are as many different beliefs about spiritual matters as there are people that hold them. But Christians believe the Bible holds the authority on how we should relate to God and to one another. In this series, Lenny explains just why authority is essential in matters of faith, how God communicates through revelation, and why scripture can be trusted as the primary means of God providing guidance for our lives.
