God's Sovereignty and Man's Freedom (Part 2)

God's Sovereignty and Man's Freedom (Part 2)

The Bible teaches that God is sovereign. He has a plan for history and his plan will come to pass. Yet the Bible also seems to affirm that human beings have the power to follow their own wills. These ideas seem to create tension. How can both be true? Here, Lenny reviews Calvinism and Arminianism, which are the two primary ways Protestants have tried to reconcile God's sovereignty and man's freedom. He also discusses the idea of Middle Knowledge and why it may help solve the issue.

The Reformation: A Great Schism or Necessary Change?

The Reformation: A Great Schism or Necessary Change?


In this special edition of the Come Let Us Reason Together podcast, Lenny sits down with Reasons to Believe Senior Research Scholar Ken Samples to discuss the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. It was on October 31, 1517 Martin Luther nailed his famous 95 theses on the door of the Wittenberg church. That act launched one of the most significant changes to western civilization humanity has ever seen.

In this extended podcast, Ken and Lenny discuss the reasons for Luther’s grievances, why the Reformation made the impact it did, how the sharing of the Gospel was affected through the Reformers, as well as some of the criticisms and problems that emerged from dividing the church. Listen in to hear the entire conversation.

Romancing the Mind - Why Apologetics is Crucial for Women (Part 4)

Romancing the Mind - Why Apologetics is Crucial for Women (Part 4)

Women are crucial in service to the body of Christ. Women tend to pray more than men, tend to volunteer more, and attend service more, too. Most churches offer different ministries aimed at women, from Bible studies to cooking and craft workshops. Yet, there are very few women's classes aimed at teaching them how to develop their minds and thoughtfully engage the culture with the reasons for their faith. This is a glaring omission for both Christian women and the churches that serve them. Listen in as Lenny presents to a women's group and explains why women need to develop not only a strong spiritual relationship with God, but also a strong intellectual one as well.
