The Trouble with "Trusting the Science" (Part 2)

The Trouble with "Trusting the Science" (Part 2)

We've all heard the admonishment to "trust the science" in various situations. But is demanding faith in science while dismissing faith in religion truly rational? In this episode, Lenny Esposito tackles the distinctions between faith, belief, and knowledge and offers specific examples of where the tenets of the Christin faith not only proved more accurate than the invocation of science during the last century, but also proved to be more humane.

Separating Science from Scientism (Part 3)

Separating Science from Scientism (Part 3)

Atheist Richard Dawkins claims that "scientists get to work and solve problems" while those of faith offer nothing to help advance humanity. Stephen Hawking says the universe doesn't need God; it can make itself. What these famous scientists have in common is a belief in scientism, not science. With all the talk of “trusting the science,” it becomes crucial to learn the difference between what is knowledge and what is a faith statement that eliminates all other forms of knowledge. Lenny shows you how to recognize scientism in our latest podcast.

The Origin and Nature of Western Science (Part 2)

The Origin and Nature of Western Science (Part 2)

There’s a popular trope that science is somehow antithetical to Christian belief. Not only is this not true, it is a well-established fact that without Christianity the modern practice of science wouldn’t exist. Indeed, it was Christian assumptions and motivations that birthed today’s modern scientific enterprise. Listen in as Lenny explores the intimate relationship between Christianity and science.

The End of Evil Through the Death of God (Part 2)

The End of Evil Through the Death of God (Part 2)

One of the most challenging questions Christians face is "Why Ddoes God allwow evil in this world?" Most of the time, the person vocingin that objection never talks about the most evil act in human history: putting the sinless Creator to deth on a cross. As Lenny concludes his four-part series on the resurrection, he examines how Christianity and the crucifixion specifically provide a solution to the problem of evil that all other worldviews lack and why through Jesus alone you can find comfort in times of suffering.

Double Vison: Seeing Jesus's Second Coming in the First (Part 2)

Double Vison: Seeing Jesus's Second Coming in the First (Part 2)

Christians have historically held that Jesus not only came to be our redeemer through his sacrifice, but he will also come again in glory to rule and reign in righteousness. While this was a mystery to the Old Testament prophets, it has been revealed to his church. In this talk, Lenny explores how the second coming of Jesus is foreshadowed even in the cricifixion account.

The Crucifixion as Tangible History (Part 2)

The Crucifixion as Tangible History (Part 2)

In thinking about Jesus’s death, it can become easy for us to distance ourselves from events that we may believe but are over-familiar with. The historical can take on a fictional quality. However, we must remind ourselves that the crucifixion, burial, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth was really real. In this study, Lenny examines the historical evidence of Jesus’s passion that forms the foundation of our faith.

The End of Humanity (Part 2)

The End of Humanity (Part 2)

The crucifixion of Jesus sits at the center of the Christian faith. It also marks the end of humanity. What does that mean, exactly? In this lesson, Lenny explains how the word "end" can convey a thing’s ultimate purpose as well as its final outcome. Join us as we explore how the crucifixion not only displays the ultimate example of evil in sinful creatures putting their holy Creator to death, but also sets a glorious destiny of forgiveness for Adam’s offspring.

Jesus and the Impact of Ideas (Part 2)

Jesus and the Impact of Ideas (Part 2)

Controversy and conflict seem to be more and more prevalent in our lives. We divide over matters of the church, over politics, over health, and even over others who are themselves fighting. In our post-Christian culture, believers are especially susceptible to finding themselves arguing against the continuing rise of decadence. How can we deal with conflict and controversy in a biblical way? In this multi-part series based on Luke chapter 20, Lenny looks at how Jesus responded to conflict and controversy in his day and offers some tips on how we can use his model to better engage others.

This last two-part talk of the series, “Jesus and the impact of Ideas,” Lenny explains how Jesus answered those who would question his position by keeping the most important point at the forefront of his discussion and how to ask the right questions to display the defective beleifs of his accusers.
