Walking Points Podcast: Episode 24
"That's true you, but not for me." Ever hear anyone say that? Instead of comparing and contrasting competing truth-claims, it seems today the topics of religions, worldviews, and life-philosophies more resemble a buffet table from which you get to choose the things you like and leave the things you don't.
Today Ian and I discuss not only what it means to say something is true, (like, Jesus is the Way the Truth, and the Life), but we also talk about the practical implications that should show up in a changed life.
Enjoy today's podcast,
Walking Points Podcast: Issue 23
Why do some people become Christians and others don't? Why does Christianity seem to be relevant for some folks and not for others? Is Christianity relevant to everyone, or just a few? Should Christianity be only a private belief or should it also have public consequences?
These are a few of the things Ian and I discuss in today's podcast.
During the podcast, I also ask these questions:
1. Where did we come from?
2.) Who are we?
3.) What's gone wrong with the world?
4.) What can we do to fix it?
5.) Where are we going?
Walking Points Questions for Reflection
Before our next podcast, begin to ask yourself those questions and formulate your answers. If you're a Christian, how would you answer those questions asked by someone who was not a Christian? If you're not a Christian, how would you answer those questions asked by someone of another faith?
Walking Points Podcast: Episode 22
Where did I come from?
Why am I here?
What happens after I die?
Why is there pain and suffering in the world?
Does God exist?
Those are deep and meaningful "worldview" questions that many people ask every day. Do you know how to help a person answer them? Others are more skeptical and even antagonistic toward your faith. Would you know how to respond to them when they start in with their cross examination of your faith?
In this week's episode, Ian and I barely scratch the surface in introducing the topic of Christian Apologetics (which simply means, "defense" of the Christian faith). This is not a highbrow discussion about philosophical matters. Instead, this is a discussion for every Christian.
In this episode I mention a post I wrote a while back which lists some of my favorite Apologetics Websites. Click the link to check it out.
I have also posted about two people I mention in this podcast. Francis Schaeffer and C.S. Lewis. Click those links if you would like to learn more about them.
