In this episode Jason covers an assortment of topics. First he briefly covers cage-stage Calvinism, then he goes into a lengthy conversation that occurred back in Oct 2015 on Twitter with a Roman Catholic on Mary being our mediator. After that discussion Jason goes into a discussion with an agnostic/atheist on morality and how the Triune nature of God must be assumed to provide a justification for objective morals. We look into how this distinguishes presuppositional apologetics from evidential and classical apologetics.
In this episode Jason veers off of the apologetic path and talks about a topic that has befuddled Christians for centuries. Jason goes into Genesis 6 and discusses the passage. What are the Nephilim and who were the Sons of God? What does the New Testament say and how did the Jews and the early Church fathers look at this passage? All these are questions that Jason attempts to answer in this episode.
Is the atheist making a coherent claim when he says that he has a lack of belief in a god? Today Jason goes into this question and examines it to see if there is any justification to the claim. Jason also goes into the meanings of the terms “atheist” and “agnostic”. We examine if atheists consistently use these terms. Jason examines what Scripture says about whether people know that God exists and what the Bible says about the faith a Christian has.
In this episode Jason goes over the discussion of women in positions of authority and teaching in the assembled people of God. Can a woman Biblically be a pastor? The scriptures on this topic are examined and Jason goes over multiple arguments he has encountered from those who claim women can be pastors.
In this episode Jason goes over an article he recently wrote on A Biblical Response to “50 Reasons Why I Don’t Drink”. Jason discusses this article for a bit and then goes into the topic of what the Bible says about self-defense. We discuss the importance of the Old Testament and Jesus and the apostles use of the Old Testament Scripture.
