The 8-Fold Path to Great Spiritual Conversations, Ep. 17

January 31st, 2017

If something like the whistling theme from The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly plays in your head when you go into “spiritual discussion mode,” then you probably are doing more damage than good.

Unfortunately, many spiritual conversations end up in arguments over dinosaurs on the ark or whether or not Jonah was really swallowed by a fish instead of the real issue of sin and our need for Jesus.

But it’s not just because Christians are bad at civil conversation. It’s because everyone is bad at civil conversation.

The next time you’re headed into a creation vs. evolution argument, give my (non-Buddhist) 8-fold path to a great spiritual conversation a shot.

Answering Objections to Christianity w/ Dr. Justin Bass, Ep. 14

December 20th, 2016

Justin Bass  helps us to answer those who have objections to a few aspects of Christianity. In this episode, we talk about how to answer those who say the Bible is written too late and was changed over time, those who say Jesus never rose from the dead, and those who say Jesus never claimed to be God. Dr. Bass has debated publically on these topics and carries a doctorate in New Testament Studies from Dallas Theological Seminary, where he is an adjunct professor.
