Seven Ideas That Changed the World Part 7 - How Christianity Makes Sense of Suffering

November 9th, 2013

Everybody experiences suffering. No matter what you believe about the world, you have to be able to account for that fact. Maybe you are an atheist and believe that there is no meaning in suffering - things happen and whether they are good or bad is a matter of opinion. But most people live as though there are absolute rights and wrongs and therefore need to give a reason for why bad things happen to good people. Listen to Brian explain just how Christianity uniquely explains the seeming injustice of bad things happening to good people.

Seven Ideas That Changed The World Part 2 - God Once Lived Among Us

July 6th, 2013

In part two of our series on ideas that have changed the world we are looking at the idea that God once lived among us. Jesus is the only religious leader in history that claimed to be deity. Some prominent skeptics have claimed that there is enough evidence to say that Jesus was not a real historical person, let alone that He was God incarnate. To make that kind of statement is to ignore the mountains of evidence to the contrary. When evaluating the idea of whether Jesus is God or not you must first cut out your presuppositions and come to the question ready to openly and honestly weigh the evidence. Join Brian as he examines the question of whether or not Jesus truly existed and if so, whether He was who He claimed to be.
