While many of us describe ourselves as Christians, few of us are able to articulate Christian Orthodoxy. Fewer and fewer Christians are Biblically literate and many Christians hold non-Biblical ideas about the nature of God, Jesus and Salvation. To make matter worse, most young Christians will walk away from Christianity in their college years and the Church is often more concerned about itself than the community around it. In this podcast, Jim describes a three-pronged approach to "Church life" that may help solve some of these problems.

As Christians, should we support legislation such as the recently passed Health Care Reform Bill? Are there any over-arching Christian principles that should be considered when we examine legislation of this nature? In this podcast, Jim examines five Christian principles that can help us to filter legislative ideas through a Christian Worldview. Jim also answers an email about the Milgram Experiment, and an email about the difficulty we sometimes have trying to obey God's command to honor our father and mother.

In this podcast, Jim interviews apologist, author and national conference speaker Sean McDowell about his recent debate with Jim Corbett, "Is God the Best Explanation for Moral Values?"
