In this podcast, Jim examines relationship between Calvinism and Evidential Apologetics. What role does evidence play in making the case for Christianity? If humans are thoroughly fallen and biased, can we ever properly evaluate evidence related to God and Jesus? If God is thoroughly sovereign, does an evidential “case making” approach to apologetics insult the nature and power of God?

In this podcast, Jim examines the biblical evidence related to homosexuality. Is it possible to be a practicing “Christian homosexual”? And what do the studies say about homosexual unions and parenting. Is it true that there are “no differences” between children raised in same sex homes and children raised in intact biological two parent families?

In this special 5th Anniversary podcast, Jim “skypes” with Assistant District Attorney Al Serrato to discuss the role of deception from a Biblical perspective. As a Christian, is it ever OK to lie? What does the Bible tell us about this controversial issue and about moral dilemmas in general? Jim and Al also discuss the limitations of sincerity when trying to determine truth and the problem of spiritual apathy.

In this podcast, Jim examines the friction between Calvinism and Evidential Apologetics. If God is sovereignly in control of whom He elects, what role does evidence play in the process of Salvation? Are we even capable, as fallen, limited humans, to assess evidence in the first place? What do we mean when we talk about the “freedom to choose” something?
