Podcast: Play in new window Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | Email | Stitcher | TuneIn | Spotify | RSS Passages in the Old Testament mention buying “slaves” or servants.  One even states “If a man sells his daughter as a female slave (Ex. 21:7) ….”  What?  Buying and selling slaves?  Selling your daughter?  This is crazy and obviously immoral!   But are we understanding the passages correctly?  Are people really considered property in the OT?   Was “slavery” in the OT the kind of institution we had in America up to the Civil War?   No.  Dr. Paul Copan, author of Is God a Moral Monster? joins Frank and sets the record straight.  They cover many of the objections that skeptics raise in Frank’s answer to the slavery question in this…

Podcast: Play in new window Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | Email | Stitcher | TuneIn | Spotify | RSS There is an argument for God that works even if the universe is eternal, even if macroevolution is true, even if a person believes that science is the supreme source of knowledge. It’s an argument that is as old as Aristotle, yet few talk about it today. Tricia Scribner, co-editor of the new book Answering the Music Man joins Frank for a fascinating discussion that unpacks this ancient argument in modern terms. Frank and Tricia show that science wouldn’t even work unless the premises of this argument were true.

Podcast: Play in new window Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | Email | Stitcher | TuneIn | Spotify | RSS Does Abortion Trump Everything Else? Have you heard people say that you’re just a one-issue voter? You’re pro-life on abortion but you need to be pro-life until natural death.  You need a more biblically balanced view and address other issues that are just as important, such as racism, poverty, and healthcare.  Dr. Ron Sider, a politically liberal evangelical, makes that case in a new blog. Frank responds that equating all those issues makes four major mistakes, including ignoring the teaching of Jesus.  This is an important show as we enter the home stretch of the election season.
