November 13th, 2018

In this episode we explore the weird and wild world of pop atheism and it's claim that "faith" just is valuing belief without evidence. Is that the Biblical view? Is that even an accurate view of Christian belief? Let's find out!

FREED BYTE: Deut 22:28-29: A Manual for Marrying a Rapist?

October 27th, 2018

If you've spoken with atheists for any amount of time, you've likely heard this objection against the Bible - God is a moral monster because the Bible commands a rape victim to marry her rapist! 

Well is that what the text says? Not even close. In this Freed Byte episode, we take a look at this passage and respond to the challenge. 

Enjoy the show!

Why Accurately Handling History Matters - Calvin and the Servetus Affair

September 9th, 2018

In this episode I present my research on the Servetus affair in the life of John Calvin. This event is used by anti-Calvinists typically as an ad hominem attack against Calvinism more general. Not only is such an argument logically fallacious, but in this instance it is built on clearly demonstrable revisionist history. 

So did John Calvin have Servetus murdered? Let's find out and see why accurately handling history matters.

Genesis 1 as Temple Text

August 8th, 2018

We are told in the New Testament, " Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and in deeds". (Acts 7:22)

 

And yet for some reason when some of us present that idea that Moses wrote Genesis 1 in the same literary and cultural context that he was educated in, we are accused of denying inspiration or inerrancy. Here I continue my series that basically argues, “Yes… Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians… and he demonstrated his genius for it in his writings where he polemicized the very Egyptian worldview that he was raised in.”

 

In this episode I lay out some of the evidence that Genesis 1 was in fact a Temple Text.

 

Enjoy the show.

Freed Byte - Bad News Bears?

June 16th, 2018

I this episode I discuss a well known passage used by atheists and skeptics the world over to protest to Biblical Christianity. That is, the passage where they say the prophet Elisha murders a bunch of little kids for making fun of his baldness by calling some bears to attack them. But, is that really what the text says happened?
