Defending Christianity Podcast

Levi Dade

The message of the Gospel is attacked every day by restless efforts and empty philosophies of this world. That is why Defending Christianity isn’t about making meaningless arguments or attempting to provoke empty debates– it is about preserving the redeeming message of the cross of Christ by using logic and reason to communicate why Christianity best explains reality. New episodes are released fortnightly on Thursdays at 10 AM Central. For suggestions on episode coverage, email levi@defendingchristianity.org! Also, please check out the Defending Christianity Blog (defendingchristianityblog.org) for articles on all things related to Christianity and Apologetics! **Season 2 premiering August 12, 2021

Paul: Founder of Christianity or Follower of Jesus?
Many might be surprised to hear that there is a lot of debate surrounding the messages of Jesus and Paul. Some scholars will attest that the two messages are at odds with one another. Is this the case? What implications does that have for the Christian faith if it's true? That’s going to be our topic for today, and to discuss it I have Dr. Marvin Pate.Specifically, in relation to the Apostle Paul, Dr. Pate has written books including The End of the Age Has Come: The Theology of Paul and Apostle of the Last Days. I will leave links in the description below for those who want to check out Dr. Pate’s books.Check out Dr. Pate's Books below:The End of the Age Has Come: The Theology of PaulApostle of the Last Days: The Life, Letters, and Theology of Paul40 Questions on the Historical JesusCrucified in the Media:  Finding the Real Jesus Amidst the HeadlinesThe Writings of JohnRomansIf you enjoy this podcast and want others to hear about it, pleasego to this link to leave a 5-star review!!

CrossExamined with Dr. Frank Turek
Why should we even care about the culture’s ever-increasing skepticism about God, Christianity, and the Bible? If you’re a parent this should be easy to answer. You will one day, if you haven’t already, send your child out into the world where they will be exposed to this culture. Don’t you think it’s pretty important that before you send them out on their own to equip them with logical reasons for why Christianity is true and good?Our guest today is Dr. Frank Turek, who is the President of CrossExamined.org, a non-profit ministry that conducts I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist seminar on college campuses, churches, and high schools.
