We’ve seen a lot of new listeners to the show the past few months, and a warm welcome to all of you! In this episode, Joe Boot, Ryan Eras and Nate Wright discuss how and why the Ezra Institute began, the issues and activities that we engage in, and what we’re doing next.
In an age of radical autonomy and group identity, Christian proclamation should not shrink from declaring the offense of the gospel against man’s self-righteous sensibilities.
We bring our series in Thomas Aquinas to a close by restating six significant differences between Thomistic thought and the reformation worldview that we believe is more consistent with Scripture. On the question of origins, nature and grace, ontology and anthropology, apologetics and Christian philosophy, the medieval thought of Aquinas falls short of the biblical position.
In this episode Joe describes the influence that Thomas Aquinas has had on the field of Christian apologetics, and discusses the areas where the Thomistic approach falls short of vindicating the full Christian doctrine of God.
Apologetics includes a defense of the Christian philosophy of life. Michael Thiessen of the Liberty Coalition Canada joins us to discuss an apologetic for the limits on the authority of the state and the ultimate authority of the kingdom of God that only a Christian worldview can account for.
As Western culture has shifted away from a broadly Christian consensus on basic beliefs of human identity, life, sexuality, history and more, Christian apologetics – the work of defending the Christian philosophy of life – will look different than it did in previous generations.
When a people’s commitment to truth breaks down, they become humiliated. A humiliated, emasculated people is easier to control. Christians have an opportunity and a responsibility to speak the truth effectively to people who have been robbed of their humanity by secularism.
At the 2019 Worldview Leadership Camp, Joe Boot introduces the discipline and practice of apologetics, demonstrating the need for a foundational trust in the Word of God.
At ReformCon 2019, Joe Boot explains that without freedom to live as Christians in every area of society, engaging in culture becomes a moot point.
At the 2019 Worldview Leadership Camp, Cory McKenna of the Cross Current explains why the Word of God must be the foundation for everything we believe, and that we can only recognize the false by first establishing a standard for what is true.
We live in a difficult time to live as faithful Christians. The unbelieving world urgently needs the message of the gospel, whatever the cost may be.
