  • Faith is being sure of what you hope for
  • The most important thing in the universe is knowledge of truth
    • What were Jesus’ actual last words?
    • Matthew 27:46-50 vs. John 19:28-30
  • Listener Question:
    • Recently a family member of mine began pursuing a homosexual lifestyle. She doesn’t want my wife and I to know and has only admitted it to a couple of people. For months now she has kept up her relationship with us unaware that we know. A Christian turned Agnostic, she knows our stance on homosexuality and doesn’t want to hear anything about it from us. My question is where do we draw the line when it comes interacting with her and her partner? We want to love them and not reject them; but we are unable to state our true feelings given the situation.
  • Listener Question:
    • From Mark: Hey guys, I had a quick question for you. I had heard some people say that Jesus had brothers and sisters. Is this true? And if it is, why do we refer to his mother as the “Virgin” Mary?
  • There is nothing wrong with questioning Christianity.
  • It is a logical fallacy to say that Christianity is wrong because Christians have done bad things.
  • Analogy: Just because the Raiders have criminals on their team doesn’t mean they are a bad football team
  • Caller Question:
  • Caller
    • Question: I’d like to know how we know that the people who wrote the bible didn’t lie about who Jesus really was.
  • Look at the character of those who wrote the Bible. Particularly Paul.
  • It has been said that 100,000 people were killed in the Crusades. Not true. Closer to 3,000
  • Spanish Inquisition: 3,000 people were killed in the inquisition over a 250 year span. Many were Christians themselves
  • Not everyone who bears the name of Christ is a Christian. (example: Fred Phelps)
  • Christians should live the way HE lived
  • The Witch hunts: People have claimed that Christians killed 9,000,000 women were burned as witches during the Witch Hunts. Not True. 40,000 or 50,000 over 300 years.
  • While the number of people killed during the Witch Hunts is
  • Caller Question:
  • Caller
    • Question: Compare President Bush and Hitler and their “Christian” motives for wars
  • It’s a misnomer that Hitler was a Christian
  • Hitler Quote: “The heaviest blow which ever struck humanity was Christianity; Bolshevism is Christianity‚Äôs illegitimate child. Both are inventions of the Jew.”
  • It must be made clear: Bush and his wars were not Christian wars. It was war made in the name of the U.S., not Jesus.
  • Quote from Jesus: Luke 6:35 “”
