Christian philosopher Josh Rasmussen has recently completed a roughly 3 hour series of podcasts with Capturing Christianity, in which he discusses primarily the contingency argument for God. There are also some discussions of other topics, such as apologetic methodology and the problem of evil. You can find them here:
Both Rasmussen and Capturing Christianity are worth paying attention to in general, but these discussions specifically are quite good. They are a bit popular level rather than academic level, but still valuable.
Here is my most recent sermon at my local church, on the whole of Proverbs 8.
I’ll take the opportunity to remind you all that we now have various subscription options for the blog, which are more useful now that updates are less frequent, so you can get the updates sent to you rather than having to check all the time.
I have recently come across a nice apologetics website called Capturing Christianity. Their mission and methodology are quite similar to mine, though they are clearly a good deal more professional (since they actually get paid for it). They have produced some good content. Especially on their youtube channel, since as you are probably aware most apologetics on youtube is garbage. Worth checking out.
For anyone interested in Textual Criticism, Credo (quickly becoming a favourite around here) is selling Dan Wallace’s series on Textual Criticism for free for a limited time. I would recommend checking it out, if you missed it in the big everything is free sale a few weeks ago.
Another short post, since it’s Sunday and I’ve got church to do. All Credo audio courses are currently free, and many of them are quite valuable: https://www.credocourses.com/?goal=0_22ee63b739-1503433543-62185061&mc_cid=1503433543&mc_eid=99993fc94c
Some people have asked me to post recordings of sermons that I have preached at my local church. Despite being a young man, I have been given the privilege of preaching at a Sunday morning gathering four times. Here they are, in reverse chronological order.
This podcast from TGC is one of the best I’ve heard in a while. Explaining discipleship in the context of a biblical eschatology vs. three competing modern eschatologies of enlightenment, sexual revolution, and consumerism. The focus on eschatology was extremely interesting and perceptive. If you want to think about how the church can engage modern culture, this may be very useful.
Some of you may be familiar with the website Credo, if you’ve spoken to me on discord you will have heard of other free offers from them. Probably Gary Habermas’ course on the Resurrection.
Today they’re advertising that you can “purchase” all their courses for free, offer valid for a week. I recommend you do so, some of it is very useful for apologetics.
Their website seems to be having a bad day, I am having trouble getting in. But some people have managed, and we have a whole week to get in and buy them.
I am not affiliated with Credo in any way, I just think this is a good resource.
Ligonier Ministries recently had their 2018 West Coast Conference, this time the topic was Defending the Faith. I have not yet made my way through all the videos, but so far they are very valuable. Here is a link to each video, it doesn’t seem like Ligonier have put them into a playlist yet.
