Charles Taylor too long and dense for you? I understand. Here’s a nice podcast on the topic of secularism, with a focus on pastoring and discipleship.
“That’s life in a secular age. That’s belief under the conditions of doubt. That’s pastoring and leading the church under the conditions of doubt. Because even watching things happen—whether you’re watching people move from death to life, through salvation, or whether you’re watching people experience healing, physical or emotional or whatever—the reality of secularism is that there’s this nagging, needling condition of doubt.” — Mike Cosper
Looking for some new stuff to watch on youtube related to apologetics? I’ve got some links for you. The first one I found out about from Capturing Christianity (many more good videos there)
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 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.
