Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on September 10, 2018
4:00 – Social Science Apologetics: “Homosexuality has nothing to do with this”
What role does homosexuality play in the crisis in the Church? Some are trying to claim it has “nothing to do with it,” and chastise their opponents for blaming pedophilia on homosexuality. But that’s not what we’re doing. In fact, most of the incidents of the abuse crisis have little to do with pedophilia, because they involve attraction to sexually mature persons. Dr Greg Popcak joins us with more.
4:20 – Can a Scientist Believe in Miracles?
“How can someone as smart as you believe in something like that?” Most scientists today who are public about their faith in Christ have faced a question along those lines. Ian Hutchinson still remembers when a fellow MIT professors asked him many years ago. The answer is crucial, and it isn’t restricted to just scientists. He joins us with more.
5:00 – Unbroken: Path to Redemption finishes Zamperini’s Story
The new film Unbroken: Path to Redemption picks up where the 2014 film left off: after surviving a plane crash, weeks of floating on a makeshift raft in the Pacific and then years of torture as a prisoner of war, Louis “Louie” Zamperini finally returns home to California, seemingly “unbroken.” The War is over, but his battle is just beginning. The world sees him as a hero, but he sees himself as anything but. The film hits theaters on Friday, and producer Matt Baer joins us with a sneak peek.
5:20 – Answering the Moral Questions of our Time
We are born with an inherent understanding of right and wrong – it’s one of the things that sets us apart from the rest of Creation. But the world we live in – one that no longer acknowledges even something as basic as the nature of gender – constantly interferes with this understanding. How can we regain our moral compass? We talk with Gerard Verschuuren about reacquainting our moral judgement.
