Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on September 8, 2017
4:00 – Social Science Apologetics: Sexless Marriage in a Sex-Saturated Society
A study from the Archives of Sexual Behavior shows that Americans are less sexually active than they were 25 years ago. Making sex more available doesn’t make it more exciting; it makes it more banal. Despite our sex-saturated society, 30% of marriages are sexless. We’ll talk about what this means with Dr Greg Popcak.
4:20 – Is Death a Gift?
When natives of third-world countries visit the West, they often comment on how uncomfortable many westerners are with talking about death. We know it happens to everyone, but we’re afraid and hide from the very idea of it. For some, this has even led to transhumanist efforts to “conquer” death. But that’s not what God the Father wants us to do. For Christians, death is not something to fear – it is something to embrace. We’ll talk about it with Monica Hannan.

Gary Michuta explains how.
