Who Designed the Designer? (2 segments)

  • Listen Now:
  • Description: The “New Atheists” are pulling no punches. If the world of nature needs a designer, they ask, then why wouldn’t the designer itself need a designer, too? Or if it can exist without any designer behind it, then why can’t we just say the same for the universe and wash our hands of a designer altogether? Michael Augros discusses the answers to these questions.

Beware of ‘trans movement’ as patriarchy in disguise

  • Description: "Until lately, if someone had mentioned patriarchy in the developed world, I would’ve thought we were about to embark on a somewhat archaic conversation.

        • Tabor Life institute - The Tabor Life Institute is dedicated to the sacramental-liturgical worldview of the human person and of the entire created order. This is a worldview which in fact holds the answer to all of life’s questions precisely because it is the most honest and fully integrated vision of reality. The sacramental-liturgical worldview, therefore, has an immense capacity to liberate and to transform people’s lives, at times even instantly. Pope John Paul II’s theology of the body is the principle delivery system for this sacramental, liturgical worldview. Along with the teachings of Pope John Paul II, the Tabor Life institute incorporates the sum total of the spiritual wisdom of the Church both east and west, irrefutable science, personal testimonies, and common sense in presentations that are fully integrated and comprehensive. The Tabor Life Institute presenters come from both the Roman Catholic and Eastern Catholic spiritual and liturgical traditions. This greatly contributes to Tabor’s special capacity for fully integrated presentations of the sacramental-liturgical worldview. The Tabor Life Institute specializes in compassionately yet forthrightly bringing honesty, clarity and perspective to the most controversial and delicate issues related to the entire experience of human sexuality. Therefore, youth, disenfranchised Christians and non-believers are a particular concern and focus of our work. The Tabor Life Institute was founded in 2003 by Catherine Baranko who serves as its current President. We are also members of TOBIA, (Theology of the Body International Alliance.)
