We've been thinking about barriers to evangelism.

Over two episodes we considered problems of the head (part 1, part 2). Now, in three episodes we will discuss problems of the heart.

In particular we will address our fears of dirty hands, red faces and poor spirits. In this episode we try to rethink godliness according to the gospel of Jesus. If Christ moved into the world to befriend sinners then "getting our hands dirty" in mission is not simply necessary, it's positively divine!

TEP-PodcastCover-1024x1024In our last episode we began looking at Problems of the Head. We tried to establish the proper place of reason in evangelism. Reason is not the ladder reaching up to heaven, revelation is the rescue that comes down.

In this episode we work through some of the implications for reason. We think about how we should address enquirer's intellectual objections. In particular we try to:

  • Reframe the question
  • Reflect to the questioner, and
  • Reveal Christ

The true nature of evangelism is not offering Cool, Credibility, Creeds or Courses. It's offering Christ.

TEP-PodcastCover-1024x1024Problems of the Head

We have discussed many intellectual objections to Christianity, but what is the place of reason in evangelism? Can we think our way to God? And if not, how should we go about telling the good news when people "demand wisdom"?

Among other things we discuss 2 Corinthians 4 and 5; Romans 1; Acts 17 and 1 Corinthians 1.

TEP-PodcastCover-1024x1024In previous episodes we have thought about:

1. Introduction. Six kinds of atheism

2. Six things that atheists get right

3. Six things that atheists miss

In this final episode on atheism we tie up some loose ends. In particular we address six hot topics in engaging with atheism:

  • Don't believers just believe in 'fairies at the bottom of the garden'?
  • Who made God?
  • Don't miracles break the laws of nature?
  • Doesn’t science rule out God?
  • What about Evolution?
  • Surely Christians reason in a circle?

LA Times Festival of BooksIn this podcast we discuss 6 things atheists get right.

  1. We are all atheists with regard to the vast number of deities ever proposed
  2. A world with God is very different to a world without God
  3. Being good in order to get heaven is perverse
  4. Suffering is real
  5. Religion is a terrible slavery

EPISODE 15: Doesn't the Bible Support Slavery?

What comes to mind when we mention Slavery? The African slave trade? ‘Upstairs Downstairs’? Imperialism/Colonialism. There are many ways in which we face slavery today. Some might say the Bible supports it. Is that right?

I'm somewhat rambly at times, but there are some raw materials here to help you answer the slavery question for yourself.

If you're being suitably Christ-centred in your evangelism - and I hope you are - one question bound to arise is this: What about the Old Testament?  If Christ is so important, how come he only showed up 2000 years ago?

As you might imagine, I have some thoughts on the matter...
