Dr. Russell Moore, President of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, joins the Exploring Hope studio to discuss the moral principles that should guide Christians in making medical decisions that are controversial ethically. New technologies have brought about all kinds of procedures and methods and possibilities which can be dizzying when we try and apply our moral compasses to them. Dr. Moore offers some helpful principles to stand on and to use as a foundation for wrestling with the morality of some of these new medical possibilities. Enjoy!
The problem of evil is perhaps the most common concern with or objection to the Christian faith. So, as Christians it is important to understand how we should view evil and suffering in light of a perfect, loving, all-knowing, and all-powerful God. And, not only is this important for apologetics, but it is also crucial for the believer, personally. So, Dr. Greg Welty, professor of philosophy here at SEBTS, joins the Exploring Hope studio to answer the question of how we should view evil in the Christian faith. Enjoy!
The first two chapters in the bible have been the subject of numerous debates. By virtue of it being an account of the beginning of the entire created order, it engenders innumerable questions that relate to cosmology, biology, theology, and especially hermeneutics. So what’s really being said in those first two chapters? Dr. Ken Keathley invites us to ask ourselves what the worldview of the original audience would have been, as well as determine the purpose of creation account. Once we get our hermeneutic right, we can start to ask the questions that involve science and other studies such as: “Were they 6 literal days of creation?” and “How old is the earth?” Take a couple of minutes to watch this video where Dr. Keathley provides some expertise, as well as a helpful perspective on such a controversial couple of chapters.
In this Exploring Hope Video I get a chance to sit down with Timothy George and ask him about Christianity and Islam. Do Muslims and Christians worship the same God? Is it possible that our religions just look different culturally and practically, but at are actually aimed at the same divine being? Are the differences fundamental or just peripheral? These are very important questions given some of the similarities between these two religions, particularly regarding monotheism and the shared history of these religions. Yet, there are some differences that are irreconcilable. Watch Timothy George as he explains and answers these questions. Enjoy the video!
Sometimes the true message of the gospel can get confused by those who claim to be Christians. Unfortunately, there is often a difference between the Christianity found in the Bible, and “Christianity” lived out in our culture. Recently, I was able to sit down with Derek Hicks and discuss this disconnect that we’ve seen in our history, as well as how much it inhabits our culture today. Watch this short video which addresses the problem of this confusion in our culture. Enjoy!
