Skeptics and Christians alike, understandably, have difficulty seeing how a God of love could advocate for slavery. Yet, the law of Moses, as translated in most english Bibles, does explain how Israelites were to buy, sell, and treat their . . . slaves. Is this proof that the God of the Bible is a moral monster? In this episode, we’ll cover the most objectionable statements in scripture, as they relate to slavery, and discuss the terminology, culture, and intentions of the biblical writers. In the first and last word segments, we’ll cover death-bed conversions, and intuition!Read More
Who did Jesus think he was? It makes a difference when it comes to the discussion of the resurrection.
