How are other worldviews influencing Christianity today?

Barna Group recently partnered with Summit Ministries in order to better understand how competing worldviews like Marxism, Secularism, New Spirituality, Postmodernism, and Islam are influencing the Christian worldview. What they found was almost unbelievable. Their findings show that only 17% of Christians who say that Christianity is important to them and go to church regularly hold a Christian worldview. This means that Christians are being heavily influenced by the culture. Read their report here.

I have been wanted to record an episode for the last few weeks talking about how I taught Christian and Postmodern history to my students. The results of this research directly line up with my lesson and so I knew that now is the time. Listen here to see how I taught my students about different interpretations, bias, and discovering objective truth.

Starting Faith Conversations

Over the last two weeks I have had multiple questions about how to get people to think about Christianity. How can we motivate students to think about other people and future decisions? What can we do when they are apathetic? How can we initiate conversations about Christianity with friends or family members? This week I answer these questions by giving a few practical steps that we can take to discuss Christianity with those around us.

Evangelism and the Big Bang with Dr. Jeff Zweerink

Dr. Jeff Zweerink, an astrophysicist and research scholar at Reasons to Believe, joined me to talk about what Christians need to know about Big Bang cosmology. It was interesting that he was able to show how the Big Bang can be useful when it comes to Evangelism. Listen and see how he connected the two!

You can find last week’s interview on the integration of science and faith here.

The Integration of Science and Faith with Dr. Jeff Zweerink

Dr. Jeff Zweerink, a research scholar at Reasons to Believe, joined me this week to talk about the integration of science and faith. He is an astrophysicist studying the multiverse theory, dark energy and dark matter, and exoplanets. In this episode he talks about what it is like being a Christian scientist, why the church should care about the scientific disciplines, and how students can stay strong in their faith while studying science.

How To Develop a Deep Relationship with God

I recently created a new talk titled “Everyone Has To Start Somewhere.” The purpose of this talk is to recognize that we all aren’t at the same level of relationship with God. Some of us haven’t started, others are just beginning, and some have a deep relationship. I discuss this idea in the recent blog, Everyone Has To Start Somewhere – Helping Students Deepen Their Relationship With God.

Since I wrote out the main idea from the talk before, I wanted to discuss it on the podcast. I hope you enjoy this week as I walk through a plan to develop a deeper relationship with God. If you like what you hear, remember that I am available to visit your church or youth group and share with you. Just visit the Endorsements & Speaking for more information.

Do we live in a secular culture, and how should Christians respond?

I had fun recording the podcast this week with my roommate, Neal Hardin. He is a former metallurgical engineer who is now a current MA Theology student at Talbot. His passion is to find where the Bible speaks about political issues and to train up the church to think about political issues biblically. For this reason, I asked him to join me to discuss the secularization of our culture this week. I hope you enjoy it!
