Is There Anybody Out There?

Is There Anybody Out There?

SND-Logo-Concepts-Sm1-150x150Tonight for the discussions we’re bringing back three of our guest from last season to dig in deeper to the divine question.  Is there a God and is Atheism really as rational as some believe?  From this discussion; what are the ramifications to evolution and the nature of man? These and more tonight at 8p Central.  You can watch the live show here or send in questions during the broadcast if you’re connected to our “Sunday Night Discussions” page on Google + or Face Book.  So grab a friend, some coffee, and come ready to discuss.

Jesus Christ. The Man in Question. Tonight at 8p Central.

“Who do people say I am?”  That question by Jesus Christ is probably one of the most important questions of all time.  Good teacher?  Misguided fanatic?  Son of God?  God himself in the flesh?  Those and other questions will be examined here tonight at 8p Central as we look at the identity of this mysterious man of whom so much debate has arisen over the past 2000 years.  Napoleon once proclaimed that he “knew men; and I tell you that Jesus Christ is not a man.”  True or False?  Fact of Fiction?  What are the ramifications?  So grab a friend and a good cup of coffee and we’ll see you tonight.  Remember that if you log in to the show through Google + and the “Sunday Night Discussions” page you can send in questions while the show is live.  You can also watch here and then send in questions to me via email or Face Book.  Looking forward to tonight and hope to see you soon.

 

John Lennon, Rosie O’Donnell, Jesus Christ, and “All Things Considered.”

I never really liked the title of the NPR program “All Things Considered.” Maybe it’s because the title somehow just felt shallow. I don’t know, maybe it’s just me, but it seemed like “all things considered” really means “all things that Robert Siegel and the producers want to consider.” Like many NPR programs, there seems to be a bent to purposefully stay away from and shun any position which has even an inkling of a serious Christian worldview. That is unless the point is to attack such a paradigm.  Yet I wonder; what would the fabric of any culture actually look like where the vast majority of people held Christ as King and the Bible as authoritative?  What could theoretically happen when an authentic Christian Worldview was actually played out in a society?

 

Yes, I know that many in our present American and Western cultures would flee from such an idea like an OU fan trying to get out of Memorial Stadium in Austin right after the Longhorns won. Some would even fight such a proposition with a special antagonism. It reminds me of the View episode back in 2006 when Rosie O’Donnell postulated to Elisabeth Hasselbeck that “Radical Christianity is just as threatening as Radical Islam.”  (more…)

Speaking the Truth in Love both on and off the Court.

I only played basketball for one year in elementary school and royally stunk at the game.  Not my favorite sport.  So it’s probably no surprise that I’m picking up the news feed a bit late on the media controversy of Jason Collins coming out with a gay lifestyle and the subsequent commentary of his Christian colleague, Chris Broussard.  I saw the opening news frenzy and reactions yesterday but really didn’t pay too much attention.  This morning however, I received an article link from a friend which is worthy of note when looking at the larger picture.  There are at least two observations we can make not only from the article, but from the discussion itself.  (more…)
