Christians sometimes call Jesus “The Messiah.” But what does the term “messiah” mean? Is the idea of a messiah exclusive to Christianity, or do other religions also have the concept of a messish? In this podcast, we look at several major world religions to see if any of them have a concept of a messiah. […]

The Second Coming of Jesus

Things in the world don’t work like they should. The wrong wins, and the right loses. But that’s not how it should be. The right should prevail, and the wrong should fail. In Christianity, that issue is addressed in the Second Coming of Jesus. For a transcript of this podcast, click here.

Fast-Track History of Christianity

Christianity is divided into four major groups: Oriental Orthodox, Eastern Orthodox, Roman Catholic, and Protestant. These groups are the result of three big splits in Christianity.

Original Sin

The Doctrine of Original Sin says that what people are at the core of their being is filthy, disgusting sinners. The most basic fact about you is that you are a piece of filth, rotten to the core. You are so rotten that you nauseate God. Why are you that way? Is it because you […]

The Trinity

The idea of the Trinity prevents Christians from seeing God the way Jesus taught us to see God—as being like the best human fathers. It’s interesting to go back in Christian history and see how and why the idea of the Trinity developed, and what it was originally intended to mean. Ancient Christians were struggling […]

Jesus and Social Problems

Why did Jesus not address the social injustices and inequities of His time? Slavery, the relegation of women to second-class status, cruel and inhumane punishments, just to name a few—all these things were common in Jesus’ day, yet He did not criticize them. Jesus reserved practically all of his criticism for the religious leaders. Why […]

Living in Today’s World

It’s hard not to get disgusted with the political circus going on in Washington, D. C. It’s also hard not to wring your hands over the state of things in the world. Let’s put all that into perspective. The way we’ll do that is to consider a Christian belief that’s not talked about a lot—Jesus […]

Life Before Birth

Did some part of you exist before you were born? Most Christians would immediately answer “no.” We are told the Christian belief is that nothing about you existed before you were born. However, that hasn’t always been the belief in Christianity. A segment of ancient Christianity believed that a part of you has existed since […]

The Soul, Consciousness, and the Nature of Reality

For part of this podcast, we go outside Christianity and consider an idea from cutting-edge science. For all the hoopla surrounding modern science, there are many questions science cannot answer. These are questions about the “why?” in addition to questions about the “how?” They are some of the deepest questions of life, questions people really […]
