Does Christian Hypocrisy Disprove the Christian Message?

Does Christian hypocrisy mean that Christianity is false?

Joel Settecase gives some initial comments related to recent pro-life legislation and a now infamous tweet about Christian hypocrisy that unleashed a massive conversation last week. Then he does an internal critique, from the biblical perspective, of the idea that hypocrisy discredits the messenger or voids the message. Finally he analyzes whether the unbelieving worldview can account for the kind of moral standard needed in order to condemn hypocrisy as immoral.

Got any plans for Monday night? Why not take an hour and bone up on your defense of the Christian message? Not a believer? This is a great chance to entertain new ideas and see how well your objections stack up to the Bible’s teachings.

Every Monday night for the last seven weeks or so, Joel Settecase has been going live to answer objections to biblical faith. Past topics have included,

  • Is Christianity illogical?

  • How do we know the Bible was written by God?

  • If God is good, why did he let this happen to me?

  • Prophet? Liar? Son of God? Who is Jesus really?

  • What about the Bible’s :”crazy” stories?

  • How to start spiritual conversations

Most of the time Joel flies solo, although from time to time he brings on a guest, whether a pastor or thinker, for a lively conversation. And you are encouraged to join in the conversation too.

These videos become the “This Is Apologetics” podcast, so this is your chance to hear it first and interact with Joel, his guest, and the topic of the week.

So check out “This Is Apologetics,” the live show on Facebook Live, tonight and every Monday, at the Think Institute Facebook page. See you at 9 p.m.!

How to Get Into Spiritual Conversations

Talking to strangers can be a scary thing. But for Christians, it can be a very rewarding endeavor. Joel Settecase introduced what spiritual conversations are and why we ought to seek them out. Then he looked at some biblical examples and two or three examples from my own life. Finally, he shared two stories of spiritual conversations I had recently, both on airplanes and discussed the benefit of having a "captive audience."
