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.

What Makes Christianity Unique?

Pastor Brandon Cooper joins Joel Settecase to discuss what makes the Christian worldview stand out from all the rest. The two old friends get into metaphysics, the exclusive claims of Christianity and Pluralism, Hinduism, eschatology, and why the biblical Gospel is truly unique.

If you're a Christian, this will help you articulate and defend what you believe. If you're not, it will challenge your assumptions and encourage you to entertain new ideas you perhaps hadn't considered. Either way, we hope it makes you think.

Brandon Cooper is the Senior Pastor at Cityview Community Church in Elmhurst, Illinois. Follow him on Twitter at @FollowAfterMin or on Facebook.

What is Truth?

In this epic episode, Joel Settecase and Alan Kern discuss the nature of truth and whether the concept of truth makes any sense without God.

This was a very interactive video, both between the two of them and with the viewers. The guys directly addressed questions from the viewers, including one who asked how he can know which God is the true one.

What About the Bible's Crazy Stories?

Tonight I addressed the Dreaded Question: "Do you *really* believe all those crazy stories in the Bible?"

The Bible says that a donkey talked, a man got swallowed by a fish and lived to tell about it, and that Jesus Christ rose from the dead. 

How crazy are these stories really? Does the Bible provide any good reasons for believing them? Are there good reasons to doubt them? 

I hope tonight's episode fortifies your faith and challenges your doubts; in short I hope it makes you think.

Liar? Prophet? Son of God? Who Is Jesus?

Pastor Dan Osborn (Park Community Church, Forest Glen, Chicago) has been teaching through the "I Am" statements of Jesus in the John's Gospel.

He joins Joel Settecase to discuss the biblical identity of Jesus and challenges to that identity. Could Jesus have been a mere prophet? Was he a great moral teacher but nothing more? Was he in fact a liar or perhaps delusional? And what do we do with all those fantastic claims he made about himself? Check out this episode and find out!
