Classic Replay: Why Suffering? Sharon Dirckx & Alom Shaha

December 6, 2022

"Why?" was the title of a book that had just been published by Sharon Dirckx looking at God, evil and suffering. She interacted with atheist Alom Shaha as we asked "how can a loving God allow suffering?"

 

We also heard stories from people who had been through suffering but kept their faith such as Will, who became a Christian after losing his wife and a child in a tragic road accident, and Rachel who suffered from MS for a number of years. First broadcast in 2013

Classic Replay: Three views on hell

Classic Replay: Three views on hell

November 29, 2022

The film “Hellbound” by Kevin Miller questioned the traditional "eternal, conscious torment" view of hell and asked whether Universalism is actually taught in scripture.

Justin was joined by Kevin Miller, along with Glenn Peoples who holds an "annihilationist" position, and Peter Sanlon who defended the traditional view. They discussed whether questioning hell goes against evangelicalism, whether evangelism is at stake and what most Christians really believe about hell. First broadcast in 2013.

Classic Replay: NT Wright & James White debate Paul & Justification

Classic Replay: NT Wright & James White debate Paul & Justification

November 22, 2022

From the archives: NT Wright is a leading professor of New Testament at the forefront of what has been called the New Perspective on Paul. His reassessment of the words of Paul on "justification" led to concern from some reformed church leaders. Does this new perspective undermine important doctrine, or did the reformers read their Bible wrong? James White, reformed Bible scholar of Alpha and Omega ministries, discussed with NT Wright as they sought to find out what Paul really said about justification.

Were colonial-era missionaries good or bad for Africa? Victor Simz & Jonathan Wilson

Were colonial-era missionaries good or bad for Africa? Victor Simz & Jonathan Wilson

November 18, 2022

Were Victorian missionaries a tool of oppression, exploitation and empire as some critics claim? Or did they leave a legacy of education, healthcare and eradicating inhumane practises?

 

Victor Simz, known online as the Z Historian, is a Zambian historian who has charted the impact of missionaries in East Africa. He discusses the issues with Jonathan Wilson who comes from a missionary family and believes the story of the positive global impact of missions work is often under-appreciated.

Classic Replay: London’s atheist church - Sanderson Jones & David Robertson

November 8, 2022

In Jan 2013 a new church began in London - with singing, a sermon and a great sense of community - but for godless people. Atheist stand up comedian Sanderson Jones who co-founded "the Sunday Assembly" talked about its first meeting and why he set it up. David Robertson, at the time a church minister, asked questions about whether an "atheist church" makes sense and what Christians could learn from it. Justin was also joined by two of those who attended the first service, Rory Fenton and Simon Jenkins.
