The sacking of Israel Folau - guilty of a foul or victim of religious censorship? Laurence Wilkinson and Nick Heath

June 21, 2019

International sporting star Israel Folau was sacked by Rugby Australia after sharing an image on his Instagram and Twitter that read: ‘Warning - Drunks, Homosexuals, Adulterers, Liars, Fornicators, Thieves, Atheists, Idolators. Hell Awaits You. Repent! Only Jesus Saves’. Folau is now pursuing legal action.

Laurence Wilkinson of ADF International and Nick Heath of Sports Media LGBT debate whether Folau deserved to be sacked or has been unfairly punished for expressing his Christian beliefs.

June 14, 2019

Recent pro-life legislation in certain US states has reignited the debate about access to abortion. In the UK activists are lobbying for abortion to be decriminalised in Northern Ireland. So, is abortion a healthcare right? Or should the rights of the unborn child also count?

Should we unhitch Christianity from the Old Testament? Andy Stanley vs Jeff Durbin

Should we unhitch Christianity from the Old Testament? Andy Stanley vs Jeff Durbin

May 31, 2019

Andy Stanley is lead pastor of North Point Ministries, one of the largest churches in the USA. His preaching and new book ‘Irresistible: Reclaiming the New that Jesus Unleashed for the World’ has caused controversy by stating that the Bible should not be the foundation of Christian faith.

To make faith irresistible once more to sceptics in a post-Christian world, believers are not required to defend the Old Testament, but point to the events documented by the New Testament about Jesus - his life, death and resurrection. 

Jeff Durbin of Apologia Studios responds to Andy, saying that Christians need to stand on the inerrancy of the whole Bible - Old and New Testament - when evangelising non-Christians.

Calvinism pt 2 - Does Romans 9 support predestination? James White vs John Cranman

Calvinism pt 2 - Does Romans 9 support predestination? James White vs John Cranman

May 17, 2019

Romans 9 is one of the key texts used by Calvinists to support the doctrine of individual election - that God predestines people for salvation or damnation. However, John Cranman believes Calvinists are misreading Paul’s words and meaning.

He engages with Calvinist thinker James White as they debate whether Romans 9 refers to individual salvation or God’s prerogative to choose categories of people to be his own.
