A Review of “The Shack” – Greg Koukl

Play

“The Shack” is a movie based on the book by the same title written by Christian author, William P. Young. After suffering a family tragedy, Mack Phillips spirals into a deep depression that causes him to question his innermost beliefs. Facing a crisis of faith, he receives a mysterious letter urging him to an abandoned shack in the Oregon wilderness. Despite his doubts, Mack journeys to the shack and encounters an enigmatic trio of strangers led by a woman named Papa. Through this meeting, Mack finds important truths that will transform his understanding of his tragedy and change his life forever.

Today on the show, Kevin has Greg Koukl, an apologist and president of Stand to Reason. He is here to discuss the possibly controversial theology presented in the movie. Mainly, is it biblical to depict God as three distinct people and to depict God the Father as a woman? The answer may surprise you. Greg also shares some of his incredible apologetics knowledge and presents arguments and answers to some of the tough questions in Christianity.

Tune in to Educate For Life for a great show and discussion on theology and Christianity. If you want to learn more about Greg Koukl, you can check out www.STR.org.

Activist Mommy on Censorship – Elizabeth Martin Johnston

Activist Mommy on Censorship – Elizabeth Martin Johnston

Play

Censorship. Is it a benign tool used to prevent hate and prejudice or a weapon used to silence people who have a conservative and/or Christian worldview? To answer this important question, Kevin has Elizabeth Martin Johnston on the show today. She is better known as the Activist Mommy to her fans.

Elizabeth is an Activist Vlogger (video blogger) who educates about current events and topics that are important to families. The pulse behind everything Elizabeth does is her love for Jesus Christ, who saved her from her sin during her teenage years and launched her on a very unpredictable journey of service to Him, which has included foreign missions, orphanage ministry, outreach to kids in troubled inner-city areas, backyard bible clubs, street ministry, pro-life rescue ministry, public speaking, producing a movie, and homeschooling her ever-growing family.

Elizabeth is on a mission to expose the double standard of censorship. She has personally been on the receiving end of censorship, being banned from Facebook twice for taking a biblical stance on homosexuality. She is gathering evidence to expose Facebook for being biased against the worldview she holds to. If you’re watching today and you have experienced similar bias, Elizabeth asks that you contact her through her website at http://activistmommyofficial.com.

Is Genesis History – Dr. Del Tackett and Dr. Andrew Snelling

Play

Today on the show Kevin has two amazing experts, Dr. Del Tackett and Dr. Andrew Snelling, to talk about an exciting new movie called “Is Genesis History”. Is Genesis History? is a comprehensive documentary featuring scientists and scholars looking at the world and explaining how it intersects with the history recorded in Genesis. From rock layers to fossils to lions to stars, this fascinating film will challenge and change the way you see the world. Showing in theaters as a one-night event on Thursday, February 23 only (tickets at http://www.fathomevents.com/event/is-genesis-history), Is Genesis History? shines new light on our origins, providing a positive argument for Biblical Creation and the Flood. Dr. Del Tackett, the creator of “The Truth Project,” serves as your guide—hiking through canyons, climbing up mountains, and diving below the sea—in an exploration of two competing views … one compelling truth.

Dr. Del Tackett is the former president of the Focus on the Family Institute and a former Senior Vice President of Focus on the Family. He is also the creator of Focus on the Family’s The Truth Project—a nationwide initiative designed to bring the Christian worldview to the body of Christ. He’s here on the show today to talk about his role in the new movie and to share some of the amazing evidence that has been found.

Dr. Andrew Snelling will follow up with more evidence from Geology. Dr. Andrew Snelling has been involved in extensive creationist research in Australia and overseas, including the formation of all types of mineral deposits, radioactivity in rocks and radioisotopic dating, and the formation of metamorphic and igneous rocks, sedimentary strata and landscape features (e.g. Grand Canyon, USA, and Ayers Rock, Australia) within the biblical framework for earth history. As well as writing regularly and extensively in international creationist publications, Andrew has travelled around Australia and widely overseas (USA, UK, New Zealand, South Africa, Korea, Indonesia, Hong Kong, China) speaking in schools, churches, colleges and universities, particularly on the overwhelming scientific evidence consistent with the biblical account of Creation and Noah’s Flood.

How many times have you heard it said that virtually all scientists agree on the scientific validity of evolution? Not so! Kevin’s guest on the show today is Dr. James Tour. He is a Bible believing Christian who has serious doubts about evolutionary theory as it is today, not because of his faith, but because of science.

T. and W. F. Chao Professor of Chemistry, Professor of Computer Science, and Professor of Materials Science and NanoEngineering. Tour’s scientific research areas include nanoelectronics, graphene electronics, silicon oxide electronics, and many other chemical and molecular technologies such as nanomachines which includes molecular motors and nanocars.

Tour has over 600 research publications and over 120 patents, with total citations over 69,000 (Google Scholar). Tour was named among “The 50 Most Influential Scientists in the World Today” by TheBestSchools.org in 2014, listed in “The World’s Most Influential Scientific Minds” by Thomson Reuters ScienceWatch.com in 2014 and recipient of the Trotter Prize in “Information, Complexity and Inference” in 2014.
