Wow. Good stuff! I've always wondered whether visitors to my church (not just my current one) felt this way. Is your church totally lame? Do you see yourself in this video?

Despite being a Christian for most of my life (or perhaps because of it) I find most 'Christian-y' stuff trite, overdone, derivative or lame. At first glance, I thought this video would be just that.

Simon Peter was one of Jesus' first disciples. His given name was Simon, sometimes spelled Symeon. Simon is the English rendering of the Hebrew name Shimon. Shimon comes from the Hebrew word shema.

Let's look at Romans 16:7. Greet Andronicus and Junia, my fellow Jews who have been in prison with me. They are outstanding among the apostles, and they were in Christ before I was.

Adrian asked a question that I'd never heard before: if Noah had obligate carnivores (carnivores that must eat meat to thrive) on the ark, what did they eat?

In this video from Reasonable Faith, Anselm's Ontological Argument is presented. Anselm of Canterbury wrote that God is "that than which nothing greater can be conceived", and believed that if it's possible that a 'maximally great' being exists, then that being must exist. See what you think.

Some people doubt that Jesus actually existed. They claim that some first-century men made up a story, and that a bunch of people were fooled into believing it. I've heard from a lot of skeptics of Christianity, and there's a fair number who claim that Jesus never actually existed.

Teleskoid asked: "Why does the Bible completely forbid something like a homosexual loving marriage? It seems to be rather unfair to me." That seems like a good question.

A popular Kansas City tattoo artist, "Whispering Danny" has an impactful story that he should shout for all to hear. But he can't.

Calvinism is a system of Christian thought known for a specific view of the predestination of believers. Molinism is a lesser-known system with a different view. If you've ever wondered about soteriology - that is, the doctrine of salvation - this podcast might be helpful to you.
