Tru-ID Podcast

Tru-ID is a podcast that focuses on Christian apologetics and tackling the issues of our time from a Christian perspective. The host of Tru-ID, Adam Coleman, hopes to honor Jesus Christ by engaging questions about and objections to Christianity, particularly those related to the African American community. Podcast episodes will explore race, the allegation that Christianity is the "white man's religion", history, science, philosophy, current events, and various ways to defend the Christian faith. The central theme of the Tru-ID Podcast series is that our true identity is to be found in God who has made mankind in His image.

Scott Lane chops it up with one of the lead rap vocalists of Renaissance Music Group, Sinai the Overcomer. Sinai is much more than a Christian rapper though. In this interview, Sinai talks about the work he and his team are doing to help build an orphanage and "Safe House Community" which is taking direct action against sex trafficking in Pretoria, South Africa. Sinai, Legin, and Mike Bell have released an album entitled "Safe House" and are committing every dollar they make from album sales to building the Safe House orphanage and community.

I've always been interested in gaining understanding of other people's experiences and points of view. Today I've brought in Sterling Contreras to school us on apologetics in the context of the Hispanic community. I had a hunch that there would be parallels between how people of African descent and Hispanic descent have developed negative sentiments toward Christianity on the basis of colonialism. We also delve into politics and basic steps we can take to understand and engage the Hispanic community on these issues. Enjoy the show.

Y'all still talkin' about the Ressurection?! Absolutely! The resurrection of Jesus Christ is not something we just pull out once a year, get dressed up for a special "Easter" service, then put it back on the shelf. The resurrection is at the very heart of Christianity. 

In this episode, Apologist Cameron Bertuzzi walks us through the Bayesian Argument for the resurrection which is an approach to presenting the historical evidence for the Christian claim that Jesus Christ rose from the dead!

Christianity is NOT a dumb mans religion!!!

On January 1, 1808 the United States abolished the importation of slaves to this country. On that same day, Rev. Absalom Jones presented a sermon at St. Thomas African Episcopal Church to celebrate this momentus event. The sermon conveys thankfulness for that step toward freedom and hope for the days to come. In this episode Adam Coleman recites that sermon in celebrating 2017 and reaching back in thankfulness for the freedoms we now enjoy. Absalom Jones had powerful words for his congregation in 1808 and those words still have relevance for us today. Hear ye him....
