For some time I've been intending to do an episode on the issue of abortion. It's an issue I've been very vocal about in the past and have recently felt compelled to re-engage in the public square.
Just a few weeks ago the national conversation about abortion sharply intensified when New York passed a bill which significantly weakened the regulations related to elective abortions particularly in regard to late term abortions. When a similar bill was proposed in my home state of Virginia, I found myself uncomfortable with being on the sidelines of this and other social issues. As a first step in getting more involved I decided to reach out to someone that I believe could speak to this subject in a way that my listeners would greatly benefit from.
Today's guest, Scott Klusendorf, is a nationally recognized pro-life advocate and president of the Life Training Institute. He has lectured on and debated the issue of abortion on over 80 colleges and universities, regularly conducted pro-life advocacy trainings and is the author of "The Case for Life". Yours truly caught up with Scott Klusendorf to talk about the following:
What is the current state of the abortion debate in America and in the church?
Do I have to become a Trump supporter or Republican to be on the right side of the abortion question?
How to make a 3 step argument for the pro-life position.
You don’t wanna miss this one!!!
P.S.: Ironically, this show is about kids and it just so happened that during the recording my 2 year old wandered into my studio area so you briefly hear him in the background smh. Shoutout to special guest Kaiden Coleman
Urban Apologist Alfredo Valentin
Droppin Biblical Jewels & Addressing Conflict amongst the Urban Apologetics Community
Topic: Alfredo Valentin is well respected in the urban apologetics community and for a reason. He has tons to offer folks who are seeking answers to address the objections to Christianity we face in our context and he always carries himself in a way that builds bridges rather than tears down. I caught up with Alfredo to discuss the following:
-The importance of Bible study and handling God’s Word properly in the life of an apologist.
-The current state of the urban apologetics community.
- How to address the conflict between urban apologists so that we can keep our focus on winning the lost and edifying believers.
Tune in for this one y’all!
