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!!!
