Some Old Testament Heroes are quite clearly not the most moral beings in the universe. In this video, we discuss whether this poses a substantial to Christian belief and the nature of God. I hope you enjoy the video.
What is God? More precisely, what is the nature of the divine, the nature of faith? In today's video, Warren and I discuss these questions and try to figure out what is the true nature of faith and belief.  I hope you find this discussion helpful or insightful.

To leave one's home and to enter into the world is often the highest and most difficult stage in one's life. One has to leave behind the familiar, trade it with the unknown. This is a stage of turmoil and difficulty, but why do we often hear God commanding us to do just that, to leave our comfort and enter the world?To me and Warren, the world is a field in which one can learn about oneself, to develop oneself. And it is this ability for one to unlock a somewhat boundless, divine potential, which makes it worthwhile to enter into the unknown, the world. --------------------------To check out more about my content feel free to go to my YouTube Channel Apologetics for All to access clips and extra discussions

Language is a gift, it can also seen as divine.In Genesis 11, we see man, using language, to unify and build a tower towards the sky. In response to this, God disrupts the language of man, hence separating them to different corners of the world. I hope you enjoy this discussion and find it greatly insightful. --------------------------To check out more about my content feel free to go to my YouTube Channel Apologetics for All to access clips and extra discussions

Silence is always utilised in literature and discourse to great effect.In the works of Camus and Pascal, silence is seen as a key facet of existential angst. To Dostoevsky, however, silence is that which deeps one's understanding and walk with the divine and the world. In this video, we discuss the nature of this silence and how it impacts our understanding of the world. 
The Bible, Josephus, Tacitus, Justin Martyr...These are some of the many sources which discuss the facts relating to the Resurrection.

Being a teenager is difficult, especially when Uni Apps arrive. In this video, I am joined by my dear friend Warren Zhu to discuss everything ranging from sex to college applications, and our thoughts about society. I hope you enjoy this crazy discussion and have fun!
There's contradictions in multiple historical texts, is this a problem?In this short clip, Zac and I discuss the issue of historical sources being inconsistent. While this is more focused on the resurrection, as the question was raised during a discussion about the resurrection, I felt it was greatly apropos to broader historical questions as well. Tying in knowledge from the Tet Offensive, Punic Wars, and more, when approaching it from a historical lens, note this video is about the historical lens and not the theological lens, it is apparent that a few inconsistencies is not a big problem at all. 
Responsibility is a theme found throughout history from existentialism to religion to Spiderman. In this video, we discuss the importance of responsibility and its implications in all of our lives. Through this discussion, I hope it would shed a new perspective on responsibility and its implications in how we act with others.
An Eye for an Eye always feels like a weird part of the Bible. It is meant to be the book of love, but does this part represent hate?In this video, we discuss this phrase and talk about the themes of revenge and retribution. I hope you enjoy.--------------------------To check out more about my content feel free to go to my YouTube Channel Apologetics for All to access clips and extra discussions

Is gender a part of nature or is it a subjective feeling?In this video, we discuss the relationship of gender and science seeing how they are meant to be measured against each other.

If there is no God, everything is permitted.Who said it? Dostoevsky? Sartre? Where did it come from? Did Sartre understand Dostoevsky at all, or did he completely miss Dostoevsky's point.
