Ravi, Lentz, Harris, Sampson..... Christian leaders falling away....
Even though the "New Atheism" movement isn't that new anymore, the movement's effects still ripple out in culture.
As we get going in 2021 we take one last moment to look back at DJ Paine's 2020.
What has God been doing in the life of Matthew Jacoby in 2020?
We have a special guest to discuss Victoria's "Change or Suppression (Conversion) Practices Prohibition Bill 2020"
Are Christians just "judgey" hypocrites? Are they all bigots with a smile?
But what about Buddhism? Hinduism? Islam? Judaism? What about these people?
Hang on to your hats! We are going to FLY over 2000 years of history in about 70 minutes!
Matthew and DJ wrap up their conversation about the christian's worldview of politics.
Religion and Politics! Egads! These topics are never spoken about in polite society!

<p>If God exists then why is there so much suffering and evil in the world? If God is good, all-powerful and all-knowing, why would he allow so many terrible things to happen?

<p>Where do we draw the line of false teaching and orthodoxy? What is the evangelical protestant faith and what is a heretic? Dr Matthew Jacoby and our host DJ Paine wade into the waters of religious differences and the history of the Christian faith to discuss what Jude writes about: "Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for <strong><em>the faith</em></strong> which was once for all delivered to the saints."</p>
