087: On the Burning of Notre Dame

Apr 25, 2019 | Apologetics, Christian Living, Current Events, Podcast

Recently the news reported of a tragic event that took place in Paris, France—the burning of the beloved Notre Dame Cathedral.

While this is tragic, make no mistake, I was a bit unpleasantly surprised by some of the reactions I saw from the Christian community. Have we got to the place where the “building” is esteemed higher than it ought to be?

In this episode I begin by giving a few thoughts around that. Then, we answer some questions from Quora about Christianity.

This week’s questions:

  1. What is it like to shift from a devotional reading of the Bible to more of a historical/critical examination of it?
  2. My boyfriend is Muslim. We have been together for four years. Yesterday, he told me he will not marry me unless I become Muslim. I am so in love with him, but I don’t want to be Muslim. What should I do?
  3. What guides atheists to be good and stops them from doing evil since they don’t believe that hell is real?
