Addressing 12 controversial issues about Christianity such as the Bible’s teaching on gender and sexuality, the reality of heaven and hell, and more, our guest will discuss how current psychological and scientific research actually aligns with the teachings from the Bible. Learn how to answer, with grace and truth, some of the criticisms of the Christian faith.
Scientific research shows how sexual activity releases brain chemicals that trigger emotional bonding between partners. Breaking these bonds can have damaging effects on the brain such as depression and difficulty bonding with someone else in the future. Our guest, a board-certified obstetrician/gynecologist, joins us to offer a Christian "philosophy of sexuality" and presents facts to help us understand why "safe sex" isn't as safe as it seems.
