Today you will hear the amazing story of a man who journeyed from gay activism and distrust of religion to becoming a Christian. Exploring New Age teachings, existentialist philosophy, and postmodernism, our guest was left dissatisfied. But then Jesus showed up in his life in a highly unexpected way and led him down a path he never imagined. Learn how love can be transformed in a radically new and meaningful way.
Some say science and religion have been at war with each other for centuries but is that true? Is religion really anti-science? Join us as we explore seven of the most popular and pernicious myths about science and religion. Our guest will lay out the facts to show how far the conventional wisdom departs from reality and he will show how these myths have proliferated over the past four centuries and how they still exert influence today.
