Know what you believe and why you believe it

WHI-1171 | Extraordinary Gifts Through Ordinary Means

It is wonderful when thoughtful believers take initiative to learn what they believe and why they believe it. But this shouldn’t be something that can only be obtained through a spectacular conference experience or through the ideas of best selling book. Every church should be a garden, and every minister is called to water and tend each plant under his care, so that we’re all nourished by Christ, the life-giving vine.

WHI-1170 | Ordinary Excellence

Some may argue that the call to recover “ordinary discipleship” is simply a call to mediocrity and low expectations. But as we’ll discuss in this program, ordinary discipleship is actually a higher quality form of discipleship that’s sustainable over the long haul, one that doesn’t give up easily when immediate results are unseen. On this program, we’re in part two of our month-long series, Ordinary.

WHI-1169 | Courage in the Ordinary

Have you noticed that words like “extreme” and “revolutionary” have ironically become part of our “ordinary” vocabulary, even in the world of contemporary Christianity? We’re constantly encouraged to “transform the world,” to pursue “radical discipleship,” or to do “big things for Jesus.” What is the cost of this continual use of superlatives? With the help of Tish Harrison Warren, we’ll discuss this issue and point to a recovery of “ordinary discipleship” in a world of hype.

WHI-1168 | The Case for Civility

How should we present our case for the faith in the public square? How have Christians failed at this in recent years? Os Guinness will join me in this program to discuss issues surrounding the recovery of civility and persuasion in a post-Christian culture. Os is the author of numerous books on the intersection of faith and culture including Dining with the Devil, Time for Truth, and The Case for Civility: And Why Our Future Depends on It (originally aired Feb 15, 2009).

WHI-1166 | Fine Tuned for Life

How does science account for the origin of life with all of its amazing complexity and wonder? Since life cannot be created in a laboratory, how do scientists attempt to explain that it came about by accident or chance? Joining the program to discuss this topic is Dean Overman, author of The Case Against Accident & Self-Organization, and Gerald Schroeder, author of The Hidden Face of God (originally aired April 10 & 17, 2005).

WHI-1165 | Stephen Meyer on Darwin’s Doubt

On this edition of White Horse Inn, we talk with Stephen C. Meyer, author of Signature in the Cell, and more recently, Darwin’s Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligent Design. The focus of the conversation centers around Meyer’s thesis that neo-Darwinism cannot fully account for life’s origin or the sudden appearance of complex life forms that we find in the Cambrian explosion.

WHI-1164 | Dogma, Part 2

On this edition of the program we conclude our two-part discussion of dogma. No one can really escape theology. Even the idea that the study of theology is a waste of time is a theological statement. At the end of the day, the question is whether our ideas about God match his own revelation of himself in Scripture.

WHI-1163 | Dogma, Part 1

Many Christians in our day avoid the study of theology in favor of more practical concerns. Dogma, they say, is for eggheads who wish to put God in a box. On the contrary, we argue on this program, knowing who God is and what he has done is the basis of Christian experience. We will discuss the impossibility of having a personal relationship with God if we don’t know anything about him.

WHI-1162 | Found in Christ, Part 2

In Philippians 3, Paul writes about obtaining a righteousness that is not his own but, rather, a righteousness “which is through faith in Christ.” On this program we will unpack this entire chapter and its implications for our understanding of justification and the Christian life.
