Certainty Is Not the Same as Knowledge with Allen Crostic- BONUS

Finding Something Real

oIn this extended bonus episode, we’re welcoming back a returning guest. Allen Crostic has a Masters in Christian Apologetics and as a former agnostic, loves to talk about reasons for faith. In this conversation with March co-host, Lucrezia from Italy and myself, Allen addresses Lu's questions regarding lore, hell, doubt, and Jesus. Allen describes knowledge as being different than certainty and why that matters in regards to faith. We talk about doubt and why he's passionate about apologetics (always being prepared to give an answer with gentleness and respect). We also discuss different types of doubt and skepticism. As in all of our previous episodes with Allen, he also shares the significance of believing in Jesus' death, deity, and resurrection, differentiating between a salvation issue and secondary issues.Links:PatreonFSR s2e15 with Allen Crostic - Part 1 and Part 2FSR s4e5 with Allen CrosticFSRs4e9 with Stéphanie Rousselle Gospel Spice Podcast-How do we know that the Resurrection actually Happened?Near Death Experiences - Dr. Gary HabermasWillian Lane CraigAnthony Flew Positive Therapeutic Effects of Intercessory Prayer in a Coronary Care Unit Population  (Randolph C.

Faith Seeking Understanding with Allen Crostic- BONUS

Finding Something Real

In this robust bonus episode, we’re welcoming back a returning guest. Allen Crostic has a Masters in Christian Apologetics and as a former agnostic, loves to talk about reasons for faith. In this conversation with February co-host, Tori Carpenter and myself, Allen shares why he didn't stay in skepticism but searched for answers. Allen describes faith as active trust in what you have good reason to believe is true. We talk about doubt and why he's passionate about apologetics (always being prepared to give an answer with gentleness and respect). Allen details why he rejects the idea of innate human goodness. He also shares the significance of believing in Jesus' death, deity, and resurrection, differentiating between a salvation issue and secondary, in-house issues. There are graphic descriptions of human evil & a couple four letter words for excrement are shared in this conversation with Allen.
