M&A036 - Public Q&A! Do We Have the REAL Bible? (w/ Patrick Walsh & Dr. Chris Berg)

Miracles & Atheists

As if hosting an uncomfortable conversation in public weren’t enough, we gave the microphone to our audience, and allowed for a raw and emotional Q&A session with our guests, Dr. Chris Berg of Spirit of Truth Outreach, professor of theology and apologetics at Ecclesia College and Patrick Walsh, leader of The Atheists, Agnostics and Apostates group of Raleigh. This is Part 2 of our latest LIVE podcasting event at The Raleigh Market, so if you haven’t listened to Part 1, you may want to do that now... The Q&A was a lot of fun.  We really enjoyed engaging with the audience and we learned a few things along the way too: First, NEVER hand your wireless microphone to a stranger in the audience...maintain 100% possession of the mic, and hold it towards their covid-free mouth.   Second, give the hosts an opportunity to answer a few questions - they need part of the action as well. Third, bring a timer. This way, the audience can be more succinct and more people can ask questions.  We had some good questions that may even make you a bit uncomfortable (or not)...enjoy.    Apply to be our Guest on M&A The Miracles & Atheists Livestream Connect with M&A on Facebook Follow M&A on Instagram Watch M&A on YouTube Follow M&A on Twitter Rate & Review M&A on iTunes Listen on your favorite podcast platform

M&A035 - Do We Have the REAL Bible? (w/ Patrick Walsh & Dr. Chris Berg - LIVE! At The Raleigh Market)

Miracles & Atheists

Oh, we did it again! Podcasting IN PUBLIC for the 2nd time (whew)!  That’s right, we set up a tent, brought our equipment and some good outdoor speakers, and ran everything off battery power so we could talk about a very non-superficial conversation...the accuracy and reliability of the Bible: Is the Bible reliable? Do we have the real thing? Who really wrote the Bible? Where did we get it from? Our first guest is Mr. Patrick Walsh, leader of The Atheists, Agnostics and Apostates group of Raleigh.  Patrick considers himself an agnostic atheist, meaning he does not know if God exists which makes him agnostic, but also sees no good reason to believe, which makes him an atheist as well.   Patrick does not believe in any of the miracle stories he’s heard, whether in the Bible or  from personal testimonies.  He wanted to be part of this event not to convert people to atheism, but because he wants people to question their beliefs. He says he wants to live in a world that is more rational and more compassionate, and he thinks faith is not really a reliable pathway to logic or compassion. Also joining us is Dr. Chris Berg.  Dr. Berg is a professor of theology and apologetics at Ecclesia College and founded Spirit of Truth Outreach, engaging students with apologetics and the truth of the Gospel.  He recently released a book called, The New Age Trojan Horse which examines the differences between Christian theology and New Age beliefs. Dr. Berg is always happy to share the truth of the Gospel and defend the Word of God...so let’s get on with it!   Rate & Review Us!

Chris Berg (2015) | Nanny State

Festival of Dangerous Ideas

If we don’t think our fellow citizens are capable of making the right choices about what they eat and drink, why do we think they are capable of voting? Since researcher Chris Berg presented this 2015 FODI talk, this question rings eerily true to what many individuals are experiencing today. Who is best placed to make the decisions for us – we the people, or the state?   Chris Berg is a Senior Fellow at the Institute of Public Affairs, where he specialises in civil liberties, the political economy of regulation, and media and technology policy.
