Rank #1: Questions to ask my LGBTQ friends

Podcast cover
Read more
A 14-year-old young lady wrote to Frank a question about reaching out to her bisexual friend.  How can she do that effectively?  This is a sensitive and emotional issue in our culture today, and many people are ready to pounce on you with several objections (and names) if you express the biblical view of sexuality.  Frank offers some advice and facts about the situation to help improve the chances that any outreach effort will yield light rather than heat.
Frank also responds to questions about:
The morality of marijuana use
How much is America sliding toward judgment like ancient Israel?
Atheist objections which assert that God is just a convenient answer to the beginning and fine-tuning of the universe

Rank #2: Evidence for the Exodus

Podcast cover
Read more
How many times have you heard that there is no evidence for the exodus, particularly no evidence from Egypt?  That claim is demonstrably false!  Archaeologist Dr. Titus Kennedy joins Frank along with Dr. Stephen Meyer of the Discovery Institute to review a list of eight findings, most from Egypt, that corroborate the Bible’s account of the exodus.  In fact, Dr. Kennedy recently traveled to northern Sudan (Egypt in biblical times) to confirm the oldest inscription ever discovered of Yahweh.  It's from 1400 B.C. and sheds amazing light on the exodus.
You’ll be able to read and see all of this when Dr. Kennedy’s new book, Unearthing the Bible, is published later this Spring.  But right now, you can hear some of the highlights.  Don’t miss this one.  Fascinating!

Rank #3: Dr. Dan Treats a Coronavirus Patient

Podcast cover
Read more
Dr. Dan Eichenberger, MD, is back to shoot more sanity into a sensationalized situation.  As Christians, we are commanded to obey what our government wants us to do in this situation.  But that doesn’t mean we have to buy into the fear caused by a media that is hyping this entire coronavirus issue.  The media is skewing stats and reporting half-truths.  Dr. Dan corrects the misinformation and gives us a first-hand account of treating a coronavirus patient himself.
Here are some of the questions and issues Frank and Dr. Dan discuss:
Why is the media not reporting the death rate? What is the death rate?
How contagious is this compared to other viruses?
You’re treating a coronavirus patient right now. What drugs are working?
We hear a lot about flattening the curve. Explain what that is, and will we be successful?
California Governor Gavin Newsom thinks 25 million in his state of 40 million will get infected. Is that reasonable?
We hear we have fewer hospital beds than in Europe. How does that give the wrong impression?
Why is Korea beyond the problem but Italy still has it?
What do you think will happen in the US with the infection rate in the coming months?
What is your advice to the Christians and non-Christians listening to this?

Please share this with others.

Rank #4: Is it time to run and hide?

Podcast cover
Read more
Is it time to run and hide?  Should you cut yourself off from other people because of the coronavirus?  Is the level of concern reasonable or overblown?
Dr. Dan Eichenberger, MD, is Frank’s guest, and he gives a shot of sanity into our sensationalized environment.  Among the questions he and Frank investigate:
What is unique about the coronavirus? Is this anything new?
How deadly is it?
Up to 50,000 people in the US will die of the flu this year. How many from the coronavirus?
What will most who get the virus experience?
Does it make sense to shut all large gatherings down, including church services?
If you were a benevolent dictator of America, what would you do?

Frank looks to the scriptures and other Christians (including C.S. Lewis) for how Christians should live in the face of risk.  The truth is, we always live with the threat of death. All of us also have a virus called sin.  Christians know the cure, and people right now might be more open to considering that cure.

Rank #5: Does logic apply to God? And other questions

Podcast cover
Read more
Can we put God in a box of our own logic?  Aren’t His ways higher than our ways?  Did God invent logic?  Did human beings invent it?
Frank goes deep into those questions to the foundation of reality.  He also takes a fresh look at an often-misinterpreted passage in Isaiah 55 about God’s ways being higher than ours.
Other questions addressed in this show include:
Is morality subjective and based on the majority vote?
Does every negation really imply an affirmation?
How can Hell be separation from God if God is everywhere?

Rank #6: Killing in the name of God?

Podcast cover
Read more
If God told you to kill someone, what would you do?  Wouldn’t you seek a psychiatrist?  Why did Abraham almost go through with killing his son Isaac?  How did Abraham know God told him and not a demon?  How does the violence in the Old Testament differ from that in the Qur’an?  And does God really give us free choice if it’s either “worship me or go to Hell!”
Atheists often challenge Christians with questions like this.  In fact, Frank tells of an atheist asking some of these questions this week at the University of Nebraska.  How does one respond to this and other questions?  Listen to find out!

Rank #7: Evil is a powerful argument FOR God

Podcast cover
Read more
Many are asking the questions, “If there is a good God, why does he allow viruses?  Why doesn’t he stop evil?”  In fact, some are claiming that evil proves that God doesn’t exist.
But Frank lays out the case that evil is a powerful argument FOR God.  He cites twenty assumptions that people make when they claim the contrary, and most of these assumptions are best explained by God.  The show also contains important announcements that will give you hope each day during the coronavirus lockdown (Join us for the new Hope One LIVESTREAM each weekday at 11:30 am ET).

Rank #8: Cosmic Child Abuse? Answering Moral Objections to the Atonement

Podcast cover
Read more
For two thousand years, Christians have understood the death of Jesus to be substitutionary—a sacrifice that paid for our sins. From the earliest creeds to the teaching of the New Testament to the writings of the Church Fathers to today, this has been a core belief of Christianity throughout its history. But in modern times, this idea is being repudiated as “Cosmic Child Abuse.” On today’s show, we are going to address these questions:
• What is the historic belief of the Christian church on atonement?
• Why does God have wrath and how can that be a good thing?
• Is penal substitutionary atonement a late invention of medieval Christians?
• If God required the sacrifice of his Son, doesn’t that make him a Divine child abuser?
• If I can just forgive people without a sacrifice, why can’t God?

Rank #9: The Most Influential Life in History

Podcast cover
Read more
Who was the most influential person in history?  It was a person who never led an army, never held office, never wrote a book, never traveled more than 200 miles from where he was born.  Yet today, he’s the center of humanity.  How so?  Because Jesus of Nazareth rose from the dead.  If there was no resurrection, how could that life be the history’s most influential life?
Join Frank as he presents evidence that Jesus rose from the dead, and reminds us, with a graphic account of the passion, the kind of suffering Jesus had to endure to buy our freedom.

Rank #10: Conservatives on Campus with Charlie Kirk

Podcast cover

Why should Christians be interested in politics? What political principles should they advocate? Is anyone teaching the principles of political freedom, free markets and limited government on high school and college campuses?
Charlie Kirk is the founder and president of TurningPoint USA, which has about 2,000 clubs on high school and college campuses. He joins Frank for an enlightening discussion that ranges from how to articulate conservative principles, to Christians and President Trump, to why would God allow evil. Charlie is only 26 years old, but, as you’ll see, he has wisdom and insights beyond his years.

Rank #11: Dr. Dan and Hope

Podcast cover

Frank gets an update on coronavirus from Dr. Daniel Eichenberger, MD. What is he seeing in the hospitals? How are his patients doing? Why are the predictions so wildly different from model to model? (Because there are so many assumptions for which we don’t have good data. This provides another illustration of why science doesn’t say anything, scientists do). In Dr. Dan’s judgment, what’s the best way forward? (For more, and to ask Dr. Dan questions, join Frank and Dr. Dan on Monday, April 6, at 11:30 am ET on the HOPE ONE live stream at CrossExamined.org, our YouTube channel, or FB page).
Frank then further investigates why God allows evil and shows where our true hope comes from. And everyone can have that hope for free!

Rank #12: Live Not by Lies with Rod Dreher

Podcast cover
Read more
For years, émigrés from the former Soviet bloc have been telling New York Times best-selling author, Rod Dreher they see telltale signs of "soft" totalitarianism cropping up in America. In his new book, Live Not by Lies: A Manual for Christian Dissidents, Dreher amplifies the alarm sounded by these brave men. “America is sleepwalking into soft totalitarianism. If we ignore the prophetic voices of those who survived Communism, we deserve what we get,” says Dreher.  We are walking into a trap, and the solution is much more than politics.   
Mr. Dreher joins Frank to expose this encroaching problem and offer some solutions.  All Christians need to listen to this!  If you begin to live by lies now, you will not resist when you’re pressured to deny Christ.

Rank #13: The Strongest Argument for God

Podcast cover
Read more
There is an argument for God that works even if the universe is eternal, even if macroevolution is true, even if a person believes that science is the supreme source of knowledge. It’s an argument that is as old as Aristotle, yet few talk about it today. Tricia Scribner, co-editor of the new book, Answering the Music Man, joins Frank for a fascinating discussion that unpacks this ancient argument in modern terms. Frank and Tricia show that science wouldn’t even work unless the premises of this argument were true.

Rank #14: ENCORE: Frank’s interview with Ravi Zacharias

Podcast cover
Read more
Frank interviews the Great Ravi Zacharias who has been bringing grace and truth all over the world for nearly fifty years.   Ravi’s new devotional book is called The Logic of God, and the two apologists discuss many of its insights into this fascinating program.
Here are some of the questions Frank asks Ravi:
Why did you write The Logic of God?
What does it mean to be a moral law apologist?
How do you respond to the objection that Christianity is too exclusive?  It claims to be the only way!
You write that Jesus claimed to be the truth and, therefore, to reject Jesus is to govern yourself with a lie. That’s profound.  In my experience taking questions on college campuses, people would rather govern themselves with lies than submit to the truth.   What have you found to be the most effective method of dealing with people who don’t want Christianity to be true?
 In the West, you say that pain and suffering isn’t as a big a problem as the problem of pleasure.  What do you mean by that?
Young people are struggling with identity, meaning, and purpose.  What is the purpose of life?  Why are we here?
You write, “Jesus does not offer to make bad people good but to make dead people alive.”  Unpack that further for us.
