Science and Origins
Our understanding of the first chapters of Genesis has implications for the way we understand the rest of Scripture. And very real, practical matters are caught up in how we answer this question. What is a human being? What is God? How should we think about caring for the natural world? How should we treat our neighbour? How should we treat our dinner? Our starting point has a great deal to say about where we end up.

The gospel is a declaration of what God has done, is doing, and will do in Jesus Christ to take his world back from Satan and sin. It demands our allegiance and our devotion and passion in public no less than in private. Hear the interview inspired by this article here.
The Imperial Gospel
Andrew Sandlin joins us for a podcast interview on the full scope of the gospel. He explains the original context of the word in connection with imperial Greece and Rome, and we talk about some of the reasons Christians have abandoned the task of applying the gospel in public life. Andrew's article that inspired this conversation can be found here.
Two Kinds of Sinners
The goal of Gods grace is a right-living people. It is a grace that transforms a rebel into an obedient child and situates him on the path of righteousness.
Dualism in the Church
The Platonic idea of dualism has been widely discredited, except among some Christians. The ideology that abandons the created world is one that also abandons the Christian cultural task.
Money & Economics
God in His Word has much to say about money and economic issues, and the ways that we produce and use it. There are many perspectives among Christians concerning this issue.

What does a responsible, godly attitude towards wealth look like?
