In this field episode of the podcast, Ben Virgo of Christian Heritage London learns about Joe Boot's own story how he came to be an apologist, some of his formative authors, and the nature of human beings and the apologetic task.
In our contemporary culture, we are faced daily with the radical redefinition of something so intrinsic to us as human beings: our sexuality. This coincides with a rise in paganism, which is not coincidental.
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.
John Stevens, National Director of the Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches (FIEC), has written about the resignation of Tim Farron as leader of the Liberal Democrats, arguing that Christians should "advocate for a truly plural society" and be "willing to permit sexual freedom to others." Joe Boot critiques this pluralistic vision, arguing that Stevens hasn't differentiated between a crime and a sin. We should apply the Bible to all areas, not capitulate to pluralism.
