In this episode, the guys interview minister and YouTuber Allen Parr at the NRB Convention in Orlando and discuss the necessity for robust theological understanding, especially in an era where it's becoming increasingly difficult to differentiate the real from the artificial.
Exploring the roots of apologetics and its importance in faith conversations, the guys discuss cultural shifts and how faith deconstruction has become prevalent, making it even more critical to have a firm grasp on apologetics.
Then, they move the spotlight onto progressive Christianity, examining its rise within the church and the potential pitfalls it might pose to true biblical understanding. While the progressive movement may seem appealing to some, there is need for caution. The guys emphasize the importance of a grounded biblical understanding to avoid potential misinterpretations that could lead away from true biblical teachings. By thoroughly understanding the Word of God and being aware of false teachings, believers can equip themselves with the necessary tools to safeguard their faith.
These issues and others are also explored in Allen’s book, Misled: 7 Lies That Distort the Gospel (and How You Can Discern the Truth).
This podcast episode offers an insightful journey of faith, theology, and apologetics in the age of progressive Christianity. It challenges listeners to delve deeper into their understanding of faith, scrutinize their beliefs in light of the Bible, and equip themselves to navigate the challenges posed by shifting cultural norms.
This episode was recorded at NRB 2023 International Christian Media Convention in Orlando, Florida.
