Dr. Brown hosts a discussion between atheist Edward Falzon and Dr. Frank Turek and Dr. Alex MacFarland, as Mr. Falzon articulates his issues with the God of the Bible and Drs. Turek and MacFarland respond. According to Falzon, “we’re good people in spite of the bible, not because of it, and it’s time to set this Iron-age nonsense aside, for good.”  Listen live here 2-4 pm EST, and call into the show at (866) 348 7884 with your questions and comments.

 

Hour 1:      

 

Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: For me it is absolutely irrational to deny the existence of the Bible. The One who’s Truth has been my bedrock and foundation for more than 40 years.

 

Hour 2: 

 

Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: Let us pray for those who do not know God and actively reject Him. Discovering Him would be the greatest moment of their lives.

  1. I really enjoyed the debate today!

    I fully agree with Dr. Brown that atheism has no moral framework.

    However, I think Dr. Brown overstated the moral absolutes from believing in God.

    Dr. Brown seems to totally ignore that there is a tremendous amount of subjectivity in how we Christians interpret and apply scripture.

    What Dr. Brown considers a biblical “absolute” other Christians, equally informed and devoted, may disagree.

  2. You’re welcome. Didn’t mean for it to start in the middle. That was the point when I put it in my favorites.

  3. Dr Brown,

    You always have my favourite speakers on. Great job by you and your team.

    PS Everyone should put “atheism” into the search box at the top of the page, and check out the recent LOF shows with GOOD news about faith trends. Many atheists are turning away from the faithlessness of their parents’ generation!

    PPS Did you know that Darwin’s great great great grand daughter has become a Christian. She decided to read and investigate the arguments for herself after reading Dawkin’s book, and found the other faith-filled books more convincing.

  4. I’m surprised that no one responded to my post.
    It’s a legitimate point that gets neglected.

    Believe in an “absolute” God does not mean we have moral absolutes.

    Dr. Brown assumed this point, during whole debate, but never actually explained the connection.

    Yes, God is an absolute truth.

    But Christians have been far from absolute in their morals. And this includes Dr. Brown. (because, this includes us all)

  5. Michael,

    It’s a fair point.

    But my point is that Christians often over-state the connection between an absolute God and absolute morals.

    Yes, God is absolute. But revelation, interpretation and application of His word isn’t absolute at all.
