Richard Dawkins Converts to Cultural Christianity?

Once known as the leading figure of the Four Horsemen of New Atheism, Richard Dawkins made a name for himself for his vitriol against religion in general and Christianity in particular. So, then, it surprised many people to hear him self-identify as a cultural Christian. While he rejects the truth claims of Christianity, he still seems to see value in the impact of Christianity, at least in comparison to some other worldviews. Is this new from Dawkins? What should we make of the comment itself? Steve and Wes sat down to discuss them in this week’s edition of the AC Podcast.

Jesus is Coming, Look Busy? A Theology of Rest

Rest: an event that often eludes the entrepreneur, parents, and ministry leaders, among many others. As we observe the remainder of the Holy Week on Good Friday and Easter, a person should naturally be reflecting on the finished work of the cross. However, the scriptures outline that there is still much work to be done for the sake of the gospel, while also instructing us to find rest in God. So what is the true sabbath, and how should it be observed? Join Troy and Steve on this week’s episode of the AC Podcast to hear their thoughts.

Divinity of Jesus? Prove It. Part 2

Didn’t Jesus say that the Father is greater than he is? Didn’t he call the Father his God? Isn’t he called the “firstborn” of God’s creation? One of the core teachings of Christianity is the claim that Jesus is God. Yet, some verses seem to contradict this very claim. Andy, Steve, and Wes continue their discussion on the deity of Jesus this week by addressing some verses commonly brought up by those who reject this essential teaching of Christianity.

Divinity of Jesus? Prove It. Part 1

One thing that sets Christianity apart is our view of Jesus as God. This core teaching is connected to other core teachings of the Church such as the doctrine of the Holy Trinity. So, it’s no surprise that those who reject Christian orthodoxy often come at it by denying the deity of Jesus. How would you back up the claim that Jesus is God? If you’re not sure, you’ve come to the right place. Andy, Steve, and Wes sat down to address this important topic in this week’s episode of the AC Podcast.

The Church of Psychedelics

The popularity of psychedelics in the West, particularly in the pursuit of spiritual experiences, is only becoming more and more popular. For this week’s podcast Wes interviews Will Do, who grew up in a Buddhist household in Toronto and ended up later in his life following several New Age practices – including the partaking of several psychedelic substances. Will’s desire to find truth ultimately led him out of the New Age and hallucinogenic substances and into following the one who is The Truth.

Lowkey Racism

February is a month popularized by celebrating Black History Month. As such, we decided it would be appropriate to have an episode discussing the complexities of racism.

In this week’s episode the podcast team of Troy, Andy Steve and Wes seek to look at the biblical grounding for diversity while sharing their experiences with race.

Top 50: The Church and Global Persecution

It’s easy for us to let our immediate church context define what the Church (capital “C”) looks like around the world. This is particularly so for those of us who live in a country where being a Christian is relatively easy. Today, Apologetics Canada brings you an eye-opening interview. Listen in on the conversation Steve had with Rev. Gary Stagg, the Executive Director of Open Doors Canada. They discussed Open Door’s 2024 World Watchlist, an annual list produced by Open Doors to rank the top 50 most dangerous countries to be a Christian. They talk about several notable countries mentioned on the list, and what is going on for the churches in those countries.

Out of the Ashes: Uncovering History with A.I.

Buried, burnt, and bygone. An entire library of ancient scrolls was buried under the ash and lava of Mt. Vesuvius in the city of Herculaneum, a Roman village less than 20km from the famous city of Pompei. But with some amazing new technology, these scrolls are being unrolled (digitally at least) and we can peer through the charred ash and carbon to read them for the first time in nearly 2000 years. Wes, Andy, and Troy get together on this week’s podcast to talk about the Herculaneum papyri and other advances in technology that have an impact on helping us have confidence in the historical evidence of the Bible.
