"Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you." LUKE 10:19
Agnostics, atheists and Deists are all considered freethinkers -- but Jayson X, the Deputy Director of the World Union of Deists, thinks that Deism is the best option. He'll explain why in this segment of God Gave Us Reason, Not Religion.
Deism, agnosticism and atheism are all belief systems, and of the three, Deism is more useful for promoting truth, virtue, and happiness than the others. Of these belief systems, Jayson says that:
Deism is the philosophy that one should base all of one's beliefs on reason and reason leads one to conclude that God exists, or at least probably exists. Agnosticism is the philosophy that one should base all of one's beliefs on reason and reason leads one to conclude that one cannot conclude if God exists or not. Atheism is the philosophy that one should base all of one's beliefs on reason and reason leads one to conclude that God does not exist, or at least probably does not exist.
"Deism promotes virtue more than Agnosticism and Atheism for at least one reason: If God exists, God might reward relatively good humans after death and punish relatively evil humans after death. In other words, if God exists, true justice is likely to exist," Jayson explains. "True justice is when all creatures get exactly what they deserve. Since true justice obviously does not happen before death, it must happen after death for it to exist; and only God has the power to make true justice a reality."
But what if there is no life after death? What if there is no punishment?
Join Jayson and his co-host and fellow Deist, Tim Wingate, as they wade through philosophical ideas about why belief in a God promotes happiness and virtue.

Is God irrelevant to those who are all about science? Is science irrelevant to those who believe in God? Where does religion fit in this equation? Can we as human beings begin to live in a world where science and technology catches up to civilization without feeling that our core beliefs in God aren't in danger? Can we live in a world where we embrace science, technology and God simultaneously and without conflict? What part does religion play? Is it merely old dogma that is no longer applicable in society or does it have its place? Are churches losing their appeal? Is the fire and brimstone message effective? Has religion gone too far? Are we evolved to a greater mindset where guilt based religion and shame is no longer warranted or necessary? Do you believe in the afterlife? Is the Bible a whole truth or a loosely based truth? What is the purpose of human life?

The Apostle Paul warned the Church--both ancient and modern--to recognize and defend against certain enemies: those who come against her from the outside and those who attack from within. Today, that warning still holds true but the greatest danger by far is not the Atheists, the Agnostics or even the anti-Christian mainstream media--the greatest danger is the corrupt and apostate shepherds who infest our seminaries and colleges and who stand in the way of anyone fighting to preach the Gospel.
"For the time will come when men will not endure sound doctrine but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables." 2 Timothy 4:3-4
Walter Martin tackles the cancer of Liberal Theology within the Church...on Night Watch.
Atheism is a matter of belief, or more accurately, a matter of non-belief. An atheist does not believe in god or gods. But there are some atheists, myself included, that take things at step further. I believe gods do not exist.
Some people call this positive statement "strong atheism." Some say it is unnecessary, and places a burden of proof on the atheist that should not be there.
I'll give my perspective on this, and how it has changed. I'l talk about what exactly I believe and why.
Plus your calls. I believe the awesome sause will flow. Prove me right!
I've mentioned this several times in the past on this show but I will always be thankful to the atheist I encountered about ten years ago on a lonely night near Detroit at 3 in the morning. We had a discussion about God, life, and faith to which he asked me questions I did not have answers to. He led me on a path of entering apologetics and learning to love my Lord with even greater fervor.
On this episode of the Parker J Cole show, join me as I sit down and chat with Holly Ordway, author of the book, Not God's Type: An Atheist Academic Lays Down Her Arms as she discusses her journey from believing faith was superstitious nonsense to surrending her life to Christ.

If there is no resurrection, there is no hope and no future for any of us. But the God of all creation says He commands the things that are not as if they were; He calls them into existence by His own laws, organizes and reorganizes all forms of energy and matter, and annhilates them when He's finished. Why? Because all power is His in heaven and on earth. Tonight, Walter Martin explores the magnificent power of God and the Gospel of the Resurrection.
Did giants really exist? Are women as valuable as men? Did Jesus say he was the Son of God? Words are the vehicles of thought, and the Bible has plenty of them, so it is vitally important that we get the meanings right. In this fascinating look at interpreting the Bible, Walter Martin discusses the correct way to approach and analyze biblical passages, and emphasizes the importance of understanding the Bible in the defense of the Christian faith.
So I did another debate, this time on morality. Is morality objective or subjective? I wasn't too impressed with how the debate went down, mostly because I didn't get to do all the talking. If I HAD done most of the talking, this is what I would have said.
Plus your calls. The awesomeness returns tonight
On Sunday, June 9 2013, I had poet, writer, and composer Ann Weber Ammar on the show. We had really interesting and full program talking about her conversion to the Catholic Church. Her journey to the Church came after periods of Agnosticism, secular pursuits, two years of studying Jehovah Witnessism, and Evangelical Catholicism. Ann talked about a number of occasions when God stepped out of eternity to encounter her and give her gentle nudges of graces. The song heard at the end of the program is ‘Walking By Faith’. It was composed by Ann Ammar and a part of the ministry that God has given her and teammate Marianne. You can find out more details about her rich journey and some of the work she is doing at her blog (http://walkingwithourlord.wordpress.com/) and their website (http://www.walkingwithourjesus.com/) where Ann’s inspirational faith testimonies, spiritual poems, original songs and lyrics inspired by the Holy Spirit are contained This was one of the most interesting conversion stories I've ever heard. Very rich! Listening to the archived broadcast is definitely worth your time.
