Busting Shroud Myths: Did Carbon 14 dating prove that The Shroud of Turin was a fake?

8/29/2019
More
Jessica Spitz, writing recently for NBCNews.com, basically asserts that science has proven - again and again - that The Shroud of Turin is conclusively a fake. The centerpiece of her argument is the carbon dating of The Shroud. She writes: Forensic scientists have once again concluded that the Shroud of Turin, supposedly the burial cloth Jesus was wrapped in after his crucifixion, was artificially created. The Shroud, which is kept in the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist...

Shroud of Turin Overview: The Knight of The Shroud (Shroud mini-series, episode 2)

8/16/2019
More
Today, I think it would be helpful to have an episode that takes a broad and wide view of The Shroud - that covers all of the basics, so that we’re all on the same page. That’s the focus of this episode - let’s call it an overview of The Shroud of Turin, but the material we cover won’t all be introductory level. As I mentioned in the first episode, I first heard about The Shroud way back in the very early 80s from In Search of. PLAY CLIP Hearing Mr. Spock - Leonard Nimoy -...

Episode 8: The Shroud of Turin Introduction

7/26/2019

Today’s episode is a beginning. It does not YET represent rigorous research, but only a skimming. My opinion at the beginning of this journey is a middle opinion. Call me a Shroud agnostic, at least for now. There are Shroud atheists out there that quickly and completely dismiss the Shroud. They may be right, but I’m not sure they’ve thoroughly researched their conclusions. Likewise, many faithful Shroud believers seemingly assume its real and don’t really interact with some legitimate...

Episode 7: What does John 3:16 Really Mean?

Today’s Question: What does John 3:16 REALLY MEAN? Are we wrong about the most famous verse in the Bible?. John 3:16 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.- for most of my life it has been the most famous verse in the Bible. It’s only rival today is ‘Judge not that ye not be judged’. More on that soon. Spurgeon: OF all the stars in the sky the pole-star is the most useful...

Episode 6: Bible Myths and Factoids

Shownotes below are unrefined, unedited and unattributed. I'll eventually fix that. Today we’re talking about the Bible itself - the longest verses, books, chapters, etc. Chapters and verses are NOT found in the original autographs, or writings of the Books of the Bible. These books were written like letters and books, and did not have chapter divisions or verses, or even punctuation like modern books. Prior to the 800s, the Bible was divided up in various ways, but it wasn’t...

Episode #5 What is Gossip, and why is it so Delicious to our Ears?

7/23/2019
More
The church has been talking about gossip for a very, very long time! Clement of Rome, who likely knew Peter and John (and died in 99AD) Wrote this about gossip: Since, then, we are a holy portion, we should do everything that makes for holiness. We should flee from slandering, vile and impure embraces, drunkenness, rioting, filthy lusts, detestable adultery and disgusting arrogance. “For God,” says Scripture, “resists the arrogant but gives grace to the humble.” We should attach...

Note: The Shownotes and Transcript below are a bit of a trainwork editing wise. I'll polish them up soon! C.S. Lewis from His essay The Seeing Eye, found in Christian Reflections: 1963, 6 years before the Moon Landing. (Discussing Space travel) a more practical issue will arise when, if ever, we discover rational creatures on other planets. I think myself, this is a very remote contingency. The balance of probability is against life on any other planet of the solar system. We shall...

Episode 4: What is the Unforgivable sin?? It's a terrifying reality: Jesus warned His disciples and the Pharisees that there was a sin that could be committed that was unpardonable - unforgivable for all eternity. People have speculated and worried about this teaching of Jesus for hundreds of years. What precisely is the unpardonable sin? How can we know whether or not we've done it? Let's dive in!
