Progressive Christians Believe the Bible is NOT from the Mind of God?? ep. 20
In this episode, I break down the youtube video of Progressive Christian YouTuber and pastor, Colby Martin. He argues that since the Bible is a "translation of a translation of a translation," we cannot know for sure what the original author's message really was in the biblical text. He also claims that since there are so many "contradictions" in the Bible, it cannot be trusted. Another assertion he makes is that since one Greek word often can be translated in different ways, that it is nearly impossible to know for sure how it is to be translated. This low and skeptical view of Scripture is common to those submerged in Progressive Christianity, a virus of the Faith that is taking hold of many believers who are more liberal in temperament and politics. Tune in for a discussion of how we know we can trust the message of God's Word, and how we can hold various translations accountable to their accuracy in representing the original manuscripts. #ProgressiveChristianity #ProgressiveChristian #ColbyMartin #Unclobber #Bible #BibleTranslations #InterpretingScripture #SolaScriptura  --------------------------------LINKS--------------------------------- Listen to The Science Faith & Reasoning podcast anywhere podcasts are listened to.

Does Truth Exist? (Part 2) Polyamory, KJV Onlyism, and Predestination! feat. Global Vagrant ep. 19
This is Part 2 to the video, "Does Truth Exist?" In this video, we discuss many different topics with regards to truth, such as family structures, transgender ideology, societal norms and lack of morals, King James Onlyism, and when KJV Onlyism can be a dangerous extra-Biblical doctrine for Christians. We discuss predestination and free will, and whether faith is a gift or something we can form on our own. We discuss the tough question: Are babies predestined to Heaven or Hell? Would a just God send aborted babies to Hell? We also go to Twitter to answer a few questions.   Apologies for the unstructured nature of this half of the podcast, but that's what Bonus Hours are for!

Does Truth Exist? (Part 1) feat. Global Vagrant ep. 18
In this video, I sit down with Global Vagrant (the YouTuber who reviews countries/attractions all over the world), to discuss the concept of truth. Does truth exist in an absolute sense? Or is truth relative? Can we determine truth for ourselves? If I identify as something, does that mean I am that thing? It is really important to understand that many secular life philosophies and perspectives are self-defeating. They may claim to be based on relativism, but they cannot be true if they are. For example, if someone says all truth is relative", then they are actually lying. Because if truth is relative, then that statement is relative, meaning it cannot be taken to be true, which would mean it is false. And if that statement is false, then all truth is absolute, which is what the Christian faith and other religious folk have been saying for centuries. Tune in for a very interesting discussion. Apologies ahead of time for how far off the script we went, and for all the strange Star Wars related rabbit holes. This is the first hour of a two-hour podcast.   #Apologetics #ChristianApologetics #Christianity #Truth #DoesTruthExist #AbsoluteTruth #RelativeMorality #morality #atheism #agnosticism #pantheism #theism ----------------------SPECIAL THANKS------------------------   Special Guest Global Vagrant   Global Vagrant YouTube Channel Link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzth1E0lO2SYyl2g-EOY95g Global Vagrant Instagram: https://instagram.com/the_real_global_vagrant?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y=  -----------------------------CONNECT------------------------------   http://www.sci-fr.com   Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/danielfaucett1995   Twitter: https://twitter.com/danielfaucett

Our Passion for Star Wars and its Christian Symbolism feat. College Minister Reed Chambers ep. 17
In this episode, I sit down with long time friend and International Student Ministry leader at Gadsden State Community College, Reed Chambers. We discuss our passion for the Star Wars saga, our experience growing up with the premieres to the prequels were coming out, as well as Christian symbolism in the series as a whole, such as the virgin birth of Anikin, the corruption of the Sith, and the influence of the force, a clear representation of the Holy Spirit. Join us, Star Wars and Lucas Ranch fanboy nerds, as we embark on a seriously Salacious Crumb type of night, full of humor, joy, and fellowship. #StarWars #GeorgeLucas #Christianity #ScienceFaithReasoning #ScienceandFaith #TheGospel #TheGospelandStarWars #SFR #scifr

What Came First: Proteins or DNA? An Argument for Intelligent Design ep. 16
In this episode, I discuss the Central Dogma of Molecular Biology, which is the observation that all living things have DNA, RNA and Protein, and that DNA codes for RNA, and RNA codes for Protein. This "DNA -> RNA -> Protein" system undergirds all living things on Earth. The question is this: Could this system come about by random chance in the prebiotic soup of the early Earth? Assuming there were plenty of DNA nucleotides floating around, could they come together to form a small, 300 nucleotide, meaningful piece of DNA? Also, if all the necessary amino acids were present, could they slam together and form a meaningful/functional protein in a reasonable amount of time? Let's explore some of the probability calculations provided by Dr. Stephen C. Meyer, a former geophysicist and philosopher of science, who has looked at this system extensively. Here's a link to his video on the probability calculation for a 150-amino acid protein forming by chance: https://youtu.be/JQ3hUlU0vR4  #Atheism #Christianity #apologetics #Abiogenesis #IntelligentDesign #Creationism #Evolution #Darwin #DarwinsDoubt #DarwinsBlackBox #MichaelBehe

3 Bad KJV Only Arguments: Part 2 - Isaiah 14:12 vs. Revelation 22:16 / 1 John 5:7 / Acts 8:37 ep. 14
This is Part 2 of 3 Bad KJV Only Arguments. In this second half of my podcast, I discuss three ungrounded arguments that are often presented by King James Onlyists (AKA the KJV Onlyism movement). The first argument is the supposed conflation of Jesus and the Devil in how modern translations render the word Latin word "lucifer" (and the Hebrew word "helel") at Isaiah 14:12; which makes Jesus and the Devil both described as a "morning star", which has led some who read these passages purposefully out of context to conclude that the modern translations are saying that Jesus fell from Heaven, an understanding that no one has organically gained from reading the text as the original author's wrote it. The second argument is how most modern translations have a different reading at 1 John 5:7, with a footnote stating what the majority of manuscripts and most reliable manuscripts say in that section. The third argument is how Acts 8:37 is either "missing" from modern translations, or put in brackets with a footnote stating the manuscript issues with the KJV reading. All of these arguments, if investigated, point to the higher accuracy of the NASB and ESV, especially with the study Bible versions, when compared the King James Version. However, these are still areas of controversy that are highly debated within the KJV-Only NIFB movement. NOTE: All of my KJV-Onlyism episodes are made completely out of love for our brothers and sisters in Christ who are KJV Only. It is my hope that Christians have a defendable, reasonable, and practical faith based on truth. These videos are simply to point Christians to the truth of the history of transmission, manuscript evidence, and the translation process with regards to the Bible.   #KJVOnly #Apologetics #KJV1611 #ModernBibleTranslations #JamesWhite #KingJamesOnlyControversy #StevenAnderson #Christianity #KJVOnlyism #ScienceFaithReasoning #NIFBMovement

3 Bad KJV Only Arguments: Part 1 - Breaking Down the King James Bible Only Movement ep. 13
In this video, I discuss the King James Only movement, focusing on how we should judge Bible translations. All Bible translations should be judged on how accurately they depict the original writings of the authors of the Bible, not on how close they resemble the King James Version. There are several good and honest modern Bible translations, such as the NASB, ESV, and NKJV, all of which are bizarre targets of KJV-Only argumentation. However, if you investigate the claims of KJV-Onlyists, they are demonstrably false and misleading. I discuss a problem with the KJV translation: the Romans 13:9 vs. Matthew 19:18 mistake where the same Greek word is translated as "murder" in one passage, and "kill" in another. With identical context, the words should be translated identically: this is a simple translation mistake; however, those fully encamped in the KJV-Only movement must perform mental gymnastics to explain how this is not a simple error. In "3 Bad KJV Only Arguments Part 2 ep. 14", I discuss the 3 bad arguments.   NOTE: All of my KJV-Onlyism episodes are made completely out of love for our brothers and sisters in Christ who are KJV Only. It is my hope that Christians have a defendable, reasonable, and practical faith based on truth. These videos are simply to point Christians to the truth of the history of transmission, manuscript evidence, and the translation process with regards to the Bible.  #KJVOnly #Apologetics #KJV1611 #ModernBibleTranslations #JamesWhite #KingJamesOnlyControversy #StevenAnderson #Christianity #KJVOnlyism #ScienceFaithReasoning #NIFBMovement --------------------------------LINKS---------------------------------   Listen to The Science Faith & Reasoning Podcast anywhere Podcast are listened to: here is the Apple Podcasts Link: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast...   Get a copy of my first book, Five Flaming Arrows: https://www.amazon.com/Five-Flaming-A...

God Came to Make Dead People Live / The Gospel Presentation / ep. 12
In this message, I discuss four questions in relation to the Gospel: 1. What is our natural condition as humans?  2. How should we see lost people?  3. How are we Saved?  4. When are We Saved?   #TheGospel #Apologetics #GraceOfGod #Christianity   The key verses in my message are Ephesians 2:1-10, Titus 3:1-3, Matthew 19:23-26, Jonah chapter 4, Romans 3:23, 6:23, 10:9, 10:17.    The central concept I wanted to focus on in this message is the common depravity of mankind when they are lost and without Christ. In order to understand the Gospel, we must recognize that all people, without Christ, are lost, desperate, and dead in their transgressions. Only through the power of Jesus can anyone dead spirit be raised to newness of life.   Thank you for listening, please like, share, and subscribe!  --------------------------------LINKS---------------------------------   Listen to The Science Faith & Reasoning Podcast anywhere Podcast are listened to: here is the Apple Podcasts Link: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/science-faith-reasoning/id1435704787    Get a copy of my first book, Five Flaming Arrows: https://www.amazon.com/Five-Flaming-Arrows-Daniel-Faucett/dp/1546537716/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=Five+Flaming+Arrows&qid=1560616992&s=gateway&sr=8-1    Read one of my short stories: http://www.faucettjournal.com/short-stories.html   ----------------------SPECIAL THANKS------------------------   Outro song provided by ShepMusic: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChJputX-cVDPJWp7YVeGZYQ    -----------------------------CONNECT------------------------------   My website: http://www.faucettjournal.com    Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/authordanielfaucett   Twitter: https://twitter.com/danielfaucett

Abraham Piper (John Piper's Son) is a Raging Atheist on TikTok?? ep. 11
In this video, I compare and contrast two videos of John Piper's Son, Abraham Piper. In one video, the young man seems to be what you would expect from the son of a well-known pastor as he introduces his father on stage. In the next video, 11 years later, Abraham makes a TikTok video attacking a passage in Ecclesiastes 4:1-3. For whatever reason, something has turned off this man from Christianity. Listen as we explore the interesting dynamic of how a mega-pastor's son ends up an atheist.  #JohnPiper #AbrahamPiper #MegaChurch #LeavingTheChurch #ExChristian  Abraham Piper introduces his father to speak: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lqww88CpBHo    John Piper answers the question, "How did I Fail my Unbelieving Children?" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KdW6MrXsI44&t=638s   John Piper discusses, "Should a pastor continue in ministry if one of his children proves to be an unbeliever?"  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V9R7v3XFBec --------------------------------LINKS--------------------------------- Listen to The Science Faith & Reasoning Podcast anywhere Podcast are listened to: here is the Apple Podcasts Link: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/science-faith-reasoning/id1435704787    Get a copy of my first book, Five Flaming Arrows: https://www.amazon.com/Five-Flaming-Arrows-Daniel-Faucett/dp/1546537716/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=Five+Flaming+Arrows&qid=1560616992&s=gateway&sr=8-1    Read one of my short stories: http://www.faucettjournal.com/short-stories.html   ----------------------SPECIAL THANKS------------------------   Intro Beat Provided By https://freebeats.io   Outro music by Shep Music: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChJputX-cVDPJWp7YVeGZYQ    -----------------------------CONNECT------------------------------   My website: http://www.faucettjournal.com    Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/authordanielfaucett   Twitter: https://twitter.com/danielfaucett

Five Applications of Noah's Ark to Modern Times ep. 10
n this sermon, I share 5 applications of Noah's Ark to the modern era. These five points are: 1. The path is wide that leads to destruction.  2. God has asked all of us to do something big.  3. If we really believe something is going to happen, our actions follow our belief.  4. The road to destruction is a gentle slope.  5. Destruction is coming again, but there is a way of escape.   #NoahsArk #Noah #TheArk #Genesis #TheFlood #TheGreatFlood #Flood #Christianity #Sermon #ChristianApologetics   --------------------------------LINKS---------------------------------   Listen to The Science Faith & Reasoning Podcast anywhere Podcast are listened to: here is the Apple Podcasts Link: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/science-faith-reasoning/id1435704787    Get a copy of my first book, Five Flaming Arrows: https://www.amazon.com/Five-Flaming-Arrows-Daniel-Faucett/dp/1546537716/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=Five+Flaming+Arrows&qid=1560616992&s=gateway&sr=8-1    Read one of my short stories: http://www.faucettjournal.com/short-stories.html   ----------------------SPECIAL THANKS------------------------   Beat Provided By https://freebeats.io   Outro song "Stacks" provided by Shep: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChJputX-cVDPJWp7YVeGZYQ    -----------------------------CONNECT------------------------------   My website: http://www.faucettjournal.com    Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/authordanielfaucett   Twitter: https://twitter.com/danielfaucett

Can Christians "Unclobber" Leviticus? Response to a Progressive Christian Sermon ep. 9
In this video, I (Daniel Faucett) offer a thorough review of Colby Martin's sermon named "Unclobbering Leviticus". In his sermon, the up and coming progressive pastor attempts to make the case that the Levitical Law did not prohibit same-sex acts, as long as they were committed by individuals identifying as homosexual. This pastor claimed that the Levitical Law only prohibits those who identify as heterosexual from participating in same-sex acts, as though the sexual orientation determines what is sin for one and what isn't sin for another. There's just one problem, there's not a biblical case that supports this view. Progressive Christianity is founded on following the culture and appeasing the culture through any means necessary, often reinterpreting the Bible in order for it to be less offensive to today's society. This movement has therefore rendered itself inconsistent, ungrounded, and false. It teaches a Gospel that doesn't challenge us or call out our sin for what it is: a rebellion against a holy God.   #Unclobber #ProgressiveChristianity #ColbyMartin #Leviticus18 #UnclobberNovel #UnclobberSeries #Romans1 #UnclobberingLeviticus #UnclobberingRomans1 --------------------------------LINKS--------------------------------- Listen to The Science Faith & Reasoning Podcast anywhere Podcast are listened to: here is the Apple Podcasts Link: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/science-faith-reasoning/id1435704787 Get a copy of my first book, Five Flaming Arrows: https://www.amazon.com/Five-Flaming-Arrows-Daniel-Faucett/dp/1546537716/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=Five+Flaming+Arrows&qid=1560616992&s=gateway&sr=8-1   Read one of my short stories: http://www.faucettjournal.com/short-stories.html -----------------------------CONNECT------------------------------ My website: http://www.faucettjournal.com     Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/authordanielfaucett  Twitter: https://twitter.com/danielfaucett

Faucett Sermon on The Sting of Death / Steven Huddleston ep. 7
Here's is my sermon from Jan. 24th. As Christians, when we die, we win. To God be the glory.  Romans 8:28, "And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose." (ESV)  1st Corinthians 15:50-58, "I tell you this, brothers: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality. When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.” “O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain."

For it is the Word of God that has had the greatest impact on my life, and I know it is only God's power that can do the same to others.

Are Fetuses Human Beings? ep. 4
In this video, I go over scientific reasoning for why unborn babies are human beings that are entitled to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. I focus on part b of my argument for Life, which is detailed below: a. Fetuses are living things at all stages (according to scientific consensus) b. Fetuses are humans at all stages (individuals, with unique human properties and unique human genetic information)  c. Fetuses possess human life complexity potential. i. Sperm and egg do not contain human life complexity potential when separate from one another, neither do in vitro fertilized eggs. d. Fetuses have Thrive and Contribution Potential. e. Fetuses are innocent individuals. f. Conclusion: Living Humans, Individuals, possessing human Life Complexity potential, as well as Thrive and Contribution Potential, who have not committed any crimes, should not be killed.   #ProLife #ProChoice #ArgumentForLife -----------------------------CONNECT------------------------------   My website: http://www.faucettjournal.com Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/authordanielfaucett  Twitter: https://twitter.com/danielfaucett
