A couple of listeners wrote emails to express their disagreement with some of what Frank said in the show “Why Did Evangelicals Vote for Trump?” In this show Frank responds by investigating Jesus’s rebuke of the Pharisees (the politicians of Israel) in Matthew 23:23 and then by asking three questions: 1. What is the purpose of government? 2. What is your primary reason for choosing a president? 3. Who, of the available candidates, will best fulfill that purpose? As you’ll hear the elephant in the room isn’t Trump and his personality. The primary reason we choose a president has to do with a policy, not personality (although personality is still important). Frank responds to other objections from the emails, and also answers this question from a parent: How do I respond to a child who claims not to believe in God anymore?

Questions to ask my LGBTQ friends • February 16, 2020 • Frank Turek
A 14-year-old young lady wrote to Frank a question about reaching out to her bisexual friend. How can she do that effectively? This is a sensitive and emotional issue in our culture today, and many people are ready to pounce on you with several objections (and names) if you express the biblical view of sexuality. Frank offers some advice and facts about the situation to help improve the chances that any outreach effort will yield light rather than heat. Frank also responds to questions about: · The morality of marijuana use · How much is America sliding toward judgment like ancient Israel? · Atheist objections which assert that God is just a convenient answer to the beginning and fine-tuning of the universe
Cosmic Child Abuse? Answering Moral Objections to the Atonement • February 8, 2020 • Alisa Childers
For two thousand years, Christians have understood the death of Jesus to be substitutionary—a sacrifice that paid for our sins. From the earliest creeds to the teaching of the New Testament to the writings of the Church Fathers to today, this has been a core belief of Christianity throughout its history. But in modern times, this idea is being repudiated as “Cosmic Child Abuse.” On today’s show, we are going to address these questions: • What is the historic belief of the Christian church on atonement? • Why does God have wrath and how can that be a good thing? • Is penal substitutionary atonement a late invention of medieval Christians? • If God required the sacrifice of his Son, doesn’t that make him a Divine child abuser? • If I can just forgive people without a sacrifice, why can’t God?
