In this rebroadcasted pair of interviews from Stand to Reason’s #STRask Podcast, J. Warner Wallace is on a timer and answers questions about free will, consistent pro-life views, Jesus dying for sin, the Black Lives Matter movement and the truth value of Christianity: If the ability to do otherwise is a requirement of love, then given our new natures, how will we love the Lord in the new earth? How would you reply to this: If pro-lifers were sincere about when life begins, wouldn’t they have funerals for miscarriages? Why did Jesus have to die for us? What is a Christian response to the Black Lives Matter movement? How would it affect your life if you suddenly recognized that Christianity is just another false man-made religion?

In this blast from the past, J. Warner examines the historicity and nature of Jesus Christ. Before we can even look at who Jesus claimed to "be", we need to make sure He existed in the first place. Critics claim that Jesus is simply a re-telling of the Mithras mythology, copying Mithras' virgin birth, death and resurrection and many other similar details. But is Jesus truly similar to Mithras? Are there good reasons to expect ancient seekers to create a God that is similar to the true God of the universe?

In this episode of the Cold-Case Christianity Broadcast, J. Warner continues to discuss the practices and principles of good investigators and applies these techniques to the Christian worldview. When juries are asked to evaluate a case, they are instructed in the rules of evidence. In this episode, J. Warner discusses three important evidence instructions: 1. Possibilities are irrelevant, 2. The more cumulative the case, the more reasonable the conclusion, and 3. Witnesses are reliable unless demonstrated otherwise. J. Warner demonstrates how a proper understanding of these rules can help you prepare people to hear the case for Christianity. This approach is described in more detail in Forensic Faith: A Homicide Detective Makes the Case for a More Reasonable, Evidential Christian Faith.

When juries are asked to evaluate a case, they are instructed in the rules of evidence. In this episode, J. Warner discusses three important evidence instructions: 1.

Warner demonstrates how a proper understanding of these rules can help you prepare people to hear the case for Christianity.
