The Gospel According to Columbo

What if Lieutenant Columbo was a Christian? Instead of solving a crime, his task would be to present the Gospel. What would he say? How would he say it?

Why I Don’t Speak about Absolute Truth

I recently had the opportunity to speak to a group of youth at a homeschool conference. I am always impressed at the high level of questions I get from homeschoolers, and this event was no exception. After my talk titled “The Truth about Truth,” a young girl asked me why I didn’t use the term “absolute” when describing truth. How could I give a 45-minute talk on truth and not once use the word absolute?

Remembering Greg’s Mom (January 8, 2016) Transcription

Greg: Hello, my friends. So glad to have you on board today for our show. Stand to Reason is the name of the show. I'm your host Greg Koukl, with you every week for at least 2 hours of clear-thinking Christianity. There's another half-hour, actually, of another podcast called #STRask. We run it a little differently. We don't take live calls. You send your questions into #STRask. Then we use that, and The Enforcer and I do that show together. That's a bit different. It's been a lot of fun, though.

Christmas Vacation (January 6, 2016) Podcast Transcription

Greg: Well, hello friends. Welcome to the show. This first show of 2016, glad to have you on board. It seems a little bit odd right now. I just signed off some thank you notes to folks and I had to date it for the 2016 and that was just a little bit unusual. I'll get used to it and I am tempted in this first show of 2016 to wish you Happy New Year. I was there right there, ready to go.

Is Eternal Punishment Just?

After a recent keynote address at an ACSI teacher’s convention, a young middle school teacher challenged me on something I had said. In my talk on the problem of evil, I made an off-the-cuff remark about Hell being a place of eternal, conscious punishment. This young Christian schoolteacher took issue with the idea that a loving God would send a person to Hell for eternity for a finite number of sins committed while on earth. “It just doesn’t seem right,” she exclaimed.
