The Surprising Demise of Atheism
Published 5/17/2024 in Apologetics Canada
The Four Horsemen of the New Atheists: Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris, and Daniel Dennett, have faded from the cultural spotlight they once attracted. The New Atheists are now the Old Atheists. In fact, only two of the four are still alive. The questions they once raised still linger faintly but cultural conversations have shifted dramatically. Instead of asking, "Does God exist?" there are now an array of books and personalities asking and answering questions of sex, gender, and race, to name but a few. We have new questions and new influencers that now dominate the conversation in academia and households. Yet, as it turns out, the Old Atheists are not as irrelevant as one might think. On the AC podcast this week Andy, Steve, and Wes discuss how this current cultural moment is, in part, a product of their making and what we can learn from it moving forward. Join us on this week's AC Podcast as Troy, Steve, and Wes dive deep into the shift in perspective. Discover why this reimagining of Satan is spreading, and learn how it's moving from the shadows of the Church of Satan into mainstream media and pop culture. Whether you're a seasoned believer or simply curious about these cultural changes, this episode will surely challenge your thinking and spark meaningful conversation. read more ❯

When the Church Breaks Your Heart
Published 5/3/2024 in Apologetics Canada
If you've been a part of a church community for any length of time, you've likely experienced moments of hurt, disappointment, or even betrayal.

What would it take for us to go from, the Church breaking our hearts, to our hearts breaking for the Church? Join us on this week's episode as we explore the power of empathy, forgiveness, and restoration within the body of Christ. Listen as Troy, Andy and Steve discuss how we can transform our church experiences into a movement of healing and unity for the whole body of Christ.read more ❯
