How effective are arguments? It’s a question often raised towards the effectiveness of apologetics. But the question also touches upon the much important domain of enquiry: how do I know for sure God exists? Enter the self-authenticating witness of the Holy Spirit. In this one-off episode the SAFT Podcast duo makes a short, fun and casual return to…
 
Science is king above all! That’s the notion prevalent across the atheistic spectrum. It’s also one that’s gaining traction among the laypeople. The reasoning is that since we can do physical tests and understand the natural tangible world and that since scientific discoveries better our life it must therefore be the greatest discipline – the pathw…
 
How complex is our body? Highly, highly complex, even down to the cellular level! What seems to be the best explanation of this complexity? Evolutionary theories (theories that are purely natural withholding the possibility of supernatural intervention) and Intelligent Design theories (theories that allow for supernatural intervention) are at odds …

Isn’t abortion a right of the women? If the purpose of life is to know God then isn’t euthanasia pursuable for someone who is brain dead? Why is God concerned with what consenting adults do in the bedroom? If no person is born sans-God’s intention, then what is gender dysphoria? Have we bifurcated the ‘person’ from the ‘body’ too much? Where do we …
 
Am I just my brain? How can we say we have an immaterial mind when we can control our actions and thoughts by stimulating our brain! Hasn’t science definitively shown that our brain is all there is? Maybe our brain is identical to our mind! Cambridge trained brain imaging scientist Dr. Sharon Dirckx (OCCA The Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics…
 
What has the fascinating field of archaeology contributed to the Christian worldview? What are some of the most intriguing discoveries to date?

Are Christians the personal objection to non-believers embracing the faith? What damage is brought about by superficial assessments passed by Christians? In our churches do we have a trend of passive Christians who pass the ball of evangelism to pastors and leaders? How do we overcome and offset the bad taste people have towards Christianity becaus…

What was the initial name of the conference? How did we bring on the top speakers and worship b…
 
The question of the historical reliability of the Gospels is still very much alive. Hundreds of articles and videos that present robust defense, having stood the test of time, fill search results. But what about the underlying principles at play? Why are still objections raised? How has scholarship fared in responding to these? Why are critics read…
 
What role can mothers play in the growth of their child’s faith foundation? Do they have specific advantage over the roles played by pastors and youth leaders?

Veganism and Global Warming are hot topics (pun intended) now more than ever thanks to rising activism and political influence. So how does a Christian respond to it? Are we merciless and selfish because we eat meat? Are we ruthless towards our planet if we don’t engage in activism for global warming? Should a Christian who awaits the return of Chr…
 
Progressive Christianity. The wolf in sheep’s clothing. The yeast of modern day heresy permeating the churches under the guise of a tolerant and welcoming Christianity. Alisa Childers, our first women guest on the podcast, who firsthand encountered Progressive Christianity recently authored Another Gospel? and brings to clear light the nuanced and …
 
What if we consider Jesus to be just what many claim He is- a fictional character! What if we consider the biographies of His life, called the Gospels, as just mere fiction? Where does that lead us? Tom Gilson does exactly this in his latest book ‘Too Good To Be False’ which has taken the arena by storm. Tom goes on to show comprehensively that eve…
 
Global Youth Culture. Sounds pretty hefty. But what is it? Is it truly global? How influential is it? What are the things that make this culture distinct and identifiable? And most importantly, why does this matter to me! Well if you are a youth or someone who ministers among the youth this is relevant to you big time. Lukas Rueegger who has been m…
 
Deuteronomy 18 is often highly contested as God proclaims the arrival of prophet like Moses. Is God talking about one prophet? Is He talking about a line of prophets? And most importantly, has anyone ever fulfilled such a profound proclamation? Is there any Biblical backing to the claim that Muhammad is a prophet like Moses? Finally, where does Jes…
 
We had addressed earlier with Dr Clay Jones on the podcast the question of why does God allow evil and suffering. But today we look at the problem of evil at a different angle narrowing in on the practical applicability and response it can elicit. Tune in as Piyush and Jacob dialogue why asking can God stop evil is critical too. Links and Citation:…

The most important book out there that concerns a Christian is hands down the Bible. But how should we read a book so vibrant and complex? Can a common person hope to understand such a book? Isn’t it best that we listen to or read the sermons of great preachers? Does the current lockdown beckon us to reconsider how we approach Scripture and the pla…
 
In our previous podcast we looked into John the Baptist. In this episode we will dive in to the caveats that apologists have to address to engage in apologetics as God has called us to.

John the Baptist is one of the most well-known New Testament figures thanks to the powerful quote of his seeking more of Christ and less of oneself. But John the Baptist has a peculiar journey throughout his ministry. We see him backslide quite massively. What was all about Jesus’ review of John? What caused him to doubt the Lamb of God he introduc…
 
Islam is a dominant global worldview, second only to Christianity. We encounter Muslim friends and colleagues across all walks of life and many of our Muslim friends know quite a lot about the essentials of Christianity. Muslims claim to honour Isa, who they say is Jesus, for who he truly is, a prophet of Allah. They claim that he made a bird out o…
 
Islam is a dominant global worldview, second only to Christianity. We encounter Muslim friends and colleagues across all walks of life and many of our Muslim friends know quite a lot about the essentials of Christianity. A common challenge flung at Christianity is the seeming inconsistencies in the Bible or supposedly major and cataclysmic interpol…
 
Islam is a dominant global worldview, second only to Christianity. We encounter Muslim friends and colleagues across all walks of life and many of our Muslim friends know quite a lot about the essentials of Christianity. Also given that many Christians and Muslims alike, not to mention the unassuming gallery, think Christianity and Islam to be the …
 
Miracles are violations of the laws of nature. The laws of nature cannot be violated. Therefore miracles are impossible. Wait… what? That’s David Hume going around in circles. Sometimes we too do so. The Bible is the word of God because it says so. See? Both statements beg the question or go around in circles. They assume the conclusion to be the p…

What if someone corners you about your faith? What if they raise a challenge towards Christianity in which you have little/no idea? How you do navigate the conversation and advance your Christian conviction? Or better still, how do you remain in the driver’s seat during the conversation? Greg Koukl, founder of Stand To Reason, addressed all this an…

How should we reach out to this generation, often titled the ‘Gen Z’? How effectively can parents, Sunday school teachers, youth pastors and youth leaders galvanize them for Christ? Join us as Jacob sits down the fabulous Sean McDowell as he unpacks it all and more through his latest co-authored book ‘So The Next Generation Will Know’. This is a mu…
 
The question of how a sovereign God preordained the world has been buzz for centuries. John Calvin opined that we do not have free will. Yet this flies in the face of blatant reality and paints God as a puppeteer who judges humans for that which we didn’t in fact do. What did Luis de Molina present as a sound theological escape hatch from this conu…

With John Loftus releasing the book ‘The Case Against Miracles’, Michael Shermer and Bart Ehrman building the boost for its spread, this podcast is well placed to shed timely knowledge. Isn’t believing in miracles for the gullible and ignorant? How can miracles even take place when we say that miracles overpower the laws of nature? Don’t Christians…
 
To claim someone has risen from the dead is staggering. To claim a historically verified person has risen bodily from the dead, with the falsifiability of the claim intact, and to place one’s entire trust on that claim beggars belief! It all sounds too good to be true. Maybe the entire ‘resurrection of Jesus tale’ was nothing but a well-orchestrate…
 
The Jewish people had their prophets and prophecies. They had their Pharisees and scholars. They were awaiting the Messiah to come. Yet they missed out on His arrival! Why did that happen? Did the Jewish view of prophecy change by the time of Christ? Did their interpretation of prophecies get in the way? If the Jewish people didn’t receive their Me…
 
Atheists and materialists often try and deride theism and Christianity by touting that unlike the latter set of worldview, atheists are free to go whichever way the evidence points. They claim that they have no appriori commitment. But is that truly the case? Are atheists and materialists (by extension) truly free thinkers who accept the truth with…
 
In the previous episodes we've been discussing whether morality is objective or subjective. In this podcast, we'll be presenting arguments as to why we understand morality to be objective and hence binding on all mankind, deeming everyone accountable to the transcendent moral code. Ergo, both Hitler and Veerappan are accountable. Background music c…
