Episodes

  • The Challenge of an Increasingly Secular Culture

    Aug 09 2020

    Spending a day at the ocean can be a wonderful experience, but it can also be dangerous. Sometimes the undercurrents can be deceptive, and the waves punishing. As a result, parents must warn their kids about these dangers, and watch them closely as they head into the water. According to Brett Kunkle, co-author of A Practical Guide to Culture, this is a great analogy for how we should raise our kids in today’s secular culture. We need to both protect and prepare the next generation to navigate al...more

  • Zeal Without Knowledge

    Aug 05 2020

    What is the proper biblical relationship between zeal and knowledge? Which is more important? In this edition of the White Horse Inn, the hosts examine the opening verses of Romans 10 and discuss Paul's concern about pursuing zeal without knowledge in their continuing series through the Romans Revolution (originally aired 09-03-06).

  • John Lennox on the Threat of A.I.

    Aug 02 2020

    Artificial Intelligence is already changing the world as we know it, but how will it change the future? Is it possible that humans will one day be able to create a thinking machine that has a will of its own? And if so, will this machine become a kind of super-intellect that ends up controlling all of our actions? What does it mean to be a conscious living being in the first place? Shane Rosenthal discusses these and other questions with Oxford mathematician, John Lennox, author of 2084: Artific...more

  • What About Free Will?

    Jul 29 2020

    Is there such a thing as free will? Does God look down the corridors of time and choose those people he sees will eventually choose to follow him? How are we to understand grace, foreknowledge, election and predestination? These important questions will be addressed in our continued study of Romans 9 (originally aired 08-27-06).

  • Near-Death Experiences

    Jul 26 2020

    Every year it seems a new book or movie is released that recounts an individual’s brief tour of heaven. Are there any common threads that emerge when evaluating the history of these kinds of reports? What should we believe about the afterlife, and how do stories like these compare with what we find Scripture? On this program, Shane Rosenthal talks again with St. Louis University professor Michael McClymond about how the reporting of near-death experiences has shaped, and continues to shape, cont...more

  • In Memoriam: An Interview with J.I. Packer

    Jul 22 2020

    On this special edition of the White Horse Inn we’re honoring the life and legacy of J.I. Packer by featuring a previously unaired interview that Shane Rosenthal recorded with him on the state of contemporary Christianity.

  • The Untold Story of Purgatory

    Jul 19 2020

    For centuries Protestants have rejected the doctrine of purgatory, claiming that it’s taught nowhere in Scripture and that it actually undermines crucial doctrines related to Christ’s all-sufficient sacrifice. Because he suffered in our place and died for our sins “once for all” (Heb. 10:10), Christians have no need of any additional purging or purification. So how and when did the doctrine of purgatory develop, and what sort of changes is this doctrine currently undergoing in the world of Catho...more

  • The Remnant

    Jul 15 2020

    Why did so many of the Jews reject Christ and his sacrificial death if he was Israel's true messiah? Did God's plan fail? The answer to this dilemma, according to Paul, lies in the doctrine of election. In this edition of the White Horse Inn, the hosts discuss Romans 9, as they continue the Romans Revolution (originally aired 08-20-06).

  • Is Jesus History?

    Jul 12 2020

    Unlike most religions, Christianity gambles its plausibility on certain datable events. Jesus not only died for our sins but he “suffered under Pontius Pilate.” Most of our churches, however, end up focusing on the practical and therapeutic aspects of faith, and rarely, if ever, address questions related to “the Jesus of history.” So how can we be sure that Jesus ever really existed in the first place, or whether the Gospels can be trusted as authentic eyewitness reports? Shane Rosenthal discuss...more

  • More Than Conquerors

    Jul 08 2020

    God's love is clearly revealed to us in the death of his Son. But if God loves us, why do we still suffer? In this program, the hosts deal with the second half of Romans 8 and discuss the meaning of sharing in Christ's suffering (originally aired 08-13-06).

  • Post-Christian

    Jul 05 2020

    Today’s post-Christian culture is running into dead ends and fatal contradictions. For example, many people today believe that gender is a matter of subjective preference rather than objective biological considerations. But can we apply this idea to a person’s age? Can a man identify as a 15-year-old boy when he’s really 50? Shane Rosenthal recently asked people on the street what they thought about this and other related issues, and he discusses their answers with special guest, Gene Veith, aut...more

  • No Condemnation

    Jul 01 2020

    At the opening of Romans 8, Paul begins with his amazing announcement that there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ. But what are the implications of this revolutionary idea?

  • Abdu Murray on Life in a Post-Truth Culture

    Jun 28 2020

    According to Abdu Murray, “We don’t care about the truth if it gets in the way of our personal preferences.” In fact, he says, “if the evidence fits our preferences and opinions, then all is well and good. If it doesn’t, then the evidence is deemed inadmissible or offensive, with offense being a kind of solvent against otherwise sound arguments.” On this program, Shane Rosenthal continues his conversation with former Muslim Abdu Murray, author of Grand Central Question, Saving Truth, and Seeing ...more

  • An Unspiritual Apostle?

    Jun 24 2020

    How are we to understand Romans 7 when the Apostle Paul says, "I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin." Was he describing his present experience as a Christian or rather his life before he became a Christian?

  • Abdu Murray on Islam & Christian Apologetics

    Jun 21 2020

    As a proud Muslim, Abdu Murray enjoyed sparring with people of other faiths. But when he was eventually confronted with the evidence for Christ’s death and resurrection, he allowed that truth to be eclipsed by the losses he might suffer as a result of his conversion. After years of indecision, he eventually concluded that the Christian gospel was worth dying for. Abdu Murray now serves as the Senior Vice President of RZIM and is the author of Grand Central Question, Saving Truth, and most recent...more

  • Justification & The Christian Life

    Jun 17 2020

  • Why I Left Islam: The Story of Fikret Bocek

    Jun 14 2020

    Fikret Bocek converted to Christianity from a Muslim background, and he now serves as the pastor of a Protestant church in Izmir, Turkey. On this episode, we’ll be talking with him about why he left Islam, as well as some of the interesting experiences he’s had over the past decade preaching the gospel in a predominantly Muslim context. Fikret and his wife were also recently hospitalized after testing positive for the coronavirus, and we’ll be talking to him about those experiences as well. For ...more

  • Shall We Then Sin?

    Jun 10 2020

    If grace covers sin, then why not continue to live in sin and enjoy it? This is the argument Paul addresses in Romans 6.

  • Greed, Heresy, & the Prosperity Gospel

    Jun 07 2020

    In his second letter, Peter warns believers that “there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies. Because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed, and in their greed they will exploit you.” According to Costi Hinn, author of God, Greed and the (Prosperity) Gospel, and nephew of televangelist Benny Hinn, this is a good description of what’s currently going on inside the world of the prosperity gospel. Mike Horton and Adriel Sanchez talk with Costi abo...more

  • A Tale of Two Mediators

    Jun 03 2020

    Are we considered guilty for Adam's sin? What is the doctrine of original sin?

  • I Know That My Redeemer Lives

    May 31 2020

    On this program, the hosts conclude their three-part series through the book of Job by examining that great profession of faith in which Job says, “I know that my redeemer lives” (19:25). How does this hope in the future redeeming work of the Messiah comfort Job in the midst of his distress? How can the recovery of this Christ-centered focus help us when we suffer? The hosts consider these questions and more on this edition of White Horse Inn (originally aired 03-16-20).

  • Job’s Counselors & the Prosperity Gospel

    May 24 2020

    Continuing their overview of the book of Job, the hosts discuss the various claims made by Job’s counselors concerning health, wealth, and happiness. What’s wrong with their advice, and how should this influence the way we think about the role of suffering in the Christian life? How do we deal with the fact that there is so much pain and misery in the world, and what happens to our faith when having “our best life now” seems to elude us at every turn? (originally aired 03-09-14) To receive our f...more

  • Peace With God

    May 20 2020

    Paul writes in Romans chapter 5 that "since we've been justified by faith, we now have peace with God." But what does it mean to have "peace with God?" Is it simply an experience or a feeling?

  • Understanding the Book of Job

    May 17 2020

    On this program the hosts are beginning a three-part series exploring the book of Job. What is the meaning and purpose of this book? What does it teach us about dealing with pain, suffering, and loss? How does Job deal with his many trials, and how should we think about the advice he gets from his various friends?

  • John Lennox on God & the Coronavirus Pandemic

    May 10 2020

    How are we to make sense of the coronavirus pandemic that has dramatically changed our world? Where is God in all this, and why would he allow this to happen? On this program, Shane Rosenthal talks with Oxford mathematician John Lennox about the way people from a variety of world-views have attempted to deal with the problem of pain, and why Christianity offers the best solution.

  • How Important is Doctrine?

    May 06 2020

  • Your Worst Life Now

    May 03 2020

    Many Christians around the world have bought into the assumptions of the prosperity gospel. With Jesus’s help, they have argued, we can all have our best life now. But does this message make any sense in light of the coronavirus pandemic? What happens when a loved one gets sick? What are we to think when we ourselves end up in the hospital or find ourselves out of a job? On this edition of White Horse Inn, Shane Rosenthal discusses these questions and more with Michael Horton. To ask any apologe...more

  • What Is Biblical Theology?

    Apr 26 2020

    Though Bible readers may be familiar with all the individual stories recorded throughout Scripture, it seems that few are taught how all those stories fit together. What is the grand unifying theme of the Bible, and how do all the individual chapters and episodes point to a single coherent storyline that culminates in the person and work of Jesus Christ? On this program Michael Horton and Adriel Sanchez discuss these issues with Nancy Guthrie, author of Even Better Than Eden: Nine Ways the Bible...more
