Are you creative and imaginative and wonder how it has to do with the Bible? Do you know what apologetics is and why it’s important?
I talk to Heidi Mortenson on Strong Tower Mental Health Podcast about my personal testimony as a believer in Jesus Christ, the importance of understanding apologetics as well as my journey into being a professional writer and filmmaker.
You will be pulled into a deeper part of Christianity than you ever have before using your heart, mind and will.
We can know God with our head, but when we use both the right and left side of our brain, our faith grows more than we could ever imagine.
I was on this new podcast with Nikola called Myths, Mysteries and Majesties.
We talk about my story as well as What is actually a myth? What is the role of imagination? What’s the ontological reality of other gods? Was polemics used as an apologetic tool in the Bible? How did the ancients see the universe being structured?
I was on another great Iron and Myth Podcast about Christmas, but more than that, about astral prophecy.
Author and pastor Doug Van Dorn, bestselling author and award-winning screenwriter Brian Godawa, and Director of the Institute of Biblical Anthropology Dr. Judd Burton discuss the signs in the heavens that pointed to the birth of Jesus, the ways in which the powers and principalities—the gods of the pagan world—have tried to appropriate what was, in actual, historical fact, a Christian celebration from the beginning, and why—biblically—it doesn’t matter.
I was on the Iron and Myth podcast again. This one is going to fascinate you.
IS CHAOS a symbol of disorder, or is it, as certain passages in the Bible suggest, an entity?
Back this month for another in our Iron and Myth series are Brian Godawa (www.godawa.com), author of Leviathan and Behemoth, Pastor Doug Van Dorn (www.douglasvandorn.com), author of Giants: Sons of the Gods, and Dr. Judd Burton (www.burtonbeyond.com), author of Interview with the Giant: Ethnohistorical Notes on the Nephilim.
We discuss the various ways chaos is described in the Bible (Leviathan, Rahab, a multi-headed sea dragon, and the sea itself), the apparent struggle to subdue chaos in scripture and in pagan cultures of the ancient world, and the disturbing connection between chaos and the modern UFO phenomenon.
Did you know that the Bible treats pagan gods as if they are real demonic entities? Well it does. And god uses language that expresses his subversion of those false gods. Watch the video to find out how he does it with poetic imagination.
This is a video I made to help explain to Christians the power of myth in storytelling that they often miss out on because of their fear of that word, “myth” as meaning a false tale. It does not. CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien understood this. So should we. Or we miss out on all God has for us with our imagination. Watch the video to find out.
