Ep. 107: How to have Hope in a Cynical Age (with Dr. Jason Duesing)

Myriads of people live without or in denial of hope every day – including Christians. Christians may give lip service to their “hope” in Jesus and the gospel, but can easily reject that hope from entering their hearts. The issue is that we’re living in a cynical age. An age where negativity and excessive sarcasm abounds – resulting in a kind of stoicism. But, is there hope? Dr. Jason Duesing believes so. There’s a great hope to be found (or rediscovered) – a hope that’s worth losing everything for.

Ep. 085: A Christian Perspective on Mental Health

Do you struggle with a Christian perspective on mental health? In the last couple decades or so, the topic of mental health has become increasingly popular with more and more people talking about it.

Ep. 079: Christianity and Physical Health

Is your body a possession or a gift? Interesting question. We chat this week with Dr. Bob Cutillo, a Christian physician from Colorado, who’s recently written a book called Pursuing Health in An Anxious Age. We talk about the book and why he wrote it, and engage some specific issues involving our understanding of health. For one, in the current age when medical technology is highly advanced, why are more and more people anxious about their health? Shouldn’t we be less stressed? And why do many Christians leave their faith at the door when they walk into a clinic, doctor’s office, or hospital? Also, Dr. Cutillo draws from a famous character, Humpty Dumpty, to help illustrate where a lot of people are at when it comes to their bodies. Enjoy this friendly, interesting, and informative conversation about a topic that we, as Christians, don’t often think about.
