Where Science and Faith Converge

Halloween and Other Hot Topics

By Kenneth R. Samples - October 30, 2012

Halloween. The September 11 attacks. Global warming.

Hot topics can present a troubling challenge, even in a culture that values freedom of speech. Do we ignore touchy issues and avoid all confrontation, or do we engage in verbal warfare with the opposition? Fortunately, there is a third option: presenting our opinions with gentleness, integrity, and respect for those with differing views.             

We at RTB do not shy away from addressing controversial subjects, but we always strive to maintain civil discourse with those who disagree with us. With Halloween on the horizon, I offer up this selection of hot topics from Reflections and other RTB venues.

The Christian faith itself is built on radical, controversial ideas, such as salvation by grace. I call this and other doctrines Christianity’s dangerous ideas. You can read about them in my latest book, 7 Truths That Changed the World.
