A Clear Lens is all about apologetics, Christianity, philosophy, and worldview with an eye on Luke 10:27 & 2 Corinthians 10:5

Sep 13, 2019

On this episode, Nate answered these questions:

- How should we respond when someone says, "You have faith in God but I have knowledge in science"?
- The Bible uses the soul and spirit interchangeably but does Hebrews 4:12 imply they are different?
- What is the ‘best’ argument against religion. I.e. the most difficult to explain away via logic?
- What about those who never hear the Gospel?
