Theology on Air is a weekly radio show/podcast that explores the truth claims of Christianity, often through the eyes of non-Christians. Agnostics, atheists, skeptics, and people of other faiths discuss and debate the issues of the day and the timeless questions of the past. We'll dig deep into philosophy, science, the Bible, and current events, but we promise to do so with charity, grace, and a bit of humor. Theology on Air is brought to you by the leadership of Theology on Tap, Houston and ...

Dr. Jordan Cooper of Just and Sinner joins us to a look at Lutheran distinctives. While this was recorded for another project I (Evan) am working on, we thought the TOA audience would also find it interesting. While, of course, many of our listeners are not Lutheran, you can think about your own tradition's teachings on issues like the sacraments, …
 
Sarah and Andrew respond to a Richard Rohr video that discusses contemplative prayer. What does Rohr mean when he uses that phrase? Is this a practice that Christians should explore? Or is something like the Lord's Prayer sufficient?
 
How should you talk to someone who is grieving? What are the right and wrong things to say to someone who has just gone through trauama? Does our worldview help us to respond to sad people or does it make us more annoying? Sarah and her sister Laura take on that topic on today's Theology on Air.

People use the phrase "racial reconciliation" all the time. But what does it mean? How does the gospel affect what we think about race?

What does our theology tell us about how God views people…

Speaking in tongues, miracles, healing, people being slain in the spirit. Is any of that for real? Is some of it real, and some of it just people getting caught up in emotion? What is the role of the Holy Spirit in the church and in our lives? That mysterious 3rd person of the Trinity that doesn’t seem to get talked about as much… What are the “gif…
 
Leviticus is an oft-skipped book of the Bible that details a sacrificial system that has been fulfilled with the death and resurrection of Christ.

On this episode, we talk to Clay Cassasa, who grew up in a strict community whose ideas were somewhat popularized by the Duggar family.

Pastor Bob Garment joins us to look at some of the weirdest Bible passages. We look at the question of incest in Genesis, why God would command circumcision, who the Nephilim were, why a prophet would call down a curse on a gang of boys, and whether there are zombies in the New Testament. Whew!

Should cities in Harris County become sanctuary cities for the unborn? Do cities have the legal right or even the moral right to restrict access to abortion and abortifacient drugs? Or do we live in a free country and that means that women should have access to abortions whenever and wherever they are desired? We talk about that and much more on to…
 
Have you ever noticed that the Bible seems to change in Chapter 12 of Genesis? Gone are the grand, sweeping stories of creation, fall, flood, and destruction.

Does the soul exist? Oh, wait, scratch that. We’ve already had that debate and that interview. We actually have a more nuanced question to ask to two Christian philosophers today: what KIND of soul do we have? Are we souls or are we souls and bodies? When do we get a soul? Does its existence rely on our physical bodies, and what does that say about…
 
Some of the most debated - and yet, most important - stories in the entire Bible are in the first few chapters….right there in Genesis. Are these stories true? Myth? Something in between? And how do they set the stage for the rest of the Bible? We talk about that and much more with Clay Brown from Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church on today’s Theol…

More and more teenagers and young adults are walking away from the faith. Why? Has the Church become irrelevant? When people reconsider what they really believe, what is it that makes some people stay on Team Jesus, and many others walk away from Christianity? Is it about what is actually true, or does it have more to do with how you feel and explo…
 
Do humans have a soul? Or is that just an outdated, sentimental way of understanding personality and memories? If the soul is something different from just an emergent property of the mind, where did it come from? And why does it matter? Can you be an atheist and believe in the soul or a Christian and not believe in the soul? We talk about that and…
 
What is Christian Mysticism? What should believers think about the teachings of, say, Richard Rohr? Is the enneagram a useful tool for discipleship?

Houston TOT hosts an online Ask Us Anything forum every other week. This week, we met via Zoom/Facebook live to tackle questions around social justice, abortion, homophobia, and getting along in spite of important differences. Check it out!
 
What exactly are the teachings of the enneagram? Do its questionable origins matter when using it for spiritual discipleship today? Is it just a "new" New Age tool? What are the "true self", the "false self" and the "universal Christ" and how do these principles align or depart from the Bible's teachings? Is there a place for Christian Mysticism in…

What is progressive theology? Is it another Gospel? Is it a necessary corrective to old-fashioned, traditional Christianity that has said the same thing after all these years? Is what is new bad and what is old good? Or is it just the opposite? We talk about the shortcomings of traditional theology and the benefits of progressive theology with Past…
 
What is "progressive" Christianity? How is it that, as progressive theology finds its way into the Church more and more, that some find it exciting and freeing and some view it as dangerous or another Gospel? With some struggling with doubt and in the process of deconstructing and reconstructing their faith, how should we approach the search for tr…
 
How should we vote? Trump? Biden? Republican? Democrat? Third Party? Maybe just sit at home and cry? How should we approach the upcoming election? Should we take our faith to the polls?

What are those things that Christianity - or Christians - are NOT? What are those things that are often confused for the essentials of the faith but are actually of secondary importance? How do heaven, politics, and being a good person become more important than following Jesus now and with the proper balance? We talk about eight things Christianit…
 
Why would two Americans leave everything to share the Gospel somewhere else? How does sharing the Gospel look different in a Hindu context?

Did the Israelite exodus from Egypt really happen? Were the biblical characters Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Aaron, and certain pharaohs real men of history, or just part of a narrative Christians assume?
