In this one, the home team congratulate Graham in his new role as Bishop of Kensington and discuss the role of a Bishop. They also talk about original sin.

Mike, Jane and Graham talk about why the New Testament writings are considered to be God’s Word and other early Christian writings of this time are not. They also discuss whether God forgives our sins against him or just against other people, and whether our imperfect memories are a result of our fallenness.

In this one, Graham Mike and Jane have fancy new microphones (so a better audio experience for all). They talk about the Prosperity Gospel, whether the fall is an event or a process, and whether the Holy Spirit is a person, a force or a thing.

God encompasses the vastness of the universe, but chooses to relate to humanity in a personal way, on this apparently trivial little planet. What is the place of humanity in the purposes of God? And if there is life on other planets, is Jesus’ incarnation, death, and resurrection valid for the whole cosmos? Secondly, what does Jesus mean when he says in Luke 10:18 that he “saw Satan fall like lightening from heaven,” and how do we interpret biblical language about the spiritual realm? And finally, should we, as individuals and as communities, respond to aggression by “turning the other cheek”?
