Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Question 15: Amputation?

Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Question 12: Egyptian Magic, What's Up with That?
Moses' staff turned into a snake, then the Egyptians' staff did the same thing. Moses turns water into blood, and so do the Egyptians. If God is for us, who's against us? Could the answer be different than we think?
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Question 11: Why Doesn't God Use Pterodactyls in His Metaphor?
