Paul Axton Preaches - Paul, in Ephesians, describes the Christian life as seeing everything differently, a seeing from the heart or waking up to the light. C. S. Lewis described his baptism as a baptism of the imagination and his Narnia tales illustrate what this waking up or conversion of the imagination entails.

Jason and Paul indicate how the philosophical arguments play into a failed psychology and point to the need for a fuller and more robust recognition of the Gospel as part of an apologetic. Our course Imaginative Apologetics will begin on October 19th.

Paul Axton Preaches - Deploying the three most famous apologies or trial defenses in history (the trial of Socrates, Jesus and Paul), the contrast between a defense grounded in this world order (law, reason, power) and one grounded in the Kingdom of God, is used to illustrate the apocalyptic (world disrupting) nature of a proper Christian apologetic.

Vangie, Jason, and Paul discuss the existential threat posed by surveillance capitalist companies such as Facebook and Google but to which we have long been subject in the age of mass media.

Paul Axton Preaches - The work of Christ, is one of the most contested aspects of Christianity.  Bad theories of the atonement have obscured the simplicity of the New Testament summed up by Romans 8:2, “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus made me free from the law of sin and of death” (Romans 8.2).

Derrida

In this lecture on Jacques Derrida, Paul Axton explains Derrida’s philosophical project of “deconstruction,” aimed at understanding how self-consciousness is divided or already conceived in difference, which is the root problem of violence. Derrida's development follows and aids Paul's conception of the law.
