Ep. 250: Carl Lentz, Hillsong, John Ankerberg, and the Latest on the Shooting in Nashville

On today’s program, controversial pastor, Carl Lentz, is back in the pulpit two years after the scandal that forced him out of Hillsong.

Popular Christian apologist John Ankerberg is facing accusations by a whistleblower that he took money that donors thought was going to pay for audio Bibles and used that money for other purposes.

We begin today with the story that has horrified the entire nation this week.  The story of a shooting at a Christian school in Nashville. A community is reeling after a shooter killed three children and three staff members at a small Christian school in Nashville, Tennessee, on Monday.
