Deeper Waters Podcast 1/18/2019

What’s coming up? Let’s plunge into the Deeper Waters and find out.

We live in a strange world. In this world, an actress can stand on a stage holding a golden statue and talk about how she was only able to get to where she is because she had an abortion. The response from the audience of Hollywood celebrities, who don’t know anything about the real world, is applause.

We also live in an age where we say we want to talk about equality so much. Distinctions that we have are being blurred. Gender is seen as a social construct. Being a man or being a woman doesn’t really mean anything. Marriage is no longer seen as between a man and a woman but just between two people who love each other.

We live in an age that says it praises science. Unless you can show something to be true scientifically, there is no reason to believe it. It is philosophy that must take the back seat if we give it any seat at all. All truth must be amenable to the scientific method.

Yet here we have a world where abortion is a constant problem. Safe, legal, and rare goes out the window when a woman is applauded for getting an abortion so she could have an acting career. Not all of us are equal if what is in the womb is not seen as fully human. Science has spoken on the nature of what is in the womb, but then we suddenly go to philosophy at that point.

Enter into all of this my guest this weekend. He is the man behind the Equal Rights Institute. He has been a strong pro-life apologist since he was eighteen years old and has traveled the world giving this message. Saturday, he travels to the Deeper Waters Podcast. His name is Josh Brahm.

So who is he?

According to his bio:

Josh Brahm is the co-founder and president of Equal Rights Institute, a national pro-life organization dedicated to helping pro-life advocates think clearly, reason honestly, and argue persuasively. He has worked in the pro-life movement since he was 18. After 12 years of full-time pro-life work he launched Equal Rights Institute to maximize his impact for the movement.

A sought-after speaker, Josh has spoken for more than 23,000 people in five countries.

Josh’s primary passion is helping pro-life people to be more persuasive when they communicate with pro-choice people. That means ditching faulty rhetoric and tactics and embracing arguments that hold up under philosophical scrutiny.

Josh has been happily married to his wife, Hannah, for thirteen years. They have three sons, Noah, William and Eli. They live in Charlotte, North Carolina.

David Bereit, the National Director of 40 Days for Life, sums up Josh’s expertise this way: “Josh Brahm is one of the brightest, most articulate, and innovative people in the pro-life movement. His cutting-edge work is helping people think more clearly, communicate more effectively, and — most importantly — be better ambassadors for Christ. I wholeheartedly endorse Josh’s work, and I encourage you to join me in following Josh and getting involved in his work today!”

I hope you’ll be tuning in. We are rapidly updating our podcast page after the holiday and I hope to be caught up before too long. Thanks for listening in and please continue supporting the rights of the unborn.

In Christ,
