10/17/2008 - James SwanChris Arnzen hosts the daily radio show, Iron Sharpens Iron. Each day, Chris presents an hour long interview on topics that are important to Christians:
"How do you know your private interpretation of the Bible is correct over against the private interpretation of every other denomination?" "How can you be certain that you are in the truth since all you have to go on is your own fallible private judgment that your church is right?" "How do you know you've picked the right denomination?" "How can you believe in sola Scriptura, a principle that has resulted in over 25,000 Protestant denominations?" Sound familiar? If you've ever spent time dialoguing with a Roman Catholic apologist, chances are you've been confronted with these very questions. Eric Svendsen, director of New Testament Research Ministries, recently addressed these questions on Iron Sharpens Iron. The MP3 can be found here: UPON THIS SLIPPERY ROCK: Countering Roman Catholic Claims to Authority.
