As time progresses, it seems that the Christian church faces more and more obstacles in an increasingly secularized culture. How are the pastor and laity to respond to such challenges? On today’s edition of The Bellator Christi Podcast, we are joined by Dr. Mike Spaulding. Mike received his Ph.D. in Theology and Apologetics from Trinity Theological Seminary in Indiana. Mike also received his Master of Theological Studies from Logos Graduate School. Mike hosts the weekly, syndicated podcast called Soaring Eagle Radio (found at soaringeagleradio.com) and features his weekly messages on his weekly, syndicated show The Transforming Word (found at thetransformingword.com). Mike is also the pastor of Calvary Chapel of Lima, Ohio (cclohio.org). Join us today as we discuss the challenges facing the modern church as we enter into the arena of ideas.
