Backpack Radio Listener Feedback

Some of the feedback we've received so far for BACKPACK RADIO...

What is an Anglican? [10/09/11]
Sharon McNutt 2:48 pm October 11, 2011

First-time listener — loved it! All of you with your interjections
regarding faith, traditions, historical and evangelical sense…love the
hip-hop style that keeps the intellectual fun! Thanks for keeping this
sexagenarian interested and feeling young — and keep loving Jesus.

What about Adam & Eve? [10/02/11]
Thanks Vocab! By the way, I loved this weeks podcast. For whatever
reason I had not reconciled the implications of evolution on
redemptive theology, how coming from some 10,000 original ancestors would contradict the teaching of Paul and Christ's sacrifice would be irrelevant. I had
always felt like the major objection to evolution, theistic or not was
just that it contradicted the teaching of scripture, thereby calling
the whole of the canon into question. Well done man!

Witnessing to Muslims [09/18/11]
Joel T 5:01 pm September 21, 2011

Hey BPR crew –
I enjoyed the show, and gained a general idea of how Muslims would
approach proselytizing Christians, and some general ways to refute
those, but it would be helpful for me if you did a “Muslims in your
living room” style show…kind of point/counterpoint…to provide Biblical
responses to their most common objections.
Thanks, jt

An LDS Apologist Critiques Backpack Radio [07/17/2011]

I have really enjoyed having McKay on the last two weeks. He is so
helpful and generious to hash out the issues. I have really like how
laid back he is and he knows the information and how to have a well
laid out discussion.

Mormon Missionaries in My Living Room [06/26/2011]
Joel Laing 10:31 am July 1, 2011

I really liked this show, but (emphatically spoken, as John Mark is
prone to do)– it was really hard for me to understand the sound bytes
from the Mormon missionaries. I guess there wasn’t a smooth transition
from 9-Track to cassette, huh? Do you think you could reiterate what
they said in their clips next time. I felt a bit frustrated because I
would hear everyone’s reactions to what had been said, but couldn’t
quite understand the message. Other than that minor flaw, I am beyond
impressed with the quality of this and other BPR shows and consider
myself a fan. Thank you so much for your using your time and talent to
educate the rest of us on the truth. Praise God for the three of you
and the ability He has given the three of you to teach.

I have some extended family members who are Mormons and have had some interesting conversations about doctrine, history, the quad and Bible, definitions, who Jesus is, and what Salvation and Grace mean. I think that it is incredible that they do these 2 years stints!

One thing that's interesting when it comes to talking with Mormons is the nature of faith. I have brought up points about how the archeological evidence completely against the claims they make about the history of the American Israelites, and their answer was that one had to take this claim on faith.

Great broadcast y'all....When thinking about the "P", I'm reminded that those who will persevere are those who have truly repented. Questions about "how we are dealing wit or sin" should be regular conversations amongst believers not only to counsel one another in the gospel, but also to affirm each other as legit believers.

i strongly believe the urban artist and the urban church have a unique place - to bring truth to the face of culture and involve culture in truth-speaking, to sit alongside culture, unafraid of it, but willing to talk about the raw, painful, even destructive forces at work in the everyday life on the street* I believe that those in touch with their own pain/story can do this, but it comes more naturally to those in urban settings*

First of all, excellent podcast, I learned a lot and really loved it. I wanted to touch on the belief that Muslims have about the crucifixion of Jesus. In my world religion class in college I asked a Muslim about their perception of this. Its not that Muslims are going against historical evidence, but that they believe that it wasn’t Jesus who died on the cross. They say that God, in order to protect Jesus from dieing such a death disguised Judas Iscariot or maybe another nameless Jew as Jesus and he is the one who died. There is no way to prove whether or not this happened, so I think that this argument wont help when evangelizing to a Muslim.

One point that a lot of Christians use that I believe is pretty solid is the Satanic verses in the Koran. This is where Satan whispers in Mohammed's ear a verse that causes the people to believe that there is more than one God. Then the angle Gabriel comes to him and tells him of his mistake and he corrects it. In Deuteronomy 18:20 which the Muslims have accepted as the written word of god it says “But the prophet who speaks a word presumptuously in My name which I have not commanded him to speak, or which he speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet shall die.”

Muslims will then try to say that you did not read the rest of it. In context with the Koran it says that God corrected him and that there wasn’t one prophet that didn’t make such a mistake. The key here is that it doesn’t matter what the rest of the verse says in the Koran, God says ” But the prophet who speaks A WORD which I have not commanded him to speak, or which he speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet shall die.” The key is “a word” and Mohammed spoke several.

I know, kind of long and drawn out for a reply, but I feel this is a good tool for evangelism.
