Billy Graham has passed on to glory and BBC Radio Scotland chose to cover this news in a rather surprising and interesting way that revealed one of the key issues that plagues the church in Scotland as a whole.  If we have different gospels, do we not have different religions?  David Robertson and Al Smith are joined in the studio by Nick Franks of Counterfeit Vlog to talk about Good Morning Scotland’s coverage of the news of the death of Billy Graham.

How Would You Answer?

A new study revealed that GEN Z represents the fastest growing segment of atheists in our country.  This offers both a challenge and an opportunity to the Church.  How would you answer the questions of those who think that Christianity has been found wanting?
