Up For Debate
Up For Debate is a live, call-in Moody Radio program tackling important issues on which Christians disagree. Each week, guests holding divergent views join host Julie Roys for lively, yet respectful and biblically-based debate.
Many issues are not debatable within orthodox Christianity — the virgin birth, the veracity of the Scripture, the bodily resurrection of Christ. However, some issues are. For example: Can a Christian join the military and support a war? Should Christians advocate for environmental causes? Is it okay to use in-vitro fertilization? Up For Debate seeks to equip believers to discern these debatable matters by engaging biblically with people holding diverse opinions.
Up For Debate, a 54-minute program, airs every Saturday at 8 a.m. CT.
