Welcome to Still Unbelievable!, where we examine Christianity. Sometimes we will discuss an episode of the Unbelievable? podcast, sometimes we will test how well Christian arguments stand up because, as sceptics, we think that all beliefs should be challenged.


Episode 66 - Abortion and the Texas heartbeat bill

In this short episode, Matthew addresses comments made in a recent episode of Unbelievable? where two Christians discussed abortion. The show was a good example of two people disagreeing (mostly) with grace, but several comments made by the anti abortion participant needed addressing.
