Have you ever wanted to sit down with a top biblical scholar and ask them if there are errors in the Bible? We did. Kinda Christian features the top thinkers and leaders from all across the faith spectrum to wrestle through the tough questions of religion. At Kinda Christian the truth is what we are after. All views are welcome. All views are challenged. Kinda Christian digs into discrepancies in the gospels, the problem of suffering, eyewitnesses to medical miracles, and much more. Let's be honest, faith can be confusing. To some, the Bible appears to be a collection of myths, written down over thousands of years that offer the occasional moral nugget. To others it an absolute supernatural reality with thousands of testimonies of miracles and divine encounters. And making matters even more confusing, many groups disagree on some key doctrines. So how do we know the truth? We go out and find it. Join us as we sit down for some incredible conversations with some really smart people.

Miracles and Saints with Msgr. Robert Sarno
1:21:0308:51 – 13:26 The process for the Cause of Saints. 16:45 – 17:35 How the evidence is studied and vetted19:40 – 19:58 "Now it's very important to realize that a miracle has two elements; there's a scientific element and a theological element. The scientific element is that there is no human explanation for what happened, and so therefore you never ask the doctor: "is it a miracle?" you ask the doctor: "what is the diagnosis?"23:08 Why the process has to be so strict "The whole idea is to prove this in the external forum. In other words it has to be measurable, it has to be scientific, it has to be factual." 31:58" everyone is a Devils advocate, because nobody has the right to be canonized." (fr. Sarno)48:45 – 51:09 Why aren't more miracles widespread and well known?53:05 – 53:24 Ryan has his own miracle with Father Sarno58:15 – 01:00:45 Why are we seeing less miracles today?01:02:30 – 01:05:38 The doctrine of communion with Saints in the Catholic Church and explaining it to protestants. 01:13:40 – 01:14:23"Passing implies a passing of one life to another."
