Episode 148: Adding to the Conversation – Marijuana, Science and Creationism


Ephesians 6:6

On this week’s episode, we listen to a conversation between Dr. Mark Ward, Dr. John Neufeld, and Ben Lowell. They continue the dialogue on the issue of marijuana legalization and touch on purpose and motivations. The three also look at the conflicts between recreational and medicinal usage, whether practical or not. The second half of the conversation digs into the existence of God and the realities of science in today’s culture. Towards the end, the topic of creationism also enters the conversation and they discuss the areas that we cannot compromise on as Christians, the areas where there’s room for disagreement, and the fact that the truth cannot be suppressed.
