How the Rules of Evidence Can Ready Evangelism – Part 2 (Cold Case Christianity Broadcast #101)

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

In this episode of the Cold-Case Christianity Broadcast, J. Warner continues to discuss the practices and principles of good investigators and applies these techniques to the Christian worldview. When juries are asked to evaluate a case, they are instructed in the rules of evidence. In this episode, J. Warner discusses three important evidence instructions: 1. Possibilities are irrelevant, 2. The more cumulative the case, the more reasonable the conclusion, and 3. Witnesses are reliable unless demonstrated otherwise. J. Warner demonstrates how a proper understanding of these rules can help you prepare people to hear the case for Christianity. This approach is described in more detail in Forensic Faith: A Homicide Detective Makes the Case for a More Reasonable, Evidential Christian Faith. Be sure to check out Forensic Faith and the accompanying curriculum.
