Ross Clifford – Evidence for Faith

Can a lawyer who is trained to rely on evidence still believe in the God of the Bible? Is faith more about feelings than facts? That’s what I’m exploring on the latest episode of my podcast, Bleeding Daylight.

Rev. Dr. Ross Clifford AM is a former lawyer, a theologian, political commentator, pastor, radio personality, and so much more. He has authored or co-authored over a dozen books. In June, 2010, he was made a member of the Order of Australia.

Back when I was working in radio I used to chat with Ross each week about faith and spirituality. It was really good to be able to catch up with him again and go a bit deeper on whether the Christian faith could stand up in a court of law. Is there any trustworthy evidence to back up what Christians believe?

Is your pet in your will?

I wonder how many people are aware that William Wilberforce, the British politician who led the charge on the abolition of human slavery, was also led by his Christian convictions to help found the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

Just last week the Animal Law Committee of the New South Wales Young Lawyers launched a brochure titled What About Me? It’s a plain language brochure designed to help people understand the options available when preparing their wills if they want to include provision for their pets.

Pets share the lives of the majority of Australians with approximately 65% of all Australian households owning a pet. While they are beloved members of our family, how many of us have thought about what might happen if our furry family members outlive us?

My regular Wednesday morning guest on 98.5 Sonshine FM is Ross Clifford who is the Principal of Morling College in New South Wales and current President of the Baptist Union of Australia. Each week we chat about a range of issues relating to spirituality and belief.

Today we discussed our responsibility to our pets and whether we should make provision in our wills for our furry and feathered friends.

What do you think about the place of pets in our lives? Do we place too much emphasis on animals or not enough? I’d appreciate your thoughts in the comments section of this post.
