20:32 - The Church claims it’s the only authority of scripture, but according to natural law we’re able to reason to moral truths ourselves. Isn’t that a double standard? 

28:43 - My atheist friend says religion is just something people tell themselves for a long enough time until they believe it. How can I respond to him?

48:22 - In Exodus 21:20 there’s a law that says if someone beats their slave to death they’re punished by death, but if the slave recovers, they’re not punished by death because a slave is his master’s property. Why is the slave, made in the image and likeness of God, someone’s property?
