On June 14, 2018, our chapter co-directors from Winthrop University, Devin and Melissa Pellew were interviewed in a discussion covering Cultural Marxism on campus, Anti-Christian bias being ingrained in the students, the definition of "Critical Theory," and how learning apologetics can help keep college students from being turned off to the Christian faith.

  • Raising Kids Christian and Helping Them Stay That Way on "Connecting Faith" Radio

    How do you keep kids from leaving the church and the Christian faith by the time they reach college? "Connecting Faith" with host Carmen LaBerge did this June 2018 interview with RC College Prep's Thomas Griffin. They discussed preparing teens with an apologetics background for entering college and also how to teach apologetics to younger kids. Listen to the interview for several references to elementary-level apologetics authors including Tom's own material for 5th through 8th graders (this is not official RC curriculum because we do not yet have an outreach below high school level, but we are proud of Tom for his endeavor into this area). We thank Carmen and the Faith Radio network for another interview with an RC rep.

  • RC's Historic Scrolls in Kentucky's Capitol, covered in News Video

    Ratio Christi's historic Old Testament scrolls and Torahs were on display at Kentucky's Capitol Building in Frankfort on April 4, 2018. We've discovered that their appearance was given advance coverage in a March 27 Lexington TV video broadcast. Over time, donations of centuries-old scrolls and artifacts have been donated to Ratio Christi for educational purposes. We now own 2 scrolls, 4 Torahs, and more items are available to us on loan by the Artifacts Foundation. Some of these pieces have survived major destructive events in world history, including the Holocaust. Our representatives travel the country visiting churches, schools, community centers - and yes, even capitol buildings.

  • RC's Director of Marketing, Outreach on "Stand Up for the Truth" and "Connecting Faith" Radio

    RC's Director of Marketing and Outreach, Julie D. Loos, was interviewed March 5, 2018 on "Stand Up for the Truth" streaming internet radio (also heard on Q90 FM radio in Wisconsin) on "Young People Abandoning the Christian Faith" and how RC apologetics can help Millennials and "Gen Z" through its use in churches and by parents with their kids. Julie gives many startling statistics about where our youth are with the Christian faith, for example only six percent actually have a biblical worldview. This podcast with host Mike LeMay is worth hearing.

    Within a week, Julie had the opportunity to give this information out again on a new Faith Radio Network program, "Connecting Faith" with Carmen LaBerge. Hear this one.

  • Ratio Christi Event at Appalachian State University draws Controversy and Media attention

    A February 13, 2018 event sponsored by Ratio Christi at ASU had promised to be very controversial, with posters and meetings protesting the Christian conservative speaker, Dr. Michael Brown. But the event went ahead without incident, and the resulting school newspaper article in The Appalachian was quite positive. in fact, the news interview even yielded a positive comment from a student leader who disagreed with the speaker's worldview, stating that regardless, Brown had the right to speak. Chapter Director Greg Walker is also quoted in the article. ASU was the first university at which RC had a formal chapter, and it is still going strong.

  • Media Interviews continue for RC President's New Co-Authored Book "Leaving Mormonism"

    Does the LDS church represent biblical Christianity? The question has enchanted more than a few radio hosts and their audiences. So they have been coming to the source -- our president Corey Miller who was a sixth generation Mormon when he decided to embrace biblical Christianity and Jesus as Savior! Dr. Miller's new co-authored book, Leaving Mormonism: Why Four Scholars Changed their Minds was publicly released on November 28, 2017. The latest interviews have been:

    As of January 2018, Southwest Radio Ministries is now carying two podcast interviews on their website with Corey and his co-author Lynn Wilder, who spoke on their "Watchmen on the Wall" programming, heard all over the U.S.

    Reason for Truth Apologetics ministry with host Steven Garofalo, interview with Corey and co-author Lynn Wilder. Hear this podcast at Reason for Truth, recorded in December 2017 and posted in Jauary 2018.

    Popular nationally syndicated talk show host Janet Mefferd spoke with Dr. Miller on her program, "Janet Mefferd Today," which can now be heard in her podcasts by selecting 12/5/17. Miller's family history as a sixth generation Mormon was explored, as well as the angle that Mormons are under extreme pressure to perform good works in order to achieve their salvation. This can lead to the over-use of depression and anxiety drugs among members of the LDS church.

    Shortly before the book's release date, he was interviewed by Pastor Mike Spaulding at Soaring Eagle Radio in this podcast which can be heard anytime. Dr. Spaulding, also senior pastor at Calvary Chapel in Lima, Ohio, has a background in apologetics. Spaulding and Miller explored how the book's four authors came together and wrote chapters in the book about their different experiences in how they discovered Christ. 

    (Janet Mefferd and Pastor Spaulding have both previously interviewed Dr. Miller and other representatives of Ratio Christi before about our ministry, and we are grateful for their interest.) 

    Dr. Miller also participated in a debate-style interview with his co-editor/co-author Lynn Wilder, also an ex-Mormon, on "Unbelievable," a popular streaming Premier Christian Radio program out of the United Kingdom, with host Justin Brierley and a current Mormon.
