Great Listen Thanks you guys for talking about this. I've been reading and listening here and there trying to form a biblical perspective and your guys' conversation is balanced and helps greatly. I listen to you guys on a daily basis during my commute and it's always a blessing. I don't always agree, but it's always nice to keep my gears turning in the right direction.
The Most Important Message On This Site! This was the greatest message I have ever heard! I was blessed to have the privilege of hearing it live in Cincinnati and it's great that anyone can listen to it through sermon audio!

It's funny because they answer their own question.
Without God the definition of "good" is arbitrary. Who determines what is good and bad? Hitler thought that killing Jews was good. Without a God who sets the rules and determines what is good, there is no such thing as good.
After reading this article, read India: Christians targeted by religious murder mobs (http://www.sermonaudio.com/new_details.asp?ID=26167) and Christians kidnapped, then killed in Iraq (http://www.sermonaudio.com/new_details.asp?ID=26168). It's a good juxtaposition of typical Christianity today in the West and in the East.
