The quote of the week comes from Tim Keller, a well-known pastor and author, who says "If Christianity is really true, it will be offending and correcting you somewhere."
Speaking from the position that the Christian worldview is the best explanation for reality, Sacred Skeptics Mike Bell and Rick Henderson look inward to expose what it's like when your instinct is to punch your neighbor rather than love them. Is the Holy Spirit trying to tell you something? Truth should matter more to you than your feelings and emotions. After all, following Jesus isn't always easy.
What does it mean to be orthodox? Who decides who is a heretic and who is a faithful true follower? Rick Henderson and Mike Bell dig into the difference between heresy and orthodoxy, teachings that amount to aberrant theology and teachings that are simply misunderstandings, and they start with speaking in tongues -- from a Biblical perspective but also from modern claims. Can you be wrong without necessarily being a heretic? Certainly the wrong teaching can still do damage, so where's the line?
What does it mean to be orthodox when it comes to the Christian faith? What’s the difference between heresy, aberrant teachings and teachings that are just misunderstandings? Join Mike Bell and Rick Henderson as they get real and maybe even a little provocative in this take on Christian orthodoxy.
Few get to vote for their first choice in this election, with democrat Hillary Clinton turning off some voters, and republican Donald Trump turning off others. Some are going with the lesser of two evils. Others are guided by the notion that it’s better to go with the devil you know over the devil you don’t. This week, we engage a Christian leader who says exactly that, and we interview Lis Kraus (College Professor, Christian and Hillary supporter).
In the 2016 election for president of the United States, for some either Hillary or The Donald are the first choice. For most, they are simply the two candidates we are stuck with. How do you pick between Hillary Clinton, a democrat with a storied pedigree but also a controversial history, and Donald Trump, the real estate mogul, reality TV star and crass communicator with strong views on immigration? For voters, does it really come down to the lesser of two evils on Election Day?
