Asking and sometimes answering tough questions about faith, religion and culture.

In The Beginning…

November 19th, 2017

So much of the Christian faith hinges on what happened in the beginning. This week, we discuss whether there are two separate creation stories in Genesis, the first marriage, if the description of creation literal or figurative, and all of these questions are pivotal to your faith.

Evangelicalism is Colonialism

October 21st, 2017

Why does the approach of evangelicalism look similar to colonialism? We're discussing the history and where we think things have gone wrong. We challenge a common understanding of the Great Commission as we explore if Jesus really asked us to convert everyone. If not, then what did he mean?

In this Extended Cut, we're discussing some of the daily things that must be considered when living while black. It's all on the table; interacting with police, fashion choices, code switching, and we even get into one of the types of black privilege.

Good Christian

September 30th, 2017

In this episode we're discussing what it means to be a good Christian. What does it look like, in practice? What should we be saying or not saying? And we look at a ridiculous example from Mr. Left Behind himself, Kirk Cameron.

Extended Cut - The Boycott

September 23rd, 2017

Our new Extended Cuts are off the topic of faith (usually) and deal with other important issues. In this extended cut, we discuss how the boycott is going and our opinions on the future of the NFL. The episode was recorded pre-45 tweet. Opinions have not changed. Conviction that this boycott is the right thing is stronger than ever.

Do We Need Faith?

September 17th, 2017
We are back!! 
 
In our first episode of season 2, we're trying to answer the question 'is faith necessary?' We tackle the issue of faith being a crutch, if there is a point to prayer, and how involved is God?
