Talking about the Things that Matter Most on October 27, 2017

Is Hell irrational? Are actions made by finite creatures really worthy of infinite punishment? Al responds to these questions, as well as the claim that religion causes more violence.
4:20 – How to Truly Understand Jesus
Over the last two millennia our understanding of Jesus has been shaped by different cultural influences, many of them of Western European origin. But Christ did not grow up in Europe; he was a Jewish man living in a Jewish land, observing Jewish customs while he spoke to Jewish people. By putting Him back into this context, we are able to more fully understand and appreciate Christ’s teachings. We’ll talk about it with Robby Gallaty.
5:00 – The Patriarchy has been Replaced by a Stifling Matriarchy
The radical Feminist movement describes the patriarchy as the male-dominated society that must be overthrown in order to “liberate” women.

We’ll take a look with Carrie Gress.
