The Apostasy That Wasn't: The Extraordinary Story of the Unbreakable Early Church (full hour)

  • Description: The narrative of the so-called “Great Apostasy” goes like this: just a few centuries after Christ’s death, around the time the Roman Empire converted to Christianity, the true Faith suffered a catastrophic falling-away. The simple truths of the gospel became so obscured by worldliness and pagan idolatry that Christianity required a complete reboot. This idea of a Great Apostasy is one of the cornerstones of American Protestantism, along with Mormonism, the Jehovah’s Witnesses, and even Islam. Countless millions today profess a faith built on the assumption that the early Church quickly became broken beyond repair, requiring some new prophet or reformer to restore the pure teaching of Jesus and the apostles. This theory is popular... but its also fiction. Rod Bennett is here with the truth.

Life from Our Land: The Search for a Simpler Life in a Complex World (full hour)

  • Description: A UK dictionary has declared “binge-watching,” or watching multiple episodes of a TV show in a short period of time, to be the ‘Word of the Year’ for 2015. This is just the latest example of how our lives revolve around technology. We pursue technology because we think it will make us happy, but has this pursuit hampered our ability to discern what true happiness is? Marcus Grodi moved his family from the city to an Ohio farmland to answer this question. He joins us today to tell us what he discovered.
