First, sorry for the ruffling sounds. We got some new audio equipment, and are getting used to it.
In this episode we continue to discuss the issue of racial reconciliation, diving into important distinctions between culture and ethnicity.
The subject of "racial reconciliation" has become a hot-button issue today, even in the Church. Thomas and Dave attempt to extract the conversation from the political rhetoric and ask the question, "What doe the Bible have to say about racial reconciliation?" This is the first episode in what will be a multi-part series.
While Dave Berry is off this week at a conference, Men of Athens hits the road. Thomas is joined by special guest Matt Mormance. Matt and his family have spent the last seven years serving as missionaries in Ljubljana ('loo-BLYAN-a'), Slovenia. In this episode we talk a little about what missionaries do and answer the question, "What is a missionary?"
In this episode, Thomas and Dave talk about the foundation of the Christian faith - The Bible. Is the Bible trustworthy? Is it true? What about skeptics? We touch on all of those questions.
