The Antithesis exists to clarify the difference Christianity and every system, worldview, and religion. Armed with a big vision of God and a passion for divine grace, we help listeners to understand sound biblical doctrine and to distinguish it from ideologies that seek to take us captive (Colossians 2:8). Our burden is defensive but also offensive: we seek the destruction of intellectual and behavioral strongholds in order that we would taste the joy of a mind set free by Christ (2 Corinthians 10:3-6). Ultimately, The Antithesis seeks to aid in theological discipleship; our goal is to set the heart and mind on fire for God, and to stand immoveable in a chaotic and fallen realm.

    Every Christian to the Wall: Opposing Our Generational Challenge to the Gospel

    Welcome to The Antithesis with Owen Strachan. 
    Wokeness is an evil, anti-gospel ideology. And it’s taking the Christian world by storm. “Christianity and Wokeness” is a call for every Christian to stand against this false gospel. Christians must know the gospel so well, but we also must know the various counterfeit gospels that exist. The time is now to get on the wall to defend the gospel against the threat of wokeness.

    What Is Wokeness? Answering a Hard Question in Light of the Gospel

    What Is Wokeness? Answering a Hard Question in Light of the Gospel

    Welcome to The Antithesis with Owen Strachan.

    What does it mean to be woke? Wokeness is an awareness of the true nature of Western civilization, and now understand it to be a wickedly racist order.

    This ideology has infiltrated the church.

    However, the Bible teaches that we are one new man with all those who have come to faith in Christ Jesus. The blood of Christ washes repentant people and makes them one new man. We wholeheartedly reject ‘wokeness,’ and believe that God has brought people together based upon the reconciliation that God has achieved for people in Christ Jesus.

    Announcing a Change: City of God Is Becoming The Antithesis

    Announcing a Change: City of God Is Becoming The Antithesis

    Welcome to the first episode of The Antithesis with Owen Strachan.

    The Antithesis, taken from Cornelius Van Til’s writings, seeks to narrow in on the difference between Christianity and every other system. Our goal is to show the absolute ethical antithesis of the faith that comes from God and other ideology, worldview, religion, and system.

    Thank you to all the people who worked hard to make The City of God Podcast possible over the last five years, including the leadership of Midwestern Seminary: Jason K. Allen, Jason Duesing, and Charles Smith. We also want to thank the incredibly talented Communications Department at Midwestern, including Dave Wright, Jason Muir, and Matt Hines. We thank Mike Dixon, assistant to Owen Strachan for all of his help in the transition to The Antithesis, and Jeff Moore, who has provided exceptional research

    We are thrilled to partner with the B.A.R. Podcast Network ( http://thebarpodcast.com/index.php/the-bar-network/ ). Without the help of Dawain ( https://twitter.com/dawain21 ) and Lee ( https://twitter.com/RefMeditations ) , this transition would not have been possible.
