    Pastor With All the Questions: Anthony Wirth, Toby, and MaryBeth

    Pastor With All the Questions: Anthony Wirth, Toby, and MaryBeth

    This feels like a classic 2015 BC episode. Anthony Wirth recently quit pastoring his growing church, a part of the Acts29 Church Planting organization Mark Driscoll started. Everything was going great until Anthony did a little reading and started asking questions like, why can't women be in church leadership, does God actually send you to Hell forever to burn, and are we actually predestined for a certain afterlife? The answers to those questions are too scary for many churches to address.

Laughs and thoughts

This show is what got me into podcasts, I started listening to it maybe two years ago from the first episode and I’m now at number 218. I’ve laughed so many times and also had lots of deep thoughts and discoveries about faith, theology and culture through what is still basically a bunch of friends talking about stuff they feel is important or interesting. Highly recommend to anyone, but especially christians.
