    Are All Religions Just the Same?

    Is picking a religion to follow just like picking an ice cream flavor? Does it just come down to personal preference? We live in a society that has normalized religious relativism and reduced belief to individual taste. Today, Dr. Sri explains how to navigate the major differences between religions, and teaches us why as Christians, we cannot conform God to our personal opinions.

My role model

I found my way to Dr. Sri after a teacher friend recommended his wonderful book, Who Am I To Judge? Dr. Sri is a great role model for people approaching life and family challenges with a Catholic worldview. He also gives great guidance on sharing our faith with others. He has a calm, kind mode of delivery, kind of like a Mr. Rogers for the adult podcast world - I love him!
