    Don't Let the Algorithms Trap You

    The internet is an “attention economy.” Websites sell your attention to advertisers and use sophisticated algorithms to personalize your feed. Myron Eby and Verlon Miller discuss the downsides of an internet built around selling ads, and encourage us toward some ways to combat those dangers by intentionally seeking good sources of information.

    Without a Complicated Interpretation?

    Without a Complicated Interpretation?

    Does communion involve the literal body of Jesus? Does baptism save us? Dean Taylor addresses listener comments regarding baptism and the Lord’s supper. These questions were responses to Dean’s episode “The Essence of Anabaptism” in which he emphasized believing scripture “without a complicated interpretation.” Some viewers argued that doesn’t fit with Anabaptist views of communion and baptism. You can view these and other comments, as well as the https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DcnIA_NDafY (original episode on YouTube).

    An Update from Anabaptist Perspectives

    An Update from Anabaptist Perspectives

    As our board and staff were together recently, we hammered out a vision statement.
    “Using digital media to encourage allegiance to Jesus’s sacrificial kingdom.”
    We also discussed operation improvements. Until now we have run this podcast by seasons and currently we are in Season 4. Going forward, we will not be using seasons. We will instead release episodes biweekly and avoid extensive season breaks.
    With more time between episodes, this is a good chance to check out our other podcast. “https://essays-for-king-jesus.captivate.fm/listen (Essays for King Jesus)” consists of professionally narrated essays from our blog.
    Also you can listen to the audiobook we produced last year in partnership with David Bercot. Find In God We Don’t Trust on Apple books or search any major audiobook platform.
    If you are interested in helping to financially support Anabaptist Perspectives, you can https://anabaptistperspectives.org/donate (donate here) or join our https://anabaptistperspectives.org/partners (monthly partner program).
    Thanks again for all of your support and encouragement over the last four plus years!

    Community, Disagreement, and Discussion

    Community, Disagreement, and Discussion

    [Note: After this episode, we will be shifting to a biweekly release schedule.]
    One YouTube commenter wrote: “In the Anabaptist worldview, we value community above almost everything else. We are often even reluctant to discuss controversial Bible passages for fear of disrupting our sense of community. In the academic world, on the other hand, promoting, debating, and defending your own controversial views is an essential skill.” This was only one of the comments left on Vince Beiler’s episode https://youtu.be/0ZhVhWUBZjw (“Does Academia Cause Loss of Faith?”). In this episode, Vince is joined by Roseanne Bauman to discuss questions around study, debate and disagreement, and living in communities where your field of work is an unusual choice.

    Are Anabaptists the Only Kingdom Christians?

    Are Anabaptists the Only Kingdom Christians?

    A listener commented “I love the theology and cannot stand the exclusivity” in reference to John’s episode “https://anabaptistperspectives.org/importance-kingdom-god (The Kingdom of God in Anabaptist Thought).”
    John affirms the existence of other Kingdom Christians. His comments also clarify what he means by Kingdom theology. We are to be a city set on a hill, which is a light to the world as a community, not just as individuals. We are to be a society of the redeemed demonstrating what the world should look like.
