#10284 What’s the Point of Christianity? - Joe Heschmeyer

Terrific show! The best!
Love this show, sincerely… has answered so many of my questions.
Good and helpful!
Many good answers, questions, and help!
Cy and commercials take away from it
After Jerry usher and pat coffin, In our charity I think cy is a step down. He means well but he’s just a little too goofy. And it’s a distraction. Also all the commercials. I think a better apologetic show is EWTN “Called to Communion”. It’s just one hour of straight apologetic answers with no commercials and now goofiness. Still that being said, I do appreciate Catholic answers and all that it’s done. I am glad that we have it
