Bible scholar Dr. Ben Witherington often says that we live in a “biblically illiterate, Jesus haunted culture.” Though we have retained some vague notions about Jesus and Christianity, the decline of biblical literacy along with education in general and critical thinking in particular has made us easy prey for the constant barrage of false ideas that press in on us from every angle. This is true even for many of us in the Church—we have succumbed to the spirit of the age being more influenced by Hollywood and social media than by Scripture, reason, and common sense. We often find ourselves at a loss for how to respond to cultural hot topics in everything from sexual morality to politics to science etc. Thus, our purpose at Freemind is to provide a thoughtful analysis of these topics as they arise utilizing the tools of biblical theology and philosophy.

Relevant, Deep, & Fun

Freemind is such a relevant podcast. Seth and Nirva aren’t afraid to talk about culturally controversial topics and share how people with a Biblical worldview should approach or think through different culturally relevant situations and issues. I have learned so much and have been challenged through this podcast. I am so grateful for the wisdom, knowledge, and thoughtful conversations that happen on Freemind!

Solid Truth

I love this podcast! I just started listening to them because I love Seth and Nirvas Music. I love how encouraging they are and biblically knowledgeable too. I listen to them on my way to work. I recommend you take a listen!
