Episode 2 - Just Have to Be a Good Person to Get to Heaven
God won’t deny me heaven… I am not evil…I’m actually a pretty good person. It doesn’t matter what religion you identify with, or if you identify with any religion at all–what matters is that you are a good person. Ideas like these are nearly universally accepted, even among devout Christians. But what if the idea of “being good” as the standard of one’s salvation is actually bad? But could this idea be thwarting the initiative to save sols. In Just Have to Be a Good Person to Get to Heaven, Devin Schadt and Judah Kennedy discuss five reasons why the idea of “being a good person” is illogical and refutes itself.
Episoide 1 - Don’t Fall for Zero
Zero sum thinking, also called zero sum fallacy assumes that there is a fixed amount of “X’ and when two parties desire “X,” one person’s gain will become another person’s loss. In Don’t Fall for Zero, Devin Schadt and Judah Kennedy discuss questions like: How do Christians apply the zero-sum fallacy to God, Mary, and the saints? Is praying to the saints stealing honor from God? Is the veneration of saints an act of idolatry that robs God of His glory? What does zero sum thinking say about God and how does it affect our relationship with God? In this episode Devin and Judah answer these questions and much more.
