    The Day of Atonement

We delve into the possibility of atoning for one's wrongdoings, whether or not it's possible and what Kant has to say about it.

Simply Great

So glad they are back at it!! One of the best theology and life discussions you will hear. I need them to come guest star our weekly friends meetup where we breakdown the episodes over beers!

Not Christ centered

I like Scott , don’t like Bill , don’t like that they never talk about salvation . The show leans a little to the left and a lot towards the educator elite class . I recommend but still only give one star because of Bill .

Intelligent and timely conversation about today's issues

Never miss an episode.
