    #09 Why Care What Leviticus Says About Homosexuality? - Joe Heschmeyer

    Leviticus 18:22 condemns same-sex activity. But who cares? After all, Leviticus condemns things like eating shrimp. So is there any legitimate reason to accept parts of Leviticus as still binding, while treating other parts as obsolete?

    #07 The Problem With Taking The Bible Literally - Joe Heschmeyer

    #07 The Problem With Taking The Bible Literally - Joe Heschmeyer

    Should we take the Bible literally? How did the earliest Christians take it? And how can we tell when the authors are and aren’t speaking literally?

    Speaker 1:

    Welcome to Shameless Popery. I want to explore a potentially hot button issue today, the question of taking the Bible literally.

    #06 Who Can Forgive Sins? - Joe Heschmeyer

    Joe Heschmeyer:
    Hi, and welcome to Shameless Popery. I’m Joe Heschmeyer. Today I want to explore sacramental confession, the idea of confessing your sins to a priest, and particularly I want to address a really common objection that I’ve heard that is in one sense, a biblical objection that only God can forgive sins.
    Now I think this is an important objecti…

    #05 Development of Doctrine and St. Vincent of Lerins - Joe Heschmeyer

    #05 Development of Doctrine and St. Vincent of Lerins - Joe Heschmeyer

    These days, St. Vincent of Lérins is a largely-forgotten Saint and Church Father. But his insights into how we understand both the role of tradition and the “Development of Doctrine” are important for Christians today to seriously grapple with.

    #04 Does Christmas Have Pagan Origins? - Joe Heschmeyer

    #04 Does Christmas Have Pagan Origins? - Joe Heschmeyer

    Each December, as we approach Christmas, there are articles proclaiming that the “real reason” we celebrate Christmas on December 25th is because of pagan holidays. So is Christmas based on the pagan feast of Saturnalia? Or is it based on the feast of Sol Invictus? And if not either of these, how did Christians end up celebrating Christmas on December 25th?

Very approachable apologists.

Joe’s depth of knowledge is amazing, but at the same time very approachable. He has such a down to earth manner, which makes his apologetics so understandable. I enjoy him on Catholic Answers Live, and I’m ecstatic that he has his own podcast!!

A podcast? A whole treaty!

This is not a podcast… it’s a course, or a set of lessons on Church History! Five stars are few to qualify this podcast. And the best thing is that, at the end, Joe closes each episode with a bang. Congratulations Joe, keep on going!

Lazy and shallow Theology come to die here.

If you’re seeking Truth with a capital “T” Joe will help you find it. No logical incoherence or straw-manning - holy shamelessness; Joe Heschmeyer goes hard in the paint and finishes with AUTHORITY. I am grateful to be formed by a man who is unashamedly an Apostle. Never lower the bar, Joe!!!! Demand excellence of yourself and continue forming those who listen in the Truth.
