The Antithesis exists to clarify the difference Christianity and every system, worldview, and religion. Armed with a big vision of God and a passion for divine grace, we help listeners to understand sound biblical doctrine and to distinguish it from ideologies that seek to take us captive (Colossians 2:8). Our burden is defensive but also offensive: we seek the destruction of intellectual and behavioral strongholds in order that we would taste the joy of a mind set free by Christ (2 Corinthians 10:3-6). Ultimately, The Antithesis seeks to aid in theological discipleship; our goal is to set the heart and mind on fire for God, and to stand immoveable in a chaotic and fallen realm.

    Biblical Truth for Bad Times: Seven Realities of Christian Citizenship in a Fallen World

    On this episode of The Antithesis, Dr. Strachan offers up some more considerations on Christ and Caesar issues. We hope it proves a profitable time of thinking for all listeners. How do we conduct ourselves as citizens of earthly countries while still being members of the Kingdom?
    1.   We recall that we are in implacable conflict with the world.
    2.   We seek to submit to Caesar as much as possible.
    3.   We also recognize that submission is not and cannot be unbounded among men.
    4.   We remember that the terms of our citizenship matter—and we use our rights.
    5.   We remember that there are biblical examples of godly people defying tyranny and evil.
    6.   We define love of neighbor properly.
    7.   We think in terms of jurisdiction and sphere sovereignty.

    Do Not Fear Death: Why Christians Live Differently from Unbelievers

    In this episode, Dr. Strachan examines the fear of death and through this text: Hebrews 2:14–18.
    Naturally we fear death. In Christ, death has lost its sting and Christians should no longer fear death and plan our lives accordingly.
    First, know this: we naturally do fear death.
    Second, we are freed from the fear of death.
    Third, we are not allowed to fear death any longer.
    Fourth, our lives should be structured accordingly.

Biblically-based and thought-provoking

His recent podcast on masking and vaccine mandates led me to spend several hours studying my Bible with the references he provided. It helped me articulate to friends and family my arguments in a loving way.

Love this podcast.

I absolutely love The Antithesis. My husband and I listen to every episode. Owen Strachan is articulate, straightforward, and thorough in every topic he discusses. He speaks the truth in love and never compromises the Gospel.

Love!

This podcast feels like I’m in that movie where It’s the end of the world, and the only person left to communicate is one guy with a ham radio and he’s giving you the most important information for survival that you will ever hear.
