The podcaster's Ten Commandments surely includes "Thou shalt not release an episode on Christmas since no one will listen to it". LOL However, I have a number of folks who listen to the show who I know do not celebrate Christmas. Some of my Hebrew Israelite listeners believe its a pagan holiday while others see Christmas as an opportunity to get a Christians for some sort of hypocrisy. Certainly not all non-Christmas-ers are like that but given what I do I tend to be in contact with folks who feel that way. Welp, this episode is for you. I offer a few thoughts about bogus objections to Christianity I tend to get from you guys this time of year but then I also address some culture related concerns where we may find some common ground.
Is Ex-Pastor Kevin Wesley’s claim about Jesus being born of a “virgin” being based on the “Virgo “ zodiac sign legit?
What about Ex-Pastor Kevin Wesley’s claim about Jesus being reported to be the “Son”/“Sun”of God actually being a veiled reference to sun worship and astrology?
Examining Brother audio clip of Brother Polight’s take on Christmas.
Why shedding off culture based stumbling blocks to the gospel is an imperative for the church (minus the legalism...)
How all this anti-Christmas talk is often just a smokescreen to avoid real conversations about the evidence for Christianity.
Maaaaan yo...When I first started the Tru-ID podcast I didn’t really know much about recording. As a result there are any mover of interviews that I recorded some time ago that required some editing and fairly recently I’ve been able to go back and clean them up. With that said I’m excited to finally be able to share this interview with a dynamic individual who was actually one of my first guests, Dr. Vince Bantu. Dr. Bantu is a brilliant Brother and as I restored the audio and sat back to listen to this interview it really brought me back to why I started the Tru-ID Podcast. Enjoy!!!
-Ancient African Christianity
-Social justice and seminary education
-Real racial reconciliation
