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.

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?

How all this anti-Christmas talk is often just a smokescreen to avoid real conversations about the evidence for Christianity.
