Hello everyone, and welcome to the Freethinking Podcast! In this introductory episode, Tim Stratton and myself, Scott Olson, have a conversation about Freethinking Ministries, the Christian apologetics & theology ministry started by Stratton himself.
If you’re listening to this podcast, you likely have taken 1 Peter 3:15, which says “but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect,” to heart. We hope to, as these episodes come out, underscore exactly why it is so crucial that every single Christian have a functional understanding of apologetics.
You guys are all in for a great ride. Tim is a brilliant thinker, and I get the privilege of asking him questions and acting as a guide for our conversation. I hope you take advantage of listening and continually share the show, so that we may better equip the church to engage the culture!
There are three things you can do right now if you want to help equip the church: 1) Listen every week and try to engage intellectually with your faith, even when it’s difficult; 2) Leave a rating & review on iTunes, as this will entice more people to “take the plunge” and begin listening; 3) Share the show with at least 1 other person you think might need to hear it. If you do those things, you’ll be an outstanding member of the Freethinking Ministries community! Let’s get thinking! (Yeah that probably won’t catch on)
