What is the meaning of Christmas and how should we approach the topic as Christians? Is it really about being good for goodness' sake? What about Santa and the concept of gift-giving? We touch on all of these topics, and more, on today's episode.
Branching off from our discussion of war, we now look at the concept of pacifism. Does the Bible prescribe, or require, Christians to be pacifists? Is it something that Christians should aspire to? What does it mean to our love our neighbor and how does that fit with the idea of self-defense or the defense of others? We cover all of this, and more, on today's episode.
