Is it possible to fully believe two contradictory beliefs? Dante will test your might and try to convince you of two completely opposite positions to the old idea that the only unforgivable sin is to blaspheme the Spirit by renouncing your faith. Bam! Come get it!!!
Sometimes a dissonance arises between what we say we believe and what it actually turns out we truly hold as true. This week, Dante goes through a self-reckoning in dealing with his doubts about prayer.
Friend of the show Jonathan Benedetti and Dante dialogue about the possible interpretations of passages in the Bible wherein God appears to experience remorse. How can an infinite, all-knowing, all-powerful God have any regrets? The discussion takes us from Stephen King to cool new words such as "anthropopathism"!
In the most rambling episode yet, Dante wonders if religion is just an extension of societal evolution. He trucks over pharaohs, rainbows, and Sigmund Freud in his vain attempt to articulate his doubt.
In this special crossover episode with the podcast "1001 Heroes, Legends, Histories & Mysteries", Dante examines the Biblical aspects of the vanishing of the Ark of the Covenant. Meanwhile, on the 1001 podcast, Dante looks at the disappearance from a strictly historical lens.
Moses' staff turned into a snake, then the Egyptians' staff did the same thing. Moses turns water into blood, and so do the Egyptians. If God is for us, who's against us? Could the answer be different than we think?
Dante realizes that he's been assuming he's known what John 1:1's "Word" has meant his whole life. Now he grapples with the oddity of the word, word, and ponders why John uses these strange accumulation of letters to open his Gospel.
Ever wonder why there's a monster on our logo? In this thematic sequel to episode five, Dante invites you to use your way back machine to imagine an era in history where the line separating myth and reality was as grey as that Liam Neeson movie, "The Grey".
In this angst ridden episode, Dante emotes over Romans chapter nine, wherein Paul reflects on how God hardened Pharaoh's heart, hated Esau before he was born, and prepares vessels (people) for destruction. And if that wasn't enough, Paul goes on to lampoon Dante for wanting to question God. Yup, it's gonna be one of THOSE days.
Why is sacrifice necessary? Or rather, why is it that the shedding of blood exonerates the guilty in God's eyes? For this maiden voyage of the podcast, Dante sets his aim on the big picture of the Bible and redemptive history.
