Podcast: How Atheists Use Misdirection in a Futile Attempt to Discredit Christianity pt.1

*As is evident above, we’ve refreshed the Absolute Truth; Absolutely Podcast. We’ll continue to post new episodes every Tuesday and Thursday. Remember to subscribe to the site in order to be informed whenever new episodes are published.

Description: I was made aware of the video published by “CosmicSkeptic” (real name, Alex O’Connor) in which he criticizes Dennis Prager’s introductory video on a series covering the 10 Commandments, featured on Prager U’s channel.

Worse still are the amounts of congregants who consume their untheological and illogical ramblings, disguised as profound spirituality and philosophy. Therein lies an essential aspect of the Biblical Christian’s mission: to correct those falsehoods and denounce the messengers which advance them for the sake of helping those who come in contact with the lies they advance.

It was with this attitude that I recently proceeded to write a pointed rebuttal to a series of Facebook posts published by an individual I personally knew, a man whom years ago abruptly left the church my father shepherds due to marital infidelity (so as to evade church discipline), only to resurface some time later as an “ordained minister” and head of a small congregation in the state where I reside.
