A search into Biblicist Christianity started when Jada sent me a link to an article titled, “A Christian Husband’s Guide to Grooming His Young Wife”. What started as a quick Facebook message turned into a four-hour rabbit hole combing through a website that made me want to gouge my eyes out. So that’s what we are talking about today on the podcast.Disclaimer: Anything in this podcast is based on our research and our own opinions. Content is not acceptable for children.

The Branch Davidians Part 3

The failed operation then turned into a 51-day standoff.

The standoff ended when a fire engulfed the complex on April 19, 1993....

Your constant mean-spirited mocking of Christianity makes an otherwise good show very difficult to listen to. We get it, you grew up in a culty environment where they skewed and misinformed their fellowship, obviously with a lack of teachings about understanding passages and concepts. I'm so sorry that happened, but can you please stop being so horribly offensive about Christianity? Maybe just save all that amo for your episodes on Christianity, since you believe it to be a cult. Surely it's not something that needs to come up in EVERY episode. That's what therapy is for. PLEASE!
