Heresy! Is it a category we need today, or a hang-over from a bygone era? Megan and Michael discuss, and politely hold back from calling each other heretics.
Just because the word ‘heresy’ has fallen out of fashion, doesn’t mean it has ceased to exist.
Megan Powell du Toit and Michael Jensen kick off season three of With All Due Respect, turning their attention to this thorny topic.
Their examination begins with a look at the Netflix movie The Two Popes and how it presents a recent clash of theologies in the Catholic church.
Then in For Arguments Sake, Megan and Michael discuss how heresy is currently defined, where it’s likely to turn up in the church and what ‘heresies’ the media has found interesting – including the Christian angst over Israel Folau – as well as how we should go about dealing with heresies when we find them.
Finally, what heresies do Megan and Michael find personally attractive? Well, tune in to find out…

WHAT IS WITH ALL DUE RESPECT?
Less aggro, more conversation.
Is it even possible to have a deep discussion without it descending into chaos? Michael Jensen and Megan Powell du Toit think yes, and want to show the rest of us how to do it.
There’s plenty of things they disagree on: free will, feminism, where you should send your kids to school and what type of church you should go to. But there are also plenty of other things that they have in common. They want to talk about all these things with conviction. But they also want the conversation to be constructive. Tune in to find out if that’s possible.
