The Bible tells us that “for freedom, Christ has set us free”. What does this mean though for our every day lives? Are non-believers somehow enslaved? And if God is sovereign do we even have free will?
Megan and Michael talk about all things freedom – does true freedom exist, and are we really free in the 21st century?
From overthrowing the yoke of human slavery (Israel’s Exodus from Egypt) to Jesus’ promise that “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free”, the concept of freedom is at the heart of the Biblical story.
But what does it mean for our everyday lives to be free? Are we truly free if we still feel the weight of sin in our lives? Can we ever, truly have free will?
On ‘Through the wardrobe’, Michael and Megan discuss last year’s medieval comedy Catherine Called Birdy, and how this tale of a young Englishwoman navigating 13th-century society relates to the idea of being truly ‘free’.
Plus, in a brand new segment called ‘You can’t ask that’ Michael confronts Megan on one of the most divisive issues in church history; what it means to be Arminian – and can you really call yourself a Christian and Arminian at the same time?
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.
