By Aaron Batdorf and Michael Carlino
Do you know what antinomianism means? How about propitiation? Can you explain why they matter? Do you find theology useful in your day to day life? What if we told you that theology is crucial for your walk with God?
We are convinced biblical theology is not just for scholars and ivory tower theologians, but for each Christian.
Our aim in this podcast is to make theology accessible so that we and you would: love God, know truth, and live accordingly.
