Ep 636 – An Insatiable Need for Justice and the Meandering Search for Karma, P3

Glenn and Tom discuss Neorosurgeon Eben Alexander’s Near Death Experience a way to better understand justice and karma.

Ep 635 – An Insatiable Need for Justice and the Meandering Search for Karma, P2

Tom really hates it when bad people get away with doing bad things. It almost makes him wish there was an afterlife, just so the bad guys can be punished. But what about Karma? Is there any evidence for reincarnation — like maybe children who remember previous lives? What about near death experiences — is there anything at all waiting for us after death? Today’s episode features material from Alan Watts, Dr. Jim Tucker, and Dr. Eben Alexander. Listen in to see what you think.

Ep 634 – An Insatiable Need for Justice and the Meandering Search for Karma, P1

Tom just hates it when good things happen to bad people — maybe you can relate.  Will there ever be justice in this life?  What about the idea of Karma?  Rank McBaddon, Faith Detective, is on the case.

Ep 633 – Seven Deadly Heresies: The Smackdown, Part 5

Glenn, John, Bob, Randy and Mike discuss finish up this 5-part series on McConkie’s 7 Deadly Heresies.  We may not have covered everything perfectly.  But good news.  We don’t have to be perfect.  Pass it on.

Ep 632 – Seven Deadly Heresies: The Smackdown, Part 4

Glenn, John, Bob, Randy and Mike discuss #5 and #6 of McConkie’s deadly heresies.  Namely, that people can progress from kingdom to kingdom in the eternities (#5) and that Adam is our God, the father of our spiritual and physical bodies, who traveled to earth from another planet (#6.)  It’s a fun discussion that also explores the historical influenced on the “Monarch in the Sky” concept of God, as explained by Alan Watts.  It’s a great episode.  Enjoy.

Ep 631 – Seven Deadly Heresies: The Smackdown, Part 3

Have you ever thought that getting married/sealed in the temple guarantees your salvation?  WRONG!  What about the thought that baptisms for the dead give sinners a second chance at redemption?  WRONG AGAIN!  Don’t get complacent!  Don’t start thinking you are doing just fine!!  Don’t ever ever ever ever think that you don’t need the CHURCH or the BIG AND IMPORTANT leaders (ever)!  Listen in as Glenn, John, Randy, Bob, and special guest Mike Tannehill smack down the 3rd and 4th most deadly of heresies as outlined with absolute certainty by an infallible apostle of Jesus Christ.  (Irony?  Hyperbole? Facetiousness?  Where???)

Ep 628 – Week of Tannehill – Noah’s Ark and the Intentional Literalist

The last frock in the Week of Tannehill series, this was originally published in March 2014.  Mike Tannehill joins us once again for this unofficial follow-up to The Unintentional Racist to discuss the recent LDS.com essay on Noah’s Ark with Randy, Scott, Jake, Erica, and Glenn.
Here is the link to the Meridian article in defense of Noah’s Ark.
And here is the LDS.org essay Noah.

Ep 627 – Week of Tannehill – The Unintentional Racist

Mike Tannehill (love him or hate him) is fighting the good fight against the Mormon church. Or at least against the influence of those liberal academic types trying to re-write church history — more specifically those authors of the recent essay Race and the Priesthood on LDS.org who would have us believe that church doctrine is nothing more than the “theories” of racist men influenced by a racist time who simply could not call down a revelation from God until 1978. Listen in as Mike explains how he remains True to the Faith. When the enemy assaileth, shall he shirk or shun the fight? NO!!!
