Ep 475 – 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!!!
Ep 473 – Week of Tannehill – The Signs of the Times
What does the “latter day” in Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints actually mean? When is the end of the world coming and what are the signs that it is near? This was the 14th episode of Infants on Thrones, originally published in April 2013, and it is a doozy.
Ep 471 – Week of Tannehill – The Abrahamic Covenant
What is the Abrahamic covenant and why is it so important to Mormons like Mike Tannehill? For listeners who do not know Mike Tannehill, get ready. He’s making a return to the podcast soon. So think of “The Week of Tannehill” as a year supply of sorts, preparing for the end times, this time with extra weevils.
