    B. -

    We want to first see the reception that this one has with the audience. If we did another one, what would you prefer the topic be?

    By the way, I want to admit a mistake I made. Regarding the Talmud depicting Jesus in hell; you were correct and I was incorrect; it *is* in there. It is *not* the the Toledot Yeshu (however, according to the Jewish Encyclopedia, there is a “parallel” in that document).

    Thanks for coming on, you were a good sport and I am glad I learned something! :smile:

    Vocab!

    Hi Vocab…the show at Redemption Radio (Brett Strong vs. the awesome Jeff Durbin [the 1st show]) is the 4th MOST POPULAR SHOW IN THE HISTORY OF REDEMPTION RADIO in only 22 days …and the 2nd podcast (Q&A section) is the 7th most popular show in the history Redemption Radio, in only 22 days

    So hopefully our show (Brett Strong vs. Vocab will do just as well , if not better [there is already 142 hits in only 5 days so we’ll see how popular the show will ultimately be])

    Vocab; the Talmud thing, no biggy, we all make mistakes—its part of being an animal (…note Vocab: Divine beings wouldn’t make mistakes but animals do; therefore we do too make mistakes because we are animals [of the human species], doing the best we can on earth just like all animals on earth)

    PS: if you and your crew want to do another show, awesome; and any topic that I am proficient in would be great. Like (to name a few)…

    …If Jesus is a fictional character then how did Christianity begin/get of the ground? …Was the apostle Paul a mad man/a lunatic/deeply delusional? …Are the gospels mere fiction writings guised as biographies? …Is the bible logical, moral, and scientific? …Is the OT god real? …are Christians forgiven of their sins, or are they delusional in this area too?

    …or we could debate worldviews, yours vs. mine

    Anyways, it was great debating you Vocab (and Pastor Bob and Vermon were awesome hosts) and would like to do it a gain on any topic you and your crew would like; just give me a call or shoot me an e-mail…and as always keep the Jesus faith Vocab (and all Christians) –love Jesus with all your heart, mind and soul, and spread awesome love in Jesus’ name…just lose the dogma (the hell dogma, obey the bible dogma, god is mad at you dogma, you are a sinner dogma, and similar things)…fair enough? Have a great day and may your god/Jesus bless you greatly in all your doings Vocab and pastor Bob and Vermon!

    Mr. Strong: If we as Christians ‘lose the dogma’, we fail to ‘keep the Jesus faith’…
