What is a Jew? There are many definitions. The definition given by Dr. E. Michael Jones in his “The Jewish Revolutionary Spirit” is fairly straightforward: he believes that what truly defines the Jews as a people is rejection of Jesus Christ and thus rejection of Logos. Taking this assumption at face value, Max and Red Pill Religion team member and administrator Arran Thompson, who is Jewish, as we discuss this idea.
Is Trinitarianism Paganism? Is Catholic Christianity pagan? Or are those who deny the Holy Trinity really a tiny minority completely unrepresentative of mainstream Christian thought for the last 2000 years? Come as we analyze the errors of fact and reasoning of RockingMRE, and other Anti-Trinitarians.
Max & Holy Spackle Talking about Gay/LGBTQ+ issues and religion LGBTQ+ issues are hard, rendered harder when religious people are scapegoated. Holy Spackle runs a fun middle-of-the-road religion-friendly channel. Join us as we discuss this thorny issue!
The #RedPillReligion crew attempts to defend all religions, but we especially defend our own, and most of us are #orthodox-type #Christians who believe in more than just #TheBible. We believe in something called Sacraments, Sacred Tradition (of which the Bible is an inseparable part), and the Deposit of the Faith. Reformed Christian Apologist is a Bible-only #Calvinist who doesn’t believe in Free Will. Listen to see how different these religions are! The crew intends to respond to some of the references he gave some time in the next week or so. In the meantime…
What is the role of religion in Western history? Look at the pagan world of Greece and Rome, and compare that to Christendom, and then to the postchristian world of the postmodern post-rational post-honesty secular atheist — the basic myth of the Modern era is that this is an evolution, with each generation being wiser and more enlightened than the prior. In reality, the Moderns and the Postmoderns are more abnormal, more irrational, less open to persuasion by evidence, and less healthy morally and mentally than our pagan ancestors. With the loss of Christianity, our civilization loses the things that depend on Christian ideas for their basis, such as a belief in the natural rights and liberties of man and the ability of the universe to be examined by the scientific method. Since the Victorian Age, men have sought to place the Western worldview on a nonreligious foundation, with no success, but instead resulting in hellish nightmares without precedent in history: see Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia and Red China for examples. The non religious starting point meant to serve as a foundation has either been science worship, disguised as science, or various forms of immorality and anarchy, disguised as a love of freedom and liberty. Slavery has returned, now called ‘human trafficking.’ The pagan practice of exposing infants has returned in the form of a woman’s right to choose. Pagan excesses, which even pagans hated, of sexual deviancy are now considered rights as well, and the normal and chaste morality of decent people is considered a violation of civil rights if not a hate crime. One thing leads to another. If sin cannot be criticized, speech cannot be free, and, without free speech, other freedoms have no voice hence no defense. The attempt to base a culture on anything other than a religious worldview is doomed to failure: the thing defeats itself. Taking love of liberty as a starting point, with no context saying how liberty can be abused, one soon arrives at the absurdity of socialized liberty, where the collective dictates speech crimes and thought crimes, always in the name of liberty. See any modern college campus for details. Taking science as a starting point leaves one with a nihilistic world view, where good and evil, fair and foul, right and wrong, all turn into subjective matters of opinion, and science itself turns into a plaything of politics: see, for example, the Global Warming fraud, or the allegedly scientific belief that sex is a cultural construct, not a biological reality.

How most orthodox-type Christians view that mysterious thing called “The Eucharist” and all that “smells and bells” stuff known as the Divine Liturgy. From a livestream on the Max Dean Esmay Group channel.
There are a lot of people that claim to want to make Christian Fundamentalism not seen as extreme. Yet seem to hold extreme views such as Apostolic Succession isn’t important, or that strictly Scripture with the exclusion of tradition (both Oral and Written) should be the only source of doctrine and dogma. Tonight we will examine patristic ideas and writings which are the fundamentals of Christianity. Sources used: https://www.amazon.com/Cambridge-Comp…
