In this episode of The Podechesis Podcast, the guys examine Questions 39-42 of John Wesley’s Revision of the Westminster Shorter Catechism and discuss Christian duty, the reason that obedience is key to faithful living, and why untethering from the Old Testament may not be the best idea.
Along the way, Jim is rude, Allen is offended, and Brett just tries to keep the peace.
