The Podechesis Podcast (Episode 31) What is Required of Humanity: An Introduction to the Ten Commandments

What is the obligation of all believers?  How are Christians to know what that obligation is?  What is the moral law?  What are the Ten Commandments and do they still matter today?  

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.
