235: Questions I Couldn't Answer as an Evangelical (w/ John Martignoni)
Show Notes

In this episode of The Cordial Catholic, I'm joined by the very cordial John Martignoni, an author, speaker, long-time radio host, and the founder and president of the Bible Christian Society to mine some of the questions that Protestantism – that I, as a Protestant Evangelical Christian – had the hardest time answering.

These are questions like that John calls the "pea under the mattress." Questions like what did Jesus mean in Matthew 18:15 when he explained how to resolve disputes (and how can it possibly be implemented in Evangelical Christianity)? What kind of unity was Christ praying for in John 17? And what did Jesus mean when he gave the apostles – and Peter in particular – the power to "bind and loose"?

These questions, and more, explored this week with John's trademark insight and straight-forward apologetic style. It's a great conversation!
