Ancients Texts and Salvation - Listener Feedback - 050

By Jeff Manildi & Allen O'Brien

In honor of our fiftieth episode, we have opened the floodgates for listener feedback and questions. By happenstance, all of the questions have theological themes around scripture, the nature of salvation, and faith reconstruction and deconstruction. The hosts dive into a personal discussion of these issues and conclude with a hard conversation on both the death of Justice Scalia and what it means to love your enemies.   Listener Feedback Questions (02:04) Current Events Segment (01:01:04) RELEVANT LINKS   02:04 - “I'm not sure if you could fit this one into one topic! But I'd like to hear your guys' take on extra biblical writings like the Gospels of Thomas and Mary, The Lost Books of Enoch, etc. Are they to be taken as scripture? Are they blasphemy? Or did the Council of Nicaea just see them as unworthy, because of their messages?” - Dakota from Facebook   Council of Nicaea (Wikipedia Article) The Gnostic Gospels by Elaine Pagels (Book - Amazon Affiliate Link) Gnosticism (Wikipedia Article) Docetism (Wikipedia Article) The Gospel of Thomas (Ancient Text) It’s Time to Give the Gospel of Thomas Its Due (Patheos Blog Post) Fabricating Jesus: How Modern Scholars Distort the Gospels by Craig A.
