This week, Brian and Eric sit down to give their thoughts on Eric’s interview with their friend Spencer Flippin. They discuss the universal meaning of suffering, give some evangelical discussion strategies, and, most importantly, push back against the idea that the purpose of religion is to be a good person. They connect that very issue, as well, in their response to Spencer’s question on how we as Catholics can bear to call people to become Catholic when it is so clear that our church is full of sinners. It’s a loaded week, to say the least! Enjoy!
