Episode 092: Stoicism and Christianity. February 2, 2024
Probably the most dramatic and fully reported event of Paul's missionary career took place in Athens at the Areopagus (Acts 17:16-34) approximately two thousand years ago. What's most interesting about the debate with the Epicureans and Stoics is what wasn't debated; namely the myriad of other beliefs held by the philosophers. The Athenians were eager to learn about the One True God, his Son, and the resurrection. We know many accepted Paul's teachings and joined the Covenant. Today, Paul & Mike are honored to welcome Jason Dougherty back into the G Base to discuss Christianity and the many benefits of Stoicism; two philosophies that have much in common, and why warriors today ought to embrace both to prepare for the inevitable challenges to come.
