February 5th, 2016 Episode 40

Hi and welcome to the brainstorm podcast. This is episode 40 and today is Feb 5th, 2016. I’m Cory and my panel tonight are Destin, Rene, Leo, new crew member Chippy and  the always amazing Dave doing sound here in Roman Empire studios in Regina, Saskatchewan. Tonight we’ve got Nathan Phelps video chatting with us. Nathan is the former ED of the Calgary CFI, he’s on the board of directors for Recovering from Religion, and is a well-known speaker within the atheist community. He grew up as a member of the infamous Phelps family and converted to atheism after escaping from the Westboro Baptist church.

Holy Trinity = God the Father + God the Son + God the Holy Spirit








All have sinned and are thereby separated from God. Salvation is through faith in Christ and, for some, sacraments and good works.







Eternal heaven or hell (most denominations); temporary purgatory (Catholicism)





Prayer, Bible study, baptism, Eucharist (Communion), church on Sundays, numerous holidays.




Bible (Hebrew Bible + New Testament)
