Classics, Doctrinal Differences, Guns and Church Safety

Owens is armed only with a iPhone 4, apparently

The Spin Team gathers once again to answer some of the great questions they’ve received from listeners. The first query concerns must-read classic books from authors long gone. Next, the intrepid trio considers just how many doctrinal differences a congregant should bear in a church before he or she knows that it’s time to move on.

Moving to a more controversial topic: Should churches be gun-free zones, or should they have a security team and/or members who are concealed-carrying in case of a threat? The Virginian, the Marylander, and the gun-deprived Englishman offer their two cents...and expect change!

We would love to offer our listeners the opportunity to win one of Todd’s “sleeveless T-shirts,” but he would not donate any from his collection. Perhaps that’s for the best. However…we do encourage you to register for the opportunity to win a free copy of Saint Augustine’s Confessions!
