What Has Athens to Do with Jerusalem?: How Should Christians Relate to Ideas and Practices Which Originate Outside of Christianity?

By November 12, 2021No Comments

In this episode Nick Cady and Michael Payne speak about how Christians should relate to things which originate outside of Christianity, such as yoga, psychology, Christmas, drums, or rock music.

This discussion can be traced all the way back to a historical argument between Tertullian and Justin Martyr which can be summarized by Tertullian’s classic question: “What Has Athens to Do with Jerusalem?”
