||CleanEp. 19 - Tradition||Tradition. The word conjures up all sorts of things, good and bad, for each of us. But what is it? Is it good? Is it bad? What is our culture's general disposition towards it? What does Jesus say about it? In this episode, Jim Slice and Trevor Hoffman consider the usefulness of tradition and (briefly) disagree on whether or not Die Hard is a Christmas movie.||12/10/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

The scripture teaches us that fear of a man is a real temptation for many of us. But what can we do about it? David Eill and Jon Hyatt hop on the show to give some insight.
