We started off the show with a reading from Pastor’s new Hawaiian Pidgin Bible translation.

For the Inquisition, Pastor asked Thomas what his least favorite archeological arguments for and against Christianity are. Thomas asked Pastor to talk about how the Lord’s Prayer is a model for all other Christian prayers.
