The polemical guy is not very popular these days. Is there any place for preaching against Rob Bell, Joel Osteen, Andy Stanley, or some other big preacher guy or religious writer in the church? The folks sitting in the pews have access to books, podcasts, radio programs, etc. from who knows who these days. Should the preacher warn them about this book or that book? Is it possible to get too picky? Kevin Swanson breaks down four categories of squishiness in evangelicalism today. The Jen Hatmaker crowd, The Rob Bell Emergents, The Hank Hanegraaffs and the Reversions, and the New Age Mystics in Yoga Pants. J.D. Hall, a practicing polemicist explains the role of polemics and boundaries for it on this edition of the program.

This program includes: 

1. Generations with Kevin Swanson 

2. The World View in 5 Minutes with Adam McManus (Communists Cracking Down on Sunday Schools and Youth Camps, Republican Senators to Vote on Obamacare Repeal, Judge Places Injunction on Pro-Abortion Counseling Law in Illinois)
