The Antithesis

The Antithesis exists to clarify the difference Christianity and every system, worldview, and religion. Armed with a big vision of God and a passion for divine grace, we help listeners to understand sound biblical doctrine and to distinguish it from ideologies that seek to take us captive (Colossians 2:8). Our burden is defensive but also offensive: we seek the destruction of intellectual and behavioral strongholds in order that we would taste the joy of a mind set free by Christ (2 Corinthians 10:3-6). Ultimately, The Antithesis seeks to aid in theological discipleship; our goal is to set the heart and mind on fire for God, and to stand immoveable in a chaotic and fallen realm.

Do Not Fear Death: Why Christians Live Differently from Unbelievers
Hide Details44min 41s

In this episode, Dr. Strachan examines the fear of death and through this text: Hebrews 2:14–18.

Naturally we fear death. In Christ, death has lost its sting and Christians should no longer fear death and plan our lives accordingly.

First, know this: we naturally do fear death.

Second, we are freed from the fear of death.

Third, we are not allowed to fear death any longer.

Fourth, our lives should be structured accordingly.
