3GT Episode 171: Lent Free?

The guys lately have noticed people with black crosses on their foreheads. So they thought it might be important to discuss Lent. What is it, exactly, and should the church observe it?

They begin by discussing an event in church history related to Lent known as "The Affair of the Sausages" that Zwingli got started with some hot preaching. From there, they journey into how the season of Lent developed, what is often cited as the Biblical basis for it, and the typical practices - such as giving up meat on Fridays  - surrounding it. They then delve into it in a Biblical and confessional matter, pointing out some of the dangers of letting our "fasting be seen by others" (Matt. 6:16) and helpful distinctions that need to be made.

So join the guys and have a listen to this episode of 3GT!
