It’s a busy week here at CrossExamined! In this midweek podcast episode, Frank reports on the biggest campus event in the history of our ministry and several opportunities for you to get involved in apologetics wherever you are. Then, Phoenix Hayes and Tytus Jones show how we can effectively engage urban communities with the Gospel.
Tytus is a CrossExamined team member and Christian YouTuber who specializes in the unique field of urban apologetics and why it’s needed in the Church today. Having personally encountered friends and loved ones who began to identify as “Hebrew Israelites”, Tytus has used these interactions as inspiration to create content that offers a biblical, apologetic response to various identity-based cult groups. During their talk, Phoenix and Tytus will answer questions like:
- What is Urban Apologetics and what resources are available on the topic?
- Who are the Hebrew Israelites and what are their core beliefs?
- How did debating a Hebrew Israelite affect Ty’s faith journey?
- What attitude do Hebrew Israelites typically hold toward Jews?
- What is the appeal of Hebrew Israelism and what are some of the inconsistencies in their worldview?
- What is the Yoruba tradition and how have celebrities like Beyonce helped to popularize it?
Urban apologetics often seeks to answer the popular (and false) notion that Christianity is just “the white man’s religion.” If you know someone who believes themselves to be a Hebrew Israelite or has now become a practitioner of African spirituality, this is the episode for you!
