On Today in Church His-Story (Episode 31) we discuss what happened this day in the first century when John the Baptist was beheaded by Herod Antipas for standing against his adulterous marriage to Herodias. What do we learn about stances for truth in our own day from this? How can Christians be like John the Baptist–both gospel proclaimers and moral reformers? Are these two mutually exclusive? Where’s the balance? Find out my suggestions to these questions on this episode.
