Episode 202: It's the End of the World as We Know It! Coronavirus, Mass Hysteria, and What Jesus Would Have Us Do About It!

In this episode, Ben, Luke, and David discuss the Coronavirus. Is it bad? If so, how bad? They discuss the media, globalism, and our tendency to panic as a culture. Most importantly, they ask, "how should a follower of Jesus respond to global events, like pandemics? Could this be a healthy reminder of our dependence on God? Can this be an opportunity for the Gospel?" 

Davids reminisces of Luke's former band, 'Zombie Apocalypse Boy Rangers', and much more on this week's P&I!
