Two serious questions. Take a listen to this Wretched Radio (former Way of the Master) segment, which is Todd Friel’s take on expository preaching on Good Friday.

1) Is there anything Todd Friel gets wrong about Christianity in this segment?; and

2) Can you understand why this comes off as, well, a little nuts to those of us who aren’t believers?

If the answer to (1) is “yes,” then I have some follow-up questions.
