The Antithesis

The Antithesis exists to clarify the difference Christianity and every system, worldview, and religion. Armed with a big vision of God and a passion for divine grace, we help listeners to understand sound biblical doctrine and to distinguish it from ideologies that seek to take us captive (Colossians 2:8). Our burden is defensive but also offensive: we seek the destruction of intellectual and behavioral strongholds in order that we would taste the joy of a mind set free by Christ (2 Corinthians 10:3-6). Ultimately, The Antithesis seeks to aid in theological discipleship; our goal is to set the heart and mind on fire for God, and to stand immoveable in a chaotic and fallen realm.
