If you listen to our podcast, you may have noticed that we always start by talking about some of the nerdiest topics we can think of. Believe it or not, there are actually multiple reasons for this!
The first reason is simply because we like nerd stuff! Who doesn't like debating which Star Wars movie is the best, what Marvel got wrong in the latest Avengers movie, or what show from our childhood is the king of Saturday morning cartoons?!
The second reason, however, is a little bit deeper. I believe that there is often a universal feeling we all experience at least once in our lives; a feeling of not belonging. For many, video games, board games, tv shows, and movies is a way for us to escape the sense that we don't quite fit in with those around us. It is a way to put the hurts, pains, and struggles of every day life out of our minds, even if it is just for a moment.
All of us involved with the Truth for Doubt ministry have been there, at one time or another. We firmly believe that there are many who are still searching for meaning and belonging in these "nerdy" avenues, and we firmly believe that our own enjoyment of these nerdy things can be a connection point to those who wouldn't typically listen to a theology or apologetics podcast! It is our prayer that our fascination with all things nerd can help us share that Jesus is the only way to find true belonging and purpose.
