There are many different brands of Christianity today - some that focus primarily on the feeling of the freedom of the teachings of Jesus and the heart relationships, some that focus primarily on the literal and often harshly interpreted words of Jesus and then there are the many variations in between.

This special podcast discusses several "Be Ye Separate" lessons about choice and taking a different path in life by being focused on our primary allegiances.  We talk about keeping our hearts with diligence while interacting with the world and keeping rationalizations to a minimum, especially when the heart wants what the heart wants when faced with not being equally yoked.
