Would We All Be Muslims?! — Ask Anabaptist Perspectives Anything Ep. 38

Paul writes: “The problem is that if medieval westerners were Anabaptists, we would all be Muslims. Do you like this outcome or do you recognize a problem in your ideology?”

Paul was commenting on Episode 163 “Tragedy in Church History”
