What does God have to say about marriage and procreation? Why is it important? Check out part one! 

When is the last time you have considered your progress, or growth, as a believer? According to Phil. 2:12-16, we should be continually growing in Christ-likeness. But what standard should we use to evaluate growth? Maybe you have to ask yourself: Am I even growing?

Adopted from the book What is a Healthy Church Member? by Thabiti Anyabwile, this episode explores the difference between superficial growth and genuine growth.

One of the creation ordinances that has been overlooked in times past is that of sex and gender. In this episode, I discuss some of the reasons why it was formerly overlooked and why we can't overlook it any longer. You'll also learn: 

Biblical definition of "sex" and "gender".

What it means to be "binary" and "non-binary" and how these terms came about. 

The implications of affirming someone's gender identity. 

Have you heard of the creation ordinances? If not, this series is for you! And if you have, then you should listen and learn more about them and how they effect every aspect of life. May God be glorified for His marvelous design!

When one considers the political, social, and economic turmoil facing America at the present time, a natural question to ask is, "Is America experiencing the judgment of God?" 

Over the last 50 years, many have proclaimed that "the time is right!" for America's judgment, yet the nation still stands. 

How do we interpret the present situation from a theological perspective? 

This episode provides a primer to help you begin thinking about these matters. If you have a follow up question or comment, please let me know...I'd love to address it on a future episode!

How do we wrap our minds around the tragedies and sufferings that we see in our world? How do we think when we know a tragic situation was preventable, but God allowed it to occur anyway? 

The suffering of the innocent is one of the most challenging issues to think through; here are a couple of "quick-hit" insights that should point you on the right path. 

How do you deal with a personal tragedy? There are two parties involved in who need advice: 1) the individual who is suffering and 2) those comforting the individual. 

May you gain insight from the truths shared in this episode! 

 

Today, I discuss the fallacy of the current clamor in our culture for justice. Many believe that there isn't enough "justice" being done in our society and they wonder, "When will we receive justice?" If we consider this question from a theological/biblical perspective, those who ask this question might reconsider! As followers of Christ, we must be willing to ask those in society hard questions - I share some at the end of the episode. 

Watching the narrative that is occurring amongst Christians and as Christians relate to our culture has caused me frustration because many people are trying to accommodate Jesus' teaching to the current "moral" trends in our culture. ("Moral" being in quotes because our culture defining evil as good and good evil). This is my rant against the misuse and misappropriation of Jesus' teachings.
