Ep. 27 | Truth Set Free

June 25th, 2019

How Christians manipulate the truth to create false ideas about what actions Jesus would and wouldn't approve.

Satan's role in manipulating truth and manipulating Christians to blend truth and lies. 

Truth detached from a fixed point - a figurative "mooring" to keep it from floating away. 

Ep. 26 | The True-Truth

June 18th, 2019

The concept of "true-truth" was introduced and explained by Francis Schaeffer in the 1970s to provide a foundation for discussion and dialogue with the "modern-man." Today, we recognize that the "modern-man" is really an individual who has been shaped by post-modern philosophies, especially deconstructionism and Hegelian dialectic theory. 

How do these philosophies play out in culture? Most people can't identify the big idea, but they can see the end result - current marketing campaigns such as "You do you" are a perfect example of deconstructionism. 

What does this mean for the average believer or unbeliever? The discussion focuses on presuppositions and truth foundations and their practice in everyday life. 

Ep. 25 | Biblical Self Evaluation

June 11th, 2019

A discussion on one of the hardest things to do honesty: turn the spotlight on yourself. Not in a morbid way, but in a true sense, with the Word of God as the measuring stick and evaluation tool. 

Ep. 24 | The Doctrine of Money, pt. 4

May 28th, 2019

Ep. 23 | The Doctrine of Money, pt. 3

May 21st, 2019

Two key concepts: 

1) Who owns all the "money" in the world and how does He distribute the wealth?

2) How does your attitude toward money set the course for your life? 

Ep. 22 | The Doctrine of Money, pt. 2

May 13th, 2019

What is a doctrine? Why don't we think about money in terms of a "doctrine" delivered by God to mankind? 

There are foundational truths from the Word of God that establish the framework of how we think about money - what are these truths? 

The biggest misconception Christians have in thinking about money and service to Christ. 

Ep. 21 | The Doctrine of Money, pt. 1

May 6th, 2019

What is the "doctrine of money?"

How did Jesus use the example of the unrighteous manager to teach believers about Biblical stewardship? 

What is Biblical stewardship and where/how did it originate?

Ep. 19 | What Does It Mean When God Hardens Someone’s Heart?

April 15th, 2019

One of the most challenging aspects of theology to understand is a concept found both in Exodus and in Romans: What does it mean when God says He hardens someone's heart? 

In this episode, I spend time developing the Biblical terms "heart" and "harden" and then discuss both human responsibility and the divine will in the process of hardening. 

After completing this study, what struck me most is this: It's not a wonder that God hardens anyone's heart, but rather, that God has mercy on anyone, for our hearts are desperately wicked and deserving of all the punishment God could mete out!
