Ep. 28 – Discovering and Guarding Our Purpose

A plethora of content exists today regarding purpose. Discovering one’s purpose in life can take time and requires a sacrificial amount of searching. As Christ followers, we know our purpose is to glorify God, but how focused are we really on glorifying God at all times? On this episode, we are taking a look at an article by John MacArthur, titled, “How Do I Glorify God in the Gray Areas?,” found on Grace to You.

Ep. 26 – Loving Your Neighbor Through Politics

Another season of political discussions is here with the help of the 2020 Democratic primaries.

David Closson composed an excellent article for ERLC, titled, “4 Reasons Christians Should Care About Politics,” and it’s worth unpacking together.

Ep. 25 – Are Christians Allowed to Be Financially Rich?

Hinn. Let’s walk through the post together and seek the truth.

Ep. 22 – What Happened to Convincing One Another?

In order to move forward together, we need to create a healthier environment for dialogue. We shouldn’t retreat to those who agree with us and shame those who disagree.

Ep. 21 – Humbly Examine Your Calling

A discussion about God’s “calling” can provide beneficial guidance for us as we seek to follow Christ. Many look to pillars of the faith, such as the Apostle Paul, and wonder when their own special calling from God is going to come. Is Paul’s calling experience the standard? Greg Handley composed an article for IMB, titled, “Let’s Rethink Our Language of ‘Calling’,” where he provides wise counsel about God’s calling. 

Ep. 20 – Seeking Truth in a ‘Post-Truth’ Culture

The culture and Christ seem to collide often. Many today operate with a postmodern mindset. Do we get to determine what truth is? Can something be true for me, yet false for others?

Ep. 11 – Honor Those Who Don’t Deserve It

There’s a surprising number of people who aren’t afraid to withhold honor towards those in authority.

On this episode, we also looked at an article by Dr. Roger Barrier for Crosswalk, titled, “Should I Honor a Parent Who Doesn’t Deserve It?” Let’s dive into the discussion and seek the truth together.

Ep. 10 – Jesus’ Twelve Disciples Were Probably Teenagers

Jesus launched his earthly ministry when he was thirty years old, but how old were the twelve disciples who followed him? Does the Bible say? Are there indicators from church history?
