As children get older, they naturally begin to see the opposite sex as attractive. But when is it okay to begin seeking out a relationship? Listen in as our pastors discuss their convictions on dating.
This week, we talk about an ongoing discussion that has continued through centuries. Hear from our Pastors as they weigh in on the topic of Calvinism.
This week on the 10-Minute Think Thru, we talk about whether or not we will recognize each other as the person we knew while on earth. Find out what we believe about relationships in heaven on this episode of the podcast.
It may sound crazy at first, but think about it: Is it possible that we're having too much fun? This is the issue we are addressing on this week's episode of the 10 Minute Think Thru.
Today, we've reached our 100th episode! We just want to say a quick "Thank you" to everyone who has tuned in and found this podcast helpful in their walk with Jesus. We hope for many more episodes to come!
If you've ever read Matthew chapter 12, you may have some concerns when Jesus talks about a sin that will not be forgiven. What is the unforgivable sin? Is it something you do or something you say? These questions actually come from a deeper question for the Christian- is it possible for us to disqualify ourselves from salvation? In this episode, we explain this passage of scripture and offer some encouragement to fellow believers.
It's a situation we've all experienced: a friend is engaging in sin and we know it, but we don't know how to respond. In this episode, we address a listener-summited question that we all can relate to.
Netflix's original show, 13 Reasons Why, has become wildly popular, especially among teenagers. Recently, a parent asked us our thoughts and whether we thought teens should be allowed to watch it.
Consuming alcohol is a practice that some Christians are divided on. Some say it can be ok, others say it's unwise and can hurt your witness, and others see drinking as an obvious sin. So in this episode, we consider what Scripture has to say about alcohol. Is it acceptable for any Christian to drink at all?
In our media-rich culture, it is completely logical that many wonderful, Christian men and women are well known by millions of fans. But what kind of questions should we have about who we follow, "Christian" or otherwise?
How do you show Christ to your non-believing family? How do you honor your mother and father when they discourage your faith? These are tough but familiar situations many Christians find themselves in every day. You desire for your family to know the Lord but they strongly oppose even your relationship to Jesus. We share our thoughts to this question sent to us anonymously.
In this episode, we consider the idea of marriage as the slow death of individual priority for the well-being of the relationship.
Bring up any hot-button topic and everyone is bound to have a passionate opinion. There is no denying it - nearly all of us are self-appointed "experts" on every complicated issue from immigration, to end-times prophecy, to predestination. Of course, thinking about those kinds of things is great! But rather than taking the posture of an eager student, most of us tend to speak with the confidence and passion befitting a well learned scholar, certain of our own rightness and astonished that anyone would disagree. In this episode, we discuss some of the ways this behavior shows up in our lives and how we can avoid becoming "commentariats."
These days, "Pro-Life" can mean a lot of things. It can include not only abortion, but issues such as the refugee debate, houselessness, healthcare, environmental care, and others. So if "Pro-Life" includes many different issues, how are we to distinguish perspective on any one of them? Can we be anti-abortion while landing on other "Pro-Life" issues on the same side as someone more liberal?
We've all heard the advice, "Do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life," but how wise is that counsel? Millions of Americans are unemployed by choice and studies have shown that the majority of those who are in the workforce are unhappy about their jobs. As our team has been listening to some thoughts about the decline of blue collar work in America by Dirty Jobs host, Mike Rowe, we decided to discuss the danger of "doing what you love."
