144: Christian Nationalism? A Balanced Take
Biblical or Not? // S11E11 When there is no single definition and anyone voting in alignment with their faith can be labeled a Christian Nationalist…The real question remains: is it even biblical? Looking at definitions and real world examples, we assess how various aspects of the view hold up against basic Bible principles. Verses from...

143: Men in the Church with Roy Smith
Roles // S11E10 What is going on with men in the church? While the women of the church seem to get involved with one another so easily, the men don’t. Women’s ministries and meetings are frequent and praised. Men’s ministry is often quite infrequent and tucked in a corner. This needs to change… however, men...

142: Materialism, Consumerism, and the American Dream with Author/Coach Tim Winders
God > Things // S11E09 What’s more important to you? God, or your money? God, or your possessions God, or anything you could ever have? The truth is always God. However, it’s easy to say, but hard to do. If we are not careful these mindsets may sneak into us and distort the purpose of...

141: Thoughts on Prayers
In Contact With God // S11E07 Our prayer is vital! And not only our personal prayers, but also the corporate prayers of the body of Christ.

140: Leaving Your First Love
Losing Our First Love // S11E06 We have two options, either we believe God, or we believe the World. We love God, or we love the World. Yet God is so much greater! Why are we so quick to fall for these things that are opposed to Him? And, the more we let little lies,...

139: Spiritual Wisdom in the Church
Attached to the Word // S11E05 We need wisdom. Not the wisdom of this world. Godly wisdom. And we must learn to act on our wisdom. Solomon was granted by God to be the wisest man in the world, and yet he ended up committing horrible sins, no longer acting on the wisdom he had...

138: Theology Wars with Philippe Serraji
STAND DOWN // S11E04 What are we fighting for? The Lord, or our opinions? When the study of God becomes more important than our pursuit of Him, we find division and distrust among brothers and sisters in Christ. We learn much from Scripture, but Spirit-filled believers seem to still come to varying conclusions that often...

137: Meeting the Needs of the Saints with Matt & Lia McCabe
Within the Church // S11E03 How well are we, and our churches as a whole prepared to provide for the needs of those inside the church? Whether, it’s kids (or adults!) with special needs, or any other need one could think of! First, we must have the motivations to want to help others: love, compassion,...

136: Separation of Church and Self with Israel Wayne
God over All // S11E02 Do you live one life, all under His rule? Or are having you been, consciously, or unconsciously, compartmentalizing. Giving you Sunday’s and maybe your Wednesday bible study to God, but shutting Him out of your daily life. God has given us everything… therefore nothing is our own. Everything is His!...

135: The Good, Bad, and Ugly
Breaks and Builds // S11E01 He is molding us. He is faithful to complete the work in us. Though the conviction from His word, His breaking process, may not feel comforting in the moment, we are being broken down to be built up more like Him. To be sanctified, in the likeness of the Son....

133: Why Christians Share the Gospel with Pastor Bailey Norman
Reasons to Go! // S10E12 Why do we go? Why do we share our faith? Each and every person on this earth is going one of two places for eternity. Those saved by Christ to eternal glory, but those not, to eternal judgement. We who have been saved by Christ know our destination, and we...

God has a plan // S10E11 We are commanded to go. To go and share His news, to love, and to care for people. Not to just choose one part that you like most, but to do all He has commanded. And once we do we find out how intertwined they are. If we really...
