The Trinity, Modalism, and ESS
In this episode we look at the importance of the Trinity to Christianity and why this doctrine is fundamental to our understanding of the gospel.
We touch on some church history (the Nicene creed and early church fathers) then look at two errant teachings of the Trinity: modalism and eternal subordination of the Son.
Two Views on Tithing
Should Christians tithe?
Why or why not?
We explore the biblical proofs for tithing and how different groups of Christians interpret it, including how Josh and Phy have viewed giving from their days as college students to today.

Balanced & Sound Theology!
The Holy Spirit had been convicting me of legalism but knowing how to live a biblically glorifying life was hard for me to work out how that’s meant to look. Phylicia and her podcast have helped me discover what it means to live a balanced biblical God glorifying life. I’m so thankful I found her podcast & instagram!
Phylicia is a great & gracious speaker. I have loved listening to her podcast as I find it hard to find biblically solid teachers who are not reformed. Phylicia is great at explaining biblical teachings and does not shy away from the truth. I recommend listening to this if you want to go beyond surface level faith.
