    Jesus Personally Interprets Romans 7 for Winnie Banov!!

    In this episode, we look at a video from Georgian and Winnie Banov as they peddle Winnie’s new book claiming that she has the right interpretation of Romans 7.

    My apologies up front for the echo in the Banov portion of the video. I hope it’s not too distracting!

    Is Jeremiah 29:11 About You?

    Is Jeremiah 29:11 About You?

    Jeremiah 29:11 is probably the most taken out of context verse in the entire Bible. Most Christians who quote that verse remove it from it’s intended meaning, and make it all about them. In this video, I am joined by my brother Steven Long to help me put this verse back into its context and talk about a new blog he created called “Rightly Dividing.” You can find his new site here, https://rightlydividing.net/.

    Here is another good post that talks about this verse from Steve Kozar over at “The Messed Up Church,” https://www.themessedupchurch.com/blog/a-thank-you-note-from-the-evangelical-industrial-complex-3l2xe?rq=Evangelical%20industrial.

    No Miracles Without Cash!

    No Miracles Without Cash!

    In this video, I talk about an early 20th-century faith healer that many may have never heard of. While he wasn't very influential in the early Pentecostal movement, he was influenced by some of its early leaders, especially Charles Fox Parham. His name was Finis E, Yoakum. The feature article that I discuss is a 1909 article from the Los Angeles Times called "No Miracles Without Cash."
    Here is the YouTube video so you can see the article.
