    267 - How Can God be Fully Man? (w/ Dr. Sam Youngs)

    267 - How Can God be Fully Man? (w/ Dr. Sam Youngs)

    At the top of this episode, John Mark McMillan, Robbie Madison and Joey Svendsen give some examples of miracles in their lives they are convinced was the result of God’s supernatural hand. Oh, and Joey doesn’t know what the “WAP” is and John Mark and Robbie are uncomfortable to disclose this on the air. MAIN INTERVIEW:If Jesus is fully God, we should worship Him. If he is fully man, we’d be sinning to worship him. Fully man, fully God? How in the world does this work? There’s many verses pointing to the inferiority Jesus had with the Father (John 5:30, Matthew 24:36). But isn't Jesus fully God? In this episode, we slow down to process this with author of "The Way of the Kenotic Christ," Dr. Sam Youngs, and focus on the “fully man” part. What are the implications of Jesus “fully emptying himself" (Philippians 2:5-8)?Dr. Young has author copies of his book available for $16 apiece. If you email him (sam@missionchattanooga.org), you can arrange to pay by Venmo and Dr. Young will send you a copy of the book. Quantities at this price are limited. If you'd prefer to purchase the book online, please visit either the publisher's page or you can buy it from Amazon.John Mark McMillan: @johnmarkmc https://www.johnmarkmcmillan.com/Robbie Madison: @robbiemadisonmusic http://robbiemadison.com/ Instagram account: www.instagram.com/PWNApod: Current DonorSee: https://donorsee.com/pwnahelps: Get notifications each time we start raising money to get more information on our current opportunity to “save the day” for team humanity.

    266 - My Depressive Episode 3 (w/ Chip Judd): Anxiety and How it All Began

    266 - My Depressive Episode 3 (w/ Chip Judd): Anxiety and How it All Began

    The beginning of Joey's crash was preceded by an onslaught of extreme anxiety at a whole new level he'd never experienced. Pricilla was in New York City when it happened while Joey was at home solo parenting. Our friend Chip Judd (pastor and therapist), one of the few who walked this path with us up close and personal, shares his expertise of physiological depression, reflects on what he saw and experienced with Joey and Pricilla during this dark season, and touches on the need for the mental health field to humanize people. Chip sees this depressive episode as something out of Joey's control (with one exception), Pricilla describes the lack of dignity given to the mentally ill and Joey reflects on his lifestyle and whether that was the culprit of his downward spiral. Series Description: This time a little over a year ago, our world was turned upside down by Joey’s mental health crash. We want to tell our story of suffering as well as the beauty amidst the suffering. From Joey’s week-stay at the hospital to our kids learning first-hand about mental illness, to natural worries of how long this all would last, we had a family that surrounded us, hope that filled my heart, a new closeness and a new beginning – Pricilla Instagram account: www.instagram.com/PWNApod: Current DonorSee: https://donorsee.com/pwnahelps: Join us as a patron! https://www.patreon.com/pwnapod: Join the discussion: https://www.facebook.com/groups/PWNAtalkhttps://twitter.com/pwnapod https://twitter.com/joeysvendsen https://www.facebook.com/PWNApod CALL 507-403-PWNA (7962): Questions, Comments, Feedback, Pushback, frustration?

    265- Humanizing Others is The Answer (w/ Jay Bakker)

    265- Humanizing Others is The Answer (w/ Jay Bakker)

    There's two groups of people on both sides of the fence yelling from a posture of legalism; and it's killing us all. But people all share this common ground: we all need forgiveness because we all “know not what we're doing." Jay outlines the foundation all humans can stand on to offer love and forbearance to everyone, including people on “the other side” of theology and politics. He also reflects on his spiritual journey and shares why he feels increasingly distant from polarizing, extreme forms of progressive Christianity. Raised by Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker, the most successful televangelist duo in the history of the world, Jay tells a bit of his story on how his beliefs and lifestyle eventually deviated from his fundamentalist upbringing, causing him to question whether he could even remain a Christian. BadChristian, David Bazan’s faith (like it’s any of our business), and atonement theory are other topics discussed as Jay and Joey talk a little about a lot. At top of the episode, John Mark McMillan, Robbie Madison and Joey talk "celebrity culture" in the church.

    264 - Depression in a Marriage w/ Propaganda and Alma

    264 - Depression in a Marriage w/ Propaganda and Alma

    Wife and husband duo Jason Petty (Propaganda) and Dr. Alma Zaragoza-Petty sit with Pricilla and Joey to reflect on mental illness and the heaviness/pain it brings to a marriage. As Joey and Alma trade their “war stories,” Jason and Pricilla discuss the helplessness of not being able to “fix it” and the tension of providing love and support while not carrying the pain that isn’t theirs to carry. Riding the waves of mental illness that your spouse is on isn’t healthy for either partner. Joey and Pricilla have begun sharing their story of last year when Joey’s mental health crashed at a crisis level. You can follow their story by listening to episodes 258 and 261. Part 3 of their story will be released on 11/16.

Mystic Olive ,

Episode 1

Because I like to start at the beginning! Just listened to the first episode on whether christians can be universalists and love the format. I think I will be a firm fan. It was certainly quite a topic to start with! I would have liked to hear more though from the other side of the argument than that espoused by Dan Koch (who I do not agree with). I hope there will be more balance in future episodes.
