    Speaking in Tongues: Revealing the Mystery | Behind The Mike Podcast | Dave, Dewey & Mike

    Have you ever witnessed the mysterious practice of speaking in tongues and pondered its significance for modern believers? Together with my co-hosts Dave and Dewey, and drawing from my Assemblies of God roots, we tackle the profound nuances of this spiritual expression. We dissect the weighty claim that speaking in tongues is a benchmark of Holy Spirit baptism and how this shapes one's perception of spiritual fulfillment. Through a tapestry of personal anecdotes and theological musings, this conversation seeks to unravel whether this charismatic phenomenon is a hallmark of divine intimacy or a misinterpreted aspect of faith.

    The episode wades through the scriptural sea of speaking in tongues, scrutinizing its original context during Pentecost and Cornelius's encounter, and juxtaposing it against the present-day practice. We shed light on the implications of such experiences and why they should never overshadow the foundation of scriptural truth. As we thread these discussions, the emphasis is on embracing the Gospel's inclusivity and fostering unity amidst Christianity's rich tapestry of worship expression. We invite you to join in on this exploration, share your insights, and enrich the discourse with your unique perspective as we navigate these complex and deeply spiritual waters.

    #100 - Exploring the Intersection of Christian Faith and Politics

    Have you ever found yourself questioning the intersection of religion and politics, particularly with a focus on Christian involvement? In any political climate, these hot button topics sure can get your blood boiling! Join us as we traverse the bumpy terrain of personal political moments, including the time one of us watched Obama's inauguration in a Muslim tea shop in Pakistan, or those instances when we caught a glimpse of presidents in our humble hometowns. 

    But we won't stop there. Prepare to dust off your thinking cap as we dive into strategy-based voting versus issue-based. We've got our pulse on the dangers of blindly following a political personality or movement, and we're ready to unpack it all. Further, we'll tackle Christian nationalism and its complexities. We can promise you one thing - this isn't a binary conversation. We firmly believe in grounding our political actions in God's word, and we invite you to explore what that means with us.

    Lastly, we’ll bring it all home as we shift our lens to the grassroots level of political engagement. We challenge you to consider stewarding your family and your local community before global issues. Let's reframe our political lives, keeping in mind that our trust must lie in God's sovereignty, not in political leaders. From suffering to faith, and how these aspects can intensify our connection with God, to building God's Kingdom – it's all up for discussion. So, are you ready to engage in a thought-provoking, faith-based discussion? Then strap in, because this episode is sure to give you some food for thought!

Mike and guests truly point us to Hope. I enjoy the shows and know hope comes through the work of Jesus in any life and situation or circumstance. Listen and find Hope.

Such a source of encouragement and hope! A must listen to!

I have recently begun listening to “Conversations of Hope” and have been so encouraged listening to these stories and testimonies of how God is working. Mike does a fantastic job giving details about his guests and helping the audience feel connected to the story being shared. He asks well-thought out questions and allows his guests plenty of time to talk about their experiences. I very much appreciate and look forward to listening! Thank you, Mike, for all the time and energy you put into making these podcasts. I especially appreciated the most recent podcast where you and Tammy shared your struggles and triumphs with infertility.

Topics That Matter

Every episode touches on a topic that is relevant but brings a biblical worldview. I love the great variety of guests each week too!
