    Binmin Podcast Ep. 27: Loneliness | When Life Is Tough

    Loneliness is feeling alone, isolated, helpless, and cut off from others. Biblically dealing with loneliness requires focusing on our relationship with God, our Christian community, and serving others. Only a genuine relationship with Jesus cures loneliness.

    00:00 - Introduction

    1:04 - LONELINESS IS FEELING ALONE, ISOLATED, HELPLESS, AND CUT OFF FROM OTHERS.

    Everyone feels lonely at some point in their lives. GOD CREATED HUMANS IN HIS IMAGE AND TO BE IN RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM AND OTHER HUMANS.

    1:40 - SYMPTOMS: Loneliness is marked by sadness, longing, and a yearning to be with someone. CAN LEAD TO: Anger, irritability, clinical depression, and suicidal feelings.

    2:38 - LONELINESS IS NOT THE SAME AS BEING ALONE. A PERSON CAN BE ALONE WITHOUT BEING LONELY OR FEEL LONELY IN A CROWDED ROOM. FEELINGS OF LONELINESS CAN LEAD TO TEMPTATIONS.

    4:50 - SOLITUDE REDUCES THE “NOISE” AND BUSYNESS OF LIFE. SOLITUDE CLARIFIES OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD AND NOURISHES OUR SPIRITUAL LIFE.

    6:34 - SEVERAL GROUPS ARE AT RISK FOR LONELINESS

    10:20 - WHAT ARE SOME WRONG WAYS OF DEALING WITH LONELINESS? “Self-medicating” through: Sexual sin, purchasing “things” to give yourself an emotional lift, substance abuse

    13:41 - HOW CAN WE HANDLE LONELINESS BIBLICALLY? JESUS UNDERSTANDS OUR FEELINGS OF LONELINESS (HEB. 4:15). On the cross, Jesus felt the ultimate loneliness: “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Matt. 27:46). Because of Jesus’ death, we can experience a relationship with God through the indwelling Holy Spirit!

    15:48 - CAN ANY GOOD COME OUT OF OUR LONELINESS? LONELINESS FORCES US TO HAVE AN UTTER DEPENDENCY ON GOD FOR EVERYTHING. Corrie Ten Boom - “You can never learn that Christ is all you need until Christ is all you have.”

    17:33 - HOW CAN WE DEAL WITH LONELINESS BIBLICALLY? FOCUS ON 3 RELATIONSHIPS:

    18:38 - 1. GOD: through prayer and Scripture

    19:54 - 2. COMMUNITY: God made you for intimacy with other humans and a need to feel like you belong somewhere.

    21:18 - 3. SERVING: Re-channels your self-focus onto others.

    23:30 - MAKE A PLAN: Planning is helpful if you see times you know you will be lonely.

    24:48 - SO WHAT? EMBRACE YOUR LONELINESS AS AN ELEMENT OF YOUR SPIRITUAL MATURITY. CONCENTRATE ON TODAY. Whatever the cause of loneliness, for the Christian, the cure is always the same—the comforting fellowship of Christ.

    28:36 - NEXT STEP: MAKE A PLAN!

    29:38 - Thank you and wrap up

    Binmin Podcast Ep. 26: Envy & Jealousy | When Life Is Tough

    Binmin Podcast Ep. 26: Envy & Jealousy | When Life Is Tough

    JOIN the NEWSLETTER at https://binmin.org

    Envy and jealousy are rebellions against God’s provision and the opposite of love. We must transform our minds by “putting off” envy or jealousy and “putting on” being satisfied with God’s provisions for our life through three steps.

    *NOTE: We had some issues with Bob’s mic on this episode. Thanks for bearing with us!

    00:00 - Introductions

    1:20: - WHAT ARE THE DEFINITIONS OF ENVY AND JEALOUSY?

    -ENVY WANTS WHAT SOMEONE ELSE HAS.

    -JEALOUSY IS A FEAR THAT ANOTHER PERSON WILL TAKE AWAY WHAT IS YOURS.

    -Both are self-centered, unloving, and destructive emotional problems

    2:05 - WHAT CAUSES ENVY AND JEALOUSY? Pride, comparing yourself to others, putting too much value on worldly success

    3:46 - WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF ENVY AND JEALOUSY? Disappointment with God’s provision, lack of contentment, resentment toward another’s success,  hatred

    5:32 - WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GOD’S JEALOUSY AND HUMAN JEALOUSY?

    -God is the creator and owner of everything.

    -His creations should worship and serve him alone.

    -God is right to be jealous when his people worship idols instead of giving him the worship that belongs to Him alone.

    7:08 - ENVY IS ULTIMATELY A REBELLION AGAINST GOD’S PROVISION AND THE OPPOSITE OF LOVE.

    -Love rejoices over the good of another (Luke 12:15)

    -Envy can be overcome by choosing to celebrate another person’s good fortune and speaking of their good qualities.

    8:36 - OVERCOMING ENVY AND JEALOUSY MEANS TRANSFORMING YOUR MIND.

    - By “putting off” envy or jealousy…

    -And “putting on” satisfaction with God’s provisions for your life.

    9:55 - Remember: “Even the people that have something you want want something too!”

    12:18 - THREE STEPS TO OVERCOME ENVY OR JEALOUSY:

    1. LOVE: UNDERSTANDING GOD’S LOVE FOR US

    -Scripture helps us understand that God loves us, so we don’t need to seek love in other things.

    14:39 - 2. CONTENTMENT

    If you are not content, you are questioning the sovereignty of God.

    DEVELOP A LIFESTYLE OF GRATITUDE AND WORSHIP

    16:59 - 3. LOVE: LOVE OTHERS AS GOD LOVES YOU

    18:24 - WHAT’S YOUR NEXT STEP? PRAY FOR SOMEONE WHO YOU ARE JEALOUS OF!

    19:37 - Thank you and wrap up.

    Binmin Podcast Ep. 25: Suffering | When Life Is Tough

    Binmin Podcast Ep. 25: Suffering | When Life Is Tough

    Everyone suffers at some time in their lives. The correct response to suffering is turning towards God. Only Christianity adequately explains and makes sense of both the cause and cure for evil and suffering in our world. Jesus suffered to provide us with the possibility of eternal salvation.

    0:00 - Introductions

    1:11 - SUFFERING IS BEARING PAIN, INCONVENIENCE, LOSS, INJURY. NO OTHER RELIGION DEALS WITH SUFFERING BETTER THAN CHRISTIANITY.

    1:53 - WHAT ARE SOME CAUSES FOR SUFFERING?

    -Our sin and failure

    -Other people’s sins

    -Forces outside of our control (“natural evil”)

    -Christian persecution

    3:33- REGARDLESS OF THE SOURCE OF SUFFERING, NOTHING HAPPENS OUTSIDE OF GOD’S SOVEREIGN CONTROL

    3:54 – HOW DO PEOPLE RESPOND TO TRIALS? Blame, deny, self-pity, embittered.

    5:08- THE CORRECT RESPONSE TO SUFFERING IS TRUSTING AND YIELDING TO GOD (JAMES 1:2-4). Asking God to walk with us (Ps. 34:18).

    6:50- WHY WOULD A GOOD GOD ALLOW SUFFERING IN THE WORLD WHICH HE CREATED? CRITICS OF CHRISTIANITY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR GIVING US A “BETTER” ANSWER THAN OURS. CHRISTIANITY EXPLAINS BOTH THE CAUSE AND THE CURE FOR EVIL AND SUFFERING. SUFFERING DOES NOT MEAN THAT GOD DOES NOT LOVE US!

    9:25 - JESUS KNOWS SUFFERING FIRSTHAND

    -He was crucified for us so we can have eternal life with him.

    10:46 - HOW CAN ANY “GOOD” COME FROM OUR SUFFERING?  “We can ignore even pleasure. But pain insists upon being attended to. God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: it is his megaphone to rouse a deaf world.” ― C.S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain. GOD ALLOWS SUFFERING TO STRENGTHEN OUR FAITH AND CONFORM US TO BE MORE LIKE JESUS.

    14:11 - WHAT RESOURCES DO WE HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE SUFFERING IN OUR LIVES? 1. PRAYER: laments, confession, forgiving.

    15:53 - 2. THE BIBLE: saturating your heart with the Word will help control your emotions. Memorize three verses about suffering: Romans 8:28, James 1:2–4, and 1 Peter 1:6–9

    16:59 - 3. THE HOLY SPIRIT: the third Person of the Godhead. Romans 8:26, Romans 8:18.

    18:56 - 4. OTHER PEOPLE (Gal. 6:2).

    20:03 - 5. STORIES OF SUFFERING: other Christians have suffered well (1 Pet. 5:9-10; 4:12-13).

    21:58 - SO WHAT? 1. Choose joy. 2. Have an eternal perspective. 3. The Christian God knows firsthand about suffering (Heb. 4:15).

    25:19 - NEXT STEP: READ ROMANS 8. Choose one truth to pray about or share with a friend!

    26:26 - Thank you and wrap-up
