    73. "Everything Happens for a Reason"

    73. "Everything Happens for a Reason"

    In this final episode of the "Coffee Cup Theology" series, Joey, Jeff and Lorri discuss the phrase, "Everything happens for a reason." This statement, while true, tends to be used when we want to skip over the discomfort of a painful situation. The team encourages us instead to sit in the uncomfortable tension when we can't answer the question, "why?".

    72. "Well, that's Karma"

    72. "Well, that's Karma"

    On today's episode of the EQUIP Roundtable Podcast, Joey, Jeff and Lorri discuss the idea of Karma and the belief that we all get what's coming to us based on what we've done. While there are threads of truth in this idea, it is ultimately problematic from a biblical perspective because, as recipients of God's free gift of grace, Christ-followers thankfully get what we don't deserve.

    71. "Don't Judge Me"

    71. "Don't Judge Me"

    On today's episode of the EQUIP Roundtable Podcast, Joey, Jeff and Lorri discusses the phrase, “Don't judge me”. While this idea is widely accepted by the world, it can be confusing for Christ-followers. We see some Scriptures agreeing that we should not judge, while others give us guidelines for when and how we should judge. So what does it mean to judge? And when and how should we do it? The team will discuss these ideas and more on today's show.

    70. Theology & Culture with Dr. Glenn Kreider

    This week we're taking a break from our usual format to invite a special guest to the show. Dr. Glenn Kreider is the Acting Chair and Professor of Theological Studies at Dallas Theological Seminary, and he teaches and writes about how faith and culture intersect. Today he and the team discuss how we’re to learn and study theology in community together, and he’ll give us some of his thoughts about the Coffee Cup Theology statements we’ve discussed so far this season.

    69. "Preach the Gospel & If Necessary, Use Words"

    69. "Preach the Gospel & If Necessary, Use Words"

    On today's episode of the EQUIP Roundtable Podcast, the team discusses the phrase, “Preach the gospel at all times, and if necessary, use words”. While its so important for Christ followers to live out what we believe, buying into this idea may cause us to miss out on our God-given responsibility and privilege to share the good news of the gospel with those around us.  So listen in as the team talks about why it's so important to both live out the gospel and share the gospel verbally with others.

    68. "God Won't Give You More Than You Can Handle"

    68. "God Won't Give You More Than You Can Handle"

    On today's episode of the EQUIP Roundtable Podcast, the team discusses the phrase, “God won’t give you more than you can handle”. This phrase is often said with good intentions to comfort those who ares suffering. But what we find in Scripture is that God will allow us to face more than we can handle on our own, so that we will walk in greater dependence on Him. So whether you’re currently experiencing a season of hardship, or if life is good, this episode has some great truth about living in daily dependence on the One who holds everything in His hands.
