    E235: A Conversation about the Lord's Church

    E235: A Conversation about the Lord's Church

    I have a second podcast called, "After the Amen" with Myles Hester. We recently recorded this episode and I wanted to share this with my I Can Do Platform. Myles is doing great work at the West Main Church of Christ in Lewisville Texas, where we both work together. You can find his blog at https://willingandworking.wordpress.com/



    Takeaways

    When asked about the kind of church one attends, it is important to define the terms and provide answers based on scripture.

    The New Testament, particularly Acts chapter 2, provides a clear description of the characteristics of the church that Jesus established.

    The first-century church emphasized worship, fellowship, love, and the message of salvation.

    Having conversations about the church and providing truthful answers based on scripture is valuable and helps others understand the truth.

    00:00 Defining the Church

    06:45 The Danger of False Doctrine

    11:32 Emphasizing Worship and Emotion

    24:59 Having Conversations about the Church

    E234: Ganga Rivera on Life, Ultraspeaking, and Personal Growth

    E234: Ganga Rivera on Life, Ultraspeaking, and Personal Growth

    Takeaways

    Ganga's journey from Russia to Florida started with her marriage to her husband, whom she met while translating for a yoga teacher in India.

    Yoga has been a significant part of Ganga's life, providing her with a pure and transcendent experience.

    Ganga struggled with religion, particularly Orthodox Christianity, and found solace in yoga and the practice of removing something extra rather than fixing things.

    Her transformation in speaking has allowed her to become more comfortable expressing herself, although she still feels some butterflies in certain situations. Exploring new interests and practices, such as yoga, can lead to personal growth and self-discovery.

    Accepting oneself and facing emotions are crucial steps in overcoming challenges and addictions.

    Recovery is not about achieving perfection, but rather learning to manage behaviors and navigate life's messiness.

    Grace and self-agency both play a role in personal growth and transformation.

    Takeaways

    Inflammation is the root mechanism for all disease.

    Wheat activates toll-like receptors in the gut, leading to leaky gut and inflammation.

    Testing for wheat sensitivity can help identify the source of inflammation and guide treatment.

    Environmental toxins, such as mold and indoor air pollution, can also contribute to health issues. Environmental toxins, such as mold and chemicals in personal care products, can have a significant impact on health, including the development of Alzheimer's disease.

    Mercury fillings and certain triggers, like gluten, can contribute to inflammation and various health conditions, including epilepsy and schizophrenia.

    Taking action to reduce exposure to toxins, such as choosing natural personal care products and being mindful of environmental factors, can help improve overall health.

    Genetic variations can influence how individuals respond to certain substances, such as caffeine, highlighting the importance of personalized approaches to health.

    Fasting and adopting a gluten-free Mediterranean diet are recommended strategies for reducing inflammation and promoting overall well-being.

    E232: Resisting Temptation

    E232: Resisting Temptation

    Takeaways

    Man is capable of resisting temptation, as demonstrated by examples from the Bible.

    Temptation itself is not sinful; it is how we respond to it that matters.

    Jesus, as our high priest, understands our struggles with temptation and provides strength and guidance.

    To resist temptation, we should flee from it and set ourselves up for success. Set yourself up for success by fleeing from temptation and turning to God.

    Recognize that even strong individuals can fall if not careful.

    Take extreme measures to overcome sexual temptations, such as deleting social media accounts and breaking off unhealthy relationships.

    Control your thoughts and actions, and seek help and accountability from fellow believers.

My sincere gratitude

Ben touches on topics that need to be discussed and not dismissed. I can relate and find myself wondering why I can’t let go so easily of something’s and other things I’m so ready to release. These podcasts are, to me I’m finding them refreshing and therapeutic. I say this as a person who is struggling with life, not my faith in God but daily life challenges. Anyone struggling please listen and find some hidden jewels in what is being shared. We all struggle but with podcasts like these and in God we can power through. Ben thank you for being my brother in Christ and my friend.

E199 : The Holy Spirit and Feelings

For those of you who desire solid biblical teaching on the Holy Spirit, this is a terrific lesson! Since this subject can be often confusing, I suggest listening to it a few times to absorb the verses referenced and the application. Ben is a wonderful teacher and preacher, highly recommended!

Miss_Whitney ,

Thank You

New subscriber here! I started my journey with this podcast yesterday. I listened to E197 & E198 on anxiety. I’ve been struggling with an episode of anxiety for weeks and the practical exercises Benjamin provided gave me relief by the end of the day.

I enjoyed the “Just for Today” segment so much that I’ve been digging around the house for my copy of the Dale Carnegie book so I can read it cover to cover.

I’m sure this won’t be the last time I’m faced with anxieties but at least I have new tools in my belt to help overcome and for that I’m thankful!
