Truth matters. It’s easy as Christians to interpret scripture based on our own experiences and feelings. Esther and Elizabeth, both avid Bible students, discuss a variety of issues and ask, ‘What does God actually say about this, and how does that practically impact our lives?’ Join them as they consider what it looks like to redefine life on God’s terms, and the freedom that follows when you’re rooted in the word, and powered by the Holy Spirit.
It Matters [Season 3.17]: Singleness Part 2: Marriage Idolatry
If you haven't checked out Singleness Part 1, scroll back to our very first season to find it there! In this latest installment of the singleness series, our story picks up at Elizabeth's new life stage: marriage! Listen in to hear Esther and Elizabeth tackle a major counterfeit doctrine in church culture: Idolatry of Marriage. What does scripture say about the gift of singleness? What about unwanted singleness? Elizabeth also shares her story about journeying towards marriage in her thirties with all sorts of learning lessons for both listeners who are in seasons of unwanted singleness, and married listeners who want to play a bigger role in reforming singleness and marriage theology in the church.

It Matters [Season 3.16]: The Reliability of Scripture
Can we trust the origins of the Bible? How can we know we have the whole, true Bible?

It Matters [Season 3.14] - Deconstruction, Christian Satire + “Woke Jesus.”
Get ready to deconstruct the deconstruction movement! On this episode we interviewed satirist, scholar and Bible teacher Gabriel Finochio of Theos University.
We discuss the origin of deconstruction (with a bit of philosophy and history along the way!), the difference between healthy doubts and destructive doubts… And how everything always comes back to the LOGOS (if you don’t know what that means- tune in!)
And since Gabriel is the mind and meme-creator behind the hit @WOKEJESUSCHRIST account on Instagram, we discuss satire and how far is too far when it comes to taking jabs at progressivism.
Come look at all things deconstruction, as we consider how we as the body of Christ can best respond to this troubling trend.
It Matters [Season 3.13] - Critical Race Theory + Anti-Racism with Samuel Sey [Part 2]
In this catalytic second episode with renowned writer and speaker Samuel Sey, we go deeper into the nuances of CRT + Anti-Racism.
Sey discusses broken family units, and the true cause of disparity between black people and white people in the USA. He shares more of his story and experience as a black man, and as the son of a single mother and immigrant in North America. In true form, all the hot-button issues in racial reconciliation are held under the lens of scripture and the gospel.
This episode is FIRE and we can’t wait for you to be as floored as we were in our conversation with Samuel Sey!
An Update from Esther and Elizabeth
A sister in Christ shared this lovely podcast with me and I’ve been devouring each episode for the last few weeks. The Spirit has used Esther and Elizabeth to convict me in so many areas. Their strict adherence to Truth and the beautiful ways God has gifted each of them in making that Truth accessible is truly a gift.
Love this show!
The series on progressive Christianity was awesome! Everyone should listen to Elizabeth’s story.
Biblical Truth for discerning the world today
The It Matters podcast has quickly become a favorite of mine and I find myself eager for the next episode to be released!
Esther and Elizabeth have a beautiful heart for sharing biblical truth and gracefully weaving it into how we can apply this truth to our world today!
It’s relevant, relatable and most importantly scriptural!
