    Podcast 156 -- Ecclesiates 1:1-11 Is Reality Broken?

    Podcast 156 -- Ecclesiates 1:1-11 Is Reality Broken?

    "Everything is meaningless," Solomon writes. Right now, with the world coming apart at the seams, where do we as Christians find meaning? We pause from our regular study series to look at what the Bible says about depressing times, and, in our "no church answers" tradition, consider gaming as one way to find structure in the world. With us: Robert Cocheu ("The Professor"), Michael Cropper ("The Judge"), Kyle Trahan ("The Deacon") and host Steve Titch ("The Gambler"). Cited in our discussion: Reality is Broken by Jane McGonigal,

    Podcast 155 – Matthew 20:29-34 Jesus Offers a Blank Check

    Podcast 155 – Matthew 20:29-34 Jesus Offers a Blank Check

    “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asks two blind men. Their answer can be taken several different ways, which might make it the most appropriate for anyone at any time or place. We also view this healing as another example of Jesus seeing past the pressing crowd and addressing those too easily ignored and marginalized. Our panel: Mike Cropper (“The Judge”), Steve Titch (“The Gambler”), Robert Cocheu (“The Professor”) and host Bill Cox (“The Director”). Visit us at www.man-upspiritualoasis.com.

    Matthew 17:24-27 Even God Pays Taxes*

    Matthew 17:24-27 Even God Pays Taxes*

    What do Christians owe the government? Taxes? Respect? Obedience? Our panel turns its attention to Jesus’ instruction to pay the temple tax so as “not to give offense.” We correlate that with other parts of scripture that call for submission to earthly powers, but does that obligation change under modern democracy? Our panel, still submitting to government social distancing orders: Mike Cropper (“The Judge”), Kyle Trahan (“The Deacon”), Steve Titch (“The Gambler), Robert Cocheu (“The Professor”) and host Bill Cox (“The Director”).

    Podcast 153 Matthew 17:14-21 The Apostles Fail a Pop Quiz

    Podcast 153 Matthew 17:14-21 The Apostles Fail a Pop Quiz

    Is faith strong enough to move mountains? A frustrated Jesus schools his disciples. Why the harsh tone? We talk about what “having faith” truly means. Is it simply believing God can do anything for you if you wish hard enough, or is there something deeper, more mature in committing to seeking the Kingdom? Our panel, frustrated by Covid-19 but responding in a Godly way: Mike Cropper (“The Judge”), Steve Titch (“The Gambler) and Robert Cocheu (“The Professor”) and host Bill Cox (“The Director”).

    Podcast 152 -- Matthew 15:21-28 Even Dogs Get Crumbs

    Podcast 152 -- Matthew 15:21-28 Even Dogs Get Crumbs

    We explore a section of Matthew’s gospel where Jesus seems most unJesus-like, ignoring a woman seeking healing for her daughter and then apparently insulting her when she gets his attention. No polite Sunday School answers as we unpack these verses, finding virtue in being “persistently humble.” On our panel this week: Mike Cropper (“The Judge”), Steve Titch (“The Gambler) and Robert Cocheu (“The Professor”) and host Bill Cox (“The Director”).

    Podcast 151 – Matthew 14:22-33 Get Outta the Boat!

    Podcast 151 – Matthew 14:22-33 Get Outta the Boat!

    Which failure is worse: taking a risk and falling short or never taking a risk at all? Peter may not have been able to walk on water, but he did get out of the boat. We discuss this miracle and overcoming fear and rising to the challenge of Christian engagement. Also, we grade ourselves on how we’ve each handled social distancing and other restrictions of the Covid-19 lockdown. Panelists this week: Mike Cropper (“The Judge”), Kyle Trahan (“The Deacon”), Steve Titch (“The Gambler) and Robert Cocheu (“The Professor”) and host Bill Cox (“The Director”).
