    You’re not enough (and that’s okay) with Allie Beth Stuckey

    Allie Beth Stuckey joins us on Pardon the Mess today to discuss our culture’s tendency to lean into meology—a me-centered theology. Instead of teaching the truths of scripture and discerning what the Bible says about God, we often turn our focus on what scripture says about us and look to find our value apart from God.

    Mini-Mess: Changing names 4

    Today is our last mini-mess episode for July. We’ve been studying places in the Bible where God changed a person’s name (Abram to Abraham, Jacob to Israel, Simon to Peter) and the massive impact it had on his life. This series has been a great reminder of how God comes to his people when they need him most, transforming their lives from the inside out.

    Mini-Mess: Changing Names 3

    Mini-Mess: Changing Names 3

    We’re digging into Matthew 16 this week, where Jesus changed Simon’s name to Peter. This name change reminds us that when we fully grasp who Jesus is, we become “a rock” or “cornerstone” in the larger narrative of the gospel. We begin to see new significance and meaning in our days.

Love this Podcast!!!!

I cannot stop listening to this podcast! I just discovered it a few weeks ago while browsing and trying to find a Christian podcast to listen on my way to and from work so I randomly picked one and I’ve loved all the ones I’ve heard so far. Cynthia does a great job, and she always seems to find a way to deliver Biblical information that is so pertinent to trying to be a Christian parent in today’s world, which is tough!!! Keep them coming! I love them and share episodes with my husband and friends all the time! Thank you for doing what you’re doing!!!
