    081: The Seven Deadly Sins: Pride

    081: The Seven Deadly Sins: Pride

    Pride. When you say this word, there are many possible definitions that one can give . . . some good and some bad. When it comes to the Bible, though, there is only one definition for pride, and it's not a good one. In fact, many believe that pride is what lead to Satan's fall and the destruction of mankind as a whole. So, what is pride?
    In this episode, Marc and Fuller flip through the pages of Scripture to land on a definition of pride, figure out why God hates pride so much, and why pride will ultimately destroy our lives if we let it.
    Curious about the fun fact this week? All you need to know is that BBC pulled off one of the greatest pranks of all time.

    080: Witchcraft & Wizardry

    080: Witchcraft & Wizardry

    The worlds of witchcraft and wizardry have taken over our society by storm. Wether it's full fledged demonic possession in movies or the use of crystals to ward off the spirits in the real world, "witches" and "magic" are becoming normal in our culture. Not sure of what to do with all of this, many Christians completely blacklist anything that mentions the word "magic," while others see no problem at all because it seems like magic is just another topic in fantasy and children stories. Battle lines have been drawn in the sand over the recent years, and many Christians aren't exactly sure how to respond to magic. With there being so many different viewpoints with this topic, many are left wondering how should Christians respond this all of this.
    In this episode of RTC, Marc and Fuller talk about all things magic. From Harry Potter to Lord of the Rings, nothing is off limits in this conversation. With using both the Bible and their personal experiences, they talk about this topic and various elements within the magical world. The result? A real conversation that took many turns along the way.

    079: Focus: Church, Should We Reinvent the Wheel?

    079: Focus: Church, Should We Reinvent the Wheel?

    Today's church is often marked by programs, services, worship experiences, outreach events, and custom-tailored events to serve the whole family and surrounding community. Both small church and large churches are doing all they can to do something new and fresh to reach people for Jesus, but is this what the church should be focused on?
    In this week of RTC, Marc and Fuller look at ways the church has tried to reinvent the "wheel" of doing church in four key areas and ask the question if it's good that the church has put their focus on these things. Some are great and some . . . not so much. Take a listen to look at these four ways with us and ask yourself the question of "how should church do church?"

    078: Focus: The World, The Kingdom, & The Balance

    078: Focus: The World, The Kingdom, & The Balance

    If Christian aren't supposed to be a part of the this world, should Christians even care about what goes on in the world? If we do care about though, just how much is too much caring?
    In this week's episode of RTC, Marc and Fuller start a two part series called "FOCUS," and in doing such, call the church to get their focus back on the right things, including our view of the world and our relation to it. In this episode, they talk about what the world is, God's relation to the world, and how much we should be involved in the world's affairs.

    077: Does God Choose Us or Do We Choose God?

    077: Does God Choose Us or Do We Choose God?

    In the Christian world, there is a long standing debate of who initiates one's salvation – God or man. Since the days of John Calvin and Jacobus Arminius (and even back to the time of St. Augustine), the question of "Does God choose those who follow Him, or does man have the ability to choose to follow God on his or her own accord?" This view is a big difference between not only those in the Protestant Church, but this belief is also a big divide between the Catholic Church and Protestant denominations.
     
    In this episode of RTC, Marc and Fuller look at the history of the Calvanist and Arminianist beliefs, what the Bible has to say about this conversation, and why your view on God's salvation can dictate how you view God and the world.

    076: The Rapture of the Church

    076: The Rapture of the Church

    "When Jesus comes back, will you go with him or will be left behind?" This is a phrase that if you've been in church for a while, you may have heard a pastor a church person say. But, is this the correct question to ask regarding the rapture? In a Christian world that is obsessed with the rapture and end times, do you know what to believe? Better yet, do you know what the Bible says?
     
    In this episode of RTC, Marc and Fuller talk about the rapture of the church. In this conversation, they dig through the Bible and look at church history to see how we, as Christians, should view the rapture of the church and how we as Christians should approach this subject.

Best Christian podcast out there

RTC is one of the best christian podcast out there. They incorporate humor laughter and at the same time go in depth of the word and the theology of topics. You guys rock! Continue being you and May God bless you.

Awesomeness! David W. From North Carolina

I listen to a lot of podcast, but this is the one I keep coming back to! They tackle real life, with real talk, but not without the real Word of God! With their mix of nonsense (humor) and discipleship-style commentary you definitely laugh while you learn. Not to mention there exaltation of coffee, this show for me is a no brainer...a must-listen 😀

Helpful Christian Podcast! Andy, Michigan

My son wanted a solid Christian podcast centered on interesting conversation and that was also theologically sound. I have only listened to a few episodes so far, but I have found them very helpful and in line with scripture. Thank you for this ministry and giving me a Christian podcast that I feel comfortable recommending to my son!
