    #43 - Our Approach to Conversion

    #43 - Our Approach to Conversion

    Our approach to conversion...  Is our process today of "raising our hands" to receive Christ or praying a "20 second prayer" creating strong disciples?  What kind of process did Jesus employ for people wanting to convert?  In this podcast David will explore our current approach to conversion within Western Christianity and contrast it with a surprising approach from Judaism.  It is a challenging subject that will make you think.

    #41 - Are Today's Preachers Weakening The Gospel? The Challenge of Modern Day Sophists

    #41 - Are Today's Preachers Weakening The Gospel? The Challenge of Modern Day Sophists

    Are Today's Preachers Weakening The Gospel?  The Challenge of Modern Day Sophists.  Paul had a lot to say about many preachers in his day who were relying more on the power of their own oratory to move people, than they were about the content and power of the message of the Gospel.  Paul had the same dilemma that we have today, where showmanship and polished rhetoric took precedence over the truth of the gospel.  Explore with us how the Sophists greatly influenced the Greco-Roman world and the church's viewpoint of power.

Sabbath

I have been learning so much from your these episodes! They have been fascinating! I'd love to hear your thoughts about something that's really been weighing on my lately. Could you do an episode on what the Bible says about the Sabbath? I was so sure it was legalistic to insist it had to be on a certain day of the week. However, I'm starting to think I've been wrong all this time and that God really does want it to be observed on Saturday. My husband does not agree. Can you help?

I found this podcast during a time of fasting. This day in age there is a lot of false doctrine going around, so at first I listened with caution and discernment before accepting it the messages of this podcast as truth. After I listened to Episode 43. #42 I knew in my spirit that this podcast has been ordained from God. Thank you for I have been blessed with deeper knowledge and understanding of the context in scripture. Sending you an abundance of blessings your way.

This is what I have been needing!

Stuff You Missed has cleared up so many questions I have had! It is like knowledge gold! I have listened to every podcast listed in this series. Even the ones that I thought wouldn’t interest me right off have captured my attention. I have a thirst now that I did not have before! I have needed information like this since I was a kid! When I was young, I was told that I ask to many questions and questions that I shouldn’t be asking. I was told that I was just supposed to accept what was in the Bible. I just couldn’t. I needed to know why it said what it said. This podcast has answered so many “why’s” for me! I am impatiently waiting for a new one!! Thank you David Hancock for your hardwork and curiosity!!
