#130 What are Red Flags for Spiritual Abuse in Your Church? with Teasi Cannon
In this video, I continue my conversation with Teasi Cannon about the nature of spiritual abuse, and what danger signs to be looking out for in your own church.
#129 Spiritual Abuse and the Church: Why Should We Listen? with Teasi Cannon
My friend Teasi Cannon and I have walked through a lot together. We decided to give my viewers a bird's eye view of what our conversations have looked like as we've processed the spiritual abuse we walked through together. We pray it will edify and encourage the body of Christ and possibly be a vehicle of recognition and healing.
#128 From Violence, Chaos, and Confusion to Christ-follower, with Greg Stier
Greg Stier was raised in a family of bodybuilding, tobacco-chewing, fist-fighting thugs. He never knew his biological father because his mom had met his dad at a party; she got pregnant, and he left town. Though his mom almost aborted him, in a last-minute twist, Greg’s life was spared for so much more. Greg joins Alisa to share his radical story of redemption and helps timid Christians to get over their fear of evangelism.
#127 Responding to the Transgender Moment: How to Speak Truth into Culture, with Ryan T. Anderson
Can a boy be 'trapped' in a girl's body? Can modern medicine 'reassign' sex? Is our sex 'assigned' to us in the first place? What is the most loving response to a person experiencing a conflicted sense of gender? How has the scientific evidence surrounding sex and gender become politicized?
Ryan T. Anderson, author of the book, "When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment" joins me to discuss these topics and answer your questions!
#126 What Would we Know About Jesus if Every Bible Suddenly Vanished? With J. Warner Wallace
J. Warner Wallace joins me to celebrate the release of his new book, Person of Interest: Why Jesus Still Matters in a World that Rejects the Bible. We'll talk about this much-anticipated release, take your questions live, and hear from a couple of surprise guests.
I’ve been working my way through these podcasts, and I so appreciate their relevance to many of the greatest threats to believers’ faith today. I keep recommending specific episodes to college students I know and to my wide circle of friends. The critical reviews listed here are, I think, quite groundless, especially those that criticize Alisa’s courtesy and tone towards those who think differently than she does. I have found her to be quite kind in her criticism, often attempting to give progressives the benefit of the doubt that they desire to be sincere in their faith, even as they stray further and further from biblical soundness.
Praise God for Alisa!
In a world increasingly adrift on the waves of moral relativism and confusion, Alisa is a much needed voice. As I have wrestled with ideas, even from Christians, that are full of deception and moving towards Progressive Christianity and meaninglessness, I have found Alisa’s podcast a place of grounding. Not only does she point me back to truth but she gives me ways to graciously and effectively articulate what I believe and why it matters. Thank you Alisa!
Alisa is a breath of fresh air. God is using this woman to bring much needed truth to many deceptions taking place today.
Her episodes with Jac Marino have been so informative and eye opening to see one aspect of the spiritual warfare taking place.
Thank you for offering this show!
