    Do Christians Need The Old Testament? W/ Joe Mueller

    Do Christians Need The Old Testament? W/ Joe Mueller

    If Jesus fulfilled the law and the Old Testament, do Christians need to read it? Does the Old Testament have anything to say about salvation? Do we have to live by the laws? Should Christians "un-hitch" from it? How do we interpret something so old? To discuss these questions and more, the guys sit down with professor and pastor, Joe Mueller.

    Emily J Hooks on Forgiveness: A Better Conversation

    Emily J Hooks on Forgiveness: A Better Conversation

    What does it mean to forgive someone? What does that practically look like? How do you know if you've truly forgiven them and what does it mean if negative feelings come back years later? Can you forgive someone without ever seeing them again? Is there such a thing as not being ready to forgive? And if so, how does that square with scripture? To discuss these questions and more, the guys sit down with author, speaker, and forgiveness expert, Emily J Hooks.

    Aundi Kolber - Mental Health and The Church: A Better Conversation

    Aundi Kolber - Mental Health and The Church: A Better Conversation

    Does the church do a good enough job addressing mental health and trauma? Can mental health conditions, or traumatic experiences be simply "prayed away" without seeking help from mental health professionals? Are they indicative of a lack of faith? Are there mental health practices everyone can benefit from? What is trauma and is it possible that traumatic experiences are more common than we think? Is it possible for the church to cause trauma and if so, how should we address that? To discuss these questions and more, the guys sit down with licensed therapist, author, and speaker, Aundi Kolber.

Customer Reviews

Nicadade ,

Excellent!!

This is an excellent podcast I started listening to it not long ago I have to say that the topics they touch on are very interesting and well broken down. Too bad they don’t do it more often

JesstotheDrake ,

Relevant, smart, entertaining

These guys are talking about important faith questions with open minds and sincere hearts. They don’t presume to know definitive answers. They just know some “important” questions fall short of helping Christians live their best lives.

B-Barr ,

Intrigued listener

I’m thoroughly enjoying listening to these young men discuss topics that are sometimes avoided because as humans we may be afraid of the answers or questions. I feel they provide nonjudgmental views on the issues they have talked about. Bonus, I’ve learned a few things along the way. Thanks!
