Our mission at CSG is simply this: Take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the ends of the Earth and make disciples of all nations through the preaching of God's Word (Matthew 28:19)!!!
During that journey, we are searching through every page of the Bible in our pursuit to understand the TRUTH of what God Himself has revealed: about Himself, and about us, His creation.
We invite special guests dedicated to their particular fields of study on the podcast, to give us their perspectives on current and historical questions and issues the Church as a whole as faced throughout the centuries! We ask the experts the questions and invite you to weigh in on the conversation with OPEN PHONES on nearly EVERY EPISODE!
In other words, The whole CSG community is examining ALL PERSPECTIVES of the claims made about what God's Word "really says" (Acts 17:11), discerning them, to get to the bottom of God's truth!
All of our content and resources are 💯% FREE as we believe the Gospel should be preached to all FREE OF CHARGE so we invite you to listen, weigh in, and share this ministry with loved ones! God bless you all and stay tuned...we're just getting started learning about The Triune God!
Episode 80: Practical Christianity Ep. 7: The Great Commission w/ Nicholas Soellner
We begin this episode with some background and a introduction to the Roman Catholic Church (RCC) as well as what Nicholas sees as the greatest difficulties to presenting the Gospel in a 21st Century context today! That segue’s us into a discussion about two types of evangelism, public and private!
After that we discuss the emphasis the RCC places on personal evangelism and touch on RCC beliefs concerning different sacraments and the role of prayer within the life of a follower of Jesus!
We wrap up this episode with the practicalities and importance of evangelism as well as the mental health and well being of Pastor’s and Priest’s, and how we ourselves, as Christian’s and Roman Catholic’s, must be praying for our leaders as they fulfill the important, yet stressful task they’ve been called to do! Priest’s and Pastor’s alike need us for encouragement, exhortation, and they are asking for our prayer’s as we ask them, so let us not forget to pray for and help as much as we can, the local shepherds of our communities!
Absolutely loved having Nicholas on to discuss this with us and we hope you are blessed and take what you learn from this CSG episode and APPLY IT to your walk with Jesus! May God be praised and glorified and His children exhorted and edified!
Episode 79: Practical Christianity Ep.6: The Importance of Scripture and Prayer
CSG host's Joshua Davidson and Tyler Fowler sit down with their good friend Michael Moore to discuss the practical benefits of STUDYING God's Word as well as the importance of having an active prayer life in our relationship with Jesus Christ!
We are getting practical on our 6th episode of our Practical Christianity series about Scripture and Prayer and we begin by unpacking a definintion for prayer by John Piper. After that, Josh, Tyler and Michael address questions like "What if I can't find time to pray or study Scripture?", "What do I do if prayer or Bible study feel's like a routine/ritual?" and "What do I do if I don't feel like praying/studying Scripture?" and dive into Romans 8:22 to explain the Holy Spirit's role of intercession in the life of the follower of Jesus! We then turn to Ephesians and James to examine what the Apostles say about prayer and Bible study and the results of those activites!
Episode 78: Practical Christianity Ep.5: Narrative Structure w/ Gerritt Schuitema
What is Narrative Structure and why should I even care about it? This was my (Tyler) initial thought when Josh first began talking to me about this topic, but WOW, I am ever so glad we had this conversation with our good friend Gerritt Schuitema! Josh and Gerritt break down the importance of PARTICIPATING in the story in order to achieve an end goal, namely to become as Christ. All who are born again are also being sanctified (becoming more like Jesus), and when participate in the things Jesus Himself has commanded us to do (baptism, the Eucharist aka the Lord's Supper, ect) we are transformed degree by degree into His Image! This episode of CSG dives into details of Narrative Structure, emergence and emanation, how narrative structure connects to the Imago Dei, why it's so important for all human beings to be participating in what Christ has commanded all people everywhere to do and what happens when we don't!
Episode 77: Practical Christianity Ep.4.2: Temptation Tactics w/ Dane Van Eys & David Russell - CSG & PorA Collab
David Russell and Dane Van Eys are back with Josh and Tyler as we continue our Practical Christianity series and Part 2 of our episode on Temptation! This time we turn to Luke 4 to get the full picture of Jesus' temptation by Satan! What did Christ do and how did our King fight temptation? Hang out with us this hour to add to your own arsenal of practical tactics you can use the next time you find yourself staring temptation in the face!
Episode 76: Practical Christianity Ep.4.1: Temptation Tactics w/ Dane Van Eys & David Russell - CSG & PorA Collab
David Russell (Proselytize or Apostatize – PorA) and Dane van Eys join Noah, Josh and Tyler to answer questions like “How do we handle temptation & sin practically” and “How do we help others that are struggling with temptation”. All temptation is circumstantial yet, for believers, God has promised a way out in every temptation (1 Cor. 10:13). As believers in Jesus Christ, sanctified by the Holy Spirit of God, we must, at times, grit our teeth, push through the pain, find the door that God has promised to put in every temptation, and walk through it, even when we don’t “feel like it”. In the second half, we offer exegesis of Matthew 4 so come hang out with us for an hour and let us know what you thought of this episode of The Complete Sinner’s Guide!
Episode 75: Practical Christianity Ep.3: Fruit of the Spirit
In episode 3 of our 10 part series on Practical Christianity Josh, Noah and Tyler read through Galatians 5 and give you some practical application of the "Fruits of the Spirit" found verses 22 and 23!
