Join us for a weekly discussion on living with discernment in this world. We’ll have discussions of how the gospel and the word of God ought to be applied to current events, the problems facing our society, the history of what God has done in the world, trends in the church and many other topics. The scriptures have a lot to say about those issues, and we see a lack of Biblical thinking and application to culture in many professing Christian circles today. We want to do our part to reverse that trend.

    Why Faith and Reason Cannot be Separated

    Faith and reason are frequently set in opposition to one another. But what if it’s impossible to truly have one without the other?

    Jesus Christ Allowed Murderers to Kill Him. Should We?

    Jesus Christ Allowed Murderers to Kill Him. Should We?

    While a majority of Americans believe in the right to self-defense, there are some mainstream Christian teachers, such as John Piper, who make the argument that Christians should be willing to die rather than to take an assailant’s life. This view is particularly common among missionaries, with the story of Jim Elliot being commonly held up as an example. In this episode, we talk about the problems with this view and how it can lead to (or be caused by) a fundamental misunderstanding about the gospel, and the nature of justice and mercy. We also discuss the biblical basis for the right to self defense and we talk about how wrong teaching on the issue has caused problems on the mission field and Dan discusses some firsthand experiences he has had in Nigeria.

    One Year of Podcasting - Why We Started the Conquering Truth

    We started the podcast one year ago, so it seemed like a good time to take a break and discuss why we started the podcast, and a little bit about ourselves. We also reflect on some favorite moments from 2021, and some predictions for the future.

    When Must Christians Disobey?

    When Must Christians Disobey?

    Even before the coronavirus pandemic, the topic of when you can disobey the government’s orders has been a controversial subject of discussion. It’s a complex subject because as Christians, we both desire and are commanded to obey God, and as sinners, we desire to disobey the authorities that God has placed over us. In this episode, we walk through different scenarios and situations and discuss the different ways they might play out:

    1. Disobeying a command that would require you to break God's law
    2. Disobeying a command that usurps the authority of the church
    3. Disobeying a command that usurps the authority of the family
    4. Disobeying a command that is tyrannical in that violates a superior earthly authority, law or constitution
    5. Disobeying a command that although not inherently sinful or usurping another specific jurisdiction, is tyrannical in violating your liberty
    6. Disobeying a command just because you believe it is unwise
    7. Disobeying in order to make a political point of scene

    Some of them are based on our real experiences over the past two years navigating government restrictions on meeting and the government’s attempts at regulating specific aspects of worship, while others are based on historical examples. As always, our goal is to go to scripture and to focus on how God has ordered the world. Please join us as we discuss this issue.

    Santa Claus: An American Idol?

    Santa Claus: An American Idol?

    It is practically impossible to think about Christmas without thinking about Santa Claus. In secular circles, Santa Claus is widely accepted, but what is more surprising is how accepted Santa Claus is within conservative and even Reformed Christian circles. And it is specifically the practice of telling your children that Santa Claus - the supernatural being who flies around the world distributing presents to good children - is real, that we focus on in this episode. We discuss the nature of worship and idolatry, and how easy it is to think that we are completely different from our ancestors. We talk about how strongly children believe their parents and how this early deception impacts their view of God, the gospel, and God’s sense of justice.. And we talk about how this impacts the church and our ability to be a witness in the world. Please join us in thinking about these things.

    Here is a link to a previous episode we did on the subject of lying, titled, “Can You Lie to the Nazis?”: https://youtu.be/KnwuIFpsrXw
