    Why Discernment Today Is So Needed Yet So Neglected (Tim Challies)

    Every day we're bombarded with messages and ideas that vie for our attention and acceptance. And with the internet and social media dominating so much of our lives, the need for spiritual discernment, the ability to rightly evaluate those ideas through the lens of scripture, is critically important.

In this interview, Tim Challies defines and discusses the importance of spiritual discernment.
    Tim Challies is a self-employed web designer and a pioneer in the Christian blogosphere, having one of the most widely read and recognized Christian blogs, Challies.com.

Listening

I have been enjoying the conversations. They’re an excellent way to vary listening/learning from straight sermons and teaching. Also, I love hearing from authors about their new books. You can decide to get the book for further teaching!

First time Reviewer, because it is that good…

I’ve been listening to Podcasts for years but this is the FIRST podcast I’ve “reviewed” because it is so Biblical, so helpful, theologically sound and stirs my affections for God’s Word, His Church, to grow in my personal holiness and to be empowered to share the Good News, the BEST NEWS, Jesus Christ. Thank you!!
