    Answering Difficult Bible Questions - Joe Lamberth (Ep 74)

    Answering Difficult Bible Questions - Joe Lamberth (Ep 74)

    The Bible is filled with things that are sometimes hard to understand. The earliest portions of the Bible were written over three thousand years ago, and the latest portions were written almost two thousand years ago. There's a lot that's changed in the world since then, and that leads to a lot of difficult questions at times, even for experienced Christians. So today Chris and Josh are joined by Chris' brother Joe who asks some of those difficult questions.

    Accepting the You God Sees - Juanita Rasmus (Ep 73)

    Accepting the You God Sees - Juanita Rasmus (Ep 73)

    We each have an inner story about who we think we are. This self-narrative guides our lives and the decisions we make. Are we the kind of person who goes skydiving? Or are we the kind of person who buys a boat, or goes camping, or lives in an apartment and not a house? The answers to these questions really have to do with our identity; who we are. As Seth Godin describes, “People like us do things like this." But what happens when the narrative we’ve created for ourselves can no longer support us? What happens when our life falls apart and we are forced to re-evaluate who we are. This experience can shake us to our core and send us spiraling into the depths of depression. This is the experience Juanita describes in her book, Learning to Be, as the identity she has built for herself had to be torn down so that God could reveal to her who He had created her to be.

    What If Jesus Wants Less for Your Life? - Chris Nye (Ep 70)

    What If Jesus Wants Less for Your Life? - Chris Nye (Ep 70)

    Every decision we make is motivated by some desire we have. And for most of us in the US, that means a desire for more. We want more money, a larger house, more safety, more happiness, and... well, just more. But when we look at Scripture, this pursuit of more may not be the way Jesus intended us to live a lifestyle of discipleship. It's difficult to read Philippians 4 where Paul tells about his secret of contentment and at the same time think American capitalism and consumerism are what Paul's lifestyle would look like. In this episode, Chris Nye talks about what he's finding to be valuable for living a lifestyle of discipleship while at the same time living in a culture where there's always a pressure to consume more. It could be that Less of More is a better way to be more like Jesus.

    Is the Bible Really Authoritative? (Ep 69)

    Is the Bible Really Authoritative? (Ep 69)

    As followers of Christ, one of our primary tools for knowing Him and His will is the Bible. In fact, we often proclaim that it is THE primary way for us to know who God is. But have you ever asked yourself "why"? Why do Christians believe in the Bible is authoritative in our lives?
    Asking this question isn't a sign that you have weak faith. On the contrary! It shows that you are maturing. Mature disciples ask these kinds of questions because we have a desire to go deeper in our relationship with God. We don't want to rest on the legacy or word of our parents. We want to grow our faith so that it is able to stand on its own two feet. We believe that if God is really behind Scripture and is working in our lives to reveal Himself to us, then there are no questions we could ask that could ever dismiss the truth of who He is or what He's done.
    So in this episode, Josh and Chris explore why the Bible is one of Christianity's most valuable tools for seeking to know God.

229: Rediscovering the White church

Thank you so much for being honest, first, and secondly, for having this type of conversation over the airwaves. Race & racism is deeply embedded in America, pushed by power and a system of hierarchy in which, I believe you gentlemen now understand and hope others will, as well. I was so impressed by your conversation that this fellow podcaster had to share this episode with her listeners. Lyvita
