    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.

    Post-Election Discipleship - Andréa Snavely (Ep 68)

    Post-Election Discipleship - Andréa Snavely (Ep 68)

    The United States has a very important election coming up in less than a week. The nation is more polarized than ever before, and this polarization is even reflected in the Church. But this is unfortunate considering where our allegiance as Christians should lie: with Christ and His Kingdom. So the question we wanted to talk with Dr. Snavely about is how should we as Christians understand our role in politics, and especially how should we respond on November 4th when the election is over. Ultimately, our hope isn't in who wins or who loses the election. Our hope and trust is in God who sits on the thrown.

    The Healing Journey Back to Unity with God - Gary Moon (Ep 67)

    The Healing Journey Back to Unity with God - Gary Moon (Ep 67)

    Life is a journey. It sounds cliche, but there's a truth in that statement, especially for Christians as they strive to live a lifestyle of discipleship. When it comes to spiritual formation, we often think that process is meant to form only one part of our journey, the spiritual part. But this misses out on the beautiful whole of our life God wants to shape and form. He doesn't just want to shape our spirit, but our heart, mind, behaviors, and relationships as well. He wants to shape everything in us to be like him. But this process is a journey that takes time. It takes time because we don't naturally want to let him make these changes. In this episode, Gary Moon, unpacks a few of the ways God wants to shape us. His experience in psychology and spiritual formation, along with his wit and humor are a refreshing perspective on what it means to live a lifestyle of discipleship.

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
