    Love Covers a Multitude of Sin But it Doesn't Sweep Abuses Under the Rug

    Love Covers a Multitude of Sin But it Doesn't Sweep Abuses Under the Rug

    There are some out there who deny the existence of spiritual abuse. I’ve mentioned it before and received quizzical looks and heard replies of “that’s not a thing”. Sadly, I’ve personally experienced it at a very deep level over the course of many years and I know many others who have experienced it as well, so I know all too well that it is a thing.
    Does it mean that abuses in the church exist on a grand scale? I sure hope not. But just because you’ve not personally witnessed it or experienced it, doesn’t mean it’s not a thing.

    S4Ep13 - Complacency in the Church and How We Can Begin to Reverse It

    S4Ep13 - Complacency in the Church and How We Can Begin to Reverse It

    Recently I saw a social media friend of mine (who also happens to be a pastor) post the following statement:
    "What are you going to do about your complacent approach to Jesus and His church?"
    And it got me thinking about the many times I have accused the church body of being too complacent, or apathetic, or disconnected from the Church. Reality is, back then, what I really meant was that they didn't come to church enough. And they didn't volunteer in church programs enough. Or that they so quickly left one church to go to another church.

    But why is there complacency in the Church and how can we begin to reverse it?

    Some Christians have been calling empathy a sin. Other Christians seem to think "masculinity" is the goal to hit for men. Let's talk about that!

    S4Ep11 - Mass Shootings and Gun Control with guest Eric Nevins

    You may not realize this, but there were 7 mass shootings in 6 different states in the month of March 2021 within the span of 10 days. And one of them happened down the road from Eric Nevins, host and founder of the Halfway There Podcast, founder of the Christian Podcasters Association, and the Religion & Spirituality Category Director for Podcast Magazine (-- click this link to get a FREE subscription).

    In this episode, Eric and I talk about mass shootings, the churches response (or lack of one), and what could be done to help combat this seemingly growing problem in America.

Honest Conversations...We need more!

Believer or not, if you are willing to hear differing opinions and ideas, you're going to enjoy the conversations here. I don't agree with everything that's said. And, you know what? That's OK! Really appreciate the commentaries and conversations and the disagreements. WE NEED MORE!

Great perspective

This podcast gives a solid viewpoint from a Christian worldview strongly based on the Bible. It looks at what is happening in our world trying to help us navigate it while living the Christian life, which is one of loving God and loving others.
