Because we spend 98% of our lives outside the walls of our church buildings, the aim of The Ninety-Eight Podcast is to help Christians think and live from an explicitly biblical worldview out in the world. The Ninety-Eight Podcast is an extension of Crosspoint Church, whose mission is to "Make Disciples of All People for God's Glory." We pray you are encouraged and edified in your walk with Christ through this podcast.

Great for Rigid Fundamentalism
I was intrigued by some of the topics covered as a theology enthusiast, but the depth and breadth of the conversations is pretty shallow. This podcast serves to reinforce Christian fundamentalist faithful in their theology without bringing on guests with outside perspectives (or even expertise) that might provide richer conversations or uncover some nuance of complicated topics. As such, some of the topics (like the biblical counseling vs therapy episode) can be misleading and potentially dangerous as faithful are directed to strictly Christian resources absent of the best practices in mental health services. In that episode in particular, at no point did anyone delineate the requirement in qualifications for Licensed Professional Counselors and the lack of oversight for Biblical Counselors which is potentially harmful.
It’s a semi entertaining podcast with good intentions, but if you come from any other Christian tradition (mainline or Catholic) you’ll find yourself in the out-group of these conversations.
