    Episode 387: Differentiating Between Ethics & Care

    Episode 387: Differentiating Between Ethics & Care

    Healthy discipleship needs both a bright, clear Christian ethic, and kind, loving Christian care. We live in an age that wants to separate these two. Our culture says that holding to a biblical ethic is unloving; that the only way we can "care" for people is to "affirm" their choices and decisions. In this episode, we discuss how Christians can grow in courage to hold to their ethical convictions.

Thoughtful Engagement

This podcast has been such an amazing blessing to me over the years. There is so much evidence of charity and humility over a such a wide range of topics. I was initially not looking forward to the Systematic Theology of Herman Bavinck but it has really been a blessing over the last year and a half or so. Such rich and deep theology and robust conversations are truly encouraging to hear and I am so thankful to the whole team that makes these conversations happen.

Love Being Formed By CD!

Honestly love this podcast so much and the way it has been not only challenging, but forming my thoughts / views / beliefs / etc. It’s a refreshing listen that transports me out of the slew of the world and back to the true gospel and what it looks like for us and means for us today. I also love that their humor and humanity is kept in the episodes, really comforting and encouraging oddly enough. Appreciate the time and investment to help train up many!!

Exvangelicals episode

I really appreciated the exvangelicals. Particularly the conversation about the need for stories about healing and transformation in contrast to the deconstruction and denunciation on social media. I have known people who have renounced their faith or stopped following Jesus, and that can be really discouraging. However, I have run into old friends that I knew from several years ago that are still following Jesus, and those are some of the most encouraging and refreshing conversations I’ve had. It’s so important to be reminded of how God is still at work in contexts outside my own.
