    A Biblical Theology of Spiritual Growth, & Creating a Discipleship Pathway - with John Whittaker

    A Biblical Theology of Spiritual Growth, & Creating a Discipleship Pathway - with John Whittaker

    What is a discipleship pathway, and how do you go about creating one? What is the process by which people grow spiritually, and how do we help them do that?

    Dr. John Whittaker has served as a pastor and theologian for many years, in different capacities. He is the author of The Listener’s Commentary, an audio commentary of the Bible, that is available online. He is also the host of the Bible in Life Podcast. 

    About half-way through the conversation, I show John our church’s discipleship pathway, and he gives his raw, unscripted feedback on it, so make sure to listen until then, to see if our discipleship pathway passed his test!

    A Biblical Vision for Leadership - with John Currie

    A Biblical Vision for Leadership - with John Currie

    Leadership is a very popular topic in modern business discussions, but what does the Bible have to say about leadership? And is there a difference between the vision for leadership given in the Bible versus that which comes from the world?

    John Currie is professor of pastoral theology at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He has also served as a pastor in different churches and denominations, and in these roles, he has seen that sometimes pastors thrive in preaching, but struggle with leadership, or vice versa.

    In his recent book, The Pastor as Leader: Principles and Practices for Connecting Preaching and Leadership, John gives a biblical vision for a uniquely Christian approach to leadership.

    Cultivating a Heavenward Mindset in an Epicurean World - with Cameron Cole

    Cultivating a Heavenward Mindset in an Epicurean World - with Cameron Cole

    Cameron Cole experienced every parent’s worst nightmare: they put their son to bed one night, and in the morning they awoke to find that he had died in his sleep.

    However, the message of the Gospel, is that their son did indeed wake up in a greater and more profound way: he awoke to eternal life with Jesus, his Savior.

    In the wake of his son’s death, Cameron did a deep dive into the passages in the New Testament where Paul the Apostle writes about Heaven and Eternal Life. That study gave birth to his recent book, Heavenward: How Eternity Can Change Your Life on Earth. In our discussion, Cameron shares what he learned through this experience, and how it made him more heavenly minded. Cameron also shares about how to the hope of eternal life ought to shape the way we live here and now.

    Check out Cameron’s ministry: Rooted, which seeks to equip parents and churches to disciple children and students towards lifelong faith in Jesus Christ.

    Does Baptism Play a Role in Salvation? - with Stephen Pomeroy

    Does Baptism Play a Role in Salvation? - with Stephen Pomeroy

    Is baptism a requirement for salvation? There are some Christian groups who say that it is, and others who say it isn’t. 

    In this episode of Theology for the People, I am joined by Pastor Stephen Pomeroy from White Fields Community Church, and we look at the Bible verses and arguments which are central to the debate over “baptismal regeneration.”

    We aim to show you why we believe every Christian should be baptized, but that, as Christians, we are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone.

    Theological Anthropology: What is It, and How Does It Shape Our Understanding of Ourselves & Others? - with Michael Payne

    Do you know what sex robots, racism, and gender identity all have in common? In addition to being topics that are discussed in this episode, these topics are all related to the subject of Theological (or Biblical) Anthropology.

    My guest in this episode is Michael Payne. Mike is the Worship Pastor at White Fields Community Church, and he is a graduate student at Western Seminary, where he is pursing a Masters in Theology.

    In this episode we talk about what Biblical Anthropology is and how it shapes the way we understand ourselves and others, as well as how our view of anthropology shapes the way we live and interact in the world.

    Clarity is Kindness: Why Creeds and Confessions are Helpful for Transmitting and Protecting the Faith - with Carl Trueman

    Clarity is Kindness: Why Creeds and Confessions are Helpful for Transmitting and Protecting the Faith - with Carl Trueman

    What role should creeds and confessions play in the life of a Christian or of a church? If we have the Bible, then why are creeds and confessions necessary at all?

    Dr. Carl Trueman is the professor of biblical and religious studies at Grove City College. He is an esteemed church historian, and a fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center.

    Dr. Trueman’s recent book Crisis of Confidence: Reclaiming the Historic Faith in a Culture Consumed with Individualism and Identity addresses the claim that we, as Christians, need no creed but the Bible, and makes an appeal from history, reason, and Scripture for what he calls “confessional evangelicalism.”
