A podcast for Christians seeking truth about one of life’s greatest questions: What happens next, and how do I prepare? Your host, pastor and author James Hollandsworth, will expose the errors of traditional church teaching and present truth from God's Word.
036: Rewards for Secrets
What is your motivation for doing good deeds? Is it to be recognized by others? If so, then you have already received your reward. Pastor Hollandsworth reveals what Jesus said about doing things privately, so that you can be rewarded by Him publicly, in the age to come.
035: Righteous Inside and Outside
When teaching His disciples, Jesus emphasized the importance of internally obeying the spirit of the law rather than merely externally obeying the letter of the law. Pastor Hollandsworth explains the six examples given by Jesus of the righteousness that is necessary for inheriting the kingdom of the heavens.
034: What Did Jesus Say About Hell?
Many claim that Jesus spoke more about Hell than Heaven. Is that correct? Pastor Hollandsworth examines the two Greek words typically translated Hell in English Bible versions: Hades and Gehenna, explaining the correct meanings of those words. He also discusses why Jesus encouraged “radical amputation” in Matt. 5:21-30.
033: Great in the Kingdom
Jesus said that to enter the kingdom one must have righteousness that exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees. Pastor Hollandsworth defines what it means to enter the kingdom, what characterizes the righteousness of the Pharisees, what is greater than pharisaical righteousness, and how we can fulfill the righteous of the law.
032: Salty and Glowing
Jesus said that believers are the salt of the earth and the light of the world. Pastor Hollandsworth explains the meaning of those metaphors and describes what happens when believers become “unsalty” and hide their light.
031: The Heart of the Matter
Is the Sermon on the Mount evangelistic, or related to matters of sanctification? Is it applicable to church-age believers, or was it merely for the first century Jews? Pastor Hollandsworth discusses the errors of interpretation in this great teaching of Jesus and explains the purpose of the Sermon. He also describes the Beatitudes and the promises of reward.
As being a “proud Independent Fundamental Baptist” myself, I am glad that I can get great content like this that is only impartial to a mans honest study of the Bible. I’m loving it!
Great Bible teaching
Pastor Hollandsworth is very knowledgeable of the scripture and is not afraid to go against popular trends in order to explain what the Bible actually says. It will be well worth the time spent for the student of the Bible to give this a listen to.
