    379 - What's Up, 1 Timothy 2?!?

    What's Up, 1 Timothy 2?!? All roads in the conversation for Biblical Masculinity and Biblical Femininity lead here: 1 Timothy 2, the scripture most used to keep women out of leadership roles. Today, Mike takes us on a deep dive to show how this is NOT what Paul was advocating for. What is the full context of Paul's letter? Who is he talking to? What is he addressing? We have seen that Paul had women in leadership roles throughout his ministry, so what is he saying here? What is Gnosticism? How does the full context of Genesis, the gospel and everything in-between inform Paul's writings? This verse has been used for decades to  sublimate women. While you can do all things with a verse taken out of context, maybe don't :)

    12:00 - 1 Timothy 2

    378 - Asking Better Questions of the Bible - with Marty Solomon and Tyler Chernesky

    Asking Better Questions of the Bible - with Marty Solomon and Tyler Chernesky

    Today we sit down with an old friend of the pod, Tyler Chernesky and a new friend: Author, teacher and host of the BEMA podcast, Marty Solomon. Marty has a new book coming out titled, “Asking Better Questions of the Bible: A Guide for the Wounded, Wary, and Longing for More.” Marty tells us his story, what prompted a deeper, humble pursuit of what the scriptures offer. How do we cultivate curiosity? How can we be more courageous in asking questions? Is holding a ‘high view of scripture’ knowing it can handle your doubts and pursuits? How has Marty’s Jewish heritage informed his studies? It’s a really fun, honest conversation that encourages a heart and mind that can ask better questions and hold mystery.

    377 - Woman Up!

    377 - Woman Up!

    Woman Up! Biblical masculinity does not mean devaluing women. Mike and Tim begin a conversation that will (next week) lead into 1 Timothy. What does the Bible actually say about women? Where does the complimentarian ideology come from? How did Jesus upend customs? How did Paul?  

    First, Mike and Tim interact with a few listener emails... If not the biblical masculinity standards, then what? Or, is the idea of standards in general missing the mark? Do they all lead to a performance of gender? What about the opposite message, to be nice and kind and avoid conflict and accept abuse…? How do we process and use anger? What does righteous anger look like when trying to emulate Jesus? How did Jesus express or process anger? What were the circumstances?

    3:40 - Mailbag

    29:30 - Biblical Femininity

    376 - Man Down!

    376 - Man Down!

    Man Down!  Today, Mike and Tim do some follow up work on the biblical masculinity conversation. So many listeners emailed in with follow up questions and the hosts sit down to talk through a few. How do the Sons of Thunder fit into the masculinity conversation? Was Jesus counter to the patriarchal culture? And if so, how? How does Sutton Turner's divulgence of Mark Driscoll's violent behavior, the attack on Paul Pelosi and the Jerry Falwell Jr. documentary play into all of this? 

    One of the questions asked about Ephesians 5 and how Paul's command for wives to submit to their husbands worked to undo the 'curses' from Genesis. Mike takes us on a deep dive into the Greek, the culture of the time and the Church in Ephesus. What was the cultural dynamic and hierarchy? How did Paul's teaching usurp that? How do complementation folks misuse this scripture and what are they missing??

    This resurgence of 'biblical masculinity' has become a large conversation in the evangelical arena.

    375 - How to be a Christian Nationalist - with Kaitlyn Schiess

    375 - How to be a Christian Nationalist - with Kaitlyn Schiess

    How to be a Christian Nationalist. Today, we are joined by author, Holy Post CoHost, friend of the podcast and one of our favorite guests, Kaitlyn Schiess, to discuss Christian Nationalism and our place within it. What is a Pastor's roll in speaking on national events or issues? How do they establish trust with that? What is our expectation of them? How do those of us who are against the idea of Christian Nationalism engage? How do we understand and navigate the Holy Spirit? How do we know what is a prompting or how to understand or decipher it's movements??? This is a really wonderful conversation with Kaitlyn!

    374 - Man Up!

    374 - Man Up!

    Man Up!  There has been a resurgence of Christian rhetoric around 'Biblical Masculinity,' with conferences like Man Up! and books that speak to the 'Masculinity of Jesus,' railing against the effeminate, egalitarian, 'soft' Jesus. Today, we take walk through Genesis 1 to see what the Bible actually says about gender and the the imposed hierarchy of male and female. Why do Christians want to uphold the macho man, head of the house aspect of masculinity so much? How does the creation story unfold? Were women created solely as servants and the 'lesser' sex? How do the words during the human creation actually translate? What was our intended purpose and how did our 'curses' after the garden speak to that? How did everything get so twisted? There's a lot to unpack.

My favorite weekly podcast!

I love this podcast. It has challenged me to live out my faith in a more Jesus-center way, challenged me to live out my life in a posture of worship, and challenged me to take the words of Jesus to truth as I love my neighbor as myself. I’ve so grateful for Mike and Tim- and even more so for SETH!!

yoummooo ,

Some good themes but takes a long time to get to it.

I sure appreciate the broad and relevant topics esp for us christians- it’s confusing out there!

Dangerous Ideologies

If you are looking for biblical wisdom, discernment, and truth avoid this podcast….. before any podcast seek God’s word and a wise mentor, and some biblically sound resources for podcast are The Just Thinking Podcast, Alisa Childers, Relatable and Center for Biblical Unity. (Just to name a few) Someone recommended this podcast to me and after just one episode ( however I listened to multiple) it was obvious that these men are not speaking truth, affirming sinful behavior in the name of loving they neighbor, and manipulating scripture. Jesus is the word in flesh from Genesis to Revelation and your interpretation of him in the name of loving others is false.
