  • A Crazy Idea for Sanctification, the Local Church

    14/10/2021 Duración: 30min

    One-to-one interaction is the most efficient way to help another person change. For too many believers, discipleship in a community, in the context of a local church, is not the norm. Favorite books and preachers become our disciplers, which is not God’s best no matter how wonderful the celebrity preacher or your favorite book is. Nothing displaces a competent, caring friend, who can exegete you with God’s Word in a customizable way.

  • When the Thing That Protects You Becomes Your Prison

    11/10/2021 Duración: 30min

    Some relationships can become so painful that you must retreat while implementing self-protective measures to prevent being hurt again.

In time, her fortress became her prison.

  • You Must Know This Before You Counsel Anyone

    09/10/2021 Duración: 30min

    Sometimes stereotypical counseling can get in the way of what you want to do with an individual, especially when the counselee has a preconceived, pessimistic instinct about what might happen. You’ll see this with some teenagers because they sense a three against one setup—parents and counselor versus the teen. Knowing how to predict this possibility and customizing your care accordingly is essential.

  • Ep. 366 Webinar: Engaging the Culture, Bringing Jesus to the World

    06/10/2021 Duración: 01h10s

    Show Main Idea: There is a full-on culture war as social evangelists try to persuade, intimidate, censor, and influence anyone to their worldview. It’s no longer acceptable for conservatives to sit on the sidelines, siloing, hoping for a better day. Silo Christianity is when believers draw lines that separate themselves from those in the culture who need the gospel. They critique the other side but do not engage them. Jesus has called us to go and make disciples.

  • Ep. 363 Webinar Pursuing Conflict for Unity's Sake

    30/09/2021 Duración: 01h48s

    Sometimes in life, you have to get in a conflict with someone. This dreaded reality is not a wish, desire, or prayer request but rather a common-sense perspective that comes with living in a sin-cursed world. It is impossible to have two humans living close to each other for an extended period and not have relational conflict. Sin does not accommodate our desires for peace or a hope for the path of least resistance.

  • How to Resist the Incremental Reality of Becoming a Dull Believer

    28/09/2021 Duración: 30min

    Spiritual dullness in a community of Christlike disciple-makers is hard to imagine, but it happens all the time. We can lull ourselves to sleep, lose our gospel edge, and before long, we are ticking the Christian boxes without thinking. If the practice continues, we will replace the meat we enjoyed with the milk of our former newborn babe life. The solution is to surround yourself with those who have a vision and plan to spur you to love and good works within a reciprocating community.

    25/09/2021 Duración: 30min

  • Ep. 357 Response to The Rise and Fall of Mars Hill, Episode 5

    11/09/2021 Duración: 30min

    Shows Main Idea – This review of episode five in The Rise and Fall of Mars Hill podcast series begins with a warning similar to the last episode about prescreening it before listening to it with others.

Please use caution before you recommend this episode.

    09/09/2021 Duración: 30min

    Shows Main Idea – This review is of episode four in the Christianity Today series, The Rise and Fall of Mars Hill. CT warns the listeners that you may want to prescreen this episode due to the sexual nature and language. It is a gross episode—the first half—that may leave you feeling dirty after hearing it. The key idea is, why was the message so popular when the messenger was so flawed?
