Should Christians desire certain spiritual gifts more than others? Can spiritual gifts be cultivated as we train ourselves to be used by the Spirit? Are spiritual gifts given at birth or after one's baptism? These and many other questions are addressed in our latest podcast.
This episode is part 2 addressing the question of miraculous, spiritual gifts. Are they still around? Does God still work in this way?
Are spiritual gifts still around or have they stopped? The guys begin to tackle the great “cessation” question in the first of 2 parts about the miraculous.
In this episode the guys tackle some of the questions that were posed to Shane Claiborne after his first session at the Michigan Christian Convention. The content incorporates government, laws, justice, and grace.
This episode is Shane Claiborne's first presentation at the Michigan Christian Convention. Shane is an engaging presenter and storyteller who has intentionally placed himself among the least of these to live out the gospel in the context of inner city Philadelphia. We will use this presentation to do some follow up Q&A next week.
Since we didn't get through all the questions we had on our list in the last episode, we tackle a few more. Specifically, we discuss "Is the Church the world's conscience?" and "What role does politics have in social justice?"
Hopefully you were able to listen to John's Michigan Christian Convention presentation laying the groundwork for a biblical view of social justice. In this episode we follow up and try to answer some of the questions that were thrown at him. John gets a second crack and them and Ron and Sam add their thoughts as well.
This "episode" is John's presentation at the Michigan Christian Convention. The theme for the whole conference was "Social Justice" and this presentation lays the groundwork for what is to come.
As the guys bring their "sex talk" to a close, they discuss what it means for the church to embrace biblical sexuality and to live that ideal out day and and day out in the community of believers.
In this second episode about homosexuality, the guys tackle some of the New Testament passages regarding the topic and attempt to explain them in a gracious yet biblically faithful way.
The guys continue their "sex talk" and move to the specific topic of homosexuality. In this episode they lay out the biblical understanding of sex as a foundation for interpreting this very prominent issue.
We interrupt our regularly scheduled podcasts to give a shout out to the Michigan Christian Convention!! It's next weekend, April 12-13 at GLCC. Here are our top 10 reasons why you should attend!
As the guys continue their discussion of sex and sexuality, they use the decisions of the Jerusalem council (Acts 15) to guide their understanding. But in order to truly grasp their logic, it requires an understanding and acceptance of Levitical laws. Tune in to see how the guys navigate the testaments to inform their views on sex.
In this episode the guys continue their discussion of all things sex related and talk about the Greek word "porneia" and its usage in the Bible. Their conclusions and applications might surprise you!
This episode follows up on the discussion of whether legalizing sex work should be condoned by Christians. The guys lay out a biblical view of sex and marriage, which is often counter to cultural norms and trace the concept of "one flesh" through the Old and New Testaments.
