Abortion Aboliton with Brett Baggett

Abortion Aboliton with Brett Baggett

January 20, 2022

Sunday, January 23, is Sanctity of Life Sunday. Michelle and Amy cover - quite literally - a deadly serious topic: the abolition of abortion.
Did you know that there’s a big difference between being an abolitionist and being pro-life? Our guest is Pastor Brett Baggett, who will help you understand the difference and also encourage you to get involved in the fight against abortion, so that you can make up your mind: Are you pro life, or do you want to abolish abortion?

Glad You Asked! January 2022

Glad You Asked! January 2022

January 13, 2022

It's another interesting episode of “Glad You Asked,” a chance for you to ask us questions about where we stand on theological issues. Amy and Michelle believe the Bible - what God’s true, breathed-out Word says - trumps any opinions we may have!
In this episode we cover:

  • How should a christian wife respond when her husband abandons her?
  • What is biblical femininity (not womanhood)?
  • How can new Christians be equipped to train up their children?
  • What to do when church members block you on social media?
  • If a church’s worship team leads in songs from Bethel or Hillsong, etc., is that grounds for looking for a different church?
  • I was recently diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. Is this just sin?

Christmas Dinner with the Sexual Sinner

Christmas Dinner with the Sexual Sinner

December 21, 2021

How should a Christian relate to someone in their lives who is obviously living in sexual sin, without appearing to condone this marriage? Thankfully, God does not leave us without answers. As with every other issue in life, our thinking, our words, and our actions must be shaped by and in submission to the authority of Scripture. Not public opinion. Not political agendas. Not our own personal feelings, opinions, and experiences. Scripture.

Christian Liberty

Christian Liberty

December 18, 2021

What is Christian liberty? On many issues, the Bible is crystal clear with no room for debate. Those are “thus saith the Lord” kinds of things. On other issues, the Bible gives us room for differing interpretations. And sometimes the Bible is virtually silent on decisions we face in our lives, and we have to use godly wisdom and draw from biblical principles to inform our consciences and prayerfully make the most God-honoring decisions we can. Michelle and Amy explore what Scripture has to say about Christian liberty.

Santa Pause with Justin Peters

Santa Pause with Justin Peters

December 8, 2021

What do we tell our children about Santa Claus? Our special guest is Justin Peters, an expository teacher, author, minister, and husband to wife, Kathy. Justin's book and video, "Santa Pause" reveals a dark and even demonic history through the ages of this carnal Christian character, and in our present time he is celebrated as a kindly and omnipresent/omniscient old man who generously gives gifts - if you are morally good, that is. Justin shares his thoughts on the effects of lying to our children, and where Christian liberty may or may not play a part in our Christmas traditions.

Winter is Coming! Are You Prepped?

December 1, 2021

No matter where you live, these winter months remind us that preparing for whatever comes our way in the freezing months ahead is a good thing.  Sometimes we can get so wrapped up in preparedness that it can become an idol. We have a God whose plans, whose providence, whose will is not going to be thwarted.

A Theology of Thanksgiving

A Theology of Thanksgiving

November 22, 2021

Do you have a theology that includes thanksgiving all year long? Even in the worst circumstances or the direst of situations?

God wants His people to be thankful to Him, not just because He deserves our thanks, but because it is good for us to be thankful. It helps us fix our eyes on all He has done for us - from the greatest gift of all, giving His precious Son to save us from our sins.

Michelle and Amy wish you a Thanksgiving filled with gratitude and kindness. We are thankful for each and every one of you!

Twisted Complementarianism

Twisted Complementarianism

November 17, 2021

If you aren’t familiar with the term “complementarianism,” it simply means “the biblical roles of men and women in the home and in the church.” It's also a term that has been twisted into something else. Complementarians like Michelle and Amy believe men and women are both made in the image of God, and equal in value to Him. However, we have some wonderful, ingenious differences in the way God wired and equipped us. We also have different roles in the home - the husband is responsible for leading, and the wife is responsible for being his helper and submitting to his leadership. In the church, it is the responsibility of biblically qualified men to serve as pastors, elders, and deacons, to preach and teach the Scriptures to men and any co-ed adult groups, and to fulfill positions of authority over men and co-ed adult groups.

That‘s Enough! The Sufficiency of Scripture

That‘s Enough! The Sufficiency of Scripture

November 9, 2021

Have you ever thought God was talking to you in your mind? Maybe a friend has said, “God told me such and such,” or “God showed me something” in a dream or a vision. Does God speak to people audibly today like He spoke to Moses, the prophets, and a few others in Scripture?

All of those ways people think God is speaking to them are called “extra-biblical revelation” - things that God is supposedly revealing to them outside the pages of the Bible. But as Michelle and Amy share what God Himself tells us - in the Bible - that He communicates with Christians through His sufficient written Word.
