Does God punish us for the sins of our ancestors? Should we repent of sins our parents or grandparents committed even if we had nothing to do with those wrongdoings? Those questions are coming up lately as many people grapple with the idea that people of a lighter skin tone must repent of racism against people with a darker skin tone. The headlines from the visible church -- the ones that follow the social gospel anyway -- tell us that racism is a generational sin we must repent of.
Amy and Michelle discuss what the Bible has to say about generational sin with special guest Beth Seifert. Beth is a wife, mom, home school teacher and women's ministry teacher, as well as the author of many Bible studies at Naomi's Table.

We always say at the end of every episode, "Walk Worthy." Today’s topic is one that should bring comfort and conviction about how to do that in a way that honors Christ. In John 14:15, Jesus said, “If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.” So what did Jesus command? He wasn’t talking about keeping the Old Testament Law, nor was He telling us we need to have a works-based salvation to get into Heaven, but as an act of obedience, love, and reverence for our Savior.
Bible Verses: Mark 11:25-26 Matthew 3:2 Matthew 3:8 John 15:4 Matt 5:14-16 Matt 5:25
Matt 5:29-30 Matt 5:34-37 Matt 5:38-39 Matt 5:40-42 Matt 5:43-45 Matt 6:1 Matt 6:5-7 Matt 6:9-15 Matt 6:16 Matt 6:19-21 Matt 6:25-26 Matt 6:34

Long before whispers of covert COVID operations, conspiracy theories have been rampant - and rabid. Should we as Christians spend time looking into the Illuminati, secret societies or symbols and codes in music and movies, or buying into the flat earth theory? What about vaccines and doomsday prophecies? What about 5-G towers and injections that might maybe be the Mark of the Beast? Amy and Michelle look at conspiracies through the lens of Truth.

When it comes to doctrine, what are essentials and what are the non-essentials, or secondary issues? When Christians speak about essentials, what they’re talking about is the fundamentals of our faith, and what we believe about God that makes us His own. These are the doctrines which you, biblically, have to believe in order to become a Christian and/or be considered a Christian. So what are some issues over which Christians can disagree and still maintain close doctrinal fellowship?

Sometimes when we say the Bible is sufficient to guide our lives, the question arises, “What about the leading and guiding of the Holy Spirit? How does that fit in with the doctrine of the sufficiency of Scripture?” There are so many theories and teachings about this third person of the Trinity that it's no wonder so many people are confused about who the Spirit is, and what He actually does, and does not do.
If you're not quite sure what it means to be lead by the Spirit, this podcast episode will clear things up - thanks to what the Scripture teaches about the Holy Spirit.

Right now the vast majority of us are having to watch worship services online. And even though many of us miss fellowshiping with our brothers and sisters, we can get a little too used to the routine of sleeping a little later and plopping down on the couch with a good cup of coffee to watch church. We might even be tempted, once quarantine is over, to keep “going to church online.” Michelle and Amy discuss the importance of faithfully fellowshiping with the Body again once this is all over.
