Pull over - it‘s the Tone Police

Pull over - it‘s the Tone Police

September 15, 2021

A lot of Christian women seem to have the mistaken idea that “speaking the truth in love” equates to being “nice.” We should always be smiling and sweet and never say anything that might hurt someone’s feelings or could rock the boat. But what does the Bible say about our tone? Michelle and Amy dig into Scripture and take on the "Tone Police" in this episode.

Why Aren‘t Mormons Christians? with Pastor Travis McNeely

Why Aren‘t Mormons Christians? with Pastor Travis McNeely

September 8, 2021

You may have noticed that Mormons, or Latter-day Saints, believe that they should be considered “Christians” just like their Christian friends. However, there are stark differences in theology; differences that put Mormons - as kind as they are - in the heretical category. In this episode, Michelle and Amy interview Pastor Travis McNeely about what Mormons believe and teach.

The Trap of Entitlement

The Trap of Entitlement

August 31, 2021

It's an encore presentation! Entitlement is the belief that we are deserving of privileges or special treatment, either from God or from the world around us. It says “you owe me,” and a growing number of people are having tantrums when they perceive that other people are standing in the way or blocking whatever they think is rightfully theirs. Do we think we deserve the so-called normal that we had before 2020? Do we expect that things will settle down anytime soon? Hold on to those expectations loosely, because today we are talking about how this new normal of entitlement in our culture is creeping into the Christian mentality.

Michelle and Amy discuss some "pet peeves" in evangelicalism - things Christians, churches, and ministries do that can irritate. Little things. Maybe funny things. Maybe not so funny, big things.  And not just because they’re irritating, but because they’re unbiblical, unwise, or they’re a hindrance to others in their walk with the Lord.

Have you been dealt the Pharisee Card?

Have you been dealt the Pharisee Card?

August 10, 2021

Has someone ever called you a Pharisee just because of your faithfulness to Scripture? That’s called “Playing the Pharisee Card,” and it is usually dealt by someone whose deck is full of deceit - and for these dealers, truth is hard to hear. It’s easier just to shut down the truth teller. In this episode, we’re going to talk about the irony of the Pharisee Card, and what you can do if someone plays that card on you.
