Is Women Preaching a Secondary Issue?

Is Women Preaching a Secondary Issue?

July 25, 2022

What is a so-called "secondary issue in doctrine?" And does women preaching and having authority over men in the congregation fall in that category?
Hang onto your hats -- in this episode, Michelle and Amy explain why Scripturally, a female "pastorix" falls into a level of apostasy in the visible Church, and not an issue Christians can simply agree to disagree on.

Preventing Abuse in the Local Church

Preventing Abuse in the Local Church

June 17, 2022

The issue of abuse in the church has been back in the spotlight recently, due in large part, again, to the Southern Baptist Convention. For the past year, the Sexual Abuse Task Force has been looking into how allegations of sexual abuse at Southern Baptist churches were handled by the SBC’s Executive Committee. In this episode, Michelle and Amy discuss ways to prevent abuse from happening in your local church.

What Would YOU Do?

What Would YOU Do?

May 26, 2022

What would you do if:

  • A man dressed as a woman comes to your ladies Bible study?
  • A friend was experiencing some kind of demonic oppression or possession?
  • The only place large enough to have your loved one's funeral is in an unsound church?
  • A homeschool mom's husband dies, and she is considering going back to work and putting her kids in public schools?
  • Your pro-abortion family members want to engage with you in a debate?

Michelle and Amy seek wisdom from Scripture to discuss biblical options for scenarios like these.

Did you know that there’s a big difference between being an abolitionist and being pro-life? Michelle and Amy cover - quite literally - a deadly serious topic: the abolition of abortion. In this "throwback episode," 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?

Why We Won’t Stay Silent

Why We Won’t Stay Silent

May 10, 2022

In recent times many women who speak truth are told they need to be silent, and not "criticize" anointed teachers who "occasionally" teach something opposite of what Scripture says. Amy and Michelle have both been sounding the alarm for a number of years about wolves in sheep's clothing, and we've been pointing to God's Word as the only source of truth by which all teachings must be measured. We do it because so many people have come from abusive, apostate churches and need to hear. In this episode, we discuss why we can not - MUST NOT - stay silent.

Titus 2: Teach What Is Good?

Titus 2: Teach What Is Good?

May 2, 2022

Does Titus 2: 3-5 really say that women should not be teaching doctrine to - or sharing the Gospel with - other women?

Michelle and Amy were guests this week on Voice of Reason, a podcast by Chris Honholz and Richard Story, to discuss what seems to be a new twisting of Scripture: a wave of legalism that seems to be gaining momentum, especially in Reformed circles. And it tells us that women are not to be teaching other women anything about holiness or doctrine, and that any woman teaching another woman Scripture - whether it’s one-on-one over coffee, in a women’s Bible study or at a women’s conference - is being disobedient to God and in danger of becoming a feminist.

Cange the Direction - With Tom Ascol

Cange the Direction - With Tom Ascol

April 27, 2022

The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), has its share of challenges, as some of its member churches and even some of its leaders have embraced women preachers, critical race theory, and more. Can this ship be turned around in the right direction?

In this episode, Michelle and Amy interview Tom Ascol, the pastor of Grace Baptist Church in Cape Coral, Florida. You may know him better as the head of Founders Ministries, and as an anticipated nominee for president of the Southern Baptist Convention.
