A Word Fitly Spoken
Twisted Scripture - Part 1

Twisted Scripture - Part 1

April 5, 2022

We’re starting a new episode series called Twisted Scriptures. You’ve probably seen people using popular Bible verses out of context on social media, on Christian T-shirts, or maybe even in church or your Bible study class. Over the course of this series, Michelle and Amy will take some of those popular twisted verses, straighten them out, and put them back where they belong - in context - so we can see what they really mean.

Turning Your Eyes Upon Jesus

Turning Your Eyes Upon Jesus

March 15, 2022

It can be so easy to get discouraged by the bad news around us today, the rottenness of sin, the disappointment of loved ones who let us down. These past several years have shown us a world that is growing increasingly dark.  But God offers hope through the promises of His Truth!

Roman Catholicism: Mass Confusion

March 1, 2022

Do you have loved ones who are Roman Catholic? Many of us wonder how we can talk about our differences with our dear ones in love and truth. Amy and Michelle cover eight different theological areas of Roman Catholicism that - when we hold these teachings and practices up to the light of Scripture - we run into big, deep problems.  We also share how some celebrity pastors and conference speakers and authors are actually encouraging their churches to partner with the Catholic Church in unity, and why this mustn't be.

Mardi Gras, Ash Wednesday, and Lent

February 22, 2022

Mardi Gras, Ash Wednesday, and Lent are all traditions that are connected. But are they biblical? Michelle and Amy dig deep into Scripture to explain why sweet treats and parades are fun, the theology behind these traditions are far from biblical truth.

All the Single Ladies

All the Single Ladies

February 16, 2022

What does God's Word have to say about being single? A lot! A Christian woman who is single, regardless of whether she never married, has been divorced, is widowed, etc., can honor God in her daily life just as any married woman can. Unfortunately many single church members say they are treated as second-class citizens by their church families.

Love And Marriage

Love And Marriage

February 9, 2022

Hollywood marriages last about as long as peanut butter cups in a bowl full of raisins. Not much of a shelf life, and not based on Christ.

The Bible has a lot to say about what "real" marriages look like. With more than 60 years of marriage experience between them, Michelle and Amy discuss biblical love and godly marriages, and what they've learned.
