While Amy's recovering from surgery, Michelle goes solo with your favorite recurring feature here on A Word Fitly Spoken - Glad You Asked! In this episode, Michelle answers these questions:

• Should a woman who's a new convert admin and teach Scripture in a co-ed Facebook group?

• How can a Christian wife submit to her husband when he doesn't want her to go to church?

• Isn't Beth Moore an OK teacher as long as she doesn't overtly teach against the person and work of Christ?

• What is prayer walking? Is it mysticism?

A lot of Christians have been watching the unfolding news headlines of what is happening in California and Pastor John MacArthur's Grace Community Church (GCC). Many are asking some great questions, like, are John MacArthur, the elders of GCC, and the members of GCC sinning by meeting indoors in person, and thereby disobeying the governor’s order? Why couldn't they just try to meet in other ways? And what about the lawsuit that GCC is bringing against the state of California? Is that biblical? Michelle and Amy discuss what the Bible has to say about this topic.

Can we expect Divine Providence?

Can we expect Divine Providence?

It's our 50th episode! Thanks so much for listening!

Today: Does God care for His people in supernatural ways? Yes indeed, and it's called Divine Providence. 

Providence is a word that comes from Provide, or provision. God does provide for His people in ways we sometimes don’t recognize. But when we do see it, it’s an amazing thing and one that fills us with awe and wonder as we realize just how much He cares for us. Amy and Michelle head to Scripture for some amazing verses on how God has done this from the beginning of time.

The Why and How of Worship

The Why and How of Worship

August 18, 2020

What is worship? The Bible tells us it is so much more than simply singing God's praises, but singing is part of how we worship.Worshiping God is the essence of our Christian life. To worship is to show reverence and adoration for a Holy God. The meaning of the New Testament Greek word most often translated “worship” (proskuneo) is “to fall down before” or “bow down before.” WHY do we worship? Amy and Michelle dig into Scripture for answers to the why and how of worship.

Discerning Todd White

Discerning Todd White

August 5, 2020

How can we be wise and discerning when false teachers start telling the world that they’ve seen the light of the true Gospel of Jesus Christ?
This happened recently when preacher Todd White surprised his audience by telling them that he repented for not giving them the whole Gospel all these years. Known for his seeker-friendly messages, psychic readings and leg-lengthening "miracles," Todd White has a massive worldwide audience who heard the true Gospel one week, but a different message the next.
Michelle and Amy encourage listeners to look to God for true repentance and fruit, rather than the words people say.

Is God all love, ALL the time? Yes! And His definition of love includes holiness, righteousness and wrath. In this episode we discuss how the Bible describes God’s love, and then share a few ways the world and even some Christians have a slightly distorted view of God's love.

You may be painfully aware that public schools have long been infected with a radical agenda that is intentional and well thought out, planned and executed for more than a century without many of you even knowing it.
