#26 Where is God in all of this trouble?

Today I’m spending some time reflecting on the general troubles of the world and also some specific issues of the day in light of the already-but-not-yet paradigm of scripture. As always, the Bible has wonderful answers to life’s toughest questions. REF Music by Ben Sound

#25, Spiritual Gift of Tongues

On the podcast today, What is the Spiritual Gift of Tongues? Is it just other languages? Or is it something more? Has the gift ceased? How should it be practiced? REFS Douglas R. A. Hare, Matthew, Interpretation, a Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching (Louisville, KY: John Knox Press, 1993), 65. Schreiner, Thomas. “Why I

#24 Christian Antinomianism, Noah Stepro, Kairos

Sorry this episode is coming so late! On this episode I’m talking to Noah Stepro of Kairos, a pastor and good friend of mine. We are discussing Christian Antinomianism.

#23, The Power to Rise Above, Ephesians 4:14-19

This week at Sonrise we experienced a powerful message of God’s rescue from the desperation that plagues our society and people. We all have a great need for inner strength and that strength is available to us through Christ by His spirit that dwells in us. On this episode of TWH, I intro the message,

#22 Revealing God’s Administration to the Rulers and Authorities in the Heavens, Ephesians 3:7-10

Finally back after a crazy couple of weeks and excited to dive into some Unseen Realm context. In this episode I talk through the way that the God works through the church to declare His authority over the nations to the rulers and authorities in the heavens. Who are the rulers and authorities? What role

#21 Preconversion Discipleship, Andrew Alesso, Thrive LA

In my Instagram, @theologywithfeet, I asked my audience if discipleship begins before or after someone professes to follow Jesus. Over 75% said after. [Dramatic Pause] But, the scriptures testify otherwise. The testimony of the scriptures is that of preconversion discipleship; that is, discipleship–the making of a disciple–begins before someone even believes in Jesus. On this

#20 One People of God, Ephesians 2:11-22

Trypho asks, “Are Christians Israel?” Justin answers, “we are both called and in fact are Jacob and Israel and Judah and Joseph and David, and true children of God” (Justin Dial. Tryph. 123). In this episode I unpack Ephesians 2:11-22 and compare it to the broad teaching of the NT regarding the continuity and discontinuity

#19 Against Consumerism and Individualism, Ephesians 2:8-10

On this podcast I’m talking through salvation by grace through faith (see infographic). Specifically, I’m targeting consumeristic and individualistic ideologies–and as a bonus, Moralistic Therapeutic Deism. If you don’t know what that is, give it a listen! It’s real. Ephesians 2:8–10(CSB) 8 For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves;

#18 Regeneration, Ephesians 2:1-5

On this week’s podcast, we’re doubling up again to tackle the doctrine of Regeneration through Ephesians 2:1-5. What exactly changes in us when we come to Christ? Why do we care? And what do we do about it? Ephesians 2:1–5 (CSB) FROM DEATH TO LIFE 2 And you were dead in your trespasses and sins

#17 Christ Is Above All, Ephesians 1:20-23

EDIT: Check out my message from Sonrise Church that goes with this podcast as well. I think some of the connections clearer than on the podcast, although the podcast has more of the theological front-matter. https://www.facebook.com/plugins/video.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FSonrisePalmdale%2Fvideos%2F2941655709242875%2F “He [God] subjected everything under his [Christ’s] feet.” Continuing in Ephesians and discussing the authority of Jesus.
