[display_podcast] Welcome to the Big Picture Podcast.  This podcast seeks to begin and hopefully sustain a conversation about current trends, ideas and issues in the Church and greater society. Today we hear again from the Back Row Baptist, you know, the guy in the back pew who’s just takin’ in the view. He’s done checking the ESPN app on his iPhone that he hides in his Bible, and we now have his attention. He’s been getting some push-back lately about some things he’s said on this podcast, an … [Read more...]

[display_podcast] God uses flawed people to do His work!  One of the most well-known example of this is from the Book of Judges in the Old Testament.  I give you:  Sampson!  If you look at the things Sampson was supposed to do and the life that he was supposed to lead, he basically did everything wrong.  And when I say everything, I mean EVERYTHING!  He breaks his vow as a Nazarite, he hangs out with prostitutes, he compromises his faith and devotions with his relationship with Delilah... and y … [Read more...]

[display_podcast] You will experience hurt, fear, frustration, and feelings of injustice.  I’m sorry. It happens to all of us. And then you die. But it doesn’t have to lead to sin.

It all starts with a simple Bible verse: John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. So, we see here that Jesus Christ is God’s visible “reaching out” to you and me – His … [Read more...]

Carty’s Contemporary Classics: You Don’t Want To See Me When I Get Angry

Carty Thumbnail

[display_podcast] Think of a chain of islands under attack.  The enemy hits weekly with long-range bombers.   When you stay in sin, you “lose an island” to the enemy and he builds another airstrip and now sends medium range bombers three times a week.  You continue to stay in sin, he takes yet another island, builds yet another airstrip and hits you daily now with fighter cover. What you need to do is TAKE BACK the ground that the enemy had previously gained!  When we do this, we can put the ene … [Read more...]
