Meeting People Head On with Ray Schmautz 22: The One Prayer God Will ALWAYS Say YES To!

[display_podcast] In our last podcast, I talked about God’s commandment to grow closer to Him and to be filled with the Holy Spirit.  This week, we’re going to look at what the Bible says we should do in order to live in a spiritually healthy manner. Just like breathing, we need to “exhale” or get rid of all the things that might hinder us; and “inhale” or bring in the things that God has for us to draw us closer to Him. 1 John 5:14-15 says this:This is the confidence which we have before H … [Read more...]

Ouxano 89: Storytime with Jesus’ Parables

[display_podcast] From Pastor Matt Tague, author of Read the Word: The Bible was written for you: We’ve already discussed the four New Testament Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, as well as the Book of Acts, which tells about how the Christian Church began.

In Ephesians 5, we learn about what it’s like to turn away from ungodly things, and t … [Read more...]

Jesus in HD 106: “These Were His Instructions…”

 [display_podcast] From Dewey Bertolini, Pastor of The Safe Haven in McMinnville, OR: We have come in this PODCAST to a monumentally significant section of Scripture.

Emotional because of its context (Jesus’ compassion for people wi … [Read more...]

Blending Your StepFamily 54: Truest Truth (About You)

[display_podcast] From Pam Rohr, author of Blended but not Broken - Hope and Encouragement for Blended Families: How can we help our kids to accept and like themselves? Come to think of it, how can we really accept and like our self? As adults, we think we should be all put together and have it all together. But I have learned through my coaching business, that many of us still don’t know for sure, quite who we are. And our feelings about our self can change quite rapidly. We feel great when we … [Read more...]

The Problem of Evil: Obstacles to Faith with Mark Mittelberg Part 6

To purchase the entire DVD set of the Summit Lecture Series, visit summit.org.When someone has something bad happen in their life, it is not due to their moral evil. Jesus very explicitly taught against that: About this time Jesus was informed that Pilate had murdered some people from Galilee as they were offering sacrifices at the Temple. 2 “Do you think those Galileans were worse sinners than all the other people from Galilee?” Jesus asked. “Is that why they suffered? 3 Not at all! And you … [Read more...]
