An-Examined-Life-Square-Icon

[display_podcast] We are blessed and honored to have one of my favorite people on the planet join our show:  Pastor Tommy Nelson of Denton Bible Church in Denton, TX (DentonBible.org).  Anyone familiar with my own story is familiar with Tommy.  The tapes that were given to me regarding the Book of Ecclesiastes that God used to pull me to His kingdom were from Tommy’s ministry. Now, I believe that the Song of Solomon should be taught in every junior high school across our country.  Let the paren … [Read more...]

The Summit Lecture Series: Scientific Naturalism Worldview with JP Moreland, part 4

The Summit Lecture Series 1

There are some moral issues that are difficult, but there are very clear moral propositions that everybody universally knows, such as: being kind and honest are virtues not vices.  These two are good things, no matter what perspective of life or upbringing or geographic region of the world you hail from. Then there’s what is known as Knowledge of Our Own Consciousness.  Now, when I refer to “consciousness”, I mean what you are aware of when you introspect.  So, suppose someone just h … [Read more...]

Meeting People Head On with Ray Schmautz 6: Eternal Assurance

Meeting People Head On Thumbnail

Last time, I shared what the Bible says about how to become a Christian. But, how can we be assured that if we put our faith in Jesus Christ to be the Savior of the world, that He personally came and died for you to pay your penalty of death for your sin, so that you could have His righteousness – the Bible clearly says that you could be assured that if you were to die today, you would have eternal life and be with God forever. And that’s an assurance that’s worth more than all the money in … [Read more...]

Confessions Of A Closet Christian: Why Do We Worry?

Jana Thumbnail Big 2

[display_podcast] I think I follow a bit of a God pattern.  Here’s what it looks like: I work myself up into a tizzy.  This is usually very melodramatic as no one has died, but rather plans – my plans – have changed. I freak out in my tizzy.  This usually happens at a speed of 0-60 and sends me into stern-worded rants, ugly crying, and the mass consumption of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream along with a dozen cookies. I realize God is supposed to be some sort of Mastermind, so I decide to put my wh … [Read more...]

[display_podcast] In 1 Samuel 8, we transition to the Israeli people’s request for a human king:As Samuel grew old, he appointed his sons to be judges over Israel. 2 Joel and Abijah, his oldest sons, held court in Beersheba. 3 But they were not like their father, for they were greedy for money. They accepted bribes and perverted justice. Now, remember that we discussed this subtheme throughout Samuel of father/son relationships and leadership.  Several examples are given, including this one … [Read more...]

Confessions of a Closet Christian: Why Does God Feel Like A Product I Have To Sell?

Jana Thumbnail Big 2

When I invite someone to church, I get uncomfortable.  In fact, the word “invite” needs to be interpreted loosely.  I rarely have the courage to ask somebody to go to church with me. I’d rather throw up my breakfast. – eggs and all. Most of the time, I don’t even really invite them.  I merely mention my church one too many times and they ask if they can come check it out. This has got to be the work of the Holy Spirit – because Lord knows it’s not due to my own words or efforts. And the Holy … [Read more...]
