Episode 36 – Minisode 2 – Announcement

http://media.blubrry.com/bite_sized_theology/p/jwexperience.com/podcast/Episode00036-Minisode00002-Update.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadSubscribe: Android | RSSIf you haven’t already noticed, I’ve been taking a bit of a sabbatical from the podcast and plan to start putting episodes out again starting the first week in November. With the feedback that I’ve received, I’m going to release episodes that are 5-15 minutes long at least twice per week (and hopefully every day Monday-Friday). I’m going to kick it off by going through Systematic Theology, which will realistically take several years to complete. I might intersperse other topics to break it up a bit (especially if I haven’t had time to do much study before recording), and there might be a few surprises along the way. I’m looking forward to this new direction, and my hope is that you will find it enjoyable, too. As always, I’d appreciate any and all of you running off to iTunes (or Apple … Keep reading!

Episode 34 – The Nashville Statement

Share this and other episodes with your friends, too! In what will likely prove to be the most controversial episode to date (and, possibly, ever), Joe discusses and affirms the recently signed Nashville Statement, a document which itself affirms orthodox Christian views of sexuality. This document will be seen as an attack by the church on all non-heterosexual positions, but it is not meant as a cudgel with which to bludgeon but a call to Christians to maintain biblical consistency.

Episode 33 – Legalism, Liberty, and License

It seems that the American church tends toward one of two extremes: legalism and license. Legalism basically boils down to attempting to please God and add to your salvation by adhering strictly to the words of Scripture AND attempting to force others to follow your own definitions/interpretations, even when Scripture is silent on a particular issue. License is basically saying, “God has forgiven me, therefore I can do absolutely anything I want.” Neither view is correct. In this somewhat disjointed episode, Joe attempts to explain what it means to be living in … Keep reading!

Money. We all need it, we often want it. Money makes the world go ’round. But money, or rather our use of it, reflects our love for God. Hitting a few verses that relate to budgeting and eliminating debt, Joe opens up a bit about his own struggles with money and encourages you to do better.
