I don’t exactly know how I reached this podcast but it has been a great find. I’m a Christian that grew up in a very formal rigid denomination. And this podcast hits home and talks about the many things I’ve dealt with in my faith journey using humor and great guests.

Love these guys

Rank #2: 60 - Church, Singles, and the Idolatry of Marriage with Joy Beth Smith

Podcast cover
Read more
Joy Beth Smith is a managing editor with Christianity Today and releasing her new book “Party of One” this week! She comes on the show and enlightens us on the church’s failing when it comes to interacting with single people. She rightly points out how the church is steeped in the idolatry of marriage both in doctrine and in practice, and how the prosperity gospel is still alive and terrible in the single world. Joy Beth also has a bold and powerful call to the unmarried: Don’t wait until marriage! While Party of One may be written for single women in the church who are desiring marriage, it’s full of insight for the married and how we can minister to one another despite our marital status. This interview was a blast, we hope you enjoy! Grab a copy of “Party Of One” today! Available through Nelson publishing, Amazon (http://a.co/ffgx3Wt), or wherever fine books are sold!

We love your thoughts and feedback! Get a hold of us, and we’ll share it on the show!

Rank #4: 67 - You're Not Called! with Jamie the Very Worst Missionary

Podcast cover
Read more
Have you ever felt called to ministry? Yeah, you probably weren’t. Jamie was a missionary in Costa Rica and she was terrible at it… so was everyone else, but that wasn’t the story churches were getting back home in their monthly newsletters! Jamie has since gone on to be a voice in the wilderness boldly asking people to think critically before supporting that vacationing missionary with no qualifications to be in ministry. In this episode Jess (Jason’s wife) fills in for Alex as he and his wife welcome a foster child into their care. In his absence, we talk about missions, calls to ministry, puberty and... periods. It gets real.

Rank #14: 40 - An Error Free Episode about Biblical Inerrancy w/ Dave Duncan

Podcast cover
Read more
Dear Christian, are you sitting down? We hate to break it to you, but if your bible is written in english, its not perfect. It has errors. Dave Duncan (former pastor, and southern Baptist seminary student with a major in the canonization of scripture) joins Alex and Jason to show us that the message of the bible is God-breathed, but our translations, though worthy and useful, are not perfect. Dave presents some great questions. Is the word of God soley contained in the pages and between leather? Are you comfortable with translators deciding gray areas? We discuss all of this and more without error and in great clarity in this episode.
