Wretched Radio | Air Date: October 13, 2022
https://media-wretched.org/Radio/Podcast/WR2022-1013.mp3

Segment 1

When were men more manly?

Masculinity has been on the wane for a long time.

The Industrial Revolution changed families.

What is masculinity?

Segment 2

Why were men becoming sissies?

A movement in England started in the 1800s searching for the manly men of God.

Men look different, earn different, and live different today.

Who is the ideal?

One gender plays a set of roles, the other plays a complimentary set of roles.

Where do we search for the right role model to help us through this?

Segment 3

The YMCA and Boy Scouts were born out of Muscular Christianity.

We have to be careful how we figure this out. It’s really easy to fall into a ditch.

The biggest outcropping of muscular christianity – sports culture.

What makes a man masculine? Godliness.

Jesus calls us to something hard.

Segment 4

The more Godly men are, the better it is for women.

In 1948 Billy Graham’s Modesto Manifesto

1. Guard against lying and deceit.

2. Take only a fixed salary from their organization

3. Never be alone with a woman other than wife, mother or daughter.

4. Never criticize fellow members of the clergy.

Quite quitting? All the rage today.

Do you know the Doctrine of Sovereignty and the Doctrine of Providence?

Wretched Radio | Air Date: October 11, 2022
https://media-wretched.org/Radio/Podcast/WR2022-1011.mp3

Segment 1

Tim Challies recently sat down with Todd for the latest Breaking Bread episode to discuss the death of his son, Nick.

You and I will face tragedy at some point, if you haven’t already.

Did you have a feeling of responsibility?

Doctrine of sovereignty and a doctrine of providence.

What are the three most visited attributes of God in the Bible?

God is good, able, and faithful.

In tragedy, we have to separate how God does it, with how God is using it. 

Segment 2

Do you ever wonder if God still loves you? Do you get angry with God?

You need to know God’s character and interpret providence through His character.

Experiencing a loss like that, while also attempting to figure out who God is at the same time is a recipe for anger and resentment toward God.

God seeks a relationship with His people.

Have we been acting too much like dualists?

Segment 3

The Nobel Prize in Literature has been awarded to a French novelist who wrote a book celebrating adultery and abortion.

Remember the book of the boy who visited heaven? 

The recent hurricane in Florida has been politicized.

Does God want equal outcomes?

Planned Parenthood is not happy about a new movie portraying the life a Marilyn Monroe. 

Segment 4

Juanita Bynum is teaching a prayer class at the “reasonable” rate of $1500 per person.

Our President wants to pardon thousands of people charged with marijuana possession.

There is a lecture being taught that claims Jesus helped a friend “come out and be bold”

This pro-gay video uses Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead as the example of Jesus being pro-LGBTQ.

TALKING TO AN INSANE WORLD

Podcast cover

The world has gone completely insane, we know because the voices told us.

Wretched Radio | Air Date: October 10, 2022
https://media-wretched.org/Radio/Podcast/WR2022-1010.mp3

Segment 1

The potential new Governor of Georgia, Stacy Abrams, has been uttering some ridiculous statements.

The cancel culture has done much in discouraging Christians for standing and speaking for truth.

A Texas nurse has been fired for refusing to participate in racially divisive training.

Dr. Erwin Lutzer has written a book that is very helpful for Christians.

Dr. Lutzer encourages Christians to stand for the truth and still be loving.

Segment 2

We are living in a cancer culture era.

De-transition diaries are young people speaking out regarding the mistake they made transitioning to another gender.

We don’t need to fix our bodies, we need to fix our brains.

We have to be mindful of two audiences. The people who are hurting and struggling, and the people who are perpetrating these horrific crimes.

How should we talk to people?

It’s time for the church to step up to the plate and seize the high moral ground.

Segment 3

On one hand, you have people who are super-winsome who have no desire to offend anyone. On the other, there are those who have no issues speaking the truth at any time or place.

What’s the biblical way?

James Wood, from the American Reformer, has written an article to help us avoid a third way.

Do you place unity above disagreements? Can you have cultural disagreements in matters of morality? 

If you’re a Christian who votes democrat or hold progressive views, you owe your fellow Christians an explanation.

What is winsomeness?

Segment 4

Punch right, coddle left.

Those who chart a middle path in controversial issues tend to shame those who are willing to speak for truth.

3 terms helpful for Christians.

1. Clarity

2. Courage

3. Resilience

Faithful Christians need encouragement to press on from clear and courageous leadership.

Silence about false teachers is fueled by the fear of losing favor.

There are eight marks of a sluggard that we’ll list here after our nap.

Wretched Radio | Air Date: October 04, 2022
https://media-wretched.org/Radio/Podcast/WR2022-1004.mp3

Segment 1

The 8 Marks of a Sluggard – Derrick Brown

1. The sluggard will not start things – they wait for others to tell them what to do.

2. The sluggard will not finish things (sometimes, even if they start them).

3. The sluggard will not face hard things. Will tend to turn to entertainment to take their mind off hard things.

4. The sluggard is anxious and restless. You’re made to work hard. Doesn’t mean we don’t rest.

Segment 2

It’s hard work to buy a house in today’s market.

We were made to work. God is a working God.

5. The sluggard has constant trouble. Financial trouble. Living perpetual messiness at home.

6. The sluggard is a nuisance to others. Be Godly. Not Worldly.

7. The sluggard is self-deceived.

8. The sluggard will not become a leader.

Segment 3

A lot of pastors have tried the book of Nehemiah into a leadership guidebook.

If you are looking for a leadership book for Christians, look to the ENTIRE Bible. All of it.

We see all over the Bible that God wants us to work in teams.

In the beginning – at Creation – there was teamwork. The Trinity worked together in creation.

God formed and shaped teamwork.

Segment 4

God puts together teams.

How do we make our decisions? How to do we go about these things together?

Benefits of teamwork:

1. Increased profit

2. Help in time of need

3. Emotional comfort

4. Protection

Love honors others and points out the contributions of others.

THE WORLD JESUS KNEW

Understanding the culture where Jesus lived will give us a better understanding of our Savior.

Wretched Radio | Air Date: October 03, 2022
https://media-wretched.org/Radio/Podcast/WR2022-1003.mp3

Segment 1

If we go back and look, we can appreciate when our Savior lived.

“The World Jesus Knew” by Anne Punton

The more you can get your first century knowledge colored, the more the Bible will come alive for you.

When you hear the John the Baptist was eating locusts and honey what comes to mind?

Segment 2

Locust and honey. Is that was John the Baptist really consumed?

The greatest prophet of all time never ate an old country buffet.

Same for Jesus.

Segment 3

We may be able to learn a lesson or two from the silence of Jesus.

We see Jesus not talking about a lot of stuff.

We don’t have a lot in the Bible where Jesus spoke about politics.

How much Did Jesus speak about the disparity between the rich and the poor? Some.

But how much can we find in Scripture about social justice?  Nothing.

Greetings and farewells in the first century were prolonged.

Understand the culture where Jesus lived will give us a better understanding of our Savior.

Segment 4

Let’s continue exploring the context of the time in which Jesus lived.

Jesus wasn’t ignorant of thew ways of the world.

A Jewish father would teach his son as soon as the child could speak.

It was unlawful for Jewish families to live in an area with no school.

Jesus was educated.

GOD IS “SIMPLE”

Podcast cover

Have you heard of the Doctrine of Divine Simplicity from Kevin DeYoung? No? Tune in! Yes? Tune in anyway. Why are you being so difficult??

Wretched Radio | Air Date: September 26, 2022
https://media-wretched.org/Radio/Podcast/WR2022-0926.mp3

Segment 1

Today’s word/phrase: mental health.

From The New York Times “The term mental health is a euphemism.”

How successful has our psychologized society been at healing anyone?

Mental health is all about the individual finding a place where they are happy.

The Bible is the book that teaches us that we don’t do everything for ourselves.

How do you properly exercise discernment?

Segment 2

Mental health is political, everything is these days.

That are Christians who dedicate their lives to the political realm.

Trauma is responsible for much of the anxiety people have these days.

You have a choice in how you respond to stress, family members, spouses, etc.

Segment 3

Kevin DeYoung wrote an article:  “Why evangelicals surrender to LGBT is never a surprise.”

1. Silence.

2. Complexification.

3. Usually an explicit pivot to other issues.

4. We see more frustration with those pointing out the sin than those committing the sin.

5. The newfound enlightenment is celebrated.

Segment 4

The Doctrine of Divine Simplicity from Kevin DeYoung.

By simple we don’t mean God is slow. Simplicity means God is not a sum of His attributes.

When we think God is puzzle, we come an incomplete understanding of God.

We have to be careful we are not about one attribute over His others.

God isn’t made up of attributes, He just is.

Hyper focus on one attribute will change your hermeneutics.

What is God’s face?

If you’re in Christ, God isn’t upset with your some days and happy with you others.

Segment 1

How long will we be one nation under God?

Pete Hegseth recently sought to answer that question on Fox News.

Christianity may become a minority religion in the US by 2070.

Faith is the single most important thing we can teach and pass on to our children.

Segment 2

“We’ve outsourced our values to an increasingly Godless culture, schools, entertainment, media.”

Take a look at what happens when cultures eliminate the church.

If Pete Hegseth is correct, our cultural’s ills aren’t political.

Who influenced you as a child?

We need the view of evangelicals to shift from political to evangelism.

Ligonier Ministries releases the “State of Theology in America” every other year.

“Gender identity is a choice” according to 37% of evangelicals.

“Bibles condemnation of homosexuality isn’t applicable today” according to 28% of evangelicals.

Do some of these issues need more attention from the pulpit?

Revoice claims homosexuality can’t be repented of, only lived with and stifled.

Segment 4

There are some benefits to the monarchial system.

Where will Great Britain go now that the Queen has died?

The Queen said to Billy Graham there was no one between her and God.

By the early 20th century all states had taxpayer funded schools.

Homeschooling is on the rise.

Los Angeles recorded 50,000 students “absent” on the first day of school.

UCLA has launched a website to track attacks on CRT.

If the Bible says it’s a sin, our opinion doesn’t matter.

God will never give you up, let you down, run around or desert you.

Do not run with the world, walk with Jesus.

Church is a gift from God. Some assembly required.

Be the person your pet thinks you are.

Fall not church, God will pick you up.

You’re got friends in high places.

God can live anywhere, but prefer your heart.

If you don’t the truth, you don’t know who’s lying.

Looking for love? Love comes from God.

Wise, Discerning, Godly Content

By Ninny B27 - May 03 2020

I’m so thankful for the whole Wretched team and all the thought and care they put into their content. The Lord has used Wretched to bless me in more ways than I can express, and I’ve grown so much through listening to Todd, Joey, and Tony. No topic is too big, small, or “wretched” to be discussed and discerned while ALWAYS relying on the authority of Scripture to do so. Y’all have helped me so much in my walk with the Lord and have helped me grow in faith, knowledge, and love for him! Thank y’all so very much!

Thanks
