Sepia Jesus

Episode 8 is a special episode, where I give the listener an audio version of chapter two of my book, New: Wineskins and the Simple Words of Christ. The title of this chapter is: Sepia Jesus because I believe that every Christian comes to faith in Jesus with various traditions and preferences that filter his or her view of Jesus and His teachings. Jesus, however, calls us to make Him the lens by which we view everything else. If you’re blessed by this episode, I’d really appreciate it if you’d leave an honest review on my iTunes channel, Reclaiming the Faith. Also, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at my website, reclaimingthefaith.podbean.com. Or email me at emailphilsbaker@gmail.com. I’m blessed to be a part of Justen Faull’s 4th Watch Radio Network along with BDK of Omega Frequency, who I do a monthly Q&A show with called Ready with an answer. In addition to our own channels, you can find each of our podcasts at the 4th watch radio website or on the 4th watch radio podcast.

Giving God's Way

Proverbs 18:13 says, “He who gives an answer before he hears, it is folly and shame to him.” Particularly with episode 29, I want to encourage you to put this verse into practice. Today we will be looking at the subject of Biblical giving. How does the Bible define tithing? Did the early Christians teach tithing? What does giving God’s way actually look like? All these questions and more will be covered in this episode.

Daddy Issues & Jesus

Unfortunately, it is quite common for many of us to see God the Father through the lens of our relationship with our earthly fathers.
