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

We didn’t wait to have sex until we were married, and shocker… We didn’t burn in hell immediately! So why wait until marriage to have sex then? Bryan Sands joins us to talk about his new book “Everyone Loves Sex: So Why Wait?” Gone are the days of passing the roses around and shaming the youngins into not having sex. Enter in a fresh redemptive, restoring, gospel centered perspective from Bryan. We discuss our failures, our poor theologies, and how God redeems us and sex!

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 #9: 64 - Doomsday and the Nazi Locust Army Hiding in the Hollow Earth

Podcast cover
Read more
THE END IS NEAR! At least here is what happens when you mix modern day conspiracies with the biblical evangelical eschatology… Once Johnny B Good-christian reaches that last remote people group with the gospel, the Christian population is going to slip into an alternate dimension with Jesus. Meanwhile, chaos will erupt on earth, earthquakes are going to shake apart the neglected and tortured floating ball. As people are trying to cope with the dramatic climate change, a secret post-Nazi government with a human/robot hybrid army will come on the clouds and cease the remaining population and take them by storm. The whole world will succumb to a single seemingly nice dude who provides goods and services for his followers so long as they identify with him by taking his number. As he’s sitting upon his giant commerce empire the inhabitants of earth will be forced into the labor of cleaning up the disaster of all that left behind laundry and rebuilding a mock temple so he can have one final throwdown with God. It will take 7 years, and then he’ll be destroyed by Jesus, and the earth and all who have ever lived, will live happily ever after.

We hope you enjoyed the show! Let us know about our favorite conspiracies, for super shady links to poor rabbit hole information, please visit our website.
