Why Don’t I “Feel” Saved?

Assurance is of utmost importance for the Christian. When a believer does not “feel” saved it can cause severe anxiety.

Christ-Centered Preaching (Transcript)

So many of the questions we get at Theocast come down to the issue of assurance. How do we know we will be finally saved? How is it that we have peace before God- now and in the future? We talk personally of our own experiences, make some observations about evangelicalism, and then point people to Christ and his sufficiency.

MEMBERS: Assurance (Transcript)

The guys continue the conversation on assurance by considering good works, the ongoing struggle with sin, and the work of Christ.

More Than a Feeling? (Transcript)

In this episode, the guys talk about feelings. Yes, that’s right. At a prominent evangelical conference, John Piper said that it is futile to try to define saving faith apart from feelings (link). We consider whether that is correct and the fallout of that perspective as it relates to assurance.

Comforts from the Cross (Transcript)

Sometimes we think we have understood the gospel and maybe have even gotten to the bottom of it–only to have God blow up our hearts and minds with the wonder of the gospel anew. In this episode, Jon and Justin talk about the comfort of the work of Christ.

MEMBERS: Comforts from the Cross (Transcript)

Today on Theocast, Jon and I talk about the fact that sometimes as Christians we think that we have understood the gospel, foolishly thinking we have reached the bottom and that there’s not a lot left for us to understand. Then God comes in, graciously and lovingly, and explodes our hearts and minds with the wonder, truth, mercy, and grace of the gospel. 

We talk today about comforts from the Cross; the fact that when Jesus died and said that it is finished, that he had accomplished redemption and that his glory, righteousness, merits, and life were counted to wretched sinners like us. We talk about that and its implications in the church. 

In the members podcast, we consider self-righteousness and how bad it is in the church, and how if we understand the gospel rightly then it should promote love and unity because we understand that we all have the same righteousness – namely the righteousness of Christ. We hope that this conversation is encouraging to you.

Live Q&A on Final Justification & Mark Jones

In our second ever live event, Jon and Justin talk primarily about sola fide--some of the old and new confusion around it. How do good works factor into our final salvation? We begin to discuss an article written recently by Mark Jones in which he argues that we have the right to eternal life by faith alone but we will finally possess eternal life through good works.
