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)

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.

The Dark Side Of Christianity (Transcript)

Today on Theocast, we’re going to be talking about the darkness and the evil that exists within all of us. The Christian life is often anything but clean. It’s messy. It’s hard. We’re not always on this nice, clean, upward trajectory of ongoing improvement. We’re going to talk honestly about that and talk honestly about the fact that it’s impossible to navigate the Christian life in this fallen world until we come to grips with who we really are. We’re excited to have this conversation, and we hope that it’s helpful to you. Stay tuned.
