192. How To Make The Bible The Foundation Of All Your Decisions.

192. How To Make The Bible The Foundation Of All Your Decisions.   There is a massive danger that Christians are not allowing the Bible to form their views and their understandings. If we only let the Bible become something we dip into, it will never have the power or authority in our lives, and then we drift towards confusion. In this episode, we look at the problem of not making the Bible the keystone for our thinking, what the consequences are, and how we move towards making the Bible this central part of our thinking.

184. Jesus Warns Us Not To Throw Pearls At Pigs - An Episode On Discernment(Matt 7:6)

I have to admit, throwing pearls at pigs has never been something I have felt I needed to worry about. How about you? Jesus uses this image as a way of helping us to see that we need to discern when someone is ready to receive the good news rather than giving away something special to someone who just isn’t going to receive it. In this episode we will explore discernment, what is the pearl and when we will know when someone is ready for it.

181. Mike Pilavachi - When an influential leader fails what do we do?

 

This is a very difficult and live issue but one to look at from a discipleship perspective. 

 

If you are someone who has been hurt by a church leader, please please please speak to the appropriate people. If they don’t listen, tell more people. Bring any abuse into the light.

 

For others of us how do we response when someone we have admired fails and is removed from ministry? Do we let our own faith flounder or do we need to so something else? In this longer than usual episode we try to explore what to do and how to respond well.

Support and contact If you would like to speak to anyone connected to this investigation or have been affected, please be assured that any concerns raised will be treated with the utmost sensitivity and support / access to counselling is available.

As we walk through the radical Sermon on the Mount, we get to ‘An Eye For An Eye’, which has often been a misunderstood passage. Here we will look at the background and what it means for us to be people who look for alternative ways of using humour to expose injustice.

In this episode, we cover a number of topics, but the main one is that of wrath. What do we do with God's anger?

Remez was a Rabbinical teaching technique meaning hint or clue. Rabbi Jesus uses this and would assume the listens know the full Biblical text. The Rabbi Jesus would quote one verse of the Bible and want you to say the next line as the real answer.

118. How To Overcome Spiritual Procrastination

118. How To Overcome Spiritual Procrastination

In this episode, Cris talks to us about the issue of 'Spiritual Procrastination' and how to overcome it. We all do it. We say "I need to know more before I can serve", or "I need go pray more before I can serve" or "I can do that later down the line" or even "I have too much going on to be able to serve". So what do we need to do to become more fruitful.

Proverbs 20:4  “The lazy man will not plow because of winter; He will beg during harvest and have nothing.”

Colossians 3:23  “And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men…”

Proverbs 26:13  “The lazy man says, “There is a lion in the road! A fierce lion is in the streets!”

Proverbs 6:9-11 “How long will you slumber, O sluggard? When will you rise from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to sleep-So shall your poverty come on you like a prowler, And your need like an armed man.”

Looking at Luke 12:13-21 we explore a story all about greed, excess and stuff. How do we build back in such a way that we are a blessing to others. What are you wanting to shape your life around?

 

Quote used: “The west is based upon a consumerism philosophy which is based upon a greed centred economy. Our enormously productive economy… demands that we make consumption our way of life, that we convert the buying of goods into a ritual that we seek our spiritual satisfaction, our ego satisfaction, in consumption…. We need things consumed fast, worn out, burned up, replaced and discarded at an ever accelerated rate.”

58. God, Gill Gates And The Greatest Conspiracy Theory

Episode 58 - God, Gill Gates And The Greatest Conspiracy Theory.

 

With the growth of online accessibility, Christianity can be a breeding ground for fundamentalism and conspiracy theories that fit within our Christian framework. Within this framework, these lies can look more convincing and the devil loves it.

Paul tells us that we need to be able to distinguish between the spirits - the spirit of truth and the spirit of lies and deception. In this Internet era conspiracy theories and lies have become more dangerous and prevalent. We are bombarded with fake news so much we can start to question even the fabric of reality and this is where it gets dangerous.

How do we wisely discern what we are reading, hearing or watching?

 

SO WE NEED WISDOM…

  1. Through SCRIPTURE
  2. Through TRADITION
  3. Through REASON
  4. And wise council.

30. Another way of seeing the Bible

Episode 30 from Season 2 titled: Another way of seeing the Bible.

We all approach the Bible with a set of questions, but are these questions enough and could there be others to ask. In this session, we look at the questions a Western reader asks and the questions a Middle Eastern reader asks. Seeing the Bible through another set of questions can really help us engage with what it says.

The Modern Western Reader

  1. Did it really happen like this, is it historical?
  2. How does it solve my problems?
  3. Are these people real, what proof?
  4. Does it fit the world we know?
  5. Do I like it?

Eastern / Jewish Reader

  1. Why did the writer tell me this story?
  2. Why did the writer choose to write it like this?
  3. Why did the writer use this word not that?
  4. How can I entre the story?
  5. What does the story ask of me?
  6. Where have I heard this story before?
  7. What does it tell me about this world that I didn’t know?

Episode 21 from Season 1 titled: Do we have to believe in sin to be a Christian?

There are some aspects of the Christian faith that feel out of date and disconnected from the way society sees the world. In the last 20 years, so many churches have stopped talking about sin. Is sin an out of date concept in a modern world or does it still have its central role in Christianity? Is it time that sin gets dropped or is it time to reunderstand it?

19. What is the meaning of being "Born Again"?

Episode 19 from Season 1 titled: What is the meaning of being "Born Again"?

In this episode, we take a term heavily used by many Christians and unpack its original meaning. The title 'Born Again' is often used to separate out 'real' Christians and the fake. Maybe we are misunderstanding what Jesus meant by this and how to use it. We will look at the original use, the greek and the cultural implications.

Episode 18 from Season 1 titled: Where is God in hard times?

In this podcast Cris is joined by Sarah Mcdonald from Hope Church and Benedict Atkins from St Matts Canning Town for a conversation about "Where is God in hard times?" We can on often make the mistake in thinking that how we feel is how things are. If you feel distant to God we then conclude we must be distant to God. Sometimes our emotions and feelings lie to us. In this episode we explore the topic of suffering, hard times and where is God.
