When Peter denied Jesus three times, he went out and wept bitterly. After Jesus resurrection, He asked Peter a simple question three times: "Do you love me more than these?" Could there be more to this than a simple question? Join Jonathan and guest Haden Ayers talk about John 21, and the simple question with a profound message.
As members of the body of Christ, we have an eternal reward of salvation waiting for us, but in our anticipation of it, there is a task of high demand: holiness. Join Noah and Jonathan as they discuss what holiness is and what it is not (a "holier than thou" attitude). Additionally, they'll talk about the opposite of holiness (sin) and the mechanics of holiness (the how and the why).
When a Christian shares the gospel with others, the Biblical pattern to become a Christian is completed with baptism in water for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38, Romans 6:3-4, 1 Peter 3:21). There are some who question the necessity of baptism. When pressed about the Biblical necessity to being baptized, some often turn to the thief on the cross.
The common argument is that the thief on the cross did not have to be baptized. If he didn’t have to be baptized, then why do we? If one person can be in Paradise without baptism, are those who preach baptism as necessary making the gospel “too difficult” for others to follow? This podcast episode offers three Biblical points to help clarify the narrative of the thief on the cross, his crucifixion conversion, and the gospel pattern of salvation.

How can a Christian live by the Spirit? Join Jonathan Edwards and Bob Loudermilk discuss Galatians 6:1-10 as they consider some practical, faith-building concepts based on the simple example of a harvest.
Peace. It’s what we are all after. How do we get it? Why has it been difficult to obtain in life? Is it really so elusive to all mankind or are there some individuals that have found it? How, indeed, can we have peace?
Those who keep the law of God in their hearts and obey it in their actions add peace to their lives. Rather than seeking peace as an end, we should seek to follow Christ. When we do we will find that peace comes as a side effect that we receive from Him.
Where does a Christian begin when trying to explain the supremacy of Christ? Why Christianity over skepticism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam or Secular Humanism? There are four questions that demonstrate that Christianity is the most reasonable worldview. One does not have to be an expert on world religions and philosophies to present an adequate defense of the gospel. If you can answer “YES” to these 4 questions, then Christianity is true and it’s the only view of the world that correctly explains: who we are, where we came from, why we are here, and where are we going.
Aubrey Ballard joins me today to discuss the New Testament's teaching on alcohol. The Bible commands about abstaining from alcohol are pure and simple. That doesn't mean that it is always easy to accept, but when we are willing to consider the Scriptures, the conclusion that we read is simple to understand.
A Bible chain for abstinence from alcohol that we're discussing today includes: 1 Peter 4:3-4; Luke 12:45-46; Ephesians 5:18; 1 Thessalonians 5:7; Acts 24:25; 1 Corinthians 9:25; 1 Peter 5:8; 1 Timothy 5:23.
