SAL#65 Consider One Another

Why Do You Gather With The Church? In Hebrews Chapter 10, we are instructed to consider one another as we gather together. What does that mean and how does it actually play out?

In the conversation we also look at Acts 4 and 1 John 3 to see how the early church lived this out and what the disciples taught about it as well.

SAL#59 Lions and Fires and Swords, Oh My!

They Faced Down Lions, Fires And Swords God's people are a bold bunch and it's always been that way. Whether you go back to ancient Babylon or into modern day China, they've always been willing to literally be thrown into fires rather than deny the true and living God.

They serve as shining examples...

How Jesus Viewed Scripture Much of this episode is looking at how Jesus and the Disciples viewed Scripture. We look at how it shaped their lives and their apologetic. This, then, leads us into the...
