Cogitations e92: about a dangerous trend

9/17/2019
More
Based on a couple of articles I have read recently, this podcast is on how one views the authority o the Bible. Do you think the Bible allows everything it doesn't expressly forbid? This dangerous way of thinking is showing up more and more in sound congregations and then causing them to be unsound.

Cogitations e89: about commonly used Bible passages

9/11/2019
More
Have you ever heard someone say, I don't like to use that passage to teach that because folk use it all the time?" Why would frequency of use dictate whether or not we use a passage? Is the Word of God limited in power so we can only use certain passages a finite number of times? Hopefully you will enjoy this episode of Cogitations. Let me know what you think.

Cogitations e88: about shooting our wounded

9/10/2019
More
There seems to be an epidemic of vitriol and adversarial interactions between folk who should be brethren. The remedy for this is empathy. This is taught in Scripture. Sometimes when one is fallen instead of taking the time to restore we simply destroy. We shoot our wounded. take a listen to this episode of Cogitations and see if you feel the same way.

Cogitations e86: about disfellowshipping

9/7/2019
More
Disfellowshipping is not church discipline nor is the principle scriptural. What is scriptural? Does the Bible tell us what church discipline is and looks like?

Cogitations e84: about the Pharisees

9/5/2019
More
In this episode I talk a little about the Pharisees. Namely, about their legalism or self-righteousness. Were they actually legalist? They were certainly self-righteous as Paul, the apostle, said. Hopefully you will enjoy this episode. Also, I make a mistake in this episode. Normally I leave the mistakes in there but this time was different. I actually just get something wrong. It happens, I am human and not inspired. Anyway, I hope you will forgive the janky edit and correction. Tomorrow's...

8/29/2019
More
This is the second part of the episode from the other day. The questions on the table is, does God do miracles today. Many think that those who teach that He does not put Him in a box. In this episode we show this to be opposite and that those who teach that God performs miracles are actually the ones putting Him in a box and limiting His magnificent power.

Cogitations e79: about water baptism

8/28/2019
More

8/26/2019
More
This episode is an answer to a listener question. How do we start a conversation with a complete stranger about Jesus? Well, we don't.

Cogitations e76: about withdrawal of fellowship

8/23/2019
More
This episode is in answer to a question posed in the We Talk Truth group. It was intended to focus on withdrawal of fellowship of the guilty party in a divorce situation or from a couple who were in an adulterous relationship but ended up being a podcast about church discipline in general. All the principles can be applied to anyone in sin who is trying to set themselves forth in the community as in a right relationship with God through Jesus.
