Kingdom Series Pt 3, The King of the Kingdom

Most Christians would agree that the Jesus is the king of the Kingdom of God. At the same time many do not seem to grasp the full magnitude of having a king over their lives. In this episode, through a conversation that covers the old and the new testament, we explore what it means to have a king, what type of King Jesus was and the work that he came to do.


Kingdom Series, What is the Kingdom

We are continuing our series on the Kingdom of God. In the second episode of the series we discuss what the kingdom of God is and how the definition of the Kingdom ought to shape our lives and the Church.


Kingdom Series - Introduction - Why We Misunderstand the Kingdom of God

The Kingdom of God is one of the main narratives of the Bible; yet many Christians miss its core message and its importance. There is a range of reasons why that is so. In this episode we discuss some of them; from how we tend to read the Bible, to the church culture that we may belong to. We also discuss what is that we miss on when we do not take into account the narrative of the Kingdom. Overall, this is a great way to start off what we think is going to be an enriching series for our...

How to Study the Bible - What is Wisdom



God at the Center - The Book of Psalms

The book of Psalms is a compilation of poems, songs and prayers. It tends to be a book we use for inspirational quotes and poetic language but the book of Psalms is a lot more than that. It may be the perfect book to teach us how to put God at the center of everything.


The Point of Acts is the Spirit

The book of Acts is a Historical Narrative but we tend to read it as more than that. We tend to approach the book of Acts as if it were a blueprint for church. Although we can learn a lot about church from Acts, the driving force of the book and the most dynamic character in it is the Holy Spirit. Join Ryan and Rodrigo as they discuss how the point of Acts is the Spirit.


Demystifying the Prophets

We tend to approach the Prophets with some degree of mystery. This is in great part due to the fact that they tell the future and are the voice of God. Is this mystery, however, appropriate to the prophets role and message. In this podcast we try to take the mystery away from the prophets in order to help you understand them better and ultimately get to know God in a deeper way.


Not What We Are Used To

The Bible is an ancient document. As such elements of literature like the narrator is different than what we are used to. Something else that is different is how these narrators portray their characters. Understanding how they are different is an important part of reading the Bible in a deep way.


Ether Talks - Church not Church

Figuring out how to do church is hard. There are many things to take into account especially when we consider something like Sunday service. We can spend a lot of time and energy figuring out how to welcome people, what songs to sing, how to address the people who come in late. All of these things are good but is planning and structure the best way to address things like hospitality? Minister, Chris Haddock joins to talk about this and other issues that we easily label as church matters, but...


Ether Talks - Conflict in Marriage

Carma Kuhn, a certified Mental Health Counselor who specializes in marriage, joins us to talk about how to arrive at an actual place of forgiveness in marriage. Join us as Carma shares her expertise on a subject that most of us think we know but we actually don't. If you are married you'll want to listen to this one.


Biblical Genres - How To Study the Bible Series

We read books, we listen to music, we watch TV shows and movies all the while keeping into account the particular genre they belong to. Genres set our expectaions and help us understand what we are consuming. The Bible has genres as well, each with its particular features that should set expectations and help us understand what we are reading. However the majority of us are not aware of Biblical genres and therefore we end up missunderstanding or missinterpreting Scripture. Starting with...


Bible Hermeneutics - How to Study the Bible Series

The Bible, although an ancient document, is relevant to us today because it applies to our lives. How it applies to our lives is a more intriguing and complicated question. The process of answering this question is called hermeneutics which is the next topic in our How to Study the Bible series. In this episode of our podcast we took Galatians 5, exegeted and then tried to answer the question, "How does this apply to us today?" Listen as we interpret this Biblical passage and attempt to...


Ether Talks - Gospel Centered Discipleship

As Christians we can live lives that are ritualistic. We know things we have to do to be faithful, the places we need to be and the times we need to show up at. This can create a life in which we are constantly wondering, "Am I doing enough?" This is the place in which Keith Winship, minister at the Clemson Foothills Church, found himself in. A place that unintentionally led him to live a life in which he was constantly pursuing God's favor and never felt like he did enough to earn it. Over...

Ether Podcast: Challenges of Reading Scripture

The core message and story line of the Bible are simple to understand, at the same time reading the Bible has its challenges. Especially when we take into account the range of consequences in interpreting the Bible incorrectly.
