Welcome to a podcast by where we provide Bible teaching and Biblical perspective on the rapid changes taking place in our society.




109 | The fathers of atheism: How our upbringing can impact our religious beliefs

In this podcast, I discuss Paul Vitz's theory that a person's atheistic beliefs can sometimes stem from a broken relationship with a person's earthly father.


1 | Why eye for an eye mean you love your neighbor as yourself?

Many believe that Jesus's exhortation to love your neighbor as ourselves contradicts the Old Testament law that brutally spoke of eye for eye and tooth for tooth justice. In this podcast, we show how the eye for eye law was actually the foundation of Jesus's teaching to love your neighbor.


108 | Comparing actress Goldie Hawn’s encounter with an extraterrestrial with Daniel’s encounter with an angel

In this podcast, we compare famed Hollywood actress Goldie Hawn's alleged encounter with an extraterrestrial with the prophet Daniel's encounter with an angel, because there seems to be some similarities.


107 | The Sinking of a Good Luck Charm

In this podcast, I want to discuss the tendency many of us have to treat God as little more than a good luck charm. It showed up in two battles separated by nearly 3,100 years when two armies tried to use a God-good luck charm and it failed miserably.


106 | The End Times: The Day God touches the sun

FOLLOW OUR PODCAST ON (search opentheword): PODCAST In the Book of Revelation, the Apostle John’s vision of the calamitous events that will be occurring in the end times, we read of the strange thing that will be happening on Earth when God touches the sun. Hi, my name is Dean Smith and as we study the Book of Revelation, we read that God will put the world through three sets of seven different judgments. This will include the breaking of the seven seals in Revelation 6, the sounding of the seven trumpets starting in Chapter 8, and the final set, the pouring out of the bowls of wrath in Chapter 16. And within the final group, the seven bowls of wrath, we have an interesting judgment aimed directly at our sun. We read: The fourth angel poured out his bowl upon the sun, and it was given to it to scorch men with fire. 9 Men were scorched with fierce heat; and they blasphemed the name of God who has the power over these plagues, and …


105 | Divine Providence: God does not abandon us because of our mistakes

In this podcast, I discuss the concept of Divine Providence which holds that God is actively working in our lives and situations, even though we may not be fully aware of it.


104 | The Bible and UFOs: Part II — If they are not real, what in the world is going on with all these sightings?

If UFOs are not alien in origin, how do we explain the numerous sightings of UFOs, some of which seem quite credible? Could there be a spiritual explanation.


103 | The Bible and UFOs: Part I – What if they are real?

FOLLOW OUR PODCAST ON (search opentheword): PODCAST NOTES: We live in interesting times. We have atheists, who refuse to believe in God, because they claim there is no scientific evidence He exists, but according to a 2021 Pew Survey, 55% of atheists and agnostics do believe in aliens, even though there is no evidence that they exist. It seems that atheists have faith after all. They believe in little green men. Hi, my name is Dean Smith, and in this first of a two-part series, I want to address the growing controversy today — UFOs. Almost daily, we see news stories about the latest person who claims to have encountered an unidentified flying object and in a few instances actual aliens. Certainly, many people claim to have seen UFOs, but many question if aliens actually exist because of a lack of credible evidence, such as an alien spacecraft or even an alien body. One of the major themes of the mega-hit movie, Independence Day, was that the US military actually has the remains of Aliens …


102 | Is there a Bodiam Stronghold in your mind?

In this podcast, I ask, have you built a Bodiam stronghold in your mind? Bodiam Castle, located in South East England in the county of Kent, is one of Britain’s more popular castles because of its massive size and very photogenic moat.


101 | My Official Nominee for the Pharaoh of the Exodus, Along with a Recant

In this podcast, I discuss my official nominee for the Pharaoh that Moses had the 10 plague showdown with when he led the Hebrews out of Egypt to the Promised Land.


100 | Will the Spirit of Jezebel rear its head in the end times?

FOLLOW OUR PODCAST ON (search opentheword): PODCAST NOTES: Hi, my name is Dean Smith and in this podcast, I want to talk about the appearance of the Spirit of Jezebel in the end times. There is a theory circulating among those who study end-times theology, that as we near Christ’s second return we are going to see a revival of the ancient gods who once plagued Israel. This is the premise of Jonathan Cahn’s book, The Return of the Gods, where Cahn argues that we may not necessarily see Baal idols popping up around the world, but rather the spirits behind these idols will try to reassert themselves. Though these idols were typically manufactured out of wood, clay or stone to represent various gods, the Hebrews understood that there was more going on than just idol worship as there were demonic and evil spirits behind these gods. We read in Deuteronomy: “They stirred him to jealousy with strange gods; with abominations they provoked him to anger. They sacrificed to demons that were no gods, to …


99 | The Test

FOLLOW OUR PODCAST ON (search opentheword): PODCAST NOTES: Hi, my name is Wayne Johnston, and today on this podcast, I want to talk about the BIG Test. Anyone who has ever had to do a final exam in high school, college, university or tech school, knows how much fun they can be. Sick to your stomach. Headaches. Tired from cramming and OD’ing on Red Bull or coffee. But what if you were told you didn’t have to take your big final exam, and they just decided you were good enough that they were going to give you your diploma without it. Now I know personally of people who would say, ‘Wow’, I dodged a bullet and say thank you, and they would never look back. Me, maybe you, would always second guess yourself, and wonder if you really made it, if you are really well bona fide. Testing by God, may not be fun either, but it is never to destroy us, it is to prove us, even to ourselves, that we are well bona …
