Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 7 of The Berean Manifesto, brought to you by the Ekklesian House. This is Pastor Bill and over the next 10 minutes or so we are going to talk about tithing.

I don’t ask you to send in money on this podcast, we don’t even take up an offering at The Ekklesian House fellowship meetings. We are a non-profit whose finances come one hundred percent from donations, but our...

Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 5 of The Berean Manifesto, brought to you by The Ekklesian House. This is Pastor Bill and over the next 10 minutes or so we are going to continue our holiday trilogy by taking a look at the Maji’s gift of Myrrh. Remember it was prophesied in Micah 5:2 that Jesus would be born in Bethlehem and the verse ends with a note of secrecy or mystery to it as to why He exists and is being born.

Including a few verses later in Ephesians 4:31, “Let all bitterness,...

Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 1 of The Berean Manifesto, brought to you by The Ekklesian House. This is Pastor Bill, and today we’re going to look at one of Paul’s most popular statements, and it’s really a paraphrase; actually, less of a paraphrase and more of a rephrase, “To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.” This statement comes from 2 Corinthians 5:8, I’ll read it in the King James so you can see it’s not just the translation I’m using, it says, “We are...
