2.26 - Armor 1 of 3 - Put On

5/19/2019
More
Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 26 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 kick off a three-part series focusing on Ephesians 6:11, “Put on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the schemes of the devil.” The term here, "Put on" is the word: G1746 ἐνδύω enduō en-doo'-o From G1722 and G1416 (in the sense of sinking into a garment); to invest with clothing (literally or...

2.25 - Hope

Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 25 of The Berean Manifesto, brought to you by The Ekklesian House. This is Pastor Bill and over the next 10 minutes or so, probably under that, we are going to talk about hope. On The Berean Manifesto podcast, we spend a lot of time talking about love and covering topics that fall under the category of faith, but we don’t really spend a lot of time talking specifically about hope. Romans 5 tells us that hope is produced or created. Verses 3-4 read,...

2.24 - The Corruption of Morality

Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 24 of The Berean Manifesto, brought to you by The Ekklesian House. This is Pastor Bill and over the next 10 minutes or so we’re going to talk about the corruption of morality. We start this conversation by asking the very simple question “Why were Adam and Eve removed from the Garden of Eden?” “Due to sin.” “Because of sin.” “Cause of sin.” “For sin.” “Oh… I don’t believe that.” “I don’t know.” “Eve tempted him with an apple.” “For eating...

Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 23 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 love. At this point, I don’t just sound like a broken record, I am a song on repeat. And I will keep repeating this message until I take my last breath or I’m caught up in the air at Jesus return, whichever comes first. That message is summed up by 1 Corinthians 13:13, “These three remain: faith, hope, and...

2.22 - Rooted and Grounded

4/21/2019
More
Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 22 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 take a look at our foundation as believers. In Luke 6 and Matthew 7 Jesus teaches about two men who built houses. One built on the sand and when the storm and flood came it collapsed. The other man built his house on a firm foundation and when that storm came, the house withstood the assault. In this analogy, Jesus...

2.21 - Easter '19

More
Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 21 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 Easter. Often at Easter, we focus on the retelling of the events of the crucifixion and the resurrection, which is good. It’s crucial that we retell Biblical events to each other often so they are never far from our hearts and minds. We did this last year with our daily devotional leading up to Easter, but...

2.20 - Step Out On The Water

4/7/2019
More
Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 20 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 stepping out on the water. Of course, for most people, the first thing that comes to mind is Peter stepping out on the water at the behest of Jesus in Matthew 14:22-33. We can gather more details about this event from Mark 6:45-56, and John 6:16-24. I’ve already included these extra details in what I’m...

2.19 - The Berean Manifesto

More
Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 19 of The Berean Manifesto, brought to you by The Ekklesian House. This is Pastor Bill and since The Berean Manifesto is celebrating its two year anniversary this week I thought it would be good over the next 10 minutes or so to have a refresher on where the podcast got its name from and what it means. A manifesto is a public statement of the views, beliefs, motives, and/or intentions of a group or organization. So for what this is, manifesto fits...

2.18 - A Little Story of Faith

More
Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 18 of The Berean Manifesto, brought to you by The Ekklesian House. This is Pastor Bill and over the next 10 minutes or so I’m going to tell you a little story. In 1997, I went on a summer missions trip to Thailand. We encountered a lot of religious people, mainly Buddhists. But, when we ventured outside of the cities, into the wildernesses and the jungles we found an overwhelming amount of people who didn’t even have a concept of what a God was....

2.17 - But What About Sin?

3/17/2019
More
Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 17 of The Berean Manifesto, brought to you by The Ekklesian House. This is Pastor Bill, and today we’re going to talk about sin. In Genesis 4:7 it’s recorded that God said, “If you do what is right, won’t you be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at the door. Its desire is for you, but you must rule over it.” Let’s start out by asking, “What is sin?” I once heard a man say that sin was religions way of controlling people....

Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 16 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 follow up season 2 episode 15 and ask the question, “Now what?” Ok, so if you're just joining The Berean Manifesto for the first time or you missed season 2 episode 15 then you’re going to have to go back and listen to or read it to get some context for this episode. Christianity is not an Authoritative religion as...

Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 15 of The Berean Manifesto, brought to you by The Ekklesian House. This is Pastor Bill and over the next 10 minutes or so we will be wrapping up our two-part series looking at The Bible and Christianity with regards to the definition of the word “authoritative.” If you remember from the last episode, when you Google the word authoritative you end up with four definitions, the two that sum it up that we’re concerned with are: (of a text) considered to...

Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 14 of The Berean Manifesto, brought to you by The Ekklesian House. This is Pastor Bill and over the next 10 minutes or so we’re going to be looking at the authoritative word, in this case the Bible. When you Google the word authoritative you end up with four definitions, the two that sum it up that we're concerned with are: (of a text) considered to be the best of its kind and unlikely to be improved upon. proceeding from an official source and...

This is Pastor Bill and over the next 10 minutes or so we’re going to be wrapping up our series ruffling feathers and challenging preconceived ideas. This week we’re talking about the Bride of Christ. And as it turns out, the feathers being ruffled and preconceived ideas being challenged are my own. But that’s how this works, right? I go on and on about not interpreting scripture to...

Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 9 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 holiness, pearls, dogs, and swine. There’s this passage in Matthew that I’ve read repeatedly over the years that the last verse of seems misplaced. It’s chapter 7:1-6, “Do not judge, so that you won’t be judged. For you will be judged by the same standard with which you judge others, and you will be...

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.

We are a non-profit whose finances come one hundred percent from donations, but our...
