So Long 2020, Hello 2021

Everyone was ready for 2020 to be gone, but 2021 proved in the first few days to be not much different. With so much chaos in the world, it's time for believers to stop saying God is Sovereign and start believing that God is Sovereign.


New Years Resolutions

Do you make New Years Resolutions? Are they Biblical? Should we make them? These are just a few questions discovered on this brief episode of the Doctrine Matters Podcast to round out 2020.


Prosperity or Persecution

Many people want prosperity, but how many people want persecution? The Bible tells us that true believers will receive persecution. "The Church in America has experienced prosperity and is growing weaker. The Church in China has experienced persecution and is growing stronger." Are we ready for persecution?


Where have all the cowboys gone?

There is a saying that cowboys are the last of a dying breed. In 2020 it seems that men in general are the last of a dying breed. The postmodern progressive agenda has enslaved many men to it's dangerous philosophies and methodologies. Finding real men is becoming harder and harder. It's become even harder to find Biblical Men!!! In this episode I talk about men and the fight against the progressive movement.


Election Hangover

The election has not been decided. Neither candidate has won and many of you stayed up late late to hear a winner declared. With so much controversy now surrounding the election how are we as Christians supposed to respond? What do we do now? What do we do while we wait? Join us on this episode as Pastor Steven discusses the response for every believer amidst the chaos.


Election Madness and God’s Sovereignty

There is so much going on concerning the election. So many nasty things circulating, so much sadness in our nation. With election night looming, how should we react as believers? How should we feel? How do we reconcile all of this with the Sovereignty of God? Take a listen as I bring truth from the Word that will bring us peace.


The Sovereignty of God

The Sovereignty of God should bring us all comfort. What does it mean? Join me in this episode of the podcast to look briefly at the Sovereignty of God.


The Spirituality of God

We continue the character or attributes of God this week as we look briefly at the Spirituality of God.


Who is God: Self Existence (Aseity)

Over the next several episodes we will look at who God is. We will look at the character of God. There are many Pastors teaching a man centered theology that is void of who God truly is. The goal is to briefly dive in to each attribute of God that is easy to understand and help promote further study and turn the direction from man to God. Today's episode is centered on the Self Existence of God, also known as the Aseity of God. Fell free to send any comments or questions to...


How Far We’ve Fallen

Remember after 9/11/2001 when all of the Churches were filled for a few weeks? What happened? How far have we fallen, and why? What must we do? Listen to the latest episode as we remember 9/11 and look to the future.


Sex and the American Church

Many of us have heard about the Netflix documentary called, "Cuties." Many of us have seen the swift push to normalize pedophilia. We see sex everywhere we look. How did we get here? Can the Church have some blame for this? On this episode I talk about what I believe was the start of a new sexual revolution in America and look at the Churches response over time. I hope you are challenge and encouraged by this episode.


Until He Makes All Things New

Our world is in complete and utter chaos. Things are happening every single day, and they seem to be piling up one on top of the other. On this episode I talk about what we do as believers until Jesus Christ comes back and God makes all things new.


Rolling Back the Reformed Lingo

Can too much of a good thing actually be a bad thing? On this episode of the podcast I talk about the reality of talking too much about being reformed in our theology, or the Reformation, or the reformers. If we aren't careful we could be a stumbling block to our community as well as some of our own members. Take a listen to the podcast and let me know your thoughts. Feel free to email your thoughts, questions, or concerns to


Sovereign in the Chaos

There is so much chaos in our world today. Although it seems confusing, God is not the author of this confusion and He remains sovereign through it all.


The Reality of Public School and Home Schooling

Public School is part of the arm of the government. Many public schools are told what to teach. There are many questions to ponder. Are they trying to indoctrinate our kids? Are their faithful teachers? Should you home-school? These are just a few questions we must answer. On this episode I help walk through some of the issues and offer my own families struggle with public school and moving to home-school our kids. This will eventually be a controversial issue, but for now, take a listen and...


John MacArthur is Ready to Go to Jail

Dr Steven Lawson was with Dr. Macarthur several days ago. Yesterday he said at our conference “John is ready to go to jail”. The American church has difficult but amazing times ahead. I don’t think these officials know that of all the preachers they could have went after they picked the wrong guy. Macarthur is a warrior. You may not agree with him on every point of theology but he is a lion.


Persecution, Judgement, and the Remnant

This episode comes to you from the road in Conway, Arkansas after a lecture from Dr. James White at Grace Bible Church and Grace Bible Theological Seminary. Dr. White talked about a coming persecution which should make us think about what we, as believers, will do when this persecution happens. Will we stand firm, or will we bow the knee to the culture and society? Along with persecution, God will judge the Unites States of America for murdering babies and it's rampant sin on a daily basis....


Lets talk about Francis Chan and Todd White

Both Francis Chan and Todd White have said some things lately. Let's take a look at what each of them have said and how we should respond.


Pastors, Pandemics, and Repentance

Many pastors are continuing to make decisions in the midst of a pandemic. How will you support your pastor, elders, and leadership during this difficult time? Todd White has also claimed to repent. What should our response be as believers? Find out on this episode of the Doctrine Matters Podcast. Todd White Repenting:


Christ Not Caesar

A large Church in Southern California defied the governors orders to not gather as the Church. Were they right or wrong? What would you do? On this episode we get into gathering as the Church during a pandemic, as well as our response to Churches like Grace Community as well as others in our own city.
