Pro Life or Abolitionist? With Brett Baggett

Did you know that there’s a big difference between being an abolitionist and being pro-life? Michelle and Amy cover – quite literally – a deadly serious topic: the abolition of abortion. In this “throwback episode,” our guest is Pastor Brett Baggett, who will help you understand the difference and also encourage you to get involved in the fight against abortion, so that you can make up your mind: Are you pro life, or do you want to abolish abortion?

Why We Won’t Stay Silent

In recent times many women who speak truth are told they need to be silent, and not “criticize” anointed teachers who “occasionally” teach something opposite of what Scripture says. Amy and Michelle have both been sounding the alarm for a number of years about wolves in sheep’s clothing, and we’ve been pointing to God’s Word as the only source of truth by which all teachings must be measured. We do it because so many people have come from abusive, apostate churches and need to hear. In this episode, we discuss why we can not – MUST NOT – stay silent.

Titus 2: Teach What is Good?

Does Titus 2: 3-5 really say that women should not be teaching doctrine to – or sharing the Gospel with – other women?

Michelle and Amy were guests this week on Voice of Reason, a podcast by Chris Honholz and Richard Story, to discuss what seems to be a new twisting of Scripture: a wave of legalism that seems to be gaining momentum, especially in Reformed circles.

It tells us that women are not to be teaching other women anything about holiness or doctrine, and that any woman teaching another woman Scripture – whether it’s one-on-one over coffee, in a women’s Bible study or at a women’s conference – is being disobedient to God and in danger of becoming a feminist.

Change the Direction – With SBC Presidential Nominee, Tom Ascol

The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), has its share of challenges, as some of its member churches and even some of its leaders have embraced women preachers, critical race theory, and more. Can this ship be turned around in the right direction?

In this episode, Michelle and Amy interview Tom Ascol, the pastor of Grace Baptist Church in Cape Coral, Florida. You may know him better as the head of Founders Ministries, and as an anticipated nominee for president of the Southern Baptist Convention.

Roman Catholicism: Mass Confusion

Do you have loved ones who are Roman Catholic? Many of us wonder how we can talk about our differences with our dear ones in love and truth. Amy and Michelle cover eight different theological areas of Roman Catholicism that – when we hold these teachings and practices up to the light of Scripture – we run into big, deep problems.  We also share how some celebrity pastors and conference speakers and authors are actually encouraging their churches to partner with the Catholic Church in unity, and why this mustn’t be.

All the Single Ladies

What does God’s Word have to say about being single? A lot! A Christian woman who is single, regardless of whether she never married, has been divorced, is widowed, etc., can honor God in her daily life just as any married woman can. Unfortunately many single church members say they are treated as second-class citizens by their church families.

Love And Marriage

Hollywood marriages last about as long as peanut butter cups in a bowl full of raisins. Not much of a shelf life, and not based on Christ.

The Bible has a lot to say about what “real” marriages look like. With more than 60 years of marriage experience between them, Michelle and Amy discuss biblical love and godly marriages, and what they’ve learned.

Glad You Asked – January 2022

It’s another interesting episode of “Glad You Asked,” a chance for you to ask us questions about where we stand on theological issues. Amy and Michelle believe the Bible – what God’s true, breathed-out Word says – trumps any opinions we may have!
In this episode we cover:

  • How should a christian wife respond when her husband abandons her?
  • What is biblical femininity (not womanhood)?
  • How can new Christians be equipped to train up their children?
  • What to do when church members block you on social media?
  • If a church’s worship team leads in songs from Bethel or Hillsong, etc., is that grounds for looking for a different church?
  • I was recently diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. Is this just sin?
