Our idols aren’t cute; they’re demonic

You might not bow down to golden statues of God, but we’ve all magnified things in our lives that eclipse our love for the Lord. We know it’s wrong, but our hearts are prone to wander. Today Amy and Michelle tackle the tough subject of idolatry. Not only for us individually, but for churches, collectively.

Saved? How Kanye tell?

How can we tell whether or not someone is really saved? It  can be hard to tell with someone we don’t know, like a celebrity, but even with people we know personally – family members, friends, co-workers – is there really any way to know for sure? Michelle and Amy explore what the Bible says in light of true and false conversions, and why it matters.

Social Justice is a Liar

You may go to a church where you hear terms like intersectionality, and “woke.” In recent years we’ve seen Social Justice become an issue in the evangelical church where many teach that Social Justice is an essential part of the Gospel; and if we don’t understand that it’s a part of the Gospel, we don’t have the true Gospel at all.

Amy and Michelle show you through Scripture that Social Justice is not only NOT part of the Gospel. It is a serious hindrance to the Gospel. It actually sabotages the truth of God’s Word, and it uses God’s Word to do it.

How to talk to your church leaders about false teachers

Over the last few episodes, we’ve been talking about the topic of discernment – how to handle things when we encounter false teachers and false doctrine.
In our “Doing Discernment” episode, we took a look at how to determine if a teacher is trustworthy and whether or not you should be following him or her. In our “Words with Friends: How to contend with loved ones” episode, we talked about how to approach and gently warn a friend who’s following a false teacher.
But what about when false teachers or false doctrine impacts your church? What’s the right and biblical way to address it? Michelle and Amy discuss how to talk to your church leaders about false teachers.

Benny Hinn and The Fruit of True Repentance

What is true repentance? In the Bible, a tax collector named Zacchaeus encountered Christ and immediately repented for stealing and lying. What does repentance look like in the lives of believers today? It should look no different than in Zacchaeus’ life!

When prosperity preacher Benny Hinn says he repents, how do we know if it’s the real deal? Michelle and Amy dig into Scripture to look at what real repentance is and is not. Note that our program today is not so much about Benny Hinn, but about how to discern true repentance from something else. However the news does give us a good springboard into this conversation.

Top 7 Reasons the Enneagram is Unbiblical

It’s all over social media; everybody’s talking about it, and some churches are even teaching classes on using it. The Enneagram is the latest “shiny new thing” to hit evangelicalism, but is it just a harmless personality test, or is there a more sinister side to this popular fad? Today, we’ll be taking a look at the Enneagram and what the Bible has to say about it.
