How Does the Holy Spirit Lead Us?

Sometimes when we say the Bible is sufficient to guide our lives, the question arises, “What about the leading and guiding of the Holy Spirit? How does that fit in with the doctrine of the sufficiency of Scripture?” There are so many theories and teachings about this third person of the Trinity that it’s no wonder so many people are confused about who the Spirit is, and what He actually does, and does not do.

If you’re not quite sure what it means to be lead by the Spirit, this podcast episode will clear things up – thanks to what the Scripture teaches about the Holy Spirit.

Church was never meant to be remote: Reuniting after COVID-19

Right now the vast majority of us are having to watch worship services online. And even though many of us miss fellowshiping with our brothers and sisters, we can get a little too used to the routine of sleeping a little later and plopping down on the couch with a good cup of coffee to watch church. We might even be tempted, once quarantine is over, to keep “going to church online.” Michelle and Amy discuss the importance of faithfully fellowshiping with the Body again once this is all over.

Isn’t the Gospel enough?

Christians believe the Word of God is inerrant; that it’s true, and that it is without error. But do you believe it is sufficient? Or are you looking for something more? More exciting, perhaps? Did you know that the Bible is all we need to equip us for a life of faith and service? The doctrine of the sufficiency of Scripture is a fundamental tenet of the Christian faith.In this episode Amy and Michelle explain why this doctrine is so important to understand and embrace.

Glad You Asked! Sarah lied?, COVID-19 & church, and more!

Welcome to another “Glad You Asked” episode! Here are the listener questions we’ll be answering this time:

  1.  Since Sarah is held up to us as a woman we should strive to emulate, was she right to follow Abraham’s instructions to lie about their relationship to Pharaoh and Abimelech?
  2.  Are Believers violating Scripture by not gathering for Sunday services and other church events during COVID-19 quarantine?
  3.  How should I address a female “pastor” who introduces herself as “Pastor Beth or Joyce or Lisa”?
  4. God is bringing me out of New Apostolic Reformation heresy, but my husband is still deeply entrenched in it. How can I cope and minister to him?

We’re always collecting questions for the next Glad You Asked episode, so drop us an e-mail or social media private message with your questions any time!

“But you’re a girl!” Addressing Objections to Discernment – Part 1

“You say that this female Bible teacher is in disobedience to Scripture because she preaches to men. You’re just as guilty because you have a blog and social media pages that men can read!”

In this episode, Michelle and Amy take on a common objection to naming false teachers, and that is the idea that women ought not do podcasts, blogs or post on social media if their content has Scripture. Nonsense! Tune in and find out why.

“But did you go to him in private?” A look at Matthew 18

Have you ever had to confront a brother or sister in Christ about their sin against you? In this episode we are going to examine a section of the book of Matthew, in chapter 18: “If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone.” But does this apply in every situation? Nope. One of the biggest misunderstandings of applying this particular scripture to how we are to talk and warn about teachings that are not biblical is the idea that we need to go to the teacher first, in private.
