A Theology of Thanksgiving

Do you have a theology that includes thanksgiving all year long? Even in the worst circumstances or the direst of situations?

God wants His people to be thankful to Him, not just because He deserves our thanks, but because it is good for us to be thankful. It helps us fix our eyes on all He has done for us – from the greatest gift of all, giving His precious Son to save us from our sins.

Michelle and Amy wish you a Thanksgiving filled with gratitude and kindness. We are thankful for each and every one of you!

Biblical Women’s Ministry – Part 1

The local church is one of the greatest blessings God has given us as Christians. We get to fellowship with our church family, teach and disciple one another, pray for each other, help each other, and sharpen each other. How can women do this in their local churches?  Michelle and Amy begin a two-part series on women’s ministry. In this episode, you’ll learn how to make sure your women’s ministry is biblical. In part two, we’ll talk more about the practical aspects of women’s ministry.

Should Women Vote?

In this episode, Michelle and Amy talk about an interesting discussion that’s come up in recent months about how the 19th Amendment came to be, and how the women’s suffrage movement was born out of feminism.

Now that many theologically conservative Christians and social conservatives recognize this, some have wondered aloud if our nation should go back to a head-of-household voting system in which the husband casts his ballot on behalf of his family.

Why We Celebrate Reformation Day

Did you know that October 31 is Reformation Day? It’s a time when Christians recognize and even celebrate a huge, game-changing event in our history more than 500 years ago: Reformation Day commemorates the beginning of the Protestant Reformation. Yet many Christians today are unaware of this landmark incident in their heritage which birthed the Protestant church. Michelle and Amy reprise this discussion from 2020 about the commemoration of one of the most important events since the closing of the canon of Scripture.

Christians: When Halloween Comes Knocking

Halloween is a multi-billion dollar celebration marked by witches, ghosts and goblins, candy and parties.

Not all Christians take part in Halloween. Some have taken a step back to rethink this tradition, and they have changed how they look at Halloween. Others say they honor God through Halloween by making it a Christian outreach — a time to share the Gospel with the lost. Still other Christians say we have the freedom in Christ to dress up in costumes, attend secular or church-based festivals, and take their children trick-or-treating.  In this episode, Michelle and Amy take a look at where these traditions come from and what the Bible has to say about Christians and Halloween.

Disney, Dalai, or Divangelista?

Social media and the internet are a gold mine for inspirational quotes, and today’s most popular celebrity Christians post a lot of them. But, does inspirational always equal biblical? Shouldn’t you be able to tell the difference between a line from a Disney movie, a platitude from the Dalai Lama, and biblical truth from a Christian leader?

The Pew – Debut!

In this episode we’re launching what we hope will be a regularly recurring feature here at AWFS. We’re calling it “The Pew.”

On each episode of The Pew, Amy and Michelle will collect a few trending topics that we’ll share and react to. Kind of like a non-annoying, Christian version of The View – all of the Joy, none of the Behar. But, unlike The View, we don’t want to focus too much on worldly carnage, because our main focus should always be on Jesus and what our God says to us through His Holy Word.

What Has Christianity Come To?

In this episode Amy and Michelle ask, “What has Christianity come to?” There is an interesting study called The State of Theology survey that’s done every two years by Ligonier Ministries, and it has just released its latest findings about what Christians believe about God, salvation, ethics, and the Bible. And it seems like professing Christians have “shifted” their beliefs – and not for the better – since the pandemic.

Worship! – with Laramie Minga

When we’re talking about the corporate worship of the local church, we tend to use the word “worship” synonymously with “music” or “singing”. Is this accurate and biblical? What is worship? What about the role of women in the worship? Our listeners sent in their questions! Sharing his expertise is our guest Laramie Minga, the pastor of worship and discipleship of Woodlawn Baptist Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

What is a so-called “secondary issue in doctrine?” And does women preaching and having authority over men in the congregation fall in that category?

Preventing Abuse in the Local Church

The issue of abuse in the church has been back in the spotlight recently, due in large part, again, to the Southern Baptist Convention. For the past year, the Sexual Abuse Task Force has been looking into how allegations of sexual abuse at Southern Baptist churches were handled by the SBC’s Executive Committee. In this episode, Michelle and Amy discuss ways to prevent abuse from happening in your church.

Womenary (Women in Seminary)

Is it biblical for women to attend seminary? If it is, what kinds of classes and degree programs should be open to women? Michelle and Amy discuss what Scripture has to say on whether it is biblical for women to attend and/or teach in seminaries.

Correction from Michelle: I misspoke in this episode. It was Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (SEBTS), not Southern Seminary (SBTS) that recently conferred a pastoral ministry degree upon a woman. My apologies.

What would you do if:

  • A man dressed as a woman comes to your ladies Bible study?
  • A friend was experiencing some kind of demonic oppression or possession?
  • The only place large enough to have your loved one’s funeral is in an unsound church?
  • A homeschool mom’s husband dies, and she is considering going back to work and putting her kids in public schools?
  • Your pro-abortion family members want to engage with you in a debate?

Michelle and Amy seek wisdom from Scripture to discuss biblical options for scenarios like these.

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

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.

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.

  • Do you happen to have a teaching on the book of Job?
  • Could you touch on the book “redeeming love” being made into a movie?
  • How as a disabled stay at home mom can I be more of a servant of God?
  • I am divorced because of abuse, am I still able to go to heaven?
  • What does forgiveness really mean biblically?

Abortion Abolition with Brett Baggett

Sunday, January 23, is Sanctity of Life Sunday. Michelle and Amy cover – quite literally – a deadly serious topic: the abolition of abortion.
Did you know that there’s a big difference between being an abolitionist and being pro-life? 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?

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?

Christmas Dinner with the Sexual Sinner

How should a Christian relate to someone in their lives who is obviously living in sexual sin, without appearing to condone this marriage? Thankfully, God does not leave us without answers. As with every other issue in life, our thinking, our words, and our actions must be shaped by and in submission to the authority of Scripture. Not public opinion. Not political agendas. Not our own personal feelings, opinions, and experiences. Scripture.

Christian Liberty

What is Christian liberty? On many issues, the Bible is crystal clear with no room for debate. Those are “thus saith the Lord” kinds of things. On other issues, the Bible gives us room for differing interpretations. And sometimes the Bible is virtually silent on decisions we face in our lives, and we have to use godly wisdom and draw from biblical principles to inform our consciences and prayerfully make the most God-honoring decisions we can. Michelle and Amy explore what Scripture has to say about Christian liberty.

Santa Pause with Justin Peters

What do we tell our children about Santa Claus? Our special guest is Justin Peters, an expository teacher, author, minister, and husband to wife, Kathy. Justin’s book and video, “Santa Pause” reveals a dark and even demonic history through the ages of this carnal Christian character, and in our present time he is celebrated as a kindly and omnipresent/omniscient old man who generously gives gifts – if you are morally good, that is. Justin shares his thoughts on the effects of lying to our children, and where Christian liberty may or may not play a part in our Christmas traditions.

Winter Is Coming! Are You Prepped?

No matter where you live, these winter months remind us that preparing for whatever comes our way in the freezing months ahead is a good thing.  Sometimes we can get so wrapped up in preparedness that it can become an idol. We have a God whose plans, whose providence, whose will is not going to be thwarted.

A Theology of Thanksgiving

Do you have a theology that includes thanksgiving all year long? Even in the worst circumstances or the direst of situations?

God wants His people to be thankful to Him, not just because He deserves our thanks, but because it is good for us to be thankful. It helps us fix our eyes on all He has done for us – from the greatest gift of all, giving His precious Son to save us from our sins.

Michelle and Amy wish you a Thanksgiving filled with gratitude and kindness. We are thankful for each and every one of you!

Twisted Complementarianism

If you aren’t familiar with the term “complementarianism,” it simply means “the biblical roles of men and women in the home and in the church.” It’s also a term that has been twisted into something else. Complementarians like Michelle and Amy believe men and women are both made in the image of God, and equal in value to Him. However, we have some wonderful, ingenious differences in the way God wired and equipped us. We also have different roles in the home – the husband is responsible for leading, and the wife is responsible for being his helper and submitting to his leadership. In the church, it is the responsibility of biblically qualified men to serve as pastors, elders, and deacons, to preach and teach the Scriptures to men and any co-ed adult groups, and to fulfill positions of authority over men and co-ed adult groups.

That’s Enough! The Sufficiency of Scripture

Have you ever thought God was talking to you in your mind? Maybe a friend has said, “God told me such and such,” or “God showed me something” in a dream or a vision. Does God speak to people audibly today like He spoke to Moses, the prophets, and a few others in Scripture?

All of those ways people think God is speaking to them are called “extra-biblical revelation” – things that God is supposedly revealing to them outside the pages of the Bible. But as Michelle and Amy share what God Himself tells us – in the Bible – that He communicates with Christians through His sufficient written Word.

Celebrating Reformation Day!

Did you know that October 31 is Reformation Day? It’s a time when Christians recognize and even celebrate a huge, game-changing event in our history more than 500 years ago: Reformation Day commemorates the beginning of the Protestant Reformation. Yet many Christians today are unaware of this landmark incident in their heritage which birthed the Protestant church. Michelle and Amy reprise this discussion from 2020 about the commemoration of one of the most important events since the closing of the canon of Scripture.

What Would You Do?

Remember the ABC reality TV show from a few years ago called “What would you do?”Or the board game called “Scruples?” Christians can often find themselves in all sorts of sticky situations. We might try to use the world’s wisdom to figure out what we’d do in different scenarios, but a better way is to use a biblical foundation and wisdom from God. In this episode, Michelle and Amy ask each other, “What would YOU do?”

Pull over – it’s the Tone Police

A lot of Christian women seem to have the mistaken idea that “speaking the truth in love” equates to being “nice.” We should always be smiling and sweet and never say anything that might hurt someone’s feelings or could rock the boat.
