Podcast 54: Tell the Truth (or At Least Don’t Lie)

God says not to bear false witness. But what’s so bad about lying? What about “little white lies”? It’s worth thinking about. Truth and reality go hand in hand…

(By the way, you’ll notice the video is less fancy this time. We were trying out a free service, but it takes a long time to upload, and since we were late getting this one up, we did it the quick way. But let us know what you’d like to see with the videos on YouTube. Filming ourselves would definitely make the process too long, but what do you prefer as a background?

Podcast 53: Five Bible Passages About Friendship

This is probably one of our most requested topics: friendship. Today, we’ll look at five passages in the Bible that teach us something about friendship. They are certainly not the only passages, and some might be surprising! But if this episode is helpful, we’ll plan on doing more on this topic in the future.

We mention a telecast (though we accidentally called it a sermon) and related article by Mr. Ames in the podcast, and those are linked to here. Below that, you’ll find the podcast, as usual, on all the usual platforms. And, by the way—if you have a favorite podcast platform that we aren’t on yet, feel free to let us know, and we’ll be happy to look into it!

Podcast 52: All About L4T—”Living for Tomorrow”!

This week, we asked Mr. Jonathan McNair to stop by and tell us all about the upcoming L4T event for adults 18–30. It sounds like a blast, and we hope you’ll sign up. Join us and listen in! And when you’re ready to sign up, just head out to MyLCG. You’ll find instructions near the top after you log in.

Podcast 51: They Came from CANADA! 🇨🇦

This week we have the privilege of sitting down with two good friends visiting from the Church’s Canadian HQ, Mr. Michael Heykoop and Mr. Javid Khan, to talk about Canada’s very vital part in God’s Work around the world and to learn a little more about their mysterious and exotic nation.

Also, in the next post, we’ll include a Canadian TW telecast featuring Mr. Heykoop and a TW Viewpoint featuring Mr. Khan, so you can do the creepy pause-and-stare thing we talk about in the podcast. And, when you’re done, watch the programs! They are excellent.

The podcast is available below in the usual formats: YouTube, Spotify, and Apple Podcasts. Enjoy!

Podcast 50: How Romans 1 Explains the World Around Us

Romans 1:18–32 does a pretty thorough job explaining why our world is terrible—and the thinking you need to avoid to prevent falling into the same trap. And it’s a trap being laid for the young, specifically, more than anyone else. Don’t fall for it!

Podcast 49: Who in the World Are You Guys, Anyway?

A lazy podcast at the end of a very busy week, but still hopefully a helpful one! A listener asked us to explain our work backgrounds and what brought us to where we are today, so we jump in and answer. And, still, there are opportunities to model biblical thinking. We hope you get something out of it, and for those in the middle of the Days of Unleavened Bread, we pray that the Festival is a profitable one for you!

(Also, we talk in the podcast about the change in the magazine format that the Church made ten years ago next month. We’ll add a post about that after this one.)

Podcast 48: The Poisonous Power of Blame

We’ve all done it. Adam and Eve did it! But it’s not helpful.

Blaming others. It blinds us and twists our thinking. But there is real power in “owning up” to our mistakes, errors, and sins. As the Spring Holy Days approach and we are all examining ourselves, let’s consider the effect of blaming others for our choices and aim at doing better.
