Podcast: Dating and “Good People” in the World

This week’s podcast focuses on another question we’ve received: What’s so wrong with dating “good people” in the world? It’s a great question! And both the Bible and, when you really think about it, common sense provide important answers. We hope it helps, and we hope our sound quality continues to improve! Again, your feedback is so helpful. Please let us know what you think.

Also, we don’t mention an article or booklet in this episode, but an old classic by Mr. Gerald Weston came to mind—an old 2006 Tomorrow’s World article written for the “Tomorrow’s Youth” feature, in which he included six of his “Unshakable Unbreakables.” Great advice worth reviewing—or reading for the first time for most of you, given it was published almost 16 years ago!

Podcast: What Gives Us the Right to Be Dogmatic?

This week’s podcast answers a question emailed to us from a Church family. The father—who grew up as a teen in the Church, himself—pointed out that, when he was younger, he would sometimes wonder what gives the Church the right to speak so dogmatically. After all, we speak pretty strongly! We draw clear lines about right and wrong and make no bones about it—and those lines differ greatly from the lines being drawn by many in the world around us. So what does give us the right to speak so dogmatically? It was a great question, and we hope you’ll find the answer helpful!

As usual, we refer to some additional items in the podcast—one LCN article by Mr. Mark Sandor about “doubtful things” and one of our foundational booklets, The United States and Great Britain in Prophecy. Below the embedded video, you’ll find links to both.

(By the way: We hope you enjoy the improved sound quality! We’re still learning, but our Disclaimer Guy (Chris Leonard) is also our wonderful IT guy, and he has helped us put together a better audio set up. Let us know what you think, and thanks for your patience as we continue to learn what in the world we’re doing.)

Podcast: Why a Second Holy Day at the End of Unleavened Bread?

We hope your Days of Unleavened Bread have been wonderfully flat, tasty, and spiritually profitable! This episode of the podcast has us meditating on the question of why God might have included a second high day at the end of the Days of Unleavened Bread and some (not all!) of the lessons He might want us to take from the events of that amazing Exodus event, thousands of years ago, connected to this day. We pray it’s profitable for you! (We refer briefly to the previous podcast about Passover thoughts concerning youth in the Church. That’s available here.)

Podcast: So, if Christ has a tattoo, can I get one?

Today’s podcast features a novel take on the age-old question of tattoos! Does Revelation 19:16 imply Jesus Christ had a tattoo? And if so, does that mean we can get one?

The answer is straightforward, but there’s more to consider, starting with a follow-up question: Why do you want one?

We hope you enjoy the podcast! And afterward, you might want to check out a related oldie-but-goodie: Dr. Scott Winnail’s Living Church News article “Body Ink: What Does God Think?” (Clicking the link should open it in a separate tab so you can keep playing the podcast.)

Podcast: Christians and the Constitution

Many in the world want to distract you from what God wants you to do with your life by pointing you to their political causes, and some of those causes can seem attractive and can pull us away from Jesus’ standard, stated when He explained “My kingdom is not of this world.” People are throwing around words like “freedom” and “liberty” out there, but how do you think about those words and ideas biblically? We hope this episode of the podcast can help with that.

On this second podcast recorded during Mr. Mark Sandor’s visit (well, second attempted, first recorded), we spend time reflecting on the U.S. Constitution, our relationship to it as Christians in America [which is hopefully helpful to our non-American brothers and sisters, as well!], whether “getting back to the Constitution” is really sufficient to save the country [Spoiler Alert: It’s not. But why not?], and viewing the freedoms we have through the lens of our responsibilities before God.

As mentioned in the podcast, part of the spur for this discussion was Mr. Gerald Weston’s excellent article The Bible vs. the U.S. Constitution” in the March-April 2022 Living Church News. If you don’t have the print version, you can click on the title there to read it.

Podcast: Proverbs 26:4–5 — Answer or Don’t Answer?

The second podcast with Mr. Mark Sandor should be up next week after it’s been edited and prepped for uploading. In the meantime, this week’s podcast is about Proverbs 26:4–5, based on a question we’ve received: Are we supposed to answer a fool or not answer a fool? Listen and find out!

Podcast: Studying History with Your Brain Turned On

Why are there four gospels? How do you study history? How do you even read history, especially the history of the Bible? What should teens and young adults keep in mind as they study history in school and at a university? And just what is the name of the last king of Judah, anyway? (We know it starts with a “Z”…)

Join us on the podcast as we talk with Area Pastor and admitted history nerd Mark Sandor about keeping your brain turned on when reading or studying history, biblical or otherwise.
