The Weekly Essentials | 01-21-2022

Right Response Ministries has produced hundreds of high-quality videos/podcasts. So for your convenience, every Friday we provide a list of our top five videos for the week. Each of these videos are personally selected by Pastor Joel Webbon. He has insisted that we not merely highlight our most popular content, but the content that he believes is most vital for Christians to be convicted, emboldened, and encouraged. May God use this content to bless you richly.


The federal parliament of Canada passed Bill C-4 with the support of all political parties and no opposition from any elected member of parliament. This bill, while purporting to protect individuals from coercion and abuse in the form of “conversion therapy,” will instead criminalize Christianity in our country.

This bill’s wording is sufficiently broad to allow for the criminal prosecution of Christians who would speak biblical truth into the lives of those in bondage to sexual sins like homosexuality and transgenderism. If passed by the senate, even a mother or father who offers their children freedom from sexual sin through repentance and faith in the gospel of Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 6:9-11) could be threatened with five years in jail.

Our King is greatly displeased with our Members of Parliament for their sinful disregard for the spiritual and eternal well being of Canadians. But it is important to note that they have also committed high blasphemy by referring to biblical teaching as “myths” in this legislation. We all must therefore tremble to consider what terrifying judgments will be visited upon our nation for this bold gesture of hatred towards the most high God. May the Bride of Christ commit herself to mourning, fasting, and crying out in solemn prayer for forgiveness for the sins and worldliness in the church of Canada that have led to this calamity…

Remember that “God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7). Consider also the words of Martin Luther: “If I profess with the loudest voice and clearest exposition every portion of the truth of God except precisely that little point which the world and the devil are at the moment attacking, I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Christ. Where the battle rages, there the loyalty of the soldier is proved. And to be steady on all other battlefields is merely flight and disgrace if he flinches at that one point.” Rather than allow intimidation to mute our proclamation of the biblical truth about sexual sin, we earnestly pray that all the churches who confess the name of Christ would come together and stand in the gap at this critical time (Ezekiel 22:30).

May our King Immanuel supply you with all grace and wisdom in these matters.

In His Service,

Ephesians 4:11-16 is the text used by many Charismatics to support the idea of a “Five-Fold Ministry.” This text appears to insist that the office of “Apostles” and “Prophets” will continue until Christ’s return. So how can you defend the Cessationist position in light of Ephesians 4:11-16. Subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content like this and subscribe to our Questions podcast!


Have you ever heard a pastor say, “My job is not to do the work of ministry, but to train and equip YOU to do the work of ministry.” Here’s why that statement is unbiblical. 


In this episode of Theology Applied, Dawain Atkinson, Founder of the B.A.R. Network (Biblical And Reformed Network), provides guidance for how to create an effective Christian podcast to the glory of God.


1 Peter 3:4 says that a gentle and QUIET spirit is beautiful in God’s sight. Conversely, Proverbs 7:11 and Proverbs 9:13 say that a LOUD woman is foolish and ugly. So what does it mean for a woman to be either “quiet” or “loud”?


Unfortunately, 2021 did not provide the relief that many were hoping for. Instead of the promised return to normalcy, tyranny and deception have become commonplace. From vaccine mandates to record-high inflation, our current political elites have made it abundantly clear that they have no concern for the public. And yet, God’s goodness has continued to shine through. More and more people are waking up to reality and joining the fight for liberty and truth.

However, there still appears to be a problem. On the one hand, there are Evangelicals who claim to love the Gospel, while consistently echoing the talking points of neo-Marxists. And on the other hand, there are Conservatives that champion many Christian values, while rejecting Christ as the source of all that is good. Our world desperately needs Christians who believe the whole Bible and are committed to applying it to every area of life. From family to church, and culture to politics, we must hold fast to the sufficiency of Scripture.

This is our goal: To equip Christians with a thoroughly biblical worldview, and teach them to apply it to every area of life.

To this end, we humbly ask that you would prayerfully consider partnering with Right Response Ministries. Right Response Ministries is seeking to continue to be a voice of reason in a world that has gone mad, but we cannot accomplish this without your help.
