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.

#1 Tim Keller’s Problem Isn’t His Embrace Of Abraham Kuyper, It’s His Embrace Of Karl Marx

In this episode of Theology Applied, Chris Hwang, David McLeod, and Pastor Joel Webbon share their personal stories of how each of them were significantly shaped by Timothy Keller’s public ministry, and why each of them walked away. At first there was a temptation to reject the Kuyperian sentiment of “all of Christ for all of life,” thinking that this was vulnerability that led towards theological compromise. Over time, each of these three men eventually realized that the problem was never Kuyper, it was Marx. By God’s grace, now Chris Hwang and David McLeod are spending their lives to redeem every sphere of life - with their targets set on the Arts. To this end, they’ve embarked on a brand new endeavor called “Every Good Work” ( is an e-commerce marketplace for exclusive fine art originals and affordable studio-quality prints – they're seeking to reclaim art for everyday people again.

#2 Obesity In The Church

Christians shouldn’t be fat, especially pastors. Watch the full sermon here:

#3 Avoiding Strange Teachings | Hebrews 13:7-16

This sermon was preached at Covenant Bible Church on the Lord's Day, February 26th, 2023.

It seems as though some of the esteemed leaders within Judaism were not only continuing to require strict observance to the ceremonial laws found in the Old Covenant, but that they were teaching strange doctrines far beyond these ceremonial rituals. These Judaizers were not merely requiring the continuation of priestly/animal sacrifices but teaching that by eating the meat of these sacrifices, grace would be “infused” through food, rather than “imputed” through faith.

#4 The Gospel Coalition & Public School | “Love Your Neighbor, Hate Your Kids”

No Christian, you do not have to send your children to public school (to be shaped by a God-hating worldview) in order to “love your neighbors.”

#5 If Two Men Are Legally Married, Should They Get Divorced?

Rick Warren’s pastors can’t seem to answer this one, so we thought we’d step in. Watch the full episode here with Eric Conn:
