The Weekly Essentials | 05-06-2022

In by Right Response Staff

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 ROE VS WADE MAY BE OVERTURNED! | WITH JEFF DURBIN

For decades, the Church has attempted to preach the Gospel, apart from the Law. Many Christians have declared the Church a “shame-free zone,” insisting on a “cheap grace” that never truly addresses sin. In this episode of Theology Applied, Pastor Joel Webbon and Pastor Jeff Durbin (@Apologia Studios) explain how the lawlessness of our current culture is directly tied to the “antinomianism” of the church. And what needs to happen to actually end abortion.

#2 HOW CAN WE EXPOSE THE HYPOCRISY OF BIG EVA?

Big Eva is filled with ideologues and opportunists. The ideologues eventually expose themselves, but the opportunists tend to be more sneaky. As wokeness begins to die down, Big Eva is desperately trying to find a way to pivot. How can we lovingly expose these opportunists so that Christians don’t fall for their schemes? Pastor Joel is joined by @AD Robles and Jon Harris (@Conversations That Matter) to discuss.

#3 A PRIMER ON CHRISTIAN GOVERNMENT PART 3 OF 6 | PATRIARCHY | WITH TOBY SUMPTER

13. What is the sphere and assignment given by God to family government?

God has assigned the dominion mandate to families as well, with the particular tasks of providing for the basic nurture, health, welfare, and education of individuals in the household.

14. Who are the magistrates of the family?

Ordinarily, God gives husbands and fathers primary authority and responsibility for the provision and protection of their household. Every wife and mother is the vice-magistrate of the home, assisting her husband, bearing and training up their children, and ruling her home in wisdom and beauty.

15. What does the provision of health and welfare entail?

The health and welfare of a household entail the basic ongoing material and spiritual provisions of love, care, friendship, intimacy, food, clothing, and shelter, as well as the responsibility to provide for medical expenses, disabilities, retirement, and inheritance.

16. What does Christian education entail?

Parents are required by God to bring up their children in the nurture and admonition of Lord Jesus. This is the task of teaching children to love God with all that they are in every area of life all day long, but it is also the broader task of handing down the skills, loyalties, and spiritual and material inheritance necessary for the household to successfully replicate itself over generations under the blessing of God.

17. What sanctions has God given to the government of the family?

God has given parents the authority to discipline children in the love of Christ, both in positive encouragement and with the use of the rod of correction. Ultimately, if a child persists in rebellion and unbelief, Christian parents have the responsibility to disinherit him.

18. What is the duty of all people with regard to the government of the family?

It is the duty of all people to honor their father and mother, that their lives may be long in the land. All people are also required to honor the marriage bed and consider it and the blessing of children among the highest gifts given by God to men, and the basic building block of human society.

#4 PREACHING DIRECTLY TO THE BABY MURDERS IN GEORGETOWN, TEXAS

#5 ROE VS WADE OVERTURNED | CALLING OUT BIG EVA LEADERS BY NAME WHO STOOD IN THE WAY!

Praise God! Roe vs Wade is crumbling! But the fight is not over. It is now simply state to state with legislation, and heart to heart with Gospel preaching. The way it always has been! The veil has finally been lifted. Thankfully, enough Christians chose to ignore Evangellyfish like Timothy Keller, devoted Marxist and registered Democrat, who continually assuaged people’s consciences to vote for Democrats. And we’ll now finally see which individuals in the “Pro-Life Industry” actually wanted to abolish abortion and who was just pretending.

A SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM PASTOR JOEL WEBBON

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.
