There is a lot of debate on the role of women in the church today. In this episode, Pastor Joel attempts to answer this difficult question.
Many of us personally know many unbelievers who seem to be good people. So how can we affirm the Doctrine of Total Depravity?
How do we resolve the tension that seems to exists between God’s sovereign election and a parent’s duty to train up their child in the way they should go? Is a child’s salvation the product of godly parenting? If not, does our parenting actually matter?
I recognize that we are not saved by our own good works, but the Bible still seems to put a massive emphasis on our obedience to God. So what is the biblical relationship between faith and obedience?
When we offer criticism we express that something is lacking and requires our contribution. However, when we offer encouragement we acknowledge that success is present apart from our contribution. This often requires a great deal more humility.
Although the Bible seems to say a fair amount in regards to marriage, it seems to say little to nothing about dating/courtship. Therefore, I have a pretty good idea about “how” to cultivate and sustain a healthy biblical marriage, but what biblical texts can I look to in order to identify “who” to marry?
