This week, we’ve got a new feature for you that we’ll hope you’ll love as much as our other features. We’re calling this one Potluck. And on these episodes, we’re going to cover biblical mini-topics that aren’t really long enough for their own, individual episodes, and don’t fit into any of our other features. Join us as we discuss discernment, accountability, discipleship materials for teens, Ecclesiastes, and more!

What happens when speakers add their own opinions and worldly cultural influences to the Word of God? The examples we are sharing are not from Word of Faith or New Apostolic Reformation services, but from the other end of the spectrum - the Progressive Christianity movement. Join us as we "talk back" to the Progressives with what the Bible really says.

Hollywood marriages last about as long as peanut butter cups in a bowl full of raisins. Not much of a shelf life, and not based on Christ.

The Bible has a lot to say about what "real" marriages look like. With more than 60 years of marriage experience between them, Michelle and Amy discuss biblical love and godly marriages, and what they've learned.

In this episode of Talk Back, we discuss the brouhaha over Alistair Begg's counsel to a grandmother about attending her grandchild's "wedding". What does the Bible have to say about sexual immorality and a pastor's responsibility to teach and counsel according to sound doctrine?

Lots of people make New Year’s resolutions that tend to fizzle out within a few weeks or months. Instead, we want to introduce to you some holy habits you can integrate into your walk with the Lord. Last year’s holy habits were more about private sanctification in our own one on one relationship with Christ. This year’s habits are more outwardly focused on ministering to others. And one of the holy habits we want to encourage you t...

We're taking you way back into our archives today while Amy and Michelle attend to family matters. We think you'll really like this episode from October 2019, as it's one of our most popular episodes of all time: Over the last few episodes, we've been talking about the topic of discernment - how to handle things when we encounter false teachers and false doctrine. In our "Doing Discernment" episode, we took a look at how to determi...

Enjoy this throwback episode about New Year's Resolutions! We usually don't make resolutions, BUT, just for fun, we thought we'd share some resolutions we wish some of the celebrity teachers would make for 2024! As Proverbs 17:22 says, “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine." We hope you enjoy the humor in these in-jest resolutions.

 The biblical story of Jesus’ birth would look and sound - and be - very different without the important role godly women played in welcoming our incarnate Savior to earth. Tonight, we’re going to open up our Bibles and take a look at the women of the very first Christmas story - Elizabeth, Anna, and Mary - and their example to us as Christian women.

We recently aired an interview about extra-biblical revelation: “God Doesn’t Whisper, with Jim Osman".  Many of you commented and shared how the teaching that we must hear God’s voice did a great deal of harm to your understanding of His nature. In this episode, we want to share those testimonies from our listeners, and why we need to have a scriptural understanding of how God does - and does not - speak to His children.

Today, we're talking about the very important topic of extra-biblical revelation - the idea of God talking to us outside the pages of Scripture. And we’ve got a friend with us who literally wrote the book on it, Pastor Jim Osman. Jim’s excellent book on extra-biblical revelation is called God Doesn’t Whisper, and he’s going to help us understand why this teaching that God speaks to us outside of Scripture is not just extra-biblical...

We all get angry from time to time, and for most of us, our anger is usually sinful. But some Christians don’t realize that not all anger is sinful. This can be especially challenging for Christian women. Let’s take a look at anger, and what the Bible has to say about it.
