The Faith of the Fathers w/ Karl Gessler

The Faith of the Fathers w/ Karl Gessler

Who's your Daddy? Does it matter? I lost my father when I was only 23, but his impact on me and my faith has never stopped. Now that I have become a father, I see how rich an inheritance my father left me. But I am an anomaly in today's Western World. Many men have little to no example of what it means to be a man of God. Where can the fatherless be fathered? The Faith Of The Fathers brings you honest discussions about what it means for a man to follow Jesus. Heroes of the faith, ancient, modern, and contemporary, will share their wisdom and experience. And you will receive practical, straightforward answers about God, the Bible, Life, and Fatherhood. You can be the man of God your sons will want to imitate. The Faith of the Fathers will help you get there.

Millions of Christians do not fully believe in God's love. In fact, no living Christian fully believes in God's love because the Bible says, "There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear," 1 John 4:18 NASB.

Every human has some level of fear, so we must conclude that we also have a measure of unbelief in God's love. One tell-tale sign that you lack faith in God's love is the presence of th...

A sensational event people call "the Rapture" has consumed the imaginations of Christians and quite a lot of non-believing onlookers for two hundred years and counting. But this has been true for only the previous two hundred years, which begs the question, how did the Church interpret the "rapture scripture" before that? After all, only ONE scripture supports (supposedly) the idea of "the rapture." We...

Is it possible to love without being hurt? I recently saw an advertisement for a class that proposed a way to experience "Love without pain." Many Western people have put their faith in this modern Buddhist myth, but it leads to disaster. Though pain may seem overwhelming at times, the value of real love is worth it. Let me explain in today's podcast.

So many Christians object to deliverance ministry, for Christians, that I need to address it yet again. There is a flaw concerning fundamental Christianity in the opposition to deliverance ministry, and I want to point it out today. Christians sometimes offer the most significant resistance to the revival of the Church today.

Many Christians believe that God predestines our futures, while pagans promote Satan as the champion of liberty. Who is the champion of freedom? The Devil comes to steal, kill, and destroy, and he often sneaks right into the camp of the people of God to do it. Sometimes, the Devil is in the details of our theologies. But the God of the Bible is the true champion of freedom.

Many Christians struggle greatly with the fear of Hell. But if you read the Bible without the extra-biblical, preconceived notions, you will find that Hell does not feature prominently in the story of the Bible the way many pastors and teachers believe it does. What happens when we let the Bible tell its own story? God's justice remains, but the obsession with Hell disappears.

A young woman who grew up in a church that taught John Calvin's doctrine of predestination once told me, "I believe in it, but I don't want to talk about it." My response is that if the Gospel is good news, we should want to talk about it. If what you are told is "the Gospel" is oppressing you, something is amiss in the teaching or the comprehension.

Calvin's doctrine of predestination may be popul...

Who am I? Gifts we gladly receive are little packages of information to us and about us from people who in a position above us.
