This week we look back at when Chris and Rich discussed the issue of food hoarding and prepping. While often associated with the Mormon church, many people, including Christians, store up mass quantities of food and water in preparation for times of difficulty. Is this a biblical precept? How should Christians view it?

This week, Chris discusses the conservative argument that we cannot address hypocritical or sinful behavior on the part of our political allies because the need for victory outweighs the need to hold them accountable. Should Christians practice this ideology?

This week we look back at when Chris and Rich walked through 1 Peter to encourage Christians to live righteously in a time of tribulation and persecution. Walking in holiness is a living testimony to the excellencies of our Savior.

This week, we revisit Chris and Rich taking on the ever-present argument that Christians need to be winsome and nuanced on social issues lest we offend the lost. Is this biblically true or are the pitfalls Christians need to be aware of?

This week, we revisit Chris and Rich's discussion that when Christ came into the world, He came among the lowest of society. There is no barrier to any rank or social status to have access to God if they come in the manner He has prescribed.

In a solo episode this week, Chris discusses three mini topics covering sexual immorality, fighting on social media, and humility in serving Christ, which all point to a single issue - we should always seek to live our lives in a way that honors and glorifies Christ.

This week, Chris and Rich have a little fun discussing the topic of "high strangeness," a popular term for stories of mysterious animals, UFOs, ghosts, and more. While demonstrating how much that is reported is the product of misidentification, hoax, or natural causes, and some things defy explanation, they encourage Christians to not take their eyes off of Scripture when confronted with these matters.

This week, Chris and Rich address a number of posts made by former Saddleback Church Pastor Rick Warren on the eve of the SBC Annual meeting. Warren's efforts to influence the Meeting are quite evident as he attempts to manipulate SBC members with posts intended to inflame passionate emotions. Christians need to be discerning of such tactics.

This week, as we prepare to enter "Pride Month" in America, there are those who declare it is more important to be loving than theological. However, when we rightly understand Scripture, we recognize there is no biblical love in pride.
