This week Chris and Rich take 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, Chris and Rich discuss a hit-piece article published by Baptist News Global against Texas pastor Tom Buck. Christians must be aware that even just "reporting the facts" can be manipulated to lead readers to predetermined conclusions. It is the Christian's duty to ask questions about what is being said and what is being excluded.

This week, Andrew Rappaport of Striving for Eternity joins Chris to discuss how Christians need to consider what is the source of their authority when they engage in conservative politics. Are the end goals of political activism more important than God's Word and what compromises do we make when we ally ourselves with secular conservatives?

This week, Rich and Chris continue their discussion of the compromises BigEva makes with the world. Ecumenical partnerships with false religions and ideologies for worldly gain must be avoided in the Christian walk. No social or political gain is worth corrupting the purity of the gospel.

This week, Chris and Rich look at recent examples of unbiblical attitudes and practices (as evidenced by persons such as Ed Stetzer, Beth Moore, Russell Moore, David French, and others) which demonstrate the "BigEva" machine is not an institution ordained by God. Christians must return to submitting to the one entity and institution ordained by Christ Himself, the local church.

Let's take a trip back to 2016 when Chris and Rich interviewed Pastor Nate Pickowiz about his book, "Reviving New England."  Pastor Nate reveals to the church that the key to reviving the land of which once birthed revival in America, and even in the nation itself, lies in the faithful preaching and exposition of Scripture.  In a time of spiritual deadness, life comes only by the Word of God.

Looking back at last year when Chris and Rich discussed the incarnation of Christ, His sinless life, His sacrificial death, and the all-important topic of the resurrection. Christmas is meaningless without the resurrection, as there would be no forgiveness for sins.

This week, Chris and Rich respond to objections raised to Chris' article "Should We Platform Survivors to End Abuse in The Church?" Some readers questioned if the article sought to silence victims, if the Bible was truly the best source to treat trauma, and who is the church platforming? Chris and Rich seek to answer the objections biblically and with grace in a topic that can often be controversial.
