The Sophomore Class of the Hall of Faith
Play • 52 min

During today’s conversation on Backporch Theology we’re going to honestly discuss seasons when you feel like you’ve just flat run out of faith. I so appreciate late great church father and theologian Charles Spurgeon, who admitted there were seasons in his life when he felt like he was in a dungeon underneath a castle of despair. Perky is not a spiritual fruit, y’all but God’s Word does have a lot to say about perseverance. I think this episode is going to be especially encouraging for those of you who’re feeling like you’re in a season when the hope has all but been pummeled out of you and you’re down to the very fumes of faith. We’re going to explore the stories of several stumbling saints like Gideon and Samson whose real-life struggles give us some deeply assuring takeaways about how our Creator Redeemer responds when His sons and daughters on their last legs. So please grab a cup of coffee with an extra spoonful of sugar and your Bible – unless you’re driving or chatting with a neighbor via Morse code, of course – and come hang out on the porch with us.
