010 | Empathizing Honestly
Allie Stuckey is known by some as "the conservative millennial." She, like many, weighed in recently on how our country, in particular Christians, are responding to the riots occurring in some of the major cities in response to the killing of George Floyd by a Minneapolis Police Officer. Here is what she wrote, "What we hear is that black Americans are targeted by white police officers. That there is systemic racism in teh police system. That, as Lebron James said, black people are being hunted by white people. And Christians repeat these talking points because we want to be empathetic. We want to "mourn with those who mourn." But compassion at the expense of truth is not compassion. You are not loving people, you are lying to them. This is a sin (Colossians 3:9) Colossians 3:9 says, "Don't lie to each other, for you have stripped off your old sinful nature and all its wicked deeds."

009 | Flattening The Fear Curve
As the nation begins to reopen one of the challenges many are facing is trying to find the balance between acting responsibly vs. acting out of fear. I think this is an incredibly important topic for us as believers to be wrestling with as we are now trying to flatten the fear curve. In light of this new curve involving fear, I wanted to invite a group of guys to join the podcast today to think through the question – How do you know you are being fearful vs. responsible?

008 | The Purpose of the Gathering
If we can have church online, why should we gather? Is church the worship music and the sermon? If so, we can easily “go” to many churches all across the United States and beyond. Yet many of us may be sensing that something is missing. This has caused me to ask myself, “what is the purpose of gathering?” Philip Jenkins comments on how this crisis will affect the church by thinking through the idea of secularization, “Do recall that secularization does not necessarily mean a decline or destruction of faith or belief as such. Rather it means a decline of religious institutions, and a decisive shift in religious practice to individual and privatized forms. It means the loss of belonging, not necessarily believing – although in the long run, it is very difficult to maintain the one in the absence of the other.” The crisis has not caused the thinking that faith is private, it has simply enabled it. This is was what John Stonestreet called a “preexisting condition” of the church before Covid-19. In order to shift back to the values of believing and belonging, we must recapture the purpose of gathering.

007 | The Judgment Seat
The Day of judgment is when Christ will judge the quality of His servants’ work (2 Cor. 5:10). It is not a question of salvation which is a gift (Rom. 6:23), or a matter of individual deeds (Eph. 2:8-9), but of service which is judged on the basis of quality, not quantity. Considerable apparent success can be had by hint of human effort and wisdom (cf. 1 Cor. 2:4), but unless it is empowered by God in accordance with His plan it cannot last (Ps. 127:1).

006 | Suffering, World Events, and the End Times
It seems whenever there is a global catastrophe, a political movement, and many kinds of large-scale events, Christians begin wondering if this is the end times? This is the study of eschatology (Two Greek words: eschatos, “last,” and logos, “the word,” meaning, the doctrine of the last things.) As Jesus says, we are to keep watch. Other than the fact that Jesus will return, Christians disagree on when and how He will return. These various views affect the way Christians approach suffering and how they interpret world events. Passage: Matthew 24:42-44

005 | The Role of the Enemy in this Pandemic
Christians tend to swing between two extremes; to credit all bad events to the direct work of the devil, or to explain bad events through natural causes. The current pandemic has brought those two extremes to the forefront. The enemy is very much at work in the world right now, but we may struggle with how much credit to give him.

004 | The Government and Our Response
In the current pandemic, many Christians may find themselves struggling with two Biblical principles: 1) the Biblical command to submit to the governing authorities, and 2) when it is civil disobedience appropriate? This tension cannot be resolved easily, and it requires thought and prayer. Scripture brings insights into this conversation that will bring light into a grey area.
