On this edition of leftovers, we respond to a listener's question: "Something I have been puzzled by is how could an organization like the Southern Baptist Convention have so many leaders and pastors involved in sexual sin?

With the rise in popularity of TV shows like The Chosen, we thought it would be good to have a discussion about whether or not Christians should watch TV shows that depict Bible stories.

In this episode, we discuss the different beliefs Christians have in regard to creation. As believers, we all agree that God created everything, but was it a literal 7-day creation?

For the very first time, we have a guest on the podcast. Pastor Keith Foskey joins us to discuss whether or not Jesus could have sinned while on earth. We all agree as Christians that Jesus did not sin, but was it a possibility for Him to sin or not? Why does this even matter? Pastor Keith gives us what he believes to be the most biblical answer to…

We've already discussed angels, so it's only natural that we now talk about demons. There are so many misunderstandings about fallen angels and as a result, there seems to be a great amount of fear associated with how we view them. Should ee fear them? Who are they? Where do they come from? What do they do? Can a believer be possessed by a demon? W…

Let's face it, we've all had at least a few times in our lives when we've pictured angels that look like a "Precious Moments" ornament.

Join us as we try to answer these questions on this episode. Sup…

Season three is all about difficult doctrines and we aren't sure if there is a more difficult one than Eschatology (end times). Ask 10 different Christians how the world is going to end and you may get 5 answers, 3 fits of laughter, and two confused stares. We want to help give you an overview of different viewpoints of the end times and help bring…

Season 3 kicks off where we will be discussing difficult doctrines. Maybe one of the first that comes to mind for many of us is the Trinity. Protestants know the Trinity to be true, but many cannot explain it biblically. So what is the Trinity, why does it matter, and how do we explain it? More importantly, does the Bible even teach it? -- Check ou…

Of course, we know the Bible is not ultimately about us, but do we read it that way sometimes? When we read stories like David and Goliath, what are we supposed to do with the characters of the story? Should we figure out which one we resonate most with and then apply the story to our lives? Is our goal to simply be more like David than Goliath? Le…

When we gather together on Sundays, who should we be focused on ministering to - believers or unbelievers? Of course, our primary focus is to worship Jesus, but should we gear the sermons, worship, prayers, etc to those who are lost or our brothers and sisters in Christ? In other words, is the Sunday worship service about evangelism or discipleship…

A current conversation happening in many Christian circles is whether or not we should be singing worship songs that are written and produced by churches or artists that teach false doctrine.

In the Season 2 finale, we dive into Roman Catholicism. It may be one of the more controversial episodes in this series but we believe it is important to discuss.

In this episode, we will dive into maybe the least known of the religions we will explore in this season, but it's one that is gaining much popularity - especially in America.

We are back! Welcome to Season 2 of the podcast where we will dive into some of the world religions/cults of our day.

In this episode, we finally conclude our series talking through the doctrines of grace by addressing probably the main theological thread running through it all - God's Sovereignty. What does it really mean when we say that God is Sovereign? What are the implications of that truth? Do we get a choice in the matter? This episode not only concludes t…

In this episode, we talk about the final of the five points of Calvinism - Perseverance of the Saints. What are the implications of the truth: once saved always saved? Isn't it prideful to be confident in your salvation? How should we think about those who seem to have walked away from the faith? We seek to answer these and other questions like the…

On "Leftovers" we take just 15 minutes to discuss important topics like this one: COVID restrictions.

We pray this helps and is an encouragement for Christians to rest in the Sovereignty of God. If you have a…

The Grace of God is a powerful thing - on that truth we probably all agree. The question is: once God displays His grace to our hearts, can we resist it and reject His Gospel? The last episode we dove into the most controversial of the doctrines of grace, and this is probably a close second on that front. As with all the others, there are misunders…

This is our first installment of "Leftovers" where we take just 15 minutes to discuss important topics like this one: The presidential election in America.

In this episode, we dive into the very controversial and misunderstood doctrine of limited atonement.

Unconditional election is a doctrine that has continued to be at the center of Christian debates in recent, modern history. But what exactly is the doctrine of election?

In this episode, we dive into the doctrine of "Total Depravity." Just how bad is our sinful nature and condition? What exactly does it mean that we are born dead in our sin?

We have gotten several listener questions about divine election and reformed theology. So we thought we would answer them by doing a 6-part series on the Doctrines of Grace. This intro episode is longer than normal episodes but contains important information that you don't want to miss as we begin this series. If you have ever wondered where Reform…

Can we just leave the study of Theology to the pastors, professors, and theologians? Aren't we just called to love God and love others? Why do we need to know these intellectual terms and doctrines? Maybe these are questions you have asked yourself before. If this is an episode that you're considering skipping over because it doesn't seem important…

In this episode, we discuss whether a true believer can lose their salvation or not. Spoiler alert: you can't.
