Ep. 47: Interview with Kevin Butcher on Finding Freedom from “Try Harder” Christianity

Ep. 47: Interview with Kevin Butcher on Finding Freedom from “Try Harder” Christianity

April 6, 2021
Noah interviews his friend and mentor Kevin Butcher about his new book Free (available April 6th). 
 
Are you weary? Trying to follow Jesus and be a “good Christian,” only to hear the voice of shame whisper, try harder?

Good Christians are supposedly known for diligently practicing spiritual disciplines like Bible study, prayer, evangelism, and serving God. Disciplines that are expected, through inspired effort, to conquer sin in us and in the world. The tragedy is, so few Christians understand that we aren’t just sinful but wounded. We don’t need a list of disciplines. We need a Healer, a Deliverer to come and set us free.

Here is the truth: We have a Healer. His name is Jesus Christ. He loves us. His calls us first to own how desperate we are—for him; and then to accept his invitation to abide in his great love.

Kevin Butcher points us toward this healing Jesus, who offers us his all-encompassing love. You will find nothing here about lists and shoulds. Instead, you will discover how to fall in love with Jesus and then how to walk with him—not in drudgery, but freedom—abiding in his love. A love that rescues us from drudgery and shame, surrounding us with joy even in our darkest hour. A love so powerful that it births our worship, obedience, and willingness to surrender all to him.

Even when hell is at your doorstep, the love of Jesus will surround you, protect you, empower you, and set you free. Because God’s love isn’t just important to your journey—God’s love is everything.

Ep. 44: Satisfying our unending appetite of insecurity with the unending love of our Father

February 20, 2021
Noah opens up about his own insecurities and brings the Flip Side back around to how to tap into the love of our Father to satisfy our deepest longings. These longings manifest themselves in our sexual brokenness and desires, as well as more subtle things like our unending longing for more social media follows, likes, and statistics. Noah talks about his recent struggles as an author in these areas and focuses the episode around the reminders he, and listeners, need to hear regularly from God's spirit about how we are His beloved sons and daughters. His love is the only thing that can satisfy these cravings, but it's something we have to continue feeding on over and over again.

Ep. 41: Interview with Wesley Hill on Covenant Friendships as a Biblical Path of Love for Celibate Gay Christians

Ep. 41: Interview with Wesley Hill on Covenant Friendships as a Biblical Path of Love for Celibate Gay Christians

January 17, 2021
After wrapping up the Flip Side Book Club's reading of Spiritual Friendship, Noah interviews author Wes Hill on the book's subject of providing a path of love for celibate gay Christians. A path that still follows the Bible's command for sex to be within the marriage of a man and a woman. The interview talks through the different labels of "same sex attracted," "gay Christian," and "gay celibate Christian," the theological question of original sin as it relates to same sex attraction, but is primarily focused on helping celibate gay / same sex attracted Christians have hope and in helping the Church create community for them.

Ep. 38: Jesus’ Love for the Outcast & how this Grace Transforms Each of Us

November 18, 2020
Episode 38 takes us to a recent sermon Noah did on Luke 7:36-50, where a "sinful woman" anoints Jesus' feet with her hair and tears. This interruption of an elite dinner party led a Pharisee, Jesus, and this woman to have to each make a crucial choice. Their choices are choices that each of us face as well. As our nation attempts to recover from a divisive election, this message brings clarity to what ushering in God's Kingdom looks like in the here and now.

Ep. 34: Interview with Todd A. Wilson on a biblical theology for sex, marriage, and LGBTQ+ issues

August 17, 2020

Noah sits down to talk with Todd Wilson about God's design for sex within marriage between a man and a woman--balancing the need to hold on to biblical truth while holding on to biblical compassion for those who identify as gay or as same sex attracted.

The topics of gender dysphoria, transgender issues, homosexuality, pornography, and sex outside of marriage are all discussed. Also discussed is how the Church must do a better job in talking about sex and in providing a supported lifestyle path of community for those who are committed to living a single, celibate life.

Dr. Todd Wilson is the Co-Founder and President of the Center for Pastor Theologians and the author of multiple books, including Mere Sexuality. Mere Sexuality was a recent Flip Side Book Club read where Noah and podcast listeners interacted through the book's contents at https://www.noahfilipiak.com/category/the-flip-side-book-club/

The heart of this topic comes from the social media and political climate we are in where it has become very difficult to have civil and loving conversation with people you disagree with. We also look at way the Church goes too far in being partisan or to the other extreme of avoiding biblical issues that happen to be political. 

 

Preston Sprinkle (Ph.D.) is an international speaker and a New York Times bestselling author, who’s written a dozen books including Embodied: Transgender Identities, the Church  & What the Bible has to say, and People to Be Loved: Why Homosexuality Is not just an Issue. Preston currently serves as the president of The Center for Faith, Sexuality & Gender, an organization that equips Christians to engage questions about faith, sexually & gender with theological faithfulness and courageous love. Preston also hosts the popular podcast “Theology in the Raw” and posts regularly on his YouTube channel “Preston Sprinkle.”

He went on to be a 4-year starter at the University of Dayton (3x all conference), as well as a career in professional basketball.  He currently is a radio commentator for the University of Dayton basketball team and the founder of and recruiting coordinator for Brooks Hall Basketball Consulting, helping high school basketball players get college scholarships.

Ep. 26, Interview with Nick Stumbo: Going from a pastor looking at porn to Director of Pure Desire Ministries, helping others find freedom

Ep. 26, Interview with Nick Stumbo: Going from a pastor looking at porn to Director of Pure Desire Ministries, helping others find freedom

February 17, 2020

Nick and Noah talk through the desire that is underneath the desire to look at pornography, and how the only real way to find freedom is to have that desire met in legitimate ways. Listen in to find out what those legitimate ways are and how you can get past the "every time is the last time" mentality toward pornography and sexual sin. The "legitimate ways" of meeting our deepest desires applies to any area of struggle you may be facing, not just pornography.

Nick is the Executive Director of Pure Desire Ministries. He has been in leadership for 15+ years. He was in Pastoral Ministry at East Hills Alliance Church in Kelso, Washington, for 14 years. Nick has a Bachelor’s in Pastoral Studies from Crown College and an MDiv from Bethel Seminary. He has authored two books, Setting Us Free and Safe: Creating a Culture of Grace in a Climate of Shame.

Pure Desire provides a safe place for hope and healing for men, women, and students impacted by sexual brokenness. Through group resources, counseling, events, and partnerships, men, women, and students can develop sexual integrity, restore broken marriages, and establish healthy relationships.

Ep. 24, Interview with Tyler St. Clair on dealing with the grind and insecurity of pastoring + race & the Church

Ep. 24, Interview with Tyler St. Clair on dealing with the grind and insecurity of pastoring + race & the Church

January 17, 2020

Noah interviews Tyler St. Clair on his church planting journey in the inner city of Detroit, MI. Tyler is the lead pastor of Cornerstone Church Detroit in Detroit, Michigan. He also serves as the network lead for Church in Hard Places in Acts 29’s S. Midwest Network. Tyler talks about dealing with the grind of pastoring and church planting, and the insecurity that most pastors deal with in wanting larger ministries or more recognition. This insecurity is similar to what every person faces in that we all look for something to give us our value, approval, and acceptance...all the things Jesus offers to us in the gospel when we know we our identity as the Father's beloved sons and daughters.

December 31, 2019

The first annual State of the Podcast talks about the Flip Side Podcast Survey and some upcoming improvements to the podcast.  Topic of the day is how to live for Christ in this messed up world. How to stop from being gradually assimilated into the world's way of operating, particularly around the around of sex, but also in how we view Scripture and our overall worldview. 

Noah's Rant addresses the "shake a hand with a neighbor" time during many church services.

December 2, 2019

Ep. 21 talks about depression, and depression within the Church specifically.  Why we don't talk about it enough and why we need to talk about it more.  And in general, the Church's hesitation to talk about anything that is vulnerable or deals with our struggles.  

Noah's Rant gets into how much people say "like," including Noah himself, and offers you a chance to earn a $1 every time Noah says "like" on the podcast from here on how (legal fine print: starting in episode 22!)

November 15, 2019

Noah catches up with Jason Redoutey on how encountering the affirming love of God satisfied Jason's lifelong quest for approval and affirmation.  A quest that led him to a double life of porn, lies, womanizing, and cheating in his marriage.  Shame was once the ruler in Jason's life, shame that has been replaced by love and grace, found through vulnerability.  Jason now helps other men find this same overwhelming love of God as one of the directors of Hearts, Alive, and Free.

Ep. 13 (or 75) Community as Step 2 of the Father’s Love Healing Our Shame

Ep. 13 (or 75) Community as Step 2 of the Father’s Love Healing Our Shame

July 18, 2019

The last few Flip Side episodes have had the theme of the Father's love healing our shame.  Shame being the feeling that we aren't good enough, that we don't measure up.  Last episode focused in on what truths to remind ourselves of (vs. the lies of shame).  This episode follows up with the key step 2 of the process, and that is having brothers and sisters in Christ who model the Father's love to us.  We take a look at what this looks like, including opening up the mailbag to hear how people have experienced this in real time.  The mailbag entries also give some thoughts about church small groups.  Noah then weighs in on what he thinks of church small groups, and gives listeners a layered plan for finding healing community in their lives.

Episode 12 provides a practical path to walk to fill the hole inside of us that screams out for approval and to be told we are valuable.  We typically attempt to fill this hole with sexual sin and fantasy, as well as anything from money, our reputation, to our last three Facebook posts.  

Noah's Rant describes why it would be better if robins were extinct.

Ep. 11 (or 73) Interview with Kevin Butcher on shame, suicide, when God doesn’t heal us, suffering, ministry burnout, & the Father’s love

June 17, 2019

In episode 11 (73), Noah interviews Kevin Butcher, Noah's identical twin, give or take 30 years.  Noah and Kevin are both 8's on the Enneagram, ENFP's, D's on theDISC, church planters in the inner city, entrepreneurs, authors, and podcasters... look out!  Kevin's similar wiring to Noah has made him a great mentor.  Kevin is the executive director of Rooted Ministries, a nonprofit designed to come alongside isolated and discouraged pastors.  If that describes you, reach out to Kevin at www.rootedministries.co

Kevin was a lead pastor for 35 years - most recently the founding and lead pastor of Hope Community Church of Detroit, a messy fellowship of human beings from every kind of racial, economic, and educational background who own their emptiness and pursue healing through the love of God in Jesus Christ.  In 2018, after 16 years at Hope, Kevin launched and became the executive director of Rooted Ministries, Inc.

Kevin is passionate about helping believers live in authentic community — across racial, socioeconomic and all lines of division — learning to truly love one another in the chaos of real relationships, learning to celebrate our differences, and learning to stay together even when we don't like one another – so that the world will see a living picture of Jesus Christ.

He is also passionate about helping believers find healing and freedom from childhood wounds — the ones that often keep us trapped, living addictively and in deep dysfunction – unable to experience true freedom in Christ. Kevin has come to believe this kind of deep healing comes only through personal, transformational experience with the powerful love of God in Jesus Christ.

June 11, 2019

Episode 10 discusses the June 2nd scenario of Pastor David Platt praying for President Donald Trump from the stage of a McLean Bible Church worship service.  You probably already have lots of predetermined feelings about this, so rather than write something that will make you listen (if you agree), or dismiss this (if you disagree), go ahead and listen and see if there's a different way to approach topics like this than you are used to.  

And a tragic day in Flip Side history, there is no Noah's Rant!  This turned into a "double episode" length-wise so sit back, catch some corn, and enjoy!
