(12/7/18) Episode 10: Interview with Damon Seacott on choosing a life of singleness and celibacy

February 18, 2019

Episode 10 brings a special guest interview with Damon Seacott, who has chosen to live a life of singleness and celibacy.  This is a great episode for singles to have someone to relate to, and great for married folks to learn how to be in community with singles and why that's so important for both.  The Church has much to learn on how it over-emphasized marriage and the damage this can do to the mission and community of the Church.

(11/1/18) Episode 9: Why Most Accountability Doesn’t Work + The Importance of Both Wings of God’s Airplane (Judgment & Mercy)

February 18, 2019

A great question from the mailbag brings up why a lot of accountability is ineffective.  Noah gives his thoughts on what you must have for accountability to work.  There's a new segment on breaking down a piece of Scripture as a guide for how to spend your daily time with the Lord.  This episode's scripture passage is Psalm 131:1-2.  The topic of the day is on the importance of emphasizing both God's wrath/judgment and his grace/mercy in order to be freed from sexual temptation.  These are two wings on an airplane and one without the other won't cut it.

Episode 8: What does the Bible mean by “One Flesh” as God’s design for sex?

Episode 8: What does the Bible mean by “One Flesh” as God’s design for sex?

February 18, 2019

In episode 8, Noah unpacks what the Bible means by "One Flesh" as it relates to sex.  Many thing "One Flesh" is talking about what happens when two people get married, but it's what happens when two people have sex.  This understanding is a big piece of the puzzle in understanding why we should not objectify people or think that sex is only about body parts.
