Maybe you’ve heard of it, churches claiming supernatural occurrences of gold dust and feathers falling from the ceiling and precious stones appearing during church services. The most notable place of occurrence being Bethel Church in Redding, CA. Since we have no direct reference for any of this in the bible, what are we to make of it? How do we know if it’s real?
We start the conversation off this week discussing continuationism vs. cessationism. Basically, do we believe the apostolic gifts held by the New Testament apostles are still prevalent today? Is there a biblical case to be made for these incidences? And most importantly, how does it affect our belief of the Gospel if we chose one position over the other? Join us this week as we break down these events in the charismatic church and what we believe scripture teaches.

Our first episode on the Five Solas begins with Sola Fide and the concept of justification by faith alone. We skim the surface of the Protestant Reformation and then dive head first into the need and means of justification by faith. How does this concept differ from that of the Catholic Church? Why is it important to think through our theology on concepts outlined by the Solas? What are some prominent false teachings that threaten a biblical view of justification? And possibly most important..... Why didn't people like our last episode on music, movies, and sports? We hope you listen this week as we seek to answer these questions and explore one of the foundational concepts of Christianity.
This week the Thieves are digging in to music, movies, and sports! As Christians it’s incredibly easy to get sucked in to entertainment that panders to a broken culture. The fight to be in, but not of the world is a daily battle (John 17). In living a life seeking to honor God, what types of entertainment should we be enjoying? What harm does it bring to a Christians life who watches and listens to anything they please? But probably the most important question we answer….. Is Frozen based on the Gospel? Join us as we find out!

We wrap up our series on Christian apologetics with one of the most prevalent issues in America today. What was once a well established doctrine in the church as a whole has suddenly been questioned and reversed by many denominations in our culture who are disputing the sinfulness of homosexuality. So, has the modern church suddenly unlocked the true interpretation of scripture that thousands of years of orthodox church teaching has missed? What should our apologetic approach be to those who accept homosexuality as a glorifying lifestyle? We tackle this subject with heavy hearts yearning for Gospel truth, viewing the scriptures as the ultimate authority and as God's holy, authoritative Word. We welcome your feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org..... We can't thank you all enough for listening
