Helping Christians Answer Tough Questions

A Pastoral Podcast is designed to help everyday Christians grow in Christ by providing biblical answers to the hard questions that we all wrestle with: What makes a church “good”? How do I overcome habitual sins? Why are there different Bible translations? These are just some of the topics we look at through the lens of God’s all-sufficient, life-changing, authoritative Word.

    We are at a point in American history where trust in institutions is lower than it's ever been—and for good reason. Government, media, education, the church, and even the family are all viewed with suspicion. What are Christians to make of so-called "church membership"? Is it right or wise? Is it even biblical? Listen in as Lloyd and Tony talk about the issue of church membership.

    All throughout church history, Christians have held different views on the fourth commandment and taken different approaches to it. So what is the Sabbath? Is there a "Christian Sabbath," and if so, is it on Saturday or Sunday? Are we obligated to keep it, and how should we treat our brothers and sisters in Christ when their convictions differ from ours? Pastors Lloyd and Tony try to answer these questions biblically in this episode of A Pastoral Podcast.

    Denominations: Christian disunity, or something else? Outsiders have faulted Christianity for centuries because of the fact that there are different denominations. If we have one Bible, one God, and one faith, why are there so many different churches? It's one thing for unbelievers to have a problem here, but it's another thing altogether when Christians are confused by it. Today on A Pastoral Podcast, Lloyd and Tony will talk about what is meant by "denominations," why so many exist, and how we as Christians can think biblically about it.

In our first edition of A Pastoral Podcast, Lloyd and Tony talk about that tension and the difference between legalism and spiritual discipline.
