Last month, we did a show about the "woke right." And then our friend, Alisa Childers, re-released it on her podcast platform. Since then, we've received a lot of feedback about the show and continued to research the issues. Some people say the "woke right" isn't a thing. Others say, it's "absolutely a thing." Our question is becoming, how is it di…

There is so much confusion among Christians about the issue of counseling and mental illness. Some think that it undermines the authority of Scripture to even see a therapist. Others seem to lack discernment about how to prevent therapy becoming a gateway to unbiblical life choices. We've asked our friend, Dr. David King, professor in social work a…

I've been sharing a little about my 3-decade journey of wrestling through my place in ministry. I asked my friend, Fr. Hayden Butler, to come on and lead us about the ancient faith approach to local church leadership, and where women fit into that picture. I have found the ancient faith dialogue to be an important piece of my personal journey, prov…

How "pro-life" do you want to be?A key theme on the podcast this year is justice for the pre-born. We are exploring the issue from a variety of different angles. The overturning of Roe hasn't automatically increased safety for the pre-born. Chemical abortions are on the rise. We've asked our friend, OB-GYN Dr. Chris Cirucci to come back on the show…

Whenever we hear pastors talk about the "marginalized" or the "oppressed," we usually cringe a little inside. A deeply biblical idea has been co-opted by the culture and morphed to mean something completely different. We want to have a public conversation about this confusion and see if we help straighten out what has become a very crooked line by …

We have been watching the rise of some very....odd....posts on Twitter that sound an awful lot like BLM sounded a few years ago. Only they are on the right. We have been very confused about what to make of these posts. Kevin is coming back on the show to break it all down for us in a way that we (and you!) can understand.…

All Christians are called to share the Gospel. But very few of us are naturally comfortable with doing it. In this teaching, I want to help you discover your unique style of sharing the faith, according to the way God has gifted you and your natural personality.This teaching is based on insights from the book, Contagious Faith, by Mark Mittelberg. …

I was interviewed recently on the Wintery Knight and Desert Rose show. We discussed the pros and cons of "diversity" from a Christian point of view. What is diversity? Should Christians try to redeem DEI, or should we just avoid it? We do a deep dive to help you understand the issue better.Also mentioned:• "Why Companies are Getting a Queer Makeove…

If God is in control of everything, can Christians sit back and not bother to evangelize? Hardly! I clarify the roles and responsibilities when sharing the faith. What does God do? What should we do? We do a thorough study of Scripture and find out!This teaching is loosely based on the modern classic, Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God, by J.I. …

We asked our friend, Kevin Briggins, to come on and help us understand the situation.

This week, I want to coach you through some of the tougher situations that can arise when you’re in the middle of a discussion about the faith. (Because let’s be honest, very, very few conversations are a straight line to conversion. Sometimes you have to know when to call a tow truck.) And again, these are strategies that I have used for many year…

The annual meeting for the World Economic Forum was a few weeks ago. We want to catch you up about what the WEF is and what they are trying to accomplish.

We are answering the most frequent question we get on the road. For the first time, we are having a public conversation about Monique's backstory and how she came to be a missionary in South Africa, her emergency transition off the mission field in 2018 and why she went back, even though she thought she might die there for the sake of the Gospel.…

We are getting more and more people writing into the ministry asking for help to think through where the line in the sand is for them when it comes to their jobs conflicting with their religious convictions.

Christians generally agree that the Bible commands us to take care of orphans. But there is robust discussion about what qualifies as being in the child's best interest. In recent years, the principles of Critical Adoption Theory have shaped the policies and practices for many adoption agencies. There is a growing sentiment, even among Christian ad…

The phrase “human flourishing” has become a weird buzz word that encompasses the idea of "whatever makes me happy." But true human flourishing can only come when we follow the Creator’s design for how humanity is supposed to work. Monique and Krista do a deep dive on what we call our "Creation Identity," things that are objectively true for all hum…

I am continuing to do a deep dive into evangelism. This week I attempt to lay out Jesus' definition of the "good news" and suggest some says that I think it ought to inform our own evangelistic efforts.

Every Bible-believing Christian has the same duty to share the gospel. We even believe that it should be a high priority in our lives. So, why do so many of us (myself included) put the task of “sharing the gospel” on the back-burner? I tackle this question in part 1 of an extended teaching series focusing on various aspects of evangelism. This wil…

The big story over the Christmas break was the announcement from the Vatican about "blessing same sex couples." Some traditionalists have hailed this as pastorally helpful and clarifying, while others call it confusing and potentially troubling. Meanwhile the mainstream news reported the Roman Catholic Church as moving toward gay affirming. I've as…

A couple weeks ago, I shared an IG slide sequence from the Raising Apologists account about Taylor Swift not being a role model for Christian girls. I was not prepared for the responses. The string had over 150 comments! Who knew that TS is a high interest topic among Christian mothers?! (Not me!)I’ve asked my friend Amy Davison (from Mama Bear Apo…

The on-going war in Israel has raised several questions for us. What involvement should Christians have with war? Is there a biblical case for Christians to participate in the military, given that it could mean bombing innocent civilians? After all, didn’t Jesus command us to love our enemies and “turn the other cheek”? We asked Dr. Eric Patterson,…

***Answering a Popular Meme***Last Christmas I saw a meme depicting Mary (the mother of Jesus) with her fist raised in the air. The artist reimagined Mary's poem in Luke 1 as a “call to economic justice.” I asked my friend, Father Hayden Butler from St. Matthew’s Anglican Church in Newport Beach, CA to come on and help us walk through the true mean…

This is the final installment of a three-part teaching series that I am currently doing to try and put the war in Israel into its historical context.

It has been almost two months since the Black Sabbath of October 7 in Israel. I have been on a personal journey to research the history of the state of Israel in an effort to put the current conflict into its historical context. This has proved very challenging.

The Evangelical Theological Society (ETS) annual meeting is like Comicon for theology nerds. This is the place where evangelical scholars (the people who write the commentaries and study Bibles) present academic papers to each other. Many of these ideas are then taken back into seminaries, ministries, and local churches. In this special edition of …

While many archaeologists reject the spiritual authority of the Bible and even argue about the details of the history it presents, it is important to remember that even secular archaeologists use the Bible as a tool in their excavation work. Why? Because the Bible describes real events, people, and places. We will talk with filmmaker and biblical a…

Is this accurate?• Can you help us understand…

When I woke up on October 7 and my daughter Emily texted me that Israel was at war, the very first person I messaged was my Christian sister, Callie Mitchell. You may recognize her name, as she was a guest on the show earlier this year sharing with us about Messianic Judaism. When she responded, she said her family were safe and that they had spent…

The events in Israel have hit many of us very hard. One of the first things I did was reach out to my friend Laura Powell. Monique and I did a show with her a couple years ago about sharing our faith with Muslims. So I asked her if she could help me understand the truth whether Islam is a religion of violence or peace.…
