A Vision of Biblical Proportions

And Moses called Bezalel and Oholiab and every craftsman in whose mind the Lord had put skill, everyone whose heart stirred him up to come to do the work. And they received from Moses all the contribution that the people of Israel had brought for doing the work on the sanctuary. They still kept bringing him freewill offerings every morning, so that all the craftsmen who were doing every sort of task on the sanctuary came, each from the task that he was doing, and said to Moses, “The people bring much more than enough for doing the work that the Lord has commanded us to do.” So Moses gave command, and word was proclaimed throughout the camp, “Let no man or woman do anything more for the contribution for the sanctuary.” So the people were restrained from bringing, for the material they had was sufficient to do all the work, and more. - Exodus 36:2-7

What is it about men in tights throwing a ball that can cause people to weep, climb poles, or burn down a city? Is devotion to sports an unchallenged idol in Christian culture?

While David, Chad and Ben discuss these questions Luke is apparently still being dragged around Poland by a pony.

The Instant reaction podcast is back!! After being away on tour for a couple of weeks, most of the regulars (except Luke) are back and rowdy as usual.

Wasting no time, the guys dive right back into controversial waters and discuss whether a small Christian University located in St Paul, Minnesota should be hosting Snoop Dogg as part of Super Bowl celebrations. Can this be justified as a business decision or a way to influence the “scene?” Not surprisingly, the guys have an opinion, and it’s not as straightforward as you might expect.

Episode 78: Don’t Tell Me What To Do!

Does the idea of submitting to leadership scare you? Do we really need leaders over our lives? This fear of submission is very common, especially in today’s culture that worships independence and being a strong individual. While these ideals are not inherently wrong they can sometimes keep us from truly being released in our calling. The guys look at this struggle and share their opinions on the matter in this final episode of the series “Millennials in Missions”

Episode 77: I Don’t Dig Wells!

When you think of the title missionary, do you think of khaki shorts and digging wells? Or construction projects, boring presentations during church services, and never-ending requests for funds? This false perception of what it means to be a missionary will so often keep people, specifically millennials, from ever going into the mission field. The regulars (including Chad, who finally arrived in Germany) look deeper at this barrier, share their experience (including a hilarious rant from David) and give some practical tips for those feeling called to missions.
