On this week’s episode, the guys respond to three compelling community questions. The topics include whether or not we should ditch the label “Christian”, God’s sovereignty and human choices and whether spiritual experiences are enough for sustaining a vibrant faith.
Greg Boyd comes on the podcast again to discuss some controversial topics of our culture today. He shares his views on violence in the Old Testament, homosexuality, whether Christians should be involved in politics or not and more!
If you’re worried that there is no David’s Random Story, however, fear not, for David tells of what happened when he tried to be nice to some kids at a supermarket… let’s just say it didn’t go as expected…
In this episode of the P&I podcast, the regulars look at video games and whether or not followers of Jesus should have any involvement in them. They discuss if there are any major negative or positive sides to gaming and what those might be.
Chad also gets his own segment in the podcast and David shares about the time he hitchhiked from California to Minneapolis in David’s Random Story.
While Luke is apparently waiting for someone to return his tiny suit, Ben, Chad and David discuss the spiritual reality of our world, why it seems so many people are unaware of it, and if there is such a thing as being overly spiritual.
They also look at whether or not there is something uniquely spiritual about music, and reminisce about the time David hid inside a crypt in an Egyptian Pyramid.
Come&Live artist Philip Shorey (Suitcase Sideshow) joins Ben on the podcast to talk about a music score he wrote to the silent horror film Nosferatu. He shares how he used the movie along with an orchestra to present the gospel to thousands of people at an art festival in Poland and then at a theater in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
They also discuss the power of Art and how every artist has a message, whether they know it or not.
How should Christians respond to Halloween? Is it just harmless fun? Or is there something truly evil about it?
The guys get into a rowdy debate over how far is too far when it comes to fantasy and ‘horror themes’ in entertainment. They also discuss whether Halloween can be used as a unique opportunity to reach people for Jesus.
Oh! AND a regular contributor to the podcast makes an in-person appearance!!! Let’s just say he dresses like a clown and doesn’t really talk much…
Ben and David answer listeners questions during a live stream on Facebook. They look at ways to overcome spiritual apathy, when or how we should point out sin in someone's life, how to help equip churches to reach the lost, favorite bands and much more!
In this episode of the P&I podcast, Ben, David and Luke listen to a clip of interviews that were done on a university campus where people were asked basic worldview questions. They then discuss the predominant beliefs of our culture, what has led to these views, and how they should affect our approach to evangelism
David also explains why Chad couldn't be on this episode... apparently it has to do with conspiracy theories, and goes on to tell of what happened when he was going through security at the Amsterdam airport.
While all the other regulars are in trains, planes, and automobiles, writer, TED speaker, and online educator Hannah Brencher joins Ben on the podcast. They talk about the increase of loneliness in our culture and discuss some of the ways Hannah has been impacting people all over the world through the organization she founded in 2011 "The World Needs More Love Letters".
The guys discuss a cartoon currently in theaters called "Smallfoot" and it's underlying theme of not accepting traditions, religions and questioning everything. They look at the implications of such a message, discuss the importance of questioning traditions and speak of the real need for genuine faith in our culture. David also tells the tale of Paul Yanki, in his Random Story.
