Seeing Things for the First Time

January 29th, 2019

Today we’re jumping into chapter 9 of my book ‘New Wineskins and the Simple Words of Christ’. When we become born again into Jesus’s kingdom, it can feel like He is turning our worldview upside down. However, it’s crucial to remember we all enter life with an inverted perspective of reality. Jesus is actually helping to set everything right side up again. Here in Chapter 9, we look at how adopting Jesus’ worldview helps us to live with better spiritual eyesight and be more effective in fighting the spiritual battles we all face.

Conspiracies of Biblical Proportions

January 15th, 2019

In Episode 40, we’re looking at the theme of conspiracy, and tracing that idea from Genesis to Revelation, the Ante Nicene era to modern times. We’ll also look at how we as 21st century humans have been conditioned to dismiss conspiracies outright. This is definitely a show you don’t want to miss, but the powers that be would love for you to scoff at.

Dr Future Pt. 2

December 11th, 2018

This is part two of my interview with Dr. Michael Bennet, aka Dr. Future. In this episode, Dr. Future takes us back in time as we look at some unfortunate aspects of Church history. This is sure to be a challenging listen, so we definitely want to encourage you to hold nothing but Jesus above critique. A major storm hit my neck of the woods during the last couple of minutes of the interview, so I want to apologize for the minor technical difficulties that can be heard in that section. Dr. Future was host of the tremendously influential FutureQuake radio show, and is the author of both The Two Spies Report blog and the soon-to-be-published Holy War Chronicles: A Spiritual View of the War on Terror.

Daddy Issues & Jesus

October 9th, 2018

Unfortunately, it is quite common for many of us to see God the Father through the lens of our relationship with our earthly fathers. In this audio version of Chapter 7 of my book, New Wineskins and the Simple Words of Christ, I demonstrate how the Scriptures call us to see God the Father through the lens of His Son, Jesus Christ, and how doing so has been transformational in my faith journey.

The Cost of Worship

September 25th, 2018

Frequently said in churches throughout the United States are prayers giving thanks to God for a safe place to worship. But when was worship ever designed to be safe? Today we will be looking at the subject of worship and the correlating action of sacrifice demonstrated in the Scriptures. There is a cost to worshipping the Father in Spirit and in truth, and sacrifice is never comfortable.

Giving God’s Way

September 11th, 2018

Proverbs 18:13 says, “He who gives an answer before he hears, it is folly and shame to him.” Particularly with episode 29, I want to encourage you to put this verse into practice. Today we will be looking at the subject of Biblical giving. How does the Bible define tithing? Did the early Christians teach tithing? What does giving God’s way actually look like? All these questions and more will be covered in this episode.

If/Then Jesus

August 28th, 2018

Episode 28 is definitely an interesting one. I’m looking at the issue of conditional versus unconditional security of the Christian by giving an audio version of Chapter 6 of my book, New: Wineskins and the Simple Words of Christ. Is 'once saved, always saved' actually the orthodox position of the early Church? Where did that doctrine originate? What is it that allows Christians to have tremendous security in their salvation? All these subjects and more are covered in this podcast.

God’s Manifold Grace

August 14th, 2018

In Episode 27, we will discuss the amazing subject of grace. Just like the love of God can be both over-emphasized and under-emphasized, so too the grace of God is often both over and under-simplified. Today, I will be discussing the various ways the Koine Greek word charis (grace) is used in Scripture, and highlight a few ways the early Christians used charis in their writings.

By way of housekeeping, at the end of every episode of RTF, I include an original song. I pray those have been a blessing to you. A few months ago I began recording a 7 song EP of original songs I’ve written over the last 5 years. This can be quite a costly endeavor, so to help cover the cost of production, I’ve created a GoFundMe Campaign. For those who contribute $20, you will receive a hard copy of the 7 song EP, plus a demo CD of acoustic versions of 5 additional songs. For those who contribute $30 or more, in addition to the EP and demo, I will include a copy of my book, New Wineskins and the Simple Words of Christ.
