Hey there,

in this episode Victor and I talk about discussing religion with non-believers. I start of with reading a devotional I wrote, which you can also download and after that we start to discuss it. We jumped around topics a little more than we should, but I hope you can still learn from this episode.

Some time ago I stumbled upon an article which also talked about this, but then specifically when  Christians argue with atheists. Still I thought it was a good article and it touched on some points we also discussed.

Enjoy the episode! God bless.

 

Episode 16 – Trials, Patience, Completeness, Wisdom and More!

Download this episode

Hello everyone,

this week Victor and I come back after a long time of not doing episodes for this podcast. We are planning on putting out more consistently new episodes for anyone who likes to listen to us.

This time we discuss the richness of the first verses of James (and James in general, since it is such a rich book full of compact wisdom). James starts out with something serious: trials and the writer makes a bold statement:

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds,  for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.
James 1: 2,3 (ESV)

all joy! That isn’t something I think of when I hear somebody talk about how he or she has been tested. But James puts it clearly: let steadfastness has its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

If that isn’t some Bible mystery, than I don’t know what is. Enjoy the episode and God bless.

Episode 15 – When God feels far away

In this episode Victor and I discuss what to do when God feels far away. I think it was a very valuable conversation. It is an interesting topic because a lot of people went or will go through this.

The relevant question is: what to do when you find yourself without any longings for God or without any desire to study the Bible or pray. To get the conversation started I wrote a devotional which you can download in the link above.

Enjoy the episode and have a blessed day!

Episode 13 – Applying Faith, Comfort the Suffering and more!

Download this episode

Hello everyone,

it’s been quite a while, right? A lot of that had something to do with recording our video for episode 12, which I will upload in audio-only format here as well.

That being said it’s about time for episode 13. It was a great conversation in my opinion. We talked about a lot, but all was of great value.

Victor had something to add though at around 23 minutes into the conversation. This is the part where he talked about God not testing anyone whatsoever, but after the recording he directed me to these two articles on gotquestions.org about God testing and tempting people (or not): http://www.gotquestions.org/why-does-God-test-us.html, http://www.gotquestions.org/God-tempt-us-to-sin.html

I hope you enjoy this one and see you next week for a new podcast, or tomorrow for a new Bible study.

God bless!
