Episode 7: Does discipleship matter? How do I make time to pray? Does God work even if one has no faith?
In this week's episode I answer listener questions that came in during the week.  The first question asked if discipleship was really necessary, and isn't getting to Christ what is most important?  The second question was in regard to prayer.  This listener asked with time so limited is prayer really necessary?  The third question, which will be answered more fully next time (I ran out of time) was if God can work even if someone doesn't have faith?  Great questions!  Keep them coming in.  You can send your questions to hopewithin18@gmail.com or you can send them through my website theologystillmatters.com.

Episode 6: Three Ways Suffering Can Bring Us Closer to Christ
It is in our nature to look at suffering as something horrible.  As something that no good can possibly come from.  Throughout Christian history that is no shortage of examples of people who suffered greatly, but much good came from it.  One such person is the Apostle Paul.  In this episode I look at Philippians 1:12-16 to look at a bad circumstance that Paul was in, and how much good came from it.

Episode 5: Do we need the Old Testament? Plus a look at Jesus in Hebrew Poetry.
On Google Plus the other day someone responded to one of my posts by saying that, as Christians, we no longer need to bother reading the Old Testament.  This show is a response, and shows why it is important because thee are so many things we can learn from it.  It is the story of salvation history.  I also look through the poetic books of Jon, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Songs and look at how Christ is in them.  This helps us see why the Old Testament is worth studying.  As Augustine said, "The New Testament is hidden in the Old, and the Old revealed in the New".
