Testimony and Reflections

Our first season ends with a look back on our favorite episodes and plans for the future. Along the way, George Kachmar shares his personal testimony with Tim Young.

The Creation of Man

We hit a Bible speed bump when we come to Genesis 2:7.  Stephen Macfarlane joins Tim Young to explain what a Bible speed bump is and why this small verse is so essential. We learn a lot about our Creator and ourselves in the process.

The Good Fight of the Faith

This is our fourth and final episode on faith. This time its about “the faith”. Tim Young and Brian Alexander start off with some data visualization on the word faith. This leads them into an unexpected area of Paul’s epistles that concentrate on “the faith”.

The Faith that Saves

Our studies in “faith” continue with this important podcast on how faith saves. Stephen Macfarlane and Tim Young begin at the starting point of Genesis 15:6. This verse is so vital that it is quoted three times in the New Testament. We draw lessons from each New Testemant passage learning about justification by faith and how faith is to be seen in our works.

Now Faith Is…

“Faith toward God” (Hebrews 6:1) is certainly an essential Bible study. Tom Colby and Tim Young discuss this important word, how to define it, and how it is much more than just believing God exists. This is the first podcast in a four-part series on “faith”.

Repent!

Repent! This was what John the Baptist, Jesus and the Apostles first preached. Tim Young and Brian Alexander discuss this important topic for our lives. They go through the Old and New Testament words giving examples of how they are used. From there they tackle the tough questions, “What is needed for repentance?” and “What do we repent from?”
