It's the dreaded gender role conversation! Lisa and Marcos talk about this controversial subject without the angst. Has God created men and women with specific roles in mind? Our hosts work to disagree well and highlight the necessity of brothers and sisters working together in the body of Christ.
After a thoughtful conversation about men last week, Lisa and Marcos turn the spotlight on women. To help with this topic they are joined by Rachel Green Miller, one half of the "Theology Gals" podcast and author of the book "Beyond Authority and Submission: Women and Men in Marriage, Church, and Society".
This week, Lisa and Marcos are joined by John Pennylegion (Penny), the Pastor of Christ the King Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Roanoke, VA...otherwise known as Lisa's pastor! Penny shares his thoughts on the current conversations about manhood and womanhood as well as some specific challenges facing men in our current context. This is a discussion you don't want to miss!
As Lisa and Marcos continue discussing the impact sin has had on humanity, they turn toward the topic of human sexuality. The hosts begin by sharing why this is a difficult topic to broach well, the confusion surrounding human sexuality, and the sins that need to be addressed. This is the first of many tough conversations about God's design for sexuality and how sin has impacted it.
Followers of Jesus have long been working for the promotion and preservation of life. Lisa and Marcos discuss why the doctrine of the image of God is so important as Christians do pro-life work and how the Westminster Larger Catechism helps Christians discuss the topic of abortion with clarity and compassion.
From high profile leaders to Christians in the pews, many are experiencing a phenomenon called "deconstruction". In this special episode, Lisa and Marcos start with their own stories as they work to define deconstruction, consider if that's the best term for what people are going through, and detail the dangers of apostasy.
Where did racism and ethnic strife come from? Is racism unique to the United States? Lisa and Marcos discuss how a robust understanding of the human sin makes sense of ethnic hatred and ask questions about how to move forward in a fallen world.
