Podcast #25: Focus

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye tithe mint and anise and cummin, and have left undone the weightier matters of the law, justice, and mercy, and faith: but these ye ought to have done, and not to have left the other undone. Ye blind guides, that strain out the gnat, and swallow the camel! (Matthew 23:23-24)

What is really important? What, in the end, really is not as important? These are important issues as we approach evangelism: we need to focus on what God in Christ would emphasize, and not allow minor issues to take over. Join us as we discuss the importance of proper focus!

Podcast #19: Defense with Respect and Gentleness

But sanctify in your hearts Christ as Lord: being ready always to give answer to every man that asketh you a reason concerning the hope that is in you, yet with meekness and fear (1 Peter 3:15).

We are called upon to make the case for our faith to others. How should that case be made so as to maintain the integrity of the message but remain in the spirit of meekness and fear? Join Ethan as he discusses the relevance of a full understanding of 1 Peter 3:15 to our evangelistic endeavors!
