Wrestling with Scripture Pastor Pods
MDPC Pastors and biblical scholars from our staff have paired up for a podcast series on “Wrestling with Scripture,” the summer sermon series that tackles some of the toughest texts of the Bible. Most topics were chosen from the congregation’s suggestions.
An Introduction to Wrestling with Scripture
Hosted by Rachel Poysky (Children's Pastor) and Dan Aikins (Alpha Pastor)
In this episode, Rachel and Dan share passages that have challenged them and offer tips on how to approach other tough passages of Scripture.
Abraham and Isaac: God’s Everlasting Love
Hosted by Martha Moore (Teacher in Residence) and Laurien Hook (Coordinator for Equipping Ministries)
Laurien Hook and Martha Moore ponder the age-old question of how a loving God could ask Abraham to sacrifice his one and only son. How can Genesis 22 invigorate our own faith in God and His endlessly self-giving love for us?
Do Good People Go to Hell?
Hosted by Sarah Stone (Young Adult Outreach Director) and Trevor Harris (Young Adult Discipleship Director)
Do good people go to heaven, and bad people go to hell? What qualifies as ‘good?’ Join Trevor and Sarah as they think through the ways people define goodness, and then how God defines it. Spoiler: those two things are pretty different.
Freed to Love Others: A Look at Romans 8
Romans 8:1-4 (and selected verses from Romans)
Hosted by Clay Brown (Equipping Pastor) and Laurien Hook (Coordinator for Equipping Ministries)
We think we are pretty decent people at least some of the time. But Romans 8:4 makes it crystal clear any goodness we possess comes only through Jesus. Why? He fulfills “the righteous requirement of the law.” But what does this statement mean, both in terms of the rest of the book of Romans and in terms of our everyday lives? Join Clay and Laurien as they unpack some of the life-changing implications of Jesus’ work on our behalf.
What to Do When God Doesn't Answer?
Hosted by Martha Moore (Teacher in Residence) and Amanda Grace Caldwell (Counselor in Residence)
We all ask why and how questions of God. Why did this happen to me? How long, O, Lord? But what happens when God doesn’t answer in the way or time in which we expect? Join Martha Moore and Amanda Grace Caldwell as they talk about how to wait on God.
