The Parable of the Unmerciful Servant

What happens when we refuse to extend the mercy and grace we received from God to others? The answer is not good. This week’s episode we discuss the Parable of the Unmerciful Servant and why Jesus uses it to reveal what happens when we refuse to extend mercy to others.

The Parable of the Wineskin

Welcome to our first episode on the Parables of Jesus! The Parable of the Wineskin Today we talk about one of the weirder parables, and that is the Parable of the Wineskin found in Luke 5. This parable talks about how if we stick to our rigid theologies and legalistic interpretation of the Bible, then […]

What is Repentance?

What does it mean to repent? Why are we called to repent? What does repentance mean for our souls?

What is Grace?

What is grace? What does it mean to live by the grace of God? What does it do to our sin?

In this week’s episode, we cover the idea of grace and what it means for our sin. Ultimately, grace is something that we experience. Any words we come up with to describe it will fail to capture the true essence of grace. As always, the concept of grace can not be boiled down in one episode, but we will highlight the story of the Woman Caught in Adultery to try and understand what grace looks like.

What is Sin?

What is sin? Is it a list of things that we can’t do? Is it things that bring us shame? Or is it more than that?

This week’s episode is dedicated to answering the question “what is sin?” We explore how sin, at its core, gets in the way of our relationship with God. Sin and God cannot coexist in the same space.

Sorry that this week’s episode is late, but the upload on Thursday didn’t go through, so we are a little late, but nevertheless, enjoy this week’s episode!

In Response to Parkland

In light of what happened in Parkland, Florida, this week’s episode of Thursday’s Theology is dedicated to sharing some of my thoughts on the issue of mass shootings and gun control.

I know that people are going to disagree with me. That’s okay. But I couldn’t stay silent on the issue. Student ministry is my life and I needed to say something about High School students losing their lives to needless violence.

If you disagree with me, that’s fine. Share your thoughts with me, push back on my opinion. Just be civil about it. My desire is to dialogue and not argue.

Thursday’s Theology – Part IV

What’s up theology nerds!
 
Good Thursday to you all. A new Thursday means a new episode of Thursday’s Theology is up and running!
 
This week we are focusing specifically on Luke 18 and Jesus’ parable of the Tax Collector and the Pharisee. We are going to be discussing how Jesus uses two extreme examples, one righteous and one unrighteous, to prove a point about the hypocrisy of prayer.
 
In essence, prayer is meant to be a personal conversation with you and God, not done in public for your own self gratifications.
 
Check out this week’s episode to hear more!
And remember, theology doesn’t have to be complicated, it is simply the study of who God is.
