Aaron Keyes is a singer/songwriter, pastor, speaker, and has not only been a worship leader for over 20 years, but has discipled and trained hundreds (if not thousands) of other Christian worship leaders. What I love most about Aaron is that he’s incredibly thoughtful and meaningful, and has been trying to restore a more pure, rooted, and theologically rich form of worship in the contemporary church. In this second TITR conversation with Aaron, we talk about the contemporary scene of Christian worship–the pros, the cons, the good, and the goofy, with an aim to help the church get back to a more holistic rhythm of worship, one that celebrates the goodness of God and also laments and protests the evil in the world.  For more about Aaron: https://www.aaronkeyes.com/welcome –––––– PROMOS Save 10% on courses with Kairos Classroom using code TITR at kairosclassroom.com! –––––– Sign up with Faithful Counseling today to save 10% off of your first month at the link:  faithfulcounseling.com/theology –––––– Save 30% at SeminaryNow.com by using code TITR –––––– Support Preston Support Preston by going to patreon.com Venmo: @Preston-Sprinkle-1 Connect with Preston Twitter | @PrestonSprinkle Instagram | @preston.sprinkle Youtube | Preston Sprinkle Check out Dr. Sprinkle’s website prestonsprinkle.com Stay Up to Date with the Podcast Twitter | @RawTheology Instagram | @TheologyintheRaw If you enjoy the podcast, be sure to leave a review. www.theologyintheraw.com Learn more about your ad choices.

What does it mean to have the gift of celibacy (or singleness)? Does it mean that you don’t desire sex or marriage? Or that you’ve been given an extra booster shot of the Holy Spirit that gives you radical immunity to sexual temptation (or at least prevents you from serious spiriutal hospitalization)? What actually was Paul talking about when he said that “it’s better to marry than to burn?” (1 Cor 7:7-8).  Dr. Dani Treweek is both single and a theological expert in singleness, having recently completed her Ph.D. on a theology of singleness and who’s publishing a book titled “The Meaning of Singleness” (IVP 2023). Dani is an ordained minister, theologian, speaker, writer, adn the founder of “Single Minded,” an evangelical Christian initiative which seeks to resource a positive, biblical conversation about singleness within the Christian life and community.

My patreon supporters sent in tons of questions, some which I address on this podcast. Some questions include: What would a perfect church look like in my opinion? Did Judas go to hell. Is Chrisitan rock music sinful? When do I feel most intimate with God? Should Pastors copy other people’s sermons? Would the Canon of Scripture look different if women were involved in the putting it together? What’s my view of the intermediate state? Did the Pharisees and Jesus hold to eternal conscious torment?

Gerry holds to a view of women in leaders that’s sometimes considered “soft complementarian.” He believes women can serve in any position of leadership and teaching in the church, except for elders, since one of the criteria for being an elder (or overseer) is “a husband of one wife.” Gerry explains his view in this podcast episode.  Gerry has an MDiv from Denver Seminary and a Ph.D. in Systematic Theology from Fuller Seminary. He’s been teaching at Western Seminary since 1980 where he currently serves as a professor of theology. Gerry has been a mentor to thousands of Christian leaders around the globe.  https://www.westernseminary.edu/academics/faculty/gerry-breshears –––––– PROMOS Save 10% on courses with Kairos Classroom using code TITR at kairosclassroom.com! –––––– Sign up with Faithful Counseling today to save 10% off of your first month at the link:  faithfulcounseling.com/theology –––––– Save 30% at SeminaryNow.com by using code TITR –––––– Support Preston Support Preston by going to patreon.com Venmo: @Preston-Sprinkle-1 Connect with Preston Twitter | @PrestonSprinkle Instagram | @preston.sprinkle Youtube | Preston Sprinkle Check out Dr. Sprinkle’s website prestonsprinkle.com Stay Up to Date with the Podcast Twitter | @RawTheology Instagram | @TheologyintheRaw If you enjoy the podcast, be sure to leave a review. www.theologyintheraw.com Learn more about your ad choices.

Writing a book on transgender idendities as a non-trans person is a bit bold, some might say audacious. This is why I decided to open myself up to my friend Seda, who is a transwoman. Seda read my book Embodied and appreciated a lot of things in it, but she does have some disagreements, which we discuss in this podcast.

Is ethnic reconciliation an essential part of the gospel, or is it an optional add on? In this solo episode, I argue for the former, that part of the reason why Christ came, died, and was raised from the dead was to create “in one new humanity” (Eph. 2) a multiethnic kingdom and church. After giving a long personal narrative about why this topic is important to me, I work through several key passages integral to the storyline of Scripture including: Genesis 12, Acts 2, 6, 8, 13, Galatians 2-3, Ephesians 2-3, and Revelation 5.  –––––– PROMOS Save 10% on courses with Kairos Classroom using code TITR at kairosclassroom.com! –––––– Sign up with Faithful Counseling today to save 10% off of your first month at the link:  faithfulcounseling.com/theology –––––– Save 30% at SeminaryNow.com by using code TITR –––––– Support Preston Support Preston by going to patreon.com Venmo: @Preston-Sprinkle-1 Connect with Preston Twitter | @PrestonSprinkle Instagram | @preston.sprinkle Youtube | Preston Sprinkle Check out Dr. Sprinkle’s website prestonsprinkle.com Stay Up to Date with the Podcast Twitter | @RawTheology Instagram | @TheologyintheRaw If you enjoy the podcast, be sure to leave a review. www.theologyintheraw.com Learn more about your ad choices.

Over a year ago, Scott confessed to Evan that he had committed sexual immorality as he was a leader/teacher at the church, and Evan and the leaders beautifully navigated what it looks like to address this situation with grace, truth, and authenticity. –––––– PROMOS Save 10% on courses with Kairos Classroom using code TITR at kairosclassroom.com! –––––– Sign up with Faithful Counseling today to save 10% off of your first month at the link:  faithfulcounseling.com/titr or use code TITR at faithfulcounseling.com –––––– Save 30% at SeminaryNow.com by using code TITR –––––– Support Preston Support Preston by going to patreon.com Venmo: @Preston-Sprinkle-1 Connect with Preston Twitter | @PrestonSprinkle Instagram | @preston.sprinkle Youtube | Preston Sprinkle Check out Dr. Sprinkle’s website prestonsprinkle.com Stay Up to Date with the Podcast Twitter | @RawTheology Instagram | @TheologyintheRaw If you enjoy the podcast, be sure to leave a review. www.theologyintheraw.com Learn more about your ad choices.

Are orphanages helping orphans? Most Christians would say: obviously yes. But Brandon, who’s been working in orphan care for over a decade, says that they are actually perpetuating a system of care that is ultimately not helpful for orphans. Kids belong in families, and there are many other more healthy ways to help kids be raised in a family.  Brandon is the senior director of global programs and partnerships for 1MILLIONHOME–an organization aimed at revolutionizing orphan care through broadly shifting mindsets and scaling up proven community-based models that reunite children with families and eradicate practices that lead to family separation. Brandon has worked in the child welfare and nonprofit sectors for over twelve years. Before joining 1MILLIONHOME, he led a family based care and advocacy program in Tanzania for several years. Brandon has also worked at a Tanzanian orphanage, in the Californian foster care system, at various churches and teaches on issues facing at risk children at the university level. He has his Master’s Degree in Global Development and Justice and is passionate about indigenous leadership, community mobilization and seeing global entities come together to deliver the best care for at risk children. –––––– PROMOS Save 10% on courses with Kairos Classroom using code TITR at kairosclassroom.com! –––––– Sign up with Faithful Counseling today to save 10% off of your first month at the link:  faithfulcounseling.com/titr or use code TITR at faithfulcounseling.com –––––– Save 30% at SeminaryNow.com by using code TITR –––––– Support Preston Support Preston by going to patreon.com Venmo: @Preston-Sprinkle-1 Connect with Preston Twitter | @PrestonSprinkle Instagram | @preston.sprinkle Youtube | Preston Sprinkle Check out Dr. Sprinkle’s website prestonsprinkle.com Stay Up to Date with the Podcast Twitter | @RawTheology Instagram | @TheologyintheRaw If you enjoy the podcast, be sure to leave a review. www.theologyintheraw.com Learn more about your ad choices.

Justin joins me on this 4th of July to talk about how Christians should think about the holiday. In particular, how should Christians, whose allegiance should be unwavering toward “no king but Jesus,” celebrate the 4th? Or–should we celebrate? What do we do with the dark history that is part of the American story? What about all the good that America has done? What is that good? How do African Americans think through the 4th?

This was quite frustrating to listen to at times and makes me desire for someone with an opposing view to be having a discussion along with Mark, because Preston oftentimes does not present opposing viewpoints accurately or with much detail, then the guest just dismisses it as totally illegitimate and Preston just giggles as if to suggest certain concerns are only coming from conspiracy theorist Neanderthals - kind of insulting. I can't believe Mark said that the pandemic would essentially be over if everyone got vaccinated today. Is he not at all aware of the dozens of examples (anywhere from institutions to entire countries) that have extremely high vaccination rates and yet are experiencing record outbreaks? Mark seemed to in no way acknowledge that vaccinated people are very much spreading the virus themselves. I could say more, but it was just very disappointing to get this unbalanced view.

Some good questions and answers, but you both made several unquestioned assumptions and missed some important biblical/hermeneutical issues. Additionally, there were some problematic statement: e.g., What about those who had being "Eunuchs" forced on them (e.g., by being attracted to the same sex)? You excluded that category and didn't address it. That's not intellectually rigorous and should have been part of the conversation (knowing you both probably have some response to this). Also, generally, marriage is not a calling, neither is celibacy. And, since most are heterosexual, why is that not sufficient for the broad purpose of marriage (particularly procreation) and leave those who can't have children, don't want children, or are attracted to the same sex join in a committed relationship, particularly since the biblical authors and audiences would not have been able to image this debate with their cultural blinders? Then there's the comment that was made that the family unit is the

So many good points. I would quibble that the image of God is not what enables resurrection. I would also say that no part of creation is inherently immortal.

catholicism is not christianity. Christianity is a Faith. Catholicism is a religion(don't know the difference?). Look it up!!

Great episode! On point. I'd just quibble that sin isn't only or mainly an issue of power. That's a different ideology.

Sadly, Preston's political awareness is drastically insufficient. Also, leaning towards Fox News app a more reliable source is being willfully blinded... look at the current law suit. Every news source has a bent, but Preston doesn't seem to be willing to do the homework to properly address credibility. Case in point, border dementia began under Obama, but separating children from parents began under Trump...a distinction never acknowledged or understood.

And you're not concerned about Trump undermining democracy and following autocratic playbooks? How one-sided.

The assessment off the need landscape is terribly off. Fox News is not more objective than others.

Sprinkle is very academically and Biblically robust while maintaining authentic relatability and pastoral application in every episode. Love myself some Theology in the Raw.
