Because of the podcast tour, there will be a short break in recording new content, so let’s revisit some of the Perrys’ most popular episodes.Prayer will always be a struggle because it concerns our dependence. “Do I trust myself today, or do I trust God to meet my needs?” The Perrys still feel this, that prayer might be something we always suck at. Oh, and this episode has a very important debate about washcloth usage in the shower. Enjoy!

A few months back, Dr. Eric Mason joined Jackie and Preston to talk about church dynamics and denominations, and it got some pushback from members of the SDA (Seventh Day Adventism) community. As a follow-up, Dr. Mason is back to have a conversation with Elce “Thunder” Lauriston, who used to be a conference evangelist and defender of the Adventist faith… until he says “in good consciousness and integrity” he had no choice but to leave. This episode covers the key SDA doctrines that are contradictory to Biblical truth. This Episode of With The Perrys is Sponsored by:https://www.covenanteyes.com — Try Victory by Covenant Eyes FREE for 30 days with promo code PERRYS!https://dwellbible.com/perry — Get an exclusive 25% discount today!

Trauma can show up in all relationships, not just romantic ones. And “friendship trauma” may sound dramatic, but experiences with others can legitimately affect your view of yourself, even the concept of friendship in general. In this episode, the Perrys talk about what it looks like to be a good friend, and how we need to work through past hurt and doubt to engage in future, healthy friendships. This episode of With The Perrys is Sponsored by:https://lifeway.com/ephesiansstudy — Join us as we study through the book of Ephesians.https://www.covenanteyes.com — Try Victory by Covenant Eyes FREE for 30 days with promo code PERRYS!

When a man named Brian Dye started coming to Preston’s poetry events, Preston admits he didn’t trust him. But Brian had a burden to see young believers walk toward sanctification, and he felt called by God to help Preston to cultivate his influence. Brian’s pursuit of Preston and their ongoing discipleship relationship is the topic of today’s episode. Jackie, Preston and Brian discuss the pastoral nature of investing your life into someone else’s life and teaching as you go, and how discipleship doesn’t require creating a new program.Follow Brian on Instagram at @visionnehemiah and @hoodheroes773.

When it comes to women in ministry who know a thing or two about studying the Bible, Jackie and her two guests, Jasmine L. Holmes and Melissa Kruger, have a ton to offer. On this episode of With The Perrys, they sit down to discuss a new Bible study resource called Ephesians: A Study of Faith and Practice. Jackie, Jasmine, and Melissa talk about the way they went about writing this Bible study together so that we can more clearly understand how we are oriented to God through Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit.The Ephesians study will be released in June 2024.

Can we be honest? This episode almost didn't happen because The Perrys found themselves in a funk when it was time to record. Jackie admits she’s recently felt as though she’s been holding back the hand of depression. Preston reflects on spiritual opposition he’s felt during this busy season with projects and upcoming plans. So, what does it look like to fight back against anger, irritation, or sadness? It looks like leaning into spiritual disciplines – to the degree you have the strength to do them – and finding community with one another, as they model in today’s episode. This Episode of With The Perrys Sponsored by:https://liberty.edu/Perry — Get your application fee WAIVED when you start your future with Liberty University today!  Subscribe to the Perrys' newsletter.To support the work of the Perrys, donate via PayPal.To advertise with the Perrys, visit WithThePerrys.com/Partner.www.withtheperrys.comwww.jackiehillperry.comwww.preston-perry.com
Ezekiel & Kiyanna Azonwu have been married for 15+ years, and in this episode they talk with the Perrys about things like attraction, discerning who to pursue romantically, maintaining intimacy in marriage, and flourishing in Christian community. Did they get married too young? Is it okay to care about aesthetics? Would better discipleship in the church lead to healthier marriage relationships? Together, the Azonwus and the Perrys tackle these and many more questions about sex, dating and beauty.For more conversations like these, check out the Azonwus podcast, We Need to Talk, on YouTube, and follow Ezekiel and Kiyanna on Instagram: @wordsbyezekiel and @thisisglory This episode of With The Perrys is sponsored by: https://www.covenanteyes.com — Try Victory by Covenant Eyes FREE for 30 days with promo code PERRYS!https://magicspoon.com/PERRY — Get $5 off right now with code PERRY!

Practicing Humility

Practicing Humility

Pride is an illusion wrapped in a lie, and it's in each of us. It’s our desire for total independence from our Creator, and it makes us feel good because we feel secure and capable. But it never satisfies in the way we think it will. In this episode, Preston and Jackie discuss how keeping God as our reference point is the only way to embrace true humility. This Episode Sponsored by:https://magicspoon.com/PERRY — Get $5 off right now with code PERRY!https://liberty.edu/Perry — Get your application fee WAIVED when you start your future with Liberty University today!

How to Tell the Truth

How to Tell the Truth

2024-04-1501:02:412

Preston operates in a number of roles: husband, father, evangelist, apologist, poet... and now, he's added "author" to the list. The Perrys discuss the spiritual opposition he experienced writing his first book and why they believe the enemy didn’t want this book to reach the world. How to Tell the Truth isn't a book that teaches you how to evangelize "like Preston." It's a book that robs every believer of the excuses that keep them from sharing the Gospel. Here's the good news: you don't need seminary training to tell the world about Jesus. How to Tell the Truth: The Story of How God Saved Me to Win Hearts, Not Just Arguments releases on May 21, 2024.

In celebration of a decade of marriage, Jackie and Preston react to their wedding video and reminisce about everything from Jackie’s dress and “flower distributors” to whether or not Preston cried as she walked down the aisle and the reason they were late for their own reception. After laughing through their recollections of that day, the Perrys talk about the importance of their friendship and the beauty of learning to love one another unconditionally. This Episode Sponsored by:https://www.richmont.edu — Use promo code PERRYS to waive your application fee today Subscribe to the Perrys' newsletter.To support the work of the Perrys, donate via PayPal.To advertise with the Perrys, visit WithThePerrys.com/Partner.www.withtheperrys.comwww.jackiehillperry.comwww.preston-perry.com
Even if we’re in Christ, we can find ourselves being drawn back into former strongholds of sin and fleshly desires. The world may feel fun, but some of our “fun” has Satan attached to it, and we need deliverance. Jackie and Preston discuss the idea that we love perverted versions of pleasure – not the real thing God wants to give us. But there’s hope. If we are in Christ, we’re being sanctified every day as God regenerates us, giving us new desires, new thoughts, and new perspectives.

The story of the woman at the well is a lesson from Jesus about how to do ministry. Jesus leads with His humanity and His neediness, is curious about the woman’s life, and exposes her sin to reveal her need for God. Jackie and Preston talk through common preconceived ideas about this story and how we – like the woman – can be set out on mission after simple yet impactful encounters with Christ.

What's destructive, expensive, and detrimental to your soul? Porn. If we had eyes to see how many demons are behind pornography, we would run from it. If we knew how much the devil delights in it, it would not be appealing to us. By the grace of God, Preston has been freed from pornography for three years, and he shares his experience in this episode. God is a loving God. If you run to Him for help, He’ll sustain you. Find one of our first YouTube conversations on the topic here: Soooo, about pornography. https://www.covenanteyes.com — Try Victory by Covenant Eyes FREE for 30 days with promo code PERRYS!

A well-known pastor and radio host recently came under fire for his public opinion on attending the wedding of a same-sex couple, and it got the Perrys talking. How can you be faithful to Jesus while caring for and honoring people? This conversation starts at the foundation of the issue: knowing what you believe about God and marriage before discerning your ‘yes’ or your ‘no.’ https://www.covenanteyes.com — Try Victory by Covenant Eyes FREE for 30 days with promo code PERRYS! Resources:1: Christianity Today, "Alistair Begg Meets the Politically Correct"2: Does the Bible Support Same-Sex Marriage? by Preston Sprinkle3: Gay Girl, Good God by Jackie Hill Perry4: Finding the Right Hills to Die On by Gavin Ortlund Subscribe to the Perrys' newsletter.To support the work of the Perrys, donate via PayPal.To advertise with the Perrys, visit WithThePerrys.com/Partner.www.withtheperrys.comwww.jackiehillperry.comwww.preston-perry.com

The thought of writing a devotional never crossed Jackie's mind, but the Lord changed that. In this episode, the Perrys highlight a few things that compete for our attention and take away from adequate time in God’s Word.

Preston Sprinkle doesn’t shy away from the tension of wrestling with what the Bible says about marriage and sexuality. As his theological curiosity has led him to search the scriptures and dialogue with people in the LGBTQ community, Preston is also committed to embodying the grace and kindness of Jesus. He joins the Perrys on today’s episode to discuss some of his methods in approaching the topic of same-sex marriage. It all starts with asking the fundamental question, “What is marriage?”Follow Preston Sprinkle at PrestonSprinkle.com and check out his new book, Does the Bible Support Same-Sex Marriage?His other books include Embodied: Transgender Identities, the Church, and What the Bible Has to Say and  People to Be Loved: Why Homosexuality Is Not Just an Issue. Take our brief listener survey.  Subscribe to the Perrys' newsletter.To support the work of the Perrys, donate via PayPal.To advertise with the Perrys, visit WithThePerrys.com/Partner.www.withtheperrys.comwww.jackiehillperry.comwww.preston-perry.com
Why is it important we address sin when presenting the gospel? Because people need to know what stands in the way of their relationship with God… but how we communicate really matters. In this episode, Jackie and Preston take a look at 2 Timothy 2, which discusses character traits necessary when addressing sin. We can’t do it in our flesh. It requires dependence on the Holy Spirit.

wow I didn't realize he took it down. he hasn't said anything about it. although I have dropped his Patreon recently so maybe he said something in there. I loved it. and I don't understand why he was surprised about the reactions to the theological thursdays. like he was legit surprised that they were so controversial.

So good! What amazes me about verse 2 is as a church, we have created this rule that if there a challenges, physically or otherwise, then sin is the root! Baffles me that this is still going on. I've been victim of this accusation when my child became ill from a unknown birth defect. Lord heal our ignorance as a church to see people and not be sin hunters!

I am at min 19:11 and I see that you have spoken about irksome and dangerous relationships. But you may have missed the ones in the middle, th (psychologically) toxic relationships where someone is creating division with you and others (i.e., with you and your spouse, etc), isolating you, manipulating you. That is toxic and, at some point, boundaries might look like cutting someone off. We are quick to say that people just want an easy life but I believe most people that are seeking help for "toxic" relationships are long-suffering and have been been victimized with little support for a while (possiblely years and years). In the church, we don't talk enough about toxic, spirit draining, or verbally/emotionally abusive relationships. The world just says leave the person and cut them off; but the church says endure and love. However for how long? Until you have little to no faith? Or little to no self-esteem? This can lead to a depressive state. At some point one has to discern when that

it was your need for mercy and his response (visible repentance)! His being affected by how you were affected. Powerful because in the "church" it has been perfectly ok for only one side to be repentant while the other remain unrepentant, unaware, hard hearted, and continue in their sin. That begins to devalue the one person's humanity, spirit, and faith. It becomes ok with everyone (except God) for one to be the punching bag.

Powerful!!! Thank you for allowing God to use you in being real real! Soo important in navigating life as a Christian, this glorifies God, his mercy, power, love and grace instead of the facade and pressure of the false image of "perfection". To God be the glory!! 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

A great way to dig deeper into the understanding "toxic" friendships can be when someone first becomes a believer and them having to possibly discern their friendships when they were in a life of sin as 'toxic' to their new life in Jesus. Learning how to still love them but understanding that they may not be spiritually mature enough to endure that friend's constant presence without slipping back into their own ways.
