Some might look upon the idea of "fearing the Lord" as a bad thing, but most of us — if we're being honest — will admit that we have had healthy fears of our parents and other authority figures throughout our lives. If the Creator of the very air we breath and the bodies we inhabit has specific standards and truths, we would be operating in great error to ignore that wisdom.--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

God's standards matter. The Bible repeatedly tells us where the Lord stands on various issues — as well as on the state of the human condition, with Solomon detailing in Proverbs 6 the "six things the Lord hates." These activities and character flaws might sometimes arise in our own lives, so knowing and understanding each of them can be deeply beneficial to each of us, especially as we embark on the ongoing quest to be better and stronger people.--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
In an era characterized by rampant relativism, self-control is slipping away. But no matter what culture says, the Bible calls us to personal restraint, with moral parameters guiding our paths. When we reject God's order and live life for ourselves, we're on spiritual quicksand. Here's why.--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
There's a lot of talk today about "following your heart." The generally spouted mantras are "be true to yourself" and "be who you want to be," but there's an important reality that these feel-good slogans fail to take into account: we must first be who God wants us to be.--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
Our view of the world — and creation — impacts our entire existence. It dictates how we interact with people and institutions, and how we respond to moral choices. Unfortunately, it's becoming more and more difficult in our "everything goes" era to discover truth and, in turn, to live that truth out. In the end, though, truth is fixed; it doesn't ebb, it doesn't flow — and it certainly doesn't bend to individual whims. How are you measuring up?--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
Where do your morals, values and ethics come from? This is an essential question, because, whether we realize it, each one of us has a defined moral and ethical framework — and many of our ideas come from what we choose to put into our hearts and minds.--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
What is knowledge? That's a question that is becoming increasingly difficult for our modern world to answer. That said, the Bible is pretty clear about where knowledge comes from, what it is, and where we can obtain it.Sure, schooling and college are great. But life is about more than earthly education. Let's dive right in.--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
How should we respond when unimaginable tragedy strikes, when everything around us seems to be imploding — or when life simply doesn't go as planned? These are monumental questions we all face at various points throughout our lives, as we encounter an array of struggles, pain and unexpected happenings. Here's my response.
"Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt us." This is a nice slogan, but is it biblical? Here's why the answer to that question truly matters.

Colossians 3 has a powerful message about dying to self that should have us all do a double take. We're called to rid ourselves of anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language -- but are we failing? Here's some hope.
Prayer is powerful, yet we live in a chaotic world. Kids, family, work, responsibilities and other barriers sometimes cause us to forget the power and importance of prayer. And in an increasingly secular culture, it's easy to simply diminish or ignore what can truly happen if we seek God daily. Here are eight prayers and areas of focus that will change our lives — and the lives of others.--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
We’ve thrown respect out the window and exchanged it with this obsessive belief that what we believe, feel and say is what matters most. This faulty ideology will destroy us — unless we cling to true hope.
Culture tells us we're perfect, that we can do anything we want -- and do it with glee. Realty TV rewards the unthinkable. Relativism rages. But the Bible calls us to something very different. Here are the four questions we all must answer.--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
