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 have avoided this epidsode like the plague until today, and I just wanted you to know that God has spoken a lot of grace into my heart through your willingness to be honest about your current struggles. So thank you for that.
That intro was too funny! 😂😂 Deddy haha Good word y'all!
I am currently going through a divorce and this conversation is bringing so much clarity. Thank you
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 type of relationship becomes injurious to your well- being.
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.
Jude1:24&25 (one of my fave)...
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.
This was so incredibly encouraging to me. Thank you!
💯💯💯 This 🔥🔥🔥
#mindblown this discussion was so deep and profound! I was not expecting that. Your love for each other even in the face of trials is beautiful
can I ask like, what was the process you (Preston) took to walk away from that sin? because I've fell into that place where I prayed and said I'd never do it again but I keep going back.
Excellent show y'all! I love the transparency and courage.
love the both of your openness and vunerability. thank you for displaying how when we confess our sons He is faithful and just to forgive us and cleanse us. beautiful!
Just when I was starting to question God and His existence, he threw me you. Thank you
