Conviction and Communication

Today Jimmy and Joe wind up talking about church communication and conviction by revisiting a topic they hit on Monday’s episode, and answering one listener’s email about his own church. A brother, and member of First Baptist Church Jacksonville, pushed back on our discussion of FBC’s new membership requirement.

10 Years of Beholding God: Paul Washer, pt 1

Our flagship study, Behold Your God: Rethinking God Biblically has been released for over a decade. In that time, we have been indescribably happy to see the Lord choose to use this study in so many ways across so many lands. We never could have imagined it going as far as it has.
One reason we thought it would be a small study was because so few of our contributors had recognizable names. The only person with any considerable following was Paul Washer. Paul had been a friend to us for many years before we made this study, but when the opportunity came we knew we could trust him to speak truthfully and boldly. We are grateful he took time out of his schedule to speak with us.
As with other interviews, Paul’s is longer than our typical podcast length. So we will release part two and part three of his interview in the coming months.
