Special Episode I: Behold Your God: Rethinking God Biblically

Many of you know Media Gratiae through our podcast network, but we do much more. We have also produced documentary films and multimedia Bible studies.

Every year we take a few weeks to present you with some of the teachings we have produced over the years. This week we want to highlight our first 12-week study, Behold Your God: Rethinking God Biblically.

This is session one: Beholding God: The Great Attraction. In this session, John is in Chicago, Illinois to introduce A. W. Tozer. If you have been through this study, we pray it is a reminder of the things God taught you through this 12 weeks. If you have never been through the study, may it whet your appetite for more.

Because we are highlighting this study on The Whole Counsel, we are discounting the study at the link above 10% normal price. The sale will end when next week’s episode is published.

Long Hair and Legalism

Someone said something on the internet and Joe and Jimmy talk about it. Ok, it was Dr. Strachen, and he was calling on men to cut their long hair. Like a scene out of an 80’s movie. Does 1 Corinthians 11:2–16 teach that long hair on a man is inherently sinful? What was the real message behind Strachen’s post? Was the message lost in the way it was presented?Support this podcast at — https://redcircle.com/doctrine-and-devotion/exclusive-contentAdvertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brands

Consider Revival V: Seeking Revival Practically

This is the fifth and final episode of John Snyder and Steve Crampton discussing revival. Last week they introduced a little book called The Causes of the Lord’s Wrath against Scotland Manifested in His Sad, Late Dispensations. In that book, Presbyterian pastors across Scotland joined together to discuss why God’s wrath was being poured out on Scotland. They didn’t point to the rebellious culture, but to themselves and their own sins.

To aid in their repentance, they pointed out particular sins they were guilty of and then joined together in congregational repentance. In this episode, John and Steve pick some of the confessions they find most applicable to our day and time.
