[display_podcast] Welcome to the Big Picture Podcast. I’m Joel Fieri and this podcast seeks to begin and hopefully sustain a conversation about current trends, ideas and issues in the Church and greater society. Today I wanted to follow up on my podcast from a couple weeks ago with the Backrow Baptist, the guy in the back pew who can’t quiet keep the rhythm or sing on-key. You’ve seen him, and he’s seen you. On that podcast we were talking about how to respond to our rapidly secularizing cultur … [Read more...]

An-Examined-Life-Square-Icon

[display_podcast] Comedian Jeffrey Jena, one of my closest friends on the planet, joins the show as we reminisce about our hazy early days in stand up comedy – which leads directly to memory loss due to getting older and frying brain cells when we were younger. You see, where some people have problems remembering things and simply blame it on a “senior moment”, Jeffrey and I know that there are entire sections of our cranium that were burned out at a Led Zeppelin concert in the mid-70’s. But h … [Read more...]

It’s impossible to lead a Christian life if the Holy Spirit isn’t empowering you. When you became a Christian, God’s Spirit came to live inside of you, and He wants to have total freedom to empower you and influence you in the choices you make throughout your life. But you also have your own flesh – the reality of your sinful nature – still in you battling with the Holy Spirit over your will.In Ephesians 5, we learn about what it’s like to turn away from ungodly things, and then we read in ve … [Read more...]

[display_podcast] Let’s start out with some stats:On a per capita basis, the group that’s leading in increased incidents of sexually transmitted disease is the 10 to 14-year-old age group. In 1970, less than 5% of all 15-year-old girls had had sex. By 1988 that number rose to 25%. Current estimates say that 20% of our high schoolers graduate with their virginity. Of those who have had sex, 30% of them have it once and then don’t do it again. Another 30% have had four partners or more … [Read more...]

[display_podcast] Call it what you will… The Unpardonable Sin. The Unforgivable Sin. No matter what the name, the consequences are unimaginable. In this PODCAST (which I believe for you will find to be enormously encouraging and reassuring), you will learn exactly what this sin is, what this sin isn’t, whether or not it is possible today to commit this sin, and if so, whether or not you have or ever will commit it. In terms of its eternal ramifications, no conversation is more vitally impor … [Read more...]

[display_podcast] God uses flawed people to do His work!  One of the most well-known example of this is from the Book of Judges in the Old Testament.  I give you:  Sampson!  If you look at the things Sampson was supposed to do and the life that he was supposed to lead, he basically did everything wrong.  And when I say everything, I mean EVERYTHING!  He breaks his vow as a Nazarite, he hangs out with prostitutes, he compromises his faith and devotions with his relationship with Delilah... and y … [Read more...]
