118. Marks of a Healthy Church Plant

Last week we chatted about Adam Ramsey’s article on Church Planting and the Idol of Immediacy. Shortly after, we realized that we spent a decent amount of time pointing out the dangers of this unhealthy way of planting, but we didn’t address what a healthy church plant actually looks like. We build off of last week’s episode by pointing out more dangers of moving too quickly, but we also address what a healthy church looks like as well as what a healthy church plant looks like. Enjoy!

117. Church Planting and the Idol of Immediacy

Today we chat about a great article that we ran across on TGC by Adam Ramsey. It addresses one of the biggest mistakes that church planters make, and it's one that we constantly feel pressure to give in to.

116. George Floyd, Racism, Injustice, Protests and Riots

Today we wade into a heavy topic. We fall desperately short of all that is needed to be said, but we pray that it's somewhat helpful as we pursue gospel-faithfulness in these strange and painful times. We need wisdom. We desire justice. We long for Jesus. EPISODE NOTES | PATREON | TIP JAR | INSTAGRAM info@simpletheology.org #simpletheologypod 614.233.1098

115. On Church Fellowship (Koinonia)

Today we take some time to look at church fellowship (or koinonia in the Greek). As churches begin to think through what it looks like to gather again, it’s important for us to have a healthy understanding of how vital the gathering is for Christians.

112. Mystery Package Unboxing

This is too fun (for Rob). So in this bonus episode, we record a special unboxing of a shipment that Rick received.

More details to be unveiled in the next episode too! EPISODE NOTES | PATREON | TIP JAR | INSTAGRAM info@simpletheology.org #simpletheologypod 614.233.1098

111. The Confessions: On Salvation

Today we wrap up our discussion on the confessions! In so doing, we fittingly discuss the doctrine of salvation. What do the Scriptures say about salvation? Why is one sin worthy of eternal judgment? What does it mean to be spiritually “dead” (Ephesians 2:1, 5)? How to remember the gospel in four words. The guys offer up three solid book recommendations.

Today we discuss the topic of Union With Christ. In so doing, the guys take a peek at Grudem’s Systematic Theology and several related passages of Scripture. Also, they bring on Wyatt Allen to join the convo! What are the implications of union with Christ? What does Scripture say about this? How many times is it referenced in Ephesians 1:3-14? How did Rob and Wyatt meet? Who on the pod just learned how to spell “spoonful?” What is an “ordinationist?” And is that even a word?

107. New Intro, No Prep, and Things We Like

In light of COVID-19, we’re trying to release a few extra episodes. In today’s ep, you’ll notice our intro music is a bit different… thoughts? Keep it? Go back to the old music? Let us know! We banter back and forth, talk about some things we like right now, and somehow get an episode cranked out with absolutely zero prep… which may be evident after you hear the content. But hey, it’s a bonus ep. Let us know what you think! EPISODE NOTES | PATREON | TIP JAR | INSTAGRAM info@simpletheology.org #simpletheologypod 614.233.1098

106. The Gospel According to Satan (Jared C. Wilson)

This week we were honored to have Jared C. Wilson in the studio (virtually) to discuss his new book, The Gospel According to Satan: Eight Lies about God that Sound Like the Truth . Jared is an Assistant Professor of Pastoral Ministry at Spurgeon College , Author in Residence at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary , General Editor of For The Church (and host of the FTC Podcast ), and Director of The Pastoral Training Center at Liberty Baptist Church in Kansas City, MO. He’s and avid writer, and has published nineteen books, with his twentieth book–Echo Island–coming out this fall through B&H. You can find a complete list of Jared’s books here . Even though he’s a Patriots fan, we were able to power through and really enjoy a great conversation about the subtle ways that Satan uses half-truths to deceive mankind. We don’t do interviews often, but interviews like this make us want to do more! EPISODE NOTES | PATREON | TIP JAR | INSTAGRAM info@simpletheology.org #simpletheologypod 614.233.1098

105. The Resurrection

For the second time (one of us forgot to record the first time around…), the guys get behind the mics this Holy Week to discuss the resurrection of Jesus Christ! Why is the resurrection important? Was Jesus the first person to ever be resurrected? How is Jesus’ resurrection different? What was Jesus resurrected to? Is belief in the resurrection required for salvation? How does the resurrection affect us today? Why does Jesus’ resurrection bring us hope? EPISODE NOTES | PATREON | TIP JAR | INSTAGRAM info@simpletheology.org #simpletheologypod 614.233.1098

104. The Confessions: On Christian Liberty

This week while in quarantine… we hit up the topic of Christian liberty and what some of the confessions have to say about it. What are some “Christian liberties?” What do the Scriptures say? (Romans 14; 1 Corinthians 8; Colossians 2). What’s the difference between legalism and liberty? Can they be abused? What about alcohol, tobacco, tattoos, etc? What in the world is a “toot-root?” EPISODE NOTES | PATREON | TIP JAR | INSTAGRAM info@simpletheology.org #simpletheologypod 614.233.1098

103. The Church and COVID-19

This week we discuss the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic again (like everyone else). But this time, we unpack how it affects our church gatherings, which many of us are sadly going without at this time. Are churches who neglect to gather in this season being unfaithful to Hebrews 10:25? What are some alternatives to a physical gathering that we're seeing? Are these alternatives equivalent to "the real thing?" What can we do to love our neighbors during this time?

102. The Confessions: On the Lord's Day

This week we’re in the confessions to discuss what they have to say regarding the Lord’s Day: What day is “the Lord’s Day?” Why do we gather on that day? Who is the gathering for? Also, the episode gets cut short thanks to... the cattle! Yep. The cattle. Tune in for more details.

101. The Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Today the guys throw up the mics to discuss an all-too-prevalent topic: The Coronavirus (COVID-19). What should we make of it? Do we think it’s going to get worse or better?
