2008-11-01 :: nftw@sbcglobal.net (Richard J.)

One church closed last Sunday so that its attendees could “be” the church. What would it mean if we all were committed to living out a New Testament faith?

Also, are you trying to squeeze yourself into a life that doesn’t fit you anymore?

NFTW #008--Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays?; Bearing each others burdens

2007-11-16 :: nftw@sbcglobal.net (Richard J.)

Listen to it now!



This week we'll jump into the controversy surrounding Christians shopping at stores that celebrate the "Holidays" instead of Christmas. My question is this: is that the most important consideration for Christians this Christmas season?

Also, how does God reveal Himself in our lives through other believers?

Here are some links to the Christmas shopping dilemma:

The Christian Post article. Here's how Chinese Christians celebrate.
The Naughty and Nice list.


Joel's great post on openness and vulnerability got me thinking about Galatians 6.

NFTW #002--Why we build up leaders; What have I placed between God and me?

2007-11-12 :: nftw@sbcglobal.net (Richard J.)

Listen to it now!



This week, I've got some opinions about the recent spate of marital troubles involving well-known preachers. My take might be a bit surprising.

Also, I believe that everybody, including Christians, try to hide from God. Why? Have I put up any barriers between myself and God? Those are the questions we'll kick around during our time looking at the Bible.

Hope you enjoy! If you have any comments or questions, leave 'em here, or at nftw@sbcglobal.net.

NFTW #006--Who should Christians vote for?; God wants all kinds of people in His family!

Episode 6 is here, and I can't help myself--I've got to comment on all the silliness surrounding the Mitt Romney campaign. I mean, I know he's a Mormon, but is that reason enough not to vote for him?

Also, it seems that Jesus ministered to all sorts of people when He was here. And, his 12 disciples came from very different backgrounds. What does that tell us about the heart of God?

Here's a link to the Romney article.

NFTW #004--Book review: "The Insider"; Finding common ground; Do I believe what the Bible clearly says?

Listen to it now!



This week, I tell you about a book that has made a big difference in my life. It's called The Insider, by Jim Petersen. Go get it!

I also have some thoughts on this article from the Christian Post. Can evangelicals and progressives find common political ground? I'm not sure that we're asking the right questions.

Also, the Bible is really clear about how God feels about me. Why do I have trouble believing it?

Take care, everybody! If you have a question, comment, or idea, let me know in the comments, or at nftw@sbcglobal.net.…
