Ask the Question

By Carlie Tice Cleveland
The Ask the Question Podcast seeks to ask honest, real, and raw questions about faith, Christianity, and the Bible to help encourage believers to dig deeply into scripture to find the answer. Join me and my guests as we strive to share both sides of the issues, a diversity of opinions, and answer the question, "why do we believe what we believe?" Together, we can strengthen our faiths by answering the questions we have about God, Jesus, and the Bible.

Does God Ordain Polygamy? - Ask the Question Episode #11
Today let's ask the question: Does God Ordain Polygamy?  The Bible is full of a lot of polygamists... like a lot. So, does that mean God ordains Polygamy? Does He allow it? Does Polygamy honor God's intention and design for the union of marriage? Join Kristine McDowell and I as we look through some passages about marriage, God's goodness throughout scripture, and the complexities of polygamy. We share some of our thoughts and opinions, but our goal is not to tell you what you believe. Instead, we seriously encourage you to ask why you believe what you do and search scripture deeply for the answers.    Find Today's Guest:  Kristine McDowell   @Kristine_M_31  https://www.etsy.com/shop/RadiantRuth

Can a Person See God's Face? - Ask the Question Episode #10
Today let's ask the question: Can a Person See God's Face?    Did the Bible contradict itself when it says God talked with Moses "face to face" and then in the same chapter, says Moses would die if he looked at God?  Join me and my guest David Osredkar as we take a look at the topic of looking at & speaking with God in scripture. Sometimes, when we come across what look like contradictions, it can make us withdraw and feel fear that the Bible could be wrong. David and I take this topic head on and find more and more that when we tackle the tough questions directly, it can actually help us see the divine inspiration of scripture and make sense of what seems not to.  We share some of our thoughts and opinions, but our goal is not to tell you what you believe. Instead, we seriously encourage you to ask why you believe what you do and search scripture deeply for the answers.   Find Today's Guest: David Osredkar CarlieCleveland.com @CarlieRaeCleveland

What's the Role of Prostitution in the Bible? - Ask the Question Episode # 9
Today let's ask the question: What's the role of prostitution in the Bible?  What does the law say? What about the New Testament?  Join me and my guest Andelina Sedgewick as we take a look at prostitution in scripture. The Bible can be weird and sometimes feel scary, but we don't have to be afraid to be honest with scripture or with God. As Andelina and I chat about, often when we start to dig into the things in the Bible that feel scary, they actually lead us closer to understanding God's kindness, goodness, and love. We share some of our thoughts and opinions, but our goal is not to tell you what you believe. Instead, we seriously encourage you to ask why you believe what you do and search scripture deeply for the answers.   @CarlieRaeCleveland CarlieCleveland.com

What are some messages the media paints about topics like possession and spirits, and are they rooted anywhere in scripture? What does the Bible say about Satan and the fallen angels? Are our theological beliefs about spiritual warfare actually from scripture? I share some of my thoughts and opinions, but my goal is not to tell you what you believe.

How Engaged Should Christians be in Politics? - Ask the Question Episode # 6
Today let's ask the question: How engaged should Christians be in politics? How should our faith inform how we show up in political spaces as followers of Jesus?   Join me and my favorite ever guest, best friend, long-haired wonder, and the most handsome man alive, my husband! Our goal today is to search the Bible to try to understand what it tells us in regards to submitting to political leaders, taxes, and how we should engage with the other side of our political aisles. If you're in search of a political debate or Christians telling you who to vote for you've come to the wrong video. There are enough people on the internet telling you what to believe, and this is a discussion intended to be a thought & question starter. We share our thoughts and opinions, but our goal is not to tell you what you believe. Instead, we encourage you to ask why you believe what you do and search scripture deeply for the answers.   Find Mason on Instagram:  @MasonClvld @AirOps.DroneMedia
