When it comes to shows like Game of Thrones and the like, many Christians are conflicted about how to handle them because of all the gratuitous violence and nudity. Should they watch them? Should they boycott them? There's a host of opinions, but not a lot of nuance to the conversation, which is what we try to accomplish. Join us for a thought provoking discussion about violence, sex, nudity, and the Jesus follower.
In part 4, Brian and Aaron discuss how Jesus was a friend of sinners, we hear a testimony from Nathaniel Bedson, and a discussion on self righteousness and our personal struggles with this sin by a group of Calvary Pastors (Zak Shellabarger, Wavey Cowper, Char Brodersen, and Bryan Stupar.)
What does it mean to be Self-Righteous? What is Legalism?
In This episode of the Righteousness Series we take a look at the "Selective Sanctification" that comes with self righteousness, explore what Jesus meant when he said our righteousness must exceed the righteousness of the Pharisees, and look at how our standing with God has less to do with us and more to do with Christ.
Hosts Brian and Aaron discuss Legalism, while guests Nick Cady, Brian Stupar, and Wavey Cowpar discuss the pitfalls of self righteousness that Christians can easily fall into!
Brian and Aaron answer rapid-fire questions from guys who are just getting started as youth workers.
How do you balance life and ministry when you work part time?
How do you lead when your volunteers are older than you?
How can you empower your leaders to have a bigger role?
How do you measure success in youth ministry?
How do you build community coming into a new place
What are some practical steps in developing a strong leadership team
When planning a youth camp/retreat what have you found to be the best structure. Should they be more Bible study focused or free time/fellowship focused or maybe even something completely different?
Brian Higgins and Aaron Salvato share from their combined 20+ years of Youth Ministry experience by answering the question... "What would you tell your younger self about youth ministry if you could travel back in time to your first year as a youth pastor?"
In episode 2 we explore the relationship between righteousness and sin. We look at how Jesus deals with sinners in the story of the woman caught in Adultery. Brian Higgins and Aaron Salvato discuss what Sin actually is and how it relates to righteousness, and pastor Brian Stupar shares with us strategies to overcome the endless cycles of guilt and shame. Finally we hear a true story from Aaron about how righteousness was found in the middle of a friend's lies and drug addiction.
The GoodLion Podcast is launching it's first mini series! We will be doing a deep dive into the topic of Righteousness. For episode one, we ask the question, what exactly is Righteousness? Aaron Salvato presents the topic, and we hear a helpful explanation from Dr. Tim Mackie (the Bible Project.) Join us as we go deep into this Biblical topic!
In our first episode of the GoodLion Podcast, Creative-Director Aaron Salvato sits down with Ben Courson to interview him about the recent loss of his brother Peter-John. The two discuss loss, grief, coping with tragedy, and share experiences and insight from their lives.
