Removing Barriers

By Removing Barriers
Many barriers exist that can prevent us from seeing the cross clearly. We want to attempt to remove those barriers and share the gospel.

But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear (1 Peter 3:15).

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. (Romans 1:16)

RBP 105: Abortion: Featuring Life First Pregnancy Center | Guest: Becky Sheetz
Episode 105 On the frontlines of the abortion issue in the United States are hundreds of pregnancy resource centers, providing help, healthcare, and counseling to women in crisis pregnancy situations all over the country (and services are extended to the children's fathers as well). Unlike Planned Parenthood that provides death services under the guise of healthcare, pregnancy resource centers actually provide prenatal care (many with free ultrasounds) in order to help people make the best decision in their situation: protecting the life of the innocent preborn child. Some of the people seeking their help do not choose that optimal outcome, but these centers lovingly provide the care anyway. They've also been the target of attacks, both political and physical, and many people are not clear on what services they actually provide. In this episode of the Removing Barriers podcast, we interview Becky Sheetz, CEO of Life First Pregnancy Medical Center, a pregnancy resource center in Virginia. In this interview, we learn about all that pregnancy resource centers have to offer, what their needs are, and how you can join the effort and help.

RBP 104: Abortion: The Legal and Social Perspective (Part 2 of 2) | Guest: Mike and Sam
Episode 104 In this episode of the Removing Barriers podcast, we continue our discussion on the legal and social perspectives on abortion with Sam and Mike from episode 103. The reaction to the Supreme Court's decision has galvanized millions to pull out all the stops to see the ruling reversed. What would that mean for the country, however, and what legal and social fallout can we expect from the decision and the reactions to it? As already mentioned, this recording is a continuation of the conversation from episode 103. We engage in conversation exploring the legitimacy of the Supreme Court, then pivot to discussing the impact abortion has had on the black community. Join us as Mike, the Lawyer and Sam, the Engineer share their wisdom and opinions on the Removing Barriers podcast.

RBP 103: Abortion: The Legal and Social Perspective (Part 1 of 2) | Guest: Mike and Sam
Episode 103 With the overturning of Roe v. Wade in June of 2022, the reactions have been at once intense and galvanizing on both sides all over the country.  We have found, however, that many responses are shaped by misinformation and incorrect assumptions, supposing the ruling does something it does not actually do. What exactly does the overturning of Roe v. Wade mean for the country as a whole? What does it mean for the states? What legal and social ramifications are there, and how should the church consider them? Join us as we explore these questions with lawyer Mike and his brother Sam on the Removing Barriers podcast.  Listen to the Removing Barriers Podcast here: Spotify: https://cutt.ly/Ega8YeI Apple Podcast: https://cutt.ly/Vga2SVd Google Podcast: https://cutt.ly/Rga25WD Stitcher: https://cutt.ly/GgP1L46 YouTube: https://cutt.ly/mga8A77 Podnews: https://podnews.net/podcast/i4jxo See all our platforms: https://removingbarriers.net Contact us: Leave us a voice message: https://anchor.fm/removingbarriers/message Email us: https://removingbarriers.net/contact Financially support the show: https://removingbarriers.net/donate Affiliates: SWAPP: https://theswapp.io/ Book Shop: https://bookshop.org/shop/removingbarriers Answers in Genesis Bookstore: https://shrsl.com/2tu8i Design It Yourself Gift Baskets: https://shrsl.com/2m64o Ivacy:  https://shrsl.com/2jz3c Share a Sale: https://shrsl.com/2jz4f See all our affiliates: https://removingbarriers.net/affiliates Notes: Dobbs v.

RBP 102: Abortion: The Biblical Perspective | Guest: Pastor Todd
Episode 102 Christians and other pro-lifers across the country rejoiced when the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in June of 2022. But there is yet more work to be done. The number of abortions taking place that we know of inevitably includes women who are a part of a church, or worse yet, profess Christ. That's right, Christian women across the country are either getting abortions, considering getting an abortion, see nothing wrong with abortion, or are being pressured by others to get an abortion. What does this mean? How could this be? One likely explanation is that many (too many) in the Church may not be looking to the scriptures to lay out how we should be thinking about abortion. What does the Bible say about life in the womb? Is it even a life? Since the Bible does not mention "abortion," how can we prove from the scriptures that it is sin? On this episode of the Removing Barriers podcast, we interview recurring guest Pastor Todd to get a clear understanding of God's heart and decree on the issue.

RBP 101: Celebrating 100 Episodes of Removing Barriers
Episode 101 Every so often and at certain milestones, it is good to look back and reflect on where you've come from, and how God has worked along the way. Nearly two years ago now, U.S. cities were on fire, racial tensions were at an all time high, and the historically obvious nature of gender was now up for debate. Though the temptation was great to fume and rant at the talking heads on TV, the Lord put it on our hearts to start a podcast that would address these issues (and many others) from a biblical perspective with the aim of removing barriers that hinder a clear view of the cross. Thus, the Removing Barriers podcast was born. Today, we praise and thank God for 100 episodes, and we look forward to what He has planned next on the Removing Barriers Podcast.

Jay sits on the other side of the microphones to give testimony of how the Lord Jesus Christ removed the barriers she had to salvation. Her religious upbringing mixed with her own apathy and carelessness created those barriers, but they were no match for the Savior. Her testimony also highlights God's patient faithfulness in continuing to remove barriers after salvation: the many barriers to sanctification and growth.

Episode 98 Series: How Were Your Barriers Removed - 28 Paul is a gentle giant who loves music. In fact, he loves music so much that as a youngster he lied about being saved and was baptized just to be able to play in his church orchestra and sing with the choir. It took a car accident and the prayers and conversation of a godly wife to tear down his barriers and bring him to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. Join us on this episode of the Removing Barriers podcast and learn how Paul was gloriously saved. 1 Peter 3: 1, 2, "Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives; While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear."

RBP 92: Slavery, The Bible and Christians (Part 2 of 2) | Guest: Missionary Marco
Episode 92 In this episode of the Removing Barriers podcast, we continue our discussion with Missionary Marco on Slavery, The Bible and Christians. This time we evaluate the institution in its historicity and what implications that has for us today. Why did great thinkers like Aristotle think slavery was a necessary part of civilization? In light of American history, was slavery necessary? Why was it so difficult to abolish slavery? Missionary Marco tackles these questions head on and answers other questions like these in the light of the gospel.

RBP 90: Black Republicans: an Oxymoron?
Episode 90 The ladies of the View have struck again. Sunny Hostin dismissed a guest on the View, declaring that Black and Latino Republicans are an oxymoron and that she doesn't understand them. We can be certain that millions of Americans share both her attitude and sentiment, so it is good to unpack it and hold it up against scripture. What, if anything, is so hard to understand about black republicans? Is it racist to consider them an oxymoron? Join us on this episode of the Removing Barriers podcast as we explore what her statement really means, and what Christians have to say about it.

RBP 89: Elon Musk and the Babylon Bee
Episode 89 What does it mean to share the gospel? What exactly are we doing each time we proclaim the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ?  In this episode of the Removing Barriers podcast, we weigh in on Babylon Bee's interview with Elon Musk, the world's foremost engineer and business magnate. In it, the Bee made a controversial gospel presentation to Musk, and the reaction to his answer was even more controversial. The interaction lit up a storm of reactions from all sides. Some found it to be in line with the Bee's brand while others found it appalling and inappropriate, satire or not.  Join us in this episode as we discuss it, and we'd love to hear your thoughts on the matter as well.  Listen to the Removing Barriers Podcast here: Spotify: https://cutt.ly/Ega8YeI Apple Podcast: https://cutt.ly/Vga2SVd Google Podcast: https://cutt.ly/Rga25WD Stitcher: https://cutt.ly/GgP1L46 YouTube: https://cutt.ly/mga8A77 Podnews: https://podnews.net/podcast/i4jxo See all our platforms: https://removingbarriers.net Contact us: Leave us a voice message: https://anchor.fm/removingbarriers/message Email us: https://removingbarriers.net/contact Financially support the show: https://removingbarriers.net/donate Affiliates: Answers in Genesis Bookstore: https://shrsl.com/2tu8i Design It Yourself Gift Baskets: https://shrsl.com/2m64o Ivacy:  https://shrsl.com/2jz3c Use Coupon Code "RemovingBarriers" for 20% off Book Shop: https://bookshop.org/shop/removingbarriers Share a Sale: https://shrsl.com/2jz4f See all our affiliates: https://removingbarriers.net/affiliates Notes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=21zvCaVwazI

RBP 88: Cheering for Brandon and Respecting the Office of the President
Episode 88 When Brandon Brown won his race in fall of 2021, he couldn't have known that his victory interview would become an international phenomenon used in the culture war to express disapproval of the media and disdain for the president of the United States. The minced oath has even made its way up to the White House. While Christians may share an antagonistic relationship with the current administration, is it appropriate for them to join the throng and use the phrase? What do the scriptures have to say about the office of the president and how we are to interact with it?

Episode 87 Series: How Were Your Barriers Removed - 25 This week, we continue the How Were Your Barriers Removed series in an interview with recurring guest MD. Traditionally in this series, we focus on the barriers people have regarding salvation, but there are also barriers after salvation that can keep us from seeing the cross clearly in all areas of our lives. MD was born into a Christian household to parents involved in ministry and gives testimony of having been saved very early on in life.  In this episode, he shares some of the barriers he encountered after salvation, and how the Lord proved Himself to be the Author and Finisher of his faith, just as He promises to be the same for all who will trust Him.

RBP 86: Whoopi, the Holocaust, and Race
Episode 86 Back in January of 2022, Whoopi Goldberg declared on the View that the Holocaust was not about race, but instead a case of white-on-white brutality showcasing the evil that man is capable of toward his fellow man. She received significant criticism for it, with sentiments ranging from horrified indignation to merciful understanding of what she was actually trying to say. But what, exactly, was she trying to say? On this episode of the Removing Barriers podcast, we are going to try and hash that out.

RBP 85: Lila LeBaron, How Were Your Barriers Removed?
Episode 85 Series: How Were Your Barriers Removed - 24 Today we continue the series exploring how the Lord Jesus Christ removes barriers in sinners' lives to bring about salvation. In this latest installment, we sit down with Lila Lebaron to hear about how her barriers were removed. Lila, a young lady Christ saved out of Mormonism, grew up in a polygamist community in Chihuahua, Mexico. Though her surroundings presented a set of barriers to salvation, it was the unseen barriers within her that threatened to gobble her up whole. But Christ overcame them to save her soul: the fear, the doubt, the guilt, the hopelessness. Join us on this episode of the Removing Barriers podcast as Lila proclaims how Christ not only saved her from those internal monsters, but broke her free from Mormonism's damning grasp as well.

RBP 84: Soulwinning and the Church | Guest: Edward Thal
Episode 84 Consider these startling findings by Ligonier Ministries' biannual State of Theology survey of professing Christians: 54% agree that religious belief is a matter of personal opinion; it is not about objective truth. 65% agree that everyone sins a little, but most people are good by nature. Only 25% agree that even the smallest sin deserves eternal damnation. These findings may provide some insight into why a majority of professing Christians not only see soul-winning as optional, but also feel it is inappropriate to actively evangelize the world around us. In this episode of the Removing Barriers podcast, we sit down with Edward Thal and talk about soul-winning: what is it, and why should we care? Edward Thal has been actively soul-winning for over 30 years, has been on the mission field, and has organized outreach efforts for churches. May this episode spur us to fervent soul-winning and heartfelt love and obedience to Christ.

Edward Thal was a very successful business man in South Africa where he was born and raised, but he walked away from it all and moved to the west as he began an earnest search for God. When God was pleased to reveal Himself, the barriers came tumbling down and his new life in Christ took off.

RBP 82: Dr. Lynn Wilder, How Were Your Barriers Removed?
Episode 82 Series: How Were Your Barriers Removed - 22 In this episode of the Removing Barriers podcast, we interview the mother of Micah Wilder, Dr. Lynn Wilder. Micah Wilder is a former Mormon missionary who came to faith in Christ after hearing the gospel from a Baptist pastor he was trying to convert to Mormonism. (Listen to Micah's testimony: https://removingbarriers.net/rbp_68/). After coming to genuine faith, he challenged his mother to read the scriptures like a child to see God for who He is. Dr. Lynn Wilder took him up on his challenge and by God's mercy, she encountered the true Christ and came to genuine faith. The barrier of Mormonism was a formidable one, especially since she was both a Mormon for 30 years and a tenured professor at Brigham Young University, but it was no match for the exceeding excellencies of the gospel of Christ. Join us as we find out how God tore those barriers down and how He is using her testimony to draw lost hearts to Him from all over the globe.

RBP 81: Afghanistan: A Missionary's Perspective | Guest: Missionary Scott
Episode 81 In the summer of 2021, the world witnessed the unmitigated disaster of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan. Like unwilling witnesses to a train wreck in progress, we were unable to look away as the nightmare unfolded. Desperate civilians clinging to departing planes fell to their deaths. Babies were handed to troops across barbed wire. The Taliban acquired abandoned military equipment and weapons. Allies and American citizens were abandoned behind enemy lines. The country fell to the Taliban in a matter of days. To boot, 13 American service members and about 70 Afghan citizens were killed in a suicide bombing at Hamid Karzai International Airport were untold numbers of people were waiting for a flight out. Though virtually everyone is in agreement that the withdrawal was a failure, opinions are still split as to whether the U.S. should have withdrawn in the first place. In this episode on the Removing Barriers podcast, we have a conversation with Missionary Scott about this, what the withdrawal means for both countries moving forward, and other things that we should keep in mind as we evaluate this historic event.

Episode 80  Series: On the Mission Field - 6 Uruguay is a vibrant country in South America of nearly 3.5 million souls. Though different ethnicities exist, the people there are mostly homogenous in culture, language, and in a general disposition of agnosticism (though 57% report to be Christian). It is ripe for the propagation of the gospel of Jesus Christ, and in this episode of the Removing Barriers Podcast we talk with Marco, a missionary to Uruguay who is doing just that. After acknowledging God's call on his life, Marco pulled up stakes and settled down there, engaging with the people about the gospel and taking down barriers to salvation through the power of Christ. Join us on this latest installment of the On the Mission Field series to hear about God's work in Uruguay, and how he is using men like Marco to tear down barriers to salvation in the lives of Uruguayans all around him.

RBP 75: Defunding the Police and the Human Sinful Nature | Guest: Officer CigarBro and DW
Episode 75  The "Defund the Police" movement was not new when the circumstances surrounding George Floyd's death set it ablaze and transformed it into national sentiment. Definitions range from reallocating police funds to other social services to abolishment of the police altogether. The slogan evokes strong reactions from both sides of the aisle and has had tangible effects on society; whether for good or bad is up for debate. In this episode of the Removing Barriers podcast, we revisit the movement and evaluate its effect upon whom it centers: the police. Recurring guest Officer CigarBro (obviously not his name) joins us for the discussion with DW joining later to evaluate the spiritual implications of the movement.

RBP 74: Was Jesus Woke?
Episode 74 Though in use since the 1940s, the term "woke" has become a very popular and common term to describe someone who is 'awake' to the systemic injustices perceived in institutional, political, societal, or cultural structures and seeks to actively combat them. In our day, it is describing someone who more often than not aligns with the moral and political ideologies of the left. Jesus, many claim, would be woke if He were walking the earth today. But is this true? Would Jesus affirm the ideologies championed by BLM, GLAAD, DNC, and others like them? Or does woke simply mean that Jesus would not turn a blind eye to the injustice that inevitably exists in an imperfect world by sinful men? On this episode of the Removing Barriers podcast, we explore these questions and seek to answer: what does it mean to be 'woke' and would Jesus be on that bandwagon?

RBP 73: Ahmaud Arbery and Citizen's Arrest
Episode 73 The murder of Ahmaud Arbery in February of 2020 sent shockwaves throughout the country and galvanized the cries of  activist groups and race baiters alike. At the end of the confrontation, a black man was dead and three white men claimed self defense while attempting to conduct a citizen's arrest. This has brought the question of citizen's arrest into the spotlight. What is it, who can make it, and when? Where is the line between self-defense and citizen's arrest? Did Arbery have the right to defend himself? In this episode of the Removing Barriers podcast, we explore these questions and grapple with their implications as people living in a fallen world and the Savior Jesus Christ who has made the way to save us from them. Post script: At the time of the publishing of this podcast, both Travis and Gregory McMichael were sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole plus 20 years. William Bryan was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 30 years.

RBP 72: On the Mission Field with Missionary J. Loveday
Episode 72 On this episode of the Removing Barriers podcast, we are off to the mission field to hear from Missionary J. Loveday, missionary to Spain. Regarding a country with as rich a history as Spain's, it will be exciting to hear about the people, culture, and religions that shape the spiritual landscape that he serves in every day. Though perhaps Catholicism comes to mind when we think of the dominant religion in Spain, it is fascinating to note that other religions play a huge role in erecting barriers between people and Christ. How does the missionary tackle these barriers? What is God doing today in the country of Spain? What can we do to be a part of it? Join us on this episode to answer these questions and more.

RBP 70: The Star-Spangled Banner: Racist?
Episode 70 A growing number of Americans are expressing anti-America sentiment, most recently in declaring the national anthem racist. The anthem, they say, contains references to the slave and was written by a slaveholder and is therefore fundamentally racist. Is any of this true? What is the history of the anthem and its author? What of the reference to the slave? Should we continue to sing the anthem, or should it be replaced? Join us on this episode of the Removing Barriers podcast to explore this topic and consider how we should respond.

RBP 69: KJV and the Canon of Scripture | Guest: Pastor Todd
Episode 69 Any conversation about the trustworthiness of the Bible will inevitably include questions regarding authorship, errors, preservation, and the plethora of Bible versions available. These are important questions, especially since the Bible makes exclusive and very heavy claims that are of consequence to all people. So how can we know if the Bible can be trusted? Do we even have it in its entirety? What about all of the allegations of errors, omissions, and additions? In this episode of the Removing Barriers podcast, we have a conversation with Pastor Todd about this most influential Book, and how we can know whether it is trustworthy.

RBP 68: Micah Wilder, How Were Your Barriers Removed?
Episode 68 Series: How Were Your Barriers Removed - 18 In this episode of the Removing Barriers podcast, we interview Micah Wilder, one of the founding members of Adam's Road Ministries. Adam's Road is a ministry that seeks to glorify God and point everyone to the cross through song and testimony. A devoted Mormon up until the moment of his salvation, Micah's zeal for knowing and serving God drove him to serve as an LDS missionary with almost Pauline ferocity. He sought to convert a Baptist minister to Mormonism, only to hear a clear and compelling presentation of the gospel for the very first time. That moment changed him forever and set off a chain of events that leads him to where he is today: a genuine believer in the Lord Jesus Christ. There were a few barriers between him and salvation, though, so join us on this episode as we discover what those barriers were and how the Lord removed them to bring Micah to a true knowledge of Himself.
