What actually is worship', and is there a correct way to do it?

The Pulse Podcast by Our God Given Mission

Why do Christians remain sick after praying, fasting etc? Are some of us not meant to be healed?
The notion that Christians must be healed from their illness after being prayed for or fasting on the matter is a controversial topic in the Christian faith. Is it our unbelief, our faith, our sins that causes illness to remain or does God simply not want to heal us? Does he not love us? In this episode, we'll go over this topic and explore it in more details!

How can God punish sinners and be loving at the same time?
The perception of God today is that of a God that punishes the innocent, stays silent in our suffering and isn't powerful enough to save us. Is all this a punishment? Can we call a God like this loving? In this episode, we unpack how God has always shown his love to us, before the cross, on the cross and still today! Can God still love us and still maintain his justice?

Why Did Jesus Have to Die For Us?
In a cultural climate that is becoming more acquainted with self-love and extending grace to ourselves, why doesn’t God let bygones be bygones? Why can’t he just overlook our wrongdoings and just forgive us with no strings attached?

Why Is God So Different in the Old Testament than He Is in the New Testament?
When you turn the page from the end of the Old Testament to the beginning of the New Testament, it can seem like you are entering a different world. Where the God of the Old Testament seems like the god of wrath, whereas the God of the New Testament is a god of love. However, Mike omoniyi teaches that New Testament authors consistently claim that the God revealed in the Old Testament is the same God who is now revealing himself in and through Jesus Christ.

Does The Bible Contain Errors?
Mike Omoniyi shares how the affirmation of the truthfulness of the Bible is inextricably tied to the character of God himself. God is a truthful God who does not lie.

Is Hell Literal Or Metaphoric
In the UK, whilst 45% of people believe in Heaven, less than 40% of the population believe that Hell exists. However, Jesus was not short on teachings about Hell. The Apostle Paul spoke about the fate of the wicked after death over 80 times in his letters (more than he spoke about mercy, forgiveness or Heaven combined). If we want to see Christ-like families, Christ-like friendships, Christ-like churches, Christ-like evangelism and a Christ-like world, then we need Christ-like understanding, not least on the subject of Hell.

Why are there so many Christian denominations?
Jesus often prayer that his followers would have such a radical unity that would be a testimony to the world. However, when we look at the Christian body today, it seems as though they divide up into hundreds of different groups, churches, and denominations. For those who are not Christians, it seems confusing. Why can’t they agree on anything? Why are there sometimes four different churches on the same street? Even for believers, the question often arises: Why are there so many Christian denominations?

Is it wrong for Christians to swear/cuss?
The topic of swearing/cussing is one that often elicits deep divide amongst Christians.
