  • #180 - He Gets Us

    If you watched the SuperBowl this weekend you probably saw the commercial "He Gets Us". The ad sparked a ton of controversy. Many Christians are opposed to the idea of presenting Jesus in the light of someone who "Gets everyone" and would go out of His way to wash the feet of sinners and broken people. In this episode we'll consider the different viewpoints and examine the heart behind the campaign from a biblical perspective.

  • #178 - Intrusive Thoughts

    Do you ever struggle with Intrusive thoughts? You know... those thoughts that seem to come from out of nowhere that you can't seem to get rid of? It happens to EVERYONE. The problem many people face is they don't recognize that just because those thoughts entered their mind does NOT mean those thoughts belong there! As a child of God, you have been given authority over every negative, Intrusive, destructive thought that comes into your mind. You don't have to put up with those Intrusive thoughts any longer!

    In this episode we are delving into some scripture passages that map out our authority as believers over our thought life. The most important conversation you'll have today is the one between your own ears, and in this episode I'm sharing Biblically how to engage in self-talk (meditation) that empowers and brings life.

  • #177 - Artificial Intelligence and the Church: Caleb Hyers

    Duke sits down with Caleb Hyers, Senior Leader of the Resting Place in Tampa, Florida, for a discussion about Artificial Intelligence and its implications and potential impact on our lives and faith communities.

    Is A.I. going to take all of our jobs? Or will it open up new opportunities?

    Is A.I. going to make us lazy? Or will it free us up to focus MORE on higher level tasks?

    In addition to the AI stuff, Duke and Caleb also go down some deep theological rabbit trails and consider some perplexing things like the rapture, the nephilim, the age of the earth, and more.

  • #171 - Extinctionist Ideology, A.I. and the Sanctity of Life

    Yesterday (October 31st) on The Joe Rogan Experience, Elon Musk discussed his concerns related to the developing snd programming of Artificial Intelligence networks by individuals who don't have a value for human life. It was an interesting discussion that got me thinking about the Sanctity of Life, why we're all here, our relationship with the planet, and what it means to be created in the image of God.

  • #170 - Israel at War and a Word from the Lord

    It's been a few weeks since I've been able to release an episode, so two things are happening:

    1. I wanted to share some thoughts on the war that broke out in Israel stemming from the terrorists attacks of October 7th and discuss why it is imperative that we pray for the nation of Israel.
    2. I am also going to share out of a personal encounter I had with the Lord recently. He spoke some things to me that helped me move into a greater level of freedom in my walk with Him. Maybe it will do the same for you.


    Thanks for listening!

  • #163 - A New Covenant Lens (Part Four)

    This week, we're continuing the discussion series on the New Covenant. My goal is to create dialogue and maybe clear up some confusion about what it really means to live under the New Covenant. The New Covenant is better than the Law, like at literally everything, and yet I find that many in the body of Christ are reluctant to let go of their Old Covenant paradigms for fear that the New Covenant is not strong enough to keep them from sinning. The New Covenant did what the Old never could... it defeated sin once and for all. Join me in this discussion as we unpack the better promises of the New Covenant and discover perhaps in a greater way how perfect and complete the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ really is.
