Episode 88: They Had Been With Jesus

In Acts 4:13, we are told of Peter and John that it was clear “they had been with Jesus.” Is this true of us? Is this true of those from whom we are learning? What did Jesus look like, and what implications does this have on our lives?

Episode 71: God Never Promised Us a Rose Garden

Contrary to what the Word of Faith preachers would have us believe, we are not promised lives of luxury as Christians. In fact, Scripture promises us quite the opposite. Scripture also promises us that God will strengthen us in our trials, sustain us in times of persecution, and grant us joy in all circumstances. God never promised us a rose garden, but we can still enjoy the fragrance of His grace and blessing in all things.

Episode 62: Bell's Broken Bible

The Bible is God’s Word, and when we don’t treat it as such, we naturally end up with a low, skewed view of God and Christ. In this episode, we’ll discuss the latest from author and teacher Rob Bell, a prominent “Scripture twister,” and see how his views of God’s Word align with the views of its Author.

Episode 30: Simeon's Psalm

Mary and Joseph. The angels. The shepherds. The wise men. The innkeeper. And of course, the baby Jesus. These are the people we think of when we remember the Christmas story as told in the gospels. But there is another important character introduced in the early days of the life of Christ who often seems forgotten. Open your Bibles to Luke 2 and join Erin in a study of Simeon's psalm.

Episode 26: Perfect Perspicuity

The word of the day is "perspicuity." There are those in the professing church who would say that true humility admits that we cannot know what the Bible really means. Such a vague view of Scripture has not been the historic position of the Church through the ages, however. Why? Because God's Word is clear about its clarity; it is perfect in its perspicuity.

Episode 23: Counted Worthy to Suffer

These days, we hear many Christian leaders talking about the very real possibility of a rise in the persecution of Christians. What should be our reaction to this? Do we cower? Join the latest political rally? Form a picket line? What about rejoicing? What about thanking the Lord? In this episode of Equipping Eve, Erin turns to the book of Acts to observe how the earliest Christians reacted to persecution in their time.

Episode 21: God's Final Word

In these last days, God has spoken to us in His Son. Hebrews 1tells us this clearly, but the early verses of this epistle also reveal seven excellencies of Christ that demonstrate why it is that this Son possesses the authority to be that final, all-sufficient Word.

Episode 17: The Submissive Wife (Part 2)

In this episode of Equipping Eve, Erin continues her discussion of biblical submission and of the recently-aired reality show, Submissive Wives. Is being a submissive wife all about checking off the right boxes? Is it all 5-course meals and blind catering to every whim? Or is there more to God's design for marriage?

Episode 16: The Submissive Wife (Part 1)

"Wives, be subject to your own husbands..." Sometimes Ephesians 5:22 can be a loaded verse, especially in the eyes of the world. A reality show called Submissive Wives recently aired and was touted as offering a depiction of what a biblically submissive marriage looks like. What is biblical submission, and did the women in this show accurately reflect it?
