Over the last decade the church has stressed finding your identity in Christ but it has not always clearly defined what is meant by the phrase. Appealing to their shared spritual formation backgrounds, Mark and Richard look to define what it is and what it isn’t.

Monotheism in Ancient Hebrew Culture http://jessup.edu/podcast/monotheism-in-ancient-hebrew-culture/ Tue, 12 Mar 2019 17:17:44 +0000 Jessup http://jessup.edu/?post_type=podcast&p=7831 full 7 1 Cynthia Schaefer Elliot, Professor of Hebrew Scriptures & Archaeology, joins Mark and Professor Libby Backfish to discuss how monotheism was understood in ancient Hebrew culture. Within the discussion it becomes apparent that our current English definition of monotheism misrepresents its usage in ancient Hebrew culture. Instead of stressing the exitstence of one God, ancient Hebrews were called to the worship of one God, a practice they greatly struggled with.

In North America, Protestants can be broken down into two major groups: Mainline and Evangelical. Mark and Rex discover that this division does not always follow strict denominational lines. Tracing the history of this division provides fascinating insight into today’s religious landscape.

Forced Church http://jessup.edu/podcast/forced-church/ Tue, 15 Jan 2019 17:31:34 +0000 Jessup http://jessup.edu/?post_type=podcast&p=7127 full 2 1 In this episode Mark is joined by Associate Professor of Christian Leadership Daniel Gluck & Associate Professor of Youth Ministry Fritz Moga. Together they explore the difficult topic of whether Christian parents should force their children to go to church. Many children associate church with boredom, uncomfortable clothes, and weird smells. When they begin to voice a desire to not go, how should Christian parents respond? Could forcing church on them only cause them to run the other direction when they are older? Could not stressing it diminish the important role the church plays in the spiritual life?

They explore the question, are cultural artifacts (i.e. films, television shows, books, etc.) that mention God in a bad or even sacrilegious way less dangerous than artifacts that do not mention God at all? Some “family-friendly” artifacts may actually cause more harm than good by excluding God all together.
