Episode 015: The Celebrity Pastor Phenomenon w/ Special Guest Barnabas Piper

Description:In this episode, we talk about the “celebrity pastor” phenomenon. The idea of “celebrity pastors” has always existed, even as you think about the fame of people in Bible times, but with the world of social media and “platform” that surrounds us today, it seems as prominent ever. For this discussion, we invited Barnabas Piper to join us. Barnabas has a unique perspective because his dad is John Piper, one of the most famous pastors of the last 20 years.

Episode 014: Chris and David Don’t Get Left Behind

Description: In this episode, we discuss the end times and how our view of them changes how we live. A lot of the discussion centers around David’s post on the Great Commission, as well as several Scripture passages. The following links and passages may be helpful: The Great Commission: Mission and Promise (article by David) Matthew 28:18–20 Romans 11:25–26 Matthew 13 (several passages in this chapter) 1 Corinthians 15 Heaven Misplaced by Doug Wilson, which David mentioned articulates his view better than he does. Grudem’s Systematic Theology and the ESV Study Bible explain basic views on the end times pretty well. Last, here’s a video of John Piper discussing the end times with some people who represent various views on eschatology.
