Philippians 4:13 says, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." It's a great verse that has a lot to teach us - but it's also a verse that is often misunderstood. Is Philippians 4:13 evidence that we do anything as long as we follow God? Or is Paul saying something else here? In this episode, we discuss what this verse actually means and why it is such a great passage for us to know.

For the first time in the United States, cremations have exceeded traditional burials. As families grieve the loss of a loved one and consider how to proceed, a cremation is often a cheaper and easier option. For Christians, however, we wanted to consider what the Bible has to say about cremation. Does it matter? Is cremation a better or worse option for Christians?

If you've been around church for very long, you may have heard a worship leader say, "If we don't worship God, then the rocks will cry out." It's a common sentiment taken from Luke 19:40 and in church culture, it's a verse that is quoted often. So what does it mean? Is that true- if we don't worship, will creation worship instead, perhaps even in literal avalanches? That's what our topic is today on the 10 Minute Think Thru.

This week on the 10-Minute Think Thru, we talk about whether or not we will recognize each other as the person we knew while on earth. As humans, we create and invest in relationships in this life on earth. Naturally, we want those relationships to carry-over into our glorified state in heaven. But will they? Find out what we believe about relationships in heaven on this episode of the podcast.

It's a phrase you have probably heard and maybe even used, "God won't give you more than you can handle," but is this idea Biblical? The idea certainly has origins in Scripture, most notably in 1 Corinthians 10:13, but is it true? In this episode, we consider the validity of this phrase and consider what it means to offer comfort to those who are suffering.

You have probably heard of seminary and of ordination - but you might feel a bit confused about what these words actually mean. Who is seminary for and why would someone go? Do non-pastors go to seminary? And then there is the term "ordination" that gets used in the church. What does it mean to be ordained and do you need a seminary degree to be a pastor? These are the kinds of practical church questions we're going to be answering today on the 10 Minute Think Thru.

You've told them about Jesus, they have heard the gospel- but they still don't believe it. This can be a really tough situation, especially when they're a family member or close friend.

If you've ever read Matthew chapter 12, you may have some concerns when Jesus talks about a sin that will not be forgiven. What is the unforgivable sin? Is it something you do or something you say? These questions actually come from a deeper question for the Christian- is it possible for us to disqualify ourselves from salvation? In this episode, we explain this passage of scripture and offer some encouragement to fellow believers.

It's a situation we've all experienced: a friend is engaging in sin and we know it, but we don't know how to respond. You want the friendship to continue, but how you address it can be tricky. We're all sinners and prone to follow our sinful impulses, so how do we respond in a way that is helpful for us and for our friends? In this episode, we address a listener-summited question that we all can relate to.

Even in the church, it is common to hear phrases that some consider to be irreverent.

Celebrating halloween has long been a controversial topic among Christians - a prime example of "culture wars." Some believe it's harmless for kids to dress up and to trick or treat, as long as the parents disassociate it with its history. Others believe it's sinful to participate in any halloween activity.

The worship song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury has been very popular in Christian culture, including at our own church. Some have asked, however, is God's love "reckless," as the song's chorus describes? If not, should we be singing this song in church? It's a great question since we always want the theology we sing in worship to align with Scripture. In this episode, we discuss whether God's love is reckless and whether we should sing "Reckless Love" in church.

Over the years, Evangelical Christians have participated in many boycotts- such as with Target, Starbucks, and Beauty & the Beast - while many on the political left have done the same - Hobby Lobby, Chick-fil-A, and Ivanka Trump’s clothing line. As the controversy over the NFL continues, we answer a question sent in by a lister- Does it help for Christians to participate in boycotts? Do boycotts actually advance their cause?

When the highest value in culture is sexual liberty, everything else loses priority, including mercy ministries and care for those in need. Culture is more divided than ever, and yet the progressive path forward is one of harsher divides against people who are not "tolerant." Is the "new tolerance" in America doing more harm than good?

Rob Smith at Desiring God brought up a good point - in this age, we are often asking “Can we do this?” Before we ask “Should we do this?” In the Netflix show, "Black Mirror," different visions of the future are presented to show how the way we use technology today could lead to some very dark places.

Netflix's original show, 13 Reasons Why, has become wildly popular, especially among teenagers. The show is about a teenage girl’s audio recording, left behind after her suicide, which explains the reasons why she killed herself.

Cohabitation has increased by nearly 900 percent over the last 50 years. In fact, two-thirds of couples married in 2012 shared a home together for more than two years before they said "I Do."

In the United States, there is a lot of discussion surrounding the use or marijuana. Some consider marijuana to be useful, some advocate for its recreational use, and others consider it a danger to society. Among this heated debate, it is often difficult to have a conversation about this controversial topic. This week, our pastors discuss the issues surrounding marijuana: should it be used medicinally, recreationally, or not at all?
