For Real Life
Summary: For real life, answers tough questions in a quick bite that you can share with your friends.
What helps us be a part of a community? Sometimes our circles and our circumstances do not overlap and we can feel disconnected. But there are many ways to look after everyone in our community and show God’s love in the way we connect.
We can often question God. And the question that I wonder is why did God who created us, made us so that we would feel such emotional pain? He made us with the ability to love and to love deeply, but at the same time to feel such pain when we lose someone.
Prophecy is the part of God's Word that indicates things that are about to happen, essentially the sequence of events that lend credence or evidence that God is in control, that God has a plan and purpose and that events will unfold as He intends them to. Jochem and Kevin take a glimpse at prophecy throughout scripture and how it shows God’s plan for his people.
Jochem continues his series on the proof of God’s existence, and in this episode looks at the perspective of archaeology in discussion with Caleb Lawrence. They discuss the significance of Hezekiah’s tunnel in Jerusalem and how it corresponds to the "water works" mentioned in 2 Kings 20.
Jochem continues his series on the proof of God’s existence, and in this episode looks at the perspective of science in discussion with Caleb Lawrence. They explore physical constants that determine the actual physical makeup of the matter of the planet and of the universe, and one of them is water.
In this episode, we talk about doubt. We doubt many things in life. Sometimes that's good, sometimes it's not. God's existence is something that is often doubted as well. To help us with our own doubt, or to enable us to talk to other people who may doubt God, we look into proof that God does in fact exist.
In the Bible, we read about idols. It's mentioned all throughout the Bible. Clearly, it's a big deal to God. But why is that? What is the problem with idols? And particularly at a time wherein many countries we don't really have idols like they did in the past, why is this something you and I need to know about?
When we covet things and can’t learn to be content, we start to do things to get what we want. There are things that may not seem harmful to begin with, but eventually can lead to sacrificing all sorts of values we once thought were important.
So whether you’re doing well, or perhaps you’re going through some trying times; whatever it is, remember God put you there because he loves you.
There are a lot of things to be anxious about right now. But how you will let it affect you mentally, and emotionally is your choice.
Why do we suffer? It’s a logical question to ask at any point when we see or experience suffering. In the future is a world where there will be no suffering.
In this episode, Jochem talks about why he is not worried about the Corona virus, financial meltdowns, or anything.
