The Good, the Bad, and the Almighty [Podcast]

2 Peter 2:1-10

It’s a question we have to consider. What are we going to do with our sin? We all have it—and all the good deeds in the world can’t erase the fact that we’ve done bad.

In this episode of Live the Bible, we look at our culture (and ourselves) right in the face—as we see what the Bible has to say about 3 people: the good, the bad, and the Almighty.

But the bad news is only the first step to the good news. And it’s really good!

How to Stand Strong against a Roaring Lion [Podcast]

1 Peter 5:8-14

There’s a lion out to get you. No, not a large feline. I’m talking about your greatest enemy—a spiritual foe whom the Apostle Peter likes to a ferocious beast who lurks and looks for a chance to lunge.
