In this episode, we dive into some dangerous territory: questions about God's sovereignty. The sovereignty of God can be an extremely challenging topic for Christians. A lot of the debate centers on the phrase "God is in control." What do we mean when we say God is in control? For many, this question leads to an even bigger one: if God is in contro…

No one wants to admit they are weak. Our culture puts a high value on strength. But even the strongest among us have weaknesses. Everyone does, even though we all try to mask it.

The way to win is not through violence, revolution, or political power. The way to win is through the person of Jesus, and for Christ followers our strategy is laid out all throughout scripture. This is how you win: Remember that our leader Jesus has overcome the world, the battle is already won. (John 16:33) Do not use violence as a method of brin…

Aaron and Brian have a holiday hangout and discuss a topic that they know nothing about: Advent! Is it essential to the faith? Is It just "Hipster Christmas?" Or is it something more?

On this week's episode, Aaron sits down with Pastor Benjamin Morrison to discuss two articles he wrote for CalvaryChapel.com about the issue of systemic racism.

Aaron & Brian are back together to talk about 5 practical ways to Re-Center ourselves on Jesus (when the world seems crazy.)

People generally want to feel in control. We work, think, and plan to map out where our lives are going. But sometimes, it feels like God comes along and totally changes the plan. This can leave us confused, wondering how our lives got turned upside down, and worst of all, wondering if we ever really heard God in the first place. In this episode, A…
 
Aaron & Brian are back with Season 4 of the GoodLion Podcast! Is social media a distraction to Christians, or does it actually present one of the greatest Gospel/Evangelism mission fields of our time? What happens when we stop viewing social media as negative, or allowing it to influence us negatively, and instead focus on how we can use it to shar…
 
From Aaron: Some words on something I think is very important: peacemaking in the age of online discussions. We NEED to be talking about how to navigate this. It's SO easy for us to fly into self righteous rage in comment sections. But it's not the way of the peacemaker. Jesus calls us to navigate these difficult waters. In this podcast is some rea…
 
In this episode, Brian and Aaron discuss the reality of "Cultural Pharisees". At one time, Conservative Christians were seen as the strict moralists of the day, but currently, we see some of the same legalism on the left (a concept we shamelessly stole from Mark Sayers). We discuss the need for Christians to be people of peace in the midst of rapid…

Does the Christian have to worry about wrath? And what's the deal with Final Judgement? Aaron and Brian wrestle through these tough theological topics on today's episode of the Good…
 
2020 has been a politically charged year. Between Covid 19, the upcoming election, debates about health and safety vs rights and religious freedom, and now the recent murder of George Floyd and the following Black Lives Matter protests, one thing has become clear: our nation is divided. America is caught in a never-ending culture war between left a…
 
In light of the current unrest, division, and racial tensions in our world, Aaron shares a timely message from the book of Micah about injustice and God's idea of divine justice. This message is from 2016, but we believe it's extremely relative to what is going on today with the black community and the church's response. Micah 6:8 gives us powerful…
 
As we wrestle through the tough questions raised by Covid-19, we begin to look at the topic of God's wrath. Could God be the one behind this pandemic? Is it a sign of His wrath? What even IS wrath? We see clear examples of God judging people harshly all throughout scripture, especially in the Old Testament. What is the purpose of wrath? Mere crime …
 
Aaron sits down with Mike Neglia (Calvary Cork, Expositors Collective) to discuss the struggle of "Imposter Syndrome", a psychological pattern in which one doubts one's accomplishments and has a persistent internalized fear of being exposed as a "fraud".

When we face a some sort of big global crisis, many make statements about how this is certainly proof of God's wrath and judgement against the world.

As usual, the…

Should we read the Bible as a devotional, or should we read the Bible and pray in order to grow more devoted to Jesus and His Kingdom?

Last week we looked at the trend of men blaming objectification on the women who are victims. This week we are going to examine the other side of the coin, women blaming the problem completely on men, and trying to fix the problem through a new wave of feminism that teaches women that the only way to stop yourself from being objectified... is to ob…
