I am Hal Hammons, a citizen of heaven. I broadcast regular reports of what it is for a child of God to live in Satan's world. My reports typically break down into four segments:"What I've been preaching" -- a point I have made in a recent sermon."What I've been reading" -- A brief breakdown of a book of the Bible or other reading material that has helped me in my understanding or application of the Bible."What I've been hearing" -- news from the internet or other sources about what is going ...

Welcome to another episode of Continuum where we'll be making space news relevant for the next generation! In this episode, we'll be covering the Pentagon's first public hearing in more than 50 years on UFOs, the new colorized image of the supermassive black hole at the center of our Milky Way galaxy, plants growing in lunar soil, the largest marsq…
 
We follow up on last week’s “Creation” episode by talking about the land we inhabit and the role God gives us while we do so. We will discuss the nature of our stewardship, and its implications for our own bodies; the folly of thinking we can every really know what we’re doing; what it means for the meek to “inherit the earth,” and how we can act r…
 
This month is all about God’s power over the physical world — starting with our Evidence talk with the Appian Media guys last week, and continuing this week with the world we inhabit and how it came to be. We will discuss making something from nothing, both in the world and in our own lives; the great lie our enemies are telling, and how we can def…
 
Welcome to another episode of Continuum where we'll be making space news relevant for the next generation! In this episode, we'll be covering the Uranus probe with special attention on its satellite Miranda, ESA's plan for a Moon Village, return of SpaceX's Crew 3 as well as all the top space headlines from around the globe. We'll also cover Rocket…
 
This is the rest of my conversation with Craig Dehut and Stuart Peck, the founders of Appian Media. Appian Media provides free resources of extraordinary quality to help flesh out and fortify the faith of Bible believers. Check them out at AppianMedia.org. In this part we discuss the testimony of the resurrection and how it paves the way for faith …
 
A few months ago I got to speak to Jeremy Dehut and Barry Britnell about some of the work being done by Appian Media. This week the founders of Appian Media are here, Craig Dehut and Stuart Peck. I got to pick their brains about the effective use of evidence from archaeology and history in efforts to build faith in ourselves and others. In the firs…
 
Ironic, isn’t it? The man who never gets sick catches COVID the week he plans an episode on luck. You can’t make this stuff up. Anyway, I’m likely not at my best vocally, so your patience is appreciated. This week we will discuss the myth of Karma; our tendency to see bad luck crossing our path more often than good luck; the odds of humans evolving…
 
Welcome to another episode of Continuum where we'll be making space news relevant for the next generation! In this episode, we'll be covering the international collaboration and competition happening behind the scenes of the Artemis program as well as all the top space headlines from around the globe. We'll also introduce you to SYSTEM Sounds, the …
 
We talked about standing up straight in the Posture episode last week. But stand where? For how long? Using our best judgment is critical; but sometimes what we call “best judgment” is simply what comes easiest. That may be simplistic and even counterproductive. This week we will discuss the dangers of thinking too much, the real difference (if any…
 
Take a stand for truth. Be a stand-up guy. Stand up and be counted. We instinctively connect good posture and good character. If you don’t buy into that, if you prefer to be a slouch, it’s probably going to affect your relationships — including your relationship with Jesus. This week we will discuss what our loins are and how we gird them up; what …
 
Welcome to our third episode of Continuum where we'll be making space news relevant for the next generation! In this episode, we'll be discussing an exoplanet discovery milestone and the detection methods used to get us there, as well as the breakdown of Russia and ESA's joint efforts on the Rosalind Franklin mission. And as always, we've got a run…
 
We pick up where we left off in my conversation about racism with Benjamin Lee and Saif Alsafeer. If you haven’t checked out part 1 yet, please do so. In this conversation we go back to Robinson Crusoe one last time to discuss how relevant the racism discussion is in today’s world and today’s church; and the hazards of stereotyping people based on …
 
We begin Season 4 of the podcast this week with a very special conversation with Benjamin Lee and Saif Alsafeer on a very sensitive topic. I very much appreciated the perspective of these two men, and I enjoyed how we were able to approach the topic as brethren. This is the first part of our discussion. We spend it emphasizing our commonality and o…
 
This is the second half of my conversation with Kenny Embry, Edwin Crozier and Jared Bollman, three of my favorite people in this space. We will discuss the blessings and hazards of social media, what draws us to this space, the price we pay to participate, and the upcoming Balancing the Christian Life Lectures. Hal Hammons is the preacher for the …
 
To cap the third season of Citizen of Heaven, I sat down over Zoom with three of my podcasting buddies to talk about the medium, how we are all using it, what potential pitfalls await us, and how we came to podcasting in the first place. I hope the conversation will be interesting and informative. Jared Bollman hosts the Man Up! podcast, as well as…
 
Welcome to our second episode of Continuum where we'll be making space news relevant for the next generation! In this episode, we'll be discussing some of the upcoming private space launches & celebrity selection as well as the issue of trash on the moon. There's 400,000 pounds of junk up there, and whose job is it to clean it up? For more space ne…
 
Words are the tools of my profession. Whether written or spoken, live or recorded, they are the weapons of my warfare, to borrow from 2 Corinthians 10:3. This week we will discuss a word used constantly by preachers like me — and if you ask me, we ought to use it more; the havoc that 300 years of usage can wreak on our vocabulary; the lie we tell o…
 
“Repentance” is a church word. We don’t hear it very often in our daily lives in the world. And maybe that’s the problem. We’re not doing it because no one is talking about it. This week we will discuss our utter unworthiness of the kingdom of God, our utter unwillingness to learn from our mistakes, our utter incompetence at simple apologies, and m…
 
Welcome to Continuum! The universe is expanding, and so is the space industry. With all the new developments, announcements, and launches - it can be a lot to keep up-to-date with! So we’re here to help. Continuum is a news show that’s making space relevant for the next generation and boldly challenging the status quo. Whether it’s new discoveries …
 
When I think of getting away from it all, I think of an island. Me here, problems way out there, it’s a comforting way of looking at the world. But island living is not as simple as that. This week we will discuss God’s plan to bridge the gap between the mainland and the islands; Robinson Crusoe conforming the island to meet his needs instead of th…

This is the second half of my conversation with BJ Sipe, the preacher at the church of Christ in Danville, Kentucky, and the host of the Set Your Mind Above podcast. Check out the first half if you have not already. True confession: the connection here to cannibalism is weak. But we have been personifying disease and death since long before Edgar A…
 
Do Christians actually eat other Christians? Yes they do, and my guest and I have the bite marks to prove it, as do countless other Christians. BJ Sipe, the preacher at the church of Christ in Danville, Kentucky, and the host of the Set Your Mind Above podcast, sat down with me to discuss the topic. This is the first half of our conversation. We di…
 
For all the kindergarten teachers out there who are annoyed with me already, stick with me; I will get to you in a minute. The fact is, stupidity exists. And it’s not tough to prove it. This week we will discuss the things the Bible calls stupid; the behavior that makes you stupid, at least in the eyes of one author; the confusion over what is and …
 
Anarchy is society without government. If you’re not a big fan of government, and I’m not, that can sound pretty good. And in a perfect world, it would be. But in case you didn’t know, this isn’t a perfect world. This week we will discuss what it means to be under law to Christ; how conspiracy theories feed into our worst tendencies; whether politi…
 
Fair warning: This week’s episode will sound more like a lesson for preachers than normal. But I’m confident that any child of God will find a way to adapt it for personal use. (See what I did there?) We will cover the difference between being adjustable and being spineless; the importance of good source material, for movie makers and for Christian…
 
This is the second half of my conversation with Kris Emerson and Steve Wolfgang. Kris Emerson is host of the Excel Still More podcast and preacher for the Lindale church of Christ. Steve Wolfgang is the evangelist for the Downer’s Grove church of Christ in suburban Chicago. In the final part of our conversation, we discuss Jesus’ ideas about brothe…
 
I have two guests with me to share their insights — and if they choose, their feelings as well. Kris Emerson is host of the Excel Still More podcast and preacher for the Lindale church of Christ. Steve Wolfgang is the evangelist for the Downer’s Grove church of Christ in suburban Chicago. This is the first two segments of our discussion; we discuss…
 
In some ways this week’s installment is a follow-up to last week’s. We discussed the concept of “Big” last week. And there’s nothing bigger than eternity. This week we will discuss the secret to life, according to the wisest man to ever live; how Native American philosophy, as narrated by James Michener, strangely mirrors the Bible; how you can be …
 
They say everything is bigger in Texas. The bluster, the egos, the steaks, the belt buckles. You name it, we can supersize it. But bigger comes with its problems — big commitments, big disappointments, big failures and big consequences among them. This week we will discuss big faith and why you should be trying to find it; big dreams that have alwa…
 
Whoever sheds man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed. God told Noah that thousands of years ago. And the value of human life has not diminished since then. Unfortunately our valuation of it has in many cases. This week we will discuss whether Christians actually murder other Christians, and if so, how; the secrets to staying out of a sex-drug-…
 
This is the second part of my discussion with Jeremy Dehut and Barry Britnell. Check out www.appianmedia.com for the great work Jeremy, Barry and the rest of the crew put together. I absolutely loved Bruce Feiler’s book, American Prophet, which detailed the importance of the Moses story in American life. So when I heard he had written a book about …
 
This week I have the privilege of sharing my discussion with Jeremy Dehut and Barry Britnell of Appian Media, a wonderful resource for professional and Biblical material. Check them out at www.appianmedia.org. This is the first half of our discussion. We will discuss the insights the crew found into the book of Revelation while filming their most r…
 
Maybe it’s the holidays, Maybe it’s my new son-in-law. In any case, I’ve been spending a lot of time recently thinking about taking people on the outside and bringing them inside, creating blessings for host and visitor alike. This week we will discuss Biblical hospitality and Abraham’s example; barriers we may be erecting to keep brethren at a dis…
 
Looking at things from different perspectives is the fair way to approach a situation. But it’s more than that. It’s about compiling all the relevant information, including information that challenges our way of seeing the world. This week we discuss circumspection — the skill of viewing things from other points of view. And then we practice it on …
 
Bullies are people who take what they want at the expense of the weak. From the short kid on the playground to the minimum-wage worker to the next nation in the path of a warmonger, most of us have suffered bullying. And many of us have inflicted it. This week we discuss David’s failed and selfish leadership; the pros and cons of public whippings; …
 
In the western corner, representing the Oregon Ducks, we have BJ Sipe, host of the Set Your Mind Above Podcast and evangelist with the church of Christ in Danville, KY. In the eastern corner, representing the Tennessee Volunteers, we have Terry Francis, preacher for the church of Christ in Chelsea, Alabama, and his son Peyton. In the second half of…
 
Last month we discussed Nerds; this week we flip the coin over. Sitting in with me are the biggest sports fans and occasional participants I could find. BJ Sipe preaches for the church of Christ in Danville, KY. He also hosts the Set Your Mind Above podcast. Terry and Peyton Francis co-host the Pork and Son podcast, focusing on sports in general, T…
 
Ephesians 4:26 reads, “Be angry, and yet do not sin.” I fear sometimes we effectively leave off the second half of that sentence. The fact is, giving in to anger is just as bad as giving in to lust or envy. God’s words to Cain ring true for us: “You must master it.” This week we will discuss choosing brotherly love over angry words; a single outbur…
 
I don’t know how it is in your house, but I’m seeing pumpkins everywhere these days. From the coffee shop to the craft store to my front porch, it’s all pumpkin all the time. And for me, that’s a good thing. This week we discuss extreme reactions to extreme hunger; the lie you have been told your entire life about pumpkin pie; the weirdest meat in …
 
Lions run wild in the Bible, pardon the expression. Everyone knew about them. Everyone respected and feared them. That’s why they make such a great metaphor — make that a series of metaphors. This week we will discuss why the sluggard stays in bed, why our original state of freedom is preferable to luxury in captivity, a personal flashback to a day…
 
More than a year ago, when I posted the Beauty episode, I said an episode on Art was on the way. Like I tell my wife, I always follow through with my promises; I don’t have to be reminded every six months. Today we discuss whether Renaissance artists actually accomplished anything for Jesus; whether Picasso was a brilliant master or a self-involved…
 
I hope no one considers “nerd” to be a pejorative term; my guests this week certainly do not. Jared Bollman is the preacher for the Fifth Street church of Christ in Beaverton, Oregon; The action figures in his office speak volumes. Jared also hosts the Biblically Speaking podcast on Facebook. Jared Saltz is a professor at Florida College and preach…
 
Loyalty to an underachieving sports team can be noble. Loyalty to an abusive relationship can be destructive. It’s all about finding a worthy cause, group or individual. This week we will discuss whether you can be both a Jew and a Christian, and why you and I should care; the choice between patriotism and pragmatism in 17th Century Jamaica; whethe…
 
At some level we all want to be the lone wolf, to prove ourselves as individuals. That’s not all bad. But it’s not all good either. This week we will discuss the relationship between musical groups and their members who go solo, and what that has to do with the church; the ethos of Jack Reacher (who does not resemble Tom Cruise in the slightest); h…
 
From T-Rexes to pterodactyls to triceratops, dinosaurs have fascinated humans since the early 1800s. When did they live? Where did they all go? And for Christians, how do they impact our faith? This week we will discuss dinosaurs in the Bible (I would argue there are at least three); Michael Crichton’s commentary on the hubris of humankind; our per…
 
This is the second part of my conversation with Matt and Jenn Schmidt, the co-hosts of the Intimate Covenant podcast. Find out more about their work at intimatecovenant.com. Check out the first segment if you have not done so already. Here we will discuss lessons in marriage preparation from the Shulammite, and what might be gained from teaching so…
 
This is part 1 of my conversation with Matt and Jenn Schmidt. My guests this month are Matt and Jenn Schmidt, the cohosts of the Intimate Covenant podcast. Matt and Jenn are all about having more and better sex in a covenant relationship between one man and one woman, joined by God, defined by the Bible. Find out more at intimatecovenant.com In the…
 
A legacy of children. A legacy of debt. A legacy of work. For good or ill, we all leave something behind. Christians inherit the legacy of brethren, and ultimately of Jesus Himself. May God help us be worthy of them. This week we will discuss Elijah’s mantle and what it meant for Elisha; the worst vice president ever, and how he paid the price for …
 
I love me a good tool. Tools give us the ability to alter the world around us. But we need to actually use them. Better yet, we need to use them well, and for the right purpose. Otherwise we just make a mess out of our garage and our life. Men love tools. We admire them. We collect them. We want to have the right tool for the job. But if are not we…
