Episode 136: We Are Only Visiting This Planet

In this special episode of the P&I podcast, we play a message that David gave at Grace Church in Minneapolis, called “We Are Only Visiting This Planet”. David speaks on the importance of having an eternal perspective and how that should impact the way we live our lives. 

Thank you so much for all the support you’ve given us in 2018, we’re excited to be creating new content in 2019 and seeing where God leads us!

No Longer Music just finished their tour in Colombia, where they have seen people experiencing God’s power, being physically healed and receiving Jesus in their lives. Ben and David share some stories of all that God has been doing and look at the importance of healings, signs, wonders and miracles, when preaching the Gospel and leading people to Jesus.

David also shares of the interesting bond between a cat and a monkey in his Random Story.

While Chad and Luke are who knows where, Ben and David answer your questions!!

They look at apologetics in the context of evangelism, how picky we should be in our theology when working with different churches, if it's right to ignore the law or even culture for the sake of the Gospel and more!

David also tells yet another Random Story... this one continuing the trend of people being afraid of him for no apparent reason...

We had the privilege of speaking to brilliant author and apologist Nancy Pearcey about her book “Love Thy Body.” We discuss gender identity, the sexual brokenness of this generation, and the secular mindset that has led to it. 
She also shares her story, why she left Christianity and what led her back to Jesus

On this week’s episode, the guys respond to three compelling community questions. The topics include whether or not we should ditch the label “Christian”, God’s sovereignty and human choices and whether spiritual experiences are enough for sustaining a vibrant faith.

Greg Boyd comes on the podcast again to discuss some controversial topics of our culture today. He shares his views on violence in the Old Testament, homosexuality, whether Christians should be involved in politics or not and more!

If you’re worried that there is no David’s Random Story, however, fear not, for David tells of what happened when he tried to be nice to some kids at a supermarket… let’s just say it didn’t go as expected…

In this episode of the P&I podcast, the regulars look at video games and whether or not followers of Jesus should have any involvement in them. They discuss if there are any major negative or positive sides to gaming and what those might be.

Chad also gets his own segment in the podcast and David shares about the time he hitchhiked from California to Minneapolis in David’s Random Story.

While Luke is apparently waiting for someone to return his tiny suit, Ben, Chad and David discuss the spiritual reality of our world, why it seems so many people are unaware of it, and if there is such a thing as being overly spiritual. 

They also look at whether or not there is something uniquely spiritual about music, and reminisce about the time David hid inside a crypt in an Egyptian Pyramid.

Come&Live artist Philip Shorey (Suitcase Sideshow) joins Ben on the podcast to talk about a music score he wrote to the silent horror film Nosferatu. He shares how he used the movie along with an orchestra to present the gospel to thousands of people at an art festival in Poland and then at a theater in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

They also discuss the power of Art and how every artist has a message, whether they know it or not.

How should Christians respond to Halloween? Is it just harmless fun? Or is there something truly evil about it? 

The guys get into a rowdy debate over how far is too far when it comes to fantasy and ‘horror themes’ in entertainment. They also discuss whether Halloween can be used as a unique opportunity to reach people for Jesus. 

Oh! AND a regular contributor to the podcast makes an in-person appearance!!! Let’s just say he dresses like a clown and doesn’t really talk much…
