Welcome to The Conquering Truth, a weekly podcast for Christians, seeking to discern how to live in today’s world, in alignment with God’s word. We’ll have discussions of how the gospel and the word of God ought to be applied to current events, the problems facing our society, the history of what God has done in the world, trends in the church and many other topics. The scriptures have a lot to say about those issues, and we see a lack of Biblical thinking and application to culture in many professing Christian circles today. We want to do our part to reverse that trend.
We’ll address current and controversial issues to show how God’s truth prevails over the lies that fill the world. How the scriptures have the answers even if the world hates it. We want to boldly address topics that are countercultural. Not just to the national culture at large, but to conservative culture, church culture, and even to reformed church culture.
Why The Conquering Truth?
As followers of Christ, we can approach life confident in His victory over all things – including death. Jesus did not call for a retreating or even defending Church, but His bride is called to be conquering darkness with light. Our approach is rooted in the view of a victorious gospel derived from verses like these:
And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.Matthew 16:18
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,2 Corinthians 10:3-5
