Can Christians be funny? SHOULD they be funny? Can Christians have a God honoring sense of humor?!?
Despite popular belief, Christians don’t have to abandon humor in order to pursue Christian virtue. On the contrary, Christians should be the most joy-filled, grateful, and fun-loving people. Betsy and Michelle discuss how we should employ the gift of laughter, humor, and joking. Are there humorous instances in scripture? Can we properly understand the seriousness of sin and still laugh at a good joke? Or…make a good joke?!
Why should Christians think about technology? Technology offers insight into what problems human’s seek to solve, and how (rightly and wrongly) to solve them, reveal our worldview, and change the way we operate on a daily basis.
In this episode, Michelle and Betsy are reunited after months of quarantine, and discuss a new TV show that involves uploading consciousness, Amish decision making, and cutting off limbs.
It’s a fun one! We laughed and we cried, quite literally.
Let us know your thoughts on technology! How do you determine what tech to use and what to reject? Do you think we will use and develop technology in Heaven? And the ultimate question of: if we can, should we?

Chances are, you or someone you know, has experienced a form of mental turmoil or has been diagnosed with a mental illness. So, some questions must be asked: how, as Christians, should we view psychology and Christianity? What worldviews are at play and what are their implications? What are the dangers of taking a biblicist or solely scientific approach? If you are in Christ, what is God’s purpose in this manner of suffering?

Fear of God destroys fear of all else.
