She Finds Truth is a podcast about reality, Jesus, and everyday life. It's about discovering God is using us right where we are - in the midst of our craziness! - to glorify Him and sanctify us. Bottom line, it's the podcast for believers about how our faithful God is working in the chaos of our daily lives.

I saw a very nice happy meme that said YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH and was supposed to make me feel better and encourage me after I had a rough time with something. 

But it just makes me feel squirmy. 

Because I know I'm NOT good enough. 

In this episode I explore this question of being good enough and of course that leads us to dip into the 2 kinds of righteousness and also I go on a rant about how women's Bible studies should not be created in a hole but should have some church oversight. (I know you would have thought after last week I'd be done talking about this, but it's like the flood gates were opened...) But mostly I explore the concept of "good enough" and what it means and we have a good enough time doing it. (I'm sorry I'm such a nerd I can't help it!)

Scripture references:

Mark 10:18

Matthew 25:34-40

Ephesians 2:10

2 Corinthians 5:21

You should definitely listen to last week's podcast on women's Bible studies in case you missed what all the fuss was about

Also, if you don't know what I mean by "decision theology," you should look into that and find out where you land on it. Read this great piece by Brian Wolfmueller and find out why Lutheran's aren't big fans. So much Scripture. I love it!

 

Thanks for listening!!

Women's Bible studies are a surprisingly controversial topic in Christian conversations. You'd think they would be a no-brainer, but instead it can be divisive and complicated. 

In today's episode I address the elephant in the room when it comes to popular authors like Beth Moore and Sara Young and what place they should and shouldn't have in Bible based churches. I explain the problematic theology that pops up in women's groups around the country and also why it IS so attractive. We look at a list of suggested criteria for vetting a Bible study you might use and I have some tips for leaders too. 

Suggested guidelines:

  1. Ask your pastor for suggestions and/or to vet the resource you are considering.
  2. Does the material frame the conversation around a theology of the cross? Or a theology of glory?
  3. What role does Scripture play? Is the Bible a book of rules or the story of our rescue?
  4. There should be law AND Gospel both. So something about sin and also something about Jesus saving us from that sin. What is the suggested answer to the sin problem? [red flags]
  5. Does author distinguish between passive righteousness and active righteousness?
  6. Does the study see Jesus as a coach? A magic helper? Or a Savior?
  7. What is the author’s view of the Means of Grace? Is the author anti-sacramental?

Oh I forgot to mention on the show that the CPH LifeLight studies are a good solid study of Scripture. Not gender-specific, just for all believers!

How is God WITH me? Recently when I was trying to clarify what my podcast and blog are all about, I ended up with a chart. 

It's been pretty helpful in reminding me of all that God offers me and how I have access to those things in the incredible physical world he has created. 

This episode focuses in on those 5 means of grace in the middle. Listen to the show and decide whether I'm a heretic or not. Also, I go on a rant about all the crazy things people are saying on the internet that we kindof like the sound of - "claiming my marriage for God!" but that don't really make that much sense and can lead us down a dangerous path of looking inward instead of to God. I agree being conscious of our sins and issues is helpful, but just because I write it down on a notecard doesn't mean God is going to "fix" it the way I want Him to. Just sayin. 

During the show I said I'd have more links in the show notes to other shows/blogposts about these topics. Here they are:

I'm back from holidaytime and I'm so glad to get things going for 2017! Today's show is me checking in and talking us through some things about reflecting on 2016 - in good ways - and looking ahead at the coming year. I share some of my resolutions and how I'm afraid of failure. At the end I throw in a bit about sanctification. It's great! Check it out. 

Oh and here's the book I mention - it's great too!

Galatians: Selections from Martin Luther
