Hello, dear ones! This has been a trying week, with multiple technological issues our two episodes for this week trickled out. On Tuesday, instead of Monday, part 2 of our interview with the FriendlyCalvinist finally dropped on podcasts platforms. It took 12 hours to figure out the issue on YouTube, but eventually, on Wednesday, the video was available. In the last portion of this interview we get more into how Christians should behave on Social Media, discussing why those in the Reformed community ought to avoid the ‘cage stage’. Today we’ve dropped our New Years Spectacular, in which we discuss our favorite things from 2019, and list what will be coming in the next couple months. Hopefully there will be no issue with the YouTube video this time.
You can find both of these episodes on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, iHeart Radio, Podbean, Stitcher, and Youtube. We’d love to hear what you’d like us to cover in this new year, friends. Also, if you’d like to have your blog on our podcast as a shoutout, let us know. We love to point our listeners to Biblically sound blogs! Below is an outline for both episodes, with timestamps for todays episode. As always, be good Bereans and study to show yourselves approved.

Are Friendly Calvinists an Endangered Species? Part 2
Questions from Instagram
Martin Lloyd Jones said, “the Christian Faith is ultimately not only a matter of doctrine or of understanding or of intellect, it is a condition of the heart.” I completely agree with this statement and it becoming clear since joining Instagram that many are cold hearted in the way they speak to unbelievers and believers alike. The love has grown cold . Being that we understand total depravity and that unbelievers are hostile towards God; do you think it’s important for Calvinists to be checking their heart more than they are? And their approach? I’m seeing too many “intellectual” conversations minus the Gospel.
How do you manage your devotional/studytime throughout the day? I mean there is so much to do and so many distractions, how do you manage to set aside time to sit and read God’s word, how do you get the most out of that?
What is Molinism, and what is its supposed advantage over Calvinism, and Arminism?
From which pedal of the TULIP is the friendliness derived from?
What is your favorite cookie?
1. What are you currently reading and studying?
2. What books, sermons/teachings, devotionals, movies, music would you recommend?
