Mission Central Podcast – But God…

Thoroughly depressed, it’s time to make a turnaround. Paul puts together the greatest 2 word phrase in the Bible when he begins verse 4 of chapter 2 with that wonderful phrase, “but God.” Because of His great love and unending mercy He has rescued us. His reckless love comes after us to save us.

Mission Central Podcast – Spiritual Death is Universal

Yes, spiritual death is real and it is overwhelming. The bad news from Ephesians 2 continues. Without Christ we are dominated by Satan and on our own we run toward sin. Spiritual death is universal and we are doomed. Depressed yet? Just wait. It’s going to get worse before it gets better.

Mission Central Podcast #024

Here are the key points from this episode:

  • Satan dominates the spiritually dead.
  • Our own sinful nature is a result of the Fall and is our attempt to bypass God. We can’t blame everything on the devil.
  • Spiritual death is universal.
  • As an unredeemed sinner you do as you please. No one is dragged kicking and screaming into sin. These are your inclinations.
