DAY Ministry shares with the world the fruit of work by Rev. Dr. D. A. Yuan. He is an American pastor, author and conference speaker who was raised up in China and trained as a physicist before his conversion to evangelical Christianity. Once knowing Christ, he became fascinated by the Bible and everything it relates to. He sought for biblical truth as the revelation from God, which should and can be harmonized to the truths in other branches of knowledge, such as philosophy, science, and hi ...

Do not take the name of the Lord your God in vain. And don't use other cuss words while you're at it. At least that's how some of us were raised. But we're wondering what we were so afraid of?

Is it possible to be *too* optimistic? That's what Stephen's wondering today as he grapples with the possible links between his sense of optimism and hope for the world and his experience of privilege.

Josh, once again, had too many topics on his mind. But instead of rolling a dice, we let the Patreon community decide, so we're talking about pushy Christians!

Is there anything more meta than a faith podcast talking about faith directly? What do we mean exactly when we talk about faith and how does it differ from beliefs or trust? What does it mean to leave "the faith"? Can you ever lose faith or do you just place your faith in something else? What does it mean for God to have faith in us? Mentioned in t…

Join our community at patreon…
 
Inspired in part by a thought he had while watching a documentary about snake handling, Josh has questions about the way different denominations are able to appeal to certain demographics and people of varying economic classes.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! The time of the year where every podcast should address the holidays in some way, so we discuss our favorite (and overrated) Christmas movies, the traditions we've held onto around the season, and what it looks like to leave traditions behind.
