God just wants us to be good people, right? And Christians are supposed to be nice people! Jesus said that, didn't He? The Church has an MTD infection...This week Don show us through scripture why this 'Moralistic Therapeutic Deism' is no gospel at all, and why the truth is so much better!

Did Jesus die so you could do whatever you want? Even if you don't believe this doctrinally, your life might tell a different story. This week Joel looks at why it's so important to not take grace for granted, what this looks like in practice, and why the truth is such great news!

The Gospel has many social implications; for how we treat the poor, how we advocate for those who can't advocate for themselves, for justice, in the political sphere, and many other areas of human flourishing. The Social Gospel says these things are the primary reason Jesus came - even that His death was politically motivated.. but is that what scripture tells us? This week, Don unpacks the social gospel, to see how it stands up to Biblical scrutiny, and why the truth leads to a greater freedom!
