Does Christ's death mean all our sins can be forgiven?

Question 25 of The Big 52, a series on "big" questions of Christianity • May 3, 2021 • Grant Vander Hoek, Mike Moffitt

Grant Vander Hoek joins us this week from beyond the northern iron Covid curtain to talk about some perks of online church, sin grenades, molecules of wrath, believing in more than coloring books, and of course the miracle that despite being populated by a bunch of sinners, the Church is still around...and has an essential role to play in the world.

What sort of person should the Redeemer be?

Question 21 • March 1, 2021 • Jill McMullen, Randi Downs, Mike Moffitt

Jill, Randi, and Mike wonder if heaven is like a night club called "The Pearly Gates." Hopefully not.

If there is a Redeemer to bring us back to God, what should that Redeemer be like?
