TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS EPISODE

Is truth what we feel to be true? What do you do when what you know to be true clashes with what you are feeling is true?
Pastor and researcher Jon Benzinger is our guest again for a fast-paced, fact-filled discussion on the top 5 reasons we can trust the Bible to be our reliable guide for life and relationship with God and others. We also talk about the importance of feelings and we explore how performance-based religion often gets it wrong when it comes to our feelings and how we know truth.  Lynn and Jon also talk candidly about how God used the Bible to personally change their lives and the hope and healing that is there for anyone who is seeking transformation.
Note: This podcast originally aired as Episode #070.

QUOTES FROM THIS EPISODE

The Bible is the sword of the Spirit. Trust what the Word says rather than what my feelings say.

A changed life becomes a result of a trustworthy Bible. Our world gets better when the Bible seeps into its culture.

Put the Bible to the test!
