#11 Fred & Casey with The Fix Ministry

#11 Fred & Casey with The Fix Ministry

September 14, 2020

Fred & Casey with The Fix Ministry join me. In this episode, we will discuss how God saved them from drug and alcohol addictions to now be the co-founders of multiple ministries. They started downtown Richmond, VA preaching to homeless people in a parking lot. Next, they started The Fix Ministry, which is a faith-based organization that disciples men out of substance abuse and teaches them about Jesus Christ. 

In today's world, almost everyone knows someone who has been affected by substance abuse. These are two amazing people and you have to hear what God is doing through them. Everyone talks about making a difference, but these two are in the trenches doing the real work!

Politics and Social Media; How Christians are making things worse!

Politics and Social Media; How Christians are making things worse!

September 5, 2020

2020 has been a year of controversy. We have seen multiple police involved incidents where people have died. There are protests across the nation for Black Lives Matter. Antifa is rioting and destroying multiple cities. Some are calling for the police to be defunded. A group in Seattle made a sovereign nation called CHAZ. And this doesn't even begin to discuss the issues surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19). 

Everyone seems to have an opinion and is making it known on social media. Americans are fighting each other and some wonder if we are headed for another civil war. The 2020 Presidential elections are sure to cap off this year in even more controversy. Everyone is scared about the direction our country is going. 

I believe Christians have done a really poor job representing Christ on social media. Some Christians are extremely vocal about politics and others believe we shouldn't get involved in politics if we are Christians. In this video I will discuss the biggest way I see a lot of Christians failing on social media. I offer one Bible verse that should help us to regain our focus and give us a good course correction on how to represent Christ on social media.

DyerConversations #09 Creation and the Fall; How do they fit into the overall scheme of the Bible?

DyerConversations #09 Creation and the Fall; How do they fit into the overall scheme of the Bible?

August 29, 2020

There is a lot of debate among Christians regarding the creation story found in Genesis as well as the affects of Adam's sin. Do we need to understand all the technical details before we can learn from the Genesis account? I believe we can discover the purpose of the story before we start getting into the debates surrounding Genesis 1-3. In this episode, I will be giving a basic overview of the creation story and the Fall of man.

Coronavirus, The Church, and the Future of Online Worship

August 23, 2020

Coronavirus (COVID-19) has really changed the way everyone must function, including churches. Churches have tried to provide services online so people can still participate in corporate worship through this pandemic. Some churches were ahead of the curve with their media capabilities, while others have been scrambling to patch something together for their people. What is the future of the Church's online presence? David Willis and I discuss the need for churches to provide a quality experience online while still remaining authentic.
