What is Faith?

On this week’s episode of Theology Simply Profound, from Acts 28, Rob and Bob discuss everything from snake handling to saving faith… in reality, the discussion lands primarily on the nature of faith. How does saving faith differ from the belief that UFOs will one day arrive to wisp the faithful away to a better place? Hmm. Essentially, is the faith of a Christian the same kind of faith we find in a cult?

Exorcism and the Christian

This week on Theology Simply Profound, Rob and Bob take up the subject of exorcisms, yeah really!

So, may a Christian be demon possessed? Should pastor be trained to perform exorcisms? Oh, and Rob really geeks out on Sci-Fi. . . so you’re in for a treat!
