EP # 124 | A Biblical Theology of Climate Change
“Climate change.” The term is ubiquitous. Everywhere you turn, it seems, the phrase “climate change” is in your face. But what exactly is “climate change” in the first place? Is it the same thing as biblical stewardship of the earth and its resources? How are Christians understand what “climate change” is and respond biblically to it? In this episode of the Just Thinking podcast, Darrell Harrison and Virgil “Omaha” Walker take you directly to Scripture to answer those questions, and others, in this expanded episode titled, A Biblical Theology of Climate Change.   Related: The End of the Universe: Part 1 – sermon by John MacArthur (Grace to You)The End of the Universe: Part 2 – sermon by John MacArthur (Grace to You)The End of the Universe: Part 3 – sermon by John MacArthur (Grace to You)The Dangers of Exaggerated Climate-Change Reporting – Created to Reign podcastThe Green Bible – Harper CollinsShould Climate Change Keep Us From Having Kids? – Answers in GenesisThe Essential Church movie website Children’s Hunger Fund website https://www.clcpublications.com/shop/the-forgotten-attributes-of-god/ “The Forgotten Attributes of God” — Dr. Peter Sammons Support To support the podcast, please click here or copy/paste the following link into your browser - https://justthinking.me/support/ Disclaimer © Darrell B.

EP # 121 | A Biblical Theology of Suffering
According to 1 Thessalonians 5:18, believers in Jesus Christ are to “give thanks in everything, for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.” But does ‘everything’ include giving thanks to God when we suffer?

It is a reality that professing believers in Jesus Christ must deal with until the day we die or Christ returns to take us home to heaven. But how are we to deal biblically with that reality?

EP # 119 | Cultural Denominationalism
Does the world have anything to offer the Church today? It appears that some protestant churches, denominations - and their leaders - seem to think so. But to what end? What's the payoff for them? Are there to be no distinctions between the kingdom of darkness (the world) and the kingdom of Light (the Church) in our churches and denominations? Those questions, and others, are the focus of Darrell Harrison and Virgil "Omaha" Walker in this episode of the Just Thinking podcast, titled "Cultural Denominationalism."

EP # 118 | A Biblical Response to Perfectionism

EP # 118 | A Biblical Response to Perfectionism
Behavioral perfectionism – not to be confused with the doctrine sometimes referred to as Christian perfectionism or sinless perfection – is a sin many professing Christians struggle with (yes, it is a sin). But not only is the individual perfectionist affected by their behavior, so are those who are closest to them. In this episode of the Just Thinking podcast, Darrell Harrison and Virgil “Omaha” Walker leverage their experience as biblical counselors to walk you through what the Word of God, and other trusted biblical sources, have to say about dealing biblically with the issue of behavioral perfectionism toward the goal of gaining victory over it.

EP # 117 | Evangelical Deconstructionism

EP # 117 | Evangelical Deconstructionism
In Colossians 2:8, the apostle Paul exhorts believers to not be taken captive through philosophies and deceptions that are rooted in the traditions of men. Deconstruction, a philosophy that has its origins in Marxism, is one of those deceptions. And yet, there are those within evangelicalism today who are actively promoting and advocating that deconstruction is good and virtuous for the church. In this episode of the Just Thinking podcast, hosts Darrell Harrison and Virgil ‘Omaha’ Walker make it clear that they do not concur with that view. Listen as they “turn pages” and discuss what God’s Word has to say about “Evangelical Deconstructionism.” That’s the title of episode 117 of the Just Thinking podcast.   Support To support the podcast, please click here or copy/paste the following link into your browser - https://justthinking.me/support/ Disclaimer © Darrell B.

EP # 113 | Why Are You Afraid?
COVID-19, mask mandates, vaccine passports, inflation, job security - these realities and more have many professing Christians today locked in the throes of fear and anxiety about the future. To be sure, not all fear and anxiety Christians experience is sinful, and yet there are times when the fear and anxiety we feel is, in fact, not in keeping with how God would have His people respond. How do you recognize and respond rightly to sinful fear and anxiety? What’s the remedy for overcoming it? Darrell Harrison and Virgil Walker consider those crucial questions through the lens of the Word of God in this episode of the Just Thinking podcast, titled “Why Are You Afraid?” Related Links - please visit https://justthinking.me/113   Support To support the podcast, please click here or copy/paste the following link into your browser - https://justthinking.me/support/ Disclaimer © Darrell B.

EP # 112 | Has God Really Said?
The topic of 'women preachers' and 'women pastors' has been hotly debated for decades within the evangelical church. Categories such as "complementarian" and "egalitarian" have been created to describe the two primary camps that seem increasingly divided over this subject. However, in this episode of the Just Thinking podcast, Darrell Harrison and Virgil "Omaha" Walker assert that this topic is not a matter of "ism's," but is a simple question of submission and obedience to the clear teachings of the Word of God. Listen as they look to the Scriptures to answer the age-old question, "Has God Really Said?" Does the Bible Permit a Woman to Preach? - John MacArthur, Grace to You What Does the Bible Say About Women Pastors? - Got Questions? "Ask Ligonier" with Pastor H.B. Charles: "Can you speak to the current topic of women as pastors/preachers?" - Ligonier Ministries (Pastor Charles's response begins at the 30:14 mark of the video) Support To support the podcast, please click here or copy/paste the following link into your browser - https://justthinking.me/support/ Disclaimer © Darrell B.

EP # 111 | Activist Theology
The #LeaveLOUD movement is urging black evangelical Christians to exit white evangelical spaces, primarily on the basis that white evangelical Christians don't recognize or celebrate black evangelical Christians for who they are. But is such a movement biblical? On this episode of the Just Thinking podcast, Darrell Harrison and Virgil 'Omaha' Walker take a look at #LeaveLOUD through the broader lens of "activist theology," and Christians who see an activist gospel as a means to achieve a particular end within the Church.

EP # 108 | Critical Race Theory
Critical Race Theory, or CRT for short, is, for many professing evangelicals today, a philosophy that is steeped in confusion and ambiguity. That is by design. In this expanded episode of the Just Thinking podcast, Darrell Harrison and Virgil “Omaha” Walker spend more than three hours unpacking the origins, tenets, and threats that Critical Race Theory poses not only to the evangelical church, but to society as a whole.   Resources Related episodes EP # 045 | Social Justice & the Gospel Related blog articles The Master’s University/Just Thinking Scholarships 2021Evangelicals and Race Theory — Dr. Carl Trueman, First ThingsNO!

EP # 106 | A Biblical Exposition of Unity
Subsequent to the presidential election held in the United States on November 3, 2020, many evangelical leaders, primarily on social media, began exhorting Christians to come together in a spirit of unity around the presumed incoming administration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Notwithstanding that, officially, the outcome of the aforementioned contest had yet to be determined, a fundamental question remains: What kind of unity is acceptable to the church and, more importantly, to God? In their final episode of the 2020 podcast season, Darrell Harrison and Virgil "Omaha" Walker answer that question expositionally—and unequivocally—from Scripture.    Resources Related episodes EP # 047 | Where is Your Hope?EP # 079 | One Church, One BodyEP # 096 | Christian ContentmentEP # 099 | Assurance of Salvation Related blog articles The Gospel in a Hostile World - Jeremiah Johnson (Grace to You blog post)The Basis of Christian Unity - D.
