Marco's back in the seat! He and Danny answer some questions that were sent in (thank you!) regarding how sin affects the believer differently from the unbeliever. They also dig a little more into some tricky statements that Paul makes in Romans 7 and seek to bring a little more clarity.
Ben hops in the cohost chair as he and Danny discuss the joys (and challenges) of sequential exposition. Together they discuss the challenge of Paul's illustration this week, as well as Ben brings us all up to speed about Elevate and shares his thoughts from having just finished Colossians.

We make up for a few weeks off by going WAY into "penalty minutes." First, the podcast starts off with discussing the text, including questions like, "If feeling struggles to come on board with doctrine, does that mean we are actually lacking faith?" "How can the way the world labels sin patterns actually get in the way of us overcoming faith?" and Marco asks Danny to give some examples from his own life on presenting himself for righteousness, rather than sin.
Then, we go "bonus mode" by offering some follow-up thoughts and applications from Danny's discussion of the Dobb's decision in the Supreme Court, that he shared on July 3.
Marco and Danny break down some of the sermon from Sunday as we get back into Romans. Marco also recaps his sermon from John 4, which he preached at another church. Lastly, they jump back to Acts 1 and answer a question that was texted in about using how to use our personal testimony in a way that doesn't sound like "my truth" as people today will quickly accept.

Tim Berry and Danny sit on the porch (sorry about the traffic noise) and unpack Tim's sermon from our Core Values series on "Engage." They address issues like "enjoying God" and even how the British culture may be previewing for us what is to come in the US (and why you don't need to panic about that).
