Today we're joined by Jinger Duggar Vuolo, author of "Becoming Free Indeed: My Story of Disentangling Faith from Fear," and formerly of the "19 Kids and Counting" franchise. In her new book, Jinger shares her theological journey from following a fundamentalist leader to finding freedom in Christ. We discuss her upbringing under the teachings of Bill Gothard, who taught strict rules on modesty and behavior, and how these teachings were rooted in fear, superstition, and control and led Jinger to believe she needed to earn favor with God. We discuss her childhood growing up on TV (despite never watching TV), struggling with an eating disorder, and wrestling with the idea of attending a church outside her doctrine growing up. We discuss how Jinger met her husband, Jeremy, and how his theology helped shape hers. Jinger explains the difference between “deconstruction” and “disentangling” faith and why disentangling can lead to true restoration under biblical truth. --- Timecodes: (01:09) Interview with Jinger begins / "Becoming Free Indeed" (02:00) Bill Gothard's teaching (08:58) Growing up on TV (14:50) Struggling with fear (19:30) Struggling with an eating disorder (22:00) Parental authority & gaining favor with God (27:30) Letting go of old theology (40:20) Deconstruction vs. disentanglement --- Today's Sponsors: A'Del — go to adelnaturalcosmetics.com and enter promo code "ALLIE" for 25% off your first order!

In this sermon, Pastor Clint looks at Romans 8:1-4 to see how Jesus sets us free. In Christ, our condemnation has been annulled, our liberation has begun, and the Spirit empowers us to walk in newness of life. Romans 8 has been called the greatest chapter in the Bible. Listen and be encouraged to live out your identity in Christ.
As the Church grows and groups of people that previously were separated come together they encounter challenges. Paul is committed to helping them see that Jesus and only Jesus is the glue that should hold them together.
Based on the weekly Parashat Torah reading called Shemot, which includes Ex 1-6 I'll be borowing several ideas for this Selah from a teaching on this week's Parshat reading by Roger Hadad from the Mikdash Congregation in High Point, NC. The title of Roger's teaching was Slave or Slave, You Choose, which is a great title, but I'm titling this Selah episode False Freedom. In America we're all about Freedom and our individual rights, and while there's some truth and good in that, there's also some real danger and false thinking associated with that, especially when we merge and equate those American ideals with freedom that's described in the Bible, particularly in the New Testament. In Exodus 1-6 we learn that Israel has been slaves for a long time (400 years), slaves You start thinking that way, slave mentality Reactive-your freedom to choose is taken away, you start thinking that way, limited Pessimistic-everything is bad and you have no control Lacks spiritual discernment- while you're working you stop thinking about spiritual things and focus on natural needs Ex 14:11-12 - Israelites complain, this becomes a pattern in scripture again and again Reactive, pessimistic and lack of spiritual discernment Numbers 14:1-4 Ex 16:2-3 In ancient history if one country conquers a land, you can kill them, tax them or enslave them We often think of the story of the Exodus all about God's people becoming free from slavery in Egypt. Interesting that Lev 25:55 "For the children of Israel are servants to Me; they are My servants whom I brought out of the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God." THis seems to go against the idea that God's goal was just to set the Israelites free. A little side note here I used to be a big collector of Christian t-shirts and one of them had a picture of a the Liberty Bell and it said "Let Freedom Ring" then quoted Gal 5:1 "It is for freedom that Christ has set us free" Rom 6:18 "And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness." 1 Peter 2:15-16 "For this is the will of God, that by doing good you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men— 16 as free, yet not using liberty as a cloak for vice, but as bondservants of God. " What follows the Ten Commandments in Ex 20 is very interesting, a command on servitude Ex 21:2-6 If you buy a Hebrew servant, he shall serve six years; and in the seventh he shall go out free and pay nothing. 3 If he comes in by himself, he shall go out by himself; if he comes in married, then his wife shall go out with him. 4 If his master has given him a wife, and she has borne him sons or daughters, the wife and her children shall be her master's, and he shall go out by himself. 5 But if the servant plainly says, ‘I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out free,' 6 then his master shall bring him to the judges. He shall also bring him to the door, or to the doorpost, and his master shall pierce his ear with an awl; and he shall serve him forever 6 years slave, then free 7th year Spiritually 7 is a number of completion, like the 7th day of creation Gods Master Plan (4 steps) Redemption (Passover a type of Yeshua's blood sacrifice to pay for our sins) Baptism - outward expression of our acceptance of that redemption Tutor - sometimes referred to as sanctification, walking out this new life ____ Law is tutor Prov 16:3 "Commit your works to the Lord, And your thoughts will be established" Prov 16:9 "A man's heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps" This is new thinking Prov 4:23 Prov 3:6-7 "In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall [a]direct your paths. 7 Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and depart from evil." This is not slave thinking, it's free thinking, it's what Torah gives you to understand Yeshua fed the 5000 with a miracle Then He speaks hard truths (eat flesh, drink blood), people started leaving Prov 3:5 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;" John 6:68 "But Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life." Graduation moment, He set them free, like year 7 Once they are complete set them free Ex 21:5 " But if the servant plainly says, ‘I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out free," Crucial moment in the Gospel I love my master I will not go Ex 21:6 "then his master shall bring him to the judges. He shall also bring him to the door, or to the doorpost, and his master shall pierce his ear with an awl; and he shall serve him forever" Doorpost bc of commandments Deut 11:20, part of the Shma says we are to write his law on the doorposts and on our gates. THis action of driving the awl through your ear on the doorpost seems to indicate You become one with the law Jer 31:33, also quoted twice in Hebrews "But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people" John 14:15 " “If you love Me, keep My commandments" John 15:14-15 "You are My friends if you do whatever I command you. 15 No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you" In Christianity, it's often said we now only have 2 commandments, to love God and to love others. But what does that mean? Do we answer that question with our own ideas and or with what God has told us. It's said there are 613 commandments in the Torah, the first 5 books of the Bible, and there are over 1,000 commandments in the New Testament. Jesus, Yeshua actually raised the bar on many of the commandments in the Old Testament saying that not only should we not physically commit adultery but that we should not lust in our hearts. So the choice we have, in my opinion, is not slavery or freedom. The choice is to whom will you be a slave, to sin or to righteousness. To Pharoah or God. In our day, you might say to Babylon or to Israel. So the 4th step in God's master plan is to voluntarily be a slave to Yah the one and only God. How does this look? Trust the Lord and He will direct Your steps Process is messy, when we get off track we get right back Plan your life so don't fall into the ways of the world Or as my friend and mentor Filip says when you fall, fall towards the cross not away from the cross. One of my favorite songs I used to listen to on a contemporary CHristian compilation, I think it was called WOW hits from Lifeway, was a song "I am free" by Newsboys. THe chorus has 3 lines: And I am free to run (I am free to run) And I am free to dance (I am free to dance) And I am free to live for You (I am free to live for You) Now there's nothing wrong with running and dancing, and I'm glad they included the line that I'm free to live for you, but I was personally always a little confused by these lyrics, and wondered to myself what is freedom in CHrist really all about? I'm definitely still trying to figure this question out, but this 4-step master plan Roger talked about is getting a lot closer to the truth, I believe, than what I've thought of as freedom in the past. Application at work, when we go to work do we demand our rights and our freedoms? Well, if we do we probably will be looking for another job. I understand the government has established rights for workers including minimum pay, a safe workplace and other rules that are good, but should be our heart at work be about demanding our rights? How about our personal relationships, should our focus be on our individual rights and getting what's best for us? Trust me, I've been there and found out how foolish and wrong that attitude is. I recently learned what's called the Humility Prayer from Dr. Joe Martin who leads the RealMenConnect Podcast and the RealMen300 group I'm a part of. It goes like this: "I can only make requests, I have no rights, I walk by faith, not by sight. And If my requests are denied, I endure by seeking Your face. And anything I receive is by your grace". E Encouragement Joshua 1:9 "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go" L Laugh from REaders's Digest "A little boy, whenever he visited his friend's house the boy's grandmother was engrossed in the Bible. He asked his friend why she was always reading the Bible and the boy replied " I don't know but I think she's cramming for the finals". A Adversity and affliction Psalm 119:67 "Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I keep your word" There can be many benefits of afflication and adversity. As they see in my RealMen300 group, Tribulation brings revelation. H Judges 17:6 - "In those days there was no king in Israel. Every man did what we right in his own eyes" Reminder to make sure you staff at work is well trained and know what they need to do and how to do it.

In this episode, we discuss freedom in Christ. We all have places in our lives where the enemy has whispered a lie. A lie that tells us we will never escape the bondage of our sins. That we will always be slaves to something. But these whispers are just that - a lie. We are not made to be filled with weakness! We are made to live in freedom. Christ came to earth to break the chains of sin and death. He has created a pathway for us to live in freedom. Friends, what if the place of your greatest pain could become the place of your greatest holiness? Join us as we discuss how we are made for freedom. Heather's One Thing- Live in the Prayer Room by Jeremy Riddle Michelle's One Thing - Soul of Shame, Dr. Curt Thompson Sister Miriam's One Thing - Double Chocolate Walnut Biscotti Recipe Double Chocolate Walnut Biscotti Yield Makes about 30 biscotti Ingredients 2 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon salt 3/4 stick (6 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened 1 cup granulated sugar 2 large eggs 1 cup walnuts, chopped 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips 1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar Preparation Preheat the oven to 350°F. Add butter and flour on a large baking sheet. Whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. In another bowl with an electric mixer, beat together butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and beat until combined well. Stir in the flour mixture to form a stiff dough. Stir in walnuts and chocolate chips. On a prepared baking sheet with floured hands, form dough into two slightly flattened logs, each 12 inches long and 2 inches wide, and sprinkle with confectioners' sugar. Bake logs for 35 minutes or until slightly firm to the touch. Cool biscotti on a baking sheet for 5 minutes. On a cutting board, cut biscotti diagonally into 3/4-inch slices. Arrange biscotti, cut sides down on the baking sheet, and bake until crisp, about 10 minutes. Cool biscotti on a rack. Biscotti keep in airtight containers for 1 week and frozen for 1 month Discussion Questions: What would it look like for me to be free? Is it more comfortable to live in my chains or pursue freedom? When have I experienced the fruit of inner healing in the past? What is a place of bondage in my life that the Lord is inviting me into greater freedom? Journal Questions: Where would I experience more freedom in my heart and in my life if I truly believed the power of the Resurrection lived in me? How has the Lord called me out of bondage and into freedom in the past? What are the places of self hatred in my heart? How can I receive and accept the Lord's tenderness there? Quotes to Ponder: "If you want to hold people in chains, one must first convince them that they are meant to be bound." // from the movie “Woman King” “As long as this attachment remains, it is impossible to make progress in perfection, even though the imperfection be very small. It makes little difference whether a bird is tied by a thin thread or by a cord. Even if it is tied by a thread, the bird will be held bound… it will be impeded from flying as long as it does not break the thread.” // St John of the Cross, Ascent of Mt. Carmel, Book One, 11.4. Scripture for Lectio: “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” (Galatians 5:1) Sponsor - House of Joppa: This week's episode is sponsored by House of Joppa.

In this series based on David Legge's book, 'Breaking Through Barriers to Blessing', we continue exploring how we can be set free from bondages of Satan and healed from wounds of the heart. This series is for people who need set free themselves, or for those who want to be used to help others into freedom. In this second session, 'The Necessity Of Confession And Repentance', David looks at the issues of sin and how confession and repentance is a necessary step toward freedom in Christ. We need to own our ungodly behaviours. If we are going to get help ourselves or help others we've got to be real with ourselves and see sin the way God sees it.

Get excited because Pastor Jeremy Johnson is continuing our incredible series about "Declaring War on Fear." In Prayer Changes Things, we are digging into the amazing word of God to excavate the gold God has for us to uncover in this New Year. God is ready to equip us to be victorious in every battle. Christ desires nothing more than for us to live in complete freedom. According to His word, He set us free to experience complete liberty, healing, and deliverance. However, something continues to pull us back into a mindset of fear, binding us from being able to complete the work God called us to do. Today is the day to walk into fullness of freedom in Christ. God doesn't want us caged but desires for us to break every cycle that has held us. Together, we will destroy the works of darkness. As we press into our fears, we can rest in the knowledge that Christ has already broken every obstacle in the spirit realm to our advancement. Listen up, as Pastor Jeremy encourages us to stand in our authority and cross over into the promise land this year. Together, we will overcome knowing that a "Scared World needs a Fearless Church."
Now that we have freedom in Christ, how do we manage it? And what does it mean to "walk in the Spirit?" This is one of the most critical spiritual life skills we can ever learn. Listen in and learn to walk!

Welcome back to Heaven & Healing Podcast — the first episode of 2023! This is my special “One Year with Jesus” anniversary episode where I share the synopsis of my testimony for anyone who hasn't heard it before and from there reflect on what my first full year walking with the Lord has been like. The episode starts with the background context of where I'm coming from: New Age spirituality, obsessed with ‘self-healing' modalities such as tarot, astrology, yoga, reiki, crystal healing and more. I discuss how even though I spent nearly a decade entrenched in those things, there was never true, substantial healing — only bouts of relief that would eventually perpetuate more patterns of bad behavior, anxiety and chronic depression. I was 27 years old, curled up on my kitchen floor ready to end my life when I called out to Jesus Christ for the first time in September 2021. By late December 2021, after straddling the fence of “New Age Christianity” for several months, I finally laid my life before the Lord's feet in conviction of the Holy Spirit and, by the grace of God, surrendered faith to Jesus Christ entirely. Christ healed my relationship anxiety, my ongoing depression, my lustful tendencies and my bondage to demonic deception of NA. A year later, I continue to be sanctified by God's peace that surpasses all understanding. In this episode, I share what it was like with my NA circle after I came to know Jesus, how my mom's salvation followed my own, give a look into my relationship with my fiancé before and after his experience finally coming-to-Christ, reflect on the difference in how I handle struggles before I knew Jesus vs. now, share some things I am accused of with maintaining my platform, praise God for the opportunities He has given me to glorify Himself, discuss the way God has both humbled my theology and allowed me to embrace my freedom in Christ post-NA where I was afraid of demonic deception. There's a special message for unbelievers at the end that I pray God will use to reach ears to listen. Finally, I conclude with an important announcement regarding future exclusive content.

#081 This is our first of eight episodes in our eleventh mini-series. This mini-series is entitled, Mystery of Christ | Galatians to 2 Thessalonians. On this episode we're going to overview Galatians which has been noted as the single most important book that fueled the reformation of the church. Now to the book of Galatians. Galatians was the key text that fueled the reformation of the church and its seminal doctrine of justification by grace through faith. Both Martin Luther and John Wesley noted the significant impact of this epistle on their lives and ministries. Paul wrote the letter to the church in Galatia either from Ephesus between 53-56 A.D. or from Macedonia in 56 A.D. Many scholars consider the book of Galatians as a condensed version of Paul's epistle to the Romans. Paul is believed to have written the book of Romans from Corinth in 57 A.D. The location of the church receiving the letter in Galatia is not known as Galatia refers to a Roman political province in southern Asia Minor; the northern Mediterranean coast of the country of Turkey today. Paul visited this area planting churches on his first missionary journey with Barnabas. And again, returned to this area on his second and third missionary journeys.The issue Paul was addressing in this letter were problems being raised in the church by the false teaching of Judaizers. These Judaizers were Jewish believers who sincerely believed a gentile had to become a Jew first, be circumcised, and then having faith in Jesus follow the law of Moses. They were instructing the Galatian believers to give up their freedom in Christ and return to bondage the Jews had lived with under the law. Paul adamantly rejects this false gospel of works and demonstrates that justification is by grace through faith, apart from works of the law.The epistle is only six chapters and can be divided into three sections. In Chapters 1 and 2, Paul defends the gospel of grace. He explains the gospel of grace in Chapters 3 and 4. And finally, he describes how the gospel of grace is applied in Chapters 5 and 6. With all this an as introduction, let's get started with our overview of the book.

Our guest today is Amanda Thompson. She serves as a Field Staff with Freedom in Christ, discipling women both locally and around the country through Zoom. She lives in Texas with her husband, Valiant, and her three sons. Amanda gave her life to Christ at 12 years old, but prior to that, she was abused by a relative for many years. This left her with a deep sense of shame and guilt, and she carried this over into her relationship with the Lord. For 20 years, Amanda tried hard to be a “good Christian girl” so that God wouldn't regret His decision to make her His child. But that didn't work. Eventually, in her second marriage, during a season of infidelity and self-hatred, Amanda hit rock bottom and was confronted with the question: did God actually exist? In that moment, she decided that yes, God was real, and since He was real, He must be big enough to fix everything she had messed up. Not long after, Amanda's mom gave her a copy of the book Victory Over the Darkness by Neil Anderson, and she found herself crying her way through it as she learned that she was loved, accepted and significant to God. God used this truth to revolutionize her life, marriage, and relationship with Him as he led her to greater freedom and healing. Today, Amanda sees all of life as a journey towards Christ likenesses, and she's passionate about helping others on this journey, too. Let's dive in to our conversation with Amanda Thompson.

For more than 15 years, Anthony and Nikole have devoted their energy to passionately sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ. In April of 2006 when Anthony was paroled out of prison his number one goal was to see his family restored and share with others how to find freedom in Christ .On June 24th, 2006, Anthony & Nikole were remarried in a little Methodist Church in Kankakee IL. Since that day they have been following the Lord's direction together, publicly sharing their testimony and God's plan for marriage, family, and life, everywhere they go.
Our guest today is Mary Antony. She's a wife, mom of 3 daughters, and is passionate about sharing the truths of our identity in Christ with others. Mary grew up as a missionary kid in Mumbai, India. It was really hard for her family to live out their faith in a culture that equated spiritual blessing with physical blessing. Because her family was not materially affluent, Mary doubted God's love and presence in her life, and she came to believe lies about God and herself. While she kept up the appearance of being a good missionary kid, she became skeptical of living a life surrendered to God. Mary was determined to take control of her own life. She didn't want anyone telling her what to do, and she definitely didn't want to follow a God that seemed like He didn't love her. Eventually, Mary found success in the modeling industry, but it wasn't long before this left her feeling empty inside. Then, one night, her life was forever changed when she opened up her Bible for the first time in years. Unbeknown to Mary, her mom had been on a 21-day water fast for her salvation after her mom took hold of her own identity and freedom in Christ through reading Neil Anderson's books. On this episode, Mary shares about her powerful salvation story, how Freedom in Christ transformed her entire family, and why she believes every Christian needs to know their identity in Christ and understand spiritual warfare.

Imagine being told from a very young age that the church your family attends is the only real church in the world? That even the thought of leaving the church is tantamount to rebellion against God?Our guest on today's episode experienced that, and let's just say it had a negative effect on her. After becoming wise to the ways of the world, Karen Y. Wilson Wilson-Starks realized the folly of such a doctrine and finally left her church. But it came at a cost of also leaving the only identity in Jesus she had ever known.A true "wilderness experience" as she puts it. But those who have tasted the good things of God always come back to Him, and Karen did so eventually. She's dealt with her fair share of legalism and man-made criteria as an adult after rediscovering her love for God, but has also met legit shining lights for the Gospel. So much so that she ministers to those who have endured similar estrangement from the Truth and encourages them to seek and find Jesus.In this conversation with Dr. Karen Y.

Is Jesus really The Only Way? In a world that celebrates unlimited choices, how do we embrace the power of limitation?In the final installment of our series, Only The Church, Pastor Ben Lee gives us the key to combat too many choices. Choose Jesus — He is The Only Way. As a people we often associate options with freedom. By hearing that there is Only One option, it can appear limiting. But when we fully understand the reality that Jesus is The Only Way, The Truth and The Life, we receive full freedom in Christ.Barry Schwartz says, “… the paradox of choice suggests that having too many choices actually limits our freedom.” Hearing Jesus is the ONLY way, is the most encouraging thing for us as believers. In His grace, we receive the redemption of Jesus so that we can be in relationship with God. Because Jesus is The Only Way, God fulfills His redemptive plan through us, Only the Church, by bringing heaven to earth.Catch the full series:Week 1 - We've Only Just Begun - Pastor Adam Smallcombehttps://youtu.be/rV9IwBYqKRIWeek 2 - Only The Church - Pastor Keira Smallcombehttps://youtu.be/oqnsDARZ-yMWeek 3 - If Only - Pastor Adam Smallcombehttps://youtu.be/YSX7PqsVysw
When we are seeking a way to be delivered from our sin, Pastor Ford points us to the writings of the Apostle Paul in Romans. In Romans 6 Paul says, “Who the Son sets free is free indeed.” Now what is Paul’s point, exactly? He’s saying to us, “Listen, you need to know that you have to die to your sin in order to live.” Freedom in Christ comes after dying to self.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
