The Podcast

5MDI – The Perfection Controversy

5MDI – The Perfection Controversy

This is the third part of our five-part series on the most divisive issues in Adventism. This issue of perfection, or perhaps more accurately, the nature and origin of our perfection. This has generated large-scale debate for a long time, both parties, either rightly or wrongly feel condemned by the other, so it is a difficult issue for most to speak dispassionately about, but that is what we are attempting to do today.

5MDI – The Nature of Christ

5MDI – The Nature of Christ

This is the first of a 5 part series on the most divisive issues in Adventism. The Nature of Christ is one that seems to come up over and over again, so it is a fitting place to start!

Digital Discipleship Conference 2018

Digital Discipleship Conference 2018

We went to the 2018 Digital Discipleship conference! So we thought it only fair that we draw back the curtain and share what we learned and what you guys can expect in the future. We also deliver a boat-load of shout-outs to the great people that we met while we were there.

5MDI-The Godhead Controversy

5MDI-The Godhead Controversy

This is the second part of our 5 part series on the most divisive issues in Adventism. Godhead is an issue that has ended friendships, split churches and caused much friction for decades and decades, this is our attempt to look at scripture from our point of view and present a strategy for when we cant agree.

Domestic Violence

Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is not pretty, and on top of that it is frighteningly common. We feel that it is time for us to shine a spotlight on it from our perspective.

If your first thought is “this doesn’t effect me” please know that this episode is for everyone. Just because you may not be effected does not mean this is not relevant, because statistically you have several friends who are either suffering or potentially participating in this problem.

The idea for this episode was shared with us by a new friend in the South NewZealand Conference. Shout-out to you Lindita!

What Bible version should you read?

What Bible version should you read?

Bible versions can be a sensitive topic depending on who you talk to. In this discussion we attempt to leave dogma at the door and have an honest conversation about how we can responsibly approach this topic.

Note: We had a technical issue with Nathanael’s mic so we had to pull his audio from one of the other mics and over-amplify it, so our apologies for the poor occasional drop in quality.

Who are we?

 

Ben

Ben is our resident history expert, especially when it comes to reformation history. He is definitely the quiet analyst of our group. He brings an intellectual rigour that is insightful and unique.

Dave

Dave is a strong thinker, with a great deal of experience behind him. He has a great gift for expressing truth in a relational way that allows you to see the big picture.

Luke

Luke is the direction setting structurer of our group. Providing the broad knowledge, mental stability and enthusiastic expression that makes the conversation dynamic. Luke is a valuable asset at our table.

Mat

Mat, another history buff, has an uncanny ability to express complex ideas in easy-to-understand sound-bites. However his biggest contribution to the group is his energy. He keeps us all motivated and adds loads of authenticity.

Nathanael

Nathanael, although quietly spoken has a beautiful depth to his thinking and an excellent talent for using object lessons to really drive his point home. On top of that, he is also our Audio Engineer, talk about multi-skilled!

What are we doing?

We are just five guys from a regional town in Australia, with everyday jobs, everyday lives with one big thing in common. We love Jesus.

The Method

Inspired by the guys over at Lightbearers we decided to simply sit around a table and record the spiritual conversations we were already having in the hope that they would encourage others to do the same.

The Topics
