Helping “Dying” Churches Finish Well With Rick Krug

Helping “Dying” Churches Finish Well With Rick Krug

March 4, 2021

Rick Krug joins the Wineskins podcast talking about a forthcoming book he has co-authored with Jessica Kapp titled, "Tombstones to Cornerstones: Why congregations are failing and what to do about it". The interview reframes what faithfulness is all about and how churches can finish well. This is needed perspective in a time when success can be measured with worldly metrics rather than biblical metrics. The book hasn't yet been published but when it is, we will make sure to let you know in the Wineskins Community Tab!

Do We Have Biblical Elders In Churches of Christ?

Do We Have Biblical Elders In Churches of Christ?

January 29, 2021

It is a question that can be difficult to tackle. Ministers can't touch it...they might get in hot water. Elders often are hesitant to tackle it. The church often just goes along with the leaders...but are our leaders biblical?

 

The Bible has far more to say about this than qualification checklists...just like marrying someone has qualifications like they be single, you know you are looking for a lot more than a single person. The Bible also gives us character traits and responsibilities of those in the role of elder in 1 Peter 5 and 1 Tim 5.

How To Destroy the Faith of Your Kids in Three Easy Steps

December 17, 2020

There are a number of things parents do that can later undermine the faith of their kids. It isn't about messing up on this a few times...but on these things being a pattern that forms a culture where faith doesn't grow well.

The three things are:
Don't allow questions or experience discovery
How you talk about God's people and church
Act like you are perfect

Is The Church of Christ Declining Faster or Slower Than Other Groups? The Answer May Surprise You!

Is The Church of Christ Declining Faster or Slower Than Other Groups? The Answer May Surprise You!

December 7, 2020

We all know we are in decline but there is more to the numbers than meets the eye. How does our change in attendance in Churches of Christ compare with other groups: Baptists, Methodists, etc.? Are they growing or declining faster than we are? What about the people out there who see themselves as Church of Christ but don't attend? How many people are out there like that and what does that tell us?

We Can Learn A Lot from the Pharisees: Confusing Tradition With Scripture

We Can Learn A Lot from the Pharisees: Confusing Tradition With Scripture

November 30, 2020

The Pharisees developed rules and traditions to keep Israel pure. The problem was they eventually confused violating their rules with violating the scriptures. We can do the same thing today. Let's take care to understand which parts of our belief are directly from the Bible and which things are tradition and made up rules. And let us be gracious to one another.

What is Legalism? How You See Yourself In Relation to God

What is Legalism? How You See Yourself In Relation to God

November 25, 2020

What is legalism? This is an important followup video to the previous video on why I left legalism. It isn't just trying to be obedient. It isn't about trying to believe the right thing. Legalism is about what you believe the effect of your obedience is all about. But that is really the symptom of something far deeper - how you see yourself in relation to God.

Why I Left Legalism

Why I Left Legalism

November 23, 2020

This is part of my story - a story from legalism to grace. It is a story of how God brought me through maturity to see the Bible, God and others through the lens of grace rather than through the pseudo-security of legalism. You may have a similar story. I would love to hear that in the comments!

Staying Faithful to the God Who Allows You To Suffer

November 21, 2020

There is a lot of hurt out there. As a Christian we have hope but it can be difficult to continue to trust a God who allows you to suffer? I don't have a magical answer to this problem but there are a few things we can consider that can help us cope and deal with our pain. This video shares a few of those and I hope and pray it is beneficial to you.
