Aaron & Jason sit down to discuss Jason’s journey of life and mental health, as they *unqualifiedly* respond to the question, “How do you know how to read the Bible to help you through mental health when you feel like you don’t fit in this world and you don’t belong, and can’t just pull verses?” What does it mean? How can we learn and understand ve…
 
What is Heaven? One writer says that Heaven is, “The full manifestation of what it means to bow the knee to God in full submission to Him for eternity.” Heaven is true and real life with God, it is not about us. People today tend to define a “heaven” that is focused on ourselves and not a true Heaven that is focused upon Christ. But if Heaven wasn’…
 
Aaron & Janelle sit down to discuss her questions, -John 4:13-14 “Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the father may be glorified in the son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it.” I have asked for healing for relatives and friends but it has never happened – yet there are miracles for some but not for others – I am confuse…
 
What is God’s aim in telling the creation narrative the way He does? It is correcting the understanding of His people, so they know that there is ONE TRUE GOD who made everything. God telling the story in Genesis makes some important distinctions from the other stories His people may have been indoctrinated to in Egypt. Other creation stories all p…
 
Aaron & Janet sit down to discuss her question, What’s the context behind “wives submitting to their husbands”? Some people take it so literally….. is it really meant that way? What does it mean? How can we learn and understand verses that are confusing? Do you have questions? Email questions@ourelement.org WATCH FULL SERVICE ON YOUTUBE WATCH THIS …
 
When Isaiah speaks of God’s thoughts being above ours, it can be seen as a secret type of knowledge that is inaccessible to us simple-minded humans; instead, it is speaking about the mercy of God being inaccessible to us sinful hearted humans. God sees all the places our lives take turns that are unexpected to us. There are times when we are left s…
 
Aaron & Michelle sit down to discuss questions around John 20 where it says, And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you withhold forgiveness from any, it is withheld.” What does it mean? How can we learn and understand verses that are conf…
 
Many misunderstandings about the Bible start with misunderstanding what the Bible actually is: 1. The Bible is a library, not a book. The Bible is 66 books in two parts (old testament and New Testament) combined under one cover. The Bible is the PRIMARY way God still speaks to us today. 2. The Bible was written for us, but not to us. The Bible is F…
 
There are some Christians who say that those who don’t believe the Bible or trust in Jesus, “just need to read the Bible,” but what happens if they do read the Bible and it has the opposite effect? Could the Bible make people atheists if they read it cover to cover? Penn Jillete (from Penn and Teller fame) is an atheist and once said, “Reading the …
 
James, throughout his letter, deals with confusion, discipline, the need for confession of sins, and he will end with a push to restore (bring back) those who have wandered. James never shies away from calling sin “sin,” or “wandering” sin, but he reminds us that God has a greater purpose in one another’s lives, a purpose beyond judgment. The New T…
 
James talks about prayer and the reasons we must be a people who are known by it in today’s verses. Prayer is, in its simplest form, communication with God, talking with Him. It is not meditation or reflection, it is communication with the one who created us. Prayer can be silent or audible, in private or public, formal or informal. In James 1 he s…
 
Today, James tells us something that Jesus first said, “let your yes be yes and your no be no.” How easy is it now to add a few words to a statement trying to strengthen what we say? How often do we try to quote statistics (that may or may not be true) or use words like “they say…” when we don’t know who “they” are? When James talks about oaths it …
 
Patience is one of the fruits that the Holy Spirit brings when we are filled by and led by God. Today our whole society is built around not being patient, yet James says it is vital in the life of those who follow Jesus. Patience enables us to stand with God in situations we do not understand.

Money can be dangerous, one writer says, "The heart is deceptive. A love of money is deadly, and it's only the gospel that can deliver us from this." The default position of our hearts is usually one that thinks we are doing well; James reminds us that we need to check our hearts (what we do with money in this case) to see what you truly love. WATC…
 
In our world today, people have a lot of questions about God. When we do not face our doubts or fears about our beliefs, we lack a truly genuine faith (trust). When we work through honest (not self-serving) doubts, that effort can begin to grow our trust in God. Too many people think that in order to believe in Jesus, they have to turn their minds …
 
James asks a lot of hard questions throughout his short letter, questions that are very practical to our lives today. He shows us that how we live in the world (false wisdom or true wisdom) are both built on a view of God and how He behaves in the world. Today, James will make us look at our lives in regard to arrogance and how we think we have ult…
 
There are 3 primary tools in regard to growing in true wisdom: The Scriptures – The point of the Scriptures is Jesus. The community of the church – If we want to walk in true wisdom, we surround ourselves with people who love Jesus and submit to His Word. Those who are further along than us in “the faith” and in life – We should seek guidance, in h…
 
James, in the previous verses, has talked about how true and real Christianity will come out in our words, actions, and hearts. In James Chapter 2 he finished speaking about the poor and our heart issues, now he moves that to our words (our speech). James shows that walking with Christ comes through a humility, our salvation is not about our self-s…

James makes us ask ourselves hard questions about whether we truly believe what we say we believe; the book is a great look at whether we are truly followers of Christ. At the end of most of these weeks in James there is supposed to be introspective thinking; asking if we truly belong to Jesus or not. James does his best to show us the reality of w…
 
If you go to most dictionaries today, they will define religion as, “an organized system of beliefs and rituals centering on a supernatural being or beings.” Is that all religion is or meant to be, an organized system of beliefs or rituals?

The book of Judges contains some of the most scandalous and strange stories in the entire Bible. In one of the darkest periods in the history of God’s people, we’ll see what God can do with the most broken of heroes—and behind every hero, we’ll see a God who remains faithful even when we are faithless. Through it all, we’ll be reminded that no huma…
