Voices In My Head Podcast #183: Finding God in the Exorcist with Guest Ben DeBono

October 25, 2016

On this episode of the podcast Ben DeBono of the Sci Fi Christian Podcast drops by to talk about the classic horror film and novel, The Exorcist. It is our belief that the story is not as much a tale of the demonic as of the God who overcomes all evil. Listen in as we discuss one of the first faith based films to be made by Hollywood. Long before there was Facing the Giants, there was, The Exorcist. Join us as we search for God in the Exorcist.

"Do not despise my command because you know me to be a sinner. It's God himself who commands you! The majestic Christ who commands! God the Father commands you! God the son commands you! God the holy spirit commands you! The mystery of the cross commands you! The blood of the martyrs commands you!"


Voices In My Head Podcast #182 - The Sermons of Karl Barth part 3

October 17, 2016

This is part three in the "Sermons of Karl Barth" series. It's another early sermon of Barth and we can see his theology forming and being shaped by the likes of Hermann in this sermon. A very similar sermon style to what we often hear today but it was a bit more revolutionary back then with its straw man premise. Prepare for the coming day of the Lord as we wait for and hasten to our God in part three of Voices In My Head Podcast's sermons of Karl Barth series.


Podcast #181: Walter Brueggemann Returns

Brueggemann is widely considered one of the most influential Old Testament scholars of the last several decades. Today we discuss his new book in the Interpretations series, Money and Possessions.


Podcast 180 - The Brothers McClurg Anthony Hoisington

October 6, 2016

It was a great honor to sit down and chat with Anthony Hoisington Of the Worship Band, The Brothers McClurg minutes after they led worship at the National Worship Leaders Conference in Kansas City on October 6th, 2016. We talk about leading worship in local churches, while on the road, and about the new Brothers McClurg project coming out in 2017.


Episode 179: Racism In America - A Conversation with Brandon Sipes and Randy Smoot

September 30, 2016

Randy Smoot is a probation officer in the Clark County Juvenile Court.

Brandon Sipes is program coordinator for Nazarene Compassionate Ministries.

Prompted by the police shootings in Tulsa and Charlotte, on this episode of Voices In My Head we discuss the problems of racism in America, both explicit and subtle. We talk about things like white privilege, racial fatigue, racial violence, being a parent of black children in America, an imbalance of power and more.

Our hope is that conversations like these will happen more and more. Racism will not just go away by pretending it isn't there or hoping it disappears. We are all guilty of prejudice and often by being silent we make the problem worse. This is our attempt at not being silent. We must not allow our fear of saying the wrong thing keep us from having the conversation.

Barth preached this sermon on Easter Sunday in 1917 (April 8th). He said he could almost "hear the sound of guns booming away in the north."Christ in this sermon is portrayed as a preacher who brings a one word sermon, and that word is "God!"

Rick Lee James making a music video on September 23rd and I'm requesting three things from the listeners of Voices in My Head:

1.) Prayer
2.) Financial Support
3.) Your Prayerfully Imaginative Ideas for the video

Our hope is to portray that while we are in the midst of great brokenness, and longing that we hopefully look to the great mystery of our faith Christ has died, Christ Is Risen, and that Christ is Coming Back again.
