Podcast Interview "Living With..."

I had the honor of being interviewed for the podcast, "Living With..." recently. Here is what this iTunes channel is all about (in Tom's own words): 


Living With… is about those living with cancer and other diseases or challenges. It's a community of inspirational people who got some bad news, were dealt a terrible hand, a horrible diagnosis, which changed their lives forever. I have Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS), a progressive bone marrow disease which robs the body of its ability to produce blood cells and fight infection. For some reason the body stops making proper blood cells, leaving the body weak and vulnerable. Treatments include blood transfusions, drugs to boost blood cell production, and ultimately bone marrow transplant. My levels have declined considerably. I take drugs to keep my levels from declining even more, but no one knows how long they will work. I get routine blood tests to monitor my levels. I used to be an avid runner and have run several 5k, 10k, half & full marathons. I suffer from lack of energy and fatigue, but I’m able to work and do most things if I pace myself. Now, I am a walker, but I haven’t given up. I miss running, but I’m alive! The Living With Podcast is my way of bringing you interviews with inspirational people who are living with cancer, illness, and other challenges. I feel we can learn a lot from them, be inspired by them and ultimately live more meaningful and fulfilling lives. I hope you will listen to the podcast and will be entertained and inspired!

It's a little bit long because, hey, it's me - I was born talking - but you could listen to some, go take care of some stuff, then come back, etc. I had a blast talking with Tom, and it was really fun to listen to his other podcasts and hear other people's stories. It is a privilege to share my story with others. It is a privilege that I am here on this earth. I am humbled that Tom found my story to be one that would be a benefit to the community.

    The gospel is the good news, but what is the good news? The good news is that those who hear and obey the gospel are saved from the penalty of sin.

    1 Corinthians 15:1-2 Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which you received, in which you also stand , 2 by which also you are saved, if you hold fast the word which I preached, unless you believed in vain. (NASB)

    The apostle Paul said the gospel saves. Paul said you have to hold fast to the gospel or you have believed in vain.

    Did Paul preach a different gospel than Jesus? No he did not.

    After Jesus was resurrected from the grave He preached the gospel plan of salvation. Mark 16:16 He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned.(NASB)

    Yes, those who deny that being immersed in water is part of the gospel plan of salvation are denying the gospel that Jesus and the apostles preached.

    There were men who believed in vain. Galatians 5:4 You have been severed from Christ, you who are seeking to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace.(NASB)

    Galatians 1:8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed!(NASB)

    The apostle Paul said those who deny that immersion in water is part of the gospel will be accursed. Church leaders today say those who pervert the gospel should be part of joint evangelistic efforts and joint good works in the community.

    Galatians 1:8 Let God's curses fall on anyone, including myself, who preaches any other way to be saved than the one we told you about; yes, if an angel comes from heaven and preaches any other message, let the be forever cursed.(The Living Bible Paraphrased)

    Paul and the apostles preached the gospel plan of salvation.
    FAITH: John 3:16
    CONFESSION: Romans 10:9
    REPENTANCE: Acts 3:19
    WATER BAPTISM: Acts 2:38

    GOSPEL IN A NUTSHELL: Mark 16:16

    Why do church leaders teach false doctrine and participate in practices condemned by the apostles.

    1. Fear of losing their positions in the church.
    2. Ignorance of Scripture.
    3. Self deception.
    4. Pride.
    5. Lack of prayerfully asking God for His truth.
    6. Peer pressure.
    7. Trusting men, Bible commentaries, and their own opinions more than they trust God and His words that are written in the Bible.
