Daniel French and Brandon LeTourneau host a weekly show on the basics of faithful Christianity alongside the hot button topics of the day. Expect lots on how we resist the emerging "brave new world" and remain true to Jesus, the Bible, the creeds and become ark builders in a time of cancel culture.
Each of us is the Problem
9:55Rev Daniel explores the core idea of Christianity that the problems of the world run through each of us, that we share responsibility and are never immune from the troubles and sins of the world. The System may be bad but unless we sincerely examine our hearts and repent we will never know the Kingdom of God.
Worry More About the Eye of God than Surveillance Systems
11:57Rev Daniel French continues his series Awake for Lent with episode 4, where he reflects that though it is right to be worried about the power of survelliance today the Christian should be more focused on the Divine survelliance. It is the gaze of God upon each of us which should concern us. For all our faults God sees us as gloriously made, where as the System sees as a product or a number on a spreadsheet.
The System Isn't Broken
12:39Rev Daniel French continues his series 'Awake Lent' with episode 3 looking at how the choice has always been between the System or the Kingdom of God. We might give the System all sorts of titles and names, but its the same thing that belittles us and reduces our humanity.
Only Christianity stands in the way of the Brave New World
9:54Rev Daniel French continues on his series, Awake to Lent. In this short talk he argues that to combat the new world order before us we are going to have to re-learn the old ways of inhabiting the Christian faith. Many are now seeing that only Christianity stands in the way of a Brave New World. To understand why this is the case we need to go back to the basics of the faith and why Jesus came to save us.
Awake for Lent - Introduction
7:58If Christianity is no longer tolerated in the West how can Christians become more resilent? In this short introduction Father Daniel French introduces a new series for Catecomb FM relevant to Lent. He begins by asking how much are we ready to suffer and sacrifice for our faith?
Podcast - Why bother with Church
1:13:51Brandon is back with Rev Daniel to discuss a common question, "Why should I bother with church?" Here we are minded that a lot of people are writing in to us and the Irreverend podcasters to with a reawakening to the Christian faith BUT are shy of belonging to a church.
Wars and Rumours of Wars - A Sermon on Matthew 24. 4-14
25:15Rev Daniel French reflects on part of the apocalyptic discourse of Christ in Matthew 24. 4-14, "wars and rumours of wars." This short talk is also a summary of the the first Lent talk that Daniel gave last Thursday. The podcast is going out also on the Irrreverend podcast. How can raise Christians resilient to this difficult age?
The weird world of demons
1:34:21Whereas most of human history believed in demons, devils, and evil spirits, people nowadays tend see this is goofy and unmodern. However, recently there's been a change in the air and old beliefs are coming back. Rev Daniel and Brandon explore this with special reference to the temptation in the wilderness which is the Gospel reading for the first Sunday of Lent (Luke 4. 1-13)
