Urban Apologetics
2306
As it is in any culture, there are unique belief systems that spring up in response to the distinct experiences of people within a community. Oppression and/or racism in America and in the church has led to the formation of cults and black religious groups such as Hebrew Israelites, Moorish Temple of Science, and the Nation of Islam. What is central to each of these groups is a disdain for the Christian faith and its Christocentric teachings. Eric Mason, the editor of 'Urban Apologetics: Restoring Black Dignity with the Gospel' joins Jackie and Preston to offer wisdom on how the church can equip itself to answer the questions that these growing religious groups are asking.

Cancel Culture
1670
Cancel culture is kind of a "thing" nowadays but should it be? Especially among Christians, the public shaming of certain individuals and groups may or may not be necessary but how do we determine when "canceling" someone is the righteous thing to do? Jackie and Preston will discuss the topic among themselves to see if they can come to some kind of conclusion on the matter. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

Jesus and Therapy
2113
The concept of Christians getting therapy shouldn't be a big deal but for some, it is.

What if it's a means to help all people heal mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Listen as Jackie and Preston discuss their own experiences with therapy and why they believe every Christian should get some. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

The Idolatry of Marriage

Sexuality & Self Denial: Our thoughts on Jackie's chat w/KevOnStage
2413
About a month ago, Jackie conversed with KevOnStage about sexuality and not surprisingly, it was met with a lot of controversy. One aspect of it that seems to be the most alarming was Jackie's statements on self-denial. On this episode of 30 Minutes w/The Perrys, Preston and Jackie dig more into the concept of sexuality and self-denial and the reasons why it's typically not welcomed with opened arms.

Embracing Conflict
2536

In this podcast, Preston and Jackie talk through their different styles of embracing conflict and how they've learned and are learning to see that as Christians, conflict really can be a good thing. www.withtheperrys.com www.prestonnperry.net www.jackiehillperry.com Book Recommendation: Relationships: A Mess Worth Making https://www.amazon.com/Relationships-Making-Tim-S-Lane/dp/0977080765 Learn more about your ad choices.

Gender Identity, Biblical Womanhood, & Girly Girls
1654
Jackie never considered herself a "Girly Girl" or whatever that means. She, like many women, found themselves being labeled a "TomBoy" or "Masculine" because she didn't wear purses and the like. These words were spoken by people who never had a biblical framework for how to understand gender in the first place. Situations such as these have clearly led to much confusion in the church and in the culture about what it means to be male and female in this world. Listen in as Preston and Jackie chat about it.

When Your Man is Intimidated by Your Gifts
2200
Giftedness and the success that can accompany it isn't gendered. Both men and women have the capacity to do great things with the gifts God has given them. But for some women, this comes with a hefty price. Their gifts, talents, and abilities can tend to intimidate the men in their lives. On this episode, Preston and Jackie have a conversation about why that's a thing and what couples can do individually to love and support each other above it all. www.withtheperrys.com Learn more about your ad choices.

How To Argue Well
2193
Who doesn't get into an argument with their significant other every now and then? Over unwashed dishes, a irritating tone of voice, bad breath, the assumption of disrespect, leaving the fridge open, and texting while a partner is talking, couples will argue over any and everything. Arguments aren't necessarily a bad thing though. They can be helpful in identifying issues in the relationship that need to be addressed but we have to learn how do it well first. How we communicate during conflict will determine if it will end in unity or in division.

When you're afraid to talk about Jesus
1834
Talking about Jesus to other people can be scary, weird, and flat out awkward, so how is it that some people seem to do it so fearlessly while others are too afraid to do it at all? Preston and Jackie have two different personalities and therefore two different approaches to evangelism but over time, they've learned how to be bold, the best way that they know how.    www.withtheperrys.com www.prestonnperry.com www.jackiehillperry.com Learn more about your ad choices.

Toxic Friendships
2164
So the term "toxic friendship" is a thing apparently. It's become a common theme behind social media memes and Instagram captions. It's often referenced as the reason certain friendships must end or why other friendships are considered exhausting. Preston and Jackie take on the idea of toxic friendships by trying to examine if it's biblical at all while fleshing out what it might look like to love our difficult or should we say "toxic" friends.  Learn more about your ad choices.
