Episode 190- The Empowered Woman vs Her Husband

In this episode we discuss the dynamics of a marriage where the woman is empowered. More and more women are making their mark in their chosen professions. The empowered women has rightly been celebrated, however, does this mean her chances of enjoying a good marriage are slimmer? There are many "traditionalists" who attribute domestic conflict and the widespread breakdown of marriages to women empowerment. Is this really the case? Can a woman have both a happy union and a successful career? How should married couples navigate their relationship and family life if both spouses are working?How does that dynamic work when it comes to the Christian family and requirements of submission. We will discuss these questions and more during this episode Radiant Culture

Episode 160- Faith Vs Reality

At times as Christians we often struggle to believe or hold on to what the word of God says when the reality on the ground seems to be other wise. How do you apply faith in difficult situations? It seems like sometimes as Christians we are often acceptors of reality rather than changers of reality through our faith. Peter when Jesus was walking on water towards the boat he asked Jesus , if it was him to call him so he can walk on water too, and Jesus called him to come and he walked briefly on water until he faced the reality of the wind and the storm and he doubted and began to sink. Jesus attributes his sinking to a lack of faith. How do we build our faith such that we are those who walk by faith and not by sight in a world that throws everything at us? It’s easier said than done, but still possible because we are called to be those who live by faith. Have a listen and join the conversation... Radiant Culture

When we first become believers and followers of Jesus we have such a passion for the the things of God and a hunger to grow spiritually.

That means consistently seeking to grow in our Faith moving from milk (elementary principles of faith) to meat (Substance and spiritual maturity).

Faith is central to the Gospel, so crucial yet seems like a very difficult thing to grasp, possess or keep. how do you practically grow in Faith? The bible encourages us to live by faith not by sight, what does this mean on a practical level? There's also a thin line between faith and foolishness, and the word calls us to be prudent and wise. How do we differentiate living by faith and foolishness. When should we exercise faith in the supernatural, and when do we just need to be practical?

PODCAST EP137- Sexual Abuse and Manipulation in the Church

In this episode we discuss sexual abuse and spiritual manipulation in the church. Spiritual manipulation is a technique used by abusive churches and leaders to control individuals and acquire personal gain. There are religious leaders who take Scriptures out of context to support their agenda. They isolate “proof texts” and “cherry pick” and dissect verses to persuade the uninformed that their interpretation is right, even to the extent of claiming they alone have “the truth” and everybody else is wrong. This creates an environment ripe for abuses to take place. Unfortunately instances of molestation in the church, across all denominations are far too many. Leaders abuse their authority for sexual gain. Often victims have been brainwashed and groomed or for various reasons feel that they stand to lose too much by coming forward. How can a victim go about seeking justice and freedom from such a situation? What is the process of healing and restoration when a place or person meant to protect you like a shepherd abuses you? How can we as congregants be more aware that there is spiritual manipulation taking place? Is the answer always to leave, knowing that abuses may continue? Why has the church been marred by this issue for centuries?Have a listen... Radiant Culture

Old vs New Testament: Tithes and First Fruits part 2

We continue the discussion with Pastor Craig Ndoro and Pastor Sean Mullens from part 1. Does the New testament nullify or bring to an end some of the old Testament practices such as giving of the tithes and first fruits? Has God’s expectation with regards to giving changed? Malachi presents some very serious consequences for not giving and very attractive blessings for those who give their tithes and offerings, does this still apply? Also what is the difference between giving and sowing? Are they the same? Giving implies generosity whereas sowing implies an investment, yet we receive something out of both i.e. Give and it shall be given back to you (Luke 6:38) and you reap what you sow (Galatians 6:7, 1 Corinth 9:11)?

Old vs New Testament: Does the law of Tithes and First Fruits still apply today?

In this episode we discuss giving Tithes and First Fruits with Pastor Craig Ndoro and Pastor Sean Mullens as we begin a series of episodes on Old vs New Testament. Are there practices in the Old Testament that do not apply in the New Testament? In this episode we focus on Giving Tithes and offerings. Giving is highly encouraged in the NT and the OT however with a different emphasis. The OT seems to imply that giving generously to the poor was over and above the required giving of the tithes and first fruits etc. whereas in the NT, giving to the poor seems to be the core focus. Does the NT nullify or bring an end to the way of giving taught in the OT, i.e is the systematic giving of tithes and offerings still required? We know that the sin and guilt offerings were abolished by the work of the cross, what about tithes, free will offerings, first fruits, are these still required? There is hardly any instruction on tithes and first fruits in the NT, does this mean these are no longer required and replaced with giving towards the work of the Gospel and giving to the poor?

Analysing prophecies on the nation of Zimbabwe

In this episode we will be looking at some of the prophetic words that have been spoken on Zimbabwe e.g. The Cindy Jacobs Guatemala prophecy on Zimbabwe 1998, which Steve Blomefield countered, arguing that it was not an accurate prophecy as it contradicted the Prophecy he gave in 1997 (a year prior). We discuss how we can evaluate whether a prophetic word is True or Not. Steve Blomefield's 1997 prophecy on Zimbabwe seems to have been fulfilled, does this then necessarily make Cindy Jacobs one innacurate? What value do these prophecies bring to the believer’s own life and the church as a whole? Should the ordinary believer even pay attention to these prophetic words? We also discuss how we should react to these and other prophetic words, esp. the ones that are prophesying doom and destruction. Have a listen and join the conversation. Radiant Culture

Do we need faith only or works matter as well?

In this episode we sit down with pastor Craig Ndoro as we discuss "Faith and Works". The bible says faith without works is dead. But there's also the guy who hung on the cross next to Jesus who entered paradise, but he didn't necessarily have a lifetime of works. He just had one moment with the Savior and that was enough. We learn from the bible that it is by grace we are saved and not works so no one can boast. However, the same bible tells us that each one will be rewarded according to his/her works (Revelation 2:23). How important are these works to God and what are works anyway? What can be considered works? Just being a goodie, being kind and generous? Or its more feeding orphans and widows; evangelising and serving in church.

#AngelAndDemons Part II

Its the 2nd part of the previous episode and we continue discussing the spiritual realm with Shingai Kuwaza to get a better understanding of “this spiritual world” from a biblical perspective. We explored Angels in part I and in this part we explore demons in greater detail. Do demons exist? What are they like? What are their powers? How can one tell that they are demon possesed or they just have issues. When they say someone has a spirit of something what does it mean. Lastly what about Ghosts? Spooky I know! but have a listen and get a better understanding of the spiritual world and know how to deal with it when you need to. Radiant Culture

The Prosperity Gospel

In this Episode we are joined by Bishop Albert Chikuni as we discuss a very hot topic "The Prosperity Gospel". Is prosperity really part of the Gospel message that Jesus taught or is it a seperate gospel altogether. Should Christians be seeking to be prosperous here on earth or should we be more concerned about the prosperity waiting for us in heaven as is written in Matthew 6:19 to not store your treasure here on earth... If not, why is there so much emphasis by most preachers on earthly prosperity? Also Is prosperity dependant on sowing seed to a "Man of God" Radiant Culture

Christian life in the "Selfie Era" Part II

Its part II of the previous epsiode and we continue the discussion on Social Media and its role in a christians life. We focus more on "selfies", what is the intention and dont we run the risk of projecting a false impression of who we really are to the public, thereby being hypocrites instead of "the Light of the world". We still have our guests from the lasy episode, Chido and Tashinga. Radiant Culture

Christian life in the "Selfie Era"

In this episode we discuss the role of social media in a christian's life, what's the good, what's the bad and what sets us apart from the world in today's selfie generation. We are joined by two amazing young people as our guests, Chido and Tashinga. Most people on social media are seeking to gain popularity, approval and show off their latest acqisitions (or borrowings for some, lol). Should this be the same for christians? Is the selfie culture suitable for the kingdom, can it really be part of the kingdom culture? #IAmBlessed show off pics. Also how effective can evangelism be on social media? How can Christians effectively be the light on Social media without seeming vain, self centred or "worldly"? #ForwardThisIfYouLoveJesus Radiant Culture

Trendy & Modest fashion: Where do christians draw the line?

In this episode we have a chat with Valerie Chingonzo (World title winning model) and Belinda Chaora (fashion entrepreneur) about fashion and if it's possible for christians to balance being trendy and being modest as paul advises in 1 Timothy 2:9. Should christians even be thinking about being fashionable? Does God really care about how we dress or is he just after the heart? On one extreme you have christians who lose their fashion sense altogether when they become christians and on the other you have those who go overboard with their dressing in the name of dressing up for Jesus. Does focusing on Jesus mean we lose our desire to look good and fashionable? Have a listen to this very interesting discussion. Radiant Culture
