How Men Restore Order in Society

In this episode of Real Christianity, Dale Partridge walks listeners through a lecture he presented to the men at Kings Way Church. In today's digital age, traditional gatekeepers of information have been overtaken by social media platforms, resulting in an overflow of unregulated content. This flood of information has caused widespread dissemination and contributed to a pervasive sense of confusion and institutional distrust within our culture. Confusion, in this context, is merely a symptom of lacking the right information, leading to disorder and a deficit of wisdom.

Part 2: The Paralysis of Pessimistic Eschatology

Welcome to part 2 of our discussion on The Paralysis of Pessimistic Eschatology. In this episode, we explore the fascinating realm of architecture, drawing a captivating parallel between the monumental cathedrals of the past, constructed over centuries for the greater good, and the contemporary trend of investing only a fraction of that time in building churches. Consider, for a moment, the mindset required to initiate a project that your great-great-great-grandchildren might witness completed. It's a testament to kingdom thinking and a reflection on what it means to contribute to something enduring for the greater good, beyond our immediate influence. Join us as we unravel the significance of these majestic cathedrals as pieces of architecture that communicate far beyond their physical structure.

The Paralysis of Pessimistic Eschatology

In today's episode, we embark on a series exploring the dichotomy between pessimistic eschatology and optimistic eschatology. Let's clarify that when we use the term "pessimistic eschatology," it's an academic expression rather than a judgment on individuals as pessimists. This perspective centers on the belief in a progressive moral decline, positing that the world will deteriorate morally over time. It's not an indictment of those with a negative outlook; it's an exploration of theological viewpoints. Additionally, we'll be discussing the concept of Dominion, drawing from the Genesis 1:28 Dominion mandate: "Be fruitful and multiply, fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and every living thing that moves on the earth." Join us as we navigate these nuanced topics in today's episode.

Christ in Chronic Illness Pt. 4: A Theology of Pharmaceuticals, Supplements, Diets, & Tools for Wellness

Welcome to the fourth and final installment of our podcast series, 'Christ and Chronic Illness.' In this concluding episode, we delve deeper into the profound connection between Christ, healing, and the complex reality of chronic illness. Our journey has been grounded in the understanding that God's desire for healing is not to be equated with a prosperity gospel, nor is it a guarantee of immediate relief from suffering. Rather, we've explored how God permits sickness as part of His sovereign plan in a fallen world. Looking to Christ as the ultimate reflection of God's character, we've witnessed His ministry of healing, which served as a powerful demonstration of the ultimate reversal of the Fall—a promise that He, as the Second and better Adam, will one day restore both our world and our bodies to a pre-fall, sinless, and eternal state. In this episode, we discuss the profit-driven nature of the medical system, often prioritizing pharmaceuticals as quick fixes rather than genuine health solutions. For many chronic conditions, looking beyond traditional medicine becomes essential, as it may not always provide comprehensive care.

The Cultural Obsession of Pet Idolatry

Last week, Dale released a tweet that said, “The absurd number of dog parks being built across America is telling. We have rejected children to such a degree that many cities are building more recreation sites for pets than playgrounds for kids. Namely, our culture is so selfish that it’s now shaping civics. All previous generations would see spending $225,000 of taxpayer money on pet pleasure as foolish and idiotic. But cities always follow culture, and culture always follows what they worship. When Christ isn’t seen as Lord, pet praise and childlessness are two sad consequences.” G.K. Chesterton once spoke to this relationship between pet praise and the rejection of children. He said, “Wherever there is animal worship, there is human sacrifice.” In this episode of Real Christianity, Dale explores what has happened in our culture to allow this glorification of pets to occur.

What is Marriage?

In this delightful era where a documentary titled "What is a woman?" can captivate the masses, and where global companies, politicians, presidents, and even religious leaders seem to have misplaced their understanding of basic truths regarding gender, sexuality, and family, I present to you a brief episode that aims to define the ever-elusive concept of marriage. Because clearly, the world needs a little refresher on this subject. In this episode of Real Christianity, Dale Partridge discusses how marriage is more than just a relationship, but rather is a sacred covenant between one man and one woman, established, ordained, and defined by God Himself, and, therefore cannot be redefined by man.

Three Biblical Actions to Take During 'Pride Month'

For the next thirty days, the world will be saturated with Rainbow Ramadan, and Christians will be forced to shield the eyes of their children from pride parades filled with sodomites and sexual deviants. Companies, government agencies, sports teams, and celebrities will bow down to the god of the LGBT sex religion and will expect Christians to continue to patronize their brands without resistance. So, what are Christians to do? What lessons can be learned? How can we think biblically about this season of debauchery? In this episode, Dale Partridge details three points to help you stand boldly for Christ, not violate your conscience through silence, and how to dispense Gospel truth to the gay community.

This article intends to offer maximum clarity on the content presented in those two episodes.

Should Women Teach Theology to Other Women?

Can women read their Bible? Can women study theology? Of course they can! The life of a Christian woman must be rooted and grounded in the truth of God's word. If that desire, to learn more about God's word, is not there then there is a problem. This discussion is about by what structure a woman should seek to learn more theology.

Romans 4:22-25: Two Vital Truths of the Christian Faith

We all have a faith that's equal to one another in the sense of what it can accomplish, that being salvation by grace through faith in Christ. But again, we have different measures of faith given to some have weaker faith and some have stronger faith. But because all Christians share in the same saving faith, we can expect to have the same ability by exercising that faith as Abraham did to take God at his word. And so in the same way Abraham trusted God regarding the seemingly impossible promises that were given to him in Genesis. We can trust God regarding the seemingly impossible promises that are given to us. We can trust the same way that Abraham trusted God. When God gives us the gift of saving faith, accomplished by God's good pleasure upon us, we will have such capacity to believe him and take him at his word. In this episode of Real Christianity, pastor Dale Partridge talks about two vital truths. First, how our faith is connected to the faith of Abraham, and second, how our faith hinges on the resurrection of Christ.

Romans 4:16-21: God's Unique Way To Strengthen Our Faith

Over the past several weeks, we've been discussing the great reformation doctrine of justification by faith alone. We've also seen Paul defend that doctrine from a variety of different angles. We've learned that Paul spends the first quarter of this book to the Romans proclaiming and explaining this very truth. Now, we're currently in the fourth chapter, but we're really in the third section as it pertains to theological concepts. Paul answers the question of why the covenant promises are realized strictly by faith alone. He shows how we can trust in the promises given to us because we see Abraham's trust and the promises given to him realized. Ultimately, Abraham's faith is to be an encouragement to us. In this episode of Real Christianity, pastor Dale Partridge talks about how God has given us a unique way to have stronger faith.

Romans 4:13-17: The Distinction Between Faith & Works

How should faith and works relate to one another? And if we're saved by faith, what role do works play? Our works are not the means to procuring the promise of God through Christ. Faith is. Many Christians have blurred the line between faith and works, and need to see that there are dramatic distinctions between these two things. Faith is a gift of God, and the Christian's work is something that God has prepared for us because we have been saved by faith. We must have a faith that is desirous of good works, one that says "I long to do the will of my Father because He first loved me and saved me." In this episode of Real Christianity, pastor Dale Partridge talks about the distinction between faith and works, and how we should push fellow Christians to do good works, without it becoming legalism.

Romans 4:9-12: The Purpose of the Sacraments

What's the purpose of the sacraments if they can not secure salvation? What does the Bible teach about these signs and seals? How should this cause Christians to think about baptism and the Lord's Supper? Paul offers us a comprehensive view of the gospel in the book of Romans, giving us better gospel fluency. So far, the book of Romans has shown us the universal condemnation of the law, and that all men are condemned by the law, and are only justified by faith in Christ alone. This blessing of salvation in Christ is something that occurs before any sacraments are performed. Just as Abraham was justified before he was circumcised, so too we are justified through faith which leads to obedience. We obey, not so that we will be saved, we obey because we have already been saved. We must remember that our obedience is a sign of what God is doing in and through us because He has saved us in Christ. In this episode of Real Christianity, pastor Dale Partridge walks us through how we should look at the sacraments and how this understanding should shape how we see baptism and the Lord's Supper.

Stop Working For A Free Gift

How do we view the free gift of grace that God gives us in Christ? Paul highlights the idea that those who work for their wages are not entitled to grace, but instead earn what they've earned. Romans 4:4-5 is an important reminder that salvation cannot be earned through our own efforts or adherence to the law, and shows our faith is a gift from God and that salvation is only possible through receiving the free gift of grace found only in Christ Jesus. In this episode of Real Christianity, pastor Dale Partridge walks us through what it means that our faith is counted as righteousness, as Paul explains in Romans 4:4-5 we can not work for something that is freely given as a gift.

The Difference Between Obedience and Legalism

What does the Bible teach about obedience? Is our obedience something we do in order to justify ourselves? What do we learn from Abraham about his faithfulness to God? As we continue through the book of Romans, Paul is slowly revealing to us that our works of obedience do not make us righteous before God. In Romans 4, he unpacks this by explaining that it was Abraham’s faith in God and belief in His promises that justified him. So, how does this look for us today? Since we are on the other side of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection, we are looking back at all of the promises that God has fulfilled. But, this doesn’t change the fact that our faith in God and belief in His promises is also what justifies us. The difference for us is that we now know it is the righteousness of God in Christ that we can rest in as our justification. In this episode of Real Christianity, pastor Dale Partridge walks us through the difference between obedience and legalism, as Paul explains in Romans 4:1-3 how our faith is counted to us as righteousness.

Do Christians Have to Obey the Old Testament Law?

Christians are quick to say, “Christ died for me.” But often times they forget that Christ also lived for them. Namely, Christ is not only the Cross-bearer for our sin but also the Law-keeper for our righteousness. What does this mean for Christians and the Law (the Ten Commandments)? Since the Law is fulfilled by Christ does it still have a purpose for Christians? If we’re not saved by our obedience but by faith alone, how should we think of the Moral Law? In this episode of Real Christianity, Pastor Dale Partridge answers these questions and more as he continues his teaching through Romans 3:28-31.

Romans 3:27-28: The Fallacy of Free Will

A central theme in Scripture is that man may not boast before God. Namely, humanity has no grounds for self-congratulation. 1 Corinthians 4:7 says, “What do you have that you did not receive? If then you received it, why do you boast as if you did not receive it?” Ultimately, Scripture teaches that all that we have—from our heartbeat to our faith—is a gift from God (Eph. 2:8-9). This is an essential truth to grasp as we live in a time where many Christians have wrongfully attributed the origin of their ability to“believe. Millions state that while Christ offers salvation, they must, in and of themselves, “choose to believe.” Namely, they do not understand that even their very ability to choose to believe in Christ is given to them by God. In this episode of Real Christianity, pastor Dale Partridge presents the biblical evidence of God’s sovereignty over our salvation and how even our faith is a gift of God.

Romans 3:25b-26: The Justice and Justification of God

According to the Bible, we do not have an unjust God. That is, we do not have a God who overlooks sin. Today, many Christians think that God’s mercy takes the place of God’s justice. This is untrue. God does not compromise His justice to save sinners. The Gospel teaches us that no sin will go unpunished. The penalty for man’s sin will either be laid upon the Savior or laid upon the sinner. In this episode, pastor Dale Partridge continues his journey through the book of Romans where he uncovers that justice and justification of God.

Romans 3:23-25a: The Three-Piece Plan of Salvation

Salvation is forensic. It rests upon pure justice and logic. The deeper things of God cannot be grasped without first a comprehension of the basics. The order of salvation is fundamental. Without a clear hold of this process, there is no reference point for further theological truths. In this episode, pastor Dale Partridge explains the three-part process of justification, redemption, and propitiation that lays at the foundation of our salvation.

If the Bible had a bloodline that led to the heart of its message, it would be Romans 3:20-26. Here, in these first few verses, we find the centerpiece of the Gospel—Jesus Christ. Like the sun of our solar system, the entire Bible rotates around this section of Scripture. In this episode of Real Christianity, join pastor Dale Partridge as he preaches through this essential passage and discusses the pivotal Gospel mechanics of salvation.

How to Protect Your Kids From Transgenderism with Dale and Veronica Partridge

In a world where children are surrounded by hundreds of expressions of sexual perversion, it’s imperative that Christian parents are intentional to guard the eyes and minds of their little ones. When it comes to transgenderism and homosexuality, the best defense is a good offense. Namely, Christian parents must affirm their child’s God-given gender identity. In addition, they must offer tangible and faithful examples of biblical marriage and family. In this special edition of Real Christianity, pastor Dale Partridge is joined by his wife Veronica Partridge to discuss Dale’s newest children’s book “Jesus and My Gender.”

Romans 3:19-20: Are You A Legalist?

Why do so many people in the church fall into legalism? What does the term legalist really mean? When viewing the law of God, it should drive us to a further understanding of how much Jesus Christ has paid through His sacrifice on the cross. In this episode of Real Christianity, Pastor Dale Partridge continues his exposition of Romans 3:19-20 wrapping up the final portion of Paul's denunciation of legalism. In the previous episode, Dale taught on the doctrine of Total Depravity, and how that affects our entire being and is proof of our total dependence on Christ. In this episode, we see how the law of God will hold everybody accountable on the day of judgment, and that it is only by the righteousness of Christ that we can be justified.

Ultimately, this discussion is intended to offer hope to any Christian parent concerned for the souls of their children.

Romans 3:13-18: Total Depravity: The Wickedness of Humanity

Outside of Christ, humanity is far more wicked than we know. If the heart and soul of a person is unregenerate, because their soul is separated from the source of life, which is God, then only death will flow out of them. When a person is alive in Christ, life will flow out of them. In this episode of Real Christianity, Pastor Dale Partridge continues his exposition of Romans 3:9–18 in an effort to uncover the doctrine of Total Depravity. In the previous episode, Dale taught on the depravity of the mind, the ears, and the eyes of man. In this episode, we see how that depravity also saturates the body and the actions of man. Namely, we will see how depravity is total in its nature.

Romans 3:9-12: Total Depravity: Why No Man Can Come To God

Self-love is blinding. Namely, it’s difficult for man to see his flaws when his view of himself is so lofty. The Bible solves this dilemma by offering a pure and precise view of man—including his fallenness and flaws. According to Scripture, man’s central flaw is his spiritual deadness. A state of the soul that is not righteous, cannot comprehend the Gospel and does not seek for God. It’s a confirmation that no man can come to God without divine assistance. In this episode of Real Christianity, pastor Dale Partridge expounds on this biblical concept as he teaches through Romans 3:9-12.

Join pastor Dale Partridge as he exposits the meaning of this passage in this episode of Real Christianity.
