So Paul tells Timothy that the church shouldn't help some people? It's true, and there's a good reason.

Continuing with Conversations in the Sauna, Levi explains that there is a role for the church in helping people in need, but we mustn't replace the family.

The Scripture text for today is 1 Timothy 5:1-16. This is a podcast of Evangel Baptist Church, Houghton, Michigan, on August 13, 2017.

When God calls you into something that's bigger than you, he's calling you into something that you cannot do alone. It's a natural reaction to be timid and scared. This is where Paul finds Timothy in his first letter to him.

Continuing with Conversations in the Sauna, Levi explains the hard part of pastoring in Paul's encouragement to Timothy to serve and persevere. God uses young people to do amazing things.

The Scripture text for today is 1 Timothy 4:11-16. This is a podcast of Evangel Baptist Church, Houghton, Michigan, on August 6, 2017.

Have you ever met one of those holy weird dudes whose mind is so set on heavenly things that he does no earthly good?

Legalism begins with a noble intention to set oneself apart from the world, but we must keep the church about Christ.

Continuing with Conversations in the Sauna, Levi challenges us to adhere to sound doctrine, but do so with humility. Rules are useful, but godliness requires God.

The Scripture text for today is 1 Timothy 4:1-10. This is a podcast of Evangel Baptist Church, Houghton, Michigan, on July 23, 2017.

One of the most effective changes made to the church to help the spread of the gospel was organizing the administration of it.

Continuing with Conversations in the Sauna, Nate Marsh starts with a bit of "heresy" by saying the sauna is not as wonderful as we all know it is. But we can forgive him of that, because his teaching on the Word is solid. He talks about the position of deacons and the importance of organizing the administration of the church.

The Scripture text for today is 1 Timothy 3:8-16. This is a podcast of Evangel Baptist Church, Houghton, Michigan, on July 16, 2017.

With 2000 years of church history and now thousands of denominations with so many titles and positions for various people in the church, it's not always clear how to apply otherwise straightforward Scripture such as "Qualifications of Overseers."

The Scripture text for today is 1 Timothy 3:1-7. This is a podcast of Evangel Baptist Church, Houghton, Michigan, on July 9, 2017.

Do you find praying for Trump hard? Was it hard to pray for Obama? Well, try praying for Nero, the psychopathic Roman Emperor who tortured Christians.

Family interventions might seem harsh, but they are one of the most loving things that can be done to someone who is caught up in addiction.

Paul's letter to Timothy includes an intervention of sort, naming names of those he turned over to Satan.

Conversations in the Sauna: Law and Gospel

Great conversations are 2 parts individual comfort, 3 parts common ground, 2 parts equality, and 1 part skill.

And great conversations happen in the sauna because people are relaxed taking part in an activity where they have common ground. And in a traditional Finnish sauna, the — a-hem — "attire" is a great equalizer.

The conversations tend to be deep. And they get right to the point, since there's typically only a fifteen minute window until you need a breather.

Well, this summer will be talking about 1 Timothy, which are letters Paul wrote to his son in Christ. No, they were not conversations in the sauna, but one can totally see how those conversations might've taken place in the sauna.

Pastor Levi kicks off the sermon series Conversations in the Sauna with a discussion on Law & Gospel from 1 Timothy 1:1-11.

This is a podcast of Evangel Baptist Church, Houghton, Michigan, on June 11, 2017.
