Season 1 The Whole Counsel

Season 1 The Whole Counsel

23 Episodes

In this series, Roberts introduces the book (Salvation in Full Colour) by pointing to the character of God, which frames the way we view salvation. He walks through four points: God, self, sin, and salvation. If God is as He describes Himself to be, then what must we be? Only a proper view of God can help us to see ourselves, our sin, and the beauty of salvation as they really are.

The Whole Counsel is a weekly podcast about who God is and how to live in light of Him. Dr. John Snyder, of Christ Church New Albany and author of the Behold Your God study series, and Chuck Baggett, co-pastor of Christ Church New Albany, discuss the realities of God and how we are to worship, learn, and live in light of who God is. They often use writers and authors of the past for help.
