Just three guys who like to talk about Music, Media and the Mission of Jesus. Every week Zak, Collin and Bob talk about all things having to do with life as people who are house-plants in the house of God (Psalm 92).


Many claim that the Bible is full of contradictions, but is this true? Is scripture consistent with itself? This is a question that affects how you view the Bible and ultimately how you view God. And if scripture is consistent, then how do we handle things that seem contradictory on first look. We tackle these questions and more…

Does God have a reason for his rules? Does he just want to boss us around, or can sins actually hurt? Why would some things break the heart of God? Ken Southgate joins us as we wrestle with why things are sins, or as we like to ask, "Why are sins?"

In our “Song’s Speak” episodes we each pick one of our favorite songs in a certain category and talk about them. This week we are covering songs that you don’t hear in congregational worship, but still say something about God and/or Christianity. You might say “Christian Rock” (or Prog in Collin’s case). Check out these great songs and what we have to say about them!

We talk about Signs (2002) Dir. by M. Night Shyamalan for some reason... Actually we think the movie has a lot of theological significance. It's not really a story about aliens but more a story about faith and doubt. Hang with us as we find God in "Signs"

Today we attempt our second episode covering an influential theologian. In the spirit of going “back to basics” we’re talking about Athanasius. He was at the Council of Nicaea and spent much of his ministry being persecuted. Yet he wrote some really central works on the trinity and other core doctrines of Christianity. Oh yeah and there was no Bob to reign us in for this episode…

Zak and Collin write and arrange a lot of music. Today we will discuss the process we go through when writing music. We hope there might be a few music writers listening who can use this info to help them. Zak and Collin have different approaches, so this episode we will talk about where inspiration comes from and how we begin to put a song together. This is…. Our process...

This Week Collin Shares and we wrap up our series Perfect in Weakness


Gal 1 10 For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.


1 Thes 2 :3 For our appeal does not spring from error or impurity or any attempt to deceive, 4 but just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak, not to please man, but to please God who tests our hearts. 5 For we never came with words of flattery, as you know, nor with a pretext for greed—God is witness.
