This week the girls discuss false piety, what it is, what it isn’t, and how it might be something you’re guilty of accidentally-on-purpose. Are you flattening the category of “being holy” simply to “being kind”? Do you approach situations thinking you see them more clearly than anyone else? Do you think it is your job to bring conviction only the Holy Spirit can bring? Then they do some voicemail shout-outs, answer a call-in question, and end with the BEST VOICEMAIL YOU HAVE EVER HEARD.

    I literally am 6 minutes into the first episode of this show that I have ever listened to, and I’m trying to figure out why we aren’t best friends.

      Wait, we aren’t best friends?!?!?!

    Sorry, Gals, I’m working my way backwards and have just gotten to this one. I am really enjoying your show. We have some disagreements but when they’re doctrinal, I understand and I’ll just let it go. When they’re biblical, I thought I’d write to you. I disagree with you in that I think we can let people know what is right or wrong without making them feel stupid. I don’t think making someone feel stupid is what God wants us to do. We definitely need to share the truth with them but it needs to be done in a kind and gentle way. “2 Timothy 2:24-26 (ESV) 24 And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, 25 correcting his opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth, 26 and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will.” I don’t think we’ll ever win someone to our side by making them feel stupid. I have a Liberal family member in my life who makes me feel stupid when something is discussed from a Christian or Conservative viewpoint, and I hate it! Hopefully he’s doing it in a different way then you would because I can’t imagine you ever making someone feel that way. Even acting angry with them isn’t right since God says in James 1:20 (NASB) “…for the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God.” Thanks for reading my comment. Have a great rest of your weekend.

      I’m confused. When did we say making people feel stupid is our goal?

    Hi there ladies! Glad I stumbled across your podcast, I do not have social media accounts but went down the rabbit trail on Twitter from Wretched Radio, to James White who had reposted one of your podcast announcements for tomorrow.

    Listening to discussion of false piety was really informative. I personally did not take the portion of the podcast discussing false piety and addressing it as foolishness equates making that person feel stupid. Whether they are convicted and feel a certain way is by their choice. It is also a persons decision to interject in a conversation or debate halfheartedly, lacking knowledge and discernment. We are to respond in meekness (power under control – a fruit in which the Holy Spirit CONTINUES to refine in me). If a fellow believer interjects in an argument that is not substantiated and is foolishness, are we not able to voice and correct? We can address these things in love, loving that person enough to provide the truth, not wrapping the truth in insecurity and timidness. The Holy Spirit empowers us with a soundness of mind. Discerning situations and when to engage situations those persons is key .

    I ask for prayer for this discernment, I have addressed a foolish person according to their folly – that was stupid :). Proverbs 26:4-5. However, I can address persons’ sin biblically, in dignity with love. If I want to address their sin when I am emotional (in anger, frustration) that is not a biblical approach and I need to take more time and review my intentions before responding; taking it to God in prayer. I have also responded in anger and that was also stupid.

    Thank you ladies for the discussion and I look forward to listening to more.
