Reverend Joel Beeke joins us today to talk piety and backsliding. Joel has faithfully pastored for 37 years having served 29 of them at Heritage Reformed church in Grand Rapids, is President of Puritan Reformed Seminary, and has authored numerous books on the puritan writings. So why read the Puritans? Joel's answers are convicting! If you don't own any John Owen books, you will want to by the end of this show. The hosts also ask about cultivating holiness: What does it look like? How do we avoid mediocrity in your faith? And what about backsliding… how do you know you're inching back into the world? Backsliding is something none of us are immune to, so give heed to Joel's wise words and encouragements.
