A podcast designed for women comparing the popular American Evangelical Women's Ministry books, videos, podcast, etc. to Scripture with the intent to show how Scripture thoroughly equips them for every good work (2Tim. 3:16-17).

Ep.11- Two Opposing Doctrines: Purpose-Driven/Dream Doctrine vs Good Works and Our Vocations

I take the time to compare 2 teachings- The teachings that we were created to accomplish a purpose or dream verses the teachings that we were created in Christ Jesus for good works prepared beforehand that we should walk in. We also tackle: What are good works? What makes a work good? What is the doctrine of vocation? And what are some of the issues with the purpose-driven/dream doctrines?
