“God, Help!”

What kind of events were happening during the time King David wrote songs that led him to write so many verses about “protect me from my enemies” (like in Psalm 35)?

If you read the Bible then you probably have Bible questions. And we’ve got answers. Rather, Dr. Jeremy does.

Dr. Jeremy Grinnell earned his Ph.D. in Systematic Theology from Calvin Seminary in Grand Rapids, MI, and taught theology at seminary for nearly 15 years. Here are the questions he takes on in this episode.  

Why did Jesus say to the thief on the cross that "today" he would be with him if Jesus wasn't going straight to heaven that day?

Does forbidding touching dead bodies refer to just people or does it include animals? (Referring to Samson).

Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to the disciples at Pentecost. Was the Holy Spirit available/present in the Old testament as He is now?

What does it mean to put on the armor of God? Seems to be something either crazy important or another Christian fad that we lift out of context like Jeremiah 29:11.

Assuming its importance, how do we put on the armor and keep it on throughout the day?

How about annihilation? The chaff will be burned up. The sticks go in the fire, turn to ashes and are no more. Eternal punishment seems like the punishment doesn't fit the crime.

And last, can fallen angels be forgiven and redeemed?

Perry LaHaie

Perry LaHaie's passion is to know Jesus and make Him known. “I’m all in with Jesus but not all put together. I need Jesus right now as much as I did when I first started following Him!” Perry says. In addition to co-hosting Perry and Shawna Mornings, Perry is a singer, songwriter, recording artist, and advocate for those who haven’t yet heard the gospel, especially those in the Muslim world. Born and raised in northern Michigan, he earned a bachelor’s degree in Communications and a graduate degree in Cross- cultural Communications. Perry also serves with Frontiers, a worldwide ministry to Muslims. Perry and his bride, Teresa, call Holland, Michigan home. They have two adult children, Kali and Taylor, and Taylor’s bride, Bri.


Shawna Beyer

Shawna Beyer has a way of telling stories that create personal connection— to her, to one another, and to God. She has been a homeschool mom, church planter, project lead for a consulting company, and church staff member. Though she’s been involved in ministry with her husband (Dan) in Iowa, Arizona, and now Michigan, she was born and raised in Southern California and as they say, “You can take the girl out of California . . .” She is mom to four grown kids (Bryn, Drayson, Eden, and Haven) who no longer need her but humor her anyway. Shawna is passionate about the rhythms we weave into the fabric of our lives to fall more in love with God each day. Healthy foods are her go-to, but she will abandon that whole track in a heartbeat for a homemade cinnamon roll like Grandma used to make.
