The Recreated Podcast

Shane Callicutt

Among other things, we discuss Biblical issues from the audacious point of view that Christians are new creations in Jesus Christ - recreated in Him.

All Episodes

How should a person study the Bible? It's a common question that has been answered a thousand ways. In this episode, we'll look at two very broad approaches: systematic and biblical theologies.

In the seventh and final installment of this series, we'll talk about the core identity issue of being a saint and not a sinner. You were a sinner saved by grace, now you are a saint who still sins. The identity you walk in will either produce life or death.

This is the sixth episode of our series, Seven Transforming Beliefs. Jesus made it super clear that all of his followers were to be servants. Why do we wrestle so much with serving, and how do expectations of being served affect us?

This is our first listener questions episode! I received some questions from my friend John about what it's like being an elder and what makes for a healthy elder. That's our topic for today. Hope you enjoy it.

Son, not slave is one of the most important truths that has transformed my walk with the LORD. They're both true, but they're not the same, and if they get out of order, things can get sketchy. What's the difference, and why is it so important to get this straight in our heads? That's what we're answering.   I referenced this article about the mark of the beast in the episode.  https://shaneshack.com/blog/2020/04/25/the-mark-of-the-beast

Kingdom citizenship doesn't get a lot of airtime in sermons, but it is one of the most transforming realities that a Christian can embrace. It can and does transform us every day if we understand how it affects every decision we make.

The LORD has not left us to fend for ourselves. He has sent us His help through the Holy Spirit. Yet, many Christians live largely untransformed lives. In this episode, we'll begin unpacking the ministry of the Spirit, and how He is the one who brings transformation.

The Gospel does more than save us. It empowers us to grow and live a life that pleases the LORD in the here and now. It's more than the facts that led you to salvation. It's the good news that keeps transforming you all along the journey.

Kingdom authority in the church is derived the same way it is in the family: through loving service. This episode will focus on how we identify leaders (elders, pastors, deacons, etc.) within the church based upon the way Kingdom authority works.

What does Kingdom authority look like in a family? How does loving service change the dynamics between husbands, wives, and children? This will be a deeper dive into how authority should work within families.

An issue that doesn't get much airtime in many churches is authority. What does Kingdom authority look like? How do we walk in it? We spend more time talking about it than defining it. That's what we're doing in this episode. We're defining Kingdom authority.

Season 2: Episode 4 - In this episode, we're taking on the sin of racism. Specifically, we're going to define racism and racial prejudice, reveal the cause, and prescribe the cure. Sounds ambitious, right? It wouldn't be challenging if it wasn't ambitious. But when you start looking at what the Bible says about racism, the worldly remedies get revealed as the mirages that they truly are. NOTE: I'd like to say that I planned on this episode dropping during Black History Month, but I didn't actually realize it until I had finished production and was uploading it to the internet. It's a wonderful coincidence, and I'm glad it worked out that way, but I cannot take credit for it. Links to resources: Definition of mythos: https://www.lexico.com/en/definition/mythos The definition of racism I cite in the episode is the second provided by lexico.com. In the dictionary entry, the first definition states, prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against a person or people on the basis of their membership in a particular racial or ethnic group, typically one that is a minority or marginalized. It is my belief that the first definition is a list of behaviors that are derived from racism. Also, this essay will deal with the issue of racial prejudice distinctly. https://www.lexico.com/en/definition/racism Literacy rates in 1776: https://readcenter.org/literacy-rates-improved-since-1776/ Definition of prejudice: https://www.lexico.com/en/definition/prejudice

In this bonus episode, we'll examine why the government is a false hope. This content is primarily from a chapter in my upcoming and yet unfinished book, unBelief. It's a timely subject. I don't remember a time when more believers have no idea how to respond to the government. Hopefully, this episode will help point us in the right direction.

Season 2: Episode 3 - In this episode, we'll tackle the issue of prophecy, but not the end-times kind. Has anyone ever approached you and said that God gave them a word for you? If so, and if that kind of irked you, this episode is for you. How does the prophetic gift operate in today's church, and how should we respond to it?

Season 2: Episode 2 - In this episode, we'll tackle something we actually can never fully demystify: the Trinity. It's ambitious, and I'm unequal to the task, but I hope to show you that the Bible actually does teach that God is three-in-one, and connect a few Scripture dots for you on this subject.

Episode 1: We've been taught forever that Christianity is one of the big three monotheistic faiths on the planet. But are we? Does Christianity fit the dictionary definition of monotheism? We're jumping straight into this riveting topic and making it interesting while we're at it. Here are some links to resources that I referenced in this episode. Religious affiliations also include unaffiliated individuals – atheists, agnostics, and people who didn’t identify with any group at all. See https://www.pewforum.org/2017/04/05/the-changing-global-religious-landscape/ https://jewsforjesus.org/publications/issues/issues-v01-n08/jewishness-and-the-trinity/ https://www.crescentproject.org/articles-blog/2017/1/3/the-tricky-trinity Some translations of Deuteronomy 32:8 say, sons of Israel, but Michael Heiser’s, Unseen Realm, p. 113, reveals that the Dead Sea Scrolls contain the correct translation, sons of God. https://amzn.to/3qmj4sX
