What do I do with the shame that I carry?

What do I do with the shame that I carry?

In this week’s episode, Cameron and Dr. J tackle a few of the most commonly asked questions in the church before turning their attention to the things we carry. The truth is that there are things weighing us down that the Lord desires to free us from. Then, in a departure from their normal Q&A time, Cameron and Dr. J turn to Scripture and take an extended look at who we are in Christ.

02:10 — What does the Bible say about tithing? Is it only for the Old Testament?

04:21 — What exactly happens after we die?

07:12 — I’ve made some mistakes. I believe that God forgives me, but I’m not sure others forgive me. I’m not sure if I forgive me.. What am I to do with the shame I carry?

09:08 — Is there a way to minimize our shame without sweeping the things we have done under the rug?

10:26 — Is there a difference between being ashamed of what I’ve done and living a life of shame?

14:18 — How do we change what is defining our identity?

15:40 — Who does God say that I am?

22:29 — How are we to treat those who are sinning (and sinning against us)?

24:30 — How do we address the sin in someone’s life without bringing more shame to them?
