LISTEN TO EPISODE 00
“Welcome to a world free…”
This is it! The very first look into A World Free: The pureHOPE Podcast. We can’t wait to tell you where we’re going as we take these incredible truths we’ve been stewarding and sharing across the globe for generations, and begin to share them with you, right where you are through this amazing medium. (Spoiler alert: We’re going there!) We’ll be talking about all kinds of “awkward” subjects that—guess what?—don’t need to be awkward! Namely, we’ll be talking about sex… a lot. Because God talks about it a lot. So let’s jump in!
LIVING IN THE LOOP
Purity is not a state of being, but a state of becoming. Jesus is purifying us, and as as we hope in Him we purify ourselves. The pure life is marked by prayer, understanding, resolve, and engagement. P-U-R-E. Instead of a vicious cycle of sin and shame, this is a virtuous one, spurring us on to closer intimacy, increased discernment, stronger commitment, and deepening love for God and others. With each episode we will point you to ways you can…
PRAY | Pray with us for this podcast to start and spark ongoing conversation—first with God and then with spouses, friends, roommates, kids, neighbors, disciples.
RESOLVE | Keep coming back to listen in and join us in pursuing a world free of sexual exploitation and brokenness!
ENGAGE | Let’s start some much needed conversations! Share this podcast with a friend who needs to hear it, and leave a review so more people can see it.
YOU MIGHT HAVE HEARD US MENTION…
If we mention any particular resources, ministries, articles, or ideas, we will list and link them here! For now, feel free to check out any of our resources.
GOD HAS THE BEST STORY
The best thing we can do is point you to His Word. The conversations we have on the show are simply a start. We’re barely scratching the surface. Also, we’re fallible. God is not, and He has so much more to say! We’ll list verses for you to meditate on with each episode—some will be quoted directly in our conversations, some are just good and pair nicely with the particular episode. Even this short preview reminds us of some powerful truth…
1 John 3:1; 1 Thessalonians 5:11; 1 Corinthians 6:16-17; Matthew 19:4; Matthew 22:37; Genesis 1:27; 2 Peter 3:13; Psalm 40:2; 1 Peter 1:3
There are some pretty special people who have helped us launch this podcast, particularly our amazing pureHOPE community, family, friends, and the passionate donors who have invested in this mission with their prayers, hearts, and finances. Thank you!
To all of our Justice Alumni, your discipleship experience has graduated into this podcast! We’re so thankful for each of you and hope A World Free will be a blessing to you!
If you’re looking at the design and logo with awe and admiration, that’s all Dave Dawkins who also helped inspire a lot of our thinking around this podcast. He loathes public credit, but very much deserves it!
For those of you listening and wondering where that unbelievable intro/outro music is coming from, that would be Tony Anderson, friend of our ministry, visionary behind The Heart of Man film we helped produce, and brilliant sonic architect.
And finally, Mark Friedman, our production allstar! Mark is such an example of someone who is pursuing a world free right where he is! He uses his gifts, talents, and skills to further Kingdom work. We are so grateful for you Mark!
