From The Hall:

Dan Richardson For you Apple fans, sorry Immanuel, I’ve made this into a 30sec ringtone. You’re welcome https://www.dropbox.com/…/Jesus%20Is%20a%20Friend%20of…
Jeff Hendricks Episode 16: my notes are as follows.It’s “co-habitating” not “co-habiting”. What’s a co-habit? Two people smoking at the same time? Two nuns? Sorry, Immanuel! I had Living Colour on constant play in my car’s tape deck. We’d love to do a cover of Cult Of Personality! Wouldn’t have pegged you as a metal head, but yeah… might have to add Enter Sandman to the list too.”The Renewed Mind” OMG that was awful… he actually tried to moonwalk?? Fail, fail, fail. Might have a hard time converting that one to Chiptune… doing the last one was severely traumatic! My children were permanently scarred from my having to watch it like 10 times in a row.

@mygospelfriends Apple all the way!! Mac and iPhone are great!

Hershel Kreis (@W4TMN)
@mygospelfriends Definitely need to have Immanuel there more often! Enjoyed his contribution in Episode 16

@mygospelfriends – Finishing the latest podcast. I’ve had it! I need a Gospel Friends dictionary for all religious-like terms you use. (From David: @IamSuperdad @mygospelfriends Plus – all the words we make up as we go along…)
That John Daker video not only made me LOL, it was the first time in years I nearly wet myself laughing. @mygospelfriends

@mygospelfriends Strongly suspecting John Daker didn’t make #16 cover due to your superpowers of grace and mercy.
ALSO: @mygospelfriends Had episode #16 on my mind when preacher spoke on marrying cohabitors this morning! Thanks for the prep!
Let There Be Movies (@LetThereBMovies)
@mygospelfriends “The General” should also have a tagline… “evil is expensive” Hahaha. Loved the iPhone/apple v. android/google battle.
@mygospelfriends REALLY loved the discussion on who pastors can/should marry. Need to study more on this myself. Great dialogue!

Rob Johnson (@robjohnson90)
@mygospelfriends Good show guys, really like Immanuel’s perspective. Have to say, I dug God’s not dead as I think it opens doors for layman.

@mygospelfriends legal counsel likely advised on the chances of being sued and the cost if sued; board likely made decision based on info. best case if sued pay lots of $ and keep cross; worst case pay lot of $ and ordered to remove cross. No win if sued. but attorney who called school is a moron. People think they have a right to not be offended. (I’m a lawyers too)

@mygospelfriends I find your show; thoughtful, humorous & SEC CRAZY (a little much) @mygospelfriends absolutely. I am sure, you will understand that. We are proud of their effort against ‘mighty’ Alabama ! @mygospelfriends funny -haha-I’m an Arminius fan too. I’m baptist-but Freewill. Don’t hold it against you guys, though.

Can you worship your family?
It is possible to worship your family, at the expense of our call to the church and the gospel? How do we raise our kids, love our wives, pastor our homes and NOT make family an idol?http://thegospelcoalition.org/blogs/kevindeyoung/2014/07/24/7-signs-we-are-worshipping-the-family/

Thanks for the reviews! Humbled by our appearance on the iTunes Religion & Spirituality New and Notable section this week. If you like the show, please consider reviewing us on iTunes.

Shout out to Jeremiah Martin: @jeremiahdmartin Yes, I’m currently enrolled pursuing an M.Div in Chaplaincy. By the way, I love the podcast!

Lamar: I think super-powered and other epic heroes provide children opportunities to exercise their imagination and, by playing the good guy, reinforce what we teach about being good. I also think boys who throw a hammer or a shield, among others characters, in their play have good role models to emulate but 1, is hero-play just for boys? 2 considering Nick’s comments on comic and movie depictions of women, are there any good heroes for girls to play as? and 3 do any of them appear in movies you can watch with your family? Thanks!
