The Practice of Fasting, Plus a Look at Gnosticism

Everyday Disciples

28-09-2022 • 49 min

This week on Everyday Disciples, we take a look at a practice that doesn't get a lot of attention these days: fasting. Jesus talked about fasting as a way of trusting in God and it's a practice that many followers of Jesus have found to be beneficial to their walk. We'll explore the practice and talk about Jesus' teaching about it.

Then, we're looking at a religion you may never have heard of but one that you've undoubtedly been influenced by: Gnosticism. It's an old belief that was growing around the time Christianity was getting started and it's influenced it in many ways! We'll point out how it has influenced us even today and what God's Word says instead.
