The UNPACKIN' it Podcast With Bryce Johnson

College Football Playoff

Bryce Johnson and Luke Heaton unpack the outrage from fans that certain teams deserved to make the CFP more than others...and how this type of thinking affects our views of life and salvation.



This Week's Questions:


• How can we avoid the temptation of believing that God owes us certain outcomes?

• Why is knowing the "who" more important than knowing the "why"?

• Why should we rejoice that God does not give believers what they deserve?
