(Interview) Wolves At The Gate on Church Support for Creatives

Believers are bestowed by God with talents. Each Christians has these gifts that, out of the abundant grace of God, are to be use to further the Kingdom of God. That can be found in the preaching of the gospel for unbelievers and to us, who repented and trusted Christ, as a means to be edify.

So now the question is: how do the body of Christ nurture these Christians who are given talents that resonates and influence others? What kind of support should the church give to believers to help them know utilize it to advance the message of the gospel?

I reach out to Steve Cobucci, guitarist and vocalist of the post hardcore band, Wolves at the Gate to know how their church gives them support as creatives.

Please tell us about your band and how did you came to know the Lord.


Our band has been around since 2008 when we started it in college. We started off playing house shows in town and then eventually got the opportunities to play venues in Ohio & the surrounding states. Eventually we put out our first EP “We Are The Ones” thinking it would be the last thing we would do, but it turned out to be the thing that got us a record deal.

If we are people of the Book, then how do shepherds of the church under the guidance of our Great Shepherd, conduct themselves as they feed the flock with every Word found in that Book? If the Bible is the final authority of the Christian in life here and the next, what kind of diligence should a pastor conduct to make sure the believers under his care knows ultimately a book that means life and death to his soul?

(Interview) Obbie Tyler Todd On the Atonement of Jesus Christ

The word atonement is a key to understand the relationship with God and sinful man through Christ’s death. Without the atonement, what Christ accomplished is mere heroic deed. Atonement is the game changer when viewing deeply what the death on the cross really mean for the believers position before a holy God. Author Obbie Tyler Todd opened another view of this important doctrine, in his book The Moral Governmental Theory of Atonement which is, as the title suggest, moral governmental theory (MGT). I haven’t heard this view so I reach out and chat with him about this. He has another book also tackling MGT which is the latest, titled A Baptist at the Crossroad. So we chat about it plus upcoming works in this interview:

Would you consider A Baptist At The Crossroad as a sequel to your previous book The Moral Governmental Theory of Atonement?

Thanks for the opportunity to talk about the book. To answer your question, I’d say: this book is part 2 in a 3-part series! I’ll explain. I began writing this book first. It’s a revised version of my dissertation at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. My focus all along was Richard Furman, a neglected figure in Baptist history who I decided to study. I was introduced to him by Tom Nettles at Southern Seminary during my Th.M. years. However, when I began reading Furman’s writings, I discovered that in order to understand Furman’s doctrine of atonement, I would need to first master the moral governmental view of atonement because he seemed to integrate the theory into his overall view.

Church vs. Serial Killer

The church is a beacon of hope to this world because of the task Christ gave to preach the gospel. As the fruit of the gospel and one of the reason we are saved, we are to do good works to magnify God. We are to extend it to the community. And if we look at church history we find instances that Christians shines. Call it a revolution, but indeed believers turned the world upside down. Through opportunities that God opens to us we can minister go people and share the gospel.

Churches may encounter crisis in like disasters or a pandemic, but how will you respond on a serial killer on the loose? How will you counsel the victim’s relative and most importantly, the whole neighborhood? Matt Horan and Seminole Heights United Methodist Church had a say on this predicament.
