New Podcast: By the Waters of Babylon with Scott Aniol

I am pleased to announce the launch of a new podcast: “By the Waters of Babylon with Scott Aniol.”

For years I have posted a weekly blog here at Religious Affections Ministries, and recently a bi-weekly opinion piece at The Christian Post. This new format will provide content for those who enjoy listening to podcasts. I personally listen every day, to and from work, to podcasts including news, sermons, theology, commentary and more. I am happy to offer this podcast to engage in important matters through an audio format.

My goal for this podcast is to be informative, devotional, and challenging. I will address biblical principles, historical issues, and recommended resources centered on the theme of Christians seeking to please the Lord in a culture that is increasingly post-Christian.

The podcast is only 20 minutes long and includes 3–4 short segments as well as recommended resources. I’m sure the format will evolve over time, and I welcome comments and suggestions for things you’d like to hear.

Please help spread the word about this new podcast by sharing it on social media, and give the first episode a listen!

  1. As a Brazilian pastor, the subject of worship God as He wants us to do it’s have been a very problematic issue here (unfortunately even among the conservative churches here).
    I’m very thankful for the articles that I found here and now for this podcast initiative.
    If you guys consider translating some of the articles here, I will more than happy to help with it. Count on me!
    May God continue to bless your lives and ministeries!

  2. Hello Scott,
    Listened to this on the way to work this morning. Great stuff. I was wondering if you could post the books and blog posts you recommended in this and future episodes somewhere to make them easily accessible, instead of having to find the time stamps where you mentioned them.
