ABOUT THE HOST

THE REAL DEAL
Dewey Bertolini takes a contemporary look at The Real Deal: What the Bible really says about life, liberty and the pursuit of Godliness. Every other week, Dewey examines events from the news, pop culture and his own life through a lens that looks deep into our intentions and our actions, then compares them to true Biblical principles.

THE PODCAST
It’s difficult to evaluate someone’s faith. Since each individual expresses themselves, well… individually, it is up to each of us – as individuals – to take a good, hard look at our hearts. The Bible says that our love and the “fruit that we bear” will help determine the level or strength of our faith. In this podcast, Dewey aims to help you answer the question, “Is your faith authentic or counterfeit?” In other words, when you run the course of life and react to the world around you, where are your priorities and how what is your decision making process… and how do they compare to what the Bible instructs us?

PODCASTER BIO
Dewey has been married to his dear wife, Rebecca, for 36 years. They have two grown children — Dave, and his wife Amy; Ashley, and her husband Chris; and four grandchildren — Callie, Nora, Maggie, and Naomi.
A committed follower of Jesus who is unapologetically conservative in his theology without being uptight, legalistic, judgmental, or angry. Dewey speaks annually to thousands of young people and adults through camps and conferences throughout the country. He has written five books, and has been featured on such varied broadcasts as Focus on the Family and the 700 Club.
Hopeful in his outlook. Redemptive in his purpose. Joyful in his heart. Worshipful in his spirit.
A man who prefers to define himself by what he is for, rather than what he is against.
Basically, Dewey is simply a guy of loves God, loves His Word, and loves people; all the while trying to keep his life that simple ‘cuz, honestly, “It’s not that complicated.”

The Real Deal 27: Our Uncommon God

At the Safe Haven, we are having a glorious time working our way through the Lord’s Prayer, little by little, phrase by majestic phrase. Think of the Lord’s Prayer as the Son of God teaching you and me how to pray to God. Amazing. And it all starts with the enigmatic little phrase: “Hallowed be […]

The Real Deal 26: Recalibrating Our Expectations

The other night at the Safe Haven, during our series — Jesus in High Definition — we had a heart-to-heart. A heart-to-heart discussion about misinformed expectations. The premise of the talk was this: Too many of us mistakenly expect that we are entitled to a trouble-free life. We have been taught — Haven’t we? — […]

The Real Deal 25: Loving Those Different than Us

In Matthew chapter 5, Jesus commands us Christians to love our enemies.  Now, this is a very well known and often recited and taught upon passage. However, one part that is often missed is when Jesus continued from there to say: …and if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others?  […]

The Real Deal 24: Duck Dynasty

Well, my friends, they say that “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.” I don’t know if I’ve ever realized the truth of that statement as much as I do this morning. I was just about to throw my hat into the ring of controversy surrounding Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson’s GQ Magazine interview […]

The Real Deal 23: Voices from a Video

If a picture is worth a thousand words, how much is a compelling, truthful, tell-it-like-it-is, brutally honest video worth? As a guy who has been in church leadership for over 40 years, trust me when I say how sincerely sorry I am that so many have done so much damage to so many of you. […]

The Real Deal 22: God’s Will

Time to tackle yet another question from camp. And this one just happens to be one of my all-time favorites. This student phrased the question as follows: How do I know if God is “calling” me to do something? How do I know if it’s just what I want to do? I can’t wait to get into this. For two […]

The Real Deal 21: Halloween

Call me a contrarian, but I LOVE Halloween. And I, for one, am not prepared to concede this holy-day to the enemy. Here’s why: Halloween is a contraction of two words, Hallows’ Eve. “Hallows” (related to the word “holy”) is a reference to “saints” (having nothing to do with the Church conferring sainthood on dead […]

The Real Deal 20: Rejection

It’s one of the saddest verses in all of the Bible, and yet (ironically) one of the most encouraging. Especially for one very special junior high student. The verse to which I refer is John 1:11, which reads in the New Living Translation, Jesus came to his own people, and EVEN THEY rejected him (emphasis […]

The Real Deal 19: How Old Is The Earth, Really?

Why do some people say the earth is millions of years old, and others say it’s only thousands of years old? I am so confused. I hear one thing in church, and another thing at school. Why can’t science and the Bible agree? What great questions, asked by a junior higher at camp. I LOVE, […]

The Real Deal 18: Why Is My Mom A Crackhead?

No junior higher should ever have to ask God a question like this. But that is exactly the question one middle school student asked when given the opportunity. “If you could ask God one question, and knew that He would give you an honest answer, what would you ask?” One student’s response: “Why is my […]
