My Armor 29: How To Live the “Christian Life” (Ephesians Four)

[display_podcast] So, Ephesians chapter four tells us:Always be humble and gentle. Not “sometimes” or “whenever you think about it”… but ALWAYS be humble and gentle!Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. 3 Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace. 4 For there is one body and one Spirit, just as you have been called to one glorious hope for the future.

Summit Lecture Series: Politics in the Public Arena with Tim Goeglein, part 3

To purchase the entire DVD set of the Summit Lecture Series, visit summit.org. In the political classes where I spent my professional life, when you embarrass the President or the Senator or Congressman, there is a kind of divorce that takes place.  I was cut off.  Persona non grata. And that was fully what I expected and deserved for what I had done. I immediately wrote a letter to President George W. Bush, resigning from my position at the White House, and I left the White House in total an … [Read more...]

My Armor 26: Temptations, Humility and Donuts

[display_podcast] I’ve got three boys: a nine-year-old and twin six-year-olds. And yesterday, I made the biggest mistake ever!

It was 3:00 in the afternoon, so I had to leave a … [Read more...]

[display_podcast] James is a tough book for me to wrap my arms, head, and heart around. It sometimes seems to run contrary to the letters Paul wrote, which discuss at length how we can’t do anything to earn our salvation, we are saved by grace alone… it’s all good.

Let me start off by telling you this: You’re going to hear all kinds … [Read more...]

My Armor 24: Repentance, Forgiveness & Luke Skywalker

[display_podcast] You go through life as a Christian and as you roll through life, day to day, you’re going to be faced with so much garbage. It hits you from all over. You’re inundated. And it’s heavy. And the reason that I wanted to do a Christian podcast is so that I could possibly help build you up and equip you to go out into the world and take on all that garbage. Conversely, I ask that you would remember to pray for me for this very same reason. Remember your bald Mexican friend, Mikey … [Read more...]
