WWUTT: While We Were Messed Up?

A youth leader stood before a group of teens and quoted Romans 5:8, “but God shows His love for you in that while you were messed up Christ died for you!” Now you’re going to read in the bible “That while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Why change the wording. The youth pastor would say, “Well Sin is such an archaic word. Who knows what it means anyway? Let’s just put it in words the students can understand. Or the word is too offensive and I don’t want to offend anyone. So messed up … [Read more...]

Jesus in HD 135: Demystifying Church Discipline

[display_podcast] In this week’s PODCAST, as we continue in our chronological study of the life and ministry of Jesus, we come to Matthew 18:15-17 -- one of the most important passages in all of the New Testament, the so-called “Church Discipline” passage. Church Discipline, a teaching in many local churches that really rose into prominence in the late 1970’s and became quite the trend. I can remember attending church leadership conferences back then and hearing pastors -- I’ll use word “boast … [Read more...]

The Remi Adeleke Ministries Podcast 1: Like A Lion

[display_podcast] 1 Peter 5:8 tells us:Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. This passage is the foundation for this week’s message. But, before we go on, I want to hone in on the word “like”, when Peter writes “…like a roaring lion…” Too many times, when people read or teach this passage, they glaze over the word “like” too quickly. By doing so, it can leave a false impression in the minds of new believe … [Read more...]

My Armor 28: Suffering Is For All Of Us, But It Doesn’t Last Long

[display_podcast] Some weeks are better than others. My divorce is going to be finalized very soon. Getting over something like this isn’t easy. And we all go through things like this – maybe not a divorce, but other types of loss. I took my sons to Target recently. While there, we ran into a woman who was all decked out in the “Target Garb”: khaki pants, red t-shirt, red vest with her name tag on it… the whole uniform. So, I asked her if she could help me find what we were looking for and she … [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...]

Ouxano 67: 1 Samuel 15 – God’s Way or Our Way?

[display_podcast] From Pastor Matt Tague, author of Read the Word: The Bible was written for you: This week, we pick up in 1 Samuel 15, which marks a transition in the book itself. In prior podcasts, we discussed how Saul was the king that the people of Israel wanted. They wanted to be like the nations around them, so God allowed them to have a king of their own making. We now will find out what happens when we take something that God is okay with and then remove Him from the equation in order … [Read more...]
