Sound of Freedom: Confronting Human Trafficking and the Pursuit of Virtue
As I recount the powerful narrative of "Sound of Freedom," a film led by the talented Jim Caviezel, I'm reminded of the harsh realities that lurk beneath the surface of society. Human trafficking, particularly its ghastly effect on children, sits at the heart of our latest poignant discussion. The movie, while sparing us the graphic details, doesn't shy away from the gravity of this global crisis. It's a conversation that challenges us to open our eyes and hearts to the suffering of the innocent. Drawing from the profound messages in Matthew 18, we navigate the spiritual depth presented in the film, reflecting on the collective responsibility to safeguard the purity and joy of childhood.Venturing further into the realm of personal accountability, this episode sheds light on the mutual influence men and women have on each other's pursuit of holiness. Through the lens of scripture and with a nod to the powerful way that dramatic storytelling can touch on moral complexities, we examine the interplay of modesty, temptation, and virtue. Join us as we share personal anecdotes, including the inspiring example my wife sets, which underscore the importance of upholding purity in our daily lives. This isn't just a conversation; it's a rallying call for us all to support one another in the journey towards a more virtuous existence, illuminated by the teachings that have stood the test of time.Support the show🛑Support the channel: https://bit.ly/2yUE9Fy🤳🏻LIVE STREAM LIKE A PRO! https://bit.ly/452wNdl🔥STREAM GEAR! https://kit.co/stephentilmon/live-stream-like-a-pro🪭Fan Page: https://www.facebook.com/faithandfailures/💪🏼Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/faithandfailures/💡Lights: collabs.shop/yxtlvd🎙️Mics: https: https://amzn.to/3mTgFK2🍔 Save with #doordash https://drd.sh/MwpyyrMtJ29uegdM🎇Booms:https://amzn.to/3HsubM3⏺️Audio Recorder: https://amzn.to/3oxO1yDMy Entire Kit: https://kit.co/stephentilmon🎧Headphones: https://amzn.to/43XGXLRMy Podcast 1.

Joe Rogan Is Reading the Bible On His Podcast?
East Texas's wintry blanket may have cooled our plans, but it ignited an impromptu exploration into the resilience of the human spirit and mysteries of faith. Life's unexpected detours often lead to profound discoveries, much like the story we've been eager to share from Cassie and Jeff, a remarkable couple from my church. Their battle with COVID-19, particularly Cassie's severe illness and inspiring recovery, alongside Jeff's unwavering support, is a testament to the strength found in community and conviction. Their anticipated narrative has been momentarily delayed, yet it serves as a reminder that personal stories—like theirs—are the essence of our conversations here.Shifting focus, we examine the enigmatic "mark of the beast," a subject that stirs as much curiosity as caution. The Book of Revelation offers rich imagery, inviting listeners to reflect on the interplay between appearances and hidden truths, especially in the context of those who wield influence. As we navigate these scriptures, their implications ripple through our modern lives, provoking thought on commerce, authority, and faith.

Do Christians Have To Agree On Everything?
Can Christianity and witchcraft ever align? We delve into this perplexing question as we confront the concept of Christian Witchcraft and the divisive ideologies infiltrating our faith's narrative. With a keen eye on scriptural authenticity, we dissect the juxtaposition of biblical warnings against sorcery with the burgeoning community of self-proclaimed "Christian witches." This episode isn't just a theological debate; it's a clarion call for unity and adherence to the Gospel's message of redemption through Jesus Christ. As we navigate the murky waters of Jesus's identity and the canonization of the Bible, our focus sharpens on the importance of selecting religious texts with precision, ensuring the preservation of the doctrinal purity that has guided generations.Venture with us into the theological labyrinth where the pursuit of knowledge meets faith. The Garden of Eden story sets the stage for our exploration of humanity's original sin and the consequences of yearning for divine wisdom. We tease an upcoming live stream that promises to illuminate the spiritual gifts, such as prophecy, that believers may claim—revealing a life purpose intertwined with God's grand design. In these moments of reflection, we grapple with claims likening Jesus's knowledge to that of a witch's, a notion that serves to remind us of the intricate dance between faith interpretation and scriptural understanding.

Should Christians Be Using Crystals?
Discover why the latest social media controversy about Jesus being a witch is more than just a viral sensation; it's a call to deepen our understanding of faith and scripture. As your host, I'm tackling these bold claims head-on, elucidating the stark contrasts between Biblical references to precious stones and the entirely separate practices of witchcraft that involve crystals. You'll be guided through the murky waters of misinterpretation and learn the importance of connecting personally with the divine, underpinning an authentic Christian life that reflects the teachings of Christ rather than getting entangled in baseless online disputes.In the swirling vortex of misinformation that social media often presents, we stand to lose our moral compass if we're not careful. Pulling wisdom from Isaiah 5, I explore the modern-day blurring of good and evil and make a passionate plea for discernment through a return to scriptural truth. The vivid imagery of the new Jerusalem is more than a biblical metaphor; it serves as a beacon for clarity and purity in our comprehension.

Does The Pope Have Authority To Change The Word Of God?
Can the Church reconcile same-sex blessings with scripture? This quandary takes center stage as we dissect Pope Francis' groundbreaking stance and its apparent clash with biblical directives. The episode is a deep dive into the Vatican's nuanced explanation of same-sex blessings, contrasting them with the traditional sacrament of marriage. Yet, the debate rages on—is it nonsensical to bless what the Bible deems sinful? We tackle this head-on, sharing personal encounters with sin and the deceptive comfort of escaping immediate consequences. Our narrative weaves through the notion that God's silence is not consent, suggesting that suffering might be His profound way of steering us back to righteousness.Dare we allow cultural shifts to redefine Christianity? This episode doesn't shy away from the tough questions as we probe the trend of modern churches bending to societal pressures, at the risk of mocking divine decrees. We’re not just talking about holding firm to faith; we're challenging listeners to measure their lives against the unchanging yardstick of scripture. With real-life anecdotes peppered throughout, we underscore the urgency of discerning right from wrong through God's lens.

This episode isn't just a confession; it's a journey toward understanding the true nature of Christianity, as we dispel myths about its association with witchcraft and realign with the life and teachings of Jesus Christ and the prophets.Amidst these reflections, we also examine the thin line between wrestling with sin and being ensnared by it.

From Skeptic to Believer: Faith, Theology, and Politics in Today's World
My transformation from a life entrenched in skepticism and waywardness to one of devout leadership sets the stage for a riveting discussion that will challenge your perspectives on hot-button theological issues. Brushing off the dust of misinterpretation, we firmly reject the scandalous assertion that Jesus was transgender, reinforcing the sanctity of Scriptural truths. As we navigate through these deep theological waters, we'll share personal accounts of faith, highlighting the significance of exegesis in understanding the Bible, and how it shapes our views on sexual ethics as aligned with God's original plan.As the weight of these discussions settles, we'll uplift spirits with some holiday warmth, reminiscing over cherished family traditions and the seasonal staple, "Mary, Did You Know?" Yet, the conversation doesn't end there. Brace yourselves for an intriguing preview on the divisive notion of being "trans-abled," and prepare for a chuckle or two with our satirical nod to current politics. Through the lens of faith, we scrutinize President Biden's policies and their alignment—or lack thereof—with Christian values, all while fostering a community that's both informed and engaged.

Dissecting the Intersection of Disability, Victim Mentality, and Ideological Trends
As our world evolves, the narrative surrounding disability and identity takes on ever more intricate layers. We're peeling back those layers, bringing you a frank conversation that differentiates between the real challenges faced by disabled individuals and the burgeoning trend of a victim mentality, which sees the able-bodied adopting the controversial term "pre-disabled." The discussion cuts to the core of how this mindset may unintentionally undermine the genuine struggles of those with disabilities, while also exploring why some find allure in self-victimization. We dissect the implications on empowerment and victory, advocating for understanding yet questioning the psychological effects of adopting such identities.This episode also dares to navigate the murky waters of ideology and gender identity, critiquing the practice of altering one's body to align with perceived identities, exemplified by a woman's choice to blind herself. Here, we confront the role of medical professionals, the entanglement of leftist agendas, and the complex interplay between personal autonomy and societal expectations. As a Christian, I'm joined by fellow believers in questioning these evolving norms and advocating for a return to scriptural truths. We don't shy away from the tough conversations, examining where faith intersects with the rapidly shifting societal landscape, all the while championing direct access to God's grace in our modern world.Support the show🛑Support the channel: https://bit.ly/2yUE9Fy🤳🏻LIVE STREAM LIKE A PRO! https://bit.ly/452wNdl🔥STREAM GEAR! https://kit.co/stephentilmon/live-stream-like-a-pro🪭Fan Page: https://www.facebook.com/faithandfailures/💪🏼Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/faithandfailures/💡Lights: collabs.shop/yxtlvd🎙️Mics: https: https://amzn.to/3mTgFK2🍔 Save with #doordash https://drd.sh/MwpyyrMtJ29uegdM🎇Booms:https://amzn.to/3HsubM3⏺️Audio Recorder: https://amzn.to/3oxO1yDMy Entire Kit: https://kit.co/stephentilmon🎧Headphones: https://amzn.to/43XGXLRMy Podcast 1.

Progressive Christians On TikTok - Pastor Reacts
Navigating the turbulent waters of love and faith, I once mistook my limited grasp for a full understanding, leading me down a path of confusion about love's true meaning. Our latest conversation takes us into the heart of this complexity, tackling the tricky distortions of the sacred text by some churches that mold scripture to validate sin, all under the banner of love. We dissect a provocative video that claims Jesus never condemned anyone for their sexual orientation or gender identity, and weigh the perspectives of creators like Original Mr. B, who offers counterarguments that challenge such assertions.As the episode unfolds, we confront the often-cited but problematic phrase, "God loves the sinner but hates the sin," examining its implications on LGBTQ+ discussions within Christian circles. Our guest, Ellen Schleeman, helps us scrutinize the insidious nature of this well-intentioned yet harmful cliche, as it frequently translates to the LGBTQ+ community as a message of hate rather than love. We strive to extricate the authentic essence of love from the tangles of misinterpretation, redirecting our focus to the core of what love signifies in the realm of faith and righteousness, and proposing a more compassionate approach to presenting the gospel.Support the show🛑Support the channel: https://bit.ly/2yUE9Fy🤳🏻LIVE STREAM LIKE A PRO! https://bit.ly/452wNdl🔥STREAM GEAR! https://kit.co/stephentilmon/live-stream-like-a-pro🪭Fan Page: https://www.facebook.com/faithandfailures/💪🏼Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/faithandfailures/💡Lights: collabs.shop/yxtlvd🎙️Mics: https: https://amzn.to/3mTgFK2🍔 Save with #doordash https://drd.sh/MwpyyrMtJ29uegdM🎇Booms:https://amzn.to/3HsubM3⏺️Audio Recorder: https://amzn.to/3oxO1yDMy Entire Kit: https://kit.co/stephentilmon🎧Headphones: https://amzn.to/43XGXLRMy Podcast 1.

Why Won't Trump Answer These Questions About God?
Can President Biden's impeachment proceedings teach us anything about the state of American politics? Our latest episode takes you on a journey through the treacherous waters of impeachment history, contrasting the attempts to dethrone Biden with those faced by former President Trump. We dissect not just the political mechanisms but delve into the philosophical underpinnings of leadership—both spiritual and political. I'll share my insights on the critical issue of term limits, drawing from Biblical narratives like Adam and Eve to illustrate the innate human struggle with power. And for those still captivated by the Trump era, I confront the complex matter of loyalty and patriotism, dissecting what it truly means to support a leader.This episode doesn't shy away from the enigmatic union of faith and politics as I scrutinize Donald Trump's purported Christian journey. Has Norman Vincent Peale's influence shaped Trump beyond his business acumen, into his spiritual beliefs? This question leads us to ponder the authenticity of a leader's faith and its role in guiding a nation. We dive deep into Trump's interactions with religious figures and the echoing voices of his supporters, examining whether his faith is a deeply woven thread in the fabric of his leadership or merely a tapestry for the public eye.Wrapping up, we zoom in on the magnifying glass over Trump's acceptance of Christianity's core tenet—the need for a savior. Without a public declaration of faith from Trump himself, we're left to speculate and analyze the breadcrumbs of his religious evolution throughout his presidency. I encourage our listeners to reflect on their own spiritual values and how they intersect with their political choices. As an added bonus, I spotlight a YouTube channel that champions biblically sound content, inviting our audience to join a broader theological discussion. This episode promises to be a thought-provoking exploration of the intricate tapestry of faith, power, and politics.Support the show🛑Support the channel: https://bit.ly/2yUE9Fy🤳🏻LIVE STREAM LIKE A PRO! https://bit.ly/452wNdl🔥STREAM GEAR! https://kit.co/stephentilmon/live-stream-like-a-pro🪭Fan Page: https://www.facebook.com/faithandfailures/💪🏼Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/faithandfailures/💡Lights: collabs.shop/yxtlvd🎙️Mics: https: https://amzn.to/3mTgFK2🍔 Save with #doordash https://drd.sh/MwpyyrMtJ29uegdM🎇Booms:https://amzn.to/3HsubM3⏺️Audio Recorder: https://amzn.to/3oxO1yDMy Entire Kit: https://kit.co/stephentilmon🎧Headphones: https://amzn.to/43XGXLRMy Podcast 1.

How is this prophecy, dating back 600 years before Jesus, unfolding in modern times? And more importantly, why is the fulfilment of this prophecy so imperative for God's master plan of human redemption?Moving on, we challenge conventional wisdom as we decode the scriptures of end times, juxtaposing it with major world events of our era. From the regathering of the Jews in 1948 to the prophecies of pre-tribulation, mid-tribulation, and post-tribulation, we leave no stone unturned.
