We begin a series of posts that help us practically examine our lives and the realities that cause us to veer into “worldliness” even though our mouths, and hopefully hearts, would claim to love Christ. This begins with what we’re doing, or not doing, in regards to feeding our minds and souls daily.
We are warriors for a “heavenly kingdom” that’s at war with actual enemies in a fallen, worldly kingdom. We’re not playing defense, we’re on the offense, “tearing down strongholds” and “taking captive our thoughts”. (2 Cor 10:3-5) We lay down our lives for our enemies’ salvation, but we also must protect the flock from wolves who seek to devour us as well. Being a well qualified “warrior” for this kingdom takes great wisdom, training, and Godly character. We’ll discuss it all here in this category – everything from how we battle selfish desires, like porn, that would destroy us, to false profits preaching bad doctrines. For a complete description of our categories, check out the Categories page.

God’s reach of grace is not hindered by your past, nor is it shortened on account of your sin…even for terrorists. It’s understandable to hate, fear, and pray against what ISIS is doing. But, what if we as believers were praying FOR the people of ISIS? What could that do?
Some messages are #SuperSermons because of their timeless value, then some because of their absolutely “dialed-in” timely message. This is one of the latter. If you’ve seen clips of this message recently, watch the whole message for both an education on preaching, and a challenge on convictions.
One of the greatest needs, and struggles, for men is purity, and not just sexually, but more so our ability to keep our heart and mind pure. This affects how we act, what we say, and everything else about us. So let’s talk about how we keep pure, together…

An amazing and super challenging message from a tell-it-like-it-is man of God, Paul Washer. This is emotional and convicting, and will leave you saying, “Why do I not think and live in such a way!?” just like a #SuperSermon should!
We all hear, “Patience is a virtue!” but what is patience? It’s easy to say we have it, but do we? Is it actually Godly? How does patience look? Does it help anything?
Peace is something many of us seek in this world. How does God promise us peace? Where can we find it? Where does peace come from? As a fruit of the Spirit, we are given peace unlike what the world can experience.
In our “selfie society” today, single guys are dealing with not only normal website porn but also seeing girls they know through SnapChat & other outlets.

In a world full of court rulings, ISIS beheading videos, and our own indwelling sin, the Church needs to hear the message of Hebrews afresh. The author of Hebrews gives us many arguments for why we should feel encouraged to persevere!
Luke 6:43 – “No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit” Galatians 5:22-23 is one of the most memorized scriptures in the bible.

The greatest commandments. The first fruit of the Spirit. Love. But are we loving as God actually commanded us to? What does it mean to truly have “love” as a fruit of the spirit? How does this play out in our lives? Nolan examines some key Bible verses that help us begin to understand what this really looks like.
What is the role of a pastor during the week? First and foremost, the life of the minister is the life of an Intercessor. Ministry starts on our knees.
Since we’re talking, – just you and me – and I want to be really honest with you, I need to tell you that we gotta talk about some stuff.
Stuff like nudity, sex, hook-ups, pornography and all that stuff. Yea, the stuff your “christian friends” call “lust”.
Porn addiction is common battle for all men of all ages and places in life – more common than we admit. This short video and message from Jimmy Needham and Desiring God gets it right on the only answer for winning this battle. Let’s hear your thoughts and stories!
“My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin.” -1 John 2:1 Why would the author of 1 John say this? “So that you may not sin”. What about grace? Doesn’t grace cover our sins, and thus it does not matter if we sin? Even if we truly love Jesus, live by faith,
Men of God want to be like our brother, and God, Jesus. Like him, we should build people up and point them to God rather than gossip, slander, and tear people down. We should point people to God in everything we say and take part in.
