Why Sexual Dimorphism Matters & How It Impacts Society – S2:EP12
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-7v3ts-109bac0 Have you noticed that when someone wants to "change" their gender they only have one option to "switch" to? Interesting, right?

WORLDLY WINS OR SPIRITUAL SUCCESSES?
Too often I think we view Christianity as something “to do” instead of “to be”. It’s great to do what the Gospel says, I’m not discounting that. But think of how much better it would be if we were to actually build the Kingdom and follow Jesus’ example because that’s who we are?

BUT IF NOT
The story of Dunkirk has always inspired me, but I just recently discovered the power of this message that was sent. This message was so incredible because the army at Dunkirk was saying simply that they REFUSED to let the tyrant that was Adolf Hitler, force them into submission and worship of the diabolical group that was the Nazi’s. They pleaded for the British government to help rescue them, ‘But if Not’, they would fight, and they would go on fighting, until the destruction of every last soldier.

Single As A Pringle (Our Thoughts On Dating) – S2:EP6

FOR ONE ANOTHER
Over the past three years, The Few has had its fair share of highs and lows, yet God has been greater than them all. He has held us together when Madie and I thought we’d fall apart, and made the victories more than worth the late-night conversations, recordings, and everything else in between.

More often than not, our first reaction to a crisis is to run to the world for a solution or “quick fix”, because we are already functioning in a worldly mindset on a daily basis. However, this is a bigger issue than we think it is. Our choices are evidence of whom we ultimately trust.
A Real Chat About Body Image – S2:EP4
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-ypi52-104faae Do you find yourself stressing over the "ideal" body type, house, car, etc? I think we can agree that it is a common struggle we all find ourselves in, sometimes very often. But how are Christians supposed to view themselves and overcome their struggles when it comes to physical appearance and people's opinions? Hit... Continue Reading →
THE ISSUE IS NOT SHOVING
I find it quite amusing that Christians are even accused of this, when truth be told, most Christians are so timid when it comes to sharing the Gospel, they are practically incapable of shoving it down anyone’s throat.
How To Be A Victor Over Your Mental Health – S2:EP3
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-f76nm-1045e66 Are you a victim or a victor? We're living in a day and age where the world isn't functioning how it was made to, and the result is that we aren't either. Whether you tend to struggle with issues such as depression, anxiety, loneliness, or just not feeling like yourself, we want you to... Continue Reading →
What does it mean to be desperate for God? Biblically, I believe it is something we are to strive towards, and it seems like there is a sense of desperation in the worship songs we sing at church on Sunday, but what does it look like in everyday life? Is it just a feeling you experience when everything in your life goes terribly wrong and you have no other “fix” or solution?

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-u8vrd-101c6fe Do you think a lot about your priorities? We talk a lot about that kind of thing here at The Few, but I think that when it comes time to examine what they truly are, we REALLY want to ignore the results. However, it's a new week, so what better time to get serious... Continue Reading →
A TIME OF TRIAL
If Christians would just realize that everything happening to us right now is to make us more Christlike, we would indeed have the passion that our persecuted brothers and sisters do. The problem is, the American Church has little desire to be Christlike because we would rather continue on in our worldliness.
The Biblical Way To Deal With Offense – Episode 58
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-avzrn-101192b How does God expect Christians to handle offense? Are we just supposed to "let it go" and hope we feel better about whatever happened in a week or so? This might surprise some of us, but God actually says a lot about forgiveness and how to address something before it gets out of hand!... Continue Reading →
Every good thing can be distorted. When we think back throughout the history of our world, we see a constant repetition of this; of good things being distorted.

There is absolute truth, and the American Church needs to stop preaching that Jesus' commands... Continue Reading →
DO YOU WANT TO WANT?
I can’t tell you how many individuals I heard say that they just felt different. Many expressed that they felt content with where God had them. Others explained that were falling in love with God’s Word again, and that they knew God was trying to speak to them in powerful ways. Then, most of them went back to their worldly “normal”.

THE GOAL OF POSTMODERNISM

I TALK BACK
Praying God’s words back to Him is one of the most powerful weapons against the forces of evil. A practice Jesus made a priority. It reminds us that God knows our way and understands what we face. It allows us to be solely dependent upon Him and trust Him. It guards our hearts and focuses our minds back on Him.
Where Are The Godly Men? – Episode 51
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-r9id4-fcfd80 Do you often wonder if you will ever find a godly spouse? Most men are not strong leaders and gentlemen anymore, and most women are caught up in being better than men, and are honestly very selfish. I think God intended us to be so much more than what we are desiring to be... Continue Reading →
To be a scandal for the world should be a blessing for believers, but only if it is for righteousness’ sake. You know, the American Church has done a terrific job at turning people into selfish creatures that live to consume.

In the next scene, he comes to and is sitting in his armchair with a cup of tea while he and Gandalf have an exchange that I believe is very important.

Should we just tell people that we love everything and that sin isn't that big of a deal? Or maybe have a serious conversation with them? These are questions that we are unfortunately facing in the culture... Continue Reading →
FOR LACK OF WONDER
I long for us to want the wonder again. The wonder that has left our homes. The admiration for Christ that has left our Churches. I would be bold enough to say that most of us stress about presents and parties and punch each Christmas more than we think about the manger, our sin, and the cross in a whole year.

I have questioned what godly guys desire in a wife, and what things are important for them to be the one to do in a relationship, as I’m sure every girl has.

MORALITY, RELIGION, AND THE 2020 ELECTION

The Church of 2020 cannot afford to be stuck “deciding” whether or not we will take a stand against sin. We are called to make it transparently obvious that we will do what is right even if it is not the popular thing to do. We don’t have a choice anymore.

THE AMERICAN’S DEVOTION
I’m so tired of people saying that Christians should just be quiet when it comes to politics. The reason believers need to stand up and speak up is because politics effects morality. Politics effect your God-given rights, the unborn, religious decisions, schooling, your safety, etc! Y’all, we have to start standing up for ourselves and the things that we know are absolute truth, because no one else will.

So, come and lay down the “Fashion of Christian coloring” at the cross and be made whole, so that we may experience true happiness and joy.
Worry Or Worship – Episode 23
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-pv9r3-ec7977 Do you let other people's opinions dictate your actions? There's a story in the Bible that has been one of our favorites ever since we were little, and we'd like to share how this powerful story relates to us in the time that we're living in. But, first I have a quick question... Are... Continue Reading →
I thought that loving who Rocky really was, was loving who he was when I hugged him outside the pizza shoppe. As I look back, I see that I was wrong. I found out as soon as I saw him through that rusty window in a jumpsuit, that really loving who people are is when you love them in the middle of their sin.
Politics, Convictions, & Hard Things – Episode 22
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-3yeq2-eb7e7d Are you thinking for yourself when it comes to the many political matters that we are dealing with? If we're being real, we aren't. You'd be surprised at just how evil some of the organizations and movements are, and how some of them are bold enough to state that evil on their websites. Crazy,... Continue Reading →
RELIGIOUS LIFE SUPPORT
There are enough “Christians” in our world today, there are enough grandma’s and grandpa’s and Christian classes to just prop us up and make us look like superheroes in the faith.

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-tb7q3-ea9037 There are so many great opportunities out there in the world, isn't there?

HOW DEAD IS TOO DEAD?
Can I just say it a little bit louder for the people in the back? NOTHING is too dead for God! Only He knows what will actually come to life.
Called To Do The Crazy – Episode 20
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-rdixz-e995b3 Has God ever called you to do something way out of the ordinary? We have a story to share with y'all today that just might raise your heart rate a little bit. It still gives me chills every time I read it! The whole point of this episode is to remind us that God... Continue Reading →
Many of us ask ourselves how we can “fix” our country. After doing much research and thinking this week, God showed me the one solution. If we are not living how God wants us to live and pursuing the truth in our everyday life, then our nation will never be “fixed”. Want to know why? Because you are the Nation. Just like you are the Church.
WAR WITHOUT WAR
You see, we wage “wars” that won’t ever satisfy us like real war will. All because we don’t want it to be an inconvenience on our part.
The reason why young people are walking away from the faith is because all they see is a bunch of dead fish. And I don’t know about you, but I don’t think that anybody wants to be discipled by a dead fish.
WHILE WE’RE SITTING
I had seen it happen many times. Heard stories told and realized that it was a harsh reality. No one else seemed bothered though. I didn’t see the people around me making an effort to stop it from happening.
WHAT’S YOUR STORY?
Heroes and heroines are formed by the stories they believe. Frodo and Sam were able to glimpse the story that their small, faithful actions were part.
WHAT WE’D MISS
Sure, it was only one night. But it was a night that person will never, ever get back.
IF WE THOUGHT ABOUT IT
We make the things of God seem optional in our lives, and when we do that, we also make them look trivial to the people around us.
LET THE ARROWS FLY
But, I was thinking afterward, “How did Hannah give up this son that she so desperately desired?” Of course she wanted her son for herself, but she wanted her son for God’s glory even more! She wanted a child who would serve the LORD, glorify Him, and further His Kingdom.
Think about this with me for a moment… Jesus was not content until He had given us all that He had. He isn’t satisfied unless He is in constant communion with those He loves.
This became evident to me one night before the quarantine ever happened, and I desperately wanted to be content with whatever God had for me. I wrote this in my journal that night, “Lord, help me to remember that your plan is so much better than what I want.” That’s stuck with me ever since I wrote it.
MAKE ME MORE
I want Jesus to make me more like Him every single day I have on this earth. However, that only happens when I look at how pure and holy He is, and I then try to imitate that.
I CALL THIS TO MIND
The author is coming to a realization of something. He’s remembering the things that God has done in the past. Look at how verse 21 starts off, it says, “Yet I call this to mind”. Remember… God doesn’t change when your emotions and circumstances do. He is constant and His faithfulness never ceases to meet every one of our needs.
The problem with “professing” Christians is that they are false and do not know basic truth. What’s worse is that the majority of them end up affecting the Church as a whole as they start to bring a sense of worldliness in with them.
How often do we do things for God simply because they have been done for generations before us instead of seeking the true will of God for the here and now?
IT COMES WITH TEARS
So, as we were driving home and I was wrestling with God about the whole prayer thing, I specifically remember Him telling me to pray whenever I saw 111 or 1111.
STARS AND MORE STARS
When an inventor invents something, he masters it. The inventor knows everything down to the very last detail of their invention. However, the invention will never be able to master its inventor. The invention just does what it is created to do. It knows its place.
SO VERY CONCERNED
I’m concerned about how the majority of Christians, here in the U.S., have handled this virus and their time at home during the quarantine. I think we have been selfish.
TODAY IS THE DAY
So, it is with much excitement that I share with you that we launched a brand-new PODCAST and it is available on many different platforms TODAY!
THE RIGHT ONES
Are y’all ready to be encouraged today? The beauty of the Gospel is that we are ALL the “right” ones. It is us who make the distinction between the “right” ones and the “best” ones, not God.
We cannot give up the souls of men. They depend on our prayer. So, let’s not let our prayers be like boy’s runaway knocks.
FACING OUR FEARS
Wow! Don’t miss the application. The very place where you experience your greatest fears, can become the very place of your greatest victory!!!
ARE YOU OK?
I then realized that the situation did look a bit odd. I mean, two guys coming in with a teenage girl to get a room, saying that they aren’t going to be staying there but that one of their friends will be the next day probably wasn’t the best idea.
THE MISSING PART OF THE STORY
Truth is, I just had to get out of the way so that God could work. I had to put down my pride and my worry to appear strong in front of others. God needed me to wholeheartedly surrender which in turn touched the young man who just happened to be watching.
SPARE NO ARROWS
I’m asking you today if you’ve just “bought in” to the battle or if you’re completely “sold out”? Because if you’ve just “bought in”, you’re really not fighting. You’re standing on the sideline sparing your arrows, wondering how much it will cost you.
Do you realize that you’re often the closest thing a lot of people will ever get to a church door? People listen to how you talk to others, they notice if your content with your job, or if your attitude is different at school.
HE DOESN’T FORGET
You see, God’s promises and His goodness do not depend on how I feel about it. Thank the Lord it doesn’t, because I’ve given Him countless reasons and chances to walk away from me.
I’M SO DONE
The reason that I’m pouring out what’s on my heart all in one post, is because if Jesus decides to come tonight, I want to have said what He told me to say today. Oh, how I long to live every day for Jesus. With passion! With an expectant heart that I’m going to get to see Him move!
DITCH THE LESSON PLAN
Sometimes God needs us to get our planners and agenda’s out of the way so that He can work. Because our tendency is to box Him in so tightly that He doesn’t even want to work because He knows we don’t really want Him to.
THE WORLD I WALK IN
Can I be real with y’all today? That is not the world I walk in. Failure is NOT an option for me.
BROWN PAPER BAGS
In the midst of all of the busyness and all of the people trying to avoid eye contact with the person that was passing them on the sidewalk, I noticed that many of them were carrying crinkled up brown paper bags.
A THOUSAND & ONE
But, one thing I do know, is that he won’t have to live it out alone. I will be there a thousand and one times over.
