Corey Great show with Plinkster. You gotta keep that gun away from the mic though, keep up the good work. Thanks for the shows.

Mike Truly a great show Thank you both for sharing how easy it is to get too over involved in something and how to overcome that.

Joseph GOD n GUNS A great combination, both offering one common thing. FREEDOM!! Freedom from oppression! One from Sin and death, the other from Man.

Mark Just a FYI.  This ESP sounds like you're in a open room.  Not on a microphone.

Jeff Hey guys,

I found your podcast about a week ago, and after listening to a couple random episodes I decided to start at the beginning.  I am at episode 29, and still intrigued.  Great job!  I really enjoy the content, and quite a few episodes have been very convicting.  I will head over to iTunes and give you a five star rating!

On a side note for Troy and his father, I purchased a slide pull charging handle for my SA XD9 Sub Compact.  My wife can easily rack the slide, whereas without it she had a hard time doing so.  It has held up well, and seems to be of great quality.  Here is the link:   Thank you guys again for all that you do, and I look forward to everything that is to come of your show. God Bless,

Shannon Great show! I've only recently started listening to podcasts and quickly discovered FRN. I subscribe to the master feed and am still trying to catch up. Just listened to Project Appleseed today and found myself mesmerized listening to the real history of our forefathers. As soon as I'm done writing this I'm going to their website hoping to find something near my home so I can take my boys. I also want to say that I love the idea of combining God and guns as they are; the most important thing in my life, and one of my favorite earthly joys. Keep up the good work and God bless. Thanks again and take care

Weekly Bible Verse: Luke 6: 27-36 (ESV)

 Love Your Enemies

27 “But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. 29To one who strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also, and from one who takes away your cloak do not withhold your tunic either. 30 Give to everyone who begs from you, and from one who takes away your goods do not demand them back. 31 And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.

32 “If you love those who love you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. 33 And if you do good to those who do good to you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. 34 And if you lend to those from whom you expect to receive, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, to get back the same amount. 35 But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return, and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, for he is kind to the ungrateful and the evil. 36Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful.

Main Topic: Troy’s Monologue - Love Your Enemies

Headlines from NRA News

1. Break out the current political, temper laiden, short fused, crazed, fearful seeking security, hate filled, and intellectually lazy. 2. Chaos in the news, around the world, in your own community. 3. What can we do:

  1. Support - Pro-Gun, Pro-Life, Pro-Family groups with money or whatever God has given you. i.e. NRA, Gun Owners of America, NAGR, ACLJ, Focus on the Family, local groups.

  2. Volunteer - Project Appleseed, local gun range, church to teach, pass out info, make calls.

  3. Engage - When you see a lie, engage it with truth.

  4. Interact - Talk with those you don't see eye to eye with, it is a two way street, as long as they don’t know you they believe what they want about you. If you befriend them then they see you're not the monster they’ve been led to believe.

  5. Enlighten - Share information about what is really going on in a non-threatening, non-emotional way.

  6. Recruit - You know which of your friends, family, co-workers think like you. Help lead them to get involved with you.

  7. Teach - Volunteer for church, community, little league, take hunting people that don’t know how, 4H, your kids, grandkids, help mothers and fathers in single parent families by watching their kids so they can have a break.

  8. Encourage - Young people, the afraid, the weak, the worn out. Heavy sighs

  9. Mentor - Take a younger or more novice person under your wing and teach them what you know, invest in the future.

(You all already know this, just make an intentional effort to start sharing.) Start now, schedule a block of time each week and find something that you are good at and keep doing it, then train someone else to do what you are doing.

4. Fear - all the problems we can see around use are based in fear in that the politician stir up the fear so they will give away the freedoms of us all for the false promise of peace. We know there is no peace apart from Jesus. The most important thing we can do in all of our lives here on this earth is to point others to Jesus to put their faith in him, not is us or a party, or a movement, or a country, or laws. We all suffer under the curse of Adam and those who do not know the Prince of Peace have no hope. Jesus is the son of God, who became man, lived amongst us the perfect life free from sin, became a sacrifice for the sins of all men to redeem us to our God. Who died and rose and again and is seated at the right hand of the father. This is our faith. Just as the World was condemned by the sin of Adam, the world can be redeemed by Jesus.

In the next couple shows we will be interview a couple high profile people in the Christian-Prepper community. These will be discussions on their beliefs and I encourage you to catch the next few shows as they will be important to reflect on as the world continues its path towards Revelations time approaching.
