Finally, the father picked the little fellow up and walked sternly up the aisle on his way out.Just before reaching the safety of the foyer, the little one called loudly to the congregation, "Pray for me! Pray for me!"

From: Brad Subject: Thankful I found your podcast!!! Troy & Doug, I found your podcast last week and have been listening to about 2 broadcasts a day while at work. I'm a fellow believer in Christ and an outdoor enthusiast! I found your site because I started following Doug on his YouTube site and webpage ( I knew there was something different about you Doug from the start, and after I got your "Counter Violence" book and read the dedication page, I said out loud..."I thought so!" It said, "dedicated to my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ!"

I very much appreciate both of your real life stories and real life faith.

Would love to hear your thoughts on gun registration, and would you recommend purchasing anything you have to register? I am a law abiding citizen, and live in a state that is restrictive and do not want to have anything that is registered, because let's face it, the first people the Nazi's put in jail were Pastors and all registered gun owners.

From: Ryan Subject: Tithing Hello, Just came across your show and I was very excited about it so I downloaded a few of the 1st episodes. After listening to a few I have heard some things that seem very concerning to me. Overall you guys seem to be a lot more zealous and knowledgeable about secular things (movies, sports etc...) than biblical things even though you both say you have grown up in Christian homes.

Specifically I would like to ask you to support your position on tithing... I can only find 3 examples in scripture of people or groups tithing. That would be Abraham, the Israelites (under OT law) and the Pharisees (also Israelites under OT law). Which one should I tithe like?

Thank you

Weekly Bible Verses

I thank God whom I serve, as did my ancestors, with a clear conscience, as I remember you constantly in my prayers night and day. As I remember your tears, I long to see you, that I may be filled with joy. I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, dwells in you as well.  For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands,  for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God,  who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began, and which now has been manifested through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel,  for which I was appointed a preacher and apostle and teacher, which is why I suffer as I do. But I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed, and I am convinced that he is able to guard until that Day what has been entrusted to me. 2 Timothy 1:3-12 (ESV)

Barbara Haley was at home in Omaha, Neb. when she was awakened by her dog barking. Suspicious, Haley retrieved a .45-caliber pistol and went to investigate. Initially, Haley didn’t find anyone in the home and went back to bed. However, another noise roused Haley again, at which point she discovered an intruder in a bedroom closet. Haley ordered the man to stay still and held him at gunpoint in the closet until police arrived. Following the incident, Haley told a local media outlet, “I’m glad I had that gun… And I’m thinking they (burglars) won’t try this again anytime soon.”
