Comedy Corner:

  1. A hat was passed around a church congregation to take up an offering for the visiting minister.Presently, it was returned to him...embarrassingly empty. Slowly, the preacher inverted the hat and shook it meaningfully. Then, raising his eyes heavenward, he exclaimed, "I thank you, Lord, that I got my hat back from this congregation."

  1. The Sunday School Teacher asks, “Now, Johnny, tell me frankly do you say prayers before eating?” “No sir,” little Johnny replies, I don’t have to. My mom is a good cook.”

  1. After church one Sunday morning, a mother commented, "The choir was awful this morning." The father commented, "The sermon was too long." Their 7-year-old daughter added, "You've got to admit it was a pretty good show for a dollar."

Ricky McMurdo Says,

“G’day Troy, Listening all the way over here in Australia and just wanted to thank you for the great job you are doing with the podcast. I think Doug is a great addition to the podcast as a co-host and I am looking forward to any future podcasts you do together. As a relatively new Christian I have found this podcast especially helpful, it is great to gain a Christian perspective on firearms ownership among other important aspects of life. Unfortunately due to financial constraints I will not be able to gain a hold of any firearms here soon, however one day I hope to enjoy the freedoms that you have in America by becoming an American citizen. Thanks again for the great work you are doing and I wish you all a very Merry Christmas.”

Shawn Merrill says

Enjoy The Weekly Podcasts. I've truly enjoyed listening to the podcasts recently with Troy and my good buddy Doug. The stories and experiences you both share are interesting and the passages from the Bible you share each week are uplifting as well as a blessing! Keep up the great job and God bless!

Weekly Bible Verse:

Hebrews 12: 11-17 (ESV)

For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.

Therefore lift your drooping hands and strengthen your weak knees, and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be put out of joint but rather be healed. Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord. See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no “root of bitterness” springs up and causes trouble, and by it many become defiled; that no one is sexually immoral or unholy like Esau, who sold his birthright for a single meal. For you know that afterward, when he desired to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no chance to repent, though he sought it with tears.


Main Topic:

Talk about our new years resolutions, goal, etc.

What the World needs more of! (5 Stars)

by Upcold

I look forward to this podcast every week. I live in NW MN and we always have a distance to drive to get to anything, especially work. I use this podcast to get my week ready and make my 40 minute commute enjoyable. You are truly doing God’s work as faithful Christians. If only more people were educated about guns and even more importantly following Jesus our society would make much more sense. Onward Christian Soldiers!

God,Guns and Chuck Norris Jokes (5 Stars)

by MamiyaPhotog85

I have listened to a few episodes and have loved the content. I was looking for a podcast that covered these two topics and this one fit. I would like to see more God content in a devotional and prayer context. The daily verse is good just want more. I hope to see more hunting context in the future. Not a big fan of the Chuck Norris jokes, just never have been, I guess I’m an odd ball like that! Keep up the great work, and may God bless you in this journey!

Weekly Bible Verse:

You Must Be Ready - Luke 12: 35-40

35 “Stay dressed for action and keep your lamps burning, 36 and be like men who are waiting for their master to come home from the wedding feast, so that they may open the door to him at once when he comes and knocks. 37 Blessed are those servants whom the master finds awake when he comes. Truly, I say to you, he will dress himself for service and have them recline at table, and he will come and serve them. 38 If he comes in the second watch, or in the third, and finds them awake, blessed are those servants! 39 But know this, that if the master of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have left his house to be broken into. 40 You also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”

Wish List:

  1. I ran across a Gun I found a few weeks ago

  2. I also saw something to put on my long term list: ATN TICO-Series thermal clip-on They had it on DVOR a couple of weeks ago cheap and I almost whipped out the credit card. Then my brain kicked in and said you’ll sleep in the dog cage you buy that without clearing it with the wifey.
