God and Guns is great, I can't think of a better mashup of topics for a podcast...unless maybe you added bass God, guns, and monster bass...haha. I simply wanted to let you know that I support what you're doing and wanted to voice my encouragement. I believe that there is true wisdom in many of the things discussed on the podcast and  feel confident that prayer goes into each episode.

So keep up the good work and keep me in mind to be a guest co-host someday (maybe a fun contest idea). Matthew Busby


Hey Troy! I enjoyed this show even though I've never hunted. Eating hog was something I was curious about since everyone makes them seem like varmints and say they carry disease, but good to know you can eat them and its ok if you choose.

On another note I had a more important issue to address. In this podcast you make reference to the story of Job. Without question we agree that in this story the devil comes to God. Satan's intentions are to break the most faithful man by any means God will allow. It is an amazing story. However, you make the comment that "The devil must always get permission from God" for things to occur in our lives. I disagree with that statement and thought I would share why, maybe other listeners can think about it more on their own. The assumption that God gives permission for all obstacles in our life does not fit. The world is full of sin not because of God's permission, but of His absence. We are given the freedom to choose our destiny. We walk by faith and His word, but not all things are of Him. Can you imagine telling a little girl she was molested because He allowed it, or to the thousands of people the were mutilated in the Holocaust, or purged in African villages it could stop as soon as God wanted it too. God is all knowing and powerful, but most of what happens on earth is not because of His choosing, but the choice of humans Not include God in their life.

I'd be interested to hear how other Christians feel. Thank you and keep up the good work!

I understand your point, and I agree with you that we are responsible for the sin in our life and its consequences. As we can agree we are in a fallen world evil and full of wicked people. Yet as we also know, God is in control. He has a plan for our lives as it is written in  If we are not walking in a relationship and are living as the lost, then I agree with Paul when he said examine ourselves.

I understand that I may have done a poor job clarifying that when I meant was attack, to say where we have done no discernable act to bring about the circumstances we have to deal with. What I should have said is if we are a child of God's walking in a relationship with him and we are thrown into chaos then come under a perceived attack, not to assume it is from the devil. I reference Proverbs 3: 5-6 5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. 7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.

As with Job the description of Job was he was in a right relationship with God and acceptable and thus blessed by God. However because it glorified God that Job was made to suffer it still happened. Not because the devil had free reign, but because through that struggle Job showed himself totally reliant upon God.

I go to the verses 1 Corinthians 10:13 where we are told that this is a limit placed upon our temptations and that we are given the ability to flee. It is the process of sanctification. Luke 22:31 31 “Simon, Simon, behold, Satan demanded to have you, that he might sift you like wheat, 32 but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again,strengthen your brothers.”
