God's Creation

In the beginning, God created the earth and rested. Then God created Man and rested. Then God created Woman. Since then, neither God nor Man has rested.

Who Makes the Coffee??

A married couple were arguing who is making the coffee, the wife said that in the Bible it says that men should make the coffee and the husband asked her where it said that. The wife opened the Bible and said: "Right here in HEBREWS!"

Hey Troy

Enjoy your show, thanks for doing a great job along with Doug on bringing the Truth into our favorite activity.

I carry everyday and started carrying on Sundays about 3 years ago on a regular basis. I have had a permit for 19 years but didn't always carry in church. But lately I felt I should be a better prepared shepherd.

After attending a Sheepdog seminar, I realized I wasn't alone in my attitude towards protecting the flock.

If you still need someone to be on the panel feel free to call or write.

Subject: Encouragement and some possible advice Troy,

I just wanted to encourage you on this great podcast. I've been powering through all the shows for the past couple months, and I love all the various insights you have on Christian living and firearms in general.

One thing that I really wanted to write to you about is your struggle with your weight. It comes up occasionally in the show, and I just wanted to share my 'weight testimony'. I completely understand that you may not be interested in advice from an internet stranger, but I felt convicted to share since you often mention that it is a struggle for you.

I am around 6', and 2 years ago, I weighed around 230 pounds. Not too overweight, but I have always had that extra belly for nearly my whole life. 2 years ago, I learned about the keto diet. It basically flips everything you know about nutrition on its head in that fats are actually good for you, and sugar/carbohydrates are terrible. Following the diet, I lost around 30 pounds in the first 3 months, and because of how easy it was to maintain, I gradually lost 20 more pounds and kept that weight off for 2 years now. I now weigh around ~175lbs. This was from eating all the eggs, cheese, steak, and bacon I wanted, with minimal exercise. The absolute kicker is that all my blood work (cholesterol, triglycerides, glucose, etc) IMPROVED since changing to this lifestyle. My heart has never been healthier.

The reason why I am so passionate about this lifestyle is because the general public is so misinformed about nutrition in general (sort of like firearms). The media demonizes fats and praises the health benefits of whole grains when this is not correct. In any case, if you are still interested at this point, please let me know cause I would love to tell you more details and do not want to scare you away with a wall of text.

Ultimately, if you like bacon, eggs, and steak more than cake and brownies, then this lifestyle change is for you.

Hope you continue with the show, and I will be praying for you and your struggle.


Weekly Bible Verse

Proverbs 4:1-13 (ESV) Hear, O sons, a father’s instruction, and be attentive, that you may gain insight, for I give you good precepts; do not forsake my teaching. When I was a son with my father,  tender, the only one in the sight of my mother,  he taught me and said to me, “Let your heart hold fast my words;  keep my commandments, and live. Get wisdom; get insight; do not forget, and do not turn away from the words of my mouth. Do not forsake her, and she will keep you; love her, and she will guard you. The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom, and whatever you get, get insight. Prize her highly, and she will exalt you; she will honor you if you embrace her. She will place on your head a graceful garland; she will bestow on you a beautiful crown.” Hear, my son, and accept my words, that the years of your life may be many. I have taught you the way of wisdom; I have led you in the paths of uprightness. When you walk, your step will not be hampered, and if you run, you will not stumble. Keep hold of instruction; do not let go; guard her, for she is your life.

“Why do Shooters choose the targets they do”

Fort Hood Texas - 4 dead including shooter Fort Hood Texas - 2009 13 Dead Sandy Hook Elementary - 26 Dead Aurora Colorado - 12 Dead 58 Injured Columbine High School Colorado - 13 Dead and 27 Injured Virginia Tech Shooting - 33 Dead

Chris Kyle - American Sniper & Friend killed by PTSD Soldier

What do all of these have in common. Handguns are not permitted at any of these locations. Citizens can't protect themselves in these locations. Once the shooters are confronted with someone with a gun they take their own lives.

NRA Armed Citizen Armed homeowner fights off armed home invaders, The Bismarck Tribune, Bismarck, N.D. 03/31/14

Jeff Gegelman was at home in Golden Valley, N.D. when three men in a car drove onto his property, then knocked on his door. Suspicious, Gegelman retrieved a .22-caliber pistol and watched as the men returned to the vehicle, and then as two of the men returned to the house. The pair of men then forced open the door, at which point Gegelman leveled his gun at the intruders and told them, “You came to the wrong house today.” Gegelman and the home invaders exchanged fire, resulting in wounds to both Gegelman and one of the intruders. Following the exchange, the criminals fled, but not before Gegelman was able to record the license plate of the car they were driving. Police captured the wounded home invader short time later, as he was seeking medical attention. Gegelman has been released from the hospital, and has told a local news outlet that he intends to acquire “a bigger gun and more bullets.”
