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.

In His service

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.

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

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.”

How do you tell the difference in a baptist and a catholic in a liquor store. The Catholic will talk to you.

Listener Feedback: Hey Troy & Doug, Just want to start off by saying you'll be glad to know you've picked up a fellow Kentuckian who listens to the podcast. I'm way across the state in southeastern KY.  I love the show. I listen to it often at work and it's always nice to hear from other Christians who own guns (being a Christian gun owner myself). Great show! Keep up the good work! Sincerely, Matt Barnhill 

Just listened to ep 52 and heard you talking about older shows. I wanted to listen to the "prepper" and "Church Carry" shows, but they aren't available on iTunes. Are they going to be reposted in the future? Peter Wiktorski

 Weekly Bible Verse

The Parable of the Persistent Widow 1 And he told them a parable to the effect that they ought always to pray and not lose heart. 2 He said, “In a certain city there was a judge who neither feared God nor respected man. 3 And there was a widow in that city who kept coming to him and saying, ‘Give me justice against my adversary.’ 4 For a while he refused, but afterward he said to himself, ‘Though I neither fear God nor respect man, 5 yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will give her justice, so that she will not beat me down by her continual coming.’” 6 And the Lord said,“Hear what the unrighteous judge says. 7 And will not God give justice to his elect, who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long over them? 8 I tell you, he will give justice to them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?”

NRA Armed Citizen Grandmother fights off shotgun-wielding robber, The Shreveport Times, Shreveport, La. 01/06/14 63-year-old Elzie Pipkins was at home in Shreveport, La. when an intruder armed with a shotgun forced his way inside the house. Once inside, the intruder ordered Pipkins’ granddaughter to fill a bag with valuables, while Pipkins begged the criminal to leave with the money in her purse. Pipkins eventually led the intruder to a safe where she keeps some change and a handgun. Pipkins opened the safe and offered the change to the intruder, at which point the criminal took a hand off his shotgun, giving Pipkins an opportunity to retrieve the pistol from the safe and fire it at the robber. The home invader was struck once in the chest and fled before collapsing a block away from Pipkins’ home. Following the shooting, Pipkins made clear she did not relish shooting the criminal, stating to a local news outlet, “Just $55 in coins, and he lost his life, Lord Jesus I wish the young people today would just think, go to school, get an education and a good job and buy what you want... Don’t try to take from someone who has worked all their life and still doesn’t have nothing to give.”

Weekly Bible Verse:

Matthew 25: 34-46 (KJV)

34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? 39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. 41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

Dirty Harry Smith & Wesson Model 29 *Info below provided by Wikipedia

The Smith & Wesson Model 29 is a six-shot, double-action revolver chambered for the .44 Magnum cartridge and manufactured by the U.S. company Smith & Wesson. It was made famous by — and is still most often associated with — the fictional character "Dirty Harry" Callahan from the Dirty Harry series of films starring Clint Eastwood.

The Model 29 was offered with 3", 4", 5", 6", 6½", 8⅜" and, later, 10⅝" barrel lengths as standard models. Other barrel lengths were available either by special order from Smith & Wesson's Custom Shop or custom built by gunsmiths. The 5" barreled variant had a full length under-lug. Finish options available included a highly polished blued or nickel-plated surface.

 Harry Callahan: I know what you're thinking, punk. You're thinking "did he fire six shots or only five?" Now to tell you the truth I forgot myself in all this excitement. But being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world and will blow your head clean off, you've gotta ask yourself a question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?

Listener Email:

Joe says: Troy, great show.I loved the fact that you and EJ identified the fact that the concealed carry class are not training. I regard it like drivers ed, the classroom material is covering descriptive responsibility. When you get in the car with the instructor you are getting basic information on handling.The real training is after you get you license. This is exactly what I will be telling my students in ILL when I start teaching in Nov. Great job with your first solo.  GOD BLESS


Weekly Bible Verse:  

1 Peter 4: 1-6 ESV Since therefore Christ suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves with the same way of thinking, for whoever has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, so as to live for the rest of the time in the flesh no longer for human passions but for the will of God. For the time that is past suffices for doing what the Gentiles want to do, living in sensuality, passions, drunkenness, orgies, drinking parties, and lawless idolatry. With respect to this they are surprised when you do not join them in the same flood of debauchery, and they malign you; but they will give account to him who is ready to judge the living and the dead. For this is why the gospel was preached even to those who are dead, that though judged in the flesh the way people are, they might live in the spirit the way God does.
