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.

--Tim

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.

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.”

Talk about This weeks gun activity/hunting/ conceal carry/ practice cleaning, News etc…

Comedy Corner: In light of the rising frequency of human/grizzly bear conflicts, the Montana Department of Fish and Game is advising hikers, hunters, and fishermen to take precautions and keep alert for bears while in the field.

"We advise that outdoorsmen wear noisy little bells on their clothing so as not to startle bears that aren't expecting them. We also advise outdoorsmen to carry pepper spray with them in case of an encounter with a bear. It is also a good idea to watch out for fresh signs of bear activity. Outdoorsmen should recognize the difference between black bear and grizzly bear poop. Black bear poop is smaller and contains lots of berries and squirrel fur. Grizzly bear poop has little bells in it and smells like pepper. "

Listener Email: Troy, Thanks for clearing up my email from last week and giving some feedback. Its good to hear other Christian's thoughts on topics we don't always agree on. I just came from church and started listening to your last show talking about Simon Peter. That is the same person our preacher talked about here in Belgium. He talked about Peter as an example of a real person we can all relate too. Simon displayed signs of faith and faltered at the same time. He was the only disciple to try and walk on water, he told Jesus he would never leave him at the last supper (he would), never deny him (he did X3), after Jesus's death he jumped out of the boat and swam to shore when he saw Jesus and talked with him while the other disciples rowed, and he was even told to basically shut up and listen to Jesus by God on the mountain with the 2 other disciples. Simon Peter's life showed great faith and how human every man is when we do not have faith, listen, or follow God's plan for us. Warner Paredes

Weekly Bible Verse Ephesians 6:18-20 (ESV) 18 praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, 19 and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak.

Comedy Corner:

  • A couple of Illinois’ hunters are out in the woods when one of them falls to the ground. He doesn't seem to be breathing, his eyes are rolled back in his head. The other guy whips out his cell phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps to the operator: 'My friend is dead! What can I do?' The operator, in a calm soothing voice says: 'Just take it easy. I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead.' There is a silence, then a shot is heard. The guy's voice comes back on the line. He says: 'OK, now what?'

  • A  man and a friend are fishing one day at pond near the road. One of the guys is about to cast his lure when he sees a long funeral procession on the road next to the pond. He stops in mid-cast, takes off his cap, closes his eyes, and bows down in prayer. His friend says, "Wow, that is the most thoughtful and touching thing I have ever seen. You truly are a kind man."  The man then replies, "Yeah, well we were married for 35 years."

  • Two men went bear hunting. While one stayed in the cabin, the other went out looking for a bear. He soon found a huge bear, shot at it but only wounded it. The enraged bear charged toward him, he dropped his rifle and started running for the cabin as fast as he could. He ran pretty fast but the bear was just a little faster and gained on him with every step. Just as he reached the open cabin door, he tripped and fell flat. Too close behind to stop, the bear tripped over him and went rolling into the cabin. The man jumped up, closed the cabin door and yelled to his friend inside, "You skin this one while I go and get another one!"

Weekly Bible Verse:

By Faith; Hebrews 11: 1-13 (ESV) 1 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. 2 For by it the people of old received their commendation. 3 By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible. 4 By faith Abel offered to God a more acceptable sacrifice than Cain, through which he was commended as righteous, God commending him by accepting his gifts. And through his faith, though he died, he still speaks. 5 By faith Enoch was taken up so that he should not see death, and he was not found, because God had taken him. Now before he was taken he was commended as having pleased God. 6 And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. 7 By faith Noah, being warned by God concerning events as yet unseen, in reverent fear constructed an ark for the saving of his household. By this he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness that comes by faith. 8 By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to a place that he was to receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. 9 By faith he went to live in the land of promise, as in a foreign land, living in tents with Isaac and Jacob, heirs with him of the same promise. 10 For he was looking forward to the city that has foundations, whose designer and builder is God. 11 By faith Sarah herself received power to conceive, even when she was past the age, since she considered him faithful who had promised. 12 Therefore from one man, and him as good as dead, were born descendants as many as the stars of heaven and as many as the innumerable grains of sand by the seashore. 13 These all died in faith, not having received the things promised, but having seen them and greeted them from afar, and having acknowledged that they were strangers and exiles on the earth.

Points:

Gospel: By Faith we put our hope in Christ alone. By faith not works. Examples given of faith in the text are: Abel, gift was accepted, Cain’s was not. Enoch, faith was such God brought him to heaven without tasting death. Noah, to build an Ark when it had never rained before, and kept that faith for an estimated 55 to 75 years while he built the Ark. Abraham, to go and claim his land. Sarah, to believe she would have a child. Is your faith active and real: or cultural, familial, traditional. Encourage them to think about it!
