DON’T BE A JUDGMENTAL PRICK | 018

In this episode, Sam is blindsided by a phone call from a pastor who used to serve with him in church, accusing him of being bitter, angry, and deceived, and telling him to take this podcast down. Sam is confronted with judgment from someone who hasn't been in his life for over 12 years. Listen in to find out how Sam handled the situation and how he challenges us all to look at this issue. Do you judge? Do you try to remove the splinter in your brother's eye and ignore the log in yours? It is time we look in the mirror and own our bullshit. It is time we get real and stop judging people for doing the exact same thing that we give ourselves a free pass on. “For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you.” ‭Matt ‭7:2 _________ Welcome to THE CHURCH IS BROKEN podcast.

Is SHE your KRYPTONITE or your SUPERPOWER?  |  043

As a man there is no greater source of POWER than when your relationship with your wife is aligned and in harmony.  And there is also no greater source of PARALYSIS when it is not.  This is because we are ONE with our spouse - a SPIRITUAL UNION created through the physical act of being "joined" to one another.  The mystery of marriage is profound and deep.  When it is on fire it activates our SUPERPOWER.  When it is floundering, it acts as KRYPTONITE.  Find out how I screwed up in my marriage in a major way by forgetting to take care of something so BASIC. _________ Welcome to THE CHURCH IS BROKEN podcast.

REJECTING GOD AND MAKING IDOLS OF MEN | 017

In this episode, Sam continues his discussion about corrupt leaders, pastors, and priests in the church, but uncovers the real problem - the people who follow them. In the book of 1 Samuel, God made it clear that by demanding a king, the people were rejecting Him and choosing idolatry. God desires a kingdom of priests who listen to His voice and follow Him alone, not a nation of people who obey and idolize men. It’s time to remove those we follow from the throne in our hearts and let God take His rightful place there. _______ Welcome to THE CHURCH IS BROKEN podcast.

WHO Is Teaching YOUR Kids  |  041

WHO are you allowing to TEACH your children spiritually and WHAT are they teaching them?  As parents we must understand that what our children learn about God and the Bible at a young age will have a significant IMPACT on their SPIRITUAL GROWTH throughout their life.  I want my kids to learn the stories of the Bible, but I do NOT want them to learn DOCTRINE and THEOLOGY, because ultimately, I want my kids to learn to live a life of FAITH based on REVELATION, not a life of SIGHT based on INFORMATION.  It may seem like a small distinction in what they learn, but the consequences can be significant. _________ Welcome to THE CHURCH IS BROKEN podcast.

One of the biggest lies he told himself - that most men are conditioned by society to believe - is that it was not ok to feel his feelings, that he needed to suck it up.

Scripture is NOT The Word | 013

In this episode, Sam explains how Christians have been misled by the synonymous use of the terms Scripture and “Word,” which has resulted in great misunderstanding, mishandling, and misuse of the Bible. In John 5:39 Jesus rebuked the religious people of His time for this same approach to the Bible saying “you search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these (Scriptures) that testify about Me, and you are unwilling to come to Me that you may have life.” The Word, or Logos in Greek, is God Himself in the person of Jesus, not the black and white letters of the Bible. Approaching the Scriptures with this understanding will shift you from using the Bible for more knowledge to using it as a doorway and access point to hearing His voice, the Voice of the living and operative Word of God. _____ Welcome to THE CHURCH IS BROKEN podcast.
