Are you a servant to others? Are you compelled to serve because the living Spirit lives in you? The Christian man is a servant. “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits.

Episode 436 called “You are Soft” was our most responded to podcast—good and bad. After listening to it recently, I still stand on what I said, “WE ARE SOFT.”

Soft equals weak. SO, when I say soft, I mean we are weak. Which is why I wrote the book, “STRONG Men Dangerous Times”

People think Jesus was a pastor, I think he was more of a coach.
