Episode 76: I Don’t Do Paperwork!

In continuing with our series, the guys look at another obstacle that Millennials can face when wanting to go into missions, “The Myth of Instant Specialization.” The world tells us to only contribute in a way that perfectly aligns with our skills, dreams, or passions. This mentality is a major roadblock to radically serving God. The regulars discuss the importance of having a servant heart and a willingness to “pay your dues” and how this ultimately leads to real contentment and joy.

Don’t Tell Me What to Do

Living radically for Jesus has never been easy. Throughout this blog series, I have unpacked some specific obstacles for millennials entering into a life of radical obedience to Christ. I will try to wrap things up by addressing a barrier that is arguably the most problematic of them all, and it’s this: many millennials fail to follow Jesus radically because they are unwilling to submit to institutions and the leaders that run them.

In this series, you’ll get to travel to the past, when the regulars were all together at the Steiger International Center back in October 2017. They discuss some of the unique roadblocks that Millennials face in trying to live a life of radical obedience, and how they seem to experience a particular difficulty in entering the mission field. In this first episode they talk about the fear of commitment, and how many times Millennials want to go from experience to experience without actually fully giving themselves to anything.

Brian "Head" Welch joins the guys on the podcast once again. They discuss all that God has been doing through Brian after the Korn shows, how Steiger has been able to partner with him in ministry, and the time he pranked Luke right before a seminar in Poland. Unfortunately, there is no random story from David, but this episode is full of laughter, good times, and inspiring stories of God's power!

Is social media ripping apart society? According to former Facebook exec Chamath Palihapitiya, it is. The guys look deeper at the subject of social media and the negative and positive affects it's having on our culture. While all of that might sound like a serious discussion, there is plenty of rants and banter that you will not want to miss, including another random story by David that involves him getting confused for a woman… again.

Luke, David, and Ben discuss an interview with the hip-hop artist, Logic, who expresses his surprise that his suicide presentation song “1-800-273-8255” has made a difference in people’s lives.

They dig into the causes of said surprise, the shortcomings of his solutions, and how Christian artists, of all people, should have a clear message, given that they have the truth.

Plus they give a shout out to Canada

All the regulars are finally back together again! With Luke bringing his diplomatic sensitive side to the conversation and Chad talking for days, what else do you need?

In this episode, they discuss the demise of U2, the effect that fatherlessness is having on our world and how apparently white christians don’t get care about morality.

Think that sounds crazy? Well that’s not all, in David’s random story he tells of the time his band was labeled as a Satanic group in the newspapers.

I Don’t Dig Wells!

God desires to use Millennials to change the world, but as with every generation, they face unique roadblocks to living in radical obedience, and they seem to experience a particular difficulty in entering the mission field. In my previous blog posts in this series, I addressed two significant reasons why: fear of commitment and the need to instantly specialize.

In this post, I would like to look at a more fundamental barrier - the fear of the very title itself.

While Luke is hanging out in Russia, Ben, David and Chad try something new... they bring in the buzzer! For each topic discussed, they have 8 minutes to answer before the buzzer goes off and it’s time to move on. They talk about some difficult subjects, including the excessive consumerism in the USA, whether or not Christians should be casual about alcohol consumption, and the continued downfall of celebrities that are being accused of sexual harassment.

Why is AC/DC in the title you may ask? Well, listen to David’s Random story and you’ll find out!
The regulars are finally all back together! With Billy Graham recently turning 99 years old, they celebrate and discuss the amazing ways God has used him in his ministry and bring up the question of whether or not his model for preaching the Gospel is still effective today. David shares not one but TWO random stories and Ben gives an official salute to our listeners in Chile.
