Let us contend for the Christian faith. When the author Jude penned these words in the Holy Bible there was the need for the church to contend for the faith that was delivered to the saints. Here we are, more than two thousand years later, facing that same danger. The need for the saints to contend is probably as great as it has ever been. The inception of this podcast is to do the work of contending for the faith...the Christian faith. *Have an ear to hear what the Spirit is saying to the C ...

In today's episode, the guys discuss how women should submit to their husbands. This is a topic which makes many people feel uncomfortable, but is a legitimate question for many Christians. Many people write this topic off completely due to today’s culture. However, when the church becomes a reflection of the culture, we are in big trouble. Submiss…
 
In today's episode, the guys discuss having childlike faith and Jesus’ words in Matthew 18:2-4, “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” Jesus said this in response to the disciples arguing about who would be the greatest in the kingdom, which is a relief because the disciple…
 
In today's episode, the guys discuss spiritual gifts and how to discover yours. The Lord gives us gifts that are imperishable and irrevocable for the purpose of His kingdom. Our culture is enamored with the whole theme of purpose, but very few things indicate greater purpose than when God gives something. He gives us spiritual gifts for and with a …
 
In today's episode, the guys discuss national tragedies and how Christians should react to these situations. As a culture, our world is news-fanatic and it’s in our sin nature to want to hear about the bad news. Social media and news outlets built an algorithm that fires us up in anger. They have figured out how to tap into our sin nature and make …
 
In today's episode, the guys discuss communion and how this practice is extremely central to faith. They talk about how communion is a sacred doctrine and how this sacrament symbolizes a recognition and renewal of a covenant with Him. Communion is also viewed differently in various denominations of faith. In Catholicism, they believe in transubstan…
 
In today's episode, the guys discuss how to experience personal revival. Personal revival, E.Z. explains, is gained by coming back to the things that put you in the place of understanding that Christ is the center of it all. In this state, a person has integrated Christ into every area of their lives rather than living by compartmentalization. This…
 
In today's episode, the guys discuss how to handle criticism and correction. Though the word “criticism” often comes with a negative connotation, we are reminded that criticism can be constructive, too. When it does come our way, the very first thing we should do is slow down and consider the source. Coming from a loving friend or family member who…
 
In today's episode, the guys discuss how to reach those who have strayed from the faith. The majority of people who have “backslidden” actually had a false conversion to begin with. This does not refer to the times in which a Christian struggles with his faith. There are many, unfortunately, who profess to know Christ but really do not. The longer …
 
In today's episode, the guys discuss the English writer, John Bunyan. His most famous book, The Pilgrim’s Progress, has been printed 250 million times. He was born in 1668 in Elstow, England. Married at 21, and was brought to Christ through the Christian books his wife brought into their marriage. He recounts the many overwhelming temptations he fe…
 
In today's episode, the guys discuss how we can witness to our family and close friends. Often, the people closest to us are the most challenging to share the gospel with. When new believers want to begin sharing the gospel, they should not begin by focusing on the sins of others, but rather by repenting for their own sins first. It is by owning up…
 
This is the final instalment of Ray Comfort’s devotional on Initiative. It is true that you can receive a word from God to step out in particular ways, such as when Ray and his family left New Zealand to come to the United States in 1989, but when it comes to sharing the gospel, we already have the command from God in the Great Commission. When you…
 
Ray Comfort continues his exhortation on Initiative, today speaking of his efforts to write a book that ended up becoming a best-seller, and later even turned into a movie! God also supplied the needs for a circulation ministry that would eventually become Living Waters. Before he became a Christian, Ray would never have thought to do many of the t…
 
Often, we are hindered by the thought that we must sit and pray over an idea before acting on it, but Ray Comfort shares the scriptural principle that when we trust God and the power of His message, we need not fear to act in order to serve him. Looking at the story of David vs. Goliath, he says that, when we see an opportunity to glorify and serve…
 
In today's episode, the guys discuss King Charles III in light of the upcoming coronation. Before jumping into the conversation, they clarify that their intention is not to promote any particular eschatological view, but rather are focusing on what people are saying in regard to this topic. The world seems to have an insatiable appetite for royalty…
 
In today's episode, the guys discuss the Trinity. Part of knowing God is knowing the Trinity. People often think of the Trinity as a box to check rather than diving into learning about the details of it. Part of becoming a Christian is knowing the beauty, goodness, and glory of God. We can do this when we know God as the trinitarian He is. It can b…
 
In today's episode, the guys talk about two very important topics: baklava and Mormonism! Understandably, they spend most of their time on Mormonism, which is one of several cults that arose in the wake of nineteenth century revivalism in America and continues to try to wedge itself under the umbrella of Christian groups/denominations. The Mormon c…
 
In today's episode, the guys discuss tips for healthy communication. To begin, they each share the areas in which they find communication most difficult. When it comes to disagreements, it is most important that we exercise understanding in the perspective of the other person. Without understanding each other, it’s nearly impossible to ever find a …
 
In today's episode, the guys discuss how to know God’s will for your life. Of all the things Christian struggle with, this topic is likely at the top of the list. We all want to know God’s will and understand what He has in store for our lives. There is one extreme in which we feel that we need to seek out God’s will in everything, but when we are …
 
In today's episode, the guys discuss the marvels of meditation. Christian meditation is a lost art form in our journey to become more like our Savior. Today, our society has an understanding of meditation that is mostly eastern and includes the idea of clearing your mind and becoming one with yourself. All throughout the Scripture, however, prayer …
 
"Blessed are those whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. Blessed is the one whose sin the Lord will never count against him." -- Romans 4 NIV God's forgiveness of our sins is conditional. God requires us to forgive others of their wrongdoings against us in order for Him to forgive us of our sins. It is in the contract. Forgiven…
 
In today's episode, the guys discuss the evangelist George Whitefield. Whitefield was born in Gloucester, England in 1714 and died in 1770. At age 21, he was converted while studying at the University of oxford. Along with John Wesley and Charles Wesley, he was part of the Holy Club. For 5 years, Whitefield sought after salvation and became nearly …
 
In today's episode, the guys discuss loneliness. Statistics show that loneliness is likely to increase a person’s risk of death by 26%, is as bad for your health as smoking 15 cigarettes per day, is worse for you than obesity. Loneliness and social isolation also put individuals at a greater risk of cognitive decline and dementia later in life. To …
 
In today's episode, the guys discuss the passing of Ray’s treasured friend and partner in the gospel: his beloved dog, Sam. The guys talk about grief, loss and how to weather the storm through the grace of God. Sam was a fluffy, white dog that would ride on a bike wearing red sunglasses. Many people would approach Ray because of Sam, and that would…
 
In today's episode, the guys discuss what it means to walk in joy. To begin, they clarify the difference between happiness and joy. While happiness is fleeting and comes from circumstances, joy is objective and transcends circumstances. When Heaven is the prime object of our rejoicing, it is impossible for anything to steal our joy. A perfect examp…
 
If you forgive those who sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive you. But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins. --Matthew 6:14-15 Blessed is the person whose sins are forgiven. --Psalm 32:1 We want mercy for our sins but are unwilling to show mercy. God is concerned with our inner life. He is concerned …
 
In today's episode, the guys talk about envy and jealousy, as well as how to overcome them. Both of these sins, which relate to the sin of covetousness discussed in a previous episode, lead from what may feel like a relatively non-threatening start to all manner of mischief and further sin. In order to deal with them and the bad fruit they lead to,…
 
In today's episode, the guys discuss the Kingdom of God. Many people either misunderstand God’s Kingdom or ignore it altogether. However, the idea of Kingdom is pronounced by the first chapter of the New Testament. A good starting point for understanding the Kingdom is to ask ourselves why Jesus lived. The most common subject throughout the gospel …
 
In today's episode, the guys talk about suffering and the question of why God allows suffering to occur. This question is one of the most common objections raised to Christianity, and it entails a logical breakdown, as suffering is not about the reality of a creator, but rather indicates that something is horribly wrong with the created order. The …
 
In today's episode, the guys discuss the Great White throne judgment of God. They talk about how God is actually very judgmental because He holds us humans to high standards. God is a good and perfect judge, and He will give out wrath and condemnation for unbelievers. Our culture today says that judging others is wrong and most people don’t want to…
