Challenging the Culture with Truth

with Larry Kutzler and Esteemed Guests

CitySites Urban Media presents a new Podcast every Friday. We want you to hear from people who are making a difference, and we hope our Podcasts bring you a perspective that isn't taught in today's Christianity. Be sure to listen to our latest Podcast every Friday!

Is Christianity Dangerous? with Chris Heeb

Is Christianity Dangerous?  If you answer that question in terms of what Jesus taught, of course it is. ‘Deny yourself, pick up your cross and follow Me’ is counter cultural to what we hear in the world around us today. The world is afraid of people who live according to what Jesus taught … it is a threat to them in exposing their darkness. When you expose the darkness of sin you become public enemy number one to evil. Dangerous, you bet … truth is always dangerous. In this episode, we unpack the idea that Christianity is dangerous.

The Seven Churches with Jay Christianson

Jesus stood among the seven churches mentioned in Revelation Chapter 2 and Chapter 3. He had ascended into heaven about 60 years earlier, and it was His first interaction with these churches. Now, these churches were getting a report card from Jesus. It was obvious that He was not happy with what He saw. Dr. Jay Christianson of HighBeam Ministry and I talk about these churches, with an appeal to hold fast and to listen to what the Spirit is saying to these churches. What message can we extract for us today?  Visit HighBeam Ministry

On Idols, Part 2 with Jay Christianson

In our previous episode,  Dr. Jay Christianson of HighBeam Ministry, and I had a conversation about idols and defined them as anything subtle or blatant that comes into our lives and takes us away from keeping God first. Our culture is a good example of how things can easily be innocent at first … until that innocence turns into a deadly idol. In this episode, we continue our discussion about idols and how we can keep idols from taking over our lives. Visit HighBeam Ministry

On Idols, Part 1 with Jay Christianson

In the Old Testament, one of the constant struggles for Israel was idols. Everywhere they looked there was idol worship, and the culture had a lot of influence on God’s people. Nothing has changed much since those days. Idols are everywhere in our culture, and it’s hard not to get involved.  In this episode, Dr. Jay Christianson of HighBeam Ministry and I talk about idols and how they interfere in our lives … often unnoticed by us. This is Part 1 on this theme, and next week we will conclude this theme. Visit HighBeam Ministry

From Lamb to Lion with Jay Christianson

Jesus is seen in the Scriptures as Creator, Redeemer, and Judge. In this episode, we’ll explore these ideas. In Revelation 6, there is a phrase, “the wrath of the Lamb,” meaning that the Lamb that was slain on the Cross has now come to judge the world. In other words, from Lamb to Lion. This same Jesus who is the Lamb of God will return as a Lion to bring conclusion to this world, and present to His Father His Kingdom purchased by His Blood. Dr. Jay Christianson of HighBeam Ministry is my guest and we talk through this theme. You will find our conversation enlightening. Visit HighBeam Ministry

Is There Hope in the Land? with Walt McFadden

One of the questions Jesus asked about His return is will He find faith on earth when He returns? His question makes one think that faith may be a hard commodity to find when He returns. Hope is the same kind of commodity. Can hope be found in this world without God?  Dr. John McArthur opens this episode with some insights on why the church exists, and George Barna tells us about the loss of church attendance since the COVID-19 pandemic. Join me and my guest, Pastor Walt McFadden from Cityview Church in South Minneapolis, as we talk about finding hope in the land. Visit Cityview Church

Honesty, Integrity, and Character with Chris Heeb

In this episode, I talk with a guest who has been on my Podcast in the past, and he is one of my go to people when I want an honest answer on questions of practice in the church today. His honesty about attending church is a wound that I believe needs to be healed, but he is not alone in his story. His story could be told thousands of times from people whose personal wounds have been inflicted by a Christian leader. We present a story of how trust can be eroded by dishonest leaders who present the wrong image of Christ.  We leave the Podcast with the message that Honesty, Integrity, and Character are the goals of any ministry whose message is Christ. We are hopeful by talking about what destroys trust in the church helps those who have experienced the pain of disappointment by their trusted leaders. Visit Chris Heeb Ministry

Barking Dogs, Part 2 with Jay Christianson

This is the second of a two-part series about the silencing of the church on issues we need to be pushing back on.  Isaiah 56:10 talks about leaders who aren’t being vocal on moral or cultural issues that are toxic for society as a whole. Those who are silent are like dogs who cannot bark or warn of pending destruction, based upon the ideas and movements we are now facing every day. In this episode, my conversation continues with Dr. Jay Christianson from HighBeam Ministry. Visit HighBeam Ministry

Blind Spots with Shawn Morrison

Everyone has blind spots. They are hard to identify because they have to be pointed out to us. For some, therapy has been successful because their blind spots are identified and a plan for change is developed. Most of us continue with our lives without identifying our blind spots … even when these blind spots bring us trouble, we continue to ignore their presence.  In this episode, I have a conversation with Reverend Shawn Morrison about Blind Spots, and how they manifest themselves in our lives. Listen in and find out how to identify your Blind Spots. Visit Shawn Morrison

Barking Dogs, Part 1 with Jay Christianson

Today, there are voices in society that are louder than most, and some voices are so soft that they don’t even exist. In this episode, we talk about the Barking Dogs of Isaiah 56:10 that warn on issues that are harmful or dangerous to our culture. Dr. Jay Christianson is my guest. Recently, and we had a conversation about the silence of the church and our lack of barking or warning on issues being promoted perpetually in our society. We would like to bring you into that conversation here and now. Dr. Jay Christianson is the founder and President of HighBeam Ministry. Visit High BeamMinistry

The Change Agent with Damon West and Nathan Unruh

Every once in a while, you run across a story about a person whose future is ruined.  Such was the case with Damon West, he was to serve a life sentence for crimes he committed.  God got ahold of his life in prison, and we tell the rest of the story in this episode.  Damon, Nathan, and myself hope you will pass this along to people you think would benefit from Damon West’s testimony. Listen in as Damon shares his remarkable story … stay with it until the end, you won’t regret it. Visit Damon West Visit Nathan Unruh

Omission of Conviction with Chris Heeb

It has been reported that 98% of Christians have never shared their faith with anyone. The late Pastor Adrian Rogers said that if you are not sharing your faith, he questions the reality of a personal salvation. So, in this episode, I talk with Chris Heeb about the reality of sharing our faith, and what prohibits us from freely sharing the Gospel with our close relatives, friends, and co-workers? We have concluded that unless we develop a strong conviction about heaven and hell, we probably won’t share too much with anyone. The big question is simply … are we convinced it is our job to bring people to Christ and if so, how well are we doing? Jesus gave us one assignment: “go into all the world and make disciples.”  Listen in and enjoy our conversation. Visit Chris Heeb Ministry

What is Next? with Tom Parrish

What is next? Good question. Larry talks with Pastor Tom Parrish about the future. Too many times the issues set the pace for how we feel, and we wonder how can it get much worse? Tom is a veteran pastor who knows how God can change the person even in the midst of the great peril that is in our world. Visit Tom Parrish

On Marriage with Tom Parrish

Tom Parrish has counseled hundreds of couples who struggle in their marriages. Tom takes a no-nonsense, simple approach to helping these couples … he turns the conversation back to Jesus. Hear Pastor Tom Parrish’s five simple questions he asks all couples when they come to him for marriage counseling. This is a must listen to episode! Visit Tom Parrish

Discernment of Truth with Larry Kutzler

Not everything that is spoken in the name of Christ is from Christ. I have often wondered how easy it is for a persuasive personality to twist the ideas of Scripture into spiritually sounding teachings that are lies. Remember, just a little lie is still a lie, and persuasion is not conviction. Persuasion is a distraction to what is real and is often full of bias and personal intentionally. For example, Bernie Madoff was a persuasive personality that convinced people to invest with him, only to find out he stole over 65 Billion Dollars from the clients who trusted him. Christian teachings are persuasion, and your discernment must be trained to know the difference between persuasion of men and the conviction of God. Our conclusion is to read the Word of God, and stay in fellowship with people you trust who do have a solid Biblical worldview. Listen in as I unpack the Discernment of Truth.

What is the Rhythm of Rest? with David Diers

The Sabbath is designed by God for us to rest from our normal routine, and focus on God’s meaning for life. In this episode, my guest talks about the meaning of rest, and how rest can be a deliberate practice of enhancing your life. David Diers is a telecommunication expert and public speaker on a theme he has developed called, ‘The Rhythm of Rest,’ and he explains his five principles that will bring you a greater sense of meaning … if practiced.

Rekindling the Church with Stephanie O’Brian and Kale Johnson

It is a statistical fact that more churches are closing than are opening every year. Congregations are getting older, and most churches do not have a contingency plan to keep their ministry going, once the congregation gets small enough that it cannot continue. One church in NE Minneapolis decided to be forward thinking, and decided to find a younger church to merge with, to keep their ministry legacy alive in their community. In this episode, I talk with the new pastor of this merger and find out their story of rekindling the church in their neighborhood. Visit Mill City Church

Antioch with Walt McFadden

We have been talking for several months about Urban Ministry with Pastor Walt McFadden. He has been helping us understand the changing face of the city, and how that affects how we develop ministries that meet these changes. In this episode, we look at Antioch, the first city that believers in Jesus were called Christians. We also look at how this city church was not only multicultural, it also was missional in sending out Paul and Barnabas to plant new churches. Visit Walt McFadden

The Jesus Revolution with Rabbi Ed Rothman and Chris Heeb

The Jesus Revolution started a movement of God that changed the church forever. One little-known fact is that the Messianic Movement (Jews coming to Jesus) started because of the Jesus Revolution among the Hippies in California. Jews were coming to the Lord and eventually they began Messianic Congregations to attract other Jews to Jesus. Today, there are over 300 such congregations in America. In this episode, I talk with Rabbi Ed Rothman and Chris Heeb about this Messianic Movement of God.

Repentance with Shawn Morrison

Repentance is a foundational teaching in the Christian faith. It represents the first stage of accepting God’s grace in Jesus Christ. Some think repentance only happens when we come to faith, but in reality, repentance is a lifelong discipline. Many have defined repentance as a complete 180 turn in either attitude or behavior. Repentance is going in opposite direction. In this episode, join me and Rev Shawn Morrison as we talk about how repentance enhances our lives. Visit Shawn Morrison

Ordinary People with Sam Anderson

It is said that God loves ordinary people because he made so many of us. In this episode, I talk with a man who is challenging the status quo of drug addiction. He is making a difference in Central Minnesota. Sam Anderson is the Director of the Brainerd Minnesota Adult and Teen Challenge and he is my guest. Sam is making a difference because he knows that ordinary people can do extraordinary things when God is placed first in their life. Join me and Sam Anderson as we talk about ordinary people. Visit Sam Anderson

Urban Ministry 3.0 with Walt McFadden

For some time now, Pastor Walt McFadden and I have been talking about Urban Ministry. The populations of the world are moving into urban areas, creating a need for more space with affordable housing. City planners have been building more low-rise buildings and six stories all over the city, to try to accommodate this need. These same city planners are designing our transportation needs more around alternative ways of travel, such as scooters and bicycles. How does all of this influx of more people and a changing city design affect Urban Ministry? In this episode, we continue with our conversations on this theme with Pastor Walt McFadden of Cityview Church in South Minneapolis. Visit Walt McFadden

Radio and the Gospel with Phil Kvamme

Christian radio has been an extension of the church ever since it began broadcasting in 1921. The Christian radio stations in the United States total over 1600 stations from coast to coast. This medium is an invaluable resource of encouragement, inspiration, teaching, and family friendly entertainment. In this episode, I talk with Phil Kvamme, a veteran broadcaster who has been on Christian radio for over 44 years. Phil has a lot to say about radio and the Gospel. Visit Phil Kvamme

Connected Families with Stacy Bellward

One of the ministries that I am familiar with is making a big difference in the lives of parents. Connected Families began its ministry in 2002 with Jim and Lynn Jackson who co-founded this unique and successful outreach to parents. In this episode, Stacy Bellward from Connected Families is with me. We will learn about how this ministry is helping parents navigate the murky waters of busy schedules, the culture, and the influences our children face every day in our modern life. Connected Families have many avenues to help parents, such as online training, podcasts, coaching, and counseling … all done through a Biblical lens. Listen in and enjoy Stacy’s story. Visit Connected Families

The Reality of Abortion with Liz Toedter

It was a Sunday morning, and it was an unusual poignant sermon on how evil has permeated our institutions. The pastor referred to a recent passage of a strongly-worded law providing safe abortions in our state. The pastor was not happy with what the legislature did, so he decided to end his sermon in stating that abortion is wrong. Immediately following the end of the sermon, a young lady got up and told her story about abortion. She was honest and direct about her experience, and her story is both heartbreaking and reassuring. In this episode, I talk with her as a follow up from that Sunday morning.

Honor with Shawn Morrison

Our theme in this episode is honor. What is honor? Why does it seem to be missing in our American culture? Honor is a selfless characteristic that is defined by esteeming a person or persons, or even a nation because of who they are or what they stand for. The Bible tells us we are to honor marriage because of its value, we are to honor parents because they are parents, and we are to honor God because of His sustainability in this world. Join me and Rev. Shawn Morrison for this fascinating conversation on honor. Visit Shawn Morrison

Generations with Chris Heeb and Jay Christianson

The Bible speaks about how important it is to teach and reach the next generation with God’s truth. The Old Testament speaks about how the Feasts of the Lord were celebrations where God was recognized for what He did for Israel in the past. All generations were encouraged by these commemorations, and ensured that the next generation would continue with the truth of God. In the last decade or so, the church in America has lost ground in reaching the next generation. We see the results in the riots, in the disrespect, in the murders on our streets. I believe it can be attributed to the failure of the church to reach the next generation with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In this episode, we talk about how the next generation must be challenged with the claims of the Gospel or we will eventually lose relevance in our society as an institution of truth. Visit Chris Heeb Visit Jay Christianson

Evil in Our Institutions with Walt McFadden

Everywhere I look today, people are talking about how bad our society is. It’s more than just the crime statistics; it’s how our institutions are adapting the ideas and practices of the woke crowd.  More and more are caving to the pressures to be gender neutral, abortion supporting, and cancel culture oriented. These changes are not only in our corporations and government, they are also showing up in more and more churches today. I pray that Americans wake up and know their freedoms are at stake. In this episode, I talk with Pastor Walt McFadden about the darkness that is creeping into all aspects of American life. Visit Walt McFadden

Vision with Pastor Matt Frey

I love to talk with people who have great vision. Pastor Matt Frey was born Jewish and had nothing to do with Jesus until becoming a young adult. Once Matt decided that Jesus was the Messiah for the Jews, his life changed. He was headed for medical school when Jesus got ahold of his life and now he is a pastor with a vision to reach Jewish people. His vision is to plant a church that will accent on presenting Jesus as the Messiah to Jewish people. In this episode, I talk with him about his decision to follow Jesus, and about his vision to reach the Jewish community.  Visit Matt Frey

See the Good with Zach Windahl

Every so often there comes a fresh new voice in the publishing world. A voice that brings clarity, honesty, and relevance to a complex world. I love when things are simple … simple ideas, simple design, simple explanation. Much of this world is so complex that many people still have their clocks on their DVD player blinking. Times are changing, they always will, but they don’t have to be confusing or complex.  Author Zach Windahl clarifies a simple proposition to all of us. He asks us to ‘See the Good’ in a new book he’s published that brings a fresh new approach to living your life. Zach is my guest in this episode, and you will enjoy what he has to say. Check out Zach’s book!

Putting God First with Larry Kutzler

One of the most important messages that must be taught today in the church is the message of putting God first. Culture pressures us to put the emphasis of this world in place in our lives. That emphasis is never on God … it’s always the fulfillment of personal achievement or pleasure. This episode is about putting God first in all areas of our lives. He is at the top of every list.  Listen in and be challenged!

Urban Ministry 2.0 with Walt McFadden

Cities have been with us since the beginning of time. In the early days, cities were where all the commerce and military strength resided. Ultimately, these cities collectively turned into states and then nations. Cities continue to grow and in the next decade 70% of the world’s population will leave in cities. How will that impact how we live? What will be the challenges we face? For the church, we already face some of these challenges, and the need to do ministry differently and more effectively will only increase. It’s been a joy discussing the urban ministry thinking, theology, and practicality of urban ministry with an urban pastor, Walt McFadden. He is my guest in this episode, and he explains how the church needs to prepare as cities change and grow. Visit Walt McFadden

The Unseen Enemy with Walt McFadden

Since becoming a Christian, it has been my belief that Christianity is a spiritual force that pushes back the darkness of evil. Many in our world today do not think there is any evil … just human beings acting out their passions and desires. Yet, the Bible teaches there is a dark force here on earth … the Unseen Enemy, Satan. Satan would love you to think he doesn’t exist, that way he operates in the shadows. The Apostle Paul taught us that it is this force that we fight against and not flesh and blood, and the modern church often overlooks this. In this episode, my guest, Pastor Walt McFadden, unpacks the idea of this unseen enemy in the context of urban ministry. Visit Walt McFadden

Does God Have Preferences? with Shawn Morrison

Here’s my problem. People who believe in God may do so without the help of what the Bible says about God. The problem lies in believing in a God that may not exist but is made up in the imagination of the person believing. The Bible gives us clear teaching on the nature of God … who He is and who He is not. For example, people will say God is love, which is true, but what is left out of that statement is that God also hates. Hard to grasp, right? Yet, that is what the Bible says. Another question that is often overlooked or not addressed is, “Does God Have Preferences?”  Most people would say no … God is no respecter of persons, so He is neutral on showing any kind of preference to people. Well, that’s our topic today on the podcast, “Does God Have Preferences?” My guest is Shawn Morrison, a familiar voice, and we have a challenging conversation about this theme. Visit Shawn Morrison

Unseen Influences with Walt McFadden

Too often, we focus on the wrong things when it comes to influence. We think it’s the political process that’s to blame, or other institutions, including the church as the culprits for our problems.  In this episode, I talk with a pastor about the unseen influences the Apostle Paul mentions in Ephesians 6. Pastor Walt McFadden is my guest and we talk about the unseen influences in our lives. Visit Walt McFadden

Urban Ministry with Walt McFadden

Our cities are changing. There is more density in cities due to all the new apartment complexes being built and new innovations in building multi-use centers. With more people working from home, and the move to get more people into apartment living, how does that affect ministries in the urban core? What must the church think about as cities continues to change?  In this episode, I talk with Walt McFadden, an urban pastor, about Urban Ministry and he shares some insights about how the church needs to adjust to our changing cities. Visit Walt McFadden

Appetites with Shawn Morrison

Everyone knows about appetites, we usually have them about food, but appetites can be defined by what we desire to make us happy. Americans especially like to pursue happiness, and they often try to achieve that happiness by satisfying appetites of pleasure, conquest, or pursuit. Today, Shawn Morrison from Good in the ‘Hood, joins me to talk about appetites and how appetites will never satisfy the pursuit of happiness. Visit Shawn Morrison

Men and Insecurity with Walt McFadden

I share another conversation with Pastor Walt McFadden about men and insecurity. Pastor Walt has been going through a series on his podcast called ‘Thinking Out Loud’ on men and their wounded hearts. This episode focuses on the torment of insecurity that most men face in their lives. Visit Thinking Out Loud

John 3:16 with Shawn Parks and Chris Heeb

In our previous episode, we talked with Randy Zembel about John 3:16, and how to use this Verse as a witnessing tool to help people understand God’s love for us. In this episode, we are joined by Randy’s colleague, Shawn Parks, who furthers this conversion. Shawn shares some stories about how effective it is to use this Verse in bringing people to Christ. Once again, my co-host for this podcast is Chris Heeb.

John 3:16 with Randy Zembel and Chris Heeb

John 3:16 is by far the most familiar verse in the Bible, and most people have heard of it. However, in this episode we talk with Randy Zembel who will tell us how to use this Verse in a way to tell people how to know they have eternal life with Jesus. You will find our conversation insightful, and my co-host for this podcast is the familiar voice of Chris Heeb.  

Connected Families with Jim Jackson

In all of my radio/podcast career I haven’t found a more engaging person as Jim Jackson. He, and his wife Lynn, co-founded a ministry known as ‘Connected Families’ where they help parents deal with parenting issues.  In this episode, I talk with Jim about one of the major aspects of their ministry which asks the question, “What’s going on in you.?”  This self-awareness technique is a fundamental question that needs to be asked when conflict or misunderstanding is being experienced. Before we can get to the root of conflict issues, we need to examine our hearts before going into battle with another adult or child. Jim explains how it works in parenting, but it can be applied to leaders everywhere as they lead people. Visit Connected Families

The Soul of America with Shawn Morrison

With the midterm elections coming up at the end of the year, it is important for Christians to vote. Christians have one of the largest voting blocks in America. Christians need realize they have to exercise their right to vote. Many believers do not think it is important whether they vote or not since God will have His way no matter what. Ultimately, God will have His way, but our job is to protect the right in America for Christians to preach the Gospel. We have seen our religious rights slowly erode, and often it’s because we are asleep in the church. This episode is about the importance of voting to protect our religious rights in America. Visit Shawn Morrison

I Never Knew You with the Truth Barista

One of my day jobs includes producing podcasts for other ministries. One of my long-standing clients is Dr. Jay Christianson who is the imaginary Truth Barista. The Truth Barista is a podcast that deals with the truth of the Gospel as it relates to modern life. It is staged in an imaginary coffeehouse where the Truth Barista and the dishwasher by the name of Larry get into Bible discussions that are relevant to everyday living. So, I decided to share this Truth Barista podcast with you in this episode, hoping you will become a fan of The Truth Barista. Visit The Truth Barista

Toxic Masculinity with Walt McFadden

It’s no secret that men are struggling today to find their role and their place in society. Even men who have a good job and quality of life wonder what kind of role do I now play in society. Men have been tagged with all kinds of terms, one of which has stuck more than others and that is, “Toxic Masculinity.”  There is some truth to men who do not follow God, or live by how He designed men to live … this can and will become toxic because it becomes a self-centered life. In this episode, I talk with Pastor Walt McFadden about men and what the Bible says on how men are to relate to females in their lives. Visit Walt McFadden

Spiritual Narcissism with Larry Kutzler

In this episode, Larry deals with Spiritual Narcissism, a condition that is rampant among Christian leaders who are leading Churches and ministries. As you can guess, most narcissistic leaders are gifted, and Larry explains to us that it takes discernment to figure out if the leader is a servant of God or a narcissist in disguise.

Our Freedom is Eroding with Glenn Beck

Everyone knows our world is out of control. We hear commentaries about it every day, especially from conservative radio, that our government is going in the wrong direction. Glenn Beck from The Blaze Radio had a broadcast recently where he talked about a speech delivered by a Holocaust survivor who equated what she experienced in Germany in WW II to what she is seeing in America today. The recent raid on a former President’s home was a wakeup call to Americans about the erosion of their personal liberties and freedoms.  In this episode, I play a segment of Glen’s radio show and make commentary based on what is heard. You will find this insightful.

The Wounds of Men with Walt McFadden

Periodically, I join my friend, Pastor Walt McFadden, on the theme of ‘the wounds in a man’s life.’  Pastor Walt has been teaching and discipling young men in his church trying to get the heart of what is hurting men today. What he has discovered is that men have wounds in their hearts from their fathers, from culture, and from relationships that have injured them in some way.  In this episode, we talk about some of those wounds and how bring those wounds before Jesus for healing. Visit Walt McFadden

The Cult of Western Christianity with Chris Heeb

I’m sure this episode will stir up some controversary. Why? Because, for some time, I have thought that the western church has some serious flaws in terms of practice and theology. Now, it is true, no church will be perfect … that is not what I am addressing in this podcast. What I want to do is to create some self-awareness that our structures or systems in the church could be the reason we are seeing more moral failure in the church. The open testimony of a young girl who tells how she was spiritually abused at the hands of family and leaders of her church. The abuse was all about control. When I first listened to her, I thought she was a disgruntled person who had an ax to grind, but after listening to her several times, I realized that I had experienced some of the same conditions in my life. I hope this podcast will make you think through what is being said in the church, and pray for God’s mercy to bring changes to needed areas of the church. I remember the message of the ‘Reformation’ that brought some needed changes to the church at that time, and I think it is needed again to return to the integrity of the Gospel. Visit Chris Heeb Ministry

Love God ... Hate Evil with Shawn Morrison

Tolerance is the modern battle cry of the culture. There are no restrictions when it comes to being you. No more moral restrictions of past generations … we are now the generation of free exploration without societal restriction. Evil is at the heart of much of our freedom, and society is being primed to accept it.  Psalm 97:10 speaks to us about our love for God and our hatred for evil. God cannot co-exist with evil, and there is no middle ground between the two. God wants us to abandon all aspects of evil if we want to follow Him. Today Shawn Morrison, the founder and Executive Director of Good in the ‘Hood, joins me to process this theme. Visit Good in the ‘Hood

The Woundedness of Men with Walt McFadden

Men are struggling today. Many of them don’t know what role they play, and some have even become more effeminate in their dress and appearance just to appear more gender neutral.  It seems that females are more prominent in almost every industry these days, and men are feeling more isolated than ever before. Generally, men have few friends and have a hard time relating to other men. This CitySites Podcast talks with Pastor Walt McFadden about the woundedness that many men feel today throughout society. Visit Walt McFadden

The Coffin with Neil Saltzman

What motivates a man to build his own coffin? That’s the question I asked a man who told me that he has built his coffin for his funeral. Neil Saltzman has been a carpenter, entrepreneur, and former business owner who decided it could be a great conversation piece with a practical purpose. Neil tells his nine grandkids the story of how one day he will be in the coffin that he built. However, the story he tells is not morbid or sad … it is a reminder of how death will come to everyone, but in Jesus, our life continues into eternity with God. The coffin is just a reminder that if Jesus is our Messiah, we will be raised to live with God in eternity. In this episode, I talk with Neil about his faith and his coffin.

Maintaining Our Faith with Larry Kutzler

As we all know, our world has changed forever since COVID 19. We are only now discovering how this pandemic has influenced our lives forever. Other changes such as the transgender movement and the abortion legislation have all made inroads into our lives. Yet, with all these changes the one change that should never change is our faith in God. Faith has always been the target of evil, and it is a never-ending process to get us to give up on God for the pleasures of this life. In this episode, you’ll find my commentary helpful in maintaining our faith.

The Jewishness of the Gospel with Trevor Rubinstein

The Jewishness of the Gospel is often overlooked in our modern church. We seem to forget that as Gentiles we were grafted into the Olive Tree of God. The Jews had all the covenants God made with humankind, including the New Covenant. We call the New Covenant the New Testament which tells the story of Jesus, who is the New Covenant. Yet, in spite of all the evidence that the Jews who gave us the Messiah, the Jews who gave us all the Scripture that we read, and the Jews who were the first believers in Jesus after His resurrection, we still do not recognize the Jews for their contribution to our faith.  Why? Well, it may be a complicated answer to that question. In this episode, my friend and Jewish believer, Trevor Rubinstein, who works with Chosen People Ministries, helps us process this theme.  Visit Chosen People Ministries
