This week's episode was a dream come true for me. I had the chance to talk with Crawford Loritts, a pastor and evangelist with an incredible legacy.  Crawford also happens to be the author of one of the best leadership books I've ever read (you can see some of my other leadership book recommendations here), and we get the chance to talk a bit about it as well. We talked through his experience leading Fellowship Bible Church for 15 years, processed the effects of deconstruction on the church, and how we can impact the culture around us as Christian leaders.  I know you're going to appreciate what he has to say, whether you're a church leader or a leader in a church.Special thanks to Serve.HQ for sponsoring this week's episode!HighlightsSimplicity and Clarity - 1:34 Crawford Lorrits' background Becoming a cheerleader for leaders.

Closing out The Affluenza Antidote series, this week we looked at the last part of Paul's explanation of the antidote that can cure our hearts of affluenza.If you want to move the heart of God, if you want to capture His attention, if you want to show Him love, then give yourself--your time and resources--doing something for the people that are made in His image. Like Paul, Jesus instructs us to let eternity motivate our generosity--to look past this present world and think about laying up treasure in the age to come.Jesus teaches us to view our time and money in light of eternity, because when we do, we will loosen our grip on our money and it loosens its grip on us.

Is Jesus really The Only Way?  In a world that celebrates unlimited choices, how do we embrace the power of limitation?In the final installment of our series, Only The Church, Pastor Ben Lee gives us the key to combat too many choices. Choose Jesus — He is The Only Way. As a people we often associate options with freedom. By hearing that there is Only One option, it can appear limiting. But when we fully understand the reality that Jesus is The Only Way, The Truth and The Life, we receive full freedom in Christ.Barry Schwartz says, “… the paradox of choice suggests that having too many choices actually limits our freedom.” Hearing Jesus is the ONLY way, is the most encouraging thing for us as believers. In His grace, we receive the redemption of Jesus so that we can be in relationship with God. Because Jesus is The Only Way, God fulfills His redemptive plan through us, Only the Church, by bringing heaven to earth.Catch the full series:Week 1 - We've Only Just Begun - Pastor Adam Smallcombehttps://youtu.be/rV9IwBYqKRIWeek 2 - Only The Church - Pastor Keira Smallcombehttps://youtu.be/oqnsDARZ-yMWeek 3 - If Only - Pastor Adam Smallcombehttps://youtu.be/YSX7PqsVysw

Citizenship. Today, Pastor Michael is having Duncan Crook deliver the message.  Duncan recently required his US citizenship and is using that experience to compare it to being a citizen of God's kingdom.  What would it look like to live as a Kingdom citizen in your workplace?  What specific actions would a Kingdom citizen do?  What did Jesus say his followers would be like? In the book of Mark, Duncan discusses the parables in Mark and followed up with Michael's lesson last week, on “Getting Dirty”.   Duncan drills down a bit on the parables in Mark's gospel and explains to us that we are citizens of His kingdom and what Jesus expects his citizens do be like.  Duncan exhorts us to publicly identify with Christ, you should be faithful to listen and apply the Word and you should grow spiritually.  Jesus' parable was about an oil lamp on a stand.  Your light will not shine brighter by yourself.  We can light up the world around us and God brings light to what is hidden.  And we should show that we are believers and people should see the light of Christ in us! Kingdom citizens should also eagerly study God's Word.  God will honor the person who eagerly receives His message.  How can we be better listeners to the Word?  Prayer before going to church or bible study.  Ask the Lord to prepare your heart for His message.  Join church bible studies and devotions.  Don't listen as a critic, looking for things to argue about.  Think about what you can learn from teachings.  And take notes! Lastly good Christians are good citizens.  Ultimately it all comes down to if we have surrounded to God.  It's not about you, or anyone else.  It's all about God! (CSB Baker Illustrated Bible Study Notes) 4:26–29. The final two parables once again liken the kingdom of God to seeds, the first parable focusing on the process of growth. A farmer plants a seed and then goes about life as usual (4:26–27a). The seed grows imperceptibly, and even the farmer “doesn't know how” (4:27b). The seed possesses a power of generation independent of the farmer, who can be absent and even ignorant, yet the seed grows (4:28). Humanity, likewise, goes about business as usual, but the kingdom of God is present and growing, even if small and unobserved. The kingdom is not dependent on human activity; indeed, apart from sowing, the only human activity noted in this parable is waiting in confidence that, in God's time and power, the gospel will grow into a fruitful harvest (4:29). Verses can be found today in Mark 4: 21-29, Phillipians 3: 20, John 8: 12, Ephesians 5: 8, Romans 1: 16, 2 Thesselonians 3: 10, Deuteronomy 6: 4, Matthew 7: 2, Luke 6: 38, and Proverbs 11: 1.

Pastor Adam Smallcombe digs deeper on the limiting perspective of “If Only…” The truth is, when we disqualify ourselves, we discredit God's wisdom. If only the Church would realize the full power we have in Christ Jesus… If Only we understood we are chosen by God, not by merit but by His grace upon grace.

Be Good Dirt! Today, Pastor Michael is back in Mark and we find Jesus avoiding the crushing crowd that His ministry has created of late.  Folks around the land are flocking to hear His message and Jesus actually has to go out into a boat to preach to them, it's gotten so bad. Jesus is preaching one of His most famous parables, the parable of the sower.  This parable is about a seeds thrown into four different kinds of soils: 1—on the road, where it becomes food for birds, 2—falling on rocky ground, where it cannot develop roots, 3—falling into thorny ground where the thorns chock out the growth and finally, 4—falling onto good soil where it yields a crop. What we find in this message is that it's more about the soil than the seed itself.  And the parable is about how one sows the word.  If on the road, the similarity is that of falling on unprepared people and Satan can snatch it away.  If on rocky soil, it shows people who initially receive the word with joy but it's received superficially and doesn't last.  If sown within thorns, it represents worries and the world, choking out spiritual development and truths.  But if sown in good soil, if the word is heard in the heart, it produces fruit. (CSB Baker Illustrated Bible Study Notes) The people who represent good soil, by contrast, attend to the gospel with earnest and ongoing engagement. The mark of a true disciple, an insider, is to “hear the word, welcome it, and produce fruit” (4:20). Those who genuinely hear and receive the mystery of the kingdom of God will, by the grace of its generative power, produce a harvest beyond belief. Verses can be found today in Mark 4: 1-20.

What is Family? Today, Pastor Michael is letting Nick Dowdy have the reins today.  Nick is tackling a verse in the Book of Mark that he and Pastor Michael both felt led to lead a discussion on, notably on being a part of the family of God. Jesus' mother and brothers were standing outside, looking (‘seeking') him and other's were telling Jesus that they were trying to find him.  Jesus used this opportunity to reply to those around him, “Who are my mother and brothers?”, referring to those around him, doing the will of God, that are also his brother and sister and mother.  Jesus was looking beyond the temporal family and looking at his spiritual family.  Jesus was teaching that  physical relationships were not the proper access to Him. Doing the Father's will gives proof that one is properly related to Jesus. (CSB Baker Illustrated Bible Study Notes) Jesus's mother and brothers stand outside seeking him (3:31–32); that is, they intend to assert a claim on him. Ironically, those who would be expected to be on the inside (his own family and the Jewish religious establishment represented in the scribes) misjudge Jesus and remain outsiders. For Mark, there are only two positions in relation to Jesus: those who stand on the outside with false assumptions, or those unnamed and unexpected disciples “sitting in a circle around [Jesus] . . . [who do] the will of God,” who are his true “brother and sister and mother” (3:34–35). A song was referenced in the message today and cannot be distributed via podcast due to copyrights.  We urge listeners to look for Chris Renzema's “Adonai” at their favorite music source!

Are Some Sins, Unforgivable? Today, Pastor Michael is continuing his study in the Gospel of Mark.  Our subject matter this Sunday is, unforgivable sin.  Everyone has their list of super hard to forgive, almost "unforgivable" type of things we cannot tolerate; we're not sure how we would ever get over it.  God's ability to forgive is greater than ours.  But is there something that God cannot forgive? Yet the Gospels mention the “Unforgivable” (Unpardonable) Sin.   Ultimately the Unforgivable Sin  is refusing forgiveness.   (CSB: Disciple's Study Bible Notes) Ultimately, all sin is against God. Sin against the Holy Spirit is serious because the Holy Spirit is the one who convicts us of sin. Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit cannot be forgiven. Conviction precedes repentance. Without the convicting Spirit, we cannot find forgiveness. Blasphemy against the Spirit is the willful and blatant act of attributing to Satan that which is clearly a work of the Holy Spirit. This terrible sin occurs when a person consciously rejects the truth, believing Satan rather than God. God will not forgive such blatant rebellion. The nature of the problem is debated. Has the heart become so hardened the person cannot distinguish good from evil or cannot repent? Or does God of his own free choice close the door to any possible repentance? Some have attempted to give a catalog of “unforgivable” sins, but the NT does not list any other sins beyond forgiveness. We must be cautious not to apply the doctrine in the wrong way. People sometimes fear they have committed the unforgivable sin. People who feel such a yearning for salvation may be sure the Spirit continues to work in their lives. Where the Spirit works, grace for forgiveness is available. Some people in desperation or anger shake a fist and complain to God. They are simply repeating the actions of many of the psalmists. They are not guilty of the unforgivable sin. The doctrine of the unforgivable sin is a warning against overconfidence and religious blindness, not of temporary wrongdoing. Verses can be found today in Mark 3: 28-30. The story above is also in Matthew and Luke.

Today, Pastor Michael is continuing his study of the book of Mark.  We pick up with Jesus' ministry expanding quickly and the disciples were, at this point, getting hangry!  Add to this, his family, from Nazareth, was at his point in his ministry, thinking he was quite crazy! The family couldn't get him to leave and there was another group that felt he was equally nutty; those were the scribes (the religious establishment of the day) and the Pharisees.  They did the most grown up thing they could do; they started rumors about Him. So what does Jesus do about it?  He called them together and talks to them face to face. Jesus goes into length with a message of how a house divided against itself cannot stand.  A kingdom divided cannot last.   He was using this to show that He was not using the power of the Devil to fight himself. However, let's put it this way:  the scribes and the Pharisees didn't quite catch the meaning of that parable! So for good measure, Jesus gives them another parable!  The parable of tying up the strong man before you can plunder his house.  Who is the strong man here?  The devil is the strong man.  The stronger man: Jesus.  Jesus has entered the strong man's domain, here on earth.  But Jesus will bind the devil and has plundered the devil's goods.  What are those goods?  Souls.  Jesus has come back to take the souls that he has divided our families, our churches, our nation. (ESV Study Bible Notes) Jesus uses two illustrations (parables) to show that the scribes' accusations are false: (1) if the satanic sphere of power were internally divided, then it could not stand (vv. 24–26); and (2) Satan must be bound before his sphere of power can be challenged (v. 27; see note on Matt. 12:29).

Teamwork Makes the Dream Work! Today, Pastor Michael is giving us a crash-course on the twelve disciples (apostles).   So who are the twelve?  1—Simon (renamed Peter) 2—James & 3—John (the “Sons of Thunder”—how cool is that!) 4—Andrew 5—Philip 6—Bartholomew 7—Matthew 8—Thomas 9—James 10—Thaddeus 11—Simon (the Zealot) and lastly (and for good reason, no doubt!) 12—Judas. Some had already become prominent at this point, some had not but Jesus was calling them to higher responsibility.   The list is given four (4) times in the New Testament and while a bit different each time, Jesus doesn't change up the roster.   There is always three (3) groups of four (4).  Seems like there were always three subgroups.  They are:  Team Fireball, Team Comeback and Team Shadow (Michael's summary, but darned good!). Team Fireball—Simon Peter, the leader of Team Fireball.  The most outspoken and active of all the apostles.  A fisherman by trade.  He was at the Transfiguration, Gethsemane, pretty much all of it.  Pete was crucified by the Roman emperor Nero.  James the son of Zebedeh, another fisherman, one of the Sons of Thunder.  A much quieter guy than Peter, but he was gutsy.  The first of the twelve to lay down his life, for the cause.  James showed that you didn't have to be loud…not all passion is loud!  John, the brother of James, the second most famous of the Disciples, after Peter.  John was closer to Jesus than any of the others, sitting next to Jesus at the Last Supper.  The heart of the team, if Peter is the mouth and James is the gut of the team.  The only one with Jesus when He was on the cross.  The only prophet that lived a long, full life.  John shows us that Jesus wants people with heart, not afraid to run away. The last member of Team Fireball, Andrew, is Simon Peter's brother.   Andrew wasn't as prominent as some, but without his willingness to share Jesus with his brother, we might not have had the Apostles as they are known.   Team Comeback—Each of them has something stacked against them.  Philip starts out the bunch, always asking questions, even asking Jesus, “Can you show us the Father?”.  The man had questions.   Jesus wants people that asks questions for the team. Bartholomew, also known as Nathaniel.  Came from a fairly comfortable family background.  The prejudiced one…he didn't feel like Jesus from Nazareth was the Messiah.  Jesus wants people that are willing to give up their assumptions!  Next up is Matthew, also known as Levi, the tax collector working for the Romans.  Not a super popular guy as a loyalist to the Romans, but he was not the man he was before.  Jesus changes lives!  Lastly, Thomas rounds out Team Comeback.  Thomas was also known as Didymus, both meaning twins, which points to Thomas was likely a twin.  Doubting Thomas is the name he's known the best for and it stuck!  Thomas' doubt melted away when Jesus appeared before him.  It's okay to have honest doubts!  Doubt is not a deal breaker, it's a motivation.   Team Shadow—we don't know that much about these guys, hence the “Shadow”.  We'll start with James, and we know almost nothing about this guy!  Never recorded as saying anything interesting enough to record.  We don't know a lot about him but the team couldn't have functioned without him.  Not a spotlight person but the team needs him.  Next up: Thaddeus, the ‘other' Judas.  Not the bad guy Judas.  We are more than the assumptions that people have of us.  Another Simon now shows up, Simon the Zealot. The activist, part of the political movement that wanted to get rid of the Romans, off the land.   Last up, Judas, the betrayer.  History's greatest bad guy!  Judas was eaten up with remorse after his betrayal, taking his own life.  Not everybody who is on the team is really “ON” the team.   The twelve were not the sort of people we would expect.  Different people, different personalities.  Where one was weak, the others were strong!  And they brought us the Good News of Jesus.  Team work, makes the Dream Work!

If you've been listening to the podcast for a while, then you've heard me speak to some incredible pastors who have led their churches through different tragedies and transitions. Navigating through a crisis is no easy feat. I know on our end, we've done some things right and we've done some things wrong. But through it all, we've had these experiences that we don't feel like we should keep to ourselves. That's why I'm grateful to Fred Gray, the executive pastor at Real Life Church. Fred and I designed a course called Leading Through Crisis. Our hope is to equip you with ways to lead through a crisis as healthily as possible, so you don't have to become one.Now, I'd love for you to check out the course. There are so many great resources available including how to address a national loss, how to work with the press, and the preventative measures you should take before a crisis ever happens. If you're curious and want a deeper dive into why we created this course, join my conversation with Fred Gray as we talk through our experiences leading through crisis.Special thanks to ServeHQ for sponsoring this week!HighlightsRusty & Fred remember their experiences leading through crisis - 2:38 How Fred started at Real Life Church The importance of having a healthy staff. Communicating well when a crisis occurs Preparation is Key - 14:17 How do you need to prepare for a crisis before it occurs? A bit more background about the Leading Through Crisis leadership course.

Many times Christianity will tell us "Just forgive and move on." Pastor Paul shares that anger is biblical and a natural - and important - human response to injustice. Paul also shares current events discussion about rightwing Christians who continue to believe in the lie that the 2020 election was stolen and how that reflects biblical promises when religion and politics marry one another. #TikTokPastor #evangelicalish #ReligiousRightReligiouslyWrong #PostEvangelical #PostEvangelicalPodcast #UnconventionalPastorPaul #UnconventionalPastor #GodIsNOTmadAtYou #MindRenewal @PastorPaul_TikTok #WellBeing
