Cooper Stuff Podcast

Cooper Stuff Podcast

Cooper Stuff Podcast is an in depth look at what drives John Cooper (lead singer of Skillet); a commentary on culture from a traditional Biblical paradigm: Has modern culture stolen your world view? With all the screaming voices, who do you trust? How much have you been subversively influenced? Cooper Stuff aims to point out subtle and not so subtle influences on culture with a traditional, Biblical world view/emphasis... while boiling complex issues down to simple language.

Alisa Childers joins the show to discuss her new book, “The Deconstruction of Christianity.” This episode is packed full of extremely important material. We discuss the differing definitions of the term “deconstruction,” and why Alisa believes that Christians should use the word “reformation” instead. These can be two very different concepts. Today's episode is so relevant and anyone who has been confused about deconstruction will ...

Pro-lifers may face more than ten years in prison for protesting abortion, while other violent protesters aren’t even arrested, or are set free without bail. Why is this? Today we talk about the arbitrary rule/law of totalitarian regimes versus the static moral law of God. We also talk about “Christian nationalism” and the incredible insidious statements made by the Christian Left including William Barber, Russell Moore, and Presto...

On this episode, we play several videos that will undoubtedly surprise many people. Last week we discussed whether or not churches/pastors should get political, and whether or not that’s even a possibility. This week, a myriad of examples popped up that support my thesis: The Christian Left who accuse Christian conservatives of being politically motivated reveal themselves to be hyper political in shocking and unbiblical ways.

Should pastors stay away from politics? I understand the notion, but is that possible? What if there’s so much progressive propaganda that lies seem like the truth, and then pastors teach morality based on faulty information? Today we read some headlines from the last ten days where the truth has been revealed, and the moral implications are stunning.

Rapper Lil Nas X releases his blasphemous video for the song “J Christ.” Christian rappers speak out against it and call him to repentance. This leads to a discussion of what it means to live in moral relativism; to not be able to distinguish right from wrong, good from evil. Most importantly, we discuss Isaiah 5.

Rapper Lil Nas X says he may try Christian music phase. Two famous Christians reply publicly with very different responses. These two responses are extremely telling about what we can expect in the church and in the culture this coming year. The split in the American church is reaching a breaking point. We all need to be prepared so that we can pray and ask God to give us wisdom and teach us how to be a light in a dark world.

One question that I get asked often is “Why are you so political?” In fact, I think that confusion over politics is one of the greatest challenges to the church today and is causing massive division. This episode is the simplest explanation possible for why we cannot escape politics. Secondly, I discuss how secular social justice has twisted true justice, turning it on its head. Many Christians have fallen for this and have fought ...

Democratic strategist James Carville appeared on the Bill Maher show and claimed that Christians—and/or Christian nationalists—are the biggest threat to America….”worse than Al Queda.” He made many other claims that are a brilliant way to illustrate (1) That Christianity is truly under threat in America. (2) Christian nationalism is used to mean “traditional Christian.” (3) The left and the right mean very different things by the w...

Today we have Cooper Stuff replay about the definition of Wimpy, Weak, and Woke. The increasing conflicts in America today are often referred to as “culture war.” But what is truly happening is a war between gods – the living God and the god of Man. Wimpy, Weak, and Woke uncovers the philosophies behind utopian dreams that become dystopian nightmares, and presents a positive vision for how we can thrive and flourish. The false prom...

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you had a wonderful time with your family. Today we (1) announce our Black Friday sale. And (2) I share personal thoughts and concerns about the surprising backlash I’ve received about my book. To be honest, the backlash isn’t even about my book, but the book title! The state of our culture is even worse than I thought. Join me for a frank conversation.

Today we have comedian JP Sears join Cooper Stuff! You know him by his hysterical YouTube videos, which have millions of views. But what you may not know is his story, his message of saying no to cancel culture and peer pressure, and his stance for liberty. Also, we talk about his new children’s book “Chomp Chomp Chomp” releasing with Brave Books. This is a genuinely great and interesting conversation that you don’t want to miss.

Only 1 day until my new book, “Wimpy, Weak, and Woke” releases! As the events of the last week unfold, things are bizarre and seemingly inexplicable. But there is a simple answer to the madness! Today, we discuss why these evil and seemingly diverse events are tied together by the matrix of oppression. The world’s philosophies have infiltrated the church and because we weee ill-equipped to argue against them, it has left many confu...

We cannot be blessed by God if we continue to live in disobedience. God is calling His people to obey, and when we do, we will prosper. In a world suffering under increasing delusions, the light of Christ will be a beacon.

Cooper Stuff is honored to have Kirk Cameron on the show for the first time. Kirk is an actor, author, producer, and revolutionary for the gospel. He’s here to talk about his new children’s book, but today we talk about much more. Is there a need to build christian culture, and if so, how do we do that? What should our attitude and posture to the world be? How do we love and pray for enemies, while standing strong against the darkn...

God told His people that He would bless them and take care of them if they keep His commands. Today, on Sword and Shield, we talk about the blessings of obeying God. We cannot earn our salvation! But God commands a blessing on this who keep His Word.

This week I went semi-viral with my comments about Christian music’s “Dove Awards,” in which three provocateurs showed up. On todays episode, you’ll probably notice that I’m fired up due to the absurd silence of Christian platforms. Where is the solidarity from the industry, or from the Christian platforms? They are nowhere to be heard. The truth will set us free, but much of American Christianity believes that the truth is impolit...

On today's episode of Sword and Shield, we read from Proverbs 30:5. Do you sometimes lack faith in the Word of God? Do you often run to other sources of help before running to God? Today we discuss how to find refuge in God by trusting in His Word.
