What is Gnosticism? Pastor Walt tells us that it is the belief that the flesh is evil and the spirit is good. So, why talk about a subject like Gnosticism in the church?

Pastor Walt continues Thinking Out Loud on the Woundedness of Men. Real men are supposed to be strong, courageous, competent, and masterful. Real men are not supposed to show emotions, just keep it all bottled up inside. Real men don't eat quiche. Most men don’t have any male friends, they don’t know how to be a friend to other men. Most men don’t know how to engage other men … they just talk about sports or politics but nothin...

In this episode, Pastor Walt shares that it's not a man's world anymore. Men seem to be less like men, and men have been emasculated for several decades. Pastor Walt asks why would a man want to be more effeminate? This is Satan’s strategy. His strategy is to confuse and counterfeit what God has created. Pastor Walt tells us that men are actually looking for clear direction. Men who are leaders in the church need to give me...

In this episode, Pastor Walt provides us with an in-depth history lesson on socialism and communism and helps us understand that the prelude for both systems were brutal, oppressive governments.

He discusses that socialism has to get rid of God at some time, because...

Immigration is a troubling and difficult issue for Christians in America. Pastor Walt thinks out loud and gives us a very easy solution to the immigration issue, but this solution is too difficult for politicians. Different countries have different responses to their immigration issues, and the United States is not tyrannical to illegal immigrants. Over the years, Presidents have dealt in different ways with America’s immigration i...

What is discernment? In this episode, Pastor Walt thinks out loud and helps us understand what discernment is. He explains that discernment is the ability to differentiate between what is of God and what is not of God. There are two sides … God and Good, Satan and Evil. Satan actually presents himself as a righteous entity, so how do we know when we’re on the right side of truth? You’ll find that Satan takes the truth of God and tu...

More and more people everywhere are accepting homosexuality. Today, more than half of Christians agree with same sex marriage. Why is this such a big issue for the church? History shows that homosexuality has not been good for any culture. Why should the church be concerned? Because of moral rot in society. There will come a tipping point in our culture, but the voices sounding the alarm now will not be around when that tipping poi...

You think your good. I’ve got bad news … you are not good. God created everything and said it is good. Then God created man and said it is very good. And then right away, man messed everything up. Most people think they're pretty good. That’s the kind of message they hear in church … that they’re so good. We want to be told we’re good, we don’t want to be told we’re a sinner. That's one of the key problems with the church t...

In this episode, Riley Carpenter talks about the horror of The Cross. The heart of Christianity is The Cross of Christ. The horror of The Cross is that it is a horrific event, and it was done to Christ … for us. Christ suffers greatly at the height of the horror, and His suffering was for us. Do you think you can perfectly obey the Law of God? You can do good deeds, but if you don’t believe in Jesus, you are cursed. What are you tr...

In this episode, Pastor Brandon Porter talks about the prophecy of Simeon. In the Gospel of Luke, he writes about Simeon. Simeon was righteous and devout and was eagerly waiting for the Messiah to come and rescue Israel. God had revealed to him that he would not die until he had seen the Lord’s Messiah. The Spirit led him to the Temple, so when Mary and Joseph came to present the baby Jesus as the law required, Simeon was there. He...

Pastor Walt asks are we taking Scripture seriously? The Word of God is the only rule to direct us on how we can glory Him. To fear God and obey God is the whole duty of man. The Bible was taught differently in the early church than taught now … if taught at all. So, if the Bible is taught, what is the expectation of the listeners? In today’s church, there is no expectation of the listener, no expectation of transformation. The earl...

In this Thinking Out Loud episode, Pastor Walt talks about passing the vision … passing the vision to the next generation. Jesus passed the vision to His disciples. The church needs succession plans, plans to pass the vision of the Gospel to the next generation.

In this episode, Pastor Walt thinks out loud about little sins. Little sins in the hands of leaders can be big sins. Some pastors don’t follow the Scripture mandate, we need to have leaders who follow Scriptures. We may say that we’d do or not do a certain thing … until we get in the pressure cooker. Then we compromise … if you compromise in one area, you’ll compromise in other areas. It's time to come clean about your little s...

Pastor Walt thinks out loud about mentorship. Wisdom can be attained from older Christians, and older Christians need to grow in wisdom. Older women need to mentor younger women, and older men need to mentor younger men. Everyone in the church is to be a disciple, to stop just drinking it in and start being a teacher. We are to walk in Jesus’ steps. The church needs to lift up their eyes and be aware of who needs mentoring. We are ...

In this Thinking Out Loud episode, Pastor Walt McFadden talks about the Gospel. What does Pastor Walt mean by the Gospel? The Gospel is God’s plan for eternity. Most pastors are free lancing, coming up with their own version of Christianity. Society has taken the direction that we believe what we want, and this has slipped into the church. But the Gospel is a specific message and a specific path to God. We can’t deviate from the me...

Pastor Walt thinks out loud on being a disciple. Churches have a problem with walking their talk … the cure is discipleship. We are on a mission from God … to go forth and make disciples. Discipleship requires shepherding the flock, guiding the flock, training them in the Gospel, raising them up, so they in turn become disciples of Jesus who will then also make more disciples of Jesus. This is not to control others, it’s to educate...
