We live in a country in which it cost more money to imprison someone for a year than it does to send them to college. This is disturbing when the majority of inmates are not exceptional threats to society they are just poor misguided souls in need of change. I also talk about the prison of the mind. Paradise is how you perceive it regardless of where you are at. I hope that you listen with an open mind and be set free today!
Another school shooting leaving 17 dead. As we try to wrap our minds once again around another tragedy, the question is continually raised, why? and what can we do? Faith without works is dead. James tells us if you give someone a blessing without helping them physically, what good is that? I do not have the answers, but we need to work together to bring about a reduction in the violence in our society.
What is it to be a Christian? Is it saying a prayer? Living a certain way to fit in with other "Christians." If you are a politician and quote verses to get votes, is that Christian? Maybe it is just simply being human?
Nate uses the teachings of Jesus so that we can live a life which is one of decreased self, and increased God.
Nate gets personal with his own struggles with his son. With his own pain as a father. How our perfect Father has been put through pain and suffering because of our rebellion. Yet God is love, the never ending love of the Father is beyond our understanding. It is time to except his love.
Nate has fun on this episode of The Backyard Preacher. Just hold on and enjoy the ride!
Nate talks about the power of the Word! Our words are more powerful than any of us realize. The ignorant speak life and death without any hesitation. Let us not be ignorant but use the power of the word to the glory of God.
As we leave 2017 and start 2018 we are living in the most divisive time that many of us have ever experienced. Left, right, liberal conservative, progressive, fundamental. What has divided us as Christians has been Jesus, but what will unite us will also be Jesus! Listen and be blessed!
I hope you get that big TV as we are in the season of greed. Is that what Christmas is all about? Nate explains a bit in his own way what Christmas is all about.
As Christians where is the country? Are we a bunch of closed minded dominionist? People who have it my way or the highway? Absolutist who do not think for themselves? Nate does not have the answers but I do know how to talk about some possibilities. My only hope is that Christians in America are not so willing to sell their souls for political power.
Nate talks about the huge increase in pay that corporations in America will receive if all goes as planned for the Republican party, in their efforts to pass a new tax bill. The old trickle down scam! Do you really think that corporations are going to increase your wage?
What is there really to be thankful for? Holiday stress, family with happy fake smiles living in homes they can not afford thankful for the bank to give out a loan. It seems like the most thankful people are the people with the least. Holidays are a high point in our lives. Days of remembrance in which should carry over all year long. Listen as Nate talks about Thanksgiving and much more!
Nate talks about true, vs. false spirituality. Specifically mind altering substances. In Nate's opinion the most spiritual people are those with or with past substance issues. The people who are seekers of something outside of themselves. Yet substance method comes at a high price. While True spirituality is found within yourself through natural means of journeying.
Nate puts a interesting twist on the parable of the wedding feast. Nate also talks about our mental health and gun control issues.
Now What? There is always going to be someone to tell you no, your not good enough, don't have enough experience, don't have enough education, or they do not like the decisions of your past. Are you going to let others define you? Or, are you going to allow yourself be defined by your God nature?
Nate helps us to find heaven. Not the heaven that one thinks of after we die, but the heaven Jesus talked most about. The kingdom of heaven is now! It is up to you to find the kingdom of God. Because as Jesus said the kingdom of heaven is at hand!
Let's be happy! The country is divided, yes we have serious issues, but we also must take care of ourselves. If we get so wrapped up in trying to be the problem solver we crash and burn. Believe me I know all to well how to crash and burn. So on this episode let us be happy together!
Would Jesus take a knee? That is the question I propose. Players taking a knee in the NFL has been a highly controversial topic that has continued to divide an already divided country. In this episode Nate talks about an event in the life of Jesus in which he did not just take a knee he went above and beyond anything that the players in the NFL are currently doing.
The final instalment of the "New Aeon" series. The most important. Your will, your purpose, what you have been put on this earth to do. We all have struggled with this and hopefully you will be able to find your will after listening to this podcast.

We have seen the church twist scripture to control the population for thousands of years. Today we have much more information at our fingertips. Yet control, especially abusive control still remains a problem within the church. The new Aeon of Christianity follows simple guidelines no rules, no dogma just Spirit led Christianity.
Today the good Rev. Talks about sexuality a topic that is left out of most churches but must be approached; especially within this New Aeon. We must not live in shame of sexuality but instead embrace it.
Nate continues in his series of The New Aeon of Christianity. In this episode Nate examines material possessions. Also the old aeon method of tithing and giving out of psychological manipulation. Nate desires to bring the body of Christ freedom from any abuse and bondage brought on by "leaders" within the body of Christ.
Over the past 2000 years man has distorted, twisted, and perverted Christianity. We are human after all. We have created a firewall between God and us. Nate goes into detail in part 1 examining who we are? And the first point of six Salvation. The next episodes will cover possessions, sexuality, fear, love, and will.
