Special inauguration day episode of The Backyard Preacher Podcast.  Nate talks about the swearing in of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States.  Nate urges us to pray for the President and live in unity to love and forgive all and love all.  Regardless of our worldviews Nate believes that we will make it through the next four years

It's interesting to note some sects of the early church who broke away from Catholicism hundreds of years before Martin Luther would meet together all as initiated brothers and sisters in Christ. (Confession, and Baptism) Yet these Christians did not have set Bishops, priest, or prophets etc.. Instead each gathering they cast lots to decide the hierarchy for the appointed meeting. What an amazing group of Christians all dedicated enough to take on each office when called upon... by the Church. The Spirit gives us the ability to live serving one another in any capacity that needs met. Yet many church Fathers such as Tertullian thought their actions foolish that they would allow anyone into their meetings, be all accepting and loving, following the Spirit. There was no need for a cult of personality, or a single leader as all were leaders, all suffered the cause of being selected to hierarchy. What if we could live this out today? What do you think?

Life is hard.  This is an obvious statement.  With faith in our Lord it can be a little easier, or maybe even a little harder depending our you define it.  In either case faith and the acceptance of your self as a loved human being can be one of our greatest struggles.  Nate talks about this and more on this episode of The Backyard Preacher Podcast.

This is the last Podcast of 2016!  I hope that you have had a great year, and wish many blessings upon 2017.  OK, so today Nate is going to talk a little bit about church psychology, if such a thing actually exist yet we can very easily see how psychology plays apart in where we attend church. Are we chasing God as some use to say?  Are we abandoning a great congregation for the "next big thing?"  I don't know, I guess in the end we have to do what makes us happy.  Nate talks about this and more on this final podcast of 2016.

What the heck, Donald Trump is President elect!  This news has rocked many to the core as they stand is disbelief that such a man could actually be elected in this country which has seem to come so far from the days of past hatred.  It is not Trump which we should be concerned with it is his supporters some of which are very radical with there ungodly worldviews.  Yet we must not lower ourselves to the levels of those that hate us.  We must be Christ and love as he did even if it takes us to the cross.

Many people get the wrong idea about the word Religion especially in this post-modern world of Christianity.  I am not knocking post-moderns I am one myself.  Yet most look at religion as something that involves organized churches, denominations, a set of creeds, dogma, tradition, and of course legalism.  So let us break down the word religion and learn what it really means.
