Welcome to The Backyard Preacher Podcast!

Stay Inspired God loves you!

Mar 23, 2017

Nate talks about forgiving yourself, loving yourself, and being kind to yourself.  This is a message from the heart.  We cannot be effective as Christians and walk in the love and light of Christ when our own love and light is covered by guilt and shame. 

Mar 17, 2017

Happy St Patrick's Day!  All you wannabe Irish people who just want another excuse to drink.  Please be safe out there!  OK, Nate takes on the division of flesh and Spirit, looking at the text from Luke chapter 8 which describes the transfiguration of Christ from an esoteric perspective.  Enjoy, and stay inspired!

Mar 7, 2017

Tragedy strikes and we cry out why God? Why God?  We lost our puppy yesterday at the hand of a vicious dog while our Ebony just wanted to love and play.  Ebony never knew a stranger neither did our Lord.  Both gave their lives, listen with a tender heart the story of Ebony our beloved puppy.

Mar 3, 2017

Nate talks about the fight between the flesh and the Spirit.  The battle of our true selves and that of the illusion of ego which tries to take over our lives.  We succumb to pain then use a variety of vices based on our animalistic biology to place a bandage on a wound that can only be healed through Christ.  

Feb 24, 2017

Pope Francis set off a firestorm in the religious world with his latest homily, claiming that it was better to be an atheist than a bad Christian.  Nate takes a look at this along with the Pope's claim of Christian universalism. 

Feb 18, 2017

Nate talks about the transcendence of the human spirit into a more capable medium, that being the machine.  How is this still compatible with Christianity?  Nate also talks about the possible simulation of this life and continuing to follow your passions despite being trapped in a program. 

Feb 13, 2017

Nate looks at Mark chapter 4 and what many look upon as a text relating to salvation Nate re examines the text and discovers that it is full of motivation. 

Feb 9, 2017

Nate often introduces the podcast with his line "This is not your mother's religious program we are not TBN, I will not ask for your money give it to someone who needs it."  So today Nate talks a little bit about money and ministry.  Although the greater portion of the show is focused on the spiritual awakening of Jesus and an awakening that we must also have as his followers.  Listen up and be blessed.  Please share!

Feb 8, 2017

Today Nate talks about what the singularity of Christianity that can bring us all together in unity as Christians, no matter your flavor.  We currently live in a divided country with a divided church.  The time for unity is now.  Listen and receive the guidance you need to live out a life of love and unity.

Feb 4, 2017

So many times we allow the grace of God to act silently upon our lives giving us feelings of guilt and remorse, when God is saying that no matter what you do, or have done my love for you is still the same.  Today be open to the grace of God in your life, you are loved and regardless of how you may feel about yourself God loves you and understands. 

Jan 28, 2017

A full episode today.  Nate speaks about possibly becoming a ghost buster, as well as a somewhat satirical explanation of both radical Islam and Christianity.  Finally Nate talks about protesting.  We have seen many protest and probably more to come now that Trump is President.  Yet let us not forget that our country was founded on protest.   

Jan 23, 2017

Nate talks about the first days of a Trump Presidency.  While he does not like Trump Nate encourages us to pray for the President.  Nate uses the text found in Mark 7:31-37 as an example of how we should reach out to God to have our ears opened in order for us to speak righteousness.  Let us do like the people of Decapolis, let us bring Trump to the throne room of God, allowing God to open his eyes and ears for the sake of the country.   

Jan 20, 2017

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

Jan 12, 2017

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?

Jan 12, 2017

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. 

Jan 8, 2017

Nate talks about reality, or is what you are reading actually real, or is this just all a dream?  Nate also dives into the canonical and "Gnostic" text.  Why is some text out of orthodox scripture and why others are not.  Nate also brings up the similarities between the early Gnostics and modern Pentecostals.

Jan 1, 2017

Happy New Year!  The Backyard Preacher is starting the year out with a bang as we have with us our first ever guest Jordan Sprott.  Jordan who is 17 years old is the son of Nate and brings a candid account of the life of a teenager in this time as well as how teens feel about spirituality and church. 

Dec 31, 2016

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. 

Dec 26, 2016

Nate in his final episode about his journey out of fundamental Christianity talks about how it all took place, and why he is at where he is at now.  Maybe you will be able to relate in some way in order to find yourself?  Maybe like Nate there was a weight on your shoulders, if so listen and enjoy.
