Fatherhood
Fathers are a necessity to raising up the next generation properly.  It is especially important for first responders to raise their kids the right way, as we see the way they can turn out if we aren't present.     How can a parent who is also a police officer or firefighter be most effective in raising their kids?  That's the question Michael and Adam tackle in this episode of Thin Line Believers Podcast.   Instagram and FB: @thinlinebelievers  www.thinlinebelievers.com

Undaunted with Kyle Thompson
Boldness is a Christian characteristic that has been missing in many modern-day Christians.  Why do we lack boldness and what do we do about it? Kyle Thompson is the founder and host of Undaunted Life: A Man's Podcast.  He is very outspoken and unapologetic when it comes to Christian values and morality.  This one will motivate you to push back against the darkness. Here's the episode Kyle cited: https://www.undaunted.life/podcast/315 Undaunted life website: www.undaunted.life www.thinlinebelievers.com

Gun Control
Gun control makes its way to the forefront of political debates again.  Canada presents legislation to (eventually) disarm the public.  What should we as Christians believe?  Was the Second Amendment a mistake?  What is the real issue here, and how do we fix it? www.thinlinebelievers.com

Troubling Times
We talk about trials and tribulations a lot. That's because everyone faces them constantly and if we aren't ready spiritually, we can easily succumb to the depression and anxiety that follow. Listen in and be encouraged!

Porn Studies? They've Lost Their Minds!

Times are Dark, But Sunday is Coming!

Life and Death
To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven:  A time to be born, And a time to die; A time to plant, And a time to pluck what is planted; A time to kill, And a time to heal; A time to break down, And a time to build up; A time to weep, And a time to laugh; A time to mourn, And a time to dance;  -Ecclesiastes 3:1-4 This passage of Scripture framed the conversation with Mike and Adam this week.

DECEPTION
There is a great deception being pushed in the world today.  Everything from the plandemic to the war in Ukraine, the media has an agenda that is becoming more and more obvious.  As first responders, we need to know the truth before we ever set foot into the world, or we'll be susceptible to any lie that comes our way.  The best way to identify a counterfeit is to be so familiar with the authentic that any fake will be easily distinguished.  In Matthew 24, the first thing Jesus said to the disciples regarding end times was "Be sure you are not deceived".  It seems that is one of the main signs we are to be aware of, and it's happening all around. www.thinlinebelievers.com thinlinebelievers@gmail.com Instagram: @thinlinebelievers

The Horses are Saddled and Ready!
In Revelation 6 we are introduced to what we now call the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.  With them come all sorts of horrors, such as hyperinflation, plagues, famines, war and more.  With what is currently happening on the world scene, it appears to us these horses are saddled and ready to ride.  It's just a matter of time.  Only God knows the day and the hour as to when these things will kick off.  We need to know what is going on as it concerns Bible prophecy.  Why?  Because it's in the Bible.   Adam and Michael discuss these four horsemen in light of what we are seeing.  Moreso, they offer some hope for the Believer in these days.

Christian Masculinity
What characteristics do the modern Christian man portray?  Is he harmless and straight laced?  Some of the most dangerous men throughout our history have been Christian men.     Weakness is not to be confused with meekness.  The modern Christian man needs to be prepared to stand for what is right, even if it means getting our hands dirty.  Enjoy this latest podcast with Mike and Adam.

Anxiety and Faith
Sometimes anxiety will manifest itself due to a lack of faith.   Michael and Adam discuss this topic in light of the recorded healings Jesus performed in Matthew, and the emphasis He placed on faith.  In one case, Jesus "marveled" at a man's faith.  In another case, the disciples "marveled" at Jesus's calming of a storm, due to their lack of faith.   If you struggle with anxiety, we feel you and we can relate.  This topic of discussion was as much for you as it was for us.

Line of Duty Deaths and Suicide
Well this is an unpleasant topic, but one we cannot ignore.  A law enforcement couple who committed suicide recently in Florida, and several line of duty deaths have caught our attention and are very deserving of at least a conversation.  Mike and Adam discuss these topics and give a little hint as to what the next topic will be.

Hellfire and Brimstone
The horrors of hell aren't often discussed, but they should be.  Jesus spoke of hell on several occasions and in this video we discuss just one of them.  People aren't sent to hell, they choose it.   If someone decides they don't want anything to do with Jesus, they don't want anything to do with God, the only place to escape is in hell.  Hell was created for the devil and his angels.  You and I have a choice, and it's the most important decision of our lives.  #faith #christianity

What is my 'WHY'?
Why should we exercise?  Why should we work at being physically fit?  There are innumerable reasons, but you have to be able to find your own 'why' when it comes to fitness, otherwise that New Year's resolution will end before the ball drops.   This week Mike and Adam chat about fitness as first responders and also in ministry.  Join us as Mike brings us his perspective as he has a background in ministry, fire suppression, law enforcement and fitness.   Instagram @ thinlinebelievers  thinlinebelievers@gmail.com  www.thinlinebelievers.com   #Fitness #lawenforcement #cops #firstresponders #firefighters

Police Officer Wellness - Breaking the Stigma (with Matt Domyancic - part 2)
A healthy police officer is less likely to die young, make poor decisions, end relationships in divorce, contemplate suicide...  Cops don't sleep enough, eat properly, talk about their problems...

This is a call to arms!  This is a rally cry to those watching our world go up in flames!  Why are we afraid?!  This is no time to sit on the sidelines and hope for things to go "back to normal", this is the time to step out in faith and step up!  We rally not under a flag, not under any human leader,  we rally at the Cross!

Is There Any Hope for America?
In this episode I pose a question to Josiah and Michael:  Is there any hope for America, or is she too far gone?  The answer provided is precisely what I had hoped for.   “As it is written, ‘There is none righteous, no, not one.'” (Romans 3:10, KJV) “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23, KJV) “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8, KJV) “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23, KJV) “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13, KJV) That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
