Meeting People Head On with Ray Schmautz 6: Eternal Assurance

Meeting People Head On Thumbnail

Last time, I shared what the Bible says about how to become a Christian. But, how can we be assured that if we put our faith in Jesus Christ to be the Savior of the world, that He personally came and died for you to pay your penalty of death for your sin, so that you could have His righteousness – the Bible clearly says that you could be assured that if you were to die today, you would have eternal life and be with God forever. And that’s an assurance that’s worth more than all the money in … [Read more...]

[display_podcast] We must eat daily...spirit, soul, and body to grow, be balanced, and to be healthy...in all three areas: spirit, soul, and body.We are so fast paced in our country.  And we have incorporated this into our relationship with God.  We are a fast food nation. We want instantaneous answers, overnight transformation, and speedy growth. We want drive up and drive through service. But God desires to speak to us daily through his word. He wants to have direct conversation w … [Read more...]

Ouxano 61: 1 Samuel, part 8 – 21st Century Idols

[display_podcast] The fifth chapter of 1 Samuel focuses largely on the Philistines.  Now, as we study the Bible, we see the Philistines as an enemy of God’s people – a group of people God and Israel deal with on a regular basis.  However, too often, 21st century Christians fall into the trap of looking at these scriptures and interpreting them to mean that the “Philistines” of today’s world are anything secular, or outside of Christianity – that “the world” are the “bad people” that need to be s … [Read more...]

After retiring from the NFL’s Oakland Raiders, I wanted to go and get equipped so that God could use me in ministry.  Although, I didn’t really know what that meant, or where or how God could use a guy like me.  So, I went back to San Diego State to finish my undergrad studies and worked with Youth For Christ while there.  And, while God was using us to do some great things during that time, I realized that the depth of my Biblical knowledge wasn’t where it needed to be, so I enrolled at Talbot T … [Read more...]

Jesus in HD 75: Jesus’ Mind-Blowing Climax to His Signature Sermon

Jesus in HD Thumbnail

[display_podcast] They say that confession is good for the soul. So here goes: I confess that I'm feeling terribly conflicted about the passage we discuss in this PODCAST. On the one hand, this is as sober and serious as it gets, Jesus' climax to His signature sermon. Yet on the other hand, I find myself strangely comforted by His words. Comforted because they explain SO MUCH of what we see done today in Jesus' name. You see, Jesus said this at the end of His Sermon on the Mount: 21 “Not eve … [Read more...]

Jesus in HD 73: Two Roads, Two Gates, Two Destinies

[display_podcast]Sometimes things really are as simple as they sound.As you will hear in this PODCAST, this little truism was never more true than it is of Jesus’ words here at the tail end of the Sermon on the Mount.And believe it or not, Jesus swerved right into the middle of what has become a tragic distortion of our beliefs, especially among a younger generation of pastors and the churches that they lead.It’s time for us to recalibrate our theology, in order for our beliefs to … [Read more...]
