Episodes

REJECTING GOD AND MAKING IDOLS OF MEN | 017

8/20/2018
More
In this episode, Sam continues his discussion about corrupt leaders, pastors, and priests in the church, but uncovers the real problem - the people who follow them. In the book of 1 Samuel, God made it clear that by demanding a king, the people were rejecting Him and choosing idolatry. God desires a kingdom of priests who listen to His voice and follow Him alone, not a nation of people who obey and idolize men. It’s time to remove those we follow from the throne in our hearts and let God...

If Your Pastor is Your Conduit to God, You’re F*CKED | 016

8/13/2018
More
In this episode, Sam refers to recent headlines regarding the sexual corruption and abuse of men who are leaders in the church, and the systemic problem that this highlights. Using the story of Samuel at the end of his ministry in the Old Testament, he points out that Christians who choose to follow a man are no different than the Children of Israel who rejected God by demanding a king that they could follow. Just as our head operates our entire physical body, there can be only one Head of...

Are You Willing to Kill Your Son? | 015

8/6/2018
More
In this episode, Sam tells the story of Abraham and the pinnacle test of faith that he passed through in offering his son Isaac. Being put to such an unimaginable test caused Abraham to trust in God in a way that, for most, is hard to comprehend. Where in your life is the Voice commanding you to take a step of faith? Have you been obedient to the Voice, or have you taken matters into your own hands, not trusting that God will provide? ___________________________ Welcome to THE CHURCH IS...

Encountering the VOICE of Truth | 014

7/30/2018
More
In this episode, Sam reflects on a time when his young son, Jonah, became upset because of his inability to master the game of bowling on his first try. Even in our youth, we all begin believing lies based on stories in our head. As we grow and become aware of these lies, we seek any possible way to be free of them. Most of us have been taught that the Bible is the answer for our liberation. IT IS NOT. Only an encounter with God Himself, hearing His Voice of truth in our hearts, can set us...

Scripture is NOT The Word | 013

7/30/2018
More
In this episode, Sam explains how Christians have been misled by the synonymous use of the terms Scripture and “Word,” which has resulted in great misunderstanding, mishandling, and misuse of the Bible. In John 5:39 Jesus rebuked the religious people of His time for this same approach to the Bible saying “you search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these (Scriptures) that testify about Me, and you are unwilling to come to Me that you may have...

Your Father, The Devil | 012

7/30/2018
More
In this episode, Sam examines how the father of lies is out to murder us all. When we believe the lies of the Devil, we become stuck in our guilt and shame, bound in chains, unable to become who God created us to be. Sam uses the story of the adulterous woman to show the power of the truth of Jesus that sets us free from the condemnation of others and of ourselves. Listen to the Voice of God Himself and true freedom will follow. ___________________________ Welcome to THE CHURCH IS BROKEN...

Lies of Conformity vs The Code of Truth | 011

7/9/2018
More
In this episode, Sam uses the story of Jesus and the Samaritan Woman to illustrate how we are all conditioned to lie. The pressure of conforming to standards set by man and not by God keeps us from becoming the people that the Father is seeking - those who worship in spirit and in TRUTH. When we get down to the bedrock of truth in our lives, we begin to build upon a solid foundation so that what we build and who we become - in body, being, balance, and business - will not crumble or fall,...

Suppression and Sedation - NO MAN IS IMMUNE | 010

7/2/2018
More
In this episode, Sam tells his story of living with “blinders on,” and how that led to him burning out or burning down every area of his life. One of the biggest lies he told himself - that most men are conditioned by society to believe - is that it was not ok to feel his feelings, that he needed to suck it up. This lie caused him to suppress and this suppression drove him to sedate. It was not until finding the Warrior’s Way that he began to uncork decades of emotional...

Violence, The War and The Warrior’s Way | 009

6/25/2018
More
In this episode, Sam addresses some critics and sheds light on why he isn't an angry man, but he is a violent man. As believers, we are called to become Kingdom Warriors and to enter into the battle to bring the Kingdom of Heaven to the earth. This starts by bringing light first into the darkness within us, then into our families, and ultimately into the world. Let’s take up our armor and get into the fight! ____________________________ Welcome to THE CHURCH IS BROKEN podcast. Join Sam...

Leaders and Laws - This is THE SYSTEM | 008

6/18/2018
More
In this episode, Sam continues to challenge religion and the organized church. With James using his status as the flesh brother of Jesus, he emerges as the self-appointed leader in Jerusalem. Paul, of his own volition, establishes elders in the cities he preached in. And once established, this hierarchy became the means by which the Law was instated and imposed on believers. And thus, the framework of the structure, the system of the church, was...

The Apostle Paul Got It WRONG | 007

6/11/2018
More
In this episode, Sam contends that the Apostle Paul got it wrong by establishing churches – that he went beyond the bounds of what Jesus commissioned him to do in his conversion. Blasphemous as this may sound, Sam asks the listener to consider that Paul was a man, not a deity who never made a mistake and that the New Testament is primarily descriptive regarding church and churches, not prescriptive. ___________________________ Welcome to THE CHURCH IS BROKEN podcast.

WAKE THE F*CK UP - WE’RE HERE FOR THE KINGDOM | 006

6/5/2018
More
In this episode, Sam lays the foundation of his argument that the church is broken because God never intended for it to be or become what it is. In the Gospels, Jesus only uses the word “church” in two places because the church was not His focus, His mission, or His commission. Nor is it ours. Today we are NOT called to be churchgoers, church planters, or church builders; we are called to become Kingdom Warriors to enter the spiritual battle that is raging around us, fighting to bring...

I Will Be Pure | 005

5/29/2018
More
In this episode, Sam recalls a Sunday School lesson when he was a boy that caused him to vow in his heart that he would be pure. This vow would ultimately shape his younger years and lead to him becoming self-righteous and judgemental toward everyone. Sam warns that every system has laws and that the system of the church has created a culture of law-keepers no different from the Pharisees of Jesus’ time. ______________________________ Welcome to THE CHURCH IS BROKEN podcast.

A Father's Love | 004

5/22/2018
More
In this episode, Sam takes his listeners on an emotional journey through a time which made him realize how much he had geared his life to try to earn the love and approval of his father. Yet one of the greatest gifts Sam’s father gave him was to not meet this need, because it drove Sam to seek the only One who could truly fill this hole in his heart. _______________________________ Welcome to THE CHURCH IS BROKEN podcast.

Their Way is Not Yahweh | 003

5/15/2018
More
In this episode, Sam shares some honest insight on how protecting the church has become more important than caring for its people. As an organization, the church is driven to preserve, maintain, and propagate itself, and as a result, church leaders are often driven to be less concerned about the people they are called to shepherd and more concerned about carrying on the traditions of the system. ___________________________ Welcome to THE CHURCH IS BROKEN podcast.

Son of a Preacher Man | 002

5/8/2018
More
In this episode, Sam digs a little deeper into how he was introduced to the church through his parents. Being raised in the church held his family together, but as Sam began to seek the truth for himself, he discovered a falsehood that would shake his faith and cause him to question everything he was raised to believe. _____________________________ Welcome to THE CHURCH IS BROKEN podcast.

Origins | 001

5/1/2018
More
In this episode, Sam shares how he went from a loving, devoted husband and father to an angry, dark, depressed man. Questioning everything he knew about the church, everything he had given himself to as a pastor while trying to drive out the darkness he was experiencing, challenged Sam in a way he had never been before. His journey begins here. _________________________________ Welcome to THE CHURCH IS BROKEN podcast. Join Sam Neider, a former pastor, on his journey of enlightenment as...
