Easter Sermon Round Up

We know, we know…Easter 2022 has come and gone. We’re just now getting around to posting this episode with Prs. Boyle, Lovett and Kerns. (Think: Bigger Fish on the other line.) Take a listen to the steaming piles of bovine waste that were being served at THREE American Evangelical churches this year. Lord have mercy!


I Surrender All…I Mean…Some

Pr. Kerns heard a sermon calling for us to surrender our all to Jesus. As much as he wants to, he doesn’t. No one does. He met with Pr. Boyle to discuss this terrible, condemning sermon. Ask yourself–do you give God your all?


Tuning Our Ears to Hear God Speak

Sermons like these are ubiquitous. They suggest YOU are the reason you can’t hear God. What an impotent God! He has to wait on you to position yourself just right, before He can speak. Sermons like this are damning, especially when God speaks to you in His Word (2 Timothy 3:16). Stick to God’s Word, … Continue reading "Tuning Our Ears to Hear God Speak"


Prs. Boyle and Lovett on Pandering to the Spirit of the Age

‘Nuf said


How Can Such a Symbolic Meal Do Sooo Much?

It seems that the Body and Blood of Christ do more than Christ promised. Who knew? Listen to Prs. Kerns and Ockree as they found out.


Prs. Boyle and Lovett on Holy Baptism

Here in our 75th episode, The Plucked Chicken hosts the dynamic duo of Pastors Boyle and Lovett in Wichita KS, who are forced to endure two American Evangelical sermons on Holy Baptism. As Pr. Boyle is prone to say, “It’s a mess.”


Emphasis: Dream Team

Are you on a Dream Team? If you’re not, you could be missing out on transformation…or at least that’s what we’re told. Listen to Prs. Ockree and Kerns wonder why they have missed this “essential” doctrine for the Christian.


Mail Bag

In this episode, Prs. Bruss, Kerns and Micheel get to open the mail bag to answer listeners’ questions. If this episode spurs questions from you, they say–“Bring it on!” Enjoy.


Wait…what? 3 baptisms?

Let’s see…there’s the 3 little pigs, 3 blind mice and 3 legged races. There’s even Three’s Company with John Ritter and Mr. and Mrs. Roper. But 3 baptisms? What you talkin’ ’bout Willis? Maybe just maybe there’s only one baptism just like the Nicene Creed teaches and confesses. Give a listen to Pr. Bruss and … Continue reading "Wait…what? 3 baptisms?"


Don’t Wanna Thrive!

At Thrive Church in Colorado they THRIVE! They do so by preaching God’s Word out of context–over and over and over again. But who cares? People love having their ears tickled (2 Timothy 4:3). If this is what it means to THRIVE, Pr. Bruss and Pr. Kerns want none of it. They hope you don’t … Continue reading "Don’t Wanna Thrive!"


Examples in Missin’ ‘da Point

If you think pastors only work a couple of hours on Sunday, and more content should be put on the Plucked Chicken–Prs. Kerns, Bruss and Ockree couldn’t agree with you more! However, dropping podcasts is not their call, though it is their joy, when they can do so. In this episode, you get two sermons, … Continue reading "Examples in Missin’ ‘da Point"


Clips for Winkle



Pastor’s Roundtable on John

John 4:46-5:18 | New Year, but the same Jesus as told to us by St. John. Enjoy.


Discovering the Mysteries

Prs. Bruss and Kerns have eagerly awaited Pr. Farley (affectionately known as, The Twisted Preacher) arriving at 1 Corinthians 10 and 11. Though Farley’s church is called Church w/o Religion, a more apt name would be, Church w/o Truth. Listen for yourself, especially with an open Bible. See who promotes the truth concerning the Sacrament … Continue reading "Discovering the Mysteries"


“Pick Your Poison!”

Pr. Bruss gets the unique privilege of picking one sermon to critique from four bad sermons.


Pastors’ Roundtable on John

John 4:1-45 |Pastors Bruss, Ockree and Kerns discuss the conversation and conversion of the woman at the well, a.k.a., St. Photini. This was her name given to us by the Church Fathers. It means “the luminous one” from φῶς, “light.”


Pastors’ Roundtable on John

Pastors Bruss, Ockree and Kerns tackle the last portion of John 3.


Imago Dei

You hear it frequently–“Everyone is made in the image of God, and becasue of that, blah, blah, blah.” Is it true that everyone is made in God’s image, or was only Adam? What part does salvation play in restoring this image? Pr. Kerns and Pr. Ockree discuss it.


Pastors’ Roundtable on John

In today’s episode Nicodemus finds out he doesn’t have to crawl back into his mother’s womb in order to be born from above. This, we’re certain, was a great relief to Nicodemus’ mother. Join the same Pastors sitting around the same round table discussing the first half of John 3.


Pastors’ Roundtable on John

It’s the same Prs. sitting around the same table. But this time, we take up John 2. Take a listen, because you’ll learn something.
