This generation of men is vastly different than previous generations. 100 years ago, men needed each other, worked together, talked together, interacted with one another … not now, not in these generations. This generation is compassionate, less judgmental, and more connected to society … but they are not connected to other men. Even the Bible is...

Most men don’t know how to engage other men … they just talk about sports or politics but nothing meaningful. How are men supposed to relate to one another? How...

The Horror of The Cross

The horror of The Cross is that it is a horrific event, and it was done to Christ … for us. Christ suffers greatly at the height of the horror, and His suffering was for us.

Only your belief in Jesus will...

The Word of God

4/1/2022
Pastor Walt asks are we taking Scripture seriously? The Word of God is the only rule to direct us on how we can glory Him. To fear God and obey God is the whole duty of man. The Bible was taught differently in the early church than taught now … if taught at all. So, if the Bible is taught, what is the expectation of the listeners? In today’s church, there is no expectation of the listener, no expectation of transformation. The early church taught the Bible as an apprenticeship to the...

Passing the Vision

Little Sins

3/18/2022
In this episode, Pastor Walt thinks out loud about little sins. Little sins in the hands of leaders can be big sins. Some pastors don’t follow the Scripture mandate, we need to have leaders who follow Scriptures. We may say that we’d do or not do a certain thing … until we get in the pressure cooker. Then we compromise … if you compromise in one area, you’ll compromise in other areas. It's time to come clean about your little sins … little sins lead to bigger sins. Visit Walt McFadden at...

Mentorship

3/11/2022
Pastor Walt thinks out loud about mentorship. Wisdom can be attained from older Christians, and older Christians need to grow in wisdom. Older women need to mentor younger women, and older men need to mentor younger men. Everyone in the church is to be a disciple, to stop just drinking it in and start being a teacher. We are to walk in Jesus’ steps. The church needs to lift up their eyes and be aware of who needs mentoring. We are to learn how to mentor and who to mentor. Visit Walt...

The Gospel

3/4/2022
In this Thinking Out Loud episode, Pastor Walt McFadden talks about the Gospel. What does Pastor Walt mean by the Gospel? The Gospel is God’s plan for eternity. Most pastors are free lancing, coming up with their own version of Christianity. Society has taken the direction that we believe what we want, and this has slipped into the church. But the Gospel is a specific message and a specific path to God. We can’t deviate from the message of the Gospel. People are looking for truth … they may...

To Be a Disciple is to Make Disciples

2/25/2022
Pastor Walt thinks out loud on being a disciple. Churches have a problem with walking their talk … the cure is discipleship. We are on a mission from God … to go forth and make disciples. Discipleship requires shepherding the flock, guiding the flock, training them in the Gospel, raising them up, so they in turn become disciples of Jesus who will then also make more disciples of Jesus. This is not to control others, it’s to educate them and to mentor them in being a disciple. They in turn,...

Be Bold
