Why Would Anyone Follow Christ?

I Want To Believe Radio is back for His glory, honor, and praise!

PODCAST: Why Would Anyone Want To Follow Jesus Christ?

PODCAST: The Problem With Modern Evangelism

If the true, whole, Biblical Gospel were preached today it might lead to less False Converts.

Do you know the true costs of following Jesus Christ?

Haven't listened to the podcast yet, but.....because His sheep know His voice???

Least that's what He said.


Don't worry Zack, we're on the same page my friend.

My goal is to give Biblical presentations on provocative subject matter (always in that order), and so coming up with a title that will draw the attention of both Christians and non-Christians alike is what I'm hoping to achieve with these podcasts. I guess I was successful in this case, huh?

Please let me know what you think (please apply Acts 17:11) and sorry for the heart attack I probably gave you when you first read that and did a double take! HA.

In Christ,

Oh; this is by you. Cool! I thought it was another Kingdom Bound podcast, which I like also. I'll listen today and give you my critique :-) Keep feeding the sheep, Jeff. You're doing a great job. Our Father is pleased when we feed His sheep meat and potatoes.


The cost of following Christ.. "Death".. We have been very blessed in this country not to be subjected to this.. But its on the horizon, and I'm thinking its closer than we think.. I believe God will continue to reveal the "foxes" in the hen house. And those that truly belong to Him, might have to face death for the first time, because we refuse to simulate into their world order.

Why would anyone not want to follow Christ?

How can one have so much hatred of Yahweh/Yahshua that they would choose death rather than surrender to Him.

I know what the Bible says about this but my heart cannot grasp the pain of it. Not that they didn't sow what they are reaping or Yahweh is being unfair, not at all.

I feel that the purpose of our existence is to choose whether we love God or don't.

When the Israelites were about to enter the promised land Moses records in Deu 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore CHOOSE LIFE, that both thou and thy seed may live:

I get this feeling that Israel and the mixed multitudes have been wandering around all these years and are about to come again to the crossroads of the promised land.

I pray that in Yahshua's name that this time you choose life.

Ok this is going to sound really weird (especially coming from me). Me and my little girl watched Surfs Up this afternoon and it really spoke to me. GOD is like the waves that Cody wants to conquer but keeps fighting. He wants to be a winner/the big guy on top. He wants the fame and glory of it all (kindof like lucifer). Zeke shows Cody that it is not all about the end result as much as it is about the journey. And that by trying so hard, he is missing everything (a girlfriend, friends, mentor, time...)
The climax of surfing is when you're in the tube/indescribable. What Cody learns is that by NOT trying, but RESTING and letting the wave carry you, you stop doing all the WORK, because the wave does it. Sure you may have to battle a Tank (the haughty penguin) or go through the Bone Yard (valley of the shadow of death), but the LORD is with you all the time.
The end of the movie, Cody gets real fulfillment: fellowship. Fellowship earned through hardship, endurance, patience, trials, listening to his mentor.

Hebrews 4:9 There remains then , a Sabbath rest for the people of GOD; for anyone who enters GOD's rest also rests from his own work, just as GOD did from His. Let us therefore make every effort to enter that rest.....


Listened. Good Stuff.

You need to keep this up, Jeff. I think your style has a unique ability to reach the lost, unlike anything I have heard in a while.


An EXCELLENT commentary that summarizes my feelings (and the reality) touched upon in these two podcasts...


In Christ,
