Today’s show is going to be a bit different from some other episodes. I’m sitting down with a friend of mine to talk about faith, Christianity, modern day heresies, and all sorts of topics. It’s the kind of conversation that I hope more of us have with our friends, and I hope you enjoy listening in on this discussion.John Williams is a servant of God who strives daily to pick up his cross and follow Christ; contently serving in an upside-down kingdom. The greatest honor he has is the opportunity to study scripture with his wife, disciple his two sons, and serve his community in the name of Christ.  As a former pastor's kid John has had a front row view of different spins on religious doctrine. Having had many faith crises in his time he was confronted with the dreaded questions, "what do I believe... and why?"  Starting over from scratch, he began at the first place - the only place - that matters:  the text. Since then, he has devoted his time to studying scripture and discipleship, while serving the community. Questions Answered:What is a heresy?Are we experiencing anything truly new in our society these days?What is original sin and how does it lead to heresy today?If I am basically good, what is the impact of the death of Christ?How can self-help potentially lead to heresy?What do you think about churches who skip the challenging parts of the Bible?Jesus talks about both judgment and love; how do we balance those two?Is the Bible just a book written by a bunch of men and not divinely inspired?How do we discern false teachers and false teaching?What are your thoughts of the prosperity gospel?How does a man start reading and studying the Bible?What about Free Will versus Predestination?What happens when a church becomes overly political?What is panentheism and how does it impact people today?What happens when a man daily spends time in scripture?  Important Links:The Case for Christ book: https://www.amazon.com/dp/0310345863 THE FELLOWSHIP BROTHERHOODAn exclusive community of like-minded Christian men, who meet each week to learn, laugh, hold each other accountable, and walk through life together.Join this exclusive brotherhood: https://significantman.com/the-fellowship/ THE BASECAMP EXPERIENCEFour days and three nights of life-changing and intense training for Christian men in the glorious mountains of Colorado.Apply for this Adventure: https://significantman.com/basecamp-is-for-me/ Join the free Significant Man RECHARGE men’s FB Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/significantmanrechargeSubscribe to the Significant Man YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/SignificantManConnect directly with Warren https://www.facebook.com/4warrenPurchase Warren’s books https://www.amazon.com/Warren-Peterson/e/B0097BEK8G

Prison can be a hard place, filled with people who have committed some of the worst crimes. As we’ll learn today, prison can also be a place of redemption, where people find God. It’s not an easy conversation to have, and our guest today knows that better than any. He went from being in prison and thinking that he would be there until he died to a free man who now preaches from the pulpit.Howie Close has spent the last eleven years as a pastor at Woodmen Valley Chapel, overseeing the church’s statewide prison ministry.

One of the most important issues of our time is the mental health of our kids. The statistics are not encouraging right now, as rates of depression, anxiety, and suicide continue to rise. This is not something that can be ignored or that we can just hope will change on its own. And this is something that we, all of us, need to talk about and be aware of. Our guest today has years of experience in working with kids, working with teens, and creating positive changes in their lives.John Williams wasn’t raised under the best circumstances; he never met his biological father and from a young age he often had to take care of himself. Despite that, he has become an unshakable visionary who sees the world as it could be. He teaches students that they are more than their circumstances, and that they have what it takes to achieve their dreams. He does this by sharing his story and equipping them with the tools to face whatever life may throw at them. This is why he created Life That Counts, a nonprofit with the mission of helping students make better decisions for more healthy outcomes. Questions Answered:What is mental health?What is your story from a child to where you are now?How do we work through the challenge of such an increase in teen suicide?In what ways has the COVID response impacted our kids?How is cyber bullying impacting teens today?Who are the kids that you look to as leaders in the work that you do?How can we help our kids to make better decisions?What are the ways we can begin talking about mental health issues with our own children?Can you explain what you do with Life That Counts? Important Links:Learn more about Life That Counts: https://lifethatcounts.org/Watch John’s TEDx Talk: https://youtu.be/FD2MthukvMI   THE FELLOWSHIP BROTHERHOODAn exclusive community of like-minded Christian men, who meet each week to learn, laugh, hold each other accountable, and walk through life together.Join this exclusive brotherhood: https://significantman.com/the-fellowship/ THE BASECAMP EXPERIENCEFour days and three nights of life-changing and intense training for Christian men in the glorious mountains of Colorado.Apply for this Adventure: https://significantman.com/basecamp-is-for-me/ Join the free Significant Man RECHARGE men’s FB Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/significantmanrechargeSubscribe to the Significant Man YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/SignificantManConnect directly with Warren https://www.facebook.com/4warrenPurchase Warren’s books https://www.amazon.com/Warren-Peterson/e/B0097BEK8G

While our first instinct may be to run in the opposite direction of an oncoming storm, we can learn from the buffalo about going head first into the storm instead. When we face the storms, we begin to understand more about ourselves, we change in our ability to lead our families, and we become more capable as husbands and as fathers. Our guest today has great insight into just why and how we can face the storms of life. Tim Douglas is a man after God’s heart. He’s a personal and professional development coach that specializes in high performance and soul training. He helps men to show up more fully in life.

What is Biblical masculinity? What is a man? Why does the world need men who are following the example Jesus set of Biblical masculinity? These are core questions and core concepts for Christian men to think about and implement in their lives, yet not often clearly talked about.

Welcome to the Significant Man Recharge show, I’m your host Warren Peterson. This show is designed for Christian men, and my goal is for you to have a great experience listening and learning along the way.On this show you’ll hear discussions about the issues that matter to Christian men. Between my guests and myself, we’ll cover a wide range of subjects, from sex, to faith, to finances, health, scripture, marriage, parenting, and even into things that may be considered hot button issues of our time.Together, we’ve got to keep learning, because even though we live in this world, we're not of this world. We have to learn how to navigate the challenges that the world presents. We have to learn about the important issues of the day, along with going deeper into our individual walks of faith.To share a bit about me, I’m the founder of Significant Man Ministries and I’ve been working with and mentoring men for quite a long time. I lead live immersion events here in the glorious Colorado mountains where I live, and I also lead a weekly mastermind for Christian men.I’ve made lots of mistakes over my life, and I've learned a ton from the guys I’ve had the privilege of working with. I look forward to going on a journey with you over the lifetime of this show, as we learn together.Every week I’ll post a new episode with a guest who is here to share a relevant topic with you.And every now and then I’ll also post an additional episode that's just me sharing my own thoughts with you.This show is a place for you to come to get renewed, refocused, restored, and recharged from the chaos, noise, and busyness of life.So with all that being said, thanks for being here, make sure you subscribe, and let’s get started!To learn more about the Significant Man BASECAMP live events in Colorado, click here.To learn more about the weekly mastermind for Christian men, click here.
