    5 Dumb Things Christians Need To Stop Doing

    5 Dumb Things Christians Need To Stop Doing

    The life of Jesus was and will always be counter-cultural. But often, it seems, we’re not ridiculed or rejected because we’re living such radically loving and selfless lives, it’s because we actually live so little like Jesus.

    In this episode, Caesar looks at 5 dumb things that Christians need to stop doing that are affecting our witness and our discipleship efforts. And he gives a little of the gospel “thing behind the thing” with each of these issues.

    In This Episode You’ll Learn:
    -Why we need to be careful with what we say online.
    -How even our most loving actions can be misunderstood.
    -The things that Jesus got angry about (are you?).
    -How the way we handle conflict reflects our faith.

    In This Episode You’ll Learn:
    -Why the Gospel is always Good News in context.
    -5 important elements of every city and neighborhood.
    -How every culture has "keys" that unlock hearts for Jesus.

Believers for 30 years -we’ve never heard teaching like this!

My husband and I have been changed by listening to Everyday Disciple. Our mindset has shifted from “me-centered” to discipleship-focused. We’ve been listening ever since we participated in the Everyday Disciples Challenge a few months ago and we are surprised each time we listen to a new podcast. We often have to hit pause because our minds are blown by what we are hearing. I can’t believe I’ve been following Jesus for 30 years and I’ve missed so much of this! I am so thankful that we found Everyday Disciple and this podcast. We are taking steps now towards making disciples because of the practical teaching we are receiving from Caesar.
