    Bonus: The Man of God, Jim Ramos at The MAG

    Bonus: The Man of God, Jim Ramos at The MAG

    On vacation recently, I (Jim) was asked if I were a “Christian.” I strategically responded, “No, I am not but I do love and follow Jesus.”  Why did I choose those words? Because I have found that as Americans we (it may be global, but my experience is limited) throw around the word “Christian” without recognizing its significance. Here, the word Christian is nearly synonymous with a politically conservative, gun-owning, blue-jeans-wearing, homeowner, rural American.
    These could not be further the actual truth of this radical word. The word Christian means “Christ-one” or someone who is one with Jesus. To follow Jesus is a life-changing, plan-wrecking, purpose-giving, heart-altering event, and a lifelong process.
    To water it down to an in-the-moment decision that somehow transcends life into eternity is manipulative at best, deceptive at worst, and contrary to everything the Bible teaches about salvation.
    Nowhere in Scripture did Jesus ever call his followers to make decisions for Christ. He called them to make disciples of Christ. Matthew 28;16-20

    Quit or Finish Strong? The ONE Deciding Factor EP 612

    Quit or Finish Strong? The ONE Deciding Factor EP 612

    What separates those who quit from those who finish? Knowledge? Giftedness? Raw strength? We looked at the 41 guys who finished our 65,000 Push-Up Challenge and found their characteristics in common. This week, 12 of those finishers, including Rod Handley - the guy whose push-up journey after his cancer diagnosis inspired the challenge in the first place (EP 505)- joined Jim Ramos to identify what kept them going to the finish line.

    Bonus - The Hospitable Man, Jim Ramos at The MAG

    Bonus - The Hospitable Man, Jim Ramos at The MAG

    You've been taught 'hospitality' all wrong! When Jim Ramos discovered what it truly meant 2 years ago, it wrecked him. He realized that over 30 years of ministry, he hadn't been getting hospitality right, and even taught it to his kids wrong. In this episode, we hope you get a clearer picture of what hospitality really is and isn't. This will change what you do TODAY. The MAG is a weekly gathering of men in McMinnville, OR. This episode is from the Full Capacity Man Series.

This week, Elmo Winters joined Jim Ramos to make a case for why this worldview is antithetical to biblical Christianity.

Men in the arena

I just discovered the man in the arena podcast and it’s an injection of Christian masculinity that I need. I’m currently binge listening. Prayers of transformation for myself and to be my best version to help my family and the most people I can for what really matters, things that last beyond the grave. It starts now💪🏻

Wordanater ,

Every man needs to listen!

Men! I am so grateful for this podcast. They cover everything. From fatherhood to bring a husband to being a leader and more. Thanks!!
