Be a man, listen to this podcast.

Jim Ramos has helped re-build my relationship with Jesus and I’ve never met the man face to face. This is a podcast for men who want to be true leaders and warriors for Christ.

Terrible take

The marijuana take that I listened to was absolutely appalling. There are several natural reasons for marijuana and several healing benefits of marijuana and thc. Marijuana is a natural gift from God given to us. Has 0 to do with adultery and sex. That was a giant reach. I get his point of doing it for the wrong reasons like getting completely baked and dumb reasons. I am a Christian and I smoke weed daily to help with my anxiety, stress, and pains. I would much rather smoke a little bit of that then be in antidepressants, opiates, and other chemicals.

Love it

Jim talks to men in “normal talk”. He’s not politically correct, he’s relatable, and he comes from a place of constant learning. He teaching is based from the Bible and from his mistakes.
