Mt.6:24 ,

Rock the boat!

Love the podcast!

Don’t be afraid to shake things up by reminding those in your audience who claim Christ that Jesus taught the LITERAL selling of all one owns to give to the poor and to stop working for money by choosing to work for Love instead (Mt. 6:24-33).

Who knows, the sharing of these profoundly simple truths could send shockwaves of revival throughout the world.

Peace & blessings.

Jahmen.

i dony have a nickname ,

How could it not be GREAT?!

It’s Chapelle and Blackstar…. Enough said! Worth the subscription.

Datttt Boiiiiii ,

Love the podcast

This is honestly one of the most creative and thought out podcasts available today. In a flooded market of no prep talking off the cuff, these guys have used the art form to the fullest of their capabilities. Original songs, editing, thought provoking conversations, it’s inspiring really.
