Biblical Manhood with Noel Fenderson
Our guest is Noel Fenderson, a police officer, business owner, brother in Christ, father and husband. Biblical manhood is extremely important in today's society that is increasingly trying to weaken men.
Enter the Lion
Today's guest is Josh Cook, he is the founder of Enter the Lion, a ministry for first responders. Josh and Adam discuss critical incidents, post traumatic stress and anxiety that come from a career in Law Enforcement and how Josh has been set free from the bondage of anxiety.
Salty and Light with Griffin Coiner
Griffin is an entrepreneur and businessman, having created his own mustache wax. He's also a former firefighter with years of experience. Griffin recently went through a time of faith-building that has led him to move from Texas to Utah as God has directed his path.
Should Pastors and Politics Mix?
Mike and Adam discuss whether pastors should be political or not, especially from the pulpit. Also, should Christians vote? Just a couple of the topics discussed in this latest podcast.
Look Up! Your Redemption Draws Near
Events going on around the world point to the imminent rapture of the church and the return of Christ to establish His Kingdom. Look up!
A new movie that tells the story of Pastor Chuck Smith and the original Calvary Chapel was released recently and Pastor Mike offers his review of the movie. Adam and Mike also discuss how the church should respond to those who may not "fit the mold" of the church.
Michael and Adam discuss a newly erected statue in NYC that supposedly represents Ruth Ginsburg, but looks like it honors something even more sinister. What do idols like this say about the spiritual state of a country? Seems pretty obvious, but certainly worth talking about.
Building Unique Ministries with Scott Robertson
Scott Robertson is a Game Warden in the great state of Texas. He is also heavily involved in a couple local ministries as part of his local church community.
Characteristics of the Christ (re-upload)
Isaiah 9:6 and 7 tell us some characteristics of the coming Christ, prophesied hundreds of years before He was born. Adam goes over these characteristics in light of where we are today.

Trauma & Faith
First responders experience trauma and critical incidents multiple times throughout their careers. Adam & Michael discuss some Biblical tools to help us survive mentally and spiritually following trauma.
Push Back the Darkness
The enemy is slowly working his way into our country, our schools and even the Church. We have to understand his tactics and push back the darkness.
A Courageous Faith
Start living your faith courageously!
Wisdom from Pastor Mike
Adam listens to Michael sharing his pastorly wisdom
The Heart of David
David was chosen to be king of Israel after Saul had disobeyed the Lord. Jesse's eldest sons, though they appeared kingly, were not chosen by God. Why? God told Samuel, "Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart (see 1 Samuel 16:7). Ultimately David was chosen as the next king of Israel. What about David's heart made him the Lord's choice for the throne?
Moral Authority and Influence
When a police officer or pastor loses their moral authority, can they ever get it back? How does one lose their influence? Mike and Adam discuss the importance of maintaining our morality, especially in the ministry. They also discuss a pastor who has recently been in the spotlight for the wrong reasons.

The State of Things
The state of the union, the state of the church, the state of the world. . . We are living in some wild times. Everyone is on edge and seemingly about to explode. Thankfully, Mike offers some insight into what we really need. This one didn't end the way I thought it would.
The Delay of the Day of the Lord
Does the Lord delay His return? As Peter indicated, this is a common theme in our day. Just as people mocked Noah before the Flood, so people now mock Christians who await the rapture of the church.
Adam and Mike talk about a passage from 2 Peter in light of current events.

Hope in Depression
The biggest necessity in the face of depression and anxiety is hope. Without hope we are just treading water in shark infested waters with no land in sight.
Adam talks about a recent experience he had and why he believes the missing ingredient was hope.

Michael Shares from Micah
Michael shares some wisdom this week from Micah 6:8
Fathers are a necessity to raising up the next generation properly. It is especially important for first responders to raise their kids the right way, as we see the way they can turn out if we aren't present.
How can a parent who is also a police officer or firefighter be most effective in raising their kids? That's the question Michael and Adam tackle in this episode of Thin Line Believers Podcast.

Undaunted with Kyle Thompson
Boldness is a Christian characteristic that has been missing in many modern-day Christians. Why do we lack boldness and what do we do about it?
Kyle Thompson is the founder and host of Undaunted Life: A Man's Podcast. He is very outspoken and unapologetic when it comes to Christian values and morality. This one will motivate you to push back against the darkness.
Here's the episode Kyle cited: https://www.undaunted.life/podcast/315

Gun control makes its way to the forefront of political debates again. Canada presents legislation to (eventually) disarm the public. What should we as Christians believe? Was the Second Amendment a mistake? What is the real issue here, and how do we fix it?
We talk about trials and tribulations a lot. That's because everyone faces them constantly and if we aren't ready spiritually, we can easily succumb to the depression and anxiety that follow. Listen in and be encouraged!

Porn Studies? They've Lost Their Minds!
A university in Utah is offering a class to study hardcore porn. Does the Bible indicate this kind of depravity anywhere? Yes, yes it does. Michael and Adam discuss this craziness in light of Bible prophecy.
Is God Unjust? My 2 Cents
Recently an opinion piece was published in the NY Times expressing the opinion that God was brutal. It even compared God to Putin's war on Ukraine. Here's my opinion as a believer.
Times are Dark, But Sunday is Coming!
Good Friday was rough for the disciples. Saturday was dark and depressing. What they didn't know is Sunday was going to bring new life! The same goes for us. Times are dark right now, but Jesus is coming back soon!

The Word on the Street With Felix Cervantes
Felix is a former firefighter, police officer and a veteran. Felix has a ministry called the Word on the Street that can be found at www.thewordonthestreet.org. You can also follow him on Instagram and Facebook under the same name. Felix has a wild story from East LA to being in two separate traffic collisions with drunk drivers. His story brought him to a low point in his life where he me Christ. His is an incredible story worth hearing.
Life and Death
To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven: A time to be born, And a time to die; A time to plant, And a time to pluck what is planted; A time to kill, And a time to heal; A time to break down, And a time to build up; A time to weep, And a time to laugh; A time to mourn, And a time to dance; -Ecclesiastes 3:1-4
This passage of Scripture framed the conversation with Mike and Adam this week.
There is a great deception being pushed in the world today. Everything from the plandemic to the war in Ukraine, the media has an agenda that is becoming more and more obvious. As first responders, we need to know the truth before we ever set foot into the world, or we'll be susceptible to any lie that comes our way. The best way to identify a counterfeit is to be so familiar with the authentic that any fake will be easily distinguished. In Matthew 24, the first thing Jesus said to the disciples regarding end times was "Be sure you are not deceived". It seems that is one of the main signs we are to be aware of, and it's happening all around.
A Healthy Career in Law Enforcement? - BONUS Episode
Clint and Josh are law enforcement officers with nearly 40 years of combined experience. They have both experienced their share of trauma and in this bonus episode, we discuss that experience and how to watch out for your brothers.
The Horses are Saddled and Ready!
In Revelation 6 we are introduced to what we now call the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. With them come all sorts of horrors, such as hyperinflation, plagues, famines, war and more. With what is currently happening on the world scene, it appears to us these horses are saddled and ready to ride. It's just a matter of time. Only God knows the day and the hour as to when these things will kick off. We need to know what is going on as it concerns Bible prophecy. Why? Because it's in the Bible.
Adam and Michael discuss these four horsemen in light of what we are seeing. Moreso, they offer some hope for the Believer in these days.

Bonus Episode - Gratitude with Jim Crowley
In this bonus episode, Adam was able to sit down with Chaplain Jim Crowley to talk about his life in retirement. Jim talks about some of the methods he's using to help his mental and spiritual health, to include gratitude.
Jim was the co-founder of Central Oregon Public Safety Chaplaincy and spent several years caring for law enforcement and fire personnel in their day to day duties. He still enjoys training up peers in Critical Incident Stress Management.
What characteristics do the modern Christian man portray? Is he harmless and straight laced? Some of the most dangerous men throughout our history have been Christian men.
Weakness is not to be confused with meekness. The modern Christian man needs to be prepared to stand for what is right, even if it means getting our hands dirty. Enjoy this latest podcast with Mike and Adam.
Anxiety and Faith
Sometimes anxiety will manifest itself due to a lack of faith. Michael and Adam discuss this topic in light of the recorded healings Jesus performed in Matthew, and the emphasis He placed on faith. In one case, Jesus "marveled" at a man's faith. In another case, the disciples "marveled" at Jesus's calming of a storm, due to their lack of faith.
If you struggle with anxiety, we feel you and we can relate. This topic of discussion was as much for you as it was for us.
Current Events Update - Phoenix Police, Russia and more
Current Events Update - Phoenix Police, Russia and more
Michael and Adam talk about several current events and what it means in light of Bible prophecy.
The world is being prepared for what the Bible tells us will take place in the future. Are you ready? Is your spiritual house in order?
Sherman Tank - Interview with Retired Deputy Sherman Garnett
Line of Duty Deaths and Suicide
Well this is an unpleasant topic, but one we cannot ignore. A law enforcement couple who committed suicide recently in Florida, and several line of duty deaths have caught our attention and are very deserving of at least a conversation. Mike and Adam discuss these topics and give a little hint as to what the next topic will be.
Hellfire and Brimstone
The horrors of hell aren't often discussed, but they should be. Jesus spoke of hell on several occasions and in this video we discuss just one of them. People aren't sent to hell, they choose it.
If someone decides they don't want anything to do with Jesus, they don't want anything to do with God, the only place to escape is in hell. Hell was created for the devil and his angels. You and I have a choice, and it's the most important decision of our lives. #faith #christianity
New Year Prophecy Update 2022
Here's a rapid fire update about several things that have occurred in the past year that point us to the end times as described in the Bible.
With several headlines, Mike and Adam take us through events that coincide with the Biblical end of days as described in several locations to include Daniel, Ezekiel, Isaiah, 2 Timothy, Matthew, Luke, Thessalonians and Revelation.
This update is to provide hope to the listener as well as a sense of urgency as Jesus Christ is going to return for his Church very very soon. In this episode, we'll provide ample proof that time is short.
What is my 'WHY'?
Why should we exercise? Why should we work at being physically fit? There are innumerable reasons, but you have to be able to find your own 'why' when it comes to fitness, otherwise that New Year's resolution will end before the ball drops.
This week Mike and Adam chat about fitness as first responders and also in ministry. Join us as Mike brings us his perspective as he has a background in ministry, fire suppression, law enforcement and fitness.
