The guys discuss the label “evangelical” and what has led to its terrible reputation in secular culture. They unpack some of the things we tend to add to Jesus that needlessly hurt our witness.

Also, they talk about the challenge of being a Christian in a secular band and the implications that it can have on your ability to pursue God’s call on your life and art.

Oh…and David shares the dangers of using coffins to impress your potential parent-in-laws

Nothing Changes Without Courage

God wants to use your life to change the world, but I’ve learned that this will not happen without courage. The trouble is that there is a lot of confusion over just what it is.

Is busyness a disease in our culture? Do Christian artists need to talk about Jesus in their lyrics?

While Chad is apparently, trekking through the hills of Nepal handing out copies of his new book “One Thousand Risks”, the rest of the guys have a spirited discussion around these questions... and it gets pretty intense.

Artist Interview: No Longer Music

No Longer Music (NLM) is an evangelistic music and theater production led by David Pierce, the founder of Steiger International. For over thirty years, NLM has used the stage to communicate the Gospel of Jesus all over the world.

This month, I had the pleasure of interviewing my friend, Ben Pierce, the lead vocalist of No Longer Music. Ben is also the director of Come&Live! and host of the Provoke & Inspire podcast. He shared about NLM’s vision and what makes them different from other bands.

What is it about men in tights throwing a ball that can cause people to weep, climb poles, or burn down a city? Is devotion to sports an unchallenged idol in Christian culture?

While David, Chad and Ben discuss these questions Luke is apparently still being dragged around Poland by a pony.

Our Weakness, His Power!

One second I was talking with my dad and Valery (one of Steiger’s Ukrainian missionaries), and an instant later, it felt as though a bomb had gone off. Stunned and covered in debris, it was hard to process what had just happened. We were on tour in Brazil with No Longer Music, and our driver had gotten into a lane not intended for the height of our bus. Traveling at well over 60 miles per hour, we smashed into a horizontal steel beam, knocking our air conditioning unit clean off the bus’s roof.

I had never experienced a more violent moment in my whole life.

The Instant reaction podcast is back!! After being away on tour for a couple of weeks, most of the regulars (except Luke) are back and rowdy as usual.

Wasting no time, the guys dive right back into controversial waters and discuss whether a small Christian University located in St Paul, Minnesota should be hosting Snoop Dogg as part of Super Bowl celebrations. Can this be justified as a business decision or a way to influence the “scene?” Not surprisingly, the guys have an opinion, and it’s not as straightforward as you might expect.
