#33 The Church’s Acceptable Sins

Every time and every culture has certain sins that it excuses, ignores or tries to justify. We are no exception to the rule! American churches are hiding some pretty big sins simply because they don’t think they’re so bad.

In this episode of Now is the Time I talk about the three biggest acceptable sins in American churches today.

By the way, make sure you stay tuned until the end of the podcast for a surprise interview!


This podcast is really the continuation of a conversation I started on Facebook and Twitter about acceptable sins in the church. Check out the conversation below.


I’m excited to announce the launch of my book “What if… How to Kill Worry and Anxiety Before They Kill You!”

About the book

Did you know that excessive worry and anxiety can lead to real physical problems like memory loss, a weak immune system and even heart attack? Worry isn’t something you can afford to ignore, it’s dangerous and if you don’t take care of it really could kill you!

In the book Caleb takes you beyond the outward symptoms of worry to understand its root causes. He shows you that worry isn’t just an annoying personality trait. It’s a problem that must be dealt with at the heart level, the longer you let worry go on the more damage it will do in your life and the lives of those around you!

Thankfully there is a way out! Caleb doesn’t offer superficial tricks or temporary fixes! These are real solutions that you can put to practice now and reap the benefits from for years to come!

This book will open your eyes to the shocking truth of what worry really is and where it comes from. It will expand your understanding of how worry destroys lives from the inside out. It will teach you to recognize worry it all it’s ugly forms and then it will give you the tools you need to kill it before it does any more damage to your life!

I am a pastor, missionary, and preacher of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in Ukraine since 2007. God blessed me with a wonderful wife and 5 amazing children! My greatest passion is to teach, encourage, and exhort others to turn to Jesus, who is Savior, Lord, and God!

    Hiring or assigning others to do our jobs as parents is definitely one of them. I think the biggest one is the one that’s been around since the beginning; legalism, thinking we can follow a set of rules to attain the heart of our Father.

    Liked that wrap up interview with your daughter!

    Congratulations on getting your book done!!!

    • Yes, Floyd, unfortunately legalism has been rearing it’s head for a long time, even in Jesus’ day!

      I’m glad you listened to the podcast until the end, Noelle had been begging me to interview her.

      Thanks for the congratulations, I’ve still got some editing work to finish up so that August first date is already looking pretty close!
