E-64: The Bait that Hides the Hook – Part 1

In this episode, Jason drops some deep wisdom, warning, and encouragement as you personally battle against the temptations of the enemy. Jason exposes one of the enemy’s oldest and most effective strategies to destroy you  … presenting the bait and hiding the hook. Jason derives this powerful and practical insight in this episode from 16th century Puritan Preacher, John Owens … and from Dr. John MacArthur.

Then … at the conclusion of this episode … Jason gives us an update on his Keto Diet, his health, and the growing Mission Fund that we have set-up to help House of Hope International (a non-profit ministry that we are partnering with to help victims of sex-trafficking – and their children – to get into a gospel-centered rehabilitation program).
