The Porn Episode
The world is full of sexualized images in advertisements, movies, tv, and especially online. Huge numbers of men and women use pornography to the point of addiction.
In this spirited episode the Carnivore Theology guys discuss the problem with porn, how a Christian can stay faithful while surrounded by sex, what we can do to protect ourselves, and how to our explain view to others.

Once again, We Need Your Feedback
We’re working out the bugs, but before we launch this thing, we need your help! So please, give it a listen, and give us your feedback in the comments section below, by e-mailing me, or commenting on our Facebook page. We’re also on Twitter! We’d really appreciate it.
I’m so excited to present our first, unofficial, episode of a new series I’m a part of called “Carnivore Theology“. What’s that, you ask?
“Carnivore Theology” is a podcast where one normal guy asks two abnormal pastors questions about life, religion, the universe and everything.
Our mission is “To help Christians move from milk to meat, past the basic principles of the faith to become wise, skilled, world-changing followers of Jesus Christ.”
Our Key Verse is: “For everyone who lives on milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, since he is a child. But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil.” (Hebrews 5:13-14)
We Need Your Feedback
We just recorded our first (unofficial) Carnivore Theology episode and agreed that it would be a good idea to send it out to our friends to see what they thought. That’s why it’s “unofficial”, because we’re hoping to work out the bugs and kick it off officially in September. It’s so new that Chad hasn’t even sent me his picture yet… hence the volleyball. So please, give it a listen, and give us your feedback in the comments section below, by e-mailing me, or commenting on our Facebook page. We’re also on Twitter! We’d really appreciate it.

And something special we’ll be doing for these podcasts is putting the raw, uncut conversation up on our YouTube Channel. You can also check that out below:
Be the New Intro Voice for the Art of the Christian Ninja Podcast!
Despite what you’ve heard, I don’t love listening to the sound of my own voice, so I’m looking for someone to introduce the podcast. I was going to do this quietly, but I think it would be way more fun to do this via a contest!
If you, or someone you know, has a decent microphone, a great reading-voice, and is willing to read a single paragraph for my podcast intro — go for it! (Or, if you are good friends with Liam Neeson or Morgan Freeman, ask if they’ll do it!)
To be entered into the contest record yourself (I use Audacity) reading the paragraph below (a couple of times) in the highest possible quality and attach it to an e-mail or instant message on Facebook. I’ll give them a listen and choose the winner on July 31, 2014.
What’s the prize, you ask?
I’ll ship you a hardcover copy of “Seizing Your Divine Moment” by Erwin McManus!
Here’s the paragraph to read:
“Welcome to Art of the Christian Ninja, hosted by Pastor Allan Descheneau, a podcast dedicated to helping you find the tools and inspiration you need to pursue a deeper, consistent and more meaningful relationship with God. To learn more, visit the blog at ArtoftheChristianNinja.com.”
I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
A fellow pastor (Chad Graham), a good friend of mine (Steve Bastian) and I are in the process of putting together a new podcast/vodcast where we spend some time chatting about big questions and current events. So, just for fun, I put together an intro for him. He liked it so much that we agreed to share it!
Check it out.
[Yes, that was “Pinky and the Brain” in the background. Seemed appropriate. I’m not going to tell you which of us is “The Genius” and which is “Insane”.]
Sharing this also gives us an opportunity to gauge interest in this kind of program. Is it something you would want to listen to?
