Pagans worshiped many gods (polytheism). Christians were allowed to worship Jesus along with the pagan gods as one among equals. Caesar too claimed divinity. But Christians said, "No!" They would bow only to the one true God and refused to burn incense to pagan deities.

Because of their unflagging principals they became persecuted outcasts, treated with malice. Sound familiar?

With his usual enthusiasm, Steve explains how our culture is falling back into a new paganism (we call it pluralism) with the West worshiping at the alters of comfort, affluence and self indulgence.

He’ll get your heart pumping as he challenges you to make a deadly choice to stay faithful or to keep your head and lose your soul.

Audio Sample 1We have many powerful tools to proclaim the Gospel, like the internet and Catholic Radio. However, we are also at a disadvantage compared to the early christians because many people already know everything they think they want to know about Jesus and the Chruch.

Audio Sample 2Christianity is true and all other philosophies and religious fall short. So why are we so afraid to share our faith in public. Steve encounters all sorts of people during his travels including this story about an atheist who noticed his crucifix.

Audio Sample 3Listen to the fun story of how Steve's son used the circling water in a swimming pool to teach his kids how to fight against the culture.

Audio Sample 4The pagan Romans' gods gave no hope to the people, but the Christians knew about the resurrection and that it profited them nothing to gain the world and lose their soul. Because of this they died with honor, nobility and great hope...they converted many pagans just through their deaths.

Audio Sample 5Confirmation is a powerful sacrament, how can we present it to our children in a way that will help them feel the excitement of what is really happening in this sacrament. Steve got this boy's attention with a sword.


Feedback on this talk:

I first learned of you when you came to Saginaw, MI in February a couple years ago for the men's conference held at St. Thomas Aquinas. I was at the beginning of my faith journey there. My girlfriend and I had just broken up because I was Catholic who didn't know my faith and she was a Assembly's of God Protestant. In a service at her church one day, when the pastor finished his sermon, he said something that disturbed me, though at the time I didn't know why. He said, (paraphrase) "Ok, Ladies and Gentlemen, you are free to go. Oh! and if anyone wants communion, it will be sitting here at the corner of the stage. Just come up and take it if you'd like." Something hit me that day that I knew that was wrong. Even though now I know they don't believe in our Lord in the Eucharist, and that only a Catholic Priest can consecrate the host, it still effected me greatly. This in turn started the turmoil in Renee and I's relationship. 
Fast forward to the Men's Conference, and you were giving your talk on Proclaiming the Gospel. The bit you do when you involve the congregation in the dangers of the lives of the early Christians put fire in me. How you say how our Parish suddenly get surrounded by Roman soldiers. The centurion comes up and says "We've noticed you Christians haven't been burning incense to Ceaser! Now you will form two lines, one here to burn incense and receive a certificate as a Roman citizen in good standing. Or, you will form a line here with Brutus, who has a big ax, and you know what he's gonna do with that." 
Then you paused. "Well?!" and then you paused again.
Mr. Ray, if you had pause for even 1 more second, you would have had a 22 year old kid up in the Sanctuary with you, his head on the slab to die for Jesus.  
Since then I have consumed and have been consumed with learning all I can about Jesus and His Church. I know I can always make more time for Gods word, and I know I can follow His Word better every day. Though its only been about 2 years into my faith journey and I can't imagine a more wonderful time in my life so far. Now, Renee and I are engaged, (August 6th 2016 is the wedding) and she has started RCIA and I as her sponsor. Thank you Mr. Ray, and if you are ever at the radio station on a Friday, please look for me. I will most likely be right outside from Mike Jone's office working on the middle laptop next to Dan. I would like to give you a hug
