The Forge EP018 | Identity
The Forge: Equipping God’s people to destroy Hell for a living. Do you know who you are? There’s a huge portion of the Christian church that struggles with Identity issues and self-worth. In this episode we delve into this issue and figure out ways to solve it. The Bible is pretty clear with telling you how much you’re worth and who you are exactly. You’re a child of the King and that says a lot.   Show Music: Get Back in the Game (Instrumental) |Forslund Svensson |EpidemicSound.com
The Forge EP017 | Sacrifice
The Forge: Equipping God’s people to destroy Hell for a living. We are called to be living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God. In order for us to do this we need to completely surrender our lives to Him. It’s almost impossible to surrender completely when we continue live in the past and hang on to things that Jesus paid a price to get rid of. He has forgotten it, why can’t you?

The Forge EP016 | Control
The Forge: Where Iron really sharpens Iron and we forge Men of Steel “Well, you know, God’s in control”. Is He? Is He really? You know, we lay this gem on some undeserving people sometimes. This has the potential to railroad someone’s faith, and really cause some undue turmoil in people. We, as Christians, really need to be careful with the cliches that we throw out there to people that are in dire need of genuine and true words of wisdom. If you don’t know what to say, shut up. I explain the issue with this on in particular this week. Show Music: Get Back in the Game (Instrumental) |Forslund Svensson |EpidemicSound.com
The Forge EP015 | Halloween w Tambour
The Forge: Where Iron really sharpens Iron and we forge Men of Steel Should Christians celebrate Halloween? Should they let their kids go out and play on this night of evil devil worship? Is it evil? Can the demons get on them? My wife joins me in this episode. Let’s talk about that. Show Music: Get Back in the Game (Instrumental) |Forslund Svensson |EpidemicSound.com
The Forge EP014 | Feet
The Forge: Where Iron really sharpens Iron and we forge Men of Steel How beautiful are your feet? Are they as beautiful as they should be? Are they the feet of the messengers of the Good News, or are they the feet of the hypocrites? My feet used to be the latter, now i strive for the former. I still fail; but thank God for Jesus and His grace! Thank God I still have time to change, to fix it, to show those people that I am no longer the hypocrite that I once showed them that I was! I will not have blood on my hands because of my pride. Show Music: Get Back in the Game (Instrumental) |Forslund Svensson |EpidemicSound.com
The Forge EP013 | Freedom
The Forge: Where Iron really sharpens Iron and we forge Men of Steel We have freedom. We don’t usually act like it. We fall prey to a sore loser, on a regular. I am guilty of this, on more than one occasion. We, as Christians, need to be better about recognizing our freedom from sin and living in it. We are no longer slaves to the law and sin. We should do a better job of showing it so that unbelievers can see something worth having. Show Music: Get Back in the Game (Instrumental) |Forslund Svensson |EpidemicSound.com
The Forge EP012 | Discipline
The Forge: Where Iron really sharpens Iron and we forge Men of Steel Changing bad habits sucks, sometimes. In this case it turned out to be awesome. Now, it sucked at first, but the benefits of exercising self-control have proven to be the best thing I could have ever done. Imagine that, following God’s word and using fruits of the Spirit turn out to work in my favor…This is part of my weight-loss story. It’s not complete, but I am miles from where I was, and the effects of physical discipline have proven to dramatically affect my spiritual discipline.

The Forge EP011 | Hope
The Forge: Where Iron really sharpens Iron and we forge Men of Steel There is no way we could ever earn righteousness. We fail miserably daily; yet, righteousness is freely given to those who believe. David did some pretty bad stuff and hurt a lot of people, but he remarked on God’s mercy and gracious forgiveness that is available to all who believe; if we acknowledge our guilt and humbly approach the throne, forgiveness is freely given. Even when there was no reason to hope, Abraham kept hoping. When God says, God does. Show Music: Get Back in the Game (Instrumental) |Forslund Svensson |EpidemicSound.com
The Forge EP010 | Grace
The Forge: Where Iron really sharpens Iron and we forge Men of Steel The Woman at the Well is a great story in the bible that shows God’s mercy, grace, forgiveness and promises. He shows love and mercy by simply having a conversation with the Samaritan Woman, then displays His grace and forgiveness when He makes note of her sins, showing that He already knew about them, yet they didn't matter. She did. THEN promises a renewing life in the Holy Spirit, and nourishment from the Father by doing His will and continuing His works. This story brings hope and helps demolish social barriers to bring hope to a lost generation while also bringing glory and honor to Him.  Show Music: Get Back in the Game (Instrumental) |Forslund Svensson |EpidemicSound.com
The Forge EP009 | Temptation
The Forge: Where Iron really sharpens Iron and we forge Men of Steel   Temptation sucks. It’s always trying to pull you off track, for me, the last couple of weeks have been a struggle with gluttony as I continue my weight loss journey. Some others may struggle with temptation from lust, some others stealing, still others cheating. Temptation doesn’t come from God, it is born from our evil and selfish desires. But there’s hope. God says He will never let you be tempted beyond what you can withstand. You can overcome it.   Show Music:   Get Back in the Game (Instrumental) |Forslund Svensson |EpidemicSound.com
The Forge EP008 | Boldness
The Forge: Where Iron really sharpens Iron and we forge Men of Steel   I want boldness. I NEED boldness. I’ve become such a wimp when it comes to boldly proclaiming the name of Jesus. He is the reason I am where I am. I have been so incredibly blessed, and I have so much to thank Him for, yet I fail miserably when it comes to talking with other people about Him and His goodness. I am praying for and seeking boldness to share the Good News that He is alive and ready to save others.   Show Music:   Get Back in the Game (Instrumental) |Forslund Svensson |EpidemicSound.com
The Forge EP007.5 | A Christ-Centered Approach to Kaepernick and Nike
The Forge: Where Iron really sharpens Iron and we forge Men of Steel   Christians, get over yourselves. Why have we sunk so much energy and emotions into the things of this world? Why is it so hard for us to fix our minds on what is true, what is honorable, what is just, what is pure and commendable? Why do we so easily sink to the depths of the world when we have truth and righteousness in our grasp?   Show Music:   Get Back in the Game (Instrumental) |Forslund Svensson |EpidemicSound.com
The Forge EP007 | Joy | ft Tambour
The Forge: Where Iron really sharpens Iron and we forge Men of Steel   What do you think joy is? Joy isn't happiness, that’s circumstantial and fleeting. Joy sustains and thrives. It’s supernatural and it’s one of the many reasons people will ask you why you’re so different from everyone else. Joy will bring you through struggles, pain suffering and downright despair. Joy is how you overcome. Joy comes from a relationship with Jesus; it’s how He holds you in His arms and comforts you when you cry. It comes from Him telling you, “I’ve got this” after you lay your burdens at His feet.   Show Music:   Get Back in the Game (Instrumental) | Forslund Svensson | EpidemicSound.com
The Forge EP006.5 | Good News w/ Tambour
The Forge: Where Iron really sharpens Iron and we forge Men of Steel I’m joined by my wife, Tambour, in this short blurb discussing the effects of the events surrounding the passing of Pastor Andrew Stoecklein. We hurt for the man and the family he has left behind, both his immediate family and his church family. We understand the impact that this will cause on the family and the church body and the ripple effect throughout the country when a pastor could be consumed by depression and anxiety. We want to share a brief message of truth and hope in a time of despair for those that are, or could be, hurting. Show Music: Get Back in the Game (Instrumental) |Forslund Svensson |EpidemicSound.com
The Forge EP006 | Humility
The Forge: Where Iron really sharpens Iron and we forge Men of Steel   Humility. Man, this is a subject that I needed some work in. However, I’ve learned that biblical humility isn’t the same humility as what the world says it is. The world says humility is low self-esteem, a soft disposition, lack of ambition and a conscience effort to downplay our success and accomplishments. These aren’t spiritual maturity, these are insecurity. Biblical humility is simply putting others’ needs and interests above our own. The path of humility doesn’t always pay off immediately. It’s not something we do for short term game, it’s a long game. It’s something we do because God says to do it, whether it works out in our favor or not.   Excerpts from “Thriving in Babylon” – Larry Osborne "Thriving in Babylon" on Amazon   Show Music:   Get Back in the Game (Instrumental) |Forslund Svensson |EpidemicSound.com
The Forge EP005 | Authentic Faith
The Forge: Where Iron really sharpens Iron and we forge Men of Steel   Where is your Faith? Who, or what, do you put faith in? You? Most of us, including myself, tend to put our faith in our own abilities. The problem with this is that we suck at it. We always screw it up. God has shown, proven and said repeatedly, that he will provide for, protect and safe guard us. He has promised this, yet we tend to forget that when trouble arises. We need to take comfort in this. We need to reset our sights in the right place and rest in that.   Show Music:   Get Back in the Game (Instrumental) |Forslund Svensson |EpidemicSound.com

The Forge EP003 | Iron Sharpens Iron
The Forge: Where Iron really sharpens Iron and we forge Men of Steel This episode touches on a subject that some may find “taboo” or may take issue with the truth of the matter, “Judging”. We live in an American culture today that has fostered the idea that being corrected on behavior, whether good or bad, is not ok. Everyone is “right” and no one can be “wrong”; how dare you “judge” me! This is “idea” has seeped its way into the American church and now Iron can no longer sharpen Iron. This is a problem, and this is wrong. We touch on a few aspects that show why this is and what God intended for the church and why fellowship and godly influence is important. The church is broken in this way. We must set ourselves apart. This hypocrisy is why the church is losing influence in America. No one wants what we have because they can’t see why its important by the way we live. Show Music: Get Back in the Game (Instrumental) |Forslund Svensson |EpidemicSound.com
The Forge EP002 | Authority
The Forge: Where Iron really sharpens Iron and we forge Men of Steel   Authority is something we all struggle with, whether it’s our parents, our supervisors, our managers, or our presidents, submitting to authority is tough. I struggle with it daily; however, I’ve been reading about Daniel recently and have learned different ways to cope with the struggle, ‘cause it’s real. We discuss ways to better handle the struggle and find out what being a Christian in the workplace should really look like.   Pride: 3:40   Facing Correction: 6:10   Respect: 8:35   Politics: 11:40   Honoring God’s Selection: 13:45     Show Music:   Get Back in the Game (Instrumental) |Forslund Svensson |EpidemicSound.com
