Cooper Stuff Podcast

Cooper Stuff Podcast is an in depth look at what drives John Cooper (lead singer of Skillet); a commentary on culture from a traditional Biblical paradigm:

Has modern culture stolen your world view? With all the screaming voices, who do you trust? How much have you been subversively influenced? Cooper Stuff aims to point out subtle and not so subtle influences on culture with a traditional, Biblical world view/emphasis… while boiling complex issues down to simple language.

    The Suicide Of The West

    The destruction of the West is not due to outside enemies, but rather due to suicide. We are all participating in the demise of a civilization that was built upon a Christian worldview. Some in the church are also attempting to tear down the West without understanding what the fight is even about. Today, we discuss the view of absolute truth versus critical theory; the actress Jennifer Laurence's statements on gun control; Desantis sending immigrants to Martha's Vineyard; soaring crime rates; …

    No, Loan Forgiveness Isn’t The Same As Sin Forgiveness

    Do Christians have to support debt cancellation, or is it an example of unequal weights and measurements? The Biden administration announced a ten thousand dollar student loan cancellation per recipient. The Christian Left began a frenzy of finger pointing towards Christians who weren't supportive of the move, claiming that since Christ cancelled our debts, we must support debt cancellation. Is this true? Or is this crazy! Also, we are joined by Dr. Michael Brown for a quick 10 minute talk. …

    Resist or Submit? With Joseph Boot

    Resist tyranny or submit to tyranny? There is a divide amongst believers about how the Church is supposed to respond to authority.

    Abortion Free Wisconsin

    Wisconsin is abortion-free! Absolutely amazing news and Cooper Stuff has some questions about what this means. We asked our friend Ginna Cross-who runs a pregnancy health center--to come on the show to answer questions.

(3) we read a Twitter thread from a pastor that is regurgitating lies and deception from the …

  • Cooper Stuff Podcast Goodbye Roe! My Emotional Rollercoaster Play in Edifi Player

    Goodbye Roe! My Emotional Rollercoaster

    This was a weekend of celebration! The overturning of Roe vs Wade is truly a miracle and blessing from God! Having said that, there seems to be a lack of celebration from half of the American church. Today, we talk about why; we name names; we read their tweets; we play some of their videos; we get controversial; we speak some truth. This is one of the longest episodes we have ever done, but it's not every weekend that a wicked law is overturned. To God be the glory.

He has been covering the story and has great insight to why politicians on the left and right are both leading us astray.

  • Cooper Stuff Podcast Culture Of Death Play in Edifi Player

    Culture Of Death

    School shootings, violence, hate, abortion, suicide…are these issues tied together? Today, instead of discussing policy issues we look at the broader topic of a culture of life versus a culture of death. We read from Proverbs 3 and show how simple belief in God's Word could change a nation. Hope cannot be found in politics, policy, or any government. Hope is found in Jesus Christ and his Word.
