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.

    Is Prayer Evil Or Effective?

    There is a controversy over a bill that was proposed for “a moment of silence” in schools where students are encouraged to pray or simply to remain silent before starting the school day. Republicans have disappointed us yet again by rejecting the bill. Today Cooper Stuff has journalist Billy Hallowell on the show to discuss. He has been covering the story and has great insight to why politicians on the left and right are both leading us astray.

    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.

    I’m A Christian, What’s Next?

    Today's episode is a positive, exciting encouragement of what the Christian life is about. It was birthed from a conversation with a friend this weekend who said, "Now that I'm a Christian, what's next?" Many people ask this same question: What do I do now? Today's topic is one of my favorite things to talk about in the Christian life: the Word and the power of the Spirit. Let's go!

    Do Pro-Lifers Care About Women?

    Today we bring you into our personal lives so that you can see the ministry that the Coopers, Skillet, and my church support. With the news of the possible overturning of Roe last week, social media has gone wild. I continue to see many people (including Christians) making the claim that pro-lifers only care about the needs of the unborn while ignoring the needs of moms and women in general. Is this true? Today we interview Ginna Cross, the executive director of the Alliance Women's Clinic to …

    5 Reason People Are Deconstructing. A Response

    Today's episode is a response to an article published on church growth expert Carey Nieuwhof's website called "5 Real reasons young people are deconstructing." There are some things to take seriously about this article because it certainly is a problem that young people are leaving the church. But does this article give good solutions or bad solutions? And why do so many Christian elite establishment people refuse to see deconstruction as something to be concerned about? Finally, as I will …

    Another Bizarre Assault on Confused Children

    Get ready for yet another bizarre assault on confused children. A children's hospital in Portland gives instructions on how boys can tuck their genitals to become more sex-positive. The medical establishment have become the secular priests and kings of our day. They institute radical culture change and then accuse us of being divisive when we push back. These people do not love our children. They hate them. We must engage and push back. Contrary to popular opinion, it is the loving thing to …

    Part 3: The Elite’s War On Christian Nationalism

    Today we have Dr. Joseph Boot join the show to discuss and rebut an article by David French. French claims that America is more Christian now than ever before. Is this true?

Believe me, you don't want to miss this episode with Dr. Boot!

Today's episode contains some bombshell reports. We discuss Cooper Stuff's position on the matter and we contend that even our detractors will find us more reasonable than the Christian elites who bullied us into their agenda using "love thy neighbor" rhetoric -- all while demanding that we give to Caesar what belongs to God.
