    Author Chris Walter in the hot seat on Skid Row Chatter with host Tom Pitts

    in Books

     SKID ROW CHATTER host Tom Pitts gets Canadian author Chris Walter in the host seat on tonight's show. 

     Chris Walter, a recovering drug addict and hope-to-die punk rocker, began writing purposefully in 1998 after realizing that his life up to that point had been largely meaningless.  His first published novel, Punk Rules OK went largely unnoticed except by detractors, inspiring him to take a DIY approach to the game. He started GFY Press and began to write, publish, and distribute a steady stream of fiction novels and music biographies. In 2001, GFY Press expanded to include unschooled troublemakers Simon Snotface, Stewart Black, and an Australian, Drew Gates, drawing further criticism from the established literary industry. 16 years later, Chris Walter and GFY Press remain unrepentant and committed. Chris is the author of more than twenty-five books, many of which are also available electronically. He has also contributed to numerous publications including The Georgia Straight, Nerve, Razorcake,The Big Takeover, Mass Movement, Vice, Loud Fast Rules, and Absolute Underground.  

    Host Tom Pitts' short stories have been published in the usual spots by the usual suspects. His novella,PIGGYBACK, and his novel, HUSTLE, are available from Snubnose Press. His new novella KNUCKLEBALL is out now.  Tom is an acquisitions editor at Gutter Books and editor of Flash Fiction Offensive. http://tompittsauthor.com

    Operation Remnant Addresses Spiritual Abuse

    in The Bible

    Join the Operation Remnant Team as we continue our discussion on the topic of Spiritual Abuse. We will be discussing the chapter of Spiritual Abuse from the book Tired of Trying to Measure Up by Jeff VanVonderen. In this chapter, Jeff describes how spiritual abuse works, abuse in the Old Testament, abuse in the Gospels, abuse in the Epistles, and abuse in the church today.

    We'll examine real-world examples, ranging from, inflicting emotional and psychological damage upon members to sexual assault at the hands of those entrusted to help spiritually mature those seeking a relationship with our Heavenly Father.

    Jeff interjects scripture from the books of Jeremiah, Matthew, and Galatians, which we, the Operation Remnant Team, will take an even closer look at what was going on then and how it applies to modern-day believers. Has the body of the Messiah become lazy by placing too much of its allegiance into men and therefore become disobedient to Yah? Is this all a plot of the enemy to deceive believers into giving up their authority and power as Yah’s anointed or are believers deceiving themselves by allowing leadership to dictate the “working out of their salvation”? In Psalms 118:8, Yah said, "It is better to take refuge in Yahuah than to trust in man"; then He found it necessary to emphasize "princes" in the very next verse. Is there a message there for the believer that has been overlooked?

    Spiritual abuse is a widespread epidemic which few dare to acknowledge, few dare to discuss, and fewer still, will challenge. One thing is for certain, those who have, or are, experiencing spiritual abuse are not alone. It’s time the abuse stops, the healing to starts, and believers experience truth the way our Heavenly Father instituted it from the beginning. It’s time to take back your authority and walk in Yah's freedom.

    Operation Remnant Addresses Spiritual Abuse: No Holds Barred

    in The Bible

    Join the Operation Remnant (OR) Team as we address the very sensitive topic (but one that needs to be brought from behind the walls of the church) - Spiritual Abuse. It's time for the Body of our Messiah to come out of this great deception, that the way church leadership is currently functioning is the way Yahuah meant for it to function. Is your church leadership truly aligned with scripture or following doctrines of men? Are you a victim of spiritual abuse or defending the abusers?

    Believers are being used and abused, wounded and crushed, cheated and mistreated, and it's not all coming from "the world". It's coming from the leadership inside these buildings that have been placed on pedestals and have become idols of worship along with the leadership that lords over Yah's sheep. Are we coming into unity or being shunned by fellow believers?

    Spiritual abuse has become the elephant in the room. Believers see it and will overlook it. They'll look around it, and turn a deaf ear to it until it becomes "the norm"; so much so, that believers will make excuses as to why this type of behavior is in the church and defend the leadership who is causing the abuse.

    During this series, we are going to present 13 questions to you, the listener, allowing you to determine for yourself if you are indeed in an abusive environment. Yahusha, Himself, said, "You know that the rulers of the gentiles are masters over them, and those who are great exercise authority over them. But it shall not be so among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you, let him be your servant. And whoever wishes to be first among you, let him be your servant, even as the Son of Adam did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."

    If it's TRUTH is doesn't have a problem being challenged.

    Setting a Trap for God: The Aramaic Prayer of Jesus

    in The Bible

    Join the Operation Remnant Team as we delve into Rocco A. Errico’s book, Setting a Trap For God: The Aramaic Prayer of Jesus.  We’ll examine what Errico has to say about the prayer itself, what the prayer meant to the disciples and followers of the Messiah, and what these words hold for us today. Is there more to this prayer than modern-day believers have interpreted?  Has the English translation diluted the power behind the prayer?  Have believers missed the meaning altogether thereby allowing a powerful source to lie dormant for centuries?  Can this power still be obtained by the modern-day believer? 

    We’ll take a close look and breakdown supporting scriptural text used by Errico to get a better understanding of his position on this topic. What does the author actually mean when he says, “Setting a Trap for God”?  Join us as we walk step-by-step through each of the fourteen chapters examining everything, as the Operation Remnant (OR) Team is known for, pulling from the word of Yah and multiple resources, to get understanding and possibly another piece of our Creator's original intent.  You may not want to miss this!

    Are the Gifts of the Holy Spirit Still in Operation Today?

    in The Bible

    Are the gifts of the Holy Spirit listed in 1 Corinthians 12: 7 - 10 still in operation today?  This can be a divisive question among even the most committed believers in the body of Christ.  On one hand, some Christians argue that the gifts died out in the 1st century, and on the other, there are followers of Christ who believe that the gifts will operate until Christ returns.  Join us as we inspect God’s word to see what it has to say about this important topic.
