listen to audio mp3 It’s All About Grace    posted March 29, 2017
Greg concludes, in this final sermon of his three-part series on God’s grace, that we either trust in what Jesus has done, is doing, or will do – or we trust in what we have done, are doing, and will do. We must make a choice – it cannot be both.
listen to audio mp3 Grace Alone    posted March 28, 2017
We are justified by a righteousness apart from the law. We struggle with God’s grace because humanly we can’t comprehend why God favors us with his grace. He has nothing to gain – he has no apparent motive. It’s all about faith alone, grace alone, Christ alone.
listen to audio mp3 In Need of Grace    posted March 27, 2017

listen to audio mp3 The Enemy of Faith    posted March 22, 2017

listen to audio mp3 God Is Faithful    posted March 21, 2017
Given enough time, human beings will eventually let you down. But God can always be relied upon. God always comes through.
listen to audio mp3 Child-like Belief    posted March 20, 2017

listen to audio mp3 When Religion Gives God a Bad Name    posted March 17, 2017

listen to audio mp3 Jesus Is Looking For You    posted March 14, 2017
Come and be refreshed and cleansed at the Lord’s Supper. Consider the lengths to which Jesus goes as he looks for each and every one of us. Give glory to God who brings Light into the dark places of our lives.

The good news is that because of God’s grace we do not get what we deserve.
listen to audio mp3 The End of Religion    posted March 2, 2017

listen to audio mp3 Making All Things New    posted February 28, 2017
The focus of today’s sermon is that Christian life is always something new. Authentic Christianity often differs widely from the status quo of our culture. Authentic Christianity is also the precise opposite of religious traditions, prompting many in Christendom to protest, in a vain attempt to safeguard their traditions saying, "but, we’ve never done it that way before."
listen to audio mp3 The True Riches    posted February 27, 2017
In today’s message, Pastor Greg shows how Isaiah is using money to draw attention to God’s amazing riches for us. Isaiah's message encourages us to buy into the heavenly economy of God's amazing grace.

Many ask some form of the question, “Am I getting all I want, all I need, out of life?” Greg discusses that question in the light of Paul’s admonition that we “present our bodies as living sacrifices.”

Greg shows that Christ’s invitation for us to come to him promises rest FROM religion, its legalism, its demands and its failure to give us rest.
listen to audio mp3 The Real Love Story    posted February 17, 2017

listen to audio mp3 Authority To Love    posted February 16, 2017
When humans think of authority, we think of power. But Jesus brings a new kind of authority – the authority of love. The authority to love. Jesus does not impose his authority, rather he rules by consent.
listen to audio mp3 This Magic Moment    posted February 15, 2017
By God’s grace we can live free of guilt and shame – we can implicitly trust in God, just like a little child. We can come to know God in a magic moment, and live eternally with him in magic moments.

listen to audio mp3 Righteousness by Law - Or by Faith?    posted February 13, 2017
Didn’t Jesus say that we have to become perfect? Didn’t he say that we will never see his kingdom unless our righteousness surpasses that of the super-religious scribes and Pharisees of his day? So what is all this grace stuff about then?
listen to audio mp3 Hooking Up With God    posted February 10, 2017
God’s relationship with you is far from the spiritual equivalent of a one night stand. Commitment and permanence are the basis of God’s relationship with you, and the foundation of how he wants you to know him.
listen to audio mp3 The Parable of the Sower    posted February 9, 2017
The parables of Jesus are earthly stories with heavenly significance. In this, one of Jesus most well known parables, we discover more about the relationship God offers to us, by his grace.
listen to audio mp3 The Suffering Judge    posted February 8, 2017
Jesus is the only judge who, instead of insisting that those who a appear before him suffer and pay the consequences, suffers himself. Worship with us as we focus on our perfect, holy, merciful and loving Judge.

listen to audio mp3 Lighten Up! Trust Me! Be Free!    posted February 3, 2017
Believe it or not, if your primary focus as a Christian is living a respectable life, you’re not living in Christ at all. If virtue is your primary goal, you’re not living in Him.

Feedback from the listeners of Plain Truth Radio.

  • I have been listening to your program for quite a while. I am very much impressed. I am getting to know God so much better. Your program is very original -and Bible-based! Thank you for making the word of God so real for myself and the multitudes who listen on the web. I will continue to pray for this work to be successful and reach many more. I am hoping to assist very soon in donations for the advancing to this ministry.

  • Greg -You are the real deal. Thank you for telling it  like it is, taking on the big time religious power brokers, and helping to turn over the money changer's tables. I love that term you used on one program -the "barnacles" on the good ship Christianity. Keep it up -and I am telling my friends about Plain Truth radio!
    -Chicago

  • Thanks for your ministry. I just got my first issue of "The Plain Truth" -a quality magazine!  I heard about it when you offered it on your radio program. I love the fact that you challenge the sacred cows of religion! I agree that we need more Jesus and less religion!
    -Oregon


  • I saw your ad on a website, and sent for your magazine -and then I found out about your radio programs. I live in Alabama and can't pick you up on local radio, so I listen to you on my computer. What a change from the religious programs I am used to. Thanks for the Plain Truth -I am a fan.
    -Alabama

  • Thank you for your programs about religion and denominationalism. I wish I could send a tape of some of your programs to every pastor in every denomination. I haven't found a spiritual home yet because of all of the infighting and conflict that I see within Christianity. I have no interest in being involved in a church that is constantly berating other churches or trying to impress me with how much better it is. Your ministry is wonderful -it is just what you say it is, the authentic, core teaching of Jesus -Christianity without all of the religion! Keep up the good work!
    -Chicago

  • Your radio program is... different... refreshing... challenging, etc. But more than that, it speaks honestly and biblically in a way that is special and necessary in a time of so many voices, and with so many of those voices not being as honest as they should be. Greg, thank you for being an able tool in the hands of our Lord and Savior. Thank you for defending the truth, with love and courage. I am very happy for the blessing of listening and reading the gospel you present. I am so much more closer to Jesus and sure of who I am in Him and all because He loved me and gave Himself for me. KEEP THE TRUTH ROLLING.

  • The more I read the Q and A's on the PTM website (www.ptm.org) the more I understand that these so-called prophecy experts are jumping to conclusions. Thanks for having such a wonderful and informative insight on God's words and plans.

  • You have helped me make a great breakthrough with my struggle with legalism.
     -Lawrence

  • You will never know how much your Internet broadcast helps to get me through the week! Your daily "bread" is a great tool in helping me understand God's Word. Thank you so much.
    Love in Christ,
    -William

Comments from those we serve

Selected comments from those who have been helped by the ministry of PTM/CWR.

New from CWR Press!

What is God like? A punishing judge? A doting grandfather? A deadbeat dad? A vengeful warrior? How do such 'good cop/bad cop' distortions of the divine arise and come to dominate churches and cultures? Whether our notions of 'god' are personal projections or inherited traditions, author and theologian Brad Jersak proposes a radical reassessment, arguing for "A More Christlike God: a More Beautiful Gospel."
