I have been so moved by Erwin's words. I can't explain the wholeness I have found through this podcast. So much hope and life. I share his podcast with so many. Grateful
I have listened for over 20 years to Erwin's insights and have always found him unique in his depth and call to live greatly. This series is changing me. Listen, spread this talk like a juicy rumor - God is on the move!
I first heard Erwin McManus speak at my old Church in Melbourne, Australia 9 years ago and it changed my life. For the first time I heard someone who spoke straight to my soul and showed me what a relationship with Jesus really looked like. I’m forever grateful and so will you be by listening to his talks.
Pastor Erwin uses his voice and platform to always call us to more.
This podcast truly changed my life. Erwin is incredible at teaching people how to lead and how to love, and constantly calling and directing them to a deeper relationship with Jesus. So thankful for this podcast!
McManus doesn't try to be something he isn't. This is real, genuine Scripture based teaching with applications for today and tomorrow.
I'm an atheist. Listening to McManus makes you think that if there is a god, Erwin knows who it is. There is hope and challenge behind his messages.
Each and every talk hits right home. His practical and down to earth style makes the Word applicable to every area of life. P.S Praying for your speedy recovery
Erwin is the best speaker I've ever heard, his messages have truly changed my life! His approach is completely disarming & refreshing. Check this out, you will not be disappointed!
This podcast is very encouraging.
I absolutely love listening to this podcast!
So thankful for this podcast and the heartbeat of Mosaic. I appreciate Erwin's honesty, conviction, and love.
Mosaic has forever change my life. I am thankful for this community that deeply cares about telling the story of the gospel to people regardless of where they are in life. I am forever grateful!
I've had the privilege of hearing Erwin in person in Hollywood and each time I am inspired, comforted and edified. His insights and excited delivery encourages growth in my knowledge of how God works in our lives, and how we are called right where we are, right now, to be examples of God's diversity in love. This is not religion, this isn't a typical church experience, this is the narrative of a man who has done many things and seen many miracles. Erwin is a follower of Christ who welcomes all; regardless of the labels others put on us, or the labels we put on ourselves. I listen to the podcasts at work and it calms my worries, relieves my impatience and brings clarity to my questions about which path I am to follow. I've heard some of these more than once and each time, something new is revealed to me. Thanks for helping this artist Erwin, and helping all the other artisans who are searching for their dreams.
I stumbled across Mosaic about a year ago and have been Hooked ever since. Love the messages these guys are sending out. Thier group gives me hope for the new churches. I don't see the old normal, hipocracy of organized religion.
I love Mosaic Podcast! I can say without any hyperbole that it had a major impact on my life…my faith and my life would not be the same without it. Just out of curiosity, I know that Hank preached the last few sermons but it seems that the ones uploaded the past few weeks are Erwin’s. I wanted to ask someone about this but there are no comments and questions section on the mosaic website which is why I’m leaving a message here.
lol Erwin is “john the baptist” of our time! He speaks with raw passion and isn’t afraid to speak the truth. Really great to listen to!
Erwin has done what most pastors refused to do, and that's tell the world that creativity is not a personality, its a calling that God has given us all. As an artist from Oklahoma I love hearing Erwin's take on applying creativity to the word of God, and he does it in way that doesn't add or take away.
Finally a place where every part of my curiosity is met. Where the teaching is funny, smart, and on point. And as person who so been needing more to my spiritual life and losing faith and being annoyed by church, this is a well needed breathe of fresh air. Also, not once felt out of place, even though I don't know anyone.
I find this podcast to be very uplifting, relavent and inspiring. People from a variety of backgrounds will find Erwin and the other speakers to be engaging a thought provoking.
I live in Miami and my Aunt recently moved to LA and started attending this church. She loved it of course and spread the word! I listen every Wednesday! (That's when the Sunday sermon gets uploaded)
I love these sermons and I used to listen to them every week. I am a Christian from the Midwest and Mosaic is everything Christianity should be. The problem is that I changed by podcast listings to block out explicit content, it also blocks out Content labeled as clean as well
Just a thank you to Erwin, Hank and mosaic for the Podcasts. Furthermore, Thank You for NOT getting hung up on Islam and a host of other "religiously correct" topics such as Sin, Law, Sin Religious Rituals, Sin, Religious Habits, more Sin, Proper Church Etiquette etc.... To those who need to be preached to about such matters, there are numerous well spoken, loud mouthed, televangelical type Podcasts to pick from. Simply download those instead of Mosaic. Again, Thank You.
LESS than 1 star rating if I could. This guy is blind to the evils of Islam and he has been duped by Islam completely. Sadly there are many like him out there in the world today who claim to be bringers of the Gospel of Jesus Christ..yet what they say denies Jesus Christ at the very same time.
One of my favorite pastors to listen to. Erwin creates in me a desire to pursue The Lord. Thank you Erwin!

5/5

My faith has grown so much from these podcasts. Thank you for helping apply faith to the culture in which I live.

5/5

Powerful and compelling--and convicting--to purposely pursue relationship with those around me and especially with God!
About what the previous poster said. If Islam is a return to the faith of Abraham than neither Moses nor Yeshua would be considered prophets. They would have to be either 100% correct or false prophets. It's not 50/50. Yeshua's disciples saw him as GOD come in the flesh. That is why they were willing to risk their lives and die in gruesome ways & still not deny the truth. Anyways. I'm just a little confused by what they were saying I guess. You can't have both Islam & Christianity be true yet deny Judaism & Yeshua being who he said he was.
I believe that Erwin is trying to do some good Although his goal appears to be converting non-Christians to Christianity rather than educate, I feel the need to clarify some points. Erwin speaks about a central tenet of Judaism being that God has given us free will. This is also a central tenet of Islam as well. God knows what will happen in the future because God is a timeless being. One can think of God as having created time when He created the universe: the day and the night in Genesis. This does not mean that our lives are predetermined in Islam as in the 'Calvinistic' view Erwin mentioned in his Islam podcast Muslims believe God gave us free will since this is clearly stated in the Quran. Muslims can be mistaken about this as can Christians because it is a difficult concept. Just because God knows the outcome does not mean that he makes us do good or evil, it is our free will that determines our choices including asking for His help. In addition, as Muslims our acts on Earth are not what determines whether we go to heaven. We go to heaven by the grace of God. There is an interesting story told by Prophet Mohamed regarding a very pious man who prayed, gave to charity, went on Hajj and did all manner of good in his life. If people saw this man they would say that surely if anyone was going to heaven then it would be this righteous man. However, on Judgment Day this man could be given the choice to have his good deeds weighed in the balance of his bad deeds to determine whether or not he would go to heaven, but the wise choice according to Prophet Mohamed would be for him to ask for God's mercy and ask for His grace because not one of us goes to heaven on his or her own merits but by the grace of God. So when a Muslim does good works in His or her life they do it out of love and devotion to God and also to be worthy of God's grace. Not every Muslim understands this, but it is written in the Quran. Take a look at what James the brother of Jesus said in James 2:14-17: 14 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? 15 Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. 16 If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. Who would know Jesus better than his little brother? Anyway, Islam can be thought of as a return to the original faith of Abraham through the new revelations of Mohamed. Where Moses is a revered prophet, but the meticulous rules of Leviticus don't apply. Where some corrections have been provided such as the sin in the garden of Eden was Adam and Eve's together rather than with Eve as the instigator. Where Jesus is a beloved prophet of God as he was to his disciples before the Greek and Roman influence created a new doctrine.
I love listening to you often, I would like if there was a way to find more of the sermon series from farther back than 16 weeks, but that could be an iTunes thing. Keep up the Faith.
You have lots of avid listeners out here who are missing you! We can't fly to Cali every weekend, so we rely on the podcast. Hope all is well.
Missing the podcast! Missing the podcast! Please bring back! Please bring back!
What happen? It's been a month with no podcast.
I like their messages but you can't count on regular postings. They skip 3 or 4 weeks and then they will post a few and catch up and then fall behind again. With that said I do love the honesty of Erwins heart in his messges
He has a lot of insight into culture, but is very poor with Scripture. I guess you can't ask for much more from a self proclaimed "Cultural Architect." I just listened to a few sermons. He obviously does not understand the sovereignty of God or Calvin and his positions. He misrepresented Calvinism, changes Scripture in order to make a point and manipulates verses to say something completely opposite of the original intent (which is very dangerous). He never stays in one part of the bible to make a coherent argument and I just have a hard time listening to him struggle to speak. I'm pretty sure he is a universalist, but I haven't heard enough of him to really know. His "gospel" is to love others, and has a vague sense of sin. The biggest issue I have with the few sermons I have listened to is this... He is better than you. He gets it. How come you don't? Why haven't you stepped into your potential and intention? Obviously since he believes that it is all up to us to make ourselves alive (but of course he doesn't believe we are dead so what's the point of being made alive?) then it depends on you to love God and love others. You are better off listening to Mark Driscoll or Matt Chandler if you want to hear "hip" preaching, at least they preach from Scripture and not from their own philosophy. If you want the true gospel that will make the dead come alive listen to Paul Washer, John Piper, Tim Keller, Paul Washer, RW Glenn, Al Mohler and others who are true to Scripture and have a real reverence for Christ and his gospel.
On one side you have Erwin reaching lost with a softer gentler (non-confrontational?) approach. On the other side someone like John Pipper - speaking the truth without appology. Who's right . . . I believe they both are. They may have different approaches to the same issue but they are working on the same issues. I love listening to both - both help renew my mind Rom 12:2. Both build me up in Christ and help me to shape my own approach. Both should probably come a little closer to where the other is :-). To both I say "thank you"
What a blessing to recently hear Erwin speak at my church, Forefront Church in NYC. It was my first time to hear him speak, although I had previously read his books. Now I'm listening to the Mosaic podcasts and God is teaching me valuable lessons through the sermons. It's amazing how God works.
These are the best I am being fed everyday at work When are new ones coming out?
I don't live in LA but download Mosaic podcasts every week. Thankful for God speaking thru them
I have been listening to Erwin and guests since July '08 and I look forward to every new podcast. Very valuable.
This is a great podcast - I never get tired of listening to Erwin McManus - he is inspired by something greater than himself, and has an incredible gift to deliver that inspiration in creative, motivating, sensitive ways. Where's the "Falling Forward" series, though? I only got 2 of the 4 podcasts, and they were really awesome! Is ITunes only downloading a selected few? If so, who does the selecting? Let them know - they are missing out, and thereby causing many others to miss out! Go Erwin - stay "unbalanced" (from his Wide Awake, Create, sermon) - as long as you remain centered in Christ, you're apt to look unbalanced to everyone else! - That's an okay thing in this day and age!
This has to be one of my favorites, if not my favorite podcast on the network today. I am only 14 and if this podcast can catch and hold my attention there is no telling how many people it is reaching. Erwin Mcmanus is a great speaker who knows about the culture around us, and how we can better ourselves and let God lead and use us to influence others lives. Great Podcast!
cannot wait to get the update from week to week. This is in my top 5 podcasts and I listen to MANY podcasts as I go about my day.
At times I find Erwin McManus refreshing, and at times I find him to be one of those Christian leaders who aren't sure whether the present day culture should hold sway over the church as opposed to vice versa. I give him credit for all of his innovation, but most of the time...after watching and listening to a Mosaic message... I find my self askingthe question, "where is the glory, power, and simplicity of the Gospel message."
I look forward to each week. It is so amazing to connect Jesus to the Universe and to realize that you are free in the spirituality of it all. I am so excited about what God is doing in that community and hope to one day be able to be apart of that community. I also urge you to read any of Erwin's book, not only is he am amazing pastor but and great innovative writer.
Erwin McManus is a fantastic speaker and author. His focus on the heart of our faith is timely and spot-on. Though some critique him, I would challenge them to produce real, in-context quotes that would prove he is not devoted to the truth of God. You will most likely find none that stick, because he is devoted to truly following the heart of God. I recommend this podcast to any believer, with a word of advice. Take some time to think about what he says, and weigh it and balance it your heart and mind for maximum impact.

5/5

All of these podcasts are amazing! I am so impressed with the honesty and faithfulness of Mosaic. Erwin cares so much about humanity and that is evidenced throughout his sermons. These podcasts are challenging and interesting. Thanks! Monterey Bay, CA
Erwin Mcmanus connects better with his hearers than almost anyone I have had the privilege to see and hear. He also has a way of turning scripture around like a gem to see different facet of truth that were not readily apparent. But he needs to work at making Christ more central. A clear preaching of Christ crucified and risen is not always there. I hope that he works to bring the cross of Christ to the center of his messages. Without a doubt, God has given Erwin a gift, but it is the gospel of Christ alone that can truly change hearts.
I've never been so excited to listen each week to a podcast as to this one. Today I've listened to several sermons and I just can't stop. I love what this church is doing and I grow so much just from listening to the sermons. Everytime God points out something new or reminds me of old lessons I need to re-learn. I believe that God is doing amazing thing through this church and I hope to continue to learn from this podcast.
