Reviews For Mosaic - Erwin McManus

It’s a truly blessing for me to be able to listen you your podcast while working. God uses you in a beautiful way to bring His message into my life. Victoria
We are not able to attend meetings due to our location and we so appreciate being able to hear the positive messages from the Mosaic family in LA!
My favorite podcast for so many reason. Inspiring, challenging, faith building, and Jesus loving. Thank you Mosaic!


Erwin, all of Mosaic and MSC are simply incredible. I listen to every message many times over because the word is just so good and meaningful and inspiring!! The MSC music is out of this world good! So very thankful to be able to listen to these podcasts and this music!! THANK YOU!
Erwin McManus has definitely inspired me to be all that God says I am! I to him as a spiritual father because he has already lived life and I can learn so much from him! I have found myself not being afraid to live life and if I make a mistake with a choice then it’s okay because it’s not the end of the world.. on the contrary I can learn from my mistakes and move forward! I love the encouragement!! I love Kim McManus too she’s so inspirational to me! Their kids are great influences in my life as well! They are living not in a bubble but in the world and making it a better place by empowering us to go out and be the change we want to see!! #tribe - this is my tribe! I found them!
Living overseas, podcasts are one of the main ways that I receive Truth so I can go out and live it and share it. This is one of my favorite podcasts! Thank you for making these sermons accessible from anywhere in the world!
Erwin’s combination of common sense, and simplicity breaking down the word with empassioned delivery is something to behold. He is absolutely my favorite. Our whole family loves him. God has truly gifted this man & he is an amazing disciple
As a Christian business owner I find this podcast to be exactly what I am looking for. Inspiration yet challenging at the same time to be authentic in both my life and my business. Absolutely loved his series on his book “The Last Arrow”. Wished I lived in LA to attend live but very grateful for the podcast.
I love this podcast in the style of Erwin’s teaching of the Bible he breaks down the principles in a way that’s easy for anyone to understand and relate since you’re real life 2018 life suggestions
Why did you take down the "truth between us series"? I mean, this other stuff Is okay, but that series was so raw and something every "Christian" should be exposed to and hear. Unfortunately this topic seems to be something most churches are afraid to dive into. - Lloyd
It’s heartbreaking to listen to. Claims that it’s Christ-Centered, but it’s all about YOU. Just another self help, human potential gnostic.
I love the way Erwin McManus articulates ideas! He brings fresh insight and expression to everything he talks about!

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!


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


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.
