ABOUT JIM ROBBINS
Jim's core message:
Thanks for connecting. I am a former pastor, turned author, who writes especially for Christians who are tired of being told they are 'prone to wander.' It's the biggest myth in Christianity today.
Don't get me wrong, before we come to Christ, our heart [nature, core being] is 'prone to wander;' yet after we enter friendship with Jesus a wholesale change takes place immediately: We are given new natures, new hearts and appetites for loving and living well.
Our hearts become our allies, not our enemies. Spiritual growth isn't about hoping for holiness: It's about releasing a goodness you already have - that you were given the moment you said, "yes," to Him. You can still sin, but it's not in your heart to do so any longer.
During the late ’90’s, I was asked by author and futurist, Leonard Sweet [Soul Tsunami, Aqua Church, and Jesus Manifesto,] to serve on a ministry consulting team Len Sweet was forming.
I've also led and trained worship arts/ design teams before transitioning into a writing/speaking ministry.
LISTEN TO THE INTERVIEW: I was interviewed by nationally-known radio host, Steve Brown. The Steve Brown Etc. show is a nationally-syndicated radio show hosted by author, seminary profesor, and broadcaster, Steve Brown.
Steve Brown has interviewed the likes of John Eldredge, Tony Campolo, Larry Crabb, and Leonard Sweet.
Current book: "RECOVER YOUR GOOD HEART"
What do you believe about your heart?
Many Christians have been told that their heart is still 'prone to wander' and 'deceitfully wicked' even after they come to Christ.
This one teaching has crippled our churches and left Christians unable to carry the 'easy yoke of Jesus.'
Praise for Jim's book:
