THANK YOU.   Thank you for listening to this podcast. Thank you for confirming that my message has value. Thank you for resonating with me and taking the journey together.   The Pitwalker Podcast will focus on the formula of the pit that I have pieced together over the last 20 years - the process of turning on the LIGHT in the DARKNESS and LIBERATING ourselves from PRISON into POWER and PURPOSE.   I have not asked for anything from you along the way, but have simply poured out my heart and sown into yours. Now I have something simple to ask: Listen to THE PITWALKER PODCAST in iTunes by clicking this link Rate it Write a review based on you knowing me for the past year through The Church is Broken Subscribe to it Share it   I ask this so that more people can hear the message and find liberation, transformation, and healing in their lives.   From the bottom of my heart, thank you.   Samuel Neider
There is a season for all things, and the season for my Church is Broken podcast has come to an end as I have faithfully delivered that specific message that was in my heart. In this final episode of the podcast, I describe the shattering of the frame by which I have lived my life for over 40 years and the process of stepping into a new, expanded frame – one that feels more uncertain than I have ever experienced. Through this journey I’ve realized that my calling is to a broader audience – any man or woman who is seeking to grow, to become more than they are today. As human beings created in the image of God, we all have an innate desire and drive to grow. But growth is not easy. In fact, growth is often painful because it requires that we break through barriers, obstacles, habits, thought patterns, bondage, ways of operating, ways of seeing the world, darkness, etc. that keep us from becoming the person we desire to be. All these things that hold us back are the “PIT” and the only way for us to become the person we’re created to be is by walking through our pit. There is simply no other way. Over the past 20 years of my life I have experienced walking through my pit 100’s of times and my engineering brain coupled with my healer’s heart has developed a process for pit walking, based on universal truths, that leads to liberation, transformation, and spontaneous growth for anyone who is willing. If you are a seeker and desire to become more than who you are today, then join me for THE PITWALKER PODCAST that launches on April 15, 2019.  
On my family trip to Disneyland I  saw this sign at the gate: “HERE YOU LEAVE TODAY AND ENTER THE LAND OF TOMORROW YESTERDAY AND FANTASY.” As humans we have been conditioned to spend so much time in the past, in the future, and in fiction that we remain in a cycle that leads to nowhere. To get where we want to go our starting point must be rooted in the reality of now. _____________________________________________ Welcome to THE CHURCH IS BROKEN podcast.

The RV saga continues as I go to finalize the purchase and pick up my brand new RV trailer home. Everything looked beautiful on the outside, but then I discovered a problem “under the hood” as I looked under the trailer chassis and saw that it was covered with surface rust and corrosion. Find out what I decided to do, and what we all must do with the RUST IN OUR SOULS. _____________________________________________ Welcome to THE CHURCH IS BROKEN podcast.

The pain, the darkness, the process... This week I entered into one of the most profound experiences of my life to date. Walk with me through my pit, all the way into the darkness, to a taproot of pain, and witness the power and beauty that I found as my son freed me from a generational cycle in my family as he showed me what it is to love. To know that I am loved. To know that I AM LOVE. _____________________________________________ Welcome to THE CHURCH IS BROKEN podcast.

The process of growth and becoming is painful. Think about a seed cracking open to grow, or a baby being born. Nothing about the process is warm and fuzzy. In this episode I’m going to bring you into my pain and darkness – not after I have passed through it and have a great story to tell – but right in the middle of it, as I am in the darkness of another cavern of my pit. Here’s the good news: I know the way to find the light and truth. I know that liberation and power awaits me. So listen in and stay tuned as this unfolds real time… _____________________________________________ Welcome to THE CHURCH IS BROKEN podcast.

Sometimes the Voice in our heart tells us to do things beyond logic – things that make no sense whatsoever. In this episode, find out the latest leap of faith the VOICE lead me to take, the FLOW that ensued between my wife and me, and the DECISION we made together that will change the TRAJECTORY of our family’s life forever.

DIVINITY is within us all, but many people wander through life and never access this POWER inside.  When we’re truly in tune with GOD in our HEART, we enter into a state of FLOW - a state where things seem effortless and CREATION ushers forth from us without struggle. In this state of FLOW we discover what it means to become an INSTRUMENT of GOD, wielded by Him to bring heaven to earth.  In this episode, I discuss my process to access FLOW as an INSTRUMENT OF GOD by doing WORK to make myself PRESENT and CONNECTED in a posture of SUBMISSION, and then making the CHOICE to do His will and not mine.   _____________________________________________ Welcome to THE CHURCH IS BROKEN podcast.

As a man there is no greater source of POWER than when your relationship with your wife is aligned and in harmony.  And there is also no greater source of PARALYSIS when it is not.  This is because we are ONE with our spouse - a SPIRITUAL UNION created through the physical act of being "joined" to one another.  The mystery of marriage is profound and deep.  When it is on fire it activates our SUPERPOWER.  When it is floundering, it acts as KRYPTONITE.  Find out how I screwed up in my marriage in a major way by forgetting to take care of something so BASIC. _____________________________________________ Welcome to THE CHURCH IS BROKEN podcast.

We all have FEARS.  Many of them reside in our subconscious based on past experiences that we may be completely unaware of.  In order to conquer our fears and move into a new POSSIBILITY, we must first NAME them.  Once we name them and begin to FACE them, we begin a deep dive into the PIT of our soul.  It is in the PIT that we come FACE to FACE with our greatest FEARS and PAIN.  Listen today as I walk you through my pit and conquering on of my most deep seeded FEARS, and learn how you can do the same. _____________________________________________ Welcome to THE CHURCH IS BROKEN podcast.

WHO are you allowing to TEACH your children spiritually and WHAT are they teaching them?  As parents we must understand that what our children learn about God and the Bible at a young age will have a significant IMPACT on their SPIRITUAL GROWTH throughout their life.  I want my kids to learn the stories of the Bible, but I do NOT want them to learn DOCTRINE and THEOLOGY, because ultimately, I want my kids to learn to live a life of FAITH based on REVELATION, not a life of SIGHT based on INFORMATION.  It may seem like a small distinction in what they learn, but the consequences can be significant. _____________________________________________ Welcome to THE CHURCH IS BROKEN podcast.

Endurance is the ability to keep pressing on even through significant PAIN and SUFFERING.  In a biblical sense, Jesus is the living example of what it means to endure.  So how do we find the POWER and the WILL to endure in the face of the most trying circumstances?  Jesus saw a JOY set before Him that EMPOWERED Him to SACRIFICE Himself.  When you embark on that next challenge in your life, what is the JOY that will allow you to ENDURE anything that comes your way? _____________________________________________ Welcome to THE CHURCH IS BROKEN podcast.

THE STORIES that we tell ourselves create our REALITY. I recently came to the realization that the stories I’ve told myself my entire life have ROBBED me of HAPPINESS.  In COMPARING myself to others, I robbed myself of the ability to CREATE JOY. Where in your life are you doing the same?  It's time to remove your victim mindset and begin creating the life that you desire. Today I challenge you to create a new meaning for the word HAPPINESS and RE-CREATE YOUR REALITY. _____________________________________________ Welcome to THE CHURCH IS BROKEN podcast.

Anything we try to BUILD in our lives requires a SOLID foundation.  When we set an IMPOSSIBLE CHALLENGE for ourselves, it’s going to take many evolutions to hit that TARGET.  If you try to attack that CHALLENGE without first building your FOUNDATION, your dream is certain to crumble.  Ask yourself:  where are the weak spots in my FOUNDATION?  Whether it’s in your body, being, balance, or business, fortifying these weak spots will propel you toward achieving your IMPOSSIBLE GAME. _____________________________________________ Welcome to THE CHURCH IS BROKEN podcast.

Without the foundation of REALITY and TRUTH we established in the last episode, VISION is worthless.  Once we’ve built a foundation based in REALITY, then it’s possible to reach into our heart and see a VISION of the person we will become. On New Year’s Eve I saw the version of myself that I will become in a year, and that person can be described in one word: UNSHAKEABLE.  Today I challenge you to do the same.  What is the one word that represents the person you will become by January 1, 2020? _____________________________________________ Welcome to THE CHURCH IS BROKEN podcast.

90% of people who make resolutions for the new year will not last more than 3 weeks. Why is this? One big reason is that when people think about their goals – what they want to do and have, who they want to become – they operate in the realm of fantasy. And all you can build in the realm of FANTASY is FICTION. In the Warrior’s Way, we always start from the realm of REALITY, the realm of TRUTH, which is based on FACTS. If you want to build something REAL in 2019, get REAL about the FACTS in your life first. _____________________________________________ Join Samuel Neider, a former pastor, on his journey of enlightenment as he shares his story of walking through darkness and despair to lay hold of the LIGHT that he could not find in 30 years of seeking, searching, and serving in the church.

For most of my life I thought that holding on to the anger of all the wrongs that had been done to me somehow gave me power over the people who had wronged me. WRONG!! Holding on was actually eating me up inside and hurting the people in my life I loved the most. But I had no ability to forgive. Finally, things got so dark that I allowed myself to be led through a process of forgiveness, and what I discovered LIBERATED me. Are you ready to finally experience what it is to forgive? _____________________________________________ Welcome to THE CHURCH IS BROKEN podcast.

Most of us have been taught to operate in the world based on our mind – our cognitive understanding, logic and reasoning. Most Christians have been taught in the same way, to understand that we are forgiven; that Jesus died for us and that once we accept Him, it is a fact that we are forgiven. Yet the moment we do something that causes guilt and shame, the “fact” of our forgiveness buckles under the feelings of our “sin.” Forgiveness must be EXPERIENCED EMOTIONALLY before it can become our REALITY, because what we know in our mind is an illusion, but what we know in our HEART is REAL. _____________________________________________ Welcome to THE CHURCH IS BROKEN podcast.

When is a business problem not actually a business problem? 100% of the time. Realizing that you don’t have a marketing, sales, systems etc. problem in your business, but that you have a “you” problem is one of the hardest things to accept. But the moment you accept that the problem is you is the moment you can begin to turn your business problem around. Listen to find out how my failed partnership brought me to some painful realizations that led me to where I am today. _____________________________________________ Welcome to THE CHURCH IS BROKEN podcast.

The expectations we have of the people in our lives are often the very things holding them back. For many years I imprisoned my wife with my expectations, limiting her in the pursuit of her passion and purpose. At the end of the day, we as leaders can either be JAIL KEEPERS or LIBERATORS of those we lead. Listen to find out how. __________________________________________ Welcome to THE CHURCH IS BROKEN podcast.

#29 spoke directly to me today. I've spent a lot of years trying to "fix" inadequacies in my marriage and my kids only to have it blow up in my face. Once I began telling the truth and telling them what I truly want did I realize I didn't need to fix anything, just be there and show up in their lives

Ok, #3 is revealing. The guy is an insecure narcissist, e.g., for the 3rd or 4th time. he's bragged about being big and intimidating. Oh. I'm afraid... then he's upset bc the older folks don't I I me the new music. Old news. No older person likes the new music! His solution: the system is screwed. To me he's mouthing the political debate that dominates the news today; Trump and his GOP Right Wing Extremists and the Left that hates the old, good ole boy system that has dominated since LBJ v Goldwater. But, I might listen to a couple more bc he's still a pretty compelling speaker. high!

not sure why I'm continuing to listen to this podcast, I guess it's bc the narrator weaves mystery and anticipation, so you keep on going to the next chapter. I don't even know what his wife said in #1 that got him so upset. In #2 the article of faith that's got him so mad, I can guess (salvation only thru Jesus)? Oh well, here goes another 20-mins, on to #3.

I often think that if Jesus the Messiah were among us today in form, he would likely not have any association with any of the brands of modern "religious" Christianity, except to occasionally drop by to flip some tables, or maybe flog a few money changers.

I know your wrong . God is real. Your way is wrong . You have to see it to believe it don't you. HaHaHa Those who believe in Christ with all there heart will be saved. That means with out seeing but believing in Christ. So I will not judge you for your beliefs , but I will pray you will see the Christian way.

I like a lot of what Sam has to share. Would appreciate about 100% less animated raising of his voice when he shares.

I have met a diverse group of people who feel exactly the same way about The Church. More money and time is invested into a building (and other THINGS), than in people. Folks are leaving with broken hearts and end up turning away from the faith altogether. Too much idol worship going on instead of praising God. I appreciate your podcast, and I hope that you will continue. Nice to know I'm not standing alone...
