195- I Solemnly Swear

“Are you the kind of person that really needs to be proven right?” Is it hard to say “No” or let things go?

In today’s podcast and post we continue our series rediscovering the sermon on the mount as we take a closer look at the meaning behind taking an oath. We take oaths in court, or when we marry, or in certain kinds of jobs. It seems oaths and keeping promises are integral to the truth and to a society seeking to avoid corruption.

But what if oath taking has a dark side that remains invisible to us until its almost too late? Join me now as we see beyond oath taking and explore how it takes away our freedom and what the alternative might be.

194- The Divorce we Don’t See

Do you think you understand divorce? If you’re like most people, you probably see it as the very end of a marriage.

In today’s podcast and post, we continue our journey into the sermon on the mount as we reveal the wisdom behind Jesus’ teaching on divorce. We discover that what most of us think is a marriage is actually a legally binding divorce.

Join me now as we see beyond marriage as a powerplay and go deep enough to heal the wounds that keep us entombed in relationships of obligation, anger, or pain, as we discover the true meaning of love and divorce.

193- The Eighth

“When you consider the scale of the universe, do you feel small? There is a reason for that.”

Sci-Fi movies emerged out of our shared desire to explore the vastness of space. Contemplating the universe can leave us feeling small, insignificant and often leaves us with unanswered questions which feel more like burdens. 

Join me now as we continue in the second installment of the Pslams greatest hits where we visit the eighth Psalm. These times of “reflection”can grow our soul as we peek within the deepest part of our being. May this series allow us all to see beyond everything.

192- Adultery and Dismemberment

“What’s the real problem with lust and adultery?

Our world is saturated with sexual content. Lust and adultery are constant topics in all forms of modern entertainment and fewer and fewer people seem to be able to discern the line of sexual immorality, some even reject the notion all together.

In today’s podcast and post we take a closer look at lust and adultery. While most of the world thinks the problem is cheating or lying, we discover today that the problem is something far more common. Join me now as we see beyond our failed morality codes and discover the true meaning of the commandment against adultery.

191- The Freedom Illusion

Do you possess true inner freedom?”

Our country promises tremendous freedom. Despite all the great things that can be said about it, most people live in great captivity rather than freedom. Every institution holds us captive on some level and few of us find the key to inner and outer freedom.

In today’s special Fourth of July broadcast, we will explore why institutional religion promises is constituents inner freedom, but in the end becomes one of worlds biggest captors. Join me now as we see beyond power plays of captivity and learn why we seldom find personal freedom.
