Mainline denominations are in decline. The church’s response is to blame the culture and claim that it no longer has any desire for God. In this podcast and post I will show that modern people are very curious and interested in God, but their consciousness has outgrown a regressive, tribal, and threatening portrait of God. While institutionalized religion needs this image of God to sustain itself, individuals don’t. Faith is ultimately between oneself and God (Rom 14:22), thus the image of God is not some man “up there” somewhere, but the power within us showing up as our very life.
