286-Launch Your Life 1- What is My Life

“Is it possible you are living in despair and cannot perceive it?

Soren Kierkegaard said that the world lives in despair, refusing to become a self. If that is true then the lives that most people live are more about fiction, pretense, and self-delusion than they are about authenticity and ultimate reality. When I look at every strata of society, this is exactly what I see. In today’s podcast and post we begin a series entitled “Launch your Life” with a look at the question: “What is my life?”

Join me now as we see beyond our bodies and the way we spend our time to explore if we are ready to receive reality as it actually is, not as it is for us.

285-The Eighteenth

“Have you ever felt like those who are supposed to be leading you are not qualified or worthy to do so?

I know in our political environment that is a loaded question with an obvious answer. In today’s podcast and post we continue our ongoing series of Psalms greatest hits as we shrink down this very real, and very common point of existential pain as we look closer at what it means to trust that which is beyond ourselves.

Join me now as we look at the Eighteenth Psalm and discover that the heart of true leadership is trusting and waiting for opportunity to serve, not complaining, back biting, and hating what has already been established.

284-Part 6-The Death of Sin

“Have you ever felt as though you had two distinct parts: the good part and the bad part?

Realizing that all humanity shares both an amazing capacity for goodness as well as evil is not only a vital key of self-awareness and the means which allows us to treat other with more grace, but it is the unknown Easter story.

In today’s podcast and post, we conclude our series on sin by placing a verse in Revelations under the microscope. Not only will we see the pathogen of sin for what it is, but we discover that religion has withheld the best part of the story.

283-Part 5-The Epicenter of Suffering and Bliss

“If religion and politics have not been able to end human suffering, why do we continue to place our trust in them?”

We all know personal change is hard. We have endless blind spots and malware scripts which plague our lives, harm our relationships, and destroy our world. In today’s post and podcast, I will reverse engineer every problem in the world to it’s “Big Bang” moment found within each of us.

Join me now as we deconstruct the architecture of our oblivious life of falsehood where we will see the beauty of the design and the path which can restore the entire cosmos.

282-Part 4- The Stumbling Block of Justice

“Has religion ever produced superior people? Or just those who think they are?

In today’s podcast and post we continue our deep-dive course on the subterranean world of our sin as we look closely at how it is related to our misunderstanding of Justice. As a result, religion divides our world into sinners and saints.

Join me now as prove that retribution has been replaced with restoration, and why neither the religious nor the irreligious can handle this Good News.

281-Part 3-The Pseudo Kardia

“Do you know anyone who is deceiving themselves? Do you live in self-deceit?

In today’s podcast and post we descend into the subterranean world of the false-self and reveal that the subject is not pop-psychology, but at the very heart of Hebrew scripture and New Testament theology.

Join me now as this study unveils just how bad our sinful condition actually is, and why our study is not leading you deeper into religion.

280-Part 2-The Birth of Sin

“How do you define sin? Where did sin come from?

These are not questions exclusively for the religious minded person. In fact, all of us already possess an answer. We’ve all constructed a theological framework to address the problem of sin and evil. In today’s podcast and post, I will introduce a definition of sin which may require a theological makeover.

Join me now as we see beyond our bad deeds where I offer a glimpse of a design so beautiful that it’s almost too good to be true.

279-Time to Talk about Sin

“How well do you know the depths of your own sin?”

I know the subject of sin is extremely unpopular. When it comes up, we immediately assume we are going to be criticized, judged or threatened, and why wouldn’t we, the church has used sin to bludgeon its people into compliance and behavior modification programs. No wonder so many people are confused and put off by the subject, and why the church has become such a mess.

In today’s podcast and post we begin a series where we will mine the depths of our shadow side and become students of our own sin. Join me now as regain our equality as complete moral failures, and learn why this is beautiful and purposeful Good Newsfor the world.

278-Stop Acting Surprised by Ravi Zacharias

“Are you shocked and offended at the headlines relating to apologist Ravi Zacharias?”

By now, many of you have read the headlines about Ravi Zacharias and as I record this, leaders and ministries are pulling back from his ministry and taking a moral high ground of disassociation. This would be fine except, that is the exact opposite of what the church is called to do.

In today’s podcast and post I will use this disheartening current event to expose a fundamental area of confusion in the Christian faith, and try to steer the church back on course. Join me now as we see beyond the accusations of a top ministry leader, to expose a far more pernicious sin that is manifesting itself across Christian ministries.

277-The Fortieth

“Some people talk about God, others talk about the “universe” or some vague energy field, are they really saying the same thing?

In today’s podcast and post we rejoin our ongoing series of Psalms greatest hits with a look at the fortieth Psalm.  David shares his heart and experience with The Living God, and reveals a kind of intimacy and self-knowledge that requires a “mind” and will beyond just an energetic field.

Join me now as we see beyond our pseudo spirituality as David reveals unapologetically what it’s like to know and be known by the Elohim, the Living God.
