242- We are ALL being Played

“What do you think is happening in our world?”

If you think we are watching our communities react to the pain of social injustice, look closer. Both sides are being played like a well-tuned instrument. The pressure to pit us against one another has never been stronger, but if you think the reason is political, your still not seeing it.

In today’s podcast and post I will unveil the pernicious assault on the human soul and the only way to stop it. Join me now for a podcast that none of us will like as we see beyond our pain and anger into the power behind the whole mess.

241- The World is Opening. Are you?

“The world is opening back up, have you done the same?”

Spring is here, the economy and plight of humanity has reached the breaking point and people are easing back into life. For over two months, most of the world has been locked inside, and now we must take an inventory of how we handled this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

In today’s podcast and post, I will ask four key questions that will probe whether or not we squandered this unique opportunity. Did we get carried along by our impulses, emotions, and the media? Or did we navigate the storm with our bearings on true North? Join me now as we deconstruct the soul which we are bringing back to the world.

240- Perfect Imperfection

“Do you think you’ve known enough suffering? Maybe not.

As I produce this podcast, the pandemic is thrusting our world into countless forms of suffering. In Columbia, Brazil and Mexico, the starvation has already gone beyond the miles of food lines that Americans get to drive up to. We all want to turn our face from suffering, but when we do, we miss something transformative.

In today’s podcast and post I’m going to offer a definition of suffering that most will reject. Join me now as we see beyond the circumstances that have thrust pain upon us and stare deeply into that which can transform our world.

239- Group Think, Hive Mind and Collective Consciousness

“Do you think your thoughts are actually yours? Think again.

Like the air around us, we pay very little attention to the influence of the collective consciousness that exists in our midst. You may call it Group Think, or the Hive Mind of the Borg, but there is no denying that there is a larger consciousness that influences more than we recognize.

In today’s podcast and post we see beyond Group Think at the osmotic flow of consciousness and learn why missing it is often called darkness. Join me now as we learn a simple truth about being semi-permeable that may very well save our world.

238- These are NOT uncertain times…

“Do you think there is a bigger story beyond the pandemic? 

I’ll bet your answer reveals your political bias. As our world splinters deeper into factions, I’ll show that our battle with uncertainty is not one of finding the truth, it’s that of authority. Are the expertsall telling the truth? Is there a conspiracy behind it all? 

In today’s podcast and post, we will look beyond the headlines into the most provable conspiraciesof human history. From there I will show you the prescription for humanity where both diversity and unity coexist and we discover that these are NOT uncertain times.

237- Deconstruction and the Rich Young Ruler

“What does it mean that a camel can fit through the eye of a needle easier than a rich person can enter the kingdom of God?”

Pay attention to your answer because it reflects a set of assumptions about money and justice that are likely not even in this story. In today’s post and podcast we see beyond the story of the Rich Young Ruler to discover why deconstruction is the true spiritual path.

Join me now as we consider a paradoxical kind of society where once we see it, we can’t imagine a world any other way.

236- We don’t FEAR infection…

“Are you afraid of catching COVID-19?” Actually, you aren’t…

Fear and uncertainty is ramping up and doubling faster than any infection of coronavirus. Our anxieties are high, and now politics is playing the binary banjo strings to pit us against one another again. In today’s podcast and post, I will explain what all the fear is really about.

Join me now as we see beyond the fear propaganda machines, and look deeper at the existential reality of losing our life. This portal allows us to see the thing we really ought to fear.

234- FREEaster

“How can a Middle Eastern man from two-thousand years ago make us free?”

It’s Easter Sunday and all over the world, people’s personal freedoms have been stifled due to the pandemic. This allows us to see two very different views on freedom which permeate every aspect of our lives. In today’s podcast and post we will look beyond the pandemic at these two worldviews through the lens of the Easter story.

Join me now as we see beyond the two thieves (belief and unbelief) and discover how the Easter story offers a third perspective which bring lasting freedom.

233- What’s so Good about This Friday?

“With the world turned upside down, what is so Good about this Friday?”

Throughout the world, Christians are trying to celebrate Holy Week in unconventional ways due to the global pandemic. With all the bad news that is happening around us, you may have wondered where God is in all of this. If so, you are not alone. Many are asking: if there is an all-powerful God, why hasn’t he/she done anything?

In today’s podcast and post, I will answer this pressing question in a way that will allow all comers to see God’s work as easily as they see their own hand. Join me now as we see beyond the suffering of the world and get a solid reason why today is called Good Friday.

Lockdown Exposes What’s Real This Easter

“Do you really want things to go back to how they were? I don’t.”

I told you last week, we’d be in this for a while and now the novelty is wearing off. So many memes and GIF’s circulating about how we are getting on each other’s nerves. While good for a laugh, the underlying truth must be exposed. In today’s podcast and post I will prove that the lockdown is not creating relationship problems, it is exposing them.

Join me now as we take a sobering look beyond the issues at home and into our communities of faith. This Palm Sunday, let’s hope the real Easter emerges from the inside out. If it does, the world won’t have to go back to how it was.
