“What are the two signs that a person is stuck in a religious mind? Apathy or Offense.
In today’s podcast and post we will observe the convergence of two ongoing series, that of Hebrews and that of the Psalms. By bringing these two together, just as the author of Hebrews does, we gain a portal through which we can see the limitations of the religious mind, and why the author pulls from his own Hebrew scripture to make his point.
Join me now as we explore the religious mind found in the skeptic and the devout, and learn why being “all in” or “all out” both rob humanity of our ability to see the bigger story and our need to deconstruct everything that isn’t it.
“Have you ever compared the modern church to the one depicted in the Bible?
The difference is shocking. In today’s podcast and post we explore how over the centuries, the church has morphed from a community gathering into a global institutional power, complete with cradle to the grave programs, full-time staff members, and a political force of counter-cultural propaganda. Was that the goal of its Founder?
Join me now as we see beyond our jumbotrons, worship bands and fog machines, and learn how the Church started back then and how to discern the “real” thing amidst our culturally contrived institutions.
“Looking at the world, do you think any of us has a thirst for God?
We see people with a thirst for power. We see those we thirst for revenge, control, or self-promotion. But what does it look like to thirst for God? In today’s podcast and post we look closer at our “inner longings” and discover that our misguided pursuits often started as a search for God.
Join me now as we learn to see beyond our surface level impulses and discover what it really means to thirst after the Lord.
“Do you have a hostile mind or is it only “those people” who do?
In today’s podcast and post we take a look at the fastest growing religion in the world: Politics. We’ll explore why it has generated so much power, and ignites such hatred and division among us. Is there any hope for our world?
Join me now as we see beyond the quagmire of the political binary and explore how it’s possible for this dividing line of hostility to be eradicated, and how the world can be set free from its bondage to a hostile mind and healed through the power of love.
“What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word “Christ?”
Whether our reaction is to cringe or draw closer, every one of us has a Christology. In today’s podcast and post, I’ll show that Christ is not Jesus’ last name and we’ll look at the implications of not understanding the cosmic role of “The Christ.”
Join me now, as we deconstruct some of our Christological assumptions and reveal a “religion-less”way of Christ following that allows us to see beyond everything.
I know that’s an uncomfortable question. In fact it’s the type of question that causes a subtle, but devious internal reaction within us whereby we avoid answering. It’s far easier to point the finger at those more wicked than our self.
In today’s podcast and post we pause our other topics to pick up our more introspective series on Psalms Greatest Hits. The Thirty-Sixth Psalm begins a row of soul scouring reflections. Join me now as we see beyond our rejection of morality into that which is trying to find us within our most lost condition.
How does life change for you if you were the heir to billions? Wouldn’t that reality provide a safety net for you? What would living be like to have the certainty and freedom to go or do anything your heart desired? It might surprise you to know that that experience is possible for every single person.
In today’s podcast, we continue our exploration of Galatians and learn that each of us is an heir to a divine inheritance. Join me know as we see beyond how this is possible and learn what it means to live freely as an heir.
If you can answer this question, then you are part of a small percentage of the world that is in the know. In today’s broadcast, I will not only share what the Blockchain is, but explore just how this game changing technology has the power to subvert institutional power.
Join me now we consider the spiritual realities that are beyond the Blockchain and learn how this revolutionary technology could usher in a new kind of world.
In this podcast and post I will use two metaphors to illuminate spiritual reality. The orbit of our planets move in and out of proximity to our sun based upon speed and distance. In like manner our spiritual orbits all vary and all of us need to fine tune this orbit if life is to thrive and we are to avoid freezing or scorching. Secondarily, molting represents the necessary outgrowing of our external formative container. We know we are ready to molt when we can imagine the world better than it is. We all experience a gravity (Pull) or a compulsion to expand (Push). I will show you how to access this benevolent force that pulls and pushes us into a way better life.
